What is a Betway Flexy Bonus?
Unlike other Casino, once your matching Bonus is added to your account and you place a bet let’s say of $10, $5 will be taken from your cash account and $5 from your bonus account. Now every winning will also be split 50-50 between the 2 accounts. In this way even if you don’t meet the wagering requirement, you still have the winning placed with your real money which we find very convenient. And so you can withdraw your cash balance at any time and no longer tying you into wagering requirement.
Flexy Bonuses can be of different kinds:
Match Bonuses are offers that give a customer a certain amount of extra bonus on top of their deposit. All bonuses credited to your bonus balance will be in the form of a Flexi bonus allowing you to withdraw your cash balance at any time and no longer tying you into wagering requirement.
Free Credits are offers that do not require a deposit, they’re added to your bonus balance and as with all bonuses they have wagering requirements associated before the bonus balance and any associated winnings are available for withdrawal.
Free Spins are awarded on a specific slot game or group of slot games after opting in without a deposit being needed to be made. Once awarded, simply load the slot game and select either ‘Use Free Games Now’ to begin play, ‘Use Later’ to use them later or ‘I do not want this Free Game Offer’ to remove the free spins. Winnings from free spins will be paid into your bonus balance in the form of a Flexi bonus.
