ThePogg launches bonus ratings and reviews service

Friday, April 21, 2017

Online casino portal,, has launched a casino welcome bonus ratings and reviews service, which features detailed analysis and value simulations to help players decide if a bonus is right for them.

The project, which was undertaken with BeatingBonuses, addresses the difficulties players often have when it comes to assessing online casino bonuses.

ThePogg simulated over 350 welcome bonuses – with almost 200 reports still to be published – to determine the value of each bonus for low rollers, mid rollers, high rollers and super high rollers.

These figures are then provided so players can get an accurate assessment of how good a bonus is for them, once all of the terms and conditions and their own playing style is taken into consideration.

“Several years ago, the owner of BeatingBonuses coded a tool to allow players to assess the value of bonuses,” Duncan Garvie, manager and ADR official for ThePogg, told

“This tool worked by taking specific criteria entered by the user – such as deposit size, bonus size, wagering requirement, bet size and game selection – and then simulating play of the bonus with these specifications.

“By playing the same bonus over and over again and averaging the results, it is possible to determine what the expected outcome is for the player. In the case of our bonus reviewing, we repeat each bonus 10 million times for each roller category.”

Garvie added: “Every player wants to feel like they’re getting great value for money when they sign-up to play with a casino, but there’s no easy or intuitive way for a player to assess all the different rules. Is a non-redeemable bonus with a 30x wagering requirement better than a cashable bonus with a 50x wagering requirement? There is no easy way for players to know.

“Through this type of mathematically-based simulation, players now have a great resource to help them understand how different rules impact the value of a bonus or, if they don’t want to go that far, to simply look and see which casinos offer top value bonuses for their style of play.”

Totally Gaming says: All players are in search of great value for money, but it’s often difficult to assess online casinos’ unique rules. ThePogg’s new bonus ratings and reviews service is an easy-to-use platform that puts people in the know and helps them to find the best bonuses to suit their individual playing style.
