    We also have terms that are vague, and are in effect a proxy for "spirit of the bonus" even though such words are not used.

    The favourite at the moment seems to be the idea of "substantially reducing stake without a substantial reduction of the bankroll", whilst disregarding the fact that the wide differences in variance of games often means that this would be a perfectly sensible action when moving to a high variance slot having played something of much lower variance. The max bet settings make it pretty obvious that variance is a strong factor in deciding the default settings of some slots.

    I can spin £75 on Munchkins, yet the same casino will limit The Dark Knight Rises to a mere £7.50, and Immortal Romance to an even lower £6. If I am "on tilt", and had won off Munchkins doing £75 per spin (assuming it to be within any explicit max bet limitation), I would naturally lower my bet to £6 if I moved to Immortal Romance because that has been determined to be the "equivalent of £75" in terms of risk management of large but improbable payouts.

    Would a casino afraid of risk REALLY want me to be able to carry on betting £75 on slots like Immortal Romance because I felt I "had to" because of some vague term that might get my winnings confiscated. It would expose them to something that might even be worse, me hitting a 5 wild "desire" @ £75 that they couldn't pay easily, and it doing far more PR damage than telling me I am "bonus banned".

    Avoiding this seems so simple, yet so impossible for the big software designers. As well as "bullet proof rules" for bonuses, surely they can make "Kevlar software" that will refuse wagers deemed to be outside the scope of whatever they desire, even "spirit of the bonus", so they may end up refusing wagers, but unlike reneging on a bet once accepted, this isn't likely to get a casino into trouble, at worst a "bitch & moan" from a player who found the max bet on the game "too low" for them to try some strategy they had seen on a "bonus whoring" site, or the min bet "too high" to grind out the remaining WR on auto play whilst they went away for the weekend.

    Actually, I'm in the process of removing another group from the Accred section.
