    Hi guys!

    So I am a complete newbie to the world of online gambling (and gambling in general!). I have registered here and on a couple of other gambling forums to learn as much as I can about the best casinos, games and possibly strategies to use!
    So far I've picked a couple of online casinos to play on (free mode so far) and I am reading the terms and conditions before I register and make my first deposits.
    All casinos have this wagering requirement, e.g. 25x the amount of the bonus + initial deposit
    So my question is, does this mean:
    (25x the amount of the bonus) + initial deposit
    OR
    25x (the amount of the bonus + initial deposit)?

    Thanks!

    Hello Casperito and welcome. May I ask where you from?

    To your question:
    This means, if you deposit 50 and you get 50 to your deposit, you have 100 balance to play with.
    You would need to wager 100 x 25 = 2500

    This case is as Marina said. There are some casinos where the wagring is just the Bonus and not the initial deposit. Here are so many casinos and if you like to have some good ones just ask and we help you.

    Hi, SuperNova! Maybe you could suggest some reputable online casinos where the wagering is not too high?
    I am about to start playing with real money and these big numbers scare me a bit :confused:

    @Casperito, where are you from? There are casinos which offer diffrent bonuses and wager requirement depending on where players live.

    Also, I am curious why you registred on our website with a Russian IP and now you use an IP from Netherlands.

    I am American, currently living in Russia, hence the Russian IP.
    I sometimes use Netherlands IP to access gambling forums as most of them are blocked if using a Russian IP :(
    When I register in online casinos I put Russia as country of residence of course

    Yes true, unfortunatly there are coming to many spammers with russian IP.

    If you currently live in Russia, you must read the terms and conditions as well the bonus terms from online casinos carefully.
    Some do have special wager requirements for players from russia and some do not even allow russian players.

    Yes! A couple of days ago I made a deposit with Rizk Casino which promised a 100% welcome bonus. It had some bonus T&Cs written right under the deposit form, which specifically mentioned that "players from the UK and IRELAND are not eligible for the bonus". So I thought ok, this doesnt apply to me and went on. Only then did I find out that there's a whole big list of bonus excluded countries in the full T&Cs, including Russia.. :(
    Not a great first experience but completely my fault.

    What a pitty that you could not get the welcome bonus at Rizk Casino.
    They are really great, playing there myself. I love their Wheel of Rizk, you can get free spins, super spins, mega spins and even cash.
    The Rizk power bar fills up if you play any of their games.

    Can you also not get their rewards from the wheel of rizk?

    I started playing with my deposit there, even without bonus and it has been very good so far! I think I like it best out of the ones I tried up to date.
    Wheel of rizk and other promos are available, they do send me the free spin offers and I've won stuff twice on the Wheel itself. Very nice! Im not upset anymore hehe
