  • E.g. placing at least one bet on any game that has a weighting of 25% or less towards wagering, the resulting win is 100% more than the corresponding stake and move your original stake and winnings to a game weighted at 100% in order to meet wagering requirements.
  • (e)  Low risk Roulette bets. ANY outside bet spread combination on Roulette games covering 25 or more (67%) of the 37 unique number spots on the table.
