The spins are really a tiny extra sweetener though, being worth a grand total of just £10 and all. The 100% match bonus is clearly the real “meat” on this deal, and I figured a starting balance of £400 with £7,500 to bet should be a relatively straightforward task. I’d spotted that Dead or Alive was on the zero percent contribution percentage list, which always annoys me but is somewhat common these days, so I was prepared to see that. I would add that it doesn’t seem Dead or Alive 2 has made it onto that list as of today, but I’d double check if your wagering is going down if you decide to try playing it!
Instead, I played a bunch of my favourite Play N Go slots, including Energoonz, Reactoonz and Rise of Olympus. These are not subject to the ridiculous 50% contribution percentage that most of the best Microgaming and NetEnt slots are, although I must admit back when I played this bonus I hadn’t even noticed that rule was in place – I probably did play a big chunk of my balance on games that were not contributing fully to the wagering requirement which might well be a major reason why I failed to complete this bonus. I also suspect that the Play N Go slots are set to the lowest possible RTP, considering that they contribute 100% to wagering.
I did get several days play out of this bonus on the whole, though, whilst trying to beat the wagering requirement. Each day when I logged in and played my free spins it topped up my balance a little bit, including a somewhat decent +£30 on day three, but it’s annoying that these spins add to your remaining wagering and it is not possible to leave them until you have finished the deposit match bonus before using them – they expire 24 hours after being added to your account.
If you choose your games to play wisely then this is definitely a worthwhile bonus to try. I probably wouldn’t go for the full £200 if I were to play it again today, but if you have the money spare and like Play N Go then this is possibly one of the fairest ways you will find to get an extra £200 of bets added to your balance free of charge!
