What are Flexi Bonuses & Free Bets?

Flexi Bonuses – Flexi Bonus is our name for the way in which our new bonus system works and allows you to withdraw your cash balance at any time. It works on a principle we call *Bonus to Cash ratio* (BCR). BCR is the percentage split between your total cash balance and your current bonus balance.

Free Bets – Free Bets are given to customers to wager on any sports. Winnings will be paid into your cash balance minus the initial Free Bet amount and are not subject to any additional wagering requirements.

How does the Flexi Bonus work?

When you have an active Flexi Bonus and place a bet, the amount you bet will come from your cash balance and your bonus balance at your BCR ratio at the time of the wager being placed. Winnings are also allocated back to your cash and bonus balance in the same ratio as they were placed.

What are Match Bonuses, Free Credits, Free Spins and Bonus Spins?

All our bonuses will now be in the form of our new Flexi Bonus.

  • 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.
  • Free Credits - are offers that do not require a deposit, they're added to your bonus balance and as with all bonuses (excluding Free Bets) 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.
  • Bonus Spins - are awarded on a specific slot game or group of slot games upon opting in and depositing. Simply load the slot game and as with free spins either select '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 bonus spins will be paid into your bonus balance in the form of a Flexi bonus.


Are there wagering requirements on my bonus?

Sports Welcome Bonus - to withdraw any bonus and any associated winnings you must wager an amount equal to 10 x the amount of the bonus awarded. 

Different odds contribute different amounts towards these wagering requirements. 

Wagering requirements apply to bonus money but not to Free Bets. See below for our easy guide to wagering requirements.

Casino, Live Casino and Vegas Welcome Bonuses - to withdraw any bonus and any associated winnings you must wager an amount equal to 50 x the amount of the bonus awarded. 

No Deposit Welcome Bonus (these are bonuses granted to new players that haven't had to make a deposit) – to withdraw any bonus and any associated winnings you must wager an amount equal to 100 x the amount of the bonus awarded. The maximum amount that can be withdrawn from this promotion is $50. 

All Other Flexi Bonus - In order to withdraw these bonuses and any associated winnings you must wager an amount equal to 30x the amount of the bonus awarded.

When can I withdraw my cash balance?

That’s the best thing about our bonuses, you can withdraw your cash balance at any time! All that happens is you forfeit your current bonus balance at the time of withdrawal. If you don’t want to lose your bonus, simple carry on wagering until you have met the applicable wagering requirements. But remember your cash balance is yours whenever you want it.

Do I have to take a bonus?

Of course not! Every bonus we offer is optional and you will need to ‘opt in’ which means you must confirm that you want it before we award it. If you change your mind after you have opted in, contact support who will happily remove it for you whether you have started playing or not. 

How do Free Bets work?

There are no wagering requirements on your Free Bets. Winnings will be paid into your cash balance minus the initial free bet amount and are not subject to any additional wagering requirements. Please see the ‘Free Bet General Terms’ section in ‘Flexi Bonus General Terms and Conditions’ below for more details.

1. What is a Flexi Bonus?

Flexi Bonus is our name for the way in which our new bonus system works and allows you to withdraw your cash balance at any time. It works on a principle we call *Bonus to Cash ratio* (BCR). BCR is the percentage split between your total cash balance and your current bonus balance.

When you have an active Flexi Bonus and place a bet, the amount you bet will come from your cash balance and your bonus balance at your BCR ratio at the time of the wager being placed. Winnings are also allocated back to your cash and bonus balance in the same ratio as they were placed. We have set out below some examples to explain this, based on a new customer who has signed up and deposited $20 and received a 100% match bonus ($20 bonus).

Example 1 – Deposit $20 and get $20 bonus

$20 Cash Balance and $20 Bonus balance would be a 50% / 50% BCR.
$20 Cash plus $20 Bonus = $40 total balance (50% made up of cash and 50% made up of bonus)

Using example 1 above – If you bet $10, $5 will come from your cash balance and $5 from your bonus balance. If you win $20 from this bet, $10 (50% of the win) will go into your cash balance and $10 (50% of the win) will go into your bonus balance. The $25 cash balance is available for you to withdraw but the $25 bonus balance will be subject to wagering requirements. 

Example 2 – Currently have $10 cash and $10 bonus balance and deposit $20 cash with no bonus match

$30 Cash Balance and $10 Bonus balance would be a 75% / 25% BCR.
$30 Cash plus $10 Bonus = $40 total balance (75% made up of cash and 25% made up of bonus)

Using example 2 above – If you place a $10 bet, $7.50 will come from your cash balance and $2.50 from your bonus balance. If you win $20 from this wager, $15 (75% of the win) will go into your cash balance and $5 (25% of the win) will go into your bonus balance. The $37.50 cash balance is available for you to withdraw but the $12.50 bonus balance will be subject to wagering requirements. 

If you only use bonus as you have no cash balance to bet, your Bonus to Cash ratio (BCR) will be 100%, and therefore all of your wagering and winnings will be debited/ credited from/to your bonus balance.

What happens when I complete wagering on a bonus – when you complete the full wagering on the bonus, your entire bonus balance will be transferred to your Cash balance and become available for you to withdraw. 

Remember bonuses still have wagering requirements dependent on the type of bonuses they are. At the time of any associated wagering on your bonus account being completed the entire bonus balance will be transferred to the cash balance.

2. Flexi Bonus General Terms

5. Advantage Play

We offer our valued customers promotions and bonuses to reward them. To enable us to continue offering these promotions, we have a zero-tolerance policy on activity which is designed to take advantage of our offers in violation of these terms. If any of the activity identified below occurs, we reserve the right to stop any further bonuses, promotions and/or offers and remove the bonus balance from these and/or linked accounts. Please also refer to Section 6 and 7 of the General Terms and Conditions.

Examples of advantage play include:

1. Using more than one account to claim multiple bonuses.

2. Two tier betting (where large bets are placed on high variance outcomes, before switching to normal variance outcomes to clear wagering requirements).

3. Multiple account strategy / proxy account strategy.

4. Using a VPN or masking IP address.

5. Decreasing your stake amount by 60% or more after a large win (5x value of your last deposit or more) for the purpose of clearing wagering requirements while a bonus is still active. E.g. Winning $100 on any spin including a double up and reducing your stake amount to $50 or less.

6. Moving from a low weighted game (25% wagering contribution or less) to a higher weighted contribution game (70% or more) after large wins for the purpose of clearing wagering requirements. For example but not limited to placing bets on roulette and then after a win moving your game play to slots to clear wagering.

7. Where bonus funds are used by the customer to progress through the bonus stages/collectable features (i.e. collecting 9 out of 10 symbols to reach a bonus feature) and then return to the final stage to complete the collection feature with cash only bets, with the aim of returning associated winnings in cash only once bonus funds have been forfeited, lost or wagering requirements have been met.

8. You place at least one bet on any game that has a weighting of 20% or less towards wagering, the resulting win is 100% more than the corresponding stake and you move your original stake and winnings to a game weighted at 100% in order to meet wagering requirements.

9. When playing with a no-deposit bonus in your account, if you bet more than 10% of the bonus amount in a single bet, spin or round, your bonus and winnings may be voided.

10. If you have arrived from a website which promotes gambling in a manner in violation of these terms.

Betway considers all the above Terms to be fair. Should you require any clarification or advice regarding these Terms, please contact Customer Support.
