Today, “Dash Casino” is a part of the much loved 32 Red group, pretty much unanimously regarded as being one of the very best casino groups in the business. When that takeover occurred there was a very large number of players currently waiting for withdrawals, or were having some kind of trouble with Dash, so the news was most definitely welcomed.
One of the best developments as a result of the takeover was an improved welcome bonus offer – it’s not the most generous you will find online by any means, but deposit at least £50 and you will receive a 100% match, another £50, in bonus funds. Sadly, Dash have recently increased the wagering requirement on this welcome bonus from 30x the bonus to 40x, whilst must certainly take it from being more or less EV neutral to EV negative (EV is a gambling industry term for “Expected Value”, for those unaware), but if your just looking for a little extra playtime with the possibility of a decent cashout, its still a decent bonus.
Because of the increase in wagering requirement, I would probably recommend depositing £150, rather than £50 – the bonus is still capped at £50, as its not a straightforward 100% bonus, but luckily the wagering requirement is not the deposit+bonus type that is rapidly becoming commonplace – you can deposit as much as you like, and only have a 40x £50 (£2,000 total) wagering requirement, which will be all the easier to complete with a slightly larger deposit.
In my own case, I deposited £50 and received £50 bonus with the old 30x wagering requirement. I started off playing blackjack, choosing the “European Blackjack Gold Multi-Hand” version, and quickly had my balance up to over £250 with some pretty crazy betting. From there I switched to Playboy at 60p per spin, and on my 3rd bonus round hit a nice big win of around £180. I eventually completed my wagering requirement with around £250, but kept playing (being the fool I am!) until hitting £150 and deciding to call it a day.
My withdrawal was processed in around 4 hours back to my Skrill account, and I continue to play at Dash quite regularly, as for some, almost certainly entirely psychological reason, I just seem to be much luckier playing here than at 32red. I know it’s irrational, but hey I’m a gambler!
As mentioned above, Dash have recently increased the wagering requirement on their welcome bonus from 30x the bonus amount, to 40x. They do not place a wagering requirement on your deposited amount also, so you can deposit as much as you like, but will only receive £50 in bonus funds, and have a £2,000 wagering requirement regardless of your deposit size. It's disappointing, but i guess it must have been necessary with the money this group will now be losing as a result of the recent UK regulations imposed on them. :(
