Big Weekend Giveaway Bonus Wagering Requirements

Winners of this promotion won’t be able to withdraw their bonus immediately. Prior to being permitted to withdraw either the Bonus Money itself or any associated winnings, there is very reasonable wagering requirement of 1x the bonus for slots or 5x the bonus for any other game.

The reason why the wagering requirement is less for slots is that slots count 100% towards clearing the bonus whereas other games only count 20%. However, 5x the bonus is still quite reasonable. It is also a lot less than the minimum wagering that most bonuses impose for non-slot play.

Therefore, if you prefer to clear your bonus playing a game with a lower house edge than slots, such as video poker or blackjack, the wagering terms are still accessible.

Note that in clearing the bonus, players’ own deposited funds are wagered first, then the Bonus Money. Players have 7 days to clear the bonus.

How Does the Big Weekend Giveaway Compare to Other Promotions?

Big Weekend Giveaway is the right title for this promotion because that description is no exaggeration. The total prize pool is a very impressive $10,000,in Bonus Money with the big draw, of course, being the $5,000 top prize. The other prizes range from $10 Bonus Dollars all the way up to $500 Bonus Dollars. Even though many more players will have to settle for a small prize rather than a big one, try to look at the bright side of the picture. With 200 winners, the chances of your walking away empty-handed are a lot less than in most online casino prize drawings.

Another great feature of this promotion is that the bonuses come with very manageable wagering requirements. For slots, it’s a minuscule 1x the bonus; for any other game, it’s a still more than okay 5x the bonus. You are also given a full week to clear the bonus. Big winners should take advantage of this extra allotted time rather than try to clear the bonus all in one day.

A Cap on No. of Entries Would Make This Great Promotion Even Better

The minimum deposit of $20 for one entry into the drawing is within reach of practically everyone, so from that standpoint, small bettors and high rollers are on equal footing. However, players are given the option to deposit hundreds of dollars, or presumably even thousands of dollars, to earn additional entries. I don’t have a problem with that except for one thing. My concern is that there doesn’t appear to be any cap on the number of extra entries any one person can have. So there is nothing to stop players with deep pockets from making huge deposits, not necessarily to bet big, but simply to earn lots of entries into the drawing. This would greatly skew the odds in their favor, while significantly reducing the likelihood of winning for smaller players who cannot afford deposits of that magnitude.

Given the above, should you make a huge deposit to improve your chances if this is not something you ordinarily do? My advice is no, and the reason is the great temptation, once the money is in your account, to wager it. If it greatly exceeds what you know you can afford to wager (and possibly lose), don’t deposit it. Make a deposit you can afford and leave the rest to the luck of the draw.

The Bottom Line

If you’re a player, regardless of whether you’re a high roller or not, you should take advantage of Big Bonus Giveaway Weekend. It’s very rare that this many players get an opportunity to win Bonus Money, and possibly even a big bonus, with no play required prior to the drawing. Then you are given a full week to clear your bonus with only a 1x or 5x bonus wagering requirement. This promotion could be your “golden opportunity” to give yourself a big win. Don’t miss it!
