One great thing about this promotion is that you also receive fifty free spins as part of the deal but unlike the other White Hat casinos you can actually use them on any NetEnt slot, meaning you can choose to play them on either your favourite game or the one with the highest minimum bet. Obviously for me that means using them on a high value slot. I tried Jack Hammer 2 first of all as I know that is a 50p minimum spin game but as with so many other places it is on the excluded list for free spins (not sure why this is always the case???) so ended up playing them on Reel Rush instead.
As for the match bonus, my £80 deposit was doubled to £160, wagering is set at 35x the deposit and bonus amount so worked out at £5,600. That is a lot to wager for sure, and I ended up wishing I had deposited a little bit more when I quickly lost half of my balance betting £1 a spin. The problem of course is that the smaller your balance gets the less you can really afford to risk without the fear of going bust, and clearing nearly six grand of wagering is basically impossible if you are betting 10p a spin or something ridiculous like that.
In the end I felt I had no choice but to play some blackjack at £5 per hand to see if I could build my balance back up after it fell below £50 for the first time, but things did not go well. I was pleased to find they had Microgamings Classic Blackjack which is one of the highest RTP variants of Blackjack around, but it didn’t help me on this occasion.
