Lately I've been getting some of the MG offers buy $50...get $200.

Terms are 20x WR and slots only.

I've done a couple of these the last few months...but I always bust out before the WR is reached. (damn that ThunderdUck)

Was wondering if anyone has had better/similar experiences.

Even on a 95% machine you're a dead duck with 20x.
At 90% well...

Maybe that bonuswhore tactic where you chuck the lot on a few huge spins and if it hits you grind out the WR...

Three reel machines have a lot less variance than 5 reelers.

Lucky Nugget?

20x is always a lot. I'm sure KK will have some ideas. Personally, i'd take the $250, run ThunderdUck (lol) at $9 and if i hit a big-un, go low, if not, its $50 :rolleyes:

Hi Daffy, which casino's offering that? I wouldn't mind one of those. I agree with the above that you're a dead duck at 20x on t'struck, but it'll give you some ammo, and increase your chances of hitting those big runs on T'Struck. Gimme a 400% bonus anytime :), at least you get a fair shot on hitting something big. Like Simmo! said, after all it's only $50 out of your pocket:thumbsup:

Cheers,
SM

400% bonus? Go for it!

Even better to my opinion, use them for the progressives!;)
They may have less return percentage, but u chase a big one with the casinos money!
If u get it, then you can easily meet whatever WR!

I have used most of those bonuses. Over time some casinos change their welcome bonuses, so I have my eyes open for new offers as I haven't yet got a jackpot...#$^$%&%^*&*(%$^@:D

TIP: U can find these offers in various portals/websites which offer bonuses for signing through them. Check around cause their offers are different and much better than the casinos official websites. (e.g. here on the Meister's bonus page u can find some)

At 20x, $50 and $200 bonus, the house edge of 95% will wipe you out just as you make WR. One decent hit though, and you are up. This is an excellent deal for a slots players, and there is no way they can offer 400% on the other games and expect to be left alone by the "whores".
I would recommend Carnaval, 5 Reel Drive (provided they can be run at 45c), and of the 3 reelers, those with the smaller jackpots. Sonic Boom, in particular, seems to run at a 5c minimum, whereas the others are mostly at 25c minimum coin.
I took these slots only offers at the Jackpot Factory. I was cleaned out on one, but did well on the other. I played 5 reel drive at 2.25 a spin (the minimum), and got lucky at one casino hitting Burgers, and then truckers a few spins later. The rest of the WR was then easy, leading to a fairly decent win. I would rather have simple terms like "slots only", rather than verbose exclusions and provisos that then lead to problems with the cash-in where CS don't understand their own T & C.

20X WR 400%

Hi,
Belle Rock frequently offers dep 50 bonus $150. I am about 50/50 on these by A. running the amount up playing BJ and B moving to a 3 reel non jackpot slot (such as Jurasic Park .25- $1) to clear the WR. Though my net profit has been decent, largest win $550 greatest loss $50. And sometimes I can not move to step B. Yes I will put autoplay on slots to clear WR.
Need to make sure you can play excluded games.

Last one I busted out was Ruby Fortune (last month)...using the link on the "main" from here at CM. One was a few months ago...a Belle Rocke. Seems like I did a Grand Prive one in 2004.

Most recent offer was emailed to me from Vegas Palms a few days ago...new player signup...it's on their website also...it is 20x slots only.

I figured these orginate from MG to promote signups.

Try It, We all get lucky once in a while(case in point follows)

