weren't they one of the first casinos to get a license from the Isle of Mann? If I remember correctly, they launched a casino called Clubfiore.com

Seems like they're not in the IOM anymore and I guess, have changed software (I can't remember what clubfiore used, but I doubt it was Playtech)

I just found out that I have to wager 20 times the 10 bonus in order to be able to cash out plus even if my account reach 0 the requirements will carry over to the next deposit.This casino is a joke.Too bad and I like their software :oops:

You're right - it was orginally Club Fiore, licensed through Action Online Entertainment under the Isle of Man along with I think six other big names with land casino connections that all subsequently moved on.

Fiore changed its name (but probably has the same ownership) but was originally I think owned by Crospoint Venture Partners IOM Ltd and is now licensed in Khanawake I believe. The software was GET, but around the time of the move that changed to Playtech.

I dont understand. Are you calling this casino a joke because of the wagering requirement of their bonuses or because you heard something about them that makes you think that? It baffles me how someone can say a casino is no good based on their bonus terms. Just dont claim a bonus and deposit your own money to play, after all that is what gambling is all about. Ive never claimed a bonus ever, so I have never really had a problem with a casino, I never have to worry about my money being locked in, and I never have to worry about wagering requirements. All this for a measley $10.00, I think you can wrangle up $10.00 from somewhere to play if you want to gamble so bad. Deposit $10.00 of your own money, play, and if you win make a withdrawal of your winnings and deposit. If they screw you around, and they deny your withdrawal for any reason come back here and post that they are a joke and I will agree. I bet you would not have to post anything.

I don't know anything about the casino - i haven't played it, so I won't comment. However, I think anyone that offers such a small 'bonus' with such out of proportion wagering requirements are belittling their audience.

I agree with what you say though - simply don't ask for a bonus. The difference here was that this promotion was sent to land-based casino players who may be unaware of the type of bonuses available online and how it all works - and are therefore, in my opinon, being somewhat misled.

Oh I see, I did not know that is what they did. Before I knew anything about online casinos and bonuses I probably would have taken free money if I was offered. For people who are online casino players, and know everything about bonuses and the wacky wagering requirements that go along with them, as well as the fact that almost everyone has trouble withdrawing from a casino when they claim a bonus, it just boggles my mind why people still claim them. Then when they do claim the bonus, and get the hassles, which they know will happen, they then come and complain about it.

There is also a 30/30/720 sign-up bonus. I am tempted to try out this casino, too, I was just hoping to find some information on customer service and how promptly they pay.

I called the casino a joke because even if you have 0 the requirements carry over to the next deposit.Its not about the 10 bonus but its about of the carrying over thing.Any casino doing this I consider it as a joke and stop playing there.This is like they want to belittling the player for me.

Any casino that carry's over wagering requriements is a joke. For example with Gold Club Casino. Lets say that the 1st of every month I buy a jumbo vile of crack, smoke it and go to play at Gold Club. The 1st month and every month for the next 5 months I deposit $100 and get a $100 bonus. I place one $200 bet and lose 5 months straight. Then I stop smoking crack, and think about making a 6th deposit. But now that I quit smoking crack I realize that I will have to play through $14,600 in wagering before I can cashin. Good think I quit smoking crack

This is not true. You can cash out your balance minus the bonus any time, it could be your deposit AND winnings, for example . This is what I keep doing for months, I win $30-$50 and cash out with the bonus deducted from the withdrawal money. I do this because my aim is to win i.e. to withdraw more than I have deposited, not to cash out the bonus.

You can treat bonuses at Boss Media casinos as phantom bonuses and not worry about WR.
