had a notification from casino rewards thats bonus playthrough is going up from 30x to 200x, that is one hell of an increase making bonus really irrelevant.which means if i take a 25% bonus on 200 i would have a playthrough of 10000.how long before other casinos follow suit i wonder.

Christ, that’s a bit high. Could be one of a few things. It might be that your playthrough is going up to that level or they just don’t want people take bonuses lol.

The worst bonus I have seen is x5 max withdrawal with 50x wagering.

Bring back Jackpot Party and the x10 wagering!!

Do Sky Vegas still have x1 WR?

The rep has asked me to post the following on the casino's behalf:
You may withdraw your cash balance at any time by forfeiting your bonus. While your account has a positive Bonus Balance, bets are placed from both Cash and Bonus at the same time. Winnings from the portion of bets placed from your Cash Balance will be credited to the Cash Balance. Winnings from the portion of bets placed from your Bonus Balance will be credited to the Bonus Balance. The % of how much is taken from or credited to cash and bonus is calculated by the Cash/Bonus Balance ratio at the time the bet is placed. For example, if your Bonus Balance is 25% of your total balance, then 75% of your bet will be cash and 25% will be bonus. And as a result, 75% of any winnings will be cash and 25% of any winnings will be bonus.

100% of the bonuses will be converted to cash by wagering them 200x.

Using a real money example:

Total balance is $100 comprised of $25 bonus and $75 cash.

Player makes a bet of $10 ($2.50 from bonus balance and $7.50 from cash balance) and wins $1000.

$250 of the win is allocated to the bonus balance. $750 of the win is allocated to the cash balance.

New balance is $1090 comprised of $272.50 bonus and $817.50 cash.

Player can withdraw the $817.50 cash portion by forfeiting the $272.50 bonus balance.

Sounds to me it's exactly what Casumo is doing with their free spins and bonuses. Portion of cash and bonus is used together when placing bets and you can withdraw and cancel at anytime the bonus balance.

Fansbet are doing £10 deposit with £160 to play with - playthrough is x95. So only £15k wagering. Oh max bet is £1 also. I wonder statistically how many people cash that out.

:laugh:I may have a go myself.

My budgerigar had just passed away and having not received my Universal Credit I was on my uppers. I had just come back from the food bank with 2 tins of baked beans and nothing to heat them with as the utilities had been cut off, after peeling the eviction notice from my front door. All alone I sat there and tuned on my phone which was on the last bar of battery. I checked my inbox and noticed I had a 50% bonus at XXX casino waiting for me. I invested my last £10 and proceeded to play Mega Moolah at 50p spins. With £1.42 left in my balance, the screen changed and a big wheel appeared. I gasped as it landed on the white segment and @Mega Jackpot you won £11,874,256.76 appeared. I sat there in total shock, not even feeling the broken spring on my settee sticking up my ass. I carefully jumped up to ensure the spring exited as painlessly as possible then jumped around the tiny dark room, screaming.

Within 5 minutes the Police and ambulance services were attending having been called by the only neighbour I have who's not high on crack or pissed. They left me, satisfied I was somewhat short of the requirement for compulsory sectioning. I now live in a mortgage-free Georgian mansion with a new Range Rover on the drive, even though I haven't got a license. Thanks so much C***** R******, your bonus changed my life forever as without it I would have bust before that magical spin!

Also these proportional bonus/cash bonuses will presumably have max bet limitations from the off.

Wondering how that coincides with the UKGC rules on playing with your deposited cash freely and unencumbered. I think its a grey area and there will be fines eventually

Jackpot City and sister casinos (Digimedia?) Have had that set up for as long as I can remember. - Always with as best I recall 50xB WR and a mirror image of the CR set up.

30x to 200x, there is simply no player friendly excuse in the universe :rolleyes:

You forgot the bit where you had only just signed up that afternoon and “won big on starburst” before switching to Mega Moolah :laugh:

Forgive me for sharing this somewhat mis fitting story here but certain posts in this thread made me think of something which still makes me laugh to this day, happened nearly 30 years ago!

About 20 of us use to hang around in our local arcade, it was more of a youth club really.

One day one of the lads turned up who the previous night had said he would not be in due to being skint.

"What you doing here?" I asked, "I thought you were broke!"

"Giro come early" he replied with a huge smile on his face

Guess you had to be there :p :oops:

That response really fits a recreational player's play habits.

However the 200x bonus gives me ideas...

Stay tuned, soon an exciting update!

They might as well go the whole hog, max bet 10p max cashout £1 of course max deposit £500.

They are probably banking on slipping it into the terms and people who think it's x35 will get a nasty surprise after depositing.
