This indicates whether the bonus is Cashable or Non Cashable. A cashable bonus is one that can be cashed after fulfilling the applicable terms and conditions. A non-cashable bonus is one in which only the winnings from the bonus can be cashed after fulfilling the applicable terms and conditions. The bonus amount itself cannot be cashed.
This indicates the percent of the deposit amount that is given as bonus. A bonus amount of 500% implies that the bonus amount will be 500% of the deposit amount.
This gives the maximum bonus amount offered in money (usually $) terms. If the Deposit for Max Bonus is $100 and the Bonus is 500%, then the Max Bonus will be $500.
Deposit for Max Bonus
This is a ceiling on the deposit for the purpose of calculating the bonus. Suppose that the Deposit for Max Bonus is $100 and the Bonus is 500%. If you deposit less than the Deposit for Max Bonus, say $50, your eligible deposit will be $50 and the bonus in money terms will be 500% of $50, which is $250. However if you deposit more than the Deposit for Max Bonus, say $150, your eligible deposit will be the Deposit for Max Bonus, which is $100 in this case. And your bonus in money terms will be 500% of $100, which is $500.
This is the amount that you are entitled to play with. Assuming your deposit equals the Deposit for Max Bonus, then the amount that you can play with is the sum of the deposit and the bonus.
This is the amount that you have to wager before you can request a withdrawal of your winnings. Some casinos specify it as a multiple of the play with amount, which is the sum of the deposit, d, and bonus, b. Others specify it as a multiple of the bonus only. If d = $100 and b = $500 and the wagering requirement is ‘25xb&d’, then you must wager $15,000 before you can request a withdrawal.
Some slots indicate a payout percent. The larger the payout%, the lower the house cut (100 minus payout %) and the better it is for the player.
