In addition, each bonus offer may also have supplementary terms and conditions that will be provided when you are invited to participate in the offer.
29.1.1. Bonuses. The Details
All bonuses are based on the following rules.
The bonus amount will be placed into your Bonus Balance and will be kept separate from your Cash Balance. When you place a bet, the bet will be deducted from your Cash Balance. If there are no funds remaining in your Cash Balance, then bets will be deducted from your Bonus Balance.
Any winnings that you receive will be credited to your Bonus Balance and cannot be withdrawn until you have met the Wagering Requirements for that bonus. The bonus amount itself may also not be withdrawn until you have met the Wagering Requirements. In some cases, the bonus is Non-Redeemable, and in this case the bonus amount can never be withdrawn.
When you have met the Wagering Requirements, the sum on your Bonus Balance that is linked to the active bonus will be transferred to your Cash Balance and may then be withdrawn at any time. Not all bets will count towards wagering requirements, for example low risk roulette bets. See below for more details. Please ensure you have read all other terms below that relate to bonuses. Only one Bonus can be awarded for any specific event unless we state otherwise, and only one Bonus can be active on your Account at any time.
29.1.2. Your Cash Balance And Your Bonus Balance
A Bonus is considered as a 'free bet' and it does not have an equivalent cash value. No cash alternative, substitution, transfer or assignment of any Bonus will be allowed at any time other than as set out in these terms. When you are awarded a Bonus it will be added to the "Bonus Balance" in Your Account. You cannot withdraw any sums from your Bonus Balance. When you deposit your own cash this will be added to your Account's "Cash Balance". You may withdraw any sums from your account's Cash Balance, but you will forfeit any sums remaining on your Bonus Balance if you do so. Important notice: by creating a payout request you automatically forfeit any sums on Bonus Balance. Even if payout request is cancelled by our finance department due to this or that reason (e.g., fraud check etc.), Bonus money will not be added back to your Bonus Balance.
29.1.3. Betting & Making Withdrawals When You Have A Bonus
The cash that you Deposit will be used to place bets on the Service(s). Only if there are no funds remaining on Your Cash Balance will your bets be funded from Your Bonus Balance automatically. Any winnings you receive when You have a Bonus active on Your Account will be added to your Bonus Balance and may only be withdrawn once the Wagering Requirements have been met. Please note that when you choose to receive Bonuses from us and generate winnings from such Bonuses, in excess of Five Thousand Dollars and you subsequently request a withdrawal, we reserve the right to restrict such withdrawal to be a maximum of Five Thousand Dollars in any 7-day period. The remaining amount will be placed back into on Your Player account. All Withdrawals depend on fulfilling all conditions specified above and the verification of all ID documents requested. When you have met the Wagering Requirements for the active bonus, the Bonus Balance associated with the active Bonus (being any accrued winnings or any remaining bonus amount) will be transferred to your Cash Balance and may be withdrawn.
PLEASE NOTE: if you withdraw funds from your Cash Balance before you have met the Wagering Requirements you will forfeit all Bonuses and all accrued winnings.
Please also note that if your bonus balance hits "zero" (0) at any point, then Bonuses are considered redeemed and are no longer subject to Wagering requirements.
29.1.4. Types Of Bonuses
The terms of the specific Bonus will indicate whether that Bonus is Withdrawable or Non-Redeemable. Withdrawable Bonuses are those where the Bonus amount together with any accrued winnings will be transferred into Your Cash Balance once the Wagering Requirements have been met. Non-Redeemable Bonuses are those where the original Bonus amount will never be transferred to Your Cash Balance (but any accrued winnings will be transferred once the Wagering Requirements have been met).
29.1.5. Wagering Requirements
The Wagering Requirements of a Bonus means the total amount of bets you must stake before the Bonus and any accrued winnings are transferred to your Cash Balance and can be withdrawn. The Wagering Requirements for each Bonus are set out in the specific terms for the Bonus and will be expressed as a multiple of the Bonus amount, or of the Bonus plus the Deposit amount. The Wagering Requirement for Bonuses will be set out in the terms specific to that Bonus. Not all bets will count towards the Wagering Requirements. Bets on Blackjack, Arcade games (Heads or Better, Dice Twister, etc.) Video poker games (Jacks or Better, Aces and Faces, etc.), Baccarat, 2 Ways Royal, Craps and Sic Bo games contribute 5% of actual wagering on these games towards your Wagering Requirements. Most of Slot games contribute 100%, Roulettes contribute 0%. These percentages can be changed from time to time so please make sure to contact our support team each time to find out a certain game’s wagering contribution. The percentage of bets that contribute towards wagering requirements may differ for other bonus offers, but this will be made clear within the terms for those specific offers. Please read the wagering requirements carefully for each bonus offer you may receive.
29.1.6. Multiple Bonuses On A Single Account
Bonuses are handled one after another. When the earliest Bonus is 'Fulfilled' or 'Revoked' (see the Clause below for the meaning of these terms), the next Bonus in line will become 'Active'. There are four different stages related to a Bonus, and these are as follows:
Active – A Bonus that you have started to play through, but in respect of which you have not yet completed the Wagering Requirements. While you have an active Bonus on your Account, you cannot withdraw any bonus amount and/or any winnings.
Pending – A second or subsequent Bonus on your Account which you have not yet started to play through. A Pending Bonus cannot be withdrawn.
Fulfilled – A Bonus where the Wagering Requirements have been met. The bonus amount and any winnings accrued will be automatically transferred into your Cash Balance and can be withdrawn.
Revoked – An Active or Pending Bonus can be revoked and removed from Your Bonus balance if either: (a) you have not met the Wagering Requirements within the defined period; or, (b) you decide to withdraw any cash amount from your Account before the Wagering Requirements have been met; or (c) you are in breach of this Agreement or the promotion terms and conditions.
When a Bonus is revoked then your bonus balance will be set to 0 and there will be no future liability on your part in respect of the revoked Bonus.
29.1.7. Promotion Abuse
Our casino reserves the right to review transaction records and logs from time to time, for any reason whatsoever. If, upon such a review, it appears that player is participating in strategies that our casino in its sole discretion deems to be abusive, we reserve the right to revoke the entitlement of such a player to the promotion. Should the administration become aware of any user who has accepted the bonus or a promotion with sole purpose of creating a positive expected value on bonus return by using known practices aimed at securing a cash out of said bonus, then we will enforce the below mentioned actions and will enforce immediate exclusion of such user from this and future promotions. For the sake of absolute clarity, we have individually identified named practices that we find abusive in relation to awarded bonuses:
