Hi.
I have been playing at inetbet for years. I would always play there tempting tuesday bonus day. I would use what ever bonus coupons they would have each month. With inetbet there was never a great amount of bonuses. I would even get Manager bonuses each month. I didn't know that there was a problem using there bonuses.
I got cut of from entering anymore coupons last month. They told me it was because i didn't put enough of my own money. I never had a problem for years of playing there. I also lost a lot of money because of the bonuses , because I would hardly ever make the playthrough and a lot of times I wish i put in straight money. Did there policy change, I did cancel my account with them because I felt like all the years i played there they just didn't care. I join jackpot capital and they are great.
Anyways did I do somthing wrong.

Hi.
...

IMO - No, you did not. Or it doesn't surprise me at all, when we talk about InetBet & these kind of cases. They just don't understand, what entertainment mean, especially if you are "low roller", like me.

And from terms:
Bonuses are made available on a regular basis at iNetBet, these are offered as a reward to all our regular and loyal players. However any player found to be availing of these promotions, not in the spirit in which they are given, may be subject to exclusion.

I understand this (well, most of it), but how on earth player will know, what is OK and what is too much?!

And sometimes its feel like... they treat players based, who is the CSR (that replied to you, or if you get the reply at all), what kind of day he/she have, etc, because i have seen many topics about these issues and talked with friends.

And finally, try example 32Red Casino, and say, when they will give a similar email.. like you got from InetBet! Never?! 32Red - The Best :thumbsup:

(my 2 cents)

No, you didn't do anything wrong. Some casinos tend to bonus ban you if you win to much, take to many bonuses, only play with a bonus or whatever. If you like to play with bonuses I would advise you to find another casino to play at. If they "don't like your way of playing", don't play there imo.

32 Red don't bonus ban you if you are playing slots no matter ho far ahead you get (wink wink vinylweatherman) They have been offering a lot of bonuses lately, so they could be worth looking at if you like Microgaming.

Thanks. I did find another casino. Jackpot Capital. So far they seem to be fine. But who knows after a few years.

Hi zbrent,
I checked into this and you have not made a deposit since last December but were wanting to claim free chip coupons.
As per the rules these can only be claimed by players who have deposited in the past 3 months. Hence the reason you could not claim them.
If you started depositing again you would be eligible.
Best Regards
iNetBet Promos

While I occasionally play without a bonus most of the time I take a bonus including the weekend triple trio and $10 challenge not to mention the tempting tuesday bonuses and the monthly match bonuses. They have still not denied me any bonuses and they only time they did so was when I won a small ND gift from a contest but at that time I hadnt deposited for over a month so I have no problems with that. Of all RTG casinos, I am only bonus-banned at Titan but it is not something I will live to regret.

Even if Inet does start to cease offering so many bonuses I think they are perfectly within their rights to do so. Some players may leave and only time will tell whether they have made the right decision.

Not doubting you but can you kindly confirm whether this player is still eligible for deposit bonuses in the meantime.

He has not made a deposit in 7-8 months, so I do not think this guy is so interested in a deposit bonus ;)

I'm curious....what do you mean by "they took my 6 deposits before I found out" ?

Not sure what you're getting at there.

Jackpot Capital/JC have a higher wagering requirement of 30x whilst InetBet is 20x so the latter is certainly better in that regard.

These 2 bonuses are different in that the latter only allows slot play. Both have cashable bonuses though:thumbsup:

I deposited like 6 times with no wins .then I got the email that I was bonus banned

Well that's a bit different from what you were inferring, to be fair.

It's odd they would ban you after 6 deposits. Did you take bonuses with those deposits? If not, then you have a case IMO. If so, then I don't see how they have mistreated you. It's not like they told you to deposit 6 times and receive a xx% cashback, and then told you they weren't going to honor it.

On a brighter note, at least the OPs bonuses weren't completely stopped. Just cancled. :p

I have been cut of since about march. From dec to march I didn't have much time to play. I always used a coupon with a deposit. with the free chips There was never a heck of a lot of free chips to use so i don't beleve i used them that often. Like I said before I played with this stile of play for years and now theres a problem. When I asked why i was banned they said I didn't play with enough real money. I don't know what that means when I need to put real money in to get the small percentage coupons.

It means that the amount of money YOU deposit is not a comparable ratio to the amount you have received in bonuses and free chips. Try making a few deposits without using any type of bonus and I'm sure they will start the bonuses again. They just want you to wager personal money instead of looking for freebies all the time. At least they have given you a warning and not just let you keep on playing the free chips until you've won and then they deny winnings (like the Virtual group does). Which would result in another multi-page bitch and moan fest about how they rip off players...

oh and to make it clear i do put money without bonuses. for years 6 for sure. it was only in the begining of this year that i played with equal bonuses . but i stll put in more than what you get for a bonus. so there was loyalty for inetbet for the previous years . but its not what you have done, its what you have done lately . anyways i'm happy with the other casino's so im over it.

No, you didn't do anything wrong. Some casinos tend to bonus ban you if you win to much, take to many bonuses, only play with a bonus or whatever. If you like to play with bonuses I would advise you to find another casino to play at. If they "don't like your way of playing", don't play there imo.

32 Red don't bonus ban you if you are playing slots no matter ho far ahead you get (wink wink vinylweatherman) They have been offering a lot of bonuses lately, so they could be worth looking at if you like Microgaming.

There are a few circumstances that 32Red consider worthy of a bonus ban. Each bonus is "invite only", and you have to receive the email to be certain you are eligible. You can always check with CS if you believe you are eligible, but have not received the email. It is often the case that the email arrives a while after a promotion goes live in the lobby.

32Red WILL bonus ban you temporarily if you ONLY play when they have a bonus, and with a recent sharp increase in the number of bonuses 32Red offer, this is more likely to happen because there are fewer days when no bonus is on offer.

32Red like to see some play when no deposit bonuses are on offer, and on a variety of games, not just Blackjack and only when a 100% bonus is there for the taking.

If the OP hasn't deposited since December, this would get them a 32Red bonus ban, not just an iNetBet one. They would be told by 32Red support that they needed to deposit some money without a bonus to show that they were not ONLY interested in "bonus bagging".

Participating in the 32Red Slotsmeister would be a start, as this would be a sign that the player was interested in other types of promotion where there was no guarantee of them getting a bonus prize at the end of it.

iNetBet DO have a term that specifically covers the OPs case, and that free chip codes can only be claimed on "active accounts", and "active" means "having made a deposit within the last x months", which was 6 months last time I looked. It's now July, and 7 months since the OP last made a deposit, thus they have been excluded from free chips as it is now more than 6 months since they last deposited.

iNetBet will also bonus ban players who ONLY play when a decent bonus coupon is available.

iNetBet apply the rules regardless of whether the player is ahead, or has lost overall. The same applies to 32Red, which is why they DON'T bonus ban players that have simply been lucky enough to get ahead.

I was expecting a bonus ban after that massive win 3 years ago, but it never happened. Almost every other casino WOULD have booted me off the bonus list for it.

There are plenty of other places to play, but the recent loss of the US market, and the global recession, means that it is MORE likely that players will find themselves bonus banned.

The surge in the number of casinos closing, or going bust, shows how this has bitten them much harder than they would like to admit. Others are clearly struggling to stay afloat, and some may well be forced to close in the near future.
