    Ok I won a competition at midaur 2nd place £250 woohoo I thought, but it turns out to get this you have wager real money to covert that £250 into real money. You need 8750 points which is in effect £8750 as I understand it, but the wagering doesn’t work like on the sites, it’s one point for every £1 wagered, so if I won £50 off 1 spin that wouldn’t be 50 points it would just 1! I think this is so far weighted against me it’s a waste of time, even if you just started off with £250 prize you had won to wager with that would be something but you don’t, anyone else have an opinion?

    that seems ridiculous . You had to use real money in the first place to come 2nd in the competition ?

    you'll probs have to stick the t&c of the comp into this thread .

    if you can find the t&c of that particular competition it will be of help . It really does pay to read them when it comes to online casinos and slots . IF it was stipulated in there that you had to then wager 35 x your 'prize' with real money deposited funds before getting the 'prize' - then whilst its an absolute steaming pile of **** competition - they will continue to beat you over the head with the ' it was stated in the terms and conditions'.

    not saying it is fair or right - or even this is what is happening - but it wouldn't surprise me .

    That's a pretty common situation at many casinos. Some will give cash to first and bonuses to the rest. Some just bonuses for everyone. A few are still pure cash with no restriction or 1x wagering. You need to check the terms first.

    That also is how wagering requirements usually work at most casinos, it's based off money wagered, not money won (even if the competition itself is based on money won).

    Your $250 prize is really only worth like $100 - and you'll most likely lose meeting the wagering requirement. It's just a big gamble chip as a prize. Unfortunately these days, as I said above, you always need to check the terms if you don't want to be in for a surprise. I know that's not fun, but that's the way it is.

    Atleast you'll get free play time and if you're lucky you might convert it to real money. That's how I see no deposit bonuses.

    But yeah, the fact you have wagered real money to come 2nd in the competition stings. I hope you meet the wagering and get out more than you put in, or atleast break even :thumbsup:

    i think you misunderstood . the OP is saying they don't get their 'prize' to even wager . they have to wager even more real cash first . donkey-stick-stick-stick-stick-stick- picture of potential carrot - bit more stick .

    If what you said is true, I misunderstood as well, and that's quite an awful prize. I don't think I've ever seen it done that way.

    I have a different issue with Midaur, but as you've tagged them l will add it here ...

    I'm getting an email almost every day off them even though I've excluded my account, and unsubscribed (and it tells me I have when I continue to try and unsubscribe).

    I've marked the email as spam now and reported them to the relevant authorities.

    Oh wow, you're right... Afterwager bonuses shouldn't be given as a price in a tournament, that's vile.

    Yeah I was quite disappointed to find my £250 prize was locked until I wagered £8750, I got to 2000 points the other day but won £240 off bonanza so reasoned it wasn’t worth chasing the wagering and cashed out taking a week timeout. I still will have 5 days tho to make the cash out lol
