    Question Do you play with signup bonuses?

    A quick poll to accompany this discussion, just to see where opinion is these days

    For the sake of argument, assume this for signup bonuses that have to be credited before you start wagering.

    I usually will take signup bonuses at
    MG
    casinos, normally just because it's often credited automatically. If it is, I don't bother asking to have it removed, I just play it.

    I voted yes simply because I exclusively play at accredited or their associated sites, which tend to have reasonable
    WR
    's.
    I have seen some offers that I wouldn't touch though.

    It's also worth mentioning that we assume that the terms have been read before taking the SUBs and there are no restrictive cahsout limits on the winnings.

    I had to vote "Yes, regularly" because there was not a "Yes, always" option.

    I always take the sign-up bonus at every new casino I play; If a casino's welcome bonus is rubbish, I don't play there at all.

    I voted "Very occasionally" because most times I drop $200+
    Can't see the point of taking a bonus, which limits not only when I can withdrawal but also my game play too.

    If a bonus is credited automatically, I contact support (live chat or phone) and have it removed before commencing play. On the times when it's a nightmare to have the bonus removed, I play it. If I win great, if not I unistall the casino, because
    imo
    a player shouldn't jump hoops to have a bonuses removed. I beleive the practical option of depositing then asking if a player wants a bonus or not is the right thing to do. Just assuming a player will accept it, is wrong.

    'more often than not'

    Taking the dep bonus also allows me to get a feel for support, since I verify the Tc and Cs of the promo with live chat.
    These days, my budget isn't as limited, so I've the recent luxury of playing straight up deposits and not as concerned with the play-time. Hard to say, almsot 50/50, but more I'd guess. I like the few 100% bonuses, but mostly just chuck the straight 100 in now after the sub

    Sign up bonuses are generally designed to show the casino in the best light, and thus, the wager requirements are pretty low as well as other restrictions being reduced or eliminated, such as max cashouts or bet-size limitations. So I will generally take those even though I, again, generally don't play with regular bonuses which have far more restrictions.

    I chose never. I never take bonuses since I don't like to having my money being locked into some wagering requirement. I'm known for kamikaze betting and would probably be bonus banned if I ever took them.
