Clear promo terms should be required
 

Most online sportsbooks and casinos have promos such as sign up and receive $20 in free play.

 

Often, the terms and conditions are not made clear. Example: I sign up for a sports betting website because it says I will reive $20 in freebetting. Now, I might think once I wager $20 I can withdraw the winnings or remaining amount. Often, this is not the case. Often there is a hidden requirement to wager that $20 10 or even 20 times.

 

I simply ask that it be required for the protection of the consumer that such terms and conditions be made clear and prominent on the same webpage as the promo and not hidden elsewhere on the website.
