    Bali Casino has withheld a buy-in bonus, despite substantial play by me. They gave only $477 of a $552 cashout. Here is their explanation:

    <,You didn't earn the deposit bonus, in order to
    <,earn it you have to play an amount at least equal
    <,to the amount you deposited + the deposit bonus

    The buy-in was $500, bonus was $75, and my action was more than $1200, which is certainly "at least equal" to their requirement.

    I'm trying to figure out if they are sleazy or if it's just a mistake, but they did not respond to my email so I can't tell for sure.

    I've notified Balicasino about Chip's posting. Let's hope for a quick response.

    I've called balicasino about 15 times. They did send me an email claiming my wagers were not enough to earn the bonus. They said my action was only $123. That is dead wrong. It was $1230. They have also refused to send me an audit trail of every bet made, even though that was promised on the phone. I've had several long conversations with the techies who answer, but have never been able to reach management. For three days it's been "they're on the phone" and "Laura just stepped out." They've now stopped taking my calls altogether.

    This is truely bizaare behavior. I can't for the life of me figure out why they would offer a bonus they won't pay. It just alienates customers. The poor techies are stuck on the phone all day dealing with disgruntled customers that the management pisses off, then refuses to deal with.

    I conclude that denying the bonus was conscious and intentional. If it was a mistake, by this time I could have reached the person who made the decision. I concluded long ago I wouldn't get the money, but have been pursuing them anyway out of perverse curiosity about what produced these weird business practices.

    If you're as curious as I, call them at 800-897-0550.

    That's Don't play it.

    The only thing left to do is put a posting on Usenet so people can look up balicasino on dejanews.

    Since posting the above and sending a copy to Bali, I received the email reprinted below (with earlier emails attached). I leave open the possibility that Bali might correct the situation, but it has required a compulsive level of effort to get them to deal with it.

    I signed up at Bali Casino but didn't deposit any money. They called me at home to ask me how much I had deposited because they were having computer problems! I told them I had deposited $00.00 (the truth). I wonder what would have happened if I had told them otherwise? Anyway, after this extraordinary incompetence I decided never to play there.
