My question is in regards to sign up bonuses. I will start by saying that I am NOT a high roller and I like slots and video poker. I prefer not to take sign up bonuses because I simply don't seem to meet the wagering requirements. I get nervous even playing a $5 hand of blackjack.

Since I don't like to up the ante, does it make better since not to accept the sign up offers, and instead just deposit and play with my own money, knowing that I can cash out at anytime?

**I played at megasportcasino last night. It is a new playtech that I heard pays out very fast. They are offering a 100% signup bonus with wagering requirements of 5x playthrough. I asked live support to remove the bonus and they immediately obliged. I cashed out and on the advice of Freudian, I uninstalled the program so I would not be tempted to reverse the cashin. I immediately received an email from them stating that they had received my request, along with a routing number and that I would be paid in 48 hours. Other players that have played there recently said that their payments were in their netteller accounts in 2 days.* (just thought for those interested, I would add this) I also think their sign on of 100% with only 5x playthrough was very reasonable and wished I had the nerves to be a highroller. I did play blackjack and that helped me to cash out. Also got a wild royal flush and 5 of a kind on the video poker, but unfortunately was only playing max nickel.

So what do u think folks? for small rollers like me, is it better to do what I normally do which is to request the bonus offer to be removed?

All responses appreciated.

You're probably right just to decline the bonuses, tunisianswife. A few weeks ago the terms and conditions at most were such that if you played Blackjack sensibly at low stakes you'd almost always make a profit. Now many are slots only, or have increased the wagering requirements to make it a real struggle, so it's probably not worth the hassle. Also, you don't want to have a wr when you're playing as slots as the only way to give yourself a chance is to be able to cash-in straight away after a big win.

That bonus from the casino you mention is sticky, so when you try to cash-in it'd be removed. The best way to have the odds in your favour for such an offer is to put everything on one hand of BJ (or something similar), but if you're nervous about betting $5 at BJ it's probably not for you!

Just reading that, Vesuvias, I would have to have 10 Ativan in one hand and a full glass of water in the other in order to be able to pull that one off. haha

I'll leave the sticky bonuses to those that really know what they are doing. I am glad that I didn't take the bonus.

Thanks for the reassuring reply.
