Evening all does anyone know the rules for royal pandas free spins , because i'm stuck after reading these terms i'm baffled to how this is fair , so they've a promo running at the moment where you get free spins on the new kong slot , which is what i have making deposits for , got my twenty royal spins today at lunch time played them hit a couple of hundred, carry on playing for a while then popped out.

Thought i would check my wagering 0% although clearly i had done maybe 1500 in wagering , live chat informed me that i needed to make a deposit for this to start working , popped over did this , played another 1k , 0.53% of wagering made , again carried on again wagering wasn't moving.

Back to live chat who has now informed me that only real cash bets are part of wagering & now bonus from free spins does not count at all , i checked out the free spins & it clearly states free spins carry 35x wagering but does not state this shall becoming from cash only , its a no win situation for the casino unless i make a big deposit & hope i clear over 7k in wagering .

any help would be good unless im being rather thick here ??

They've always had those rules. If the bonus is really huge then it's not always any idea to make deposit after deposit to try and clear it.
In that place I want to win a small bonus, make that bigger, and then try and clear it with a deposit. It's almost stupid doing it the other way around.

Since you have started now then maybe it's worth continuing to wager so you don't lose it all. Up to you though. Sorry you got caught in this. It is a bit different than other places.

You are right! Wagering can only be done with real money and does not register any wagering with bonus money.

yer 7k in wagering but to be honest i think this should not be allowed at all , i wasnt aware of this but balance at £1100 with only 0.53 of wagering & already spent half a day thinking this would be at £3k by now its great.

Also so really what is the point in making deposit for the free spins ????

It's a tough choice to make though since you need to keep wagering with your own money. You can always try and make those £1100 bigger first so it feels like it's worth the money :)

It's an absolute joke rule and as about as win-win as it gets for the casino. Shouldn't be offering any 'free spins' or bonuses under that guise.

Its sadly the one rule which stops me playing at this casino at all.

Yes you can win £1 from some FS, get it up to £500 say and clear WR with a tenner but rare this will happen and usually a (big) hindrance. Read numerous times on here of player 'x' having to make deposit after deposit and when finally WR is cleared they are no better off.

I'd deposit quite a few £'s there if it wasn't for this rule as Ive read great things about them but I just know I'd hit big on some royal spins and have to deposit half of my hooker budget just to attempt to clear wagering.

to be fair i don't play often at Panda , but ive never had any problems until today so i'm pretty forced to see if i get balance over £5000 & my favorite slot is dead immortal romance , so i now need another slot to hit with a good chance of over 1000x upwards maybe it time to hit that bonanza or Dhv as its play money now)

Are you restricted to how high the bets can be? If you're wagering with your money, there shouldnt be, right?

No, when he play with his own money he can do whatever he wants, even cash out if he wins a lot. He just lose the bonus.

Melwin will show up next week. He is one of the good rep's who always takes care of us...or at least replying. No need to hunt him :)

well it kinda restricted to max of £5 quid per bet , but i just cant get my head round that you make these deposits to claim a promo then get stung , i find this totally unfair, that term really needs looking into because its a win win for the casino , i cannot recall any other casino adopting this kind of thing in all my years playing , its a first for me.

Royal Panda is a great casino but i don't think they should be allowed to have bonus caught up like this where only cash counts for wagering. Either have it split or have it so bonus can be wagered. I am surprised they still have it this way since all the new strict laws came from UKGC etc. ?

They are only restricting your bonus money so its well within the rules

I dont agree at all as it makes players who are unsure or who are maybe unknown to how gambling works etc make deposits to try achieve the bonus like in OP case.

Why else has so many casino made decision to split up cash and bonus. But we will see i mean nothing bad towards Panda as they are a great casino, but feel they should change to the standard.

I might be in the minority but I don't mind their bonus. I only really re-deposit when my wagering required = the bonus that will be unlocked. So i just play with the bonus until it's high enough. My best was a 1 quid bonus, 90p wild desire in next spins - 1200 bonus funds, 35 quid wagering to unlock. But mainly the bonus is bust. Worst thing is to win a lot from the free spins :rolleyes:

But yeah, they probably should have 'only cash wagered' in flashing Neon signs. Bellfruits the same.

If you think RP's is bad, check out/don't get caught out by Midaur.

Operates with the same policy basically but the only, very minor, difference is that their bonus winnings are capped from the bonus. 100 bonus = 3500 wagering but capped at something like 200. now, that's scurrilous ;)
