The look of horror on my boyfriends face when I told him I had started tackling a wagering requirement on the "telly roulette" the next day was priceless! He really doesn't think much of "free" money that comes with a 99x wagering string attached, and who can blame him. If your brave enough to try and make your way through almost 1500 of bets on live roulette your going to need to keep betting big and get INCREDIBLY lucky, or have an awful lot of time on your hands. I was betting between £1 and £5 per spin and at the end of the night had only wagered £120. On the second night I was bored after half an hour and switched to playing the slots instead, losing my money in record time.
A 400% match bonus always sounds amazing and I decided to throw a tenner in to play with £50 without really bothering to check the wagering or other terms - I just fancied a gamble and figured £40 free was a good deal. It wasn't until the end of the night I realized that again, the wagering requirement was beyond ridiculous - £2,500 on that £10 deposit which equates to 50x the deposit plus bonus.
After losing both parts of the bonus I didn't bother going back to Jackpot247 and have heard only bad things about them ever since.
