    Hi everyone I really need some help! I stand to win £100 bonus in next 12 hours the bonus has 40x wagering attached. I have a choice of WMS,NET-ENT,Next Gen,MG,IGT etc to spin on. I've never had such a large wagering to complete before. What game should I begin with what bet size if I bet small 4k will take ages and I'd be delighted to even have £100 after doing it! Which variance slots would you play I was thinking maybe mix between GOT243 and Immortal Romance at 30p stakes to make my cash last. Also to build up higher while doing wagering simultaneously. I can't complain too much as it's a big bonus and if I play correctly I could make massive winnings with it the last time I had so much to play with I got the money up to nearly £2,000 will I play high risk and potentially bust or should I go for medium to small variance. I wouldn't ask if it wasn't such a large wagering but none of my faithful games are working at all right now anywhere.

    How patient are you? Could you sit for hours on end trying to grind the bonus through? If yes, it should be a grinding low variance slot, if no it needs to be a high variance volatile slot that will mean you risk busting out long before the W/R is met, but there will be an outside chance that you will be able to build your bank to allow you to meet the W/R.
    I dont play too many slots, so I would go DOA and pray that you hit a wild line!!

    You will need good fortune whichever slot you play. The only thing that would cross my mind would be to not exceed the bonus terms in regards to bet size and stake variation. Other than that I would just trust to luck on something high variance in the hopes I hit something large.

    I can guess exactly where this is coming from, I do not want to let the cat out the bag as it is a good bonus to have twice a week some times :)

    I have busted out every time and believe me I have had the bonus many times, I have tried and took this at ways you could not imagine and no matter what I try I get no where, Tried betting higher, Than WMS games, You can either try and sweat it out on the normal IM or GOT on 30 - 60p yet if you get a bad run playing 60p can destroy you in a few minutes or go for broke and 90p £1.20 on GOT, 40x wager is pretty big and even if you do get some nice hits on 30p bets than there bound to turn sour and chew it back,

    Just go for it on bigger bets than if you get a few nice hit drop bets again and try a few different machines, Once you get the feel pump up the bets again, After that roller coaster ride than if you still got a healthy balance than it should of eaten some what in to the wager

    I was thinking Low risk stuff I even thought about the medium to high variance Flowers. I turned €100 into €200 at 30c stakes at Royal Panda before. Thank's for your ideas of course DOA crossed my mind but it can be so vile at times I was thinking build it higher on other stuff first so if it's in eating mode I'll have plenty margin for error. :)

    And a lot is down to personal preference as well, there are slots where we feel that they will always run for us and other where we never get a look in. Last week I had a deposit bonus of £50 matched, with a W/R of £2,000 and played solely Thunderstruck and DOA, managed to make the W/R and withdraw £240 but it was a long, long haul, and my patience was pushed to the limit!

    Thanks folks! So mixed opinions on the matter then. I might try 100 spins on DOA at 27p if that hits well it can go into the thousands. Then that way I've only spent £27 and have £73 left to work with elsewhere. The wagering will be easy if I get up to about a monkey(£500) I was looking for some games I haven't tried before oh the site also has playngo too. Forgot to mention that.

    What size bets were you doing? I'm really quite tight with both these 2 unless I have a feeling something is coming up for me. Do you start at 18p-27p and then up it on the back of big wins?

    If it were me, and I'm serious... I'd play Starburst at £1 a spin to begin with.

    [interjection] It won't matter which game you start off with; if things are going bad, your bankroll is going to be swallowed up leaving you no chance of making WR, so bare with me [/interjection]

    If you hit a decent win fairly quickly, you could be sitting just above your starting balance for hours. Starburst might be god-awful on the best of days, but I've went on to it before with £20 and tried to lose, only to be sat there the next day with £50 :lolup:
    I also use it to pump up my Supercharged winnings on Slotty Vegas.
    You'll never win much on it, but you'll rake in the wagering :thumbsup:

    The highest stake I had was 90p on TS, but this was only for a max of 50 spins at a time, and 27p on DAO, but mostly staking between 27p and 45p on TS, if I hit a decent win or decent bonus then on to DOA and play chunks down at 18p or 27p on 100 spin autoplays. Never hit huge wins on DOA, but got enough smaller wins to keep the balance up. The biggest thing was I had plenty of time on my hands, and was determined to have a cash out. The highest I got to was around £330, the lowest was around £70, but most of the time I stayed around the £200 mark.

    Personally I would treat it as a bonus to have some fun and would look at the wagering and think I wont make playthrough so I am not going to plan a strategy to try and make it.

