Online Mines Games Withdrawal Restrictions Related to Bonuses
At fair online casinos, players can request a withdrawal from their real-money balance prior to clearing the playthrough of an active bonus. The casino will then cancel the bonus, void the associated winnings, and process the requested withdrawal.
Less ethical operators sometimes lock your entire cash balance, making it impossible to withdraw anything, not even your own money, unless you fulfill the wagering requirements. There are many variations of this predatory clause but the wording is usually something among these lines:
“If a player has opted in for a bonus or a promotion, it is their sole responsibility to ensure all applicable wagering is cleared before requesting a withdrawal. Failure to clear the wagering requirements results in the withdrawal request being denied.”
We consider this clause predatory and unfair to players and suggest you take your action elsewhere if you see a similar phrasing in the terms and conditions of your chosen casino.
Bonus terms and conditions may be intimidating, especially if you are less experienced at online gambling, but you still have to read them carefully. By doing so, you ensure you do not overlook any important rules that could lead to bonus forfeiture due to term violations. This practice also helps you spot predatory terms like those discussed above and sift out the promotions that give you the best value for your money.
