Royal Panda’s promotions and bonuses explained

Here at Royal Panda we like to think we have something for everyone, that’s why we offer a huge range of permanent promotions and bonuses, such as our Welcome Bonus, Bamboo Bonus and Lucky 21 promotion, as well as a huge variety of fun and exciting time-limited promotions and bonuses running throughout the year.

When it comes to promotions, we like to do things differently. Unlike other casinos, when you play at Royal Panda you’ll always start playing with your cash balance first, which we think is a better and fairer system. This also means, that if you don’t meet the wagering requirements for a promotion or bonus first time round, you can redeposit and keep on going until you do.

How casino bonuses work

To understand how our unique casino bonuses work, there are a few terms you need to know. But don’t worry, as it’s really quite simple.

  • Cash balance screenCash balance: the balance available for immediate withdrawal. It consists of money you’ve deposited, winnings won using it, and any bonus money you’ve met the wagering requirement for.
  • Bonus balance: the balance still tied to our wagering requirements. It consists of bonus money received and any bonus winnings.
  • Bonus money: the bonus amount received. To release it for withdrawal, you’ll need to wager 35 times this amount using bets made with your cash balance on casino games.
  • Bonus winnings: any winnings won using your bonus money. These are added to your bonus balance. When you meet the wagering requirement for your bonus money, any winnings won using it are automatically released for withdrawal as well.
  • Total balance: the total balance (cash balance + bonus balance).
  • Wagering requirements: the number of times you have to wager the bonus money before you are eligible to withdraw your bonus. Only wagers made using your cash balance count towards the wagering requirements.

You can view your balances by hovering your mouse over your balance at the top of your screen. Why don’t you try it out?

This is how our casino bonuses work – it really is that simple.

Tell me more about wagering requirements

As previously explained, wagering requirements (also known as playthrough requirements) are the number of times you have to wager an amount equal to the initial bonus money received before you are eligible to withdraw your bonus money and any winnings won using it.

  • Wagering requirements can only be met with cash balance (deposited funds + any money won with deposited funds + released bonus money) bets. Bets made with your bonus balance do not contribute towards the wagering requirements.
  • You’ll always start playing with your cash balance first. You will only start playing with your bonus balance if you have used up your cash balance and haven’t re-deposited. To meet the wagering requirements once your cash balance has run out, you’ll need to deposit more funds. Don’t worry, re-depositing will not cancel your bonus or bonus winnings. Bonus money only expires after 90 days.

The advantages of Royal Panda’s bonus system

The advantage of Royal Panda’s bonus system is that if you win with your original deposit, you are not tied to any wagering requirements. You’ll be able to withdraw any winnings immediately.

Is your cash balance running low and you haven’t released your bonus balance or made another deposit? Don't worry, because the fun continues with your bonus balance. In order to release your bonus balance, all you need to do is fulfill the remaining wagering requirement on your initially granted bonus money.

Example 1: how to release your bonus money

  • You deposit $10. We give you a $10 bonus. Your total balance is now $20.
  • To clear the $10 bonus money (and any possible bonus winnings) for withdrawal, you’ll need to wager $350 in total ($10 x 35) using your cash balance on casino games. Only wagers made using your cash balance count towards the wagering requirements.

Example 2: how to release your bonus money + bonus winnings

  • You deposit $10. We give you a $10 bonus. Your total balance is now $20.
  • To clear the $10 bonus money (and any possible bonus winnings) for withdrawal, you’ll need to wager $350 in total using your cash balance ($10 x 35) on casino games.
  • You play until the last of your initial $10 cash balance is gone. The total amount wagered is $300. This means you’re still $50 away from meeting the wagering requirement ($350 - $300 = $50).
  • You play on using your $10 bonus balance. Lady Luck is on your side, and you win $190. Your bonus balance is now $200.
  • In order to release your $200 bonus balance, you still need to wager $50 ($350 - $300 = $50) with cash balance bets. To do so, you’ll need to deposit again.
  • You make a $50 deposit, and keep on playing. Remember, once you’ve deposited again, you’ll automatically start playing with your cash balance. Keep going until the wagering requirement is met.
  • Withdraw your bonus and bonus winnings, together with your remaining cash balance and winnings!

Please note your sports bets won’t count towards the wagering requirement for casino-exclusive bonuses, such as our weekly Bamboo Bonus.

Why are wagering requirements used?

Wagering requirements are used to prevent fraud and bonus abuse, and are used by every online casino.

Without wagering requirements, anyone could claim a bonus and withdraw it (also known as cashing it out) without ever actually playing. Without wagering requirements, half the globe would probably open an account at Royal Panda just to claim and withdraw their free $100. And while we love to be charitable, that simply wouldn’t work!
