    Hi Gang

    I received a bonus offer from a reputable casino, offering me a 500% bonus on a $30 deposit ($150 bonus). Wagering is 35x D+B on slots only and bonus is non-cashable. No max cashout rule applies.

    Would YOU take it up?? (assume that being paid if you win isnt an issue)

    If not, why not?

    I would be interested in some points of view :)

    As always it depends on your expectations Nifty.

    If you enjoy slots and play as much for entertainment as the slight chance of winning then you could get an awaful lot of play low rolling for your $30 but the chances of winning would be very slim.

    $10,500 is an awful lot of playthrough if you want a realistic chance of winning on slots and the only chance you would have is to play high stakes and hope you get very lucky with a big hit quickly.
    You could then adjust your stakes accordingly.
    You will have to be lucky more than once though to meet that WR.

    Heck yes, I would. Although the 35X d&b is high it seems that I am seeing that figure more and more on these large bonuses and they are always accompanied by a max cashout. Since there is no max cashout involved I would think that 35x is fair enough. I enjoy bonuses if funds are low and they give you an added arsenal so to speak with which to snag that jackpot. If the casino is just sucking your bankroll dry then leave it for another time when things may be looser. I have had bonus/deposit money in some accounts for weeks and slowly play it into substantial withdrawals. If you feel comfortable with the casino reputation and are aware of all the T&C's then have a go and good luck. But remember that old woodworking adage
    "measure twice, cut once" and re-read and get a copy of all the requirements. :thumbsup:

    Let's see what other punters have to say.

    If I were bored I might do it. It's only $30. But I wouldn't make a habit of playing 35x slot bonuses (those small deposits can start adding up).

    I would take the offer too, play $4 or so per spin at a high variance slot, hoping to hit a decent win. If I came ahead ca. $200 at least (after subtracting the non-cashable bonus), switch to a low variance slot and "run" it home.
    You're only risking $30 to play with $150 of the houses money ;)

    I'm pretty much with swieger here, though I wouldn't roll quite so high of course!
    Would definitely take it up if I had the time or could not afford to take up a more 'meaty' offer.
    It's only a very small deposit.
    As it's a phantom bonus and presumably RTG I would be totally gob-smacked to even finish the WR, let alone make any profit.
    I would just treat it like fun play, and if a miracle happened it would be an extra bonus! :rolleyes:

    The WR is $6300. So you're going to need a huge win ($1000). So $5 bet (at least, unless you're doing it just for the amusement of watching the reels spin), then try to coast thru with small bets.

    If you try to win some money on this offer and to give you the best chance to be ahead after the WR, you should bet even more, like 20$ per spin... :thumbsup:

    Frenzy

    Play Fruit Frenzy at 5 to 9 lines. If you hit the bonus round, the bet is ramped up to all 25 lines. This tactic increases the variance, and a good bonus round could yield $500 or more. The chance of getting the bonus round per spin is reduced, but is a good way to attack this kind of bonus.
    Most other RTG slots tend to give poor bonus rounds, so even hitting a few at $5 per spin could still leave you hard pressed to finish the WR and have something worth cashing out.
    If there is no max cashout, a random jackpot is no problem.
    Another tactic might be to low roll at 20c and leave it on all day and night hoping to hit a random jackpot or go bust. (As was the method used recently to scoop over $10,000 RJ by leaving a 0.20 bet running all day - winner screenshots).

    Don't normally like slot bonuses, but I'd play it up big until I quintupled by starting chip count (to about 900), and the low-roll it to finish the play through.
