theScore Bet Bonuses
What is a Bonus?
theScore Bet Bonuses are a type of reward that can be earned by fulfilling the requirements of a promotion. When a Bonus is earned and opted into (if required), it is applied to your account, though the Bonus balance is not playable. Your Bonus balance can be unlocked by playing through the Bonus, which will unlock the Bonus balance as cash.
How do I earn a Bonus?
You can earn a Bonus by fulfilling the requirements of a promotion that offers Bonuses as a reward. (theScore Bet currently offers two types of rewards: free bets and Bonuses.)
Once you fulfill the requirements of a promotion, you may need to opt in to the Bonus. If the Bonus does not require opt in, upon fulfilling the requirements of the promotion it will immediately become active.
How do I opt in to a Bonus?
Some promotions require patrons to opt in, which means that after you fulfill the promotion requirements, you will have to opt in to the Bonus before any of your wagers starts to play through the Bonus balance to unlock it as cash.
When you have a Bonus requiring opt-in, it will show up in your account under Account > Bonus Details > Available Bonuses. Tapping “Opt In” will opt you in to the Bonus.
Note that once you have opted into a promotion once, any subsequent rewards earned from that promotion will not need to be opted into and can be found in the Reward Details > Active Bonuses section upon fulfilment of the promotion reward.
Will any wagers placed while a Bonus is awaiting opt in retroactively count toward playthrough to unlock to cash?
No. Only active Bonuses will accrue playthrough that will unlock any Bonus balance to cash. Bonuses are only active once they have been opted in to, should opt in be required.
I changed my mind and don’t want a particular Bonus. Can I opt out?
Yes, you can opt out of any active Bonuses provided you have not yet begun playing through it. Once a Bonus has begun playthrough, it cannot be opted out of.
If you opt out of a Bonus earned from a particular promotion, you will still be able to earn the reward from that promotion again if the promotion terms allow it; opting out of a Bonus does not preclude a patron from earning subsequent Bonuses from that promotion.
Can I use my Bonus to place a bet?
No. Only cash may be used to place bets, but your Bonus will unlock as cash as you play through it.
i.e. you have $100 cash and $50 Bonus. You can place a bet up to $100, but when you do, your $50 Bonus will play through and unlock accordingly. (See playthrough explanations below.)
What does playthrough mean?
Playthrough is an expression of the amount a patron needs to wager to unlock the Bonus as cash.
The wagering requirement to unlock a Bonus to cash is a multiple of the Bonus value (e.g. 1x, 10x, 25x). For example, a $10 Bonus with a 10x playthrough would require the patron to wager $100 cash (10x$10) in order to unlock the entirety of the Bonus. A Bonus will unlock progressively; for every wager a patron places, a portion of the Bonus will unlock to cash as per the playthrough requirements (Example 1, 2).
1. 10x playthrough: A patron has a $10 Bonus with a 10x playthrough. This means for every $10 a patron wagers of their cash balance, they will unlock $1 of their Bonus as cash.
| 2. 1x playthrough: A patron has a $100 Bonus with a 1x playthrough. This means for every $1 a patron wagers of their cash balance, they will unlock $1 of their Bonus as cash.
Can I play through multiple Bonuses at a time?
While you may have multiple available Bonuses, only one Bonus is permitted playthrough at a time. Any wager will only be considered for playthrough of a single Bonus, even if multiple Bonuses are available.
If I have multiple active Bonuses, what determines the order they are played through?
Bonuses are played through in the order they were awarded/opted into (Example 3).
3. Determining playthrough order: A patron has a Bonus that was credited to their account on January 1 (Bonus A). They fulfill the criteria of a different promotion on January 2, but the Bonus requires opt in, which they do not do until January 5 (Bonus B). The patron fulfills yet another promotion on January 3, which does not require opt in, so it is made active in their account upon fulfillment (Bonus C).
The order of playthrough is as follows:
Bonus C will be played through before Bonus B because while the promotional criteria of Bonus B was fulfilled first, it was not opted into until after Bonus C had been earned.
Do all cash bets qualify for playthrough?
No. Only cash bets with odds of greater than -300 will qualify for playthrough of a Bonus. For example, any bet at -500 would not play through your Bonus balance, but a bet at +200 would.
Will my Bonus balance unlock to cash 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 as playthrough for a Bonus, the cash will be unlocked as soon as the bet is placed. You do not need to wait for the bet to settle for your cash to unlock.
Can I cash out a bet that was used to play through a Bonus?
Yes, you can cash out a bet pending cash out is available, but any cash earned on the playthrough of that bet would be converted back to Bonus balance (Example 4). It is not forfeit; any subsequent wagers will play through the Bonus balance, provided the Bonus has not yet expired.
4. Converting cash back to Bonus balance: A patron unlocked $1 of a 10 playthrough Bonus on a $10 bet. They wish to cash out that $10 wager prior to the bet being settled for $8.
Please note that if there are insufficient cash funds to convert played through cash back to Bonus balance, cash out will not be available for that bet.
Do Bonuses expire?
Yes, Bonuses can expire. The expiration will be noted on the Reward Details page in the app and will be outlined in the promotion terms.
What if a Bonus expires before I can unlock it in its entirety?
If a Bonus expires before you play through its entire value, any cash that had been unlocked up until that point will remain in your cash balance. Any remaining Bonus balance will be forfeited upon expiry and not able to be played through to unlock as cash.
You can view the status of any used, partially used or expired Bonuses on the History tab of the Reward Details page.
