Party Casino is part of the bwinparty group which includes bwin and Party Poker- their other famous brand. This outfit is one of the longest established gaming companies online and offers a tidy range of virtual roulette games and live dealer tables.
The £100 bonus is modest, and the wagering requirements are pretty steep for roulette players. They take some time to work out too, given that the wagering is linked to loyalty points- we break it down below into the more usual wagering turnover requirement (how many times you need to bet through the deposit and bonus to hit the wagering requirements before you can cash out the bonus and/or winnings). Only bets that cover less table than an even money bet count towards the turnover.
The first time deposit bonus is a £100 match (100% match on your first deposit). Pretty modest, I hear you say. And yes, that is true, but let's take a look at the wagering requirements to check if there is a silver lining.
One of our main gripes here at OnlineRoulette.org.uk is the onerous conditions that we see sometimes on the bonus offers where roulette players are concerned. We understand that there are bonus abusers about that casinos have to protect themselves against, but on the other hand it irks us when big bonuses have special conditions for roulette players- and those conditions are hidden in the small print.
Party Casino are at least transparent with their conditions, although they are tucked away in the small print. The bonus is linked to their loyalty program, so you need to check the general T's and C's, the promotional T's and C's and the Loyalty program T's and C's to work out what they are. We prefer simpler terms to be honest!
The bonus conditions are set out in a structure that is a little unusual (compared to the majority of bonuses we see in any case), but once you get your head around them they are pretty clear.
"Welcome to the Party".
That's their strap-line.
Deposit £100 – play with £200 (100% match).
Make your first deposit and Party Casino will match up to £100 of it with a 100% bonus, instantly doubling your playing money.

Summary of Terms (Full terms on Party Casino website)
Deposit bonuses have withdrawal restrictions which must be met before the bonus and any winnings can be withdrawn
Before you’re able to withdraw the bonus or winnings you’ll need to accumulate a number of loyalty points equal to the value of the bonus plus the deposit amount multiplied by a Point Ratio of 1.8 for pounds sterling and 1.5 for euros (or 1.4 for dollars). Let's focus on pounds shall we? 🙄
For a £10 bonus, you will need to accumulate 36 loyalty points (£10 + £10) x 1.8.
For a £100 bonus (maximum) you will need to accumulate 360 bonus points.
To earn 1 loyalty point, you need to make £25 in bets on slots or £125 bets on applicable roulette bets (anything with less coverage than an even money bet). Are you still following this?
So before you withdraw the bonus and/or winnings on a £10 bonus, you would need to make bets worth £4500 which is a wagering requirement of 225 x (deposit + bonus). Wow.
If you glazed over, the summary is this:
Wagering requirements are 225x bonus + deposit. Only medium to high risk bets allowed.
Points cannot be accumulated via Bonus Pairs Blackjack, low risk roulette bets or Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker.
Specifically, bets placed in any game of roulette on the winning number being red, black, odd, even, between the number range 1 - 18, or between the number range 19 - 36 will not be counted as valid wagers for the purposes of meeting the withdrawal or wagering restrictions of any promotion.
The bottom line is, I wouldn't bother with the bonus. Just make a deposit.

We'd recommend Party Casino if you are more comfortable with a big brand. There is a decent selection of live and virtual games and, being a big company, they accept a wide range of deposit methods including PayPal. The bonus is modest though and the wagering requirement is high. We don't recommend taking the bonus if you are just going to play roulette.
