    Angry Are all online casinos this crooked with bonuses???

    I'm ready to pick a casino and make deposit. I'm thinking WOW, this will be great depositing $200+ and getting a match of $200 !!!! Then I read the fine print and almost puke. I have to bet 10-20x my deposit plus bonus amount before I can withdraw any money. That is like $6000 worth of wagering and to top it off , it appears to be the wagering has to be mainly on the slots, which I don't even play. This is ridiculous!!!!!!!!!! It honest makes me want to completely shy away from all of this before I even get started.

    Before I quit before I start in disgust, are there any casinos out there where I can make a deposit, and actually WITHDRAW my money whenever I want to ??????????????? I don't even want a bonus, unless it's fair.

    UNREAL

    10-20x unfair?

    Do yourself a favor and don't take a bonus.

    Transparency, as used in the humanities and in a social context more generally, implies openness, communication, and accountability. It is a metaphorical extension of the meaning a "transparent" object is one that can be seen through. ...

    Bonus

    Sure, just play somewhere and don't put in the bonus code. Most casino start up bonuses that I use are mainly just on slots and are between 15-20x deposit and bonus before a cashout is allowed. There are some table game players on the forum that may be able to help you with some non slot bonuses. Good Luck

    For most casinos do not enter a bonus code, however if you find a casino that automatically credits the bonus to your account, you don't have to worry. All you got to do when you make the deposit and receive your bonus is not touch the bonus or deposit at all (don't even place one small bet) and just get on to customer support and ask them to remove the bonus from your account and when this happens (should only take a few minutes) just confirm with them that the bonus has been removed and confirm that you can now withdraw whenever you want.

    Also regularly check the promotions page because usually there are a few table game promotions.

    Good advice, but you should check to make sure that this can be done before you make a deposit...

    And also make sure that they won't exclude you from all bonuses, just in case they send one out that is actually worth taking...

    30xBonus wagering ($6000 wagering on a $200 bonus, like you listed) with low weighting on non-slot games is the standard for Microgaming. There are some bonuses with far less wagering... in a few cases 2xBonus wagering or less. And there are also a few bonuses that permit you to withdraw whenever you choose as well (used to be standard for MG a couple years ago), but these low wagering bonuses are the exception, not the rule.

    Yes, it's called Clearplay bonus. There are some casino who offer this kind of bonus, for example: 32Red Group (32 Red Casino, Dash Casino), Jackpot Factory Group (All Slots Casino, All Jackpots Casino, Wild Jack, First Web Casino), Casino Rewards Group (Challenge Casino, Yukon Gold Casino, Captain Cooks Casino, Blackjack Ballroom, Aztec Riches, Casino Kingdom, Zodiac Casino, Lucky Emperor Casino, Virtual City Casino), Canbet, Casino Club and others

    You might be also interested in Post-wager bonus, with this you will get the bonus credited after you have met the WR and you can withdraw anytime.

    Since the OP gives his location as USA, none of those casinos are available to him anyway.
    I don't know any OK for USA casinos who have "ClearPlay" or post-wager bonuses.
    {Edit} Just remembered; All Star Slots has "ClearPlay" - but it's slots only.

    Some bonuses can be great if you play them right - even slots bonuses!
    I've been making regular profit by using casino bonuses for 8-years.

    However, I agree that there are very few decent non-slots bonuses available at casinos who accept USA players, so if you only want to play cards, dice or roulette then you would be better off not taking any bonuses as others have said above.

    But please chose your casinos carefully - even without bonus T&C's there are still lots of casinos who will rip you off.
    Stick to recommended / accredited ones only.
    Good luck!
    I'd rather be playing golf...

    32Red and withdraw whenever you want?? I do not think that is true. I always get an e-mail telling me I still need to wager xxx before I can withdraw anything. Maybe you mean withdraw the original amount whenever you are ahead, voiding the bonus?
