happy weekend everyone i was mulling over a recent offer from an online casino which offered a 100% deposit match with a non withdrawable bonus and a 30x playthrough,ive always liked taking deposit match bonuses as i liked the extra bankroll and actually liked the challenge of makeing the turnover requirements,however as a reside in the uk those offers are now few and far between and ive had a few of these cant cash out the bonus offers before but never taken them as i find that aspect a tad off putting,what do you guys think is it worth the punt?

100$ + 100$ bonus with 30x wager bonus ammount

Let’s say you play 95% rtp slots, you will need to wager 3000$ And it will cost you 150$ on average. 50$ left - non withdrawable 100$ = -50$ value

- 120$ value on 94% slots

Very bad deal like most bonuses

The only 2 casinos still offering 150% and 100% deposit bonuses with 15x wagering is liveroulette and casinowinner.

Just play with cash on lower stakes and give action to casinos offering honest cashback deals or prizes with zero or very low wager.

A non-withdrawable (or Phantom) bonus will always be inferior to a cashable one.
I have hated them for as long as I can remember - especially those which also have very high WR.
The maths is heavily stacked against you, as hhhello said.

Having said that, if the % is very high and/or the WR is very low (x30 is low these days) and you just want the extra play-time and are expecting to lose it all anyway - then why not have a go?
More play time does give you more chances of hitting "a biggie".

I dunno but be sure to read the rules when you take a bonus some casinos have screwed me over in the past, basically banning all the good games (When bonus money is active), max bet of 2 euro, cant play live games etc etc. and if you break these terms they can take all your winnings. This is why I actually dont like taking bonuses at all..

Grosvenor offer me regular 100% x30 bonuses up to £500, cant see any down side of not taking them with the UK requirement
that real cash balances can be withdrawn at any time albeit it that any bonus cash or bonus wagering is cancelled.There are
a lot of restricted games that cannot be played with bonuses but the bonus balance will not show up those games.
I just take the offers and play as normal, if i make a half decent profit , i withdraw.If i lose the deposit i have more playtime
using the bonus.
I realise its not so easy with most casinos who will jump on any excuse not to pay
