How are percentage bonuses calculated?


Below we’ve created a simple percentage bonus chart. This is to give you an idea of how much you get on a deposit bonus offer, as well as some idea on wagering requirements for these offers.

The calculations are fairly simple mathematics, and most casinos will do it automatically for you. So when you go to deposit, the mobile casino should say the amount you are about to receive in bonus money based on how much you are about to transfer over.

If, however, you prefer to get a simpler source and an easier way to see if an deposit offer is worthwhile, simply use our casino bonus calculator. It’s quick, it’s easy to use on your mobile or online, and it will let you know how much you need to play through the wagering – including for no deposit bonuses as well as welcome offers.

But if you still want to know the logic and calculation behind the percentage bonus and wagering, below is an example.

So if you deposit €20:

Casino % on offerWagering (bonus only – so the amount the casino deposit x wagering below)Casino gives you for free: (your deposit + the percentage of that deposit)You play with a total of: (Your deposit + what the casino gives you)Amount of bets you need to play in order to withdraw winnings. (with the wagering)
25%x35€5€25€175
50%x35€10€30€350
75%x35€15€35€525
100%x35€20€40€700
150%x35€30€50€1050
200%x35€40€80€1400

You can see how the wagering requirement is crucial to your chances of winning. The chances of betting €1,400 worth of bets, on an initial deposit of €80 are… not impossible but difficult.
