Yeti Casino goes against the grain with a unique welcome bonus. Rather than handing out the oft-seen matched deposit offer, Yeti’s team have opted to give new players a 100% refund bonus worth up to £111. Essentially, this bonus provides 100% cashback on funds lost from your first deposit. An additional 100 free spins for Book of Dead are on the cards, too – with 23 awarded upon signing up and the remaining 77 after depositing £10 or more.
As always, you’ll need to satisfy some tedious terms and conditions. For starters, the offer solely applies to your first deposit. This means you’ll only receive a refund on money lost directly from your initial transfer, with all subsequent deposits excluded. And, speaking of exclusions — Neteller and Skrill are ineligible for this promotion. However, you can deposit with PayPal, Trustly, MuchBetter, of, of course, your debit card. That said, be aware that minimum deposits via Trustly are set at £25, which is £15 above the standard limit.
Most importantly, you must meet 60x wagering requirements before requesting a withdrawal of funds while the new customer bonus is active. Considering this bonus is more of a cashback offer for losing players rather than a bonus for all newcomers – I’m a little taken aback by the playthrough requirements. Even bettors who deposit just £10 will need to wager £600 within 30 days — pushing those on a budget into uncomfortable territory by effectively asking new players to spend a truck-load of cash within a short period of time.
I’d be inclined to recommend 10Bet Casino’s 50% match bonus up to £50 over this deal. That offer comes with 40x wagering requirements, 50 extra free spins, and rewards all new players – regardless of whether the first deposit is lost.
All-in-all, the Yeti Casino welcome bonus is not for the faint of heart. Experienced bettors on a high bankroll will love the extra protection provided by the cashback part of the deal – but it may not be best suited to the more casual newcomer.
