13.5 In the interests of fair gaming, any equal, zero or low margin bets or hedge betting, shall all be considered irregular gaming for bonus play-through requirement purposes. Irregular game play includes but is not limited to, placing single bets equal to or in excess of 30% or more of the value of the bonus credited (or percentage defined within the promotional offer) to their account until such time as the wagering requirements for that bonus have been met.
For this rule, a bet is defined as one roulette spin or one dealer's dealt hand in any table game, or one deal in any Video or Power Poker game (this includes Multi-Hand/Play games).
The use of the double or gamble feature shall be considered a new bet and as such is beholding to bonus terms and max bet restrictions. Should we deem that irregular game play has occurred; we reserve the right treat any such winnings as not being Legitimate Winnings and make the appropriate entry to the affected Player Account(s).
The use of bonus funds purely to progress through the bonus stages for any of the Services is also deemed irregular play.
Players with an active bonus that moves after winning from low weighted games like table games, to high weighted games such as a slot (or first bets high and then low with a stake not in proportion to the balance) with the sole purpose of completing wagering requirements will be reviewed for irregular game play. This includes but is not limited to moving from a low weighted game to a high weighted game after large wins for the purpose of clearing wagering requirements.
13.6 Bonus wagering requirements must be fulfilled within 30 days from the date the bonus was issued to the account, otherwise the bonus amount received and any winnings generated through the bonus will be forfeited. Only the fund-in amount will be returned.
13.7 Players with pending withdrawals cannot receive bonuses.
13.8 All free spins assigned to a player account must be used within 7 days, unused free spins will be removed thereafter.
13.9 Any winnings from free spins will be credited as a bonus and will be subject to 50 times wagering before they can be withdrawn.
13.10 The maximum that can be won from free spins is £500.
