I recently received bonuses from the casino, and my first thought is: why do I need them? Those who perceive bonuses as a feature are deeply mistaken. This is a burden, because of which you will not be able to withdraw your own money for a long time.
That’s what I thought until I started to figure it out.
Let’s start with the fact that the gambler obviously plays at a loss. This is indicated by the theoretical rate return percentage (RTP) specified by the manufacturer. It can be 94, 96, or even 99%. But it will never be 100%. What does it mean? And the fact that the player not only does not earn, but not even all their bets will return back.
For example, the RTP of this slot is 96%. You played 10 times and spent $100. Your winnings will be $96, because the casino takes 4% a priori. The game club is always in the black and you can’t beat it. His earnings are known to be determined by the RTP of slot machines.
What does this have to do with bonuses?
The bonuses increase the amount of the Deposit. For example, I received a 100% bonus for registering in Vulkan Bet, and now I have $200 instead of $100 in my account. First, it allows me to place more bets, which increases the chances of seeing a winning combination. Secondly, you can use them to get a positive mathematical expectation in slots. How does it work?
I have $100 that is not yet money. In order for them to miraculously turn into a hard coin, you need to fulfill the conditions of the X35 wager – place bets on the amount of $3500 (100*35=3500). The Meridian or starting point will be the slot machine where I lose $100 with a total number of bets of $3500. The percentage of its return should be 97.14%, since $100 from $3500 is 2.86% – this is the casino’s share, and 100-2, 86=97.14%. So, a slot with such an RTP will bring us to zero, and games with a large percentage of returns will bring profit.
