If you link your email address to your account, you will be able to restore access to your account if you forget your username or password and also to keep up to date with all the latest news about our offers and promotions. You can always get a bonus for your 2nd-4th deposits, regardless of whether you have received the previous deposit bonus or not. The bonus for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th deposits is only credited if the amount for each of these deposits is greater or equal to the previous deposit amount. If the subsequent deposit is less than the previous one, you will be able to wager the bonus when the amount of subsequent deposits reaches or exceeds the amount of the previous one. To get bonuses, you need to give your consent by enabling the function "Take part in bonus offers" in My Account. All deposit bonuses must be redeemed by wagering the deposit amount 40 times within 30 days after the deposit is made. Once the validity period of a bonus has expired or it is canceled the bonus is deemed to be lost. If you make a deposit while the previous deposit bonus is still being redeemed, the next deposit bonus will not be awarded. So, for example, if the First Deposit Bonus has not been redeemed, the Second Deposit Bonus will only be awarded after all the terms of the First Deposit Bonus have been met. To be eligible for the deposit bonuses, you need to make the minimum deposit of at least 5 mBTC (or equivalent in another currency). The bonus is deemed to have been wagered only after all the bets for the specified amount have been settled.
