RescueBet also offers new joiners a 100% bonus to help kickstart a player’s gaming experience.

Online casino slots have the advantage of providing a user with more privacy and anonymity while playing when compared to a land-based casino, riddled with nosy onlookers. And privacy can be an important sticking point when it comes to gambling. The user has full control to choose games as per their personal choice and can start and end any game whenever they want.

RescueBet’s selection of online slot games covers a variety of themes With a selection of online slot games to choose from online, users are spoilt for choice. They can try their hand at a variety of slot game options from fruit machines, classic slots, video slots and casino slots that are easily accessed from a mobile device.

Users get the chance to take advantage of the periodic bonuses and generous loyalty point system to up their chances of taking home a big jackpot.

It’s been observed that online slot machine games have a 10-15% higher payout in comparison to that of traditional land-based slots.

Players must also take advantage of the bonus games that are featured within the slots, each allowing players to increase their winnings. If players are able to win these featured games and collect enough wild symbols during their slot games, they might have a shot at winning the progressive jackpot, which gets larger every time the game is played by any user until someone wins. And the next winner could easily be you.

So, How’s The Rebate Works?

RescueBet now offers up to 13% losses rebate on all slot games per week. Every week, RescueBet calculates the user’s slot game losses using a formula and then credits 13% of the losses back to the user’s rebate wallet. Players can use these extra funds to chase those lucky spins or wager in a different room. The 13% losses rebate introduced by RescueBet is aimed at helping users maximize their profits responsibly. Every time a member transfers funds from their rebate wallet to their game provider wallet, there is a wagering requirement that must be met.

A user must meet a 30x wagering requirement before a member can transfer the funds to their main wallet. The user will have to wager the combined amount of their deposit and bonus 30 times over before they can withdraw any of the winnings. RescueBet believes that a loss rebate would be more valuable to their members rather than a high rollover requirement and would encourage a healthier partnership practice. This promotes responsible betting practices where users can use these extra funds to even win at additional engagements of the site.
