What is a Bonus?
A Bonus is a type of reward that can be earned by fulfilling the requirements of a promotion.
When a Bonus is earned , it is applied to your account. You earn cashback by “playing through” the Bonus balance, which will unlock the Bonus balance as cash in accordance with the terms of the promotion.
How do I earn a Bonus?
You can earn a Bonus by fulfilling the requirements of a promotion that offers a Bonus as a reward.
Once you fulfill the requirements of a promotion, the Bonus will be added to your Rewards Details page under the Bonuses tab. The details of how to earn cashback on your bonus can also be found on this page.
Will I earn cashback on any wagers placed before a Bonus is active?
No. A Bonus must be active at the time the wager is placed in order to be eligible to earn cashback.
Can I use my Bonus to place a bet?
No. Only cash may be used to place a bet. You will earn cashback as you play through your Bonus in accordance with the terms and conditions of the promotion (see detailed explanation of “cashback” below).
What does cashback mean?
Cashback is the mechanism by which you can turn your Bonus balance into cash. It is represented by a percentage, which indicates the amount of wagering activity required.
For example, a $10 Bonus with a 5% cashback rate would require the patron to wager $200 cash in order to earn the full $10 cashback pursuant to this Bonus. A Bonus will unlock progressively, meaning that for every qualifying wager that a patron places, a portion of the Bonus will unlock as cash in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Bonus. See Example 1 below.
5% cashback: A patron has a $1,000 Bonus that offers 5% cashback. This means the patron will earn 5% cashback on every qualifying wager until the $1,000 Bonus is exhausted or it expires.
Are there minimum bet requirements to earn cashback?
No, there are no minimum bet requirements to earn cashback. However, the minimum amount of cashback you can unlock at any given time is $0.01 and qualifying cashback amounts are rounded to the nearest cent. For example, if you have 1% cashback promotion, a $0.25 bet will round down to $0.00 in cashback and a $0.50 bet will round up to $0.01 in cashback.
Can I earn cashback on multiple Bonuses at a time?
No. While you may have multiple Bonuses available, only one Bonus may be active to earn cashback at a time.
If the amount of a wager exceeds the amount needed to unlock the full cashback amount associated with a particular Bonus, can the balance of the wager be applied against my next available Bonus?
No. Each wager will only unlock cashback in respect to a single, active Bonus, even if the amount of the wager exceeds the amount required to earn the maximum amount of cashback of that Bonus.
If I have multiple active Bonuses, which one do I earn cashback on first?
You earn cashback in the order the Bonuses became active.
Do all cash bets qualify for earning cashback?
For patrons in Colorado, Indiana, Iowa or New Jersey, only cash bets with odds of greater than -300 will unlock cashback from a Bonus. For patrons in Ontario, only cash bets with odds of greater than -200 will unlock cashback from a Bonus. For example, a cash bet with odds of -500 would not earn cashback whereas a cash bet with odds of +200 would earn cashback.
Will I earn cashback as soon as I place a bet or do I need to wait for that bet to settle?
If you place a bet that qualifies to earn cashback (see "Do all cash bets qualify for earning cashback?" above) the applicable cashback will be earned as soon as the bet is placed. If cashback has been earned on a bet and that bet is subsequently voided, results in "no action", or is not settled as a win, loss or push*, the cashback earned on the bet will be converted back into your Bonus if that Bonus is still active (see Example 2 below). If there are insufficient cash funds in your account to convert the cashback back to Bonus balance (see Example 3 below) or if Bonus has expired, and this results in a negative cash balance in your account, your account will be temporarily suspended pending rectification of such negative account balance.
* Although a push is deemed "no action" under theScore Bet House Rules, cashback earned on this wager will not be converted back into your Bonus.
Rolling back voided, "no action" or unsettled bet to Bonus balance: A patron earned $2 cashback from a Bonus that offered 5% cashback by placing a $40 bet. The $40 bet results in "no action" because the event is cancelled.
Can I cash out a bet that was used to earn cashback?
Yes, you can cash out a bet that was used to earn cashback (if cash out is available on that bet). However, if you choose to cash out, the cashback earned on the original bet will be converted back into your Bonus balance if the Bonus is still active (see Example 3 below). For clarity - your Bonus is not forfeited; you will be able to earn cashback with subsequent wagers, provided the Bonus is still active (i.e. has not yet expired or been fully used) . If you choose to cash out a bet that was used to earn cashback and the applicable Bonus is no longer active (i.e. has expired or been fully used), the cashback earned on the original bet will be forfeited.
Rolling back cashback to Bonus balance: A patron earned $1 cashback from a Bonus that offered 5% cashback by placing a $20 bet. They wish to cash out that $20 wager prior to the bet being settled for $16.
Please note that if there are insufficient cash funds in your account to convert the cashback back to the Bonus balance, cash out will not be available for that bet.
Do Bonuses expire?
Yes, Bonuses can expire. The expiration date will be noted on the Reward Details page in the app and will be outlined in the Promotion Terms and Conditions.
What if a Bonus expires before I can earn the full amount of cashback associated with that Bonus?
If a Bonus expires before you earn the full amount of the cashback associated with that Bonus, any cashback that has been earned up until that point will remain in your cash balance. Any remaining Bonus balance will be forfeited upon expiration of the Bonus and will no longer be eligible to earn as cashback.
You can view the status of any used, partially used or expired Bonuses on the History tab of the Reward Details page.