I am an enthusiastic low roller and as such love any bonus MG bonus over 150% and while I would prefer the lower WR than the MG system is much more fair than those I've seen at some of the other establishments(you know, where they attach a 10 to 25% bonus onto your hundred dollar deposits and then slap a 20X or more WR on the entire stake deposit, sticky bonus and all as well as a withdrawal limit that is 10 times your deposit, that's expensive tuition on the school of hard knocks). As a matter of fact two days ago I had an amazing streak at Piggs Peak where the requirements actually worked to my advantage. The deal was deposit 50 and get a bonus of 85 for a $135 stake with an 18 times wagering requirement. Within my first 20 spins I hit "Spectacular Wheel of Wealth" for an $800 bonus spin and then had some decent bonus rounds on "Spring Break". I checked in with the casino when my balance was about $1,300 and found out I was about $400 short of meeting the wagering requirements so went onto to "What on Earth" happily anticipating being able to net around $900 after meeting the playthru(a VERY good day for me especially on a $50 stake), where to my chin dropping amazement I beamed up the Statue of Liberty in the bonus round and made another $1,800. The day got kinda dull from that point on I but played for another couple hours before making a $3,000 withdrawal. What fun and if I had been playing without a bonus and its' attendant T and C's I would have stopped after my initial $800 spin and missed almost all of the fun and most of the profit! I have some reasonably profitable days beating the WR though none of this magnitude and I have to give my endorsement to bonuses of this nature as a way for the proud bottom feeder to get more play out of their limited gaming dollars.;)

These most likely originate from either affiliates, or the group where you play to encourage you to try another of their properties.
You need to be careful with the large "too good to be true" offers that plop into your mailbox, as sometimes these are simply not lived up to by the casino. I suspect you are less likely to have trouble with slots bonuses though, as there is no real way to be an "advantage player" on slots as is the case with "Blackjack Allowed" bonuses.

I would use that bonus if I wanted to play on a broke weekend . I would bet low and hope for the best and hope to win something but not expect it .

Two Fortune Lounge casinos that haven't been mentioned here so far:

Platinum Play - deposit $50, get $150 bonus, 20x db, slots only

Vegas Palms - deposit $20-$50, 400% bonus, 20x db, slots only

I did both, quickly busted at Vegas Palms. At Platinum Play turned $50 into $700 by the time WR was met.

Fortune Lounge has a 24 hr Reverse Withdrawal pending period. After that you can request them to flush. Found the funds in my Neteller abt 24 hours after that. Have had similar good withdrawal experiences at other FL casinos. Their comp system isn't attractive though.

Hello!
I had the same question in my mind and came to CM to check if someone else has had my same problem with bonus.
After long time without depositing, yesterday I tried Shark casino 300% sign up bonus, deposit 20 bonus 80. I could play really long time, but the wagering requirements were 2000$:eek2: maximum I hit was 175$ after that it started the downhill till 0 when I still had 600$ to wager. Impossible.
I played in many other casinos with bonus, really nice screenshots, but nada!
The only ones in which I could win are those in which I played blackjack or in casino Lux where I hit a jackpot, so of course I could finish the playthrough.

Well, you don't really need to hit a monster, but you need to be wagring in the $3-$9 range. Doing 200 spins on Harveys on $5 usually gives you the bonus, and if your lucky you get break even with those spins - however $5 * 200 = 1K wagering. With a 20x WR your half way by this.

Another important thing to remember, correct me if I'm wrong. Say you do 1 spin on $10 on Cabin Fever and get 20 freespins. Your WR is counted as 21 spins x $10 = $210 worth of spins! Atleast I remember Spin Palace calculating this way, since my own calculations always was lower (and accurate). Counting freespins is the only way I got the calculations to go up, meaning this is nice thing to be aware of. Especially the games that retrigger can do wonders for you. But you need to have some size in the wagering, atleast sometimes.

When that is said, a 35K WR is easily wagered in 3-4 hours when doing $3-$9 wagering, but you need some luck aswell - thats pretty obvious, :D

Earth, man!
Personally I dont like play through of bonuses, buy $50 get $200 sounds good but most of the time your fighting a losing battle. If I hit a big win quick I want to be able to just cash out a chunk, ill NEVER stop playing though if I hit this win its just nice to know your not gonna be down within the first minutes of play no matter how long the session runs.

I tend to agree with the bet big and hope stratergy, ill sometimes go a bit crazy doubling up on VP then move to the slots with a nice roll. Youve practically no chance of meeting a 20x WR betting 45 cents.

i made it through the 20x requirement at gaming club playing mostly Isis for .50/spin......finished with $340 balance (though my last spin was $80 hit)

high point was $600.....low point $125

it does take a looooooooooong time though at .50/spin
