*Bonus to Cash ratio*(BCR) known as Freedom Bonus
Bonus to Cash ratio (BCR) is the percentage split between your total balance and the current cash balance verses your current bonus balance.
£10 Cash Balance and £10 Bonus balance would be a 50% / 50% BCR
£10 Cash plus £10 Bonus = £20 total balance (50% made up of cash and 50% made up of bonus)
£30 Cash Balance and £10 Bonus balance would be a 75% / 25% BCR
£30 Cash plus £10 Bonus = £40 total balance (75% made up of cash and 25% made up of bonus)
The funds to place your bet will come from the Cash and Bonus Balance based on the BCR ratio at the time of the bet being placed. Winnings are also allocated back to the Bonus and cash balance in the same ratio as they were placed.
Using example 1 above - You place a £10 bet, £5 will come from your cash balance and £5 from your bonus balance. If your bet wins and returns £20, £10 will go into your cash balance and £10 will go into your bonus balance
Using example 2 above - You place a £10 bet, £7.50 will come from your cash balance and £2.50 from your bonus balance. If your bet wins and returns £20, £15 will go into your cash balance and £5 will go into your bonus balance
- If you only use bonus to place a bet your Bonus to Cash ratio (BCR) will be 100%, therefore all of your wagering and winnings will be debited/ credited from your bonus balance.
- Any progressive jackpot wins are automatically added to your cash balance.
- Play at certain games will contribute a different percentage towards the wagering requirement.
- Any additional bonuses allocated will have wagering requirements that will be added to any existing wagering requirements outstanding on your bonus balance.
Bonus Abuse and Bonus Fraud
We offer our valued customers promotions and bonuses to reward them. We have a zero tolerance policy on bonus abuse and bonus related fraudulent activity on accounts. If any bonus abuse or bonus related fraudulent activity is suspected, we reserve the right to stop any further bonuses, promotions and/or offers and remove winnings from these and/or linked accounts.
What constitutes bonus abuse or bonus related fraudulent activity shall be at the sole discretion of Hippodrome Online Casino. Examples of bonus abuse may include, but not be limited to:
- Using more than one account
- Wagering the bonus money on excluded games
- Bonus stacking (where multiple deposits to claim multiple bonuses, before original bonus wagering requirements are met)
- Two tier betting (where large bets are placed on high variance outcomes, before switching to normal variance outcomes to clear wagering requirements)
- Multiple account strategy / proxy account strategy
- Using a VPN or masking IP address
- Affiliate CPA or revenue share abuse
- Decreasing your stake amount by 60% or more after a large win (5x value of your last deposit or more) for the purpose of clearing wagering requirements while a bonus is still active. E.g. Winning $/£/€100 on any spin including a double up and reducing your stake amount to $/£/€50 or less.
- Moving from a low weighted game (25% wagering contribution or less) to a higher weighted contribution game (70% or more) after large wins for the purpose of clearing wagering requirements.
- You place at least one bet on any game that has a weighting of 20% or less towards wagering, the resulting win is 100% more than the corresponding stake and you move your original stake and winnings to a game weighted at 100% in order to meet wagering requirements.
- For example but not limited to placing bets on roulette and then after a win moving your game play to slots to clear wagering.
When playing with a no-deposit bonus in your account, if you bet more than 10% of the bonus amount in a single bet, spin or round, your bonus and winnings may be voided.
