Where The Player Comes First :rolleyes:

Note: I had opted in to the promo upon receipt of the casino's promotional email. Upon entering the casino's home page this was confirmed at the "My Promotins" window of the home page indicated by "You've Entered" being displayed under the promo notification. So there! I'd post a screen shot but the casino's "My Promotions" section is on the blink! And another thing: anyone else do the math in the 1st email on the bonus I was supposedly credited? And I checked Playcheck: The $17.45 they claim I was credited was a win on HoHoHo with 45 cents bet with 3 Wild Santas anna coupla Rudolfs! :lolup:

Sounds like a little bumbling on their end. But certainly not rogue behavior:eek2:

It'll work out for ya.

Hi William

Thank you for your e-mail.

I have reviewed your account and can confirm that the bonus amount of $17.45 that was added to your account was not as part of this current purchase match offer that is running. (DUH!-bernynhel) You are yet to be credited for your $48.01 purchase made in your Royal Vegas account (OK so...$17.45 is not 20% of $48.01???-bernynhel)

You have been opted in for the promotion and the bonus will be credited to your account. within the next 3-6 hours.

In future all you would have to do is opt in for the promotion by clicking on the link on the message of the day. (Guess the part about my already being opted in for the promotion got lost in mail, huh?-bernynhel)

We wish you the best of luck and hope to see you at the Casino soon.

Thank you for your patronage. Please do not hesitate to contact us, should you have any further queries.

Yippers, and I think that's the part of the rogue pit they're in... but another kind of bumble altogether.

I think they got turned into a newt, but they're much better now:D

Hi William

Thank you for your e-mail.

Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience caused by this matter. I have sent through a request to have the bonus manually credited and it should be in your account within the next 30 minutes.

Due to a system glitch the system picked up the tournament winnings as a purchase match and that is the reason why the purchase match was not credited. (Of course I won no tournament but you think this guy needs to be any more confused than he already is?-bernynhel)

We thank you for your patience (WHAT patience???-bernynhel) and understanding and hope to see you at the Casino soon.

Dear William ******************************************************* * GREAT NEWS: Your Account's Been Credited. * ******************************************************* Casino : Royal Vegas CasinoAccount : rvrxxx Credits : 12.06 Casino Credits Promotion : Fortune Lounge Deposit BonusTime/Date : 11/18/2007 ******************************************************* Congratulations William, please enjoy your 12.06 Casino Credits. Simply login to your account and have some fun. PLEASE ENSURE that you read the Wagering Requirements.......Thank you for playing at Fortune Lounge, The Fortune Lounge Support Team Fortune Lounge : 1934 Driftwood Bay, Belize City, Belize

OK so after all the BS and I finally got the bonus yesterday and I played pretty good but didn't think I had enough bankroll to really do nuthin an I was feelin pretty good so I deposited after I lost the bonus. I know, I KNOW! (stop laughing!) But I didn't even know if the deposit match promo was still on so I log into the casino after getting the above email this morning and I find......a bonus of $2.46. Great! Just what I need - a new hobby for SUNDAY! So I reply with the following, natch!:

A bonus of $12.06 was NOT added to my account!!! A bonus of $2.46 WAS added to my account and since I made TWO deposits of $49.77 EACH a bonus of $19.90 SHOULD have been added to my account. Either credit my account for the difference of the $2.46 that you ACTUALLY credited me and the $19.90 you SHOULD have credited me - $17.44. Or at LEAST credit my account the difference of the $2.46 you ACTUALLY credited me and the $12.06 you FALSELY CLAIM you credited me - $9.60.

For ONCE I'd like you people to do something that you're supposed to do without my involvement which does NOT INCLUDE ME having to get INVOLVED!

Hi William

Thank you for contacting the Casino Desk.

William, I reviewed your Royal Vegas casino account and I do see that you were not credited the full bonus amount. You purchased an amount of $147.55 and your received one bonus of $9.60 on 2007/11/18 02:28:39 AM and another of $2.46 on 2007/11/18 05:53:46 PM totaling $12.06

I have sent through a request to have the amount of $17.45 OK I rounded down a penny they rounded up-bernynhel) credited to your account.

I would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused with regards to this matter.

I thank you for your time and patience (WHAT patience???-bernynhel) in this regard.

Please contact us again, should you have any further queries.

Thank you for your patronage and remember: "Fortune favors the bold" (OOOH! A new slogan!!!)

This is a first: Every week I deposit during their match promo period Wed-Sun. Every week I have to get after FL to credit the bonus that is supposed to be credited automatically within 12 hours. This is the FIRST TIME - EVER -that the first reply in response to one of my "Where's My Bonus?" emails was NOT a load of B.S. trying to tell me that a $18.32 slot win on a 36 cent bet on Tally Ho was really my bonus and they didn't owe me nuthin or some similar horseshoe! Its gotta be cuz I let 'em know that I'm posting all the B.S. they make me call them on HERE at CM!!! What else could it be? Right? So my reply:

Simple. These guys dont know how to multiply ($48x20%) equals $9.6. instead of $17.45 but they know how to subtract ($19.91 - $17.45) equals presto $2.46. They arent rogues but rather primary schoolers who still need to learn multiplication and division. What incompetence!

Been a while since I posted at CM and wuddn't ya know it would be FL to provide the inspiration to write something!

Deposited last night at Royal Vegas and forgot about it figuring the bonus wouldn't be applied for at least a day. Logged in today and no bonus! Surprise! :rolleyes: Telephoned support and was astounded to hear something besides static!!! Oh Boy! Support said they were having some problems and that bonuses were now (then) being posted and would take only 2 -3 hours. So I took a nap (5 1/2 hours) woke up and guess what?

2nd time I call support (No static AGAIN! WOOO-HOOOOO!!) and now they say the bonuses (weekly match deposit bonuses offered Wed-Sun/35% this week) started kicking in 32 minutes ago (?) and now would only take 2-3 hours! (It's not GROUNDHOG'S DAY, is it?) Uh, what about what the other guy said 5 1/2 hours earlier? Support guy no. 2 contradicted support guy no. 1 then checked the log and told me support guy no. 1 told me 3 -6 hours not 2-3 hours. BS!! Plain case of FL revisionist history!!! :lolup:

FYI: I've been taking part in this FL promo every week for months and have NEVER had a bonus credited withnout a hassle!

What VIP level are you?
I have not seen a single traditional "loyalty match" bonus based on a deposit for a very long time there. They certainly came along before, but then they changed their VIP scheme, still based on points earned each month, but seemingly a change for the worse.
I do not play there much, so am, of course, on the lowest VIP level; but when I did raise myself to Silver, it seemed to offer nothing more (a bit like Grand Prive in this respect).

I used to be a VIP there... I never made it to the Platinum level, although I was led to believe that I did at one point in an email:

Your Players Club loyalty status has changed to Platinum. Visit the Fortune Lounge Players Club website to learn how to maintain, and improve your loyalty status.
... only to be rescinded shortly after via another email:

Please accept our heartfelt apologies. You received an email advising you of a change to your Players Club loyalty status. Regrettably, this communication was incorrect. Kindly refer to the Players Club Website for your correct status. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you.
I was what they called a VIP, but I don't recall anything different... except maybe instead of wagering $10,000 to get a $1 comp you had to wager only $9,900 or something.

LOL what a joke. It's sad that most of the heavily marketed loyalty programs are basically worthless, or close.
