Lots of the terms do still suck, but everything is relative when the bonus funds effectively count as a second chance after losing your deposit, and the bonus free spins are then essentially a “third” chance. Disappointingly though, you do only get 20 free NetEnt spins this time around rather than the 50 you got for your first deposit match bonus, and anything you win whilst using them above a maximum of 100 will be removed from your balance when you choose to make a withdrawal too.
I decided to play some Legacy of Egypt, not the greatest choice when playing with such a small balance because of the minimum 30p per spin rule, but it paid off as it often does when I got one of those bonus rounds that just seems to go on and on forever with two or three pyramids dropping every five seconds. The whole thing was bittersweet though as it was literally my first spin that broke into my bonus funds which got me that bonus round – just one spin earlier and I could have withdrawn my balance and just had a shot at the 3rd deposit bonus instead!
Thankfully though, my measly £4 of bonus funds gave a tiny wagering requirement which I quickly cleared and made my first withdrawal from SpinRider…. I decided to drop the whole lot back in for my third deposit bonus bonus a day later when I received the funds back to my debit card, but that’s a story for another day 😊
