Explanation of the The Fields


Deposit Amount

How much you transfer from your credit/debit card to the casino. Put a whole number in this field (no pennies please!)


Free Money Amount

How much ‘free’ money the casino is willing to give you before you make a deposit. Usually these range from $5 to $20 on average.


Percentage Deposit Bonus (%)

How much of a percentage the casino is offering to increase your deposit by. So the offer usually looks like 50% up to $100. Type in ‘50’ in this field, in this case.


Wagering Requirements

The amount of times the casinos wants you to play the money before you can withdraw. These can either be on the bonus alone, the bonus and the amount you deposit or, on the case of free money, the bonus and how much you win using that bonus. Be especially careful of that last one – it’s a killer offer, and we don’t mean in a good way.


Game Contribution Percentage (%)

Slot games generally contribute 100% towards your wagering requirements. You’ll usually find in the terms and conditions of the bonuses information like:

  • Slot Games: 100% (contribution to bonus)
  • Instant Win Games: 50% (contribution to bonus)
  • Table Games: 10% (contribution to bonus)


The Results


Free Bonus Amount

This is how much the casino is giving you to play on top of your deposit. We’ve left this here so of the percentage amount is random (134% or 27%) you can easily see the value of the offer.


Total Play Money

This is how much you’ll have at the casino, in total, to play with. So it’s basically the free bonus money and your deposit.


Amount You Need to Bet

The whole point of this calculator. This is the amount of bets, in numerical form, you’ll have to make in order to cash out your winnings and your bonus.


We hope this calculator is of some use to help you decide how and what casino bonus to take.
