NEKTAN Free Spins - Just Don't Bother

Most players are probably aware that Nektan sites cap all winnings from their bonuses at 4x the bonus received.

But they also cap free spins winnings at 4x the amount won.

I got some ND free spins today, and won a massive £1.10.
So just to get rid of it I attempted to play it off with DOA, and got a nice bonus round, although luckily, not too nice.

here's a screenshot of just before I took the last spin to clear the wagering with a balance of £184.22

and after that last spin........ balance £4.40

I know a lot of casinos have a cap on free spin winnings. but it's usually £100-£200

4x the amount initially won is ridiculous

p.s. They also do it with free spins from a deposit, not just no-deposit free spin

Not strictly true here - they cap CONVERSION at 4x deposit - if you proceed to win after WR is complete and capped, then no restrictions. :thumbsup:

It's 4x Bonus, not 4x Deposit.
which on a 50% bonus works out at 2x Deposit

Actually some of their white label sites are only 2x bonus
So a 50% bonus works out at 1x Deposit

Whichever, it is not a cash-out limit but a conversion limit. It works more like a 'second chance' than a traditional bonus. Progress Play do it as well I believe.

Just had a look at nektan and found chomp. Assuming they all the same, it sais indeed conversions is 4x the bonus. And unless specifically stated, a 30x wr on the bonus winnings.
It does make it a bit of a pain, i suppose if you somehow win a tenner off no deposit spins, you would have to wager 300 quid. And then the max it could convert to is 4x the bonus. So 40quid in this example if you ran hot enough to wager that amount.

It also states, at least on chomp... that any withdrawal resulting from no deposit bonuses hold a max withdrawal of £200. Which would be the rules in place for brianmon here as he said he got ND free spins... so for him, i guess.. he has to wager 33quid to convert the £1.10 free spins ("any free spins winnings will be in bonus") winnings into to £4.40 cash, where he can play on towards a WD but with a 4.40 start balance, and that WD - due to being a ND bonus- is now capped at 200... which it wouldnt be capped at if it were a deposit bonus

Still something for nothing, but a mission nonetheless.

That is very poor.

Compare that to one of the best promotions I have ever seen the other day. It was at Mr Smith casino where in return for a £250 deposit you got 100 free spins on Bonanza. And the best bit, they were wager free, no cap on the winnings AND at £1 a spin!!!
