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 player bet size (€4.95/spin) and a deposit value of €150.

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 Carat complimentary spins we have 20 complimentary spins on Starburst with a value of €0.10/spin. That’s a total of 20×0.10 = €2 of wagers. The average win from the complimentary spins will simply be the total wagers multiplied by the RTP. So 2×0.961 = €1.92.

We then take the €1.92 win and assess the impact of the wagering requirement. The wagering requirement will be 1.92×70 = €134.40. We then conduct the following simulations for Low, Mid and High Roller play:

Low Roller

So the free spin value is €1.22 when placing minimum bets.

Mid Roller

Free spin value is €1.32.

High Roller

Free spin value is €1.46.



Deposit Bonus

The structure of the Carat 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 30×70 = €2100 and a bet size of €0.09/spin we get the following results:

Adding the free spin value on to the result above we get -€12.04 + €1.22 = -€10.82.

Mid Roller Bonus

Using a deposit of €50 with a bonus of €50, with a wagering requirement of 50×70 = €3500 and a bet size of €0.54/spin we get the following results:

Adding the free spin value on to the result above we get -€1.70 + €1.32 = -€0.38.

High Roller Bonus

Using a deposit of €150 with a bonus of €150, with a wagering requirement of 150×70 = €10500 and a bet size of €4.95/spin we get the following results:

Adding the free spin value on to the result above we get €36.86 + €1.46 = €38.26.
