Last night I joined a newly UKGC licensed casino. Stackers
The SUB is 100% up to £200, 35x wagering on the bonus.
EXCEPT it's 35x wagering on the whole bonus balance, NOT just the initial bonus.
This I didn't realise until I'd deposited £100 and started playing with £100 cash and £100 bonus

Initially, I started winning a little, but my winnings were being split between bonus and cash. So at one point I had £122 cash and £122. Very strange, but i assumed then, that it worked like Casumo's bonuses.
But all the stakes were coming from my cash balance.
Once my cash balance had dropped below the initial £100 any wins were just added to cash yet my bonus stuck at £122. So i checked the wagering, only to find that the initial wagering had changed from £3500 to £4,270.

Anyway I eventually lost and zeroed out. But during play I got awarded some random bonus of £14.92. which appeared in my balance after the SUB was lost. So I began playing this on Bonanza, and to my surprise I got my balance up to £200. So checked the wagering. this had now changed from £522.20 to around £7,000. Plus I noticed the the max conversion was £44.96 (3x the initial bonus amount). Apparently any NDB's are limited to 3x conversion. I'm not sure how this can be considered a NDB, when it was won during play from a deposit.

Anyway, I carried on playing and eventually got my balance up to £646.84, but the wagering had shot up to £22,639.43 and even though my wagering contribution was at £1246.60. which is more than twice the original wagering, the bonus wouldn't convert to cash.

The only way I could get it to convert, was to either fulfil the 22k wagering. or lose enough that the wagering became less than the current contribution. It wasn't worth trying to complete 22k wagering all for the sake of £44.26. So i set about trying to lose £600+. This took about 3 hours. most of it was done on Bonanza @ £4, and as I got close to my target @ £2. Eventually I lost enough for the bonus to convert, and I did one last spin which won £20. So I managed to cash out £60.

How can it be legit to base wagering on your bonus balance, rather than the original bonus amount?

There is absolutely no point in getting any decent wins from a bonus. Because the wagering just goes up and up

I’ve experienced the same. Got my balance up to nearly 2k .... won 100 as the convention was 1x at the time I signed up .

The wagering reqs have a dynamic character I was told by live chat :)

Never again would I take a bonus like this ! Waste of time . I would rather play in fun mode .

Apart from the bonuses my experience was very good there .

Warned about the bonuses last week: Stakers.com???!

They gave me £50 free and although wagering started at £2500, it soon went up to £7k but every spin dropped £30 off wagering when I was doing £1 a spin.

Crap bonus scheme for sure, but they pay within an hour (even at 2am!)

I got 150 free , no wagering and still unsubscribed from their bonuses .

I have the same issue, won 30k with deposit bonus, then they automatically added a pelican bonus without notify me or me accepting it. This changed the bonus terms as they will combine the bonuses and added a max payout of 3x which is 88 Euro's. Next to that the wagering requirement has gone up to 37,000x the original bonus amouth. So I wont be able to get my winnings anymore as it is crapped to 88 Euro's and to receive the 88 Euro's I need to wager 37,000x the bonus... These guys are a big scam and action needs to be taken towards them.
