Prize money of wheel

When shifting to a new level, you will be able to participate in the raffle of cash prizes. You can spin the wheel with prizes in "My bonuses" tab.

In December 2019, the system for calculating prizes in Fish Buffet spins has changed. Previously, the size of prize money depended on certain points: your play style, deposit, behavior and the table. Now, the probability will be the same in all prizes, which will even the odds of getting big and small cash bonuses.

All unused spins will be launched automatically 30 days after receiving, and the winnings will be credited to your deposit. In September 2020, the number of prizes was also increased. However, you need to accumulate more FP points to receive them.

Since the end of February 2021, the range of wheel prizes has been reduced to $120 - $1 200.
