Looks like maybe the Silver Tier status may explain things Chris, possibly?

Bronze (like me) probs got the 10%.
 
Be careful with Bonuses!
It is  crucial  that you understand and agree to the terms and conditions of any bonus that you accept. Most of the complaints that come through our arbitration service are bonus related; it would be safe to say that there are tens of thousands of players who have never complained because they realized after the fact that they did not understand or had never read the terms. Nothing in a casino is free – so whenever you see “free” being used, there are stipulations. It is important for you to understand that.

Please check out our Bonus Section that lists the offers given by our Accredited Casinos. No deposit bonuses, welcome bonuses (AKA sign up bonuses [SUBs]), exclusive bonuses, reload bonuses, free spin bonuses...all this and more!

I was silver tier last week. but it seems I'm bronze now.
Oh well, I've got my usual 80% at Casumo. So they'll be getting my deposit tonight. Sorry 32Red

Something again I've not received in a very long time now.

Ain't opening a can of 'tin foil worms' but 99% convinced my lack of offers at certain places is to do with being in life time profit at these particular casinos.

Nice to see NumberColour wash their hands of lowrollers with their level-based bonuses.

So I have to deposit a small fortune for them to grace my screen with a 50% + offer. And God forbid anyone has a withdrawal from them after years of losses, that's enough to cease even the 10%ers with a "bonus ban" to boot (oh no please don't).

Why not keep giving people further reasons to avoid playing there because you know, there's only about 30 other places that don't persecute small players and value their custom.

Time to smell the coffee 32Red, it's not 2005 anymore :rolleyes:

There is actually 100% on 32red today (for UK players anyway), personally I like the new trend of poor bonuses, its saving me a small fortune.

I've been offered the 100% for £50 today & I rarely deposit, not sure what the criteria is here seems just random!

Not for all UK players, apparently it seems to be for players in the silver tier or above.

And, yeah, I have to agree. I've only deposited half as much as I normally would, at my regular casinos last month, and hardly anything at 32Red. Which will be why I dropped from silver tier to bronze. But if their competition has a better offer... The competition is going to get my deposit

Good evening Goatwack.

Coffee smelt and I thought I would chirp in to elaborate on the situation.

Bonus offers are not based on 'depositing a small fortune' and unlike a previous post thought, there are no minimum deposit requirements on the majority of our offers (except the usual casino minimums).

Every account is reviewed regularly and the bonus offered will be calculated based on loyalty, game play, bonuses claimed and lots of other complicated calculations that I don't understand. They are not necessarily linked to loyalty level.

Hope that helps.

Well, much like other lowrollers the weekly 100% DOTD was a strong reason to log on, and something to look forward to.

Then one sunny day I placed a meagre sub- £20 deposit, met wagering, and made a fairly decent cashout. The pop-up banners soon stopped therafter. So it is apparent to me that the loyalty aspect and my limited budget meant I'd generally log on for those 100%ers, but sometimes 50% or even the odd straight cash deposit.

You mention bonus usage but these were prevalent whether I'd lost my previous session or not. One day my gameplay was good and I made a withdrawal, and the bonuses are pulled.

So yes, if accounts are reviewed as stated then I will have to re-deposit an amount equal to or greater than I won before receiving any future offers, so in this case at least £700+ it seems. Which is fine on the surface yet ultimately off-putting as it's penalizing the player for getting lucky once in a while. All other calculations are just filler, as this seems the only important aspect to my complete lack of any bonuses :cool:

I don't know the full segmentation but I am confident I have highlighted the issue in the above sentence. I am pretty sure profit isn't the reason here but congrats on the win.

I'm actually quite happy with the situation. I haven't had that much luck at 32Red recently. In fact a lot of my deposits got eaten faster than anywhere else.
So not having any decent sized bonus offers, means there'll be no temptation to deposit and lose more. :D

Same here, that's what I meant by saving a small fortune. I actually suspected an algorithm had taken over. The bonuses on 32 used to be the same for everyone or per country.

Ok I know there have been similar threads but omg what on earth is up with these very poor bonus offers. It's taking the p**s now - I feel like I am being treated like an idiot!

My thinking is that it's due to a lack of quality competition.
The casinos must figure that they are making just as much money as they would if they were to offer decent bonuses.

I've been told "We can't afford it" and I don't believe it, I have some idea of how much money these guys make and it's just ridiculous amounts.
In my opinion, online casinos could offer 300% 20xWR bonuses and still turn a profit! And that's because there's so many people out there who will just gamble until they have nothing left.

