I hit a humongous win on brango playing Izombie, Had a retrigger and all zombies across the screen. A few scatters blocked an even bigger win. Bit it paid like 2500.00. Built up to 3k and then had almost 2k removed due to the max cashout rule on deposit bonuses,. Still got 1350.00 on a 40 dollar deposit. So it was a nice win. will I ever take a deposit bonus again? I dunno.. losing that much cash hurts. I had this happen at Casinomax when they first opened as well hitting a 17,000 random JP and only being able to cash out like 3k... You would think I have learned my lesson..

Anyways. Brango paid in 5 minutes. instant Withdrawal. The picture is posted in the winner screenshot gallery.

I think I remember ButterflyBoogie Hitting this same thing when the game was first released. Nice hit.

Nice hit man ! Yea that's only reason I personally dont use bonuses, only bonus I use is when casinos offer cash back which is normally only about a x10. I always do 30 to 100.00 deposits incrementally and I've been able to keep all my mega wins without ever having to roll off a bonus. But nice cash out indeed!

Saw on your screenshot post you're still playing vegascrest, are you using bitcoin? I considered making another deposit there, I know they take around 7% off your withdrawals for bitcoin but they have decent bonuses that are cashable, so whatever, maybe give it another try.

I proceeded through to the deposit page and clicked through so it would send me an address and an amount of coins to send... the exchange rate was 7% off again. So they're charging that 7% both on deposits AND withdrawals, almost a 14% fee in total. For bitcoin of all things, probably the least expensive payment processing method. So I just closed the page.

I think it's been 8-10 so months since I last played there (even longer since my last deposit since it took so long to cash out), so it's unfortunate that after all this time they somehow still haven't found a payment processor that won't screw the players over for ~14%.

I think your issue is not deposit bonuses but the fact you take them on dubious casino's. Dubious enough for me, if they have a withdrawal limit of some X of deposit. There's better places to play that offer constant bonuses without max withdrawal.

You seem to have mistakenly wandered into the America section, where everything is terrible. I don't like bonuses with a max withdrawal limit, but we usually have far more significant things to complain about (as long as the max cashout is clearly marked).

I just find bonuses counter productive, sure it's nice to turn a 50 dollar deposit into 150 bucks and go but if you catch any lightning you're lookin at x30 x40 playthrus that will rock your winnings when the dust settles, that's why I feel its more lucrative to have a little less and take more. I've had so many cash outs where I toss 30 bucks in and start 50 cents and hit for 1000 quickly and walked away with the winnings, or bounce up to 200 or so quick and bump to a 1.50 spin and hit for 2k+ and was able to just take it.

I think America's online slot options do suck but it's not all bad ,I can't complain to much from the hot streaks I've had before but I think the bonus side of it is absolutely rubbish ,just haven't seen one bonus that makes any kind of normal sense. If they are x10 maybe x15 ,maybe...but x30 x40, f that

yeah I use bitcoin. I think it’s 7% on deposits and 10% on withdrawals. They also have vouchers. I try to stick with vouchers for despots to avoid the high BTC fee. I got my withdrawal from vegascrest today so it wasn’t that long of a wait. But yeah it was like 1000 instead of 1100. But the games are pretty lose and you get hours of playtime and no strings attached to the bonus. So if you deposit 100 and get 200 it’s all cashable which makes up for the fee assuming you get up to like 1000. Clearing playthrough is pretty easy.

Had a bad day on their today but usually I get more playtime. The saucify games and rival are pretty good their.

I gotta try Vegascrest again, I just gotta be honest I have yet to have a good sesh with any rival game . Did you have to do any major verification on Vegascrest for cashing out?

It's a tradeoff, there are times when having a bonus will cost you, but there are also times where you would have lost everything but you come back with the bonus money.

One thing to keep in mind though is that the entire online casino industry is basically built around the concept of deposit bonuses. So the rtp of all the slot games is designed around the fact that most players will be using some kind of bonus or promotion some fraction of the time, so the slots can't be too generous or these 100-200% deposit bonuses couldn't be offered. In other words, even if you don't take bonuses, you're kind of stuck paying for them with reduced RTP anyway.

I tried making a post a while back about the possibility of casinos offering some other system or simply games with better returns instead of bonuses, but there didn't seem to be a whole lot of interest even on here so who knows. You would think there would be some niche out there for a casino that offers 97-98% rtp games without all the baggage that comes with big deposit bonuses and similar promotions - and in turn the casino wouldn't have to worry as much about "bonus exploiters" or advantage players - but there didn't seem to be a ton of interest. As I commented lower down in the thread, live casinos go to great lengths to provide a similar method to "pay" players back a fraction of their bets - so apparently it works - but only 1 or 2 online casinos even do anything remotely similar (Thread: Casinos: Offer the option of half-back on the house edge instead of bonuses?). Instead we just get VIP schemes that give you like .1% on slots, completely trivial.

So we're kind of stuck with the bonus system now, and since the casinos are designed from the ground up around it, I feel like I kind of need those bonuses to have a chance. I end up losing more often with bonuses but when I do end up winning, it's usually for a larger amount. So if I'm going to be spending time on the slots anyway, I figure I might as well take the bonus, but it certainly comes with a bunch of hassles. I would definitely like to see some casinos try other systems that don't involve bonuses but it's just not happening.
