    Slotland and Winaday WARNING: mandatory bonus

    Hello, I want to share my recent experience with these two casinos. I just recently made some deposits on slotland only to find that they have a mandatory "match bonus" which basically doubles your deposit. Now right offhand that sounds good, but be advised you have to complete the wagering requirements before a withdrawal can be requested. I asked the live chat support if you had to accept the bonuses and he said yes they were automatically added and could not be taken off nor could you request them to not be added. Sounds real fair huh. So after spending 100 bucks here I finally just wrote them off. Be advised that if you choose to deposit at slotland you can kiss your deposit good bye because you will have an up hill battle right from the start with their bullshit bonus requirements. So off to winaday casino where immediately I liked the layout and the slots seemed to be more affordable than their sister site slotland. So I made a modest deposit of 25 dollars and noticed my account said 80 dollars so I thought here we go again another "match bonus" that I did not claim. So I went to live chat and asked what the terms were with the bonus and what she said next almost made me fall off my chair. She said I had to wager 1,800 more dollars before I was elligible to cash out. I said are you serious, I never even claimed this bonus. She said the same thing as slotland that the bonuses were added automatically and was part of the deal more less. I never in my life have been to a online casino where you were given a mandatory bonus with insane wagering requirements before you can cash out. It is my belief that this is absurd and nothing short of a scam. I warn all players to stay away from this deceitful scheme. I'm just glad I wasted just 125 dollars.

    So you got screwed over on one site - and thought, oh well let me check out their sister site to see if they'll do the same?

    You must either really adore their proprietary games, or have the strongest case of "curious George" syndrome i have ever heard of Such a wide choice of accredited casinos to pick from...

    Yeah, above sounds like a total rip-off. I've never heard of a mandatory bonus with no option to exclude that ties in your deposited funds into a major turnover. That said, why do it *twice*??

    I'm really not sure if they're mandatory (not doubting you) just that they are automatic. The bonus terms on their front page are pretty weak...that, or concise. But they don't say obligatory.
    Anyway, personally, I find the games dull as dirt and wouldn't dep there anyway

    curiosity killed the cat.

    Yes, I have to say I have no one to blame but myself. The strange thing is I do research on any site before I put money on it and all the reviews on these two casinos seemed to be good. I was really surprised, goes to show you, you can't always trust the "good reviews" it's probably their own site publishing them. Oh well, you live you learn. I just hope to keep others from being sucked in to this blatantly deceitful scheme.

    The mandatory bonus (if you can't remove it) is one of the biggest red flags I can think of. Not as bad as the can't withdraw until you clear the wager requirements even though you busted out, and made a fresh deposit. Forget what its called but basically whatever wager requirements you had on your deposit rolls over to future deposits and continues to do so until you clear the wagering, no matter how many times you bust out.

    Not sure why this thread surprised me. Did kind of think maybe things had changed in the short time I was gone.

    YES MOST DEFINITLEY MANDATORY

    Yes they are mandatory in every sense of the word. That's what really blew me away, i'd never heard of such a thing either. I was told via live chat and by email. You can take my word for it.

    Betfair had that after they adopted playtech. Even better - if you take a bonus with your first deposit and bust out, your second deposit TOPS UP the bonus balance, meaning you cant withdraw it even if you decide not to make a single wager. basically a one-way money guzzling machine.

    most ridiculous thing i've ever heard of.

    instead of taking your word - since it is not advertised anywhere to be the case, do you have anything to back your case up? If it is true and have correspondence to prove it, i don't think they are rogued here - might be worth PABing it so max can take a look.

    It sounds extremely predatory, especially if not documented - given you are being truthful that is.

    here you go igor

    Sigh, there's always one. Here you go igor if this makes you feel better. Dear Ben,

    As I explained you are advised to wager the total of all wagering requirements in your account before you can cash out. However I have forwarded the issue also to our Supervisor. Please wait for his reply.
    Sincerely,
    Vicky

    This was the email I recieved after I complained about this mandatory match bonus.
