After I placed my first bets with Coral, I got an email offering me a free £5 to use in the casino. But when I read the T&Cs I got really confused, especially with the wagering requirements and stake percentages. Can anyone please explain what I'm supposed to do, or if it's actually worth me doing it at all? I'll post the T&Cs below:

Terms & Conditions:

Offer open to online real money coral.co.uk customers aged 18+ who have received this exclusive email.
Promotion runs for the dates specified in your promotional email.
Strictly one bonus per player.
To redeem the free Casino Bonus, player has to log in to their coral.co.uk account within 48 hours and accept the Bonus.
Any unclaimed bonuses will be removed and not reissued.
The bonus carries 5 times wagering requirement on any winning funds accumulated (example; £10 winnings x 5 = £50) must be met before any further winnings can be withdrawn.
Bonus is valid for 10 days and if wagering has not been completed any winnings along with the bonus shall be removed.
Your remaining wagering requirement can be reviewed on the website by clicking ‘Cash Balance’ at the top of the page. Your remaining wagering will show at the bottom of the balance pop up window.
All casino bonuses have a redemption threshold set to £/€0.50. If/when your bonus balance drops below the set redemption threshold amount your bonus will automatically redeem/close, releasing any accumulated winnings attributed to that bonus.
Please note that only play on the qualifying games on the Casino, Games, Slots Tabs on the Coral website and casino download client will count towards wagering requirements. Play via Bingo, Sportsbook, Poker and Bingo/Poker side games will not contribute to the wagering requirements.
The bonus shall expire three days after acceptance. If wagering has not been completed by then, the entire bonus balance (bonus + winnings) shall be removed.
Withdrawing any funds from any section of your Coral account before completing all of the required wagering attributed to your Casino link bonus will result in your bonus funds and winnings being removed.
Players deemed at the sole discretion of the promoter to be adopting a low risk betting strategy to clear wagering will have the bonus along with any winnings removed. This includes, but is not limited to, betting on red or black.
If a player has an active bonus and wins more than twice the value of the bonus amount, they must stay playing in a game of similar or equal weighting until wagering has been completed. Moving from low weighted games like Blackjack, to high weighted games like slots, after a large win, for the sole purpose of completing wagering requirements, will result in the bonus and any winnings being removed
Please note that you can only wager towards one bonus in the bonus section of your account at a time. Other bonuses can be "stacked". Once you have completed the required wagering towards one bonus, you will then begin wagering towards the next bonus.
If a combination of bets placed in a roulette game amounts to coverage of 67% or more of the Roulette wheel, these bets will not count towards the bonus wagering requirement. This is applicable to all version of roulette on the casino and games tabs online, on downloadable client and on mobile.
Players from the following countries are excluded from all promotions. Albania, Belarus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Georgia, Hungary, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Macedonia, Romania, Russia, Slovakia.

You need to try and wager the £5 bonus through to where you have spent £50 and then you can withdraw it.

I like how they give you a £5 bonus and then think you can get a large win at BlackJack

Hey guys, I have another newbie question about these :-[

This time it's Paddy Power. I have the £5 freebet sitting in my account, but it doesn't show up when I load up the slot games. What am I missing?

In better news, I got one of these on Betfred too, and made £4.40! Not bad for about 20 secs effort :D

No, it's a games freebet. I assumed that meant it was for using in the casino section?

Try the arcade section instead of the casino

Otherwise ask on live chat
