Whilst traditional bingo bonuses have taken a bit of a hammering over the last few years, slot spins have become more popular as a reward. This coincides with the rise in popularity of slots. You can’t visit any bingo brand these days without slots taking a prominent role. We also now see promotions aimed at wagering on slots – in fact more than those for bingo players.
So what are all these slot and spin offers about? There’s a mix of slot offers but despite The UKGC’s desire for clarity they can be confusing. For example a site may offer you free spins for making a deposit. Yet wins from those spins are paid as a bonus and that bonus has a wagering term. In essence they’re not free. However a site offering wager free spins would pay out in cash. But are those spins free if you’ve had to deposit first?
Slot Bonus Wagering Terms
Essentially what you end up with are no deposit bonus spins, no deposit free spins, bonus spins and wager free spins. The problem is that each operator or platform uses their own terminology. We’ve tried to decipher things so that any offers are explained but – and you should do this anyway – make sure you familiarise yourself with the terms before taking up any bonus offer.
This is especially important for slot bonuses becauses they often come with hefty wagering terms. Bingo wagering terms tend to be around x4 whereas you can get slot terms at x20, x40 or even higher. Wager free sites like Jackpotjoy, Bingo Idol and Bingo Besties may be better options if you’re wary of wagering terms but wish to play slots. However, be aware that some slot offers, especially those on Real Money Network sites have win caps. This means that although you may have been rewarded with 30 free spins the amount you can win is limited to say £1.
