A game weighting percentage specifies how much of your stake count towards your wagering requirement in a specific game.
The higher the percentage, the more likely you are to complete the wagering requirement.
This concept is best explained by looking at an example.
For starters, here’s an example of game weighting percentages you’ll typically find at a casino:
- Slots games (100%)
- Poker games(5%)
As you can see, slots are 100% weighted. This means your entire stake counts towards the wagering requirement. So, for every $1 you spend, an equivalent amount is subtracted from your wagering requirement.
Poker games, however, are only 5% weighted. So, when you play a $1 hand, only $0.05 is deducted from your wagering requirement. Consequently, you have to spend much more to wager your bonus.
Slots are typically fully-weighted, while all other games have percentages between 0% and 20%. Therefore, it’s wise to wager a bonus on slots – it’s the most efficient way to turn a bonus into real cash.
