Hey everyone....I have a hard time finishing my playthrough at RTG casinos, so I rarely take a bonus.

Are there any tips to making it through?

When I say hard time, I mean I barely make it through a few hundred dollars of 1,200 playthrough.


Any tips would be greatly appreciated. (I am a low roller and only play slots)

when i used to make a playthrough i would get a sheet of paper write on the right hand side what i was starting out with and below how much i had to wager. i would then start out on a game with a low j/p and start with a 1.00 or 2.00 bet and count in my head each spin until i hit free spins or changed games.then i would write down exp.60 x 2.00 =120.00 and so forth. i would increase my bet only if the games seemed to be playing good. i like making playthroughs this way cause it makes you use your mind and you have to keep up the count yourself. you can get a clicker or there may be a better way of doing it but this way i have it down on paper and when i hit free spins and so on and if its written down you can always quit for awhile and then come back to it. goldbeard and penguin power and sunken treasures were some of my favs. on trying to get through the w/r ,just dont hit a jack pot while doing this it is a sickening feeling, i know, been there done that. :)....laurie

I don't think it's just you. When my husband and I started playing RTG casinos a few years ago we could grind out the WR of $6000 to $7500 and cash out the max (yes they were rogue but we didn't know it at the time i.e., Club Player and Cirrus) and quite frequently. Then it all came to a grinding halt. $1.00 bet, 5 Achilles, a $500 win and many other wins and still came up short. Haven't had any luck in two years!:eek:

Well I'm glad I didn't take a bonus today, had a few small wins (posted in screen shots) and cashed out twice, once for $50 and once for $60 and still have $50 to play with!

It's easy, just go for it..

Make your deposit, BET HUGE, and hope to inflate your balance to 2x (or more) of what you started with. Then drop down to smaller bets and just while away the time, with much better chance of keeping some of the money.

The giant downside, of course, is that sometimes your initial deposit will evaporate in about 60 seconds.

One way to combat this is to break your deposits into multiple smaller ones. If the casino lets you deposit multiple times with a bonus, then piece of cake. If not, you'd need to either find another casino, or just stop playing.

Why not give your brain a rest & just use autoplay? :confused:

The only down side to this with RTG is that when the feature hits, the number of spins you've had so far vanishes, so you have to make sure you note how many spins used as soon as you get the first 1 or 2 scatters needed.

As to meeting playthrough - as others have said; a good slice of luck is essential!

No it does not vanishes.
Just dont touch the mouse dont click and it will, after the feature, restart from the number of spins you have already played.

Required playthroughs can vary quite a lot with RTG casinos. Playthrough can be as little as 0xB (no playthrough) or as high as 180xB.

When completing a playthrough, two things to be aware of are house edge and variance. If the bonus is significantly larger than wagering * house edge (per unit wagered), then things are more simple. The lower the variance, the greater chance of completing the wagering. Choose small bets and/or low variance games. If bonus is smaller than wagering * house edge, then initially choose larger bets and/or higher variance games until reaching a target gain. Switch to smaller bets and/or lower variance games after reaching the target.

Note that you will have a far better chance of completing a wagering requirement, if you try some table games, instead of just slots.

I have no idea how to play table games :oops: I know how to play blackjack, but that isn't fun to me. I play video poker a lot, but slots are my favorite.

Most table games are easy to learn. If you play a few hands in practice mode, you'll probably get the hang of it. 21-games and VP-games are 2 of the 3 available genres with an expected loss per unit wagered that may be below 1% (not counting craps, since rarely counts towards wagering). The 3rd is Caribbean Hold'em. I have an optimal strategy calc on my site for this game.

I always set my autoplay to 'Stop on Feature' so I get a chance to see what I've won - so for me it does vanish.

But you are right, if you don't make this selection you will see it! :thumbsup:
