sorry but i had to share this story. i'm on top of the world right now. get this:

down to my last 55 CAD in neteller. can't find anywhere with an attractive bonus for the amount i have to deposit. decide what the hell, just stick it in some mg casino and play pontoon or bj, try and double it up like. so i go through my list, decide i should play at 32red, in hopes of not being bonus banned for only depositing once a month. sounds good. oops it plays in pounds so i can deposit ~25 gbp only, hope it goes through... through.

head over to pontoon, throw on the autoplay 1GBP bets... dialog box: sorry adjust your bet to our new minimum: 5GBP. no thanks! too risky. head over to ACBJ, throw on autoplay @ 2GBP, set to turn off if i go down 5 bets. sitting at 15 GBP, throw it on again to go until i'm down to 5. shuts off on a split. i play it through and come out okay. autoplay some more, get back up to 20 and then back down to 12. decide that's enough of that and grudgingly decide to spin it down 45p at a time at thunderstruck, hope to build it up to 20 or 25 with a few double-up wins.

start spinning, i win only one or two throws for about a pound each, lost one double up and didn't attempt the second time. i keep spinning another minute or so, lose every subsequent throw down to about 6 GBP left, when what do i get but three ramheads emblazoned with lightning! click here to start free spins! oh hell yeah. i'll be up to 20 at least after this.

on spin 3/15 i hit a nice payout for 6.75 gbp, spin 9/15 i hit one for another 11 gbp or so (three hammers maybe?), and then, spin 11/15 tack on another 135-ish (four castles and a wild i think?) for a total win of 158.85 on the free spins from a 45p pull. deposit 25, cash out 164. :cool:

now i am rolled to hit up the monthlies next week, i thought this might have been my last ride for a long while. thank you 32red, for allowing my petty deposit of 25 GBP, and thank you for raising the min at pontoon so i didn't wind it all down there busting 5-card double attempts.

and most of all, thank you for having fun, well-paying 45 cent/pence slots. this is my second time hitting the free spins playing thunderstruck and i've played MAYBE 500 pulls over four or five sessions at 45 or 90 cents/pence every time. the other time i hit it it only paid like 15 bucks/pounds.

the best bit is i know i'll get paid and quick since 32red has proven themselves time and again to myself and countless others. :thumbsup:

gambling is so thrilling and just when i had resigned hope, i trigger the free round in <25 pulls, and ring up what, a 333x bet win? cashed out 6x what i deposited when i was down to a chip and a chair. maybe this will inspire me out of the general state depression i was experiencing to this point. or maybe i'll degenerately gamble it all away and plunge further into the abyss...

tune in next week: same bat-time! same bat-channel!

Hmmm...I thought "nifty" was a peculiar Brit word. Interesting :)

simmo! how's it goin big fella?

i just couldn't think of a word to use on the spot, and came up with "nifty" as not too gangsta-braggish (was considering "32red is my b!tch") and not too spammish ("i love 32red, they are world class casino of all time")

being an outsider to slots, it was just nice to see them actually pay out for once. i've seen many a winner screencap, but i also fathom how many losing pulls come between those joyous times. with the frequency i play (often just to piss away my last 10-20 bucks), i was certain my time wouldn't come in the near future. but i got just what i needed when i was putting up a last stand. made my day and week, turkey dinner on canadian thanksgiving had to highlight the month of october though.

winning rules! wish i did more of it... november 1st i'm hittin the tables, and maybe machines, hard!

They're in my good books today too... Four hammers and a Thor in the free spins, then on the VERY NEXT SPIN, four thors and some lightening. Only 2.25 a spin - but a nice 1300 to start your day :D

:thumbsup: Agreed on that one. The absolute creme de la creme. Glad you had a good experience Happygobrokey!! Just an FYI...you have the option of playing in Canadian Dollars at 32Red and Dash. I changed my accounts over to Canadian quite a while back, took about ten minutes, lol. No more exchange fees for me.

Okay, can you leave something for me? Just waiting on a small affiliate payment so I can go play. I had been going to play Thor, but it sounds like you've broken him now Slotster. Good going!! :thumbsup:

Edited to add: Have you guys noticed that Loaded and Moonshine are now available on the flash version of 32Red? Gotta try that out, lol.

haha can i keep changing it so when it comes time to deposit and claim a bonus it takes place in pounds and then switch the total to CAD and use that to play and w/d, rinse repeat?

i deliberately signed up in pounds for double value bonus (busted 2/3 months incidentally but the one i got paid was decent), but converting that balance into CAD chips to play with a bigger stack and not getting charged for conversion on the withdraw could be useful, but only if i could change it back and score the gbp bonus every month.

or do you think the fact i'm playing in pounds might give them more of a case to bonus-ban me, where if i start playing in cad the offer will last? i know a lot of folks get ~3 months and cut off because they won all three. i actually deliberately lost in month 2 of 3, well gambooled the sh!t out of the ~65 i had after the wr, going for broke or 300 quid.

thanks for the info though. what kind of a bonus does CAD get anyway (the same 50 CAD?), or did you only change after they banned you or do you not even play with bonus?

This may sound irrelevant but once i had $0.50 in my intercasino account and after getting lucky at a slot i jumped to $10 or so and after that with BJ I reached 100$(was even) and cashed out:D

i just had a ...fun... experience with their live chat. call me impatient but it's been 20 hours for 32red cashout... something's up right? so i took about twenty minutes, being dropped from chat twice and accused of having my october bonus wr still to meet when i fully busted it back on the 4th, to get the answer that yeah it is usually ~24 hours, just be patient. and much drama threaded therein. i then tried to snoop out info on november's bonus, is it the same, will it come early or late in the month, 'mark-w' was not giving up anything on that. he said disabling the reverse withdrawal will not speed up my cashout. is that true? people just do it to keep them from themselves? anyway, i hope i get it back in neteller before i go to bed. i forgot i haven't hit casino euro's yet this month. pEace

Ummm no, you can't change it back and forth. And it's your prerogative to sign up in Pounds to get a larger bonus, but that thought doesn't cross my mind. I just prefer to play in my own currency. I love bonuses as much as the next person, but (here we go) I don't use them to make money...I use them merely as a way to extend my playing time. If I happen to get lucky and win a decent amount and meet wagering, sure I'll cashout. But that's not my number one priority...for me, it's about the entertainment value. So no, I haven't been banned from bonuses at any casino, as I so rarely cashout. And my monthly bonus from 32Red is $132 (the Club Rouge one)...I think in a year's worth of Club Rouge matches, I've cashed out on it once. Many times I could have, but continued to play. I'm not the type to deposit $25 and cashout if I hit $100. My minimum cashout is probably $400-$500. In answer to your other question, I make my share of bonus free deposits at 32Red as well, it's pretty much the only casino I play at anymore.

In regards to your support issue, I'm pretty surprised to hear you had problems as I've dealt with Mark W. many times, and he has always been great with me. As to the 20 hour wait time.......OMG!!!!! 20 whole hours??? LOL.....really Happy, come on. Your money will be in your Neteller in the morning I'm sure. The accounts dept. doesn't work 24 hours a day, and they are six hours ahead of us in Gibraltar. Depending on the time you cashed out yesterday...accounting was probably already closed for the day. As for the reverse time, I think 32Red only keeps withdrawals a few hours in the pending stage, and they will flush it for you if you ask.

I highlighted the paragraph above in your post about getting your monthly bonus, cause it sets off alarm bells where alot of casinos are concerned. Matter of fact, there are many who would lock your acct and deny any winnings just for that fact alone...some have it written into their T and C's. I think you should be thankful that 32Red allows you to play in Pounds and receive bonuses in same, when you are living in Canada. JMO. :)

agree totally. i do prefer gbp to usd though, just feels proper. i'm in the commonwealth, it's more native to me than us dollars historically speaking. i shy from playing in CAD because it's never stated what the bonus amount would be whether it's equivalent in value to the USD bonus or the same dollar figure only in CAD. if they wanted, 32red could make their bonus for 25 gbp instead of 50 and kill the double value part of it, but they haven't so why not do it?

like i said i've busted the past two monthly bonuses so they got twice as much from me than if i were playing in USD or CAD. essentially they're offering a 100/100 match with the 50 gbp so why not play that instead of 50/50? i play will hill in pounds too, it was only a marginal difference in bonus value, but i still did it despite the lower chip stack doing it that way (25+25 gbp instead of 40+40 usd). so there is also added amount of volatility with smaller stacks. whether that's abuse? even if i get called on something like that, i still won't lose anything other than the ability to do it again.

I know EXACTLY what you mean :) Although I play mostly in $USD to make the money go further, but it does feel lightweight somehow.

Try the Canadian buckeroo Simmo....light as a feather, lol. Course it's all relative. If I win, I win less...but I'm risking alot less also. It's all the same to me, just more credits to spin when the mood hits. :)

Cashed in 15,000 loyalty points over at Fortune Lounge Monday, turned that into $650...

Why I like MG's sooooo much, never been able to do this on any other s/w...
Lost count of times I've done this over the years.

just posting to say 32red indeed has paid me now as i knew they would, and to say that their rep on board here even made the effort to pm me and get involved, which was not asked for or even necessary in this case, but shows a very professional attitude and a commitment to customer satisfaction. nice going 32red, i like you even more now. casino patrons like attention paid to them, and 32red was very friendly to take the first step and pm me to ask if i was okay. they really do care how i am today! :thumbsup:

Oh good. I thought 32red was going downhill. Afterall, we haven't had any long threads about Pat & Ed being online on a Sunday lately, and apparently no affiliates have received any champagne in the past two months. :D

But seriously, enjoy the bonus while it lasts because you will probably not be offered them for long with your playing and cashing-out style.

32red IS Nifty

32red pulled out of the U.S. market as expected. Some casinos couldn't pull the plug fast enough, after years of player loyalty. But not 32red. They went out with class. They offered plenty of notice, and gave me a "Beat the Ban" bonus.

If all the casinos came back into the USA tomorrow, guess who would get my play?
