    I was just checking out Spin & Win with a view to promoting them.
    The website is VERY nice - clear & easy to navigate.

    But when I checked the Welcome Bonus terms I nearly fell of my chair!
    It is a 100% match bonus, but the wagering is (Deposit+Bonus)x35.. AND it's PHANTOM! :eek:

    When you consider that only SLOTS count at 100% - that is bordering on criminal IMHO.

    Players would be mad to take this bonus when they can sign-up at any number of other sites offering the same games and only have to wager Bonus ONLY x30 (or less) and the the bonus is Cashable!

    Anybody getting any conversions here?

    I'd spotted this one myself when compiling a review for the launch of my new site - the reviewer i sent to Spin and Win declined taking a bonus they felt this one was so weak and when they were there (unless i made a mistake typing up the review) the wagering was only 25x(d+b).

    It's certainly a very weak point in an otherwise positive review.

    Honestly i don't think bonuses should be the be all and end all for a customer choosing a venue - there are far more important factors to be considered. However it should still be considered a factor and honestly i can't blame anyone for not wanting to engage with a 35x(d+b) sticky bonus. It's pretty much a suicide pact for your deposit.

    It don't think bonuses should be the most important thing either - but when EVERY casino tries to tell players they are "the best thing since sliced bread", how are the players to know what they are REALLY like until they try them?

    With everything else being roughly equal, a generous bonus might just be what swing the players toward one casino over another.
    That's why I personally would rather see casinos offer small bonuses with easy WR, rather than huge bonuses with very steep WR - the latter mainly only attracts the advantage players IMO - which are NOT the sort of players I want.

    Good point KasinoKing - as a player, I prefer £50 bonuses with low wagering (20x deposit is usually fine with me).

    Totally agree with that KK. There has to be a balance. I really like Doxx Bet's wager £300 on any games and get £10 promotion. Small, simple and easy to finish. The average player doesn't have the free funds to take full advantage of a 400% up to £2000 sticky bonus with a 25x(d+b) wagering requirement. Those that do normally ain't real players.
