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.
If you are starting casino offers with less than £250, please give this guide a thorough read. It’s full of valuable information!
Money You Can Afford To Lose
Following this guide will give you a strong chance of making a profit. However, casino offers are not risk-free, so this isn’t guaranteed.
You should set aside some money to start casino offers that you could afford to lose in a worst-case scenario.
Big Profits Don’t Happen Straight Away. You may have seen members posting some amazing results. There is no reason why you can’t achieve that, but it won’t happen overnight. Start slowly, and as your bankroll increases, you can complete more offers, so your profit potential grows over time.
Casino offers revolve around Expected Value (EV). EV is the average profit you would expect to make by completing an offer. However this is an average, and our results will vary. Don’t expect to make a profit that exceeds your EV, and if your profit is below your EV, don’t be disheartened. Over the long term our EV and profit should correlate closely, so stay focused on making as much EV as you can.
When first starting, try not to worry about how much profit you are making, and just focus on working through the offers. You should have around £400 in EV to make from the lowest risk welcome offers. These offers are great EV, and most don’t take long to complete, so you could make £20+ EV per hour. After completing these, you might have around £50 per week in reload offer EV, from the Daily Free Games and very low risk reload offers. Your bankroll should start to grow, giving you the flexibility to complete more offers.
As your bankroll grows to over £500, you will have enough bankroll to do most of the welcome offers. You can also start to complete some low risk reload offers. You should have at least £100 of low risk EV available to you every week. Keep building up your total EV and you should soon hit the £1000 mark.
As your bankroll grows to over £1000, you will have a suitable bankroll to do all low risk reload offers. There should be about £150-£200 of EV per week. This depends on how much time you commit, and how many offers you are able to complete.
Bankroll is the amount of money that you have set aside to do casino offers.
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 can find out more about this feature here.
Using the right stake sizes is very important. With a small bankroll, you must use very small stake sizes. Otherwise you will be risking large losses. You should approach this as follows:
Slots: “Max Lines Min Stakes”: all slots have a certain number of paylines. A line is a path from the left reel to the right reel. If you have matching symbols on a path you will win. On some slots, you have the option to adjust the number of lines that you wish to play. We should always use the maximum number of lines, so never change this. What we can change is how much we bet per line. For this, we want to use the minimum bet possible, which is normally 1p times the number of lines of the slot. Most slots have 10, 20, or 25 lines, meaning we should be using 10p, 20p or 25p spins. The exception to this rule comes when we are wagering bonus money – but we will cover this later!
Blackjack: most blackjack games have a minimum stake of £1 per hand, which is what we should use. Some blackjack games will 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 even money bets (being Red or Black, Odd or Even, 1-18 or 19-36). These are the lowest variance options on roulette. Betting on other things, like single numbers, will increase your risk, so avoid this.
Once you £1000+ bankroll, you might consider slowly increasing the stakes, but we discuss that later.
Risk-Free Welcome Offers (About £10 EV)
A casino gives you some kind of reward for signing up, without needing to deposit any of your own money. These can be a good way to get used to using casino sites, doing promotions, and playing casino games. In the Getting Started section of the Welcome Offers, you’ll find the best risk-free offers.
Low Risk Welcome Offers (About £500 EV)
Having read the guides, and completed the risk-free offers, you can start to look at the low risk offers. The welcome offers are ordered so that you start with the lowest risk offers at the top of the page. You then gradually work your way down the page through the different types of offer.
Some welcome offers are only suitable for those with a larger bankroll. Make sure you use our bankroll filter to filter the page to show only offers that are suitable for you.
Setting the bankroll filter to 100 will show about 60 offers, with an EV of about £350. By setting it to 200 you should have nearer 80 offers available with EV of about £500. You will see casino guides on the welcome offers page. It is recommended that you read any guides before completing any offers that follow.
By completing these offers, you should have achieved a nice profit and your bankroll will be starting to grow. As your bankroll grows, you can start to complete the larger offers.
Whilst you should start with the welcome offers, you don’t need to complete them all before looking at reload offers. Reload offers are promotions that are offered to existing customers. Some reload offers won’t be available to you until you have built up your bankroll. However there will be some that you can start to look at quite soon after starting.
Daily Free Games (£20+ EV/week)
Stating the obvious time… Daily Free Games are promotions that are free to play, and are available daily. You have the chance to win prizes, such as free spins, bonuses and cash. These are risk free, so as soon as you have signed up to a casino which offers a Daily Free Game, you can start to do it. You can find a list of all the currently available games in the Daily Free Games section of the reload offers page.
Some daily free games can give you access to new promotions as a prize. These offers might be +EV, but you should avoid these offers, until you have built up your bankroll.
For more information on Daily Games, please see our guide here.
Low Risk Reload Offers (£50-£100 EV/week)
Once you do a reload offer, you may no longer be able to complete the welcome offer. Make sure you have completed the welcome offer for a casino first, before considering moving onto their 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.
Some casinos don’t have a welcome offer that is worth doing – because they are high risk offers. Instead, some have a cashback offer, which you can find in the Cashback Offers section of the welcome offers page. These offers can be very profitable, and they will give you access to the reload offers. However, it can take over a month to receive your cashback, so these aren’t a great way to quickly build your bankroll.
Sports Offers To Build Bankroll
This guide should give you a really strong chance of achieving a profit. However this isn’t guaranteed. If your bankroll were to drop below £100, then we would recommend using matched betting to build up your bankroll.
