Over the last few months we have seen many changes happening across the board on the Cozy Games software.
The first change we saw implemented was the change in the minimum deposit amount before withdrawal and the minimum withdrawal amount. We also saw them implement an additional rule that meant rather than just capping the weekly withdrawals at £300, regular depositors were able to withdraw 2x the total value of their deposits in the four weeks prior (if it were higher then £300).
We also saw them introduce Paypal as a depositing option, and a whole suite of new games introduced from NetEnt and Eyecon.
All looked really promising and our dislike of the Cozy Games product appeared to be waning….
Wagering Requirements Farce From Cozy Games
And then this happened! Firstly the sites dropped all their no deposit required welcome bonuses in favour of a free bingo room. An expected move but in typical Cozy fashion, they hard sell and mislead players.
Look at any of the sites that has had their home page updated, for example as seen below, and they say that there is up to £3,000 of free bingo each week. There is, but you’re never going to win that much because what isn’t shown in the T&C’s on the home page is that the winnings in the Newbie Bingo room are capped at £20!
Now, that’s not so bad, but in updating a whole plethora of pages, we noted that actually, the wagering has increased quite substantially on slots. In fact, it has doubled!
Previously the wagering required on deposit related bonus for slots was 10x deposit + bonus and for non-deposit related bonuses, 20x bonus.
Now it is a hefty 20x deposit + bonus and for non-deposit related bonus like the winnings from the Newbie Bingo room, it’s a whopping 40x bonus!
Why are the wagering requirements doubled? Are the players paying for the privilege of having a Newbie Bingo room? It certainly looks that way.
Cozy Games, get back in the bad books! You’re an Indian giver* – you give and then you take away.
