    Ok, I have seen some asking about bonuses for this new casino. I already played a few times there and thought o myself...aww go ahead...see what all the hoopla is about..as many know I really hate bonuses..but this was such a teaser that I just HAD to check it out..

    So I did...

    I deposited $101 (way over my limit) but for the bonus of 150% and wagering requirements one must get a head start , right?

    I played for about 2 minutes and hit HUGE! (go figure, it had to happen cause I took the bonus didn't it!) Withing minutes I went from $250 to almost $800 betting $2 bucks a round..so I go see how much more wagering I had to do and it was in the THOUSANDS...sheesh..and all for what? to play back money I would have hit if I didn't take the bonus?

    Anyway, I had a great time...I figure that was my donation for the year and played and played...I got it over $1100 and checked my wagering and it did move to about $4000 to wager...again I am thinking..people really do this on PURPOSE?

    So now I am sitting there laughing at myself knowing how dumb this move was FOR ME cause for slots only, I really do not have the patience to just sit and play... I love blackjack a LOT and I sometimes go there to ease the boredom but playing on this bonus has tied my hands (again I say..why did I do this??)

    So I continue my play and my balance is slowly creeping down in a downward spiral.....hurrying to check again and got only $$171 to go to meet the WR.

    So I go back in and play some more and then I dropped another hundred with a few wins in between..and low and behold..I hit the mark ! But I got some odd dollars there and decided to play another $80 thinking maybe it would move up a little but alas...lost that too..so I went to cash out (YES! I did get a few dollars and some ulcers and a few greys) and forgot they require faxback forms..

    Guys...do you all really do this each and every time when taking a bonus??? I am amazed how hard it is to meet the WR..../all I could think of was..I could have withdrawn $800 within minutes of playing but ended up with ONLY $450...not worth it...I am giving up the koolaid...I think this broke me for another few years... :eek:

    Anyone that wants my bonus offers..feel free to take them away! :lolup:

    But really had fun..hit a few good bonus rounds ...and was grateful for them...glad this casino still gives them to us...!

    See my post that I posted today. (slots oasis bonus question) I hit right away too, but not as big as you. At least you got to cash out. I think I am the only person here to never win big, I'm not joking, I honestly NEVER win.

    i will never ever take a bonus when depositing unless it says in black and white 10 times w/r on yadda yadda games and no max cashout, the one and only way i will ever use them, did that years ago and learned my lesson the hard way.......................laurie

    i know what you mean

    i took a 15% bonus from rushmore once without reading the T&C's. i deposited 100$ to get 15$ bounus money and found myself having to play through x25. so this was my deposit + bonus which = 2875$. that is so tight imo. guess it was my fault. i mean rule 101 read the T&C's

    Yup.

    ...And having a scan of a ID and card and utility bill stored on the computer makes the faxback forms a bit easier.

    WTG Silcnlayc! Yea bonuses sucks at time. I said earlier on I would rather place a 50/50 beat on roulette. Hoping to double up and go from there. You got very lucky to even make a cashout. These bonuses are nothing but robbery. Any B&M casino would just make you wager ONCE and thats it. To make someone turn over $100 X 25 times is crazy, Especially on slots! I too would be upset at losing $350 just to meet some outragous requirement. But you came out ahead and learned a valuable lesson. :thumbsup:

    Sure did.....and I sure was lucky..I still do not know how anyone can do this...I am truly speechless for the ones that have this much patience to follow through on such a tedious chore IMO..for such a small return....

    But, I am grateful that I made it and also grateful I do not do this too often...gets expensive buying the dye jobs for the grey one grows during these spells IMO..:lolup:

    That was a brilliant post!! I really wished I put It like that a couple of years ago when I joined here. I dont know how long Ive been telling people its not worth it. Ill take free money with WR (like a no dep bonus) but I dont remember the last time I took and RIval, MG or RTG bonus. Oh yeah, I do remember , my mistake!! I did take one manager bonus that was unsolicited. It was only $10 so I figured, what the heck. Wouldnt you know I hit over $650 on JP pinatas. What? Oh Max cashout was $100. Yeah , I got a $100 free BUT If i would of dep that $10 I would of cashed out for who knows how much. I was almost at $700 when they took it out of my account. PFFFFFt

    And this is why I am still shaking my head and chuckling at myself over my choice of play with bonus...Knowing better does not constitute doing it! :lolup: and one cannot help but give it a "shot" every once in a while to appease the curiousity of others choices ...:D
