Now they only allow slots and video slots towards clearing bonuses. Should scare off bonus hunters at least.:)

Lucky Nugget changed their "Sign On Promotion" from...

Deposit $50 get $200
to
Deposit $50 get $50. :eek:

The T&C's have not changed. 20X dep+bonus. :(

That is a HUGE change in the bonus with NO change in the WR's

Not that I doubted you ;) , but I checked ALL Belle Rock Casinos....
AND you and Chucho are absolutely CORRECT!
Too bad...they had terrific bonuses and were a good group to play at. :(

I think they are still a good group to play. The bonus change was in fact no big surprise, the old system was too good to be true...
But I agree that 20x playthrough on exclusively slots is ridiculous, and I doubt you can attract new players when they recognize that you can't win even with your deposit matched with a bonus.
Maybe we have come to a point where instant payouts and excellent customer service are better incentives than a great bonus offer.

The problem is that if, say, a UK customer wants to play at a Microgaming casino there's no reason whatsoever to choose anywhere other than Ladbrokes (or possibly 32Red - though it still has the 24 hour pending period for withdrawals). The time and hassle taken to get your money anywhere else is a joke.

The only appeal the other casinos have is the bonus. They know that, but most of them now seem to be going down the road of trap-like bonuses where the odds are back in their favour. Understandable from their point of view (though it was nice of them to give a lot of us a second income for a while :D), but they can't expect many customers...

They will soon be reminded of why they introduced the bonus in the first place when they see their internet traffic resembling those at the country side during the wee hours of the morning.

Im sure this is only temporary. They probably were hit hard by bonus hunters lately and applied the emergency breaks. I am sure they are in the process of working out a new set of bonuses that will include more games than just slots.

I can understand them. If they are losing big money through their bonuses, they have to make some changes. They have every right to do so without it being viewed as some slap in the face of their customers. They are a business and have to make decisions that make business sense.

Why do you believe that the change in the bonus is temporary? Off hand I can't think of any casino that changed the bonus program...then after a period of time went back and DECREASED the WR's or INCREASED the bonus. :confused:

For example Fortune Lounge group changed to their present requirements 3 or 4 months ago? Have they changed back? Correct me if I am wrong, but the answer is a no! But then may be the larger groups can survive with their established customer base.

My opinion is that if a casino group cannot support a bit of bonus hunting, I said a bit meaning not too excessive (no one casino can survive if everyone on the planet starts bonus hunting on them), then they are not in a good financial shape anyway.

Better bonuses for loyal players

I have found that Belle Rock casinos are moving to better bonus offers for loyal players. I play at RiverBelle and Lucky Nugget and often get email offers for bonues which have only 10x WR and exclude only the standard stuff plus JOB video poker games. I don't take bonuses very often but these are decent offers.

What do you mean by "standard stuff" ?
I NEVER got any email from them with 10 X WR's.
Can you please copy/paste one of these emails?

Special BelleRock bonuses

Sorry Lanidar. I thought I might have kept one of the recent offers, but I have deleted them. I will post one when I get the next one. The most recent was a 100% match on a $150 deposit with a 10x WR on deposit and bonus.

As for the standard stuff, I believe it is baccarat, sic-bo, and roulette, and then they rule out only the JOB VP games. You can use Aces and Faces or Dueces wild or any other VP, just not the JOB versions. I do not recall if blackjack was in or out.

I have noticed more and more casinos going to slots-only WR - surely a major change against the odds for the player!. I will not take these bonuses.

Thank you for your help. :notworthy
