A bonus is free money credited to your account which you can use to play Thunderbolt’s best games. A free bonus always has a playthough and a maximum cash-out amount.

Playthrough is the amount you need to wager, before you can withdraw winnings. The total amount of bets you make must add up to the playthrough, it does not matter if you win or lose on the bet. You can check playthrough in the cashier section of the casino, when you click on your balance.

This is the maximum amount you can withdraw when using a bonus. It varies between the different bonuses.

A match coupon is a promotion which you can activate to boost your deposit. Every match coupon requires a deposit, has a certain playthrough amount and no limit on withdrawal, which means you can cash–out as much as you win after fulfilling the playthrough requirements!

Information about the included games of the coupon on your account and how much the bets count towards the wager requirement is displayed at the Cashier in the Active Coupon section. Note that the allowed games may not count equally towards the wager requirement. How much a bet on a particular game counts is indicated by the number next to it:

  1. Example 1:
    Achilles…….R1.00
    That indicates that 100 % of the wagers on that game count.
  2. Example 2:
    European Roulette…….R0.25
    That indicates that 25 % of the wagers on that game count.
  3. Example 3:
    Keno……..R0
    It indicates that wagers on that game do not count towards the wager requirement, however the game is allowed by the coupon.
  • Your playthrough amount is recalculated by our system everytime you make a bet on a game which counts torwards fulfilment of wagering requirements. You can check outstanding playthrough amount in the Casino lobby, by expanding the tab right below the playable balance amount.

  • MATCH BONUS - a match bonus always matches your deposit e.g. 100% match bonus. If you deposit R100 you get 100% of your deposit on top so you have additional R100 to your already deposited R100.
  • FREE SPINS BONUS - this bonus gives you the possibility to play a given free amount on spins for a specific game. e.g. 50 free spins for Achilles. When you redeem this bonus you can play 50 spins for free on the slot game Achilles. The free spins can only be for this one particular game, they can’t be swapped for another game.
  • FREE MONEY BONUS – such a bonus gives you free money on top. It is quite similar to the match bonus but it is a fixed amount of money you get added to your deposit. eg for one deposit you get R100 on top. If you deposit R100 you get R100 additionally and if you deposit more than R100 you also just get R100 on top.
