B-day bonuses are out of fashion?

    I still remember the good ole days, with fantastic birthday bonuses (no WR!) from 3Dice or great gift baskets filled with sweets and champagne from Slotocash, or jewellery gifts from Jackpotcity... Last year all I got was a couple of smallish freechips from older casinos and nothing at all from newer venues. Have anybody ever got a b-day gift or at least an e-card with greetings from guys like Bet-At or Guts? I am not being mercenary :), just curious ;)

    First of all, you have a beautiful nickname!

    Second, from what I experienced so far, birthday gifts are usually given based on activity.
    So if you stopped being an active player at some casino, that casino will only give you a few quids to entice you to come back and play.
    If you are a very active player at another casino, that casino might treat you much much better!
    If you are a non depositor at other casinos, that casino's not going to care most probably.

    Hope it helps! ;)

    My Birthday was in March.

    I use may casinos, Guts, Bet-at, skyvegas, thrills, mr green, betvictor to name a few.

    This year was the first year ever I received nothing for a birthday bonus, and it was the year I have spent the most on the sites!

    I was really disappointed as I used to love getting a nice little birthday bonus.

    Last year ladbrokes gave me 50 quid wager free! This year nada! Last year I counted about 5. None this year. I know its not something they have to do but its a nice touch.. :mad:

    10 years of more or less daily play (small deposits I admit but nevertheless regular) and I have never had anything in the form of a physical gift etc.

    Odd free 10er, 5er or some free spins from a handful of the sites I play(ed) regular, Digimedia looked after me quite well before UK pullout.

    Good B'day bonus at 32 Red before I was BB'ed (£30 bonus in account and points topped up to cashable value :) )

    Ladbrokes in MG days had couple of free bets and £25 bonus in casino.

    Only time I got a 'gift' was not birthday (about a week after ironically) was via Purple Lounge Casino (just before their meltdown) - Lord of the Rings Limited edition DVD box set and a LOTR board game.

    Apparently I'd won a raffle of some description, strange how that was just after a redundancy payout so I'd been depositing bigger values more often :what:

    Hey guys,

    Do you all really like birthday bonuses? We are looking at bonus offerings at the moment and doing a little project on it at TivoliCasino.com

    As an aside our system does not allow us to set up wager free bonuses but for example we could make the birthday bonus significantly lower than standard bonuses? How long should they be valid for? You have to log in on your actual birthday? Any more terms? Previously need to have played for real money for example is standard but within what period?

    so they may be rare now but we are considering adding one! Let me know your thoughts:)

    It seems none of the new 'multi-platform' sites do birthday bonuses. Mine was earlier this year, and while I had made some of them my new favourites, I didn't hear from any of them. Some of them are great at rewarding all year around though. I'm guessing they don't want to commit to sending to all players - in the end you need to earn any bonus. No matter what it's called.

    3Dice, Inetbet and 32Red all came through, even if I hadn't given them much play.

    Happy birthday :thumbsup:

    Hi Keith,

    I think birthday presents are something highly underrated by the casinos. As a regular player you are really happy to get something really "free" back from the casinos. Some wagerfree free-spins (maybe higher denominated) or a nice little bonus (a low WR is fine) is something many player are really enjoying and it's probably also more likely that these player stay loyal for a long time.

    I don't want to live without my birthday presents from casinos.
    If they forget me I forget them too, so yes, it's important.

    I never asks for freebies normally so maybe that's why I expect it to come on my day.

    I won from my birthday gifts last year and that winning streak kept going for almost 6 months. Now I'm waiting for my next birthday :D

    If you feel you earned one on your day you maybe can ask their rep here, but do it before, not after in a disappointed way.
    I hope all casinos read this and understand that no gift is too small that day. The important thing is that they care at least one day every year.

    I can vouch for that.
    Last year (my birthday is in July) I received exactly 1 birthday "pressie" from a certain casino,BUT with a x35WR attached to it.
    So useless to say I did not even come close to make that WR.
    From other casino's I play regularly I did get nothing,nada,zilch.
    I do understand it is not a mandatory thing for casino's to honour all of their clients birthdays but one would expect a small token of appreciation on a birthday,especially when a good and loyal client.
    So I was kinda dissapointed too. ^^

    Hi All!

    As a player myself I completely agree, it's been a long time since I received a bonus on my birthday. With that in mind, our marketing department are working on a birthday bonus campaign as we speak.

    Thank you for the valuable comments! :)

    Rachel @ Trada Casino.

    I want from each casino:

    1. A deluxe hamper.
    2. 1000 chip with 1x wagering.
    3. 2 escort girls for 90 minutes at 21:30 in the evening.
    4. A CS phone call where they all sing 'Happy Birthday' in the background.
    5. All slots I play set on 105% RTP.

    (To the reps reading: use some staggered times regarding (3) please or it could end up silly at 21:30)

    Then I'll stop moaning.

    Yeah, same here. Not a single cent or even a word of greetings from two casinos I spent most money with.

    GUTS:
    Fleur:
    ...was just checkin'. Guts gives out no birthday bonuses?
    Ola
    We do grant some birthday wishes sometimes, yes


    Ah, I wonder what it takes to "be granted a wish", if being a VIP depositor is not sufficient :)


    BET-AT:
    Fleur:
    You have no birthday bonuses policy?
    Agent:
    I need to check


    No, you don't need to check, this answer is self-explanatory ;)

    Mind you, I am not complaining or expecting any freebies, just getting old and feeling nostalgic about the times when casinos at least tried to act as if they truly appreciated your custom :)

    In my opinion they should have checked your account.
    A question like this is rarely, if ever, a general one.
    I can't help but feel they should have picked up on this.

    Well after seeing this thread yesterday I got all excited about today ...maybe.... I thought :D

    Imagine my dismay after logging into over 20 different casino sites and all balances were '£0' and no Free Spins pop ups either :(

    Then again its not until mid June :p:p

    I believe that 32Red add loyalty points depending on your loyalty level tier (between 1000 and 5000) to all their players
