Hi everyone! Just a message to warn people so they don't get screwed over like I did.

Deposited 200 Euro without a bonus and then got an email to claim the welcome bonus by clicking a button. Sadly I claimed this bonus.

I played some games... up and down and eventually went into 3 euro into bonus money when I hit a bonus on high voltage.

1 euro spin, 2670 win.

Fantastic.

Bonus was over and got a popup that as per terms and conditions I can only win 500 euro.

Now I'm stuck with 4000 euro wagering and you cant even win over 500. This is horrific. What a horrible feeling in my stomach! This makes me super angry.

I know people here will say its my fault for not reading the terms and conditions etc but I actually did read them. I read how much the wagering was etc. I did not read every single letter.

Wow this feels so horrible i don't know what to do.

I cant even withdraw the 500 euro. All money is in wagering and I cant even use the winnings for the wagering. I am so upset.

I don't understand the problem. If you didn't want to be held to the bonus conditions, then don't take the bonus.
Look at it this way, if you hadn't taken the bonus, you wouldn't have hit the bonus and would have had zero to cashout. At least with the bonus, you have a chance at cashing out 500.

i suppose yes! sorry - it just feels horrible seeing a win of 2670 and only getting 500. Thank you guys for making me understand it better.
I know 888 are shit - but I wouldn't even expect this from them! :eek:

I've just read their terms and that is what it seems to say - but I still don't believe it.
It makes no sense and I can't remember seeing a bonus like this anywhere before.

So this was your first deposit there?
You claimed the Welcome Bonus of 100% up to €100, lost your €200 deposited funds, then won big while using bonus funds?

Well I suppose you should be grateful really - given the choice of losing €200 or making €300, I know which one I would prefer! :thumbsup:

No need for apologies. I agree its still a shocking limit.

All Aspire brands changed a few weeks ago to the same limit and a few others seem to be doing the same.

NY Spins are the same, also limiting bonus winnings to £500.

For me I don't really mind the £500 if it's only a twenty quid deposit.
As, for aspire I wouldn't touch them the amount of games which don't count for wagering or the list they have at 50% or all netent disallowed is just a piss take

While i have read some horrible posts about that casino im sorry to say this but read the terms and conditions of bonuses CAREFULLY. This includes the fine print. I know many of us dont we only look at playthrough....But its important to read them.

This is the reason i never take a bonus. Dont wont to worry about wich term and that and this i broke. and with my luck it wouldnt suprise me if i hit a 78000x if i took a bonus and then the casino will screw me. I am a type of player with a luck like this.. If it rains 99 vagina and 1 penis... Penis will hit me on my face... Sorry but just joking❤️

And i have done it. At the time there was a specific casino which i will not name here cause its already on a rant post they got their accreditation pulled by Casinomeister, i logged in played with a bonus and hit 10 different jackpots BUT my maximum cash out due to the bonus was only $200.00. The odds of hitting any of the jackpots are astronomical so to hit 10 different jackpots on 10 different slots told me TOTAL scam and i was pissed and the company slots were deleted.

Feel sorry for u bro...I never use bonus most if the time the slots will double your money anyway so why use a bonus with wagger and 100difrents rules.

It's not really hidden away though is it? This is from the landing page, you can't miss it unless you cant read a couple of lines of text

well he needs to deposit to wagger with cash only theres a real chance he could lose over 1000£ trying to win £500 only ,he has a point as he said he cannot use winning to wagger , so he will have to deposit its the terms so you should read but i understand his point , so although you say he got a chance your right but he needs to pay for that depositing unless what hes saying is wrong
