Admiral Casino Guide
Reading Time: 5 Minutes
Admiral Casino are a casino who run regular offers
Most offers are email invite only
Some are worth doing, because of low wagering and nice EV. Many are not worth doing
Admiral Casino has a unique approach to wagering that you won't have experienced with other casinos
This guide aims to allow you to understand how to approach an Admiral offer
Why Are Admiral Different?
On the free spins welcome offer and the reloads offers (at least the ones that are worth doing), you need to wager your free spin winnings x1.
Unlike other casinos, Admiral lock away your winnings. They force you to wager these winnings with CASH before you can withdraw.
Does this make the offers bad?
No, the value is actually exactly the same as if you received bonus funds that needed wagering x1.
After playing your free spins, the winnings will be locked away and you won’t be able to use them.
To complete the wagering you would deposit £10. Then wager the amount you have in bonus funds 1x on a slot like Starburst.
When you open the slot you will only see your cash balance. When this wagering is complete the bonus funds will turn to cash and you can withdraw.
The bonus is released in increments of £10.
If you had more than £10 in bonus funds you would still only need £10 cash to complete wagering.
In these cases, once you complete £10 of wagering, you would see £10 of cash added to your account, and so on.
The Welcome Offer
Admiral Casino currently offers 40 free spins with 1x wagering to new customers.
Check out our guide on the Welcome Offers page for full details.
Typical Reload Offers
This is typical of the offer that you want to see. 10 Free spins worth 20p each, with only x1 wagering requirements.
The free spins are normally worth 20p each. This would typically have an EV of around £1.80 (or £3.60 for 20 free spins).
This offer looks like the above. But, when you look at the T&Cs, you’ll see it actually comes with high wagering (often 40x wagering).
You would have to complete this wagering with your own cash.
If you won £2 from the free spins, you would need to wager £80 of your own money on slots to unlock the winnings. This would be high risk and -EV.
Looking for the x1 wagering in the terms is the key to telling if an offer is good or bad.
Another type of offer that Admiral send out is a deposit match.
This is even worse than a standard high risk offer!
You would need to wager £250 of your own money to release a £10 cash bonus. The EV would be extremely low and there is a high chance of losing money. Te title of ‘The Ugly’ is well deserved!
How To Complete A 1x Wagering Offer
After you have checked the offer, and you are sure its with x1 wagering, click ‘Play Now’
This will take you to the slot after you have logged in and will pop up ‘You have received 10 free spins, use now’
Play through your free spins. You can usually press the auto button which will automatically play them out. Make a note of how much your spins have won
Deposit £10 and open a slot recommended on the slots catalogue. (Starburst would be my personal pick due to its low variance and good rtp) Play through the same amount you had won from the free spins
Your bonus balance will now have been converted to cash
Withdraw your balance and you are done!
Slots are always recommended for offers at Admiral as table games do not offer 100% contributions towards wagering.
Slots 100% (£1 of every £1 wagered counts towards wagering)
Roulette 20% (20p of every £1 wagered counts towards wagering)
Blackjack 10% (10p of every £1 wagered counts towards wagering)
Live Games are excluded from wagering
Refer a Friend Scheme – Avoid
Admiral offer a refer a friend scheme which may look very generous at first glance. They offer £50 for each member you refer. This sounds great but it actually needs £1750 of wagering in cash to convert the bonus into cash!
