What is a wagering requirement?
A wagering requirement is a set requirement of the number of times you need to multiply your awarded bonus in order to claim your winnings. Online casinos often offer special bonuses to lure (new) players to sign up and/or deposit money into their accounts. Most bonuses consist of a free spin bonus of a multiplier of your deposit. The wagering requirement on these bonuses give the player the obligation to multiply their given bonus a certain amount of times before they will be able to withdraw them.
For example: You sign up to an online casino and you deposit €50 to your account. The deposit bonus is 200% and the wagering requirement is 5x. Your wagering requirement will be €50 × 200% = €100 multiplied by 5 is €500. In other words, you need to win €500 with your €100 bonus in order to be able to cash out that bonus.
