you will see the online casinos offer various bonuses to entice you to deposit, u may ask y online casinos are giving away free money. The answer is quite simple – overheads are not as high as at land-based casinos in Vegas and there is a lot more competition online. Bonuses are a great way to get u to deposit at the particular casino and you can play your favourite casino games using more than just your bankroll. Online casinos use wagering requirements and restrictions in order to protect the bonuses they give away. Wagering requirements are also referred to as play through requirements (or playthrough). A wagering requirement will be displayed with a number and an ‘x’. This means the number of times you have to stake or bet your deposit amount, bonus amount or deposit plus bonus amount in order for the bonus to be cashable.

if you take Mr Green Casino for example, the wagering requirement for the welcome bonus is 35x deposit. This means that you need to play the bonus amount (£100) 35 times in order to withdraw the bonus amount. So you will have to wager (or bet) £100 x 35 which is £3,500. In terms of game restrictions, the bonus is only allowed on slot games so stakes/bets made on other games such as blackjack or roulette will not contribute fully to the wagering requirements.
