The bonus funds can be converted into real money by playing in eligible Vegas games. Depending on the terms of the bonus, this can be based on earning redemption points in Vegas games, or placing the required number of Vegas bets.
A Vegas Instant Bonus is awarded for use on specified eligible Vegas games, and can be converted into real money through play in those games. When you receive or accept a Vegas Instant Bonus, you will have a pre-determined amount of time to use it and meet the requirements before it expires.
To convert a Vegas Instant Bonus to real money, a redemption point earning requirement must be met. Redemption points are earned by simply playing eligible games, and different games award different amounts of points. Click here for more on how to earn redemption points playing each Vegas game.
The number of redemption points you need to earn to convert a Vegas Instant Bonus to real money will be displayed when the bonus is offered, on the tables of eligible Vegas games, and the information will be available to view on the web, desktop client or mobile app via the ‘My Stars’ menu.
You’ll also find additional details there, such as eligible games, expiry dates and the options to ‘surrender’ (give up) your bonus or ‘pause’ it. Pausing your current bonus will remove it from the available balance in the eligible games, and further wagering will not count towards redemption. You can choose to ‘resume’ a paused bonus at any time up to expiry.
You can only use one Vegas Instant Bonus at any one time in an eligible game. If you have multiple Vegas Instant Bonuses available for use in a particular game, each bonus will be added to the available balance as soon as you have cleared the bonus by earning the set number of redemption points, you have surrendered or paused the bonus, or you have used all bonus funds. You can manage the order in which multiple bonuses become available for use via the ‘My Stars’ menu, as described above.
If a Vegas Instant Bonus is available for use in a game, the available game balance will display the combined total of your real money balance, plus the highest priority Vegas Instant Bonus available. When placing a wager, funds will be taken from the currently-available Vegas Instant Bonus balance first, and from your real money balance second.
After each betting round concludes, the balance of any Vegas Instant Bonus in use will increase or decrease based on the outcome of your wager. If the Vegas Instant Bonus balance falls below the bet you wish to place, the remainder of the balance will be combined with any real money funds available to make the bet.
Once you have earned the number of redemption points needed to clear the bonus, any remaining bonus balance will be converted to real money and added to your real money balance.
The rate at which redemption points are earned varies depending on which Vegas game you choose to play, meaning that the total volume of Vegas wagering required to clear your bonus may increase or decrease. Click here for a full outline of how redemption points are earned per game type.
Certain promotions may offer you the opportunity to purchase a Vegas Instant Bonus for real money. These are typically called percentage bonuses, e.g. ‘100% bonus’. This type of promotion will convert the real money funds you use to purchase the bonus into a higher value Vegas Instant Bonus, increasing the balance you have available to play with in eligible real money games. As with regular Vegas Instant Bonuses, you will need to earn a required number of redemption points in order to convert the Vegas Instant Bonus back into real money funds. One difference is that, where Vegas Instant Bonuses have been purchased with real money, if you should choose to give up your bonus before meeting the requirements (by choosing the ‘surrender’ option), some funds - the ‘surrender value’ - may be refunded as real money to your account. The surrender value is calculated as the original purchase amount of your bonus minus any losses from the original issued Vegas Instant Bonus amount. The maximum surrender value of the bonus is the original purchase amount.
