Low Wagering Bonuses

Home » Low Wagering Bonuses

Those were the good times! In years gone by it was rather the norm to be offered a casino bonus with a low wagering requirement of maybe 5x or 10x the bonus amount. Little regulation, no taxes for casinos to pay on bonuses and admittedly small numbers of bonus abuse marked the beginnings of online gaming. Hard to believe that we are talking about a time less than two decades ago. The low wagering bonuses all but disappeared since then but not completely. To the contrary, casino operators seem do have rediscovered them as we have seen recently an increase in the number of such deals being offered to new and existing players. We scour the world wide web on a daily basis to find the best deals and any low wagering bonuses will be added to this page.


So what exactly is a low wagering bonus? In general, any bonus added to your balance via a casino offer, be it a deposit match or winnings from bonus spins, needs to be wagered a number of times on casino games before it is converted to cash and can be withdrawn. Over the years, players have become accustomed to wagering requirements (WR) in the range of 40-50x bonus or 20-25x deposit + bonus. On top, many casino operators reduced the contribution rate of some games, which makes it even harder to complete the WR. As a result, anything found below that today is already considered to be a rather good offer.

That is where low wagering bonuses come in as they have considerably lower wagering requirements, generally not higher than 20x bonus. Casino operators have rediscovered this type of bonus as it looks and sounds much more attractive to players, especially as a sign-up offer. The downside is that such bonuses are often on the leaner side and won’t boost your playing balance by as much as standard bonuses. However, having to recycle a bonus amount only 10 times on eligible casino games is most definitely easier than doing it 50 times.

One such example is the welcome offer for UK players at bwin. A small deposit of £10 will be sweetened with 100 bonus spins on the iconic Starburst slot from NetEnt. Any winnings from the spins have a 10x wagering requirement within seven days. Now, those winnings might not yield much initially but you will complete the 10x wagering very quickly compared to grinding 40x through a bonus that is double in the amount. Plus, cashouts are not limited, meaning anything you have in your balance is yours to keep once the wagering is completed.
