A no sticky bonus allows you to renounce the bonus without having fulfilled the playthrough requirement and still keep the winnings you have won with your own deposit. This gives you an extra chance to take home a win that you might otherwise have lost if you had completed the wagering requirement. Therefore, a no sticky bonus – or non sticky bonus, lifeline bonus or parachute bonus, as they are also called – is generally more valuable than a sticky bonus. And you can get them at casinos here in Denmark.
What is the difference between a no sticky bonus and a sticky bonus?
If a bonus is non-sticky, you can withdraw your own deposit and all winnings from it without having fulfilled the bonus conditions, as long as you simply give up the bonus. This gives you the advantage that you can increase your winnings if you have won more than you have lost before you have played through the required amount to play your bonus freely. If, on the other hand, you lose your own deposit, your bonus gives you another chance to win the lost home again – and of course more than that, if you’re lucky. So in any case you are better off with a no sticky bonus than you are without a bonus.
With a sticky bonus, you are not allowed to withdraw your winnings until the bonus conditions are met. In some cases, you are allowed to withdraw your own deposit if you have won, but unless you have met the turnover requirement, both winnings and bonus are lost if you withdraw too early. You can of course still win, but you must withdraw your winnings only after you have played the bonus for free.
The term only makes sense in connection with deposit bonuses. It therefore does not make sense to talk about a no sticky bonus without a deposit or with no deposit free spins, as there is no deposit that you can withdraw “before time”. Of course, you may not withdraw winnings from a free bonus or free spins until you have completed the playthrough requirement.
No sticky bonus Denmark
In Denmark, you can get no sticky bonuses at a few of the best casinos, and incredibly, it includes Denmark’s largest online casino bonus.
LeoVegas offers a welcome bonus of DKK 1,000, which is no sticky. You can therefore withdraw your winnings without meeting the wagering requirement, and even if you lose your bonus by doing so, you can keep both your deposit and everything you have won. The bonus package consists of 50 Free Spins without deposit and turnover requirements and a DKK 1,000 cash bonus.
- Create an account and deposit a minimum of DKK 100 and get a 100% bonus up to DKK 1,000.
- Play through your deposit 10 times to trigger the bonus
- The bonus can now be withdrawn without further play
Your deposit must be played through 10 times before you get your bonus, but if you withdraw before that, you only lose your bonus – it is your parachute in the so-called “parachute bonus”. The combination of free spins with no wagering requirements, a bonus percentage of 100% and a wagering requirement of only 10 times the bonus, undoubtedly makes this one of the most attractive welcome packages.
- More casinos with non sticky bonus
- Other casinos in Denmark also offer a non sticky welcome bonus.
Mr Green has a welcome package which contains both 50 no deposit Free Spins, a 100% deposit bonus up to DKK 1,000. The bonus must be played through 10 times on slot machines before you can withdraw, but your bonus game only starts after you possibly have lost your own deposit. There are both advantages and disadvantages to this.
If you win immediately after depositing, your cash balance grows while your bonus balance remains untouched. At this point, you can choose to cash out your entire cash balance, which means you lose your bonus. But if you have just won a big prize, this can easily be advantageous.
If, on the other hand, you lose the money on your cash balance, you now have your entire bonus balance, which now gives you an extra chance to win. Before you can withdraw winnings from your bonus balance, you must have played through the bonus 10 times, but if you meet this requirement, all winnings from here will be transferred to your cash balance, and you are free to withdraw them.
So while this way of dealing with bonus games means that your bonus game only counts once you’ve lost your bonus and thus you have to wager more before you can cash out, it also gives you an extra chance to cash out a big win without that you need to worry about the turnover requirement at all.
Mr Green gives 50 free spins to Book of Dead as soon as you open an account. When you make your first deposit of between DKK 75 and 1,000, you get a 100% bonus. All for a deposit, which need not be greater than DKK 75.
Flexi Bonus is a semi-sticky bonus
BetWay has invented their own version of a semi-sticky bonus which they call the Flexi Bonus. With a playthrough requirement of only 10 times their 100% bonus of between DKK 200 and DKK 1,000, this bonus is definitely worth considering.
When you receive a bonus, your balance is divided into a cash balance and a bonus balance. Each time they play a game, the money is taken proportionally from the two balances and winnings are awarded in the same way. If you have received a 100% bonus, 50% of your bet is thus paid from the cash balance, while 50% is deducted from the bonus balance, and if you win, the winnings are also divided equally between the two balances. If your cash balance, on the other hand, is greater than the balance – e.g. because you deposit money without a bonus, or you have received their 25% bonus on the second deposit – more is now deducted from the cash balance (e.g. 80% with a 25% bonus), and it is also the cash balance that receives the largest share of the gain.
You can withdraw your entire cash balance at any time, incl. cash winnings, by renouncing the bonus balance, which contains the bonus winnings. The question is of course whether you want to do it with a playthrough requirement of only 10 times the bonus, but the choice is yours.
Bonus in chunks at Videoslots
You will find another variant at Videoslots. Here there is no turnover requirement on the bonus, but rather on the deposit which triggers the bonus. You receive your 100% bonus of up to DKK 1,000 in chunks of 10% as you meet the turnover requirement of 10 times the deposit. If you e.g. deposit DKK 1,000, you must therefore play for DKK 1,000 to get the first 10% of the bonus, which amounts to DKK 100, transferred to the cash balance. The risk is, of course, that you will never get your entire bonus because you have lost your money before the bonus has been played freely. On the other hand, you can withdraw your cash balance at any time when it is advantageous for you. When you withdraw, as with other no sticky bonuses, you must waive the remainder of your bonus balance.
