Beating Bonuses Beating Bonuses




I consider Wagerworks to be the highest quality instant play casino software in use today. Graphics, features, and general quality of games rival many of the download softwares. However, time outs related to a poor hosting server, issues with too many game windows open, and other errors may occur. Game selection is unique. Wagerworks offers several blackjack and roulette variations not found elsewhere, such as power blackjack. Yet they do not offer several common table games, such as Pai Gow poker and war. Some players particularly like their slots. A highlight of the software is listing expected payouts of all games. I wish other softwares would take this approach. Wagerworks casinos are reputable as a whole. Casinos generally pay winnings and reply to support emails in a timely manner. Most players seem to be satisfied with game returns using this software.

Wagerworks bonuses are cashable, in spite of misleading wording about the bonus being "non-withdrawable" in some T&Cs. Bonuses are awarded after completing wagering. After the bonus is received, you may need to play throuh the bonus 1x to convert it to cash. Game restrictions and wagering rules vary, so be sure to read the T&C. Some Wagerworks casinos offer periodic reload bonuses, in addition to the sign-up.


Country Restrictions

Wagerworks casinos exclude players from many countries including Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States. The Orbis / Wagerworks casinos have different exclusions. Mecca Games permits players from Australia, Canada and Germany. Sky Vegas permits players from Canada.

Table Definitions

Group -- Casinos often are linked together with a single group. These groups are listed in the table. I recommend not simultaneously playing two sign up bonuses from the same group. Wait until payment is received, then move to the next casino.

Bonus EV -- EV stands for Expected Value. Bonus EV indicates the average expected gain of the bonus with the following strategy -- Playthrough the bonus on the listed game with unlimited banrkoll.

Max Bonus -- Max bonus indicates the maximum bonus that can be received.

Bonus % -- Bonus % indicates the ratio between the bonus and your deposit. If a $300 bonus is given on a $100 deposit, the bonus % is 300%.

Wager -- Wager indicates the wagering requirement for the bonus. All wagering requirements are expressed in terms of the bonus.

Game -- Game indicates the recommended game to play the bonus.

Type -- Cashable bonuses are given at the start of wagering and become withdrawable after completing wagering. Like cashable bonuses, post-wager bonuses are withdrawable after completing wagering. However, they are not given until completing wagering. Unique bonuses have unique rules and do not fit in any of the categories above.

Notes -- Notes indicates other important things to take note of, such as associated warnings.
