Welcome Bonus Review

Welcome bonus score: 65/100, Medium ---.

Welcome bonus discussion: Black Spins is NOT a casino to choose if you want to make money off bonus offers. Rather, it is a casino to play for real money. Mathematical expectation of  winnings from Bonus Money is negative due to high wagering terms that are levied on both bonus money and real money. Black Spins does offer 50 Free Spins on Starburst as a part of their first deposit bonus AND has a whole bunch of online slots that are excluded from bonus wagering (or their stake contribution is reduced).

  • Estimated bonus value to player: negative, most likely you will lose at least a portion of your own real money when trying to wager the bonus.
  • Bonus wagering terms: high, 60 / 100.
  • Free Spins availability: 50 Free Spins on Starburst (worth 10c).
  • Bonus Terms & Conditions: 65 / 100

Deposit Bonus Terms

  • First deposit value: 100% match on the first deposit bonus to 100 NZ$.
  • A minimum deposit to trigger the bonus: 20 NZ$.
  • Bonus credited automatically: yes.
  • Wagering requirements: 40 times the amount of bonus money + your real money deposit.
  • Max bet when wagering: no cap, except when you are using e-Wallets ($0.5 / single bet)
  • Time to wager deposit bonus: 7 days
  • Maximum cash out of winnings gained from a bonus: 5 times the amount of your first deposit.

Bonus Wagering Terms

40x(B+D), i.e. 40 times the amount of bonus money + your real money deposit

If your first deposit is $100, you are awarded an additional $100. The resulting amount of $200 is locked for withdrawal till you wager it 40 times: 40 x $200 = $8000.

  • Slots/Scratch cards/Numbers Games: 100%
  • Premium Slots*: 75%

Casino Games available at Black Spin

Casino Games Score: 75/ 100.

Casino Games discussion: Black Spins has a lot of online slots games, yet, the layout of a casino’s lobby is not really comfortable. There’s no way to filter online slots by a software manufacturer. Slots are not organized well enough and the navigation is a little cumbersome.
