Casino Bonus Wagering Requirements

The most usual bonus conditions that you need to meet to cash in are known as wagering requirements.

Imagine Casino X offers an initial initial deposit bonus of buy $20 get $30 Free.  The bonus terms and conditions may read something like:
In order to cash-in the $30 bonus, players will need to wager the bonus amount ($30), and the minimum purchase amount ($20) 10 times – a total of (10 X $50) = $500 worth of wagering.
Easier to understand than some rules. You sign up, get your bonus and wager bets totalling more than $500 before you may cash in.

Generally these days casinos place a sliding scale on the percentage that different games contribute to wagering requirements. A rough rule of thumb is that slots contribute 100% whereas classic blackjack only contributes 2%. To put that another way: playing slots contributes 50 times more than classic blackjack. This is for understandable reasons and just highlights how much easier it is to win playing blackjack than, for example, slots.