This! Yes there are overheads of course, but it's pretty much a licence to print money. Especially with some of the dross with dire payables that's been released this year. It's just getting harder and harder to win.

I skiped most of the replies but will hover back once my head is straight,

I did read Jm's post about Casumo, I was a regular deposter there maybe like 10 times a week at least, Soon as I get high up on the board it was game over, I used to get like couple set of free spins a week, All dried up untill the time I get 10% depo bonus on shit machine,

Bonus are long gone now days, Casino are going to feel it as I love a bonus just to keep me playing for a few extra spins as you get bugger all for your money now days £350 in last two days with nothing back, deposit between £10 £30 at a time,

There are so many new players hitting the market now days and with the outrageous requirements for new deposits why offer old players anything??
The whole game is becoming a joke, Its not entertaining no more, Even if run into abit of trouble than 99% of the time you may as well speak to the T.V,

I think I will get more enjoyment flushing my notes down the shit hole, After wiping my arss with them, I am not one to moan if lose a few squid but the way the reels are spinning at the minute is a piss take, If casino canot see this than they want there head testing,

Why on earth some sites are getting the shittes games on the market is beyound me, I know why as there money makers, Forget the player, As long as there pockets are lined its all good,

Big Time Gaming?? Big Time RIPOFF joke of machines they are, Who ever passed the test on them machines need there head examined as well. Most likely ask some raspberry nipple from customer service to quickly test them,

What every happens after being crushed the last few days and 95% was straight depo it does make you wonder,

Got to vote with our wallets and purse peeps, If your happy with no bonus than play somewhere that gives back, I know casino room poped up a few times when rushing by thread, But take note albeit wager is 45x and stuck to cetain machines, Its not that bad, Alot of sites are 25x 30x depo and bonus on a shit bonus, And you can withdraw if not touch bonus, I am pissed of with CR my self at the minute but still do good bonus

I think casinos have reached the end of the line with bonuses. It's a transitional period now where they'll give it one last push to get people to take them, such as new sign-ups, before becoming so ludicrously unbeatable that people won't touch them anymore.

I say grab 'em while you can at decent sites because in the next 3-5 years they'll be a distant memory anyway. The only ones seemingly making a concerted effort to appease lowrollers with their 100%ers are Thrills, at least from what I've seen in the last six months or so.

May as well face it, it's time to start looking at the best sites for loyalty and cashback schemes, and currently we have one that's been doing that pretty well for a very long time!

I was very pleased to see 32Red's 100% match offer. While I skipped the 10% ones over the Christmas season, I did make a lot of deposits at 20% and 25%.

I'm not down this year with them by any means, so that can't be all of it.

I rarely cash out the minute I meet WR. I think there's only been once I withdrew less than I deposited. Perhaps more than once if you count a couple of multiple deposit nights where you finally recover some of your losses.

@Goatwack, if you see NOTHING in your lobby, I suggest checking with CS to see if there's an offer. There are times there are glitches.

I've been sicker than a dog this week past, and never got out to load my card, they got my only deposit this week.

Inetbet had New Years offers, including a free chip for depositors.

3Dice doesn't do Christmas bonuses, but rather New Years, and I got a nice 25% match with no wagering.

And that 10% bonus from a casino I don't know? 1x wagering on D plus B is pretty good, at least it would be if it came from a casino I play at. If I deposit $100 and have $110, my expected loss is $5.50 if I play 95% slots. Many casinos have terms that state deposits need to be wagered 1x. Videoslot's software enforces it I believe from threads I've read, but they have waived it for established players. It's definitely in the terms at several accredited casinos.

I'm a careful shopper, and that goes for casinos too. Except for OLG, who offer no loyalty and crap promotions. But they did send me a decent birthday gift and an Xmas bonus, plus one year ago today a $103,240 win, so I guess I'll still play from time to time. Wouldn't if they didn't offer me slots not available elsewhere online.

I got $25 left in my Ecopayz account, not sick for the first time in a week, and I'm going to the highest bidder.

I gotta check my spam folder:lolup:

I used to have them banners pop up whenever signing in. I've queried CS about why this doesn't happen anymore, and they state that accounts are reviewed and offers added correspondingly.

They have all but stopped with any deposit matches, and this includes email offers. It's obvious- I made a cashout disproportionate to my deposit amount and now they've banned me, anything else is just BS.

No loss to me or them, the world keeps turning. But thankyou anyway Jasmine :thumbsup::)

I actually have it happens a couple of times a month at least, or days in a row. It will show if I log into the website, which I hate, and occasionally now that I know this, I'll deposit there and then close and go play the download client.

While it may not help you goat, it may help someone else that did not inquire.
