Terms and Conditions

The Reel Island Welcome bonus currently consists of a bonus of 100% up to £100 plus 25 complimentary spins on Starburst.

The minimum deposit that will trigger the bonus is £10.

This bonus has a wagering requirement of 35x(deposit+bonus) for the deposit bonus and 35xwinnings for the free spin winnings.

The bonus is structured so that only wagering with bonus funds, which are stacked beneath the deposited funds, counts towards the wagering requirement. This also means that bonus restrictions, do not apply while you are wagering with your deposited funds. In other words as long as you are only using deposited funds you can withdraw at any time you like. (The standard bonus structure where all funds are locked until wagering requirements have been completed are used for non-UK players.)

The maximum allowed bet is £5 on any single round of play. Minimum bets of £1 are required to count towards wagering requirements.

There is no maximum win on the deposit bonus or the complimentary spins and the complimentary spins carry a maximum win of £50.

The bonus is cashable.

Players from the following countries are not eligible to receive this bonus – Armenia, Poland, Greece, Hungary, Croatia, Ukraine, India, Russia, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Serbia

Players depositing via Neteller or Skrill are not eligible to receive this bonus.

Bonus and associated winnings will expire after 30 days if the wagering requirements are not completed.

Simulations

Our review will provide a value for High Rollers. Each category will use the same slots game (Thunderstruck) for accurate comparison.

High Rollers will use a player bet size (£4.95/spin) and a deposit value of £100.

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 Reel Island complimentary spins we have 25 complimentary spins on Starburst with a value of £0.10/spin. That’s a total of 25×0.10 = £2.50 of wagers. The average win from the complimentary spins will simply be the total wagers multiplied by the RTP. So 2.50×0.961 = £2.40.

We then take the £2.40 win and assess the impact of the wagering requirement. The wagering requirement will be 2.40×35 = £84. We then conduct the following simulations for Low, Mid and High Roller play:

High Roller

Free spin value is £0.71.

 

 

Deposit Bonus

Due to the structure of the Reel Island bonus where wagers with deposited funds do not count towards the wagering requirement the bonus has to be assessed in two parts: the pre-bonus wagering and the value of the bonus. Once we have conducted these simulations we work out the value of the bonus as follows:

[Expected Loss from pre-bonus play] -([Value of the bonus]x[Chance of using the bonus]) = [Average Expected Value for the bonus]

High Roller Bonus

Using a deposit of £100 with a bonus of £100, with a wagering requirement of 200×35 = £7000 and a bet size of £4.95/spin we get the following results:

We now do a quick sum to calculate the overall value of the bonus:

Average Expected Value for the bonus = -£16.48 + (£64.16×0.8871) = £40.44

Adding the free spin value on to the result above we get £40.44 + £0.71 = £41.15.
