Terms and Conditions

The PokerStars Casino Welcome bonus currently consists of a bonus of 100% up to $500 plus up to 1000 complimentary spins on Millionaire Island. It should be noted that the number of complimentary spins received in awarded in a lottery style. As the probability of each outcome is published it is possible to assert that the average number of complimentary spins received will be 32. Players should also be aware that the PokerStars bonus uses a poorly explained wagering requirement system where the wagering requirements are expressed in terms of the number of "redemption points" they player needs to earn and each game earns redemption points at a different rate. We have converted this to a more standard xbonus model based on the player playing the Thunderstruck slots game. The minimum deposit that will trigger the bonus is $50. This bonus has a wagering requirement of 32xbonus for the deposit bonus and 24xwinnings for the complimentary spins. The bonus uses the standard bonus structure with funds being locked from the moment of deposit until all wagering requirements are met and bets with both deposited and bonus funds contributing to the wagering requirement. There is no maximum bet term associated with this bonus. There is no maximum allowed win associated with either the bonus or complimentary spins. The bonus is cashable. Bonus and associated winnings will expire after 14 days if the wagering requirements are not completed. Game Weightings:
  • Each game weighted individually - see the PokerStars site for further information.

Available to newly registered players only.

Every effort is made to ensure these terms are accurate and up-to-date, however we accept no responsibility for inaccuracies or errors. It is your responsibility to ensure that you confirm the terms of any promotion you accept with the operators website before you play.

 

 

 

Simulations

Our review will provide a value for Low Rollers, Mid Rollers and High Rollers. Each category will use the same slots game (Thunderstruck) for accurate comparison. Low Rollers will use the minimum possible bet size ($0.09/spin) and a low deposit value of $30. Mid Rollers will use an average player bet size ($0.54/spin) and an average deposit value of $50. High Rollers will use a large player bet size ($4.95/spin) and a large deposit size of £$00. Super High Rollers will use a large player bet size ($9.99/spin) and a large deposit size of $500. The value of the complimentary spins will be assessed first and added on to the value of the bonus at the end of simulation.

 

 

Complimentary Spins Complimentary Spins have to be assessed in two steps. Firstly the average win for the Complimentary Spins have to be established and secondly the wagering requirement has to be assessed for that average win to find how much the player will be left with on average. In the case of the PokerStars Casino complimentary spins we have 32 complimentary spins on Millionaire Island with a value of $0.50/spin. That’s a total of 32x0.50 = $16.00 of wagers. The average win from the complimentary spins will simply be the total wagers multiplied by the RTP. So 16.00x0.9657 = $15.45. We then take the $15.45 win and assess the impact of the wagering requirement. The wagering requirement will be 15.45x24 = $370.80. We then conduct the following simulations for Low, Mid and High Roller play: Low Roller

So the complimentary spin value is $8.82 when placing minimum bets. Mid Roller

Complimentary spin value is $11.56. High Roller

Complimentary spin value is $13.25. Super High Roller

Complimentary spin value is $13.79.

 

 

Deposit Bonuses The structure of the PokerStars Casino bonus is of the straightforward kind where bonus terms apply from the moment of deposit. This makes for a very straight forward simulation that requires only one step. Low Roller Bonus Using a deposit of $30 with a bonus of $30, with a wagering requirement of 30x32 = $960 and a bet size of $0.09/spin we get the following results:

So the value of the bonus is $1.50. Adding the value of the complimentary spins we get $1.50 + $8.82 = $10.32. Mid Roller Bonus Using a deposit of $50 with a bonus of $50, with a wagering requirement of 50x32 = $160 and a bet size of $0.54/spin we get the following results:

So the value of the bonus is $14.10. Adding the value of the complimentary spins we get $14.10 + $11.56 = $25.66. High Roller Bonus Using a deposit of $100 with a bonus of $100, with a wagering requirement of 100x32 = $3200 and a bet size of $4.95/spin we get the following results:

So the value of the bonus is $52.85. Adding the value of the complimentary spins we get $52.85 + $13.25 = $64.10. Super High Roller Bonus Using a deposit of $500 with a bonus of $500, with a wagering requirement of 500x32 = $16000 and a bet size of $9.99/spin we get the following results:

So the value of the bonus is $195.94. Adding the value of the complimentary spins we get $195.94+ $13.79 = $209.73.
