Wagering requirements / Play-through requirements

If you take any casino bonus at any casino you are likely to come across the term “Wagering requirements” or “Play-through requirements”. These are perfectly normal and are there to protect the casino from people simply opening an account, depositing and immediately withdrawing their deposit plus the casino bonus.

What is not perfectly normal is the level of the wagering requirement or some of the terms that casinos include in their terms and conditions. This is why we have a blacklist and why we recommend you read all the small-print, even when signing up via one of our recommended safe casinos.

Rules which are ok to include in bonus terms but that you need to watch out for are things like the wagering only counting from slot machines and not poker, bingo, keno, etc. Other ok terms but ones you need to be aware of is the classic maximum bet size during the wagering requirements. Often you are allowed to bet a maximum value (often this is set to €/$ 6.25) or there is a maximum percentage of the initial deposit (for example you are not allowed to stake higher than 10% of your initial deposit on any one single spin of a slot).
