BGO Wagering Gone Crazy

BGO used to be one of the best casinos for not putting a time on the completion of a wagering requirement.Then they introduced seven days which soon dropped to five days.The latest offer looks really good,100% up to £1000 with a pretty standard wr of d+bx20.Then a closer look at the t&c's reveals wagering to be completed within 24 hours.So taking the maximum bonus involves playing through £40000 over that time.What the hell is that all about! :what:

Only an 'educated guess' but I think there have been some staffing, particularly management changes at BGO recent(ish)ly

Paul their rep (and ex manager) has moved on, not sure if this has anything to do with things but seems too much of a coincidence!

Their daily offers were good and 'did the trick' by enticing me back as a depositor, at least once a week.

E-mails would arrive daily and now I've not seen one in a fortnight! - Sometimes I like to play a bit and 'save some' for another day or if tired go to bed and play the following afternoon, two things I could not do under this 'new term'

Something has happened their end and although totally unrelated reminds me off the huge management change at Ladbrokes a couple of years back when it went from a great casino to a shit hole!

That is still the one thing I like about MG casinos....they don't put any time table on how long you have to play a bonus. (most don't anyway). Then along come the mega casinos and they start making you play the bonus money through faster and faster. Don't get me wrong I love mega casinos but there is no way I can deposit big and meet the play through in a week or less. I like to enjoy my play not be forced to "hurry" so I make a deadline.

It is just another trap to rob players who do not read all the terms or maybe just miss it. I am one who reads the T&C and still missed it one time and lost everything after having 85% of bonus play through done and ran out of time. I was way ahead and it cost me a lot of money. I HATE these short times given to play the games.

paying bags to paris hilton to do some fake smiles at camera for bgo and that little annoying guy left no money for skrill agreement and common sense bonuses. last time i checked start=stop were deactivated in reel steal and doa and all netent games opened in an unnatural new tab enlarging the image.

He says in his advert" COME AND BEAT ME", i beat him with a nice withdrawl and got bonus banned through it! Certainly strange things happened here since new manager...

:lolup:
thats a bit of overkill..dunover AKA "dunny" the obsenity spouting giant vs. vicious verne AKA menacing mini-me... at least it seemed to be when i was just picturing that in my mind :p

However, if you get a hold of him (or his neck) and if you seem to have the upper hand (no doubt that will happen) then please make sure to get his tiny little black address book, so i can give Paris a few calls...:Angel:

It is a shame that Paul has moved on as he was one of the best reps around when it came to looking at and replying to players' concerns.Does BGO have a new rep on the forum and if so,it would be interesting to hear his take on these new terms.Otherwise I can see BGO losing players hand over fist.

Beat him up twice on the trot 2 x £20 deposits with 2 x £100 W/D = No more bonuses, no more e-mails = no more BGO for me.

I'm sure we ain't alone on this and the post about them losing players is spot on IMO.

Under "Four Deposit Bonuses":

"Players have 14 days to complete the wagering requirements on each individual bonus. If wagering requirements are not completed in full before the bonus expires, any bonus and winnings will be forfeited."

That's two weeks...not one day.

Or is this 100% bonus from some promo they sent to players?

It is indeed from a promo email,got another one today offering bonuses on two successive deposits,50% on the first and 100% on the second but again,wagering to be completed within 24 hours.Maybe they are targeting different players with different offers but I have now had four with the 24 hour stipulation.

Ah okay. Guess I better stay away from those promos then. They are still getting some of my money since I haven't used welcome bonuses yet (thanks to no neteller until recently) :p

You can tell when you are bonus banned here. if you go to the website and it shows you they have a % offer on for that day, put the bonus code in and deposit. Your deposit will go through but your bonus code dont work, and you recieve zero bonus.
I did this, i only deposited £20 for a 100% offer with the bonus code, but i didnt recieve any bonus. i played DOA with my deposit and hit a nice x500 win in the bonus round :thumbsup:

^^ Appreciated ^^

I however wouldn't risk it as I only have a small gaming budget and wouldn't grace these guys with a penny of it, if indeed they have bb'ed me. They seem to have gone downhill fast!
