1. ## Dumb Bonus Noob Question

Hypothetical question say you get your offered a 20% free play on a \$1000 deposit by A+ rated sports and it happens to be equal \$200, if you win at even odds you'd win \$200 (presuming that fits within their allowed maximum)
so you if you win you have \$400, your \$200 free play and the \$200 in winnings. If you loose your bet, do you just get to keep the \$200 they initially gave you? Then you have to meet roll over etc

I know this probably differs from shop to shop, but wondering if this is the standard that you get to keep the initial amount of your free play win or lose?

Thanks

2. A freeplay isn't included in the winnings. Say your \$200 freeplay is wagered on team A @ +100 and it wins. Then you receive \$200 not \$400
Say the rollover is 4x You calculate your deposit which is 1000 + freeplay 200 = 1200 x 4 =4800 rollover.

3. And if it loses you get nothing, except perhaps the rollover

4. Also want to add if you push on your free play at some books this is a loss. You will want to check with the book beforehand to make sure. Also if you play a parlay with the freeplay and win more than the freeplay amount your rollover is calculated on which ever is the higher of the two.

To answer your question, it's quite to the contrary. As others have already mentioned, you do not get to keep the FP win OR lose, only the winnings (if any) derived from the FP bet(s). It's understandable you weren't aware of this, but I'm very confused why you would ever think you get to keep the \$200 FP if you placed a bet with it and lost.

I thought I read this on the terms of one of the books for a new player sign up bonus.

I am new to the whole deal so had thought it was just a promotion where they give you say \$100 as a bonus with roll over then you bet the "free" \$100 whatever the winnings + the \$100 fp they gave u became your bonus and roll over and if you lost its just the \$100 plus roll over.

Just trying to grow a bankroll, Thanks for the responses
