    Bonus#1- 200% match ($100 max bonus). Wager $2500 (slots). After wagering is done, you can only cashout if you have a balance of more than depost+bonus(would be $150).

    Bonus#2- 100% mach ($125 max bonus). Wager 25x bonus($3125 slots). No balance requirements to cashout after wagering done.


    Which is the better bonus?

    I prefer Bonus #1 Paul, because of the lesser amount required for deposit(only $50) to start out playing with $150 and also the lesser wagering requirement...I personally would never cash out less that $150 anyway...

    The first bonus gives less risk for your own money. However after 2500$ on slots play, you most likely won't be able to withdraw. But you can of course try to increase your balance back to 150$ on Roulette for example, and then you will be able to withdraw deposit + bonus.

    UPDATE: I calculated that you are expected to lose 100$ on the first bonus and 125$ on the second. So neither bonus does give you an edge.

    I agree with RobWin - number 1 because you are risking less of your own money.

    You are being to simplistic.
    Of course you can work out the theoretical EV based on 5% edge, the same as you would with say 0.5% blackjack.
    But the variance of slots is massive compared to cards or even roulette & the chances of getting even remotely close to 5% during this WR are pretty much zilch.
    The probability is your return will be much less than 95% and you will bust out. But you only need one or two decent hits and it will be a totally different story...
    I know; I've been there, done that - many times!
    :cool:

    It is true that even though the EV is that you will get even, it is more likely that you will experience either busting or a nice win.

    For this 200% bonus that was presented in the first post, the best solution would be to bet the whole bankroll on Roulette and hope to double up your balance, then with starting balance of 300$ play the required WR through on slots. This gives you the highest chance of winning. However if playing Roulette with bonus money is forbidden, you could also bet the whole bankroll on single spin on slots, and if you win, then play through the WR with small bets.

    Obviously I would choose the one at thisisvegas. Kidding but reading the post and from a manager's point of view I am curious to know what the people really want. I know the answer is free money with no wagering restrictions but let's barter.

    You cant satisfy everybody. I was wondering whether it is technically possible to have the free spins counted as part of wagering requirements. This would make it very interesting for everybody who play slots. This would also make the 50x(deposit+bonus) wagering requirements more doable. I did it though:D:D:D

    I would choose the first, as it offers more "free" money. This gives more opportunity to hit big on the slots before busting out. Without a big hit, it is unlikely that you will get anywhere near 95%, and the most likely outcome is meeting WR by "grinding" the second bonus with a loss, if not completely busting out.
    The first bonus will also give a longer playing time for the same bet size, and if you DO hit big, the total WR would also be lower.

    As for doubling up on Roulette first, unlikely, as I doubt Roulette would be an allowed game, and if it is, the terms need to be updated to prevent this causing a mess of complaints once "advantage" players see this.
