They are only worth claiming if the wagering requirements are reasonable and achievable. Before you use bonuses from a particular online casino, you have to understand how wagering conditions work.

Also known as "playthrough requirements," wagering requirements always go hand in hand with most online casino bonuses and they are typically mentioned in the terms and conditions. If you fail to review them, you might end up confused when you decide to withdraw your winnings.

Basically, you have to wager a multiple of the bonus value, and sometimes, including the initial deposit amount. Depending on the game you're playing, the wagering requirement may range from 4x to 30x that sum. This means that for you to be able to withdraw your winnings, you have to wager four to thirty times the bonus plus deposit amount. Here's an example. Let's say the wagering requirement is 20x and the bonus you want to claim is 100% for up to £200. You want to get that extra £200, so you decide to deposit £200. In total, you have £400 (bonus+deposit). For you to be able to cash out your winnings, you have to wager 20 times the bonus and deposit amount. This means that you have to bet £8,000 first. Yes, it can get as crazy as that.

That is why it is important for you to read the wagering requirements and see if it is reasonable enough and achievable. If you think there is no way for you to meet the conditions, then the bonus is absolutely not worth it.