    I would just play my usual games that I like and see what happens. If I managed to get a few features and got the balance up to a level where I thought I have a good chance of cashing out now then I would look to play lower variance games that I dont think would eat into my balance too much.

    Its a nice bonus but no matter what strategy you have if the slots aren't paying then it wont matter what games you try to make playthrough. Enjoy the bonus and hopefully you will get some wins and manage a cashout.

    I think you must run pretty good on Mighty Thunderstruck then! That's incredible! I have only had 2 good runs on it they were on the same day I turned £20 into £200 lost it all another £20 turned into £200 and lost it again! Not a good day but a good session considering it was all won on Thunderstruck at max peak of 45p spins. I think I'll try 50+ spins on a few of your suggestions and see which on is being nice and which ones are being brutal. Good plan?

    Good plan, and best of luck. Hopefully straight in with a bonus round with a few repeats, and then grind out a bit of the W/R on DOA with the possibility of a wild line.

    Just for comparison/research purposes -
    I went on to Starburst with a balance of £50. Played 100 £1 spins so far (auto play), and have a balance of £65.
    It's mind-numbing stuff but definitely helps to chip away at the old WR.

    $100 bonus with x40 is $4,000 (yikes!). I personally would not feel confident at all clearing that wagering requirement especially low rolling (0.40p and under). At 0.40p thats 10,000 spins needed to clear it - even at $1 a bet thats 4,000 spins. Theres a very slim chance of that happening and if you were to clear it for sure you could not stay on the one slot - you will need to have lots of luck on multiple slots.

    Paul7388 has it right - just treat the bonus as some fun and don't worry so much about the wagering. In the beginning the finishing line is going to be so far away may as well enjoy the journey. If u survive to get to the halfway point then it becomes somewhat achievable and you can go for some sort of strategy but I would not think about it so much until you can clear say 50% of the wagering and still quite alot of bonus funds to play with.

    I don't think you can go wrong with whatever approach you choose though. Your either going to need to get lucky fast if high rolling or get alot of game time if low rolling (hitting enough features or wins to keep you at or above your starting balance).

    But since you asked how people would tackle it I'd probably low roll and play games where I have had alot of playtime on low deposits in the past and probably switch if its going nowhere every 100 spins. For me that would be games like 'fat lady sings' (MG), 'karate pig' (MG), 'pacific attack (netent)', 'lucky witch' (MG), 'boom brothers' (netent). Say I was winning I'd try to get at least 1000 spins out of those listed games and if I doubled my balance to $200 or more and feel my luck on those slot is going down (i.e constant dead spins, no feature or big base game hit in 100 spins) I'd up my bet to around 0.60p next and I might even choose some random slot to just go for it. At some point your going to have to pick a slot and go for broke though and I'd probably try a few providers before settling on one that has been lucky for me in the session.

    Now I have hypothetically hit something big and my balance is at $300, I would now stick to 0.60p as my minimum bet and go play immortal romance or 0.36p and dead or alive in the hope I also hit something big. But I don't and now my balance is down to $200. Time to choose some random slot and when my balance is back to $100 (starting bonus). I stop and start from the beginning again (i.e low roll 0.40p and under) and kind of go through the motions again.

    Well this is great only if I am winning and if I am losing no strategy is going to help so I may as well get as much playtime as I can on a bonus. As you can see alot of what I wrote probably does not make so much sense and I doubt I will stick to this strategy 100% because there will always be those times its like 'just another 30 spins' on a failing slot and other times your intuition tells you a big win is around the corner when its not so I'd just use this as a guide for myself knowing that I probably wont follow through.

    I sure as hell wont stay on the one slot though for the whole duration of the bonus and if I ever hit x500 or x1000 on any slot I'd be switching slots straight away. So good luck and just go for playtime first and then if you see the finish line start sprinting!

    if i had that much wagering to do, id go doa at 0.45, bust out or hit a wildline and make the wagering easily after that, that or 1.20-1.50 on something high variance, i dont see the point in playing low bets and wagering like 3k before busting out, i don't have the patience for that :)

    Or you could play games that you enjoy playing :) regardless of provider and variance.
    When i take a bonus i play what i wanna play, and games i enjoy i could never play some dull boring
    LV games just to clear some wagering and for what? perhaps win few bux that one then deposits again to play your fav game.
    why not do it with the bonus :D

    Is Video Poker eligible on this bonus to wager with? If it is, I'd hit deuces wild/deuces and joker. I've met many a wagering requirement playing those on PartyCasino, but of course not many let you wager on VP.

    If my corrections are right and its the bonus I am thinking of than VP counts as 15%
