Offer Smashing With A Small Bankroll (£100-£250)
Reading Time: 10 minutes
We are often asked whether you can start casino offers with as little as £100-£250.
The answer is yes, but only with the right guidance and a strict approach.
This guide will explain exactly how to do it!
Approach And Mindset
Be Patient. You may have seen members posting some amazing results. You can achieve this too, but it won’t happen overnight. Start slow, and as your bankroll grows, you can complete more offers, and your profits will increase.
Trust the EV: over the long term, our total EV and profit should be closely related. But, in the short term they can vary. So don't be disheartened if your profits are below your EV.
Don't Focus On Profit. Whilst new, try not to worry about how much profit you are making. Focus on working through the offers, building up your EV, and learning about all the different types of offer.
Let Your Bankroll Grow. Initially you will be focused only on the lowest risk offers. But, as your profits grow, let your bankroll increase. This will allow you to take on the bigger offers. With more offers available, your potential to profit will increase.
Money You Can Afford To Lose: By following this guide, you have a great chance of making a profit. But we can't make any guarantees. So, your bankroll should be money that you could afford to lose in a worst case scenario. For instance this could be £100 of matched betting profit that you set aside.
Every offer on Team Casino comes with a bankroll recommendation. This is the number next to the Piggy Bank symbol.
Only do an offer if you have at least as much bankroll as our offer guidance recommends. If not, you may be taking too much of a risk.
Team Casino has a Bankroll Filter. This allows you to see exactly which offers you have a suitable bankroll for. You'll find this in the filters section at the top of the welcome offer and reload offers pages.
With a small bankroll, you must use small stake sizes. Otherwise you will be taking too much risk.
Slots: “Max Lines Min Stakes”. Some slots allow us to adjust the number of lines on the slot. But, we should always leave this set to the maximum. We should then use the smallest bet allowed per line (usually 1p per line). Most slots have 10, 20, or 25 lines, meaning we should be using 10p, 20p or 25p spins.
Blackjack: stick to doing £1 per hand. Some blackjack games allow you to play more than one hand at once (some up to 5). Doing this increases our variance, so with a small bankroll, stick to playing one hand, or at the most two, at a time.
Roulette: stick to £1 bets on Red or Black
Low Risk Welcome Offers (About £500 EV)
Having read the Getting Started guides, we can start our first offers. Start with the offers at the top of the welcome offers page, then work your way down the list.
Follow our recommendations to only do offers you have a suitable bankroll for.
Setting the bankroll filter to 100 will show about 50 offers, with an EV of about £300.
By setting it to 200 you should have nearer 60 offers available with EV of over £500.
By completing these offers, you should have achieved a nice profit. Your bankroll will be starting to grow.
You should start with the welcome offers.
But, you don’t need to complete them all before looking at reload offers.
First completing the Getting Started and Gamesy welcome offers.
Then, as you work through the free spin and bonus wagering offers, you can start to consider reload offers.
Like with the welcome offers, set the bankroll filter to see exactly which reload offers you can complete. If you have enough bankroll, and understand our instructions, you can complete the offer.
At first, focus on the Daily Free Games (£20+ EV/week) and Low Risk Reload Offers (£50-£100 EV per week).
Before starting these offers, you should read our Introduction To Reload Offers Guide.
Your First £1000 EV
We recommend that you set a target of making your first £1000 EV.
This is a brilliant goal to aim for, and will give you the chance to fully experience casino offers before deciding whether they are right for you.
By making £500+ EV from welcome offers, and £50-£100 EV per week from reloads, you could reach that target in about 8-10 weeks.
In that time, you'll learn lots, and should build your bankroll by making lots of profit.
Sports Offers To Build Bankroll
If you do get off to a slow start, then we would recommend using matched betting to supplement your profits and grow your bankroll.
