Bingo, Casino and Slots News

Prior to Electraworks taking over the Cozy Games product, any of the brands on either network (Live or Best Bingo Network) owned by 8 Ball Games had higher than standard wagering requirements on the bonuses offered by their sites.

Whilst updating terms and conditions recently we noted that for bingo bonuses the wagering appeared to have reduced by a third. Prior to the change, players on any Cozy Games site owned by 8 Ball Games were expected to wager 6x any bonus that was a) carried forward from free games or b) received as a deposit bonus.

This has now been reduced to 4x.

Free Games Bonus Wagering For 8 Ball Games

As well as the change in the wagering, there is no longer a cap on the winnings on the slots AND no cap on the winnings from the free games in the Newbie Room.

If you play in the Newbie Room and accumulate winnings ahead of making a deposit with any of the 8 Ball Games sites, your winnings will be carried forward as a cash amount to the equivalent value of your first deposit.

For example, if you have won £50 playing in the Newbie Room for seven days at Arctic Bingo for example, and then you make an initial deposit of £25 just half the money would be transferred to real cash.

The 100% bonus on that £25 deposit would be £25  and this amount would have to be wagered 4x to meet the wagering requirements of the bonus.

Slot Spin Wagering From 8 Ball Games

However, whilst the bingo wagering requirements have reduced, there has been an increase in the wagering required for winnings generated by the slot spins offered as part of the welcome package.

The standard wagering for slots, at a maximum, used to be 20x but now it is 40x the winnings generated by the spins awarded on first deposit.
