That being said, these are the rules:

*Operators may offer bonuses and promotions along with a wagering requirement to clear, and upon cashout players must be able to always withdraw an amount equal to their original deposit as long as there is credit in their account.

*All bonuses and promotions remain active while the player has a positive balance in his account, once the balance reaches zero all bonuses and promotions end and the requirements will not be carried forward to the next deposit.

*Operators have the right to ask players to make their first bet with the money they deposited rather than with any bonus money that has been credited to their account.

*A player may withdraw from a bonus or promotional offer at any point and still be able to cash out the amount of their original deposit if there is credit in his account.

*All terms and conditions for bonuses and promotions must be fully disclosed by the operator, including all information for wagering requirements and cashout restrictions..

*Operators may not set a cap on winnings to be obtained by a player through a bonus or promotion.

*The restrictions for online gambling do not apply to the operator if the bonus or promotion is linked to one of their land offers.
