If you watch casino streamers on Twitch, you have probably seen them do a bonus hunt. If you arrived during the opening, you probably wondered « How does this streamer have so many bonuses? ». Be assured, we all had this question the first time we saw someone opening a bonus hunt.
This article is only the first one in a series of bonus hunt guides we are about to release.
What is a bonus hunt / bonus hunting?
When talking of bonus hunting, we are not referring to the practice of looking for a good welcome promotion and signing up for them multiple times. This would be called bonus abuse or bonus whoring.
A bonus hunt is the practice of playing on a slot machine and leaving it as soon as you unlock its bonus mode (most of the time by getting three scatters). You repeat this operation on other machines, until your balance gets close to zero. Once you are done stacking bonuses, you go back on these machines to play the free spins feature and collect your winnings.
We highly recommend you to use a spreadsheet to keep track of all the bonuses you stacked.

The number ONE mistake you should not make
There is one mistake you should avoid at all cost when bonus hunting with an active bonus. Always stop collecting bonuses before your balance goes below €1. Allowing your balance to go to zero will cancel your wager. Doing this while bonus hunting is considered as bonus abuse.
If you want to avoid your balance going to zero, we advise you to do disable auto spinning. Doing your last spins manually is safer.
