    Usually I only play tournaments and decided to play some slots last night. Minimum for 20 line is now $1, 25 line is $1.25 per spin. I contacted chat and was told no one else had mentioned it and to download the latest addition of Adobe.:what:

    So I did, restarted computer, and nothing changed. Went over to INetBet and can still bet .20/.25. Went back to chat and was told I didn't have to play all the lines - that would reduce the spin amount. True but that's not how I want to play or should have to play. Emailed the manager and waiting for a response.

    Natasha: Hello, how are you today?
    Tim: Ok, thanks
    Tim: I was talking to Alex a few minutes ago
    Natasha: Which game are you playing please?
    Tim: Enchanted Garden
    Natasha: Ok and what seems to be the problem?
    Tim: The minimum bet is $1
    Tim: I can't lower it to say .20
    Natasha: one second let me check
    Tim: The down arrow is not lit up
    Tim: ok
    Natasha: Ok unfortunately the minimum bet is $1, but you can decrease this by not having all the lines highlighted So you have 20 lines, you can say bet only 10 lines and this will bring the bet amount down
    Tim: That's not a good option
    Tim: Why is it now $1 minimum
    Natasha: This is the software i am afraid
    Tim: I just checked at INetBet and they had updates but I can play for .20
    Natasha: All casinos are different Tim
    Tim: So Club World has decided to make the minimum bet $1?
    Natasha: Unfortunately this is the minimum bet on the software i am afraid, but as i said you can decrease the amount of lines, if you do not wish to bet $1
    Tim: Can you give me the managers email? I don't like this at all.
    Natasha: You can send this too This email is not visible to you. and we can pass this onto the correct department.
    info: Your chat transcript will be sent to xxx at the end of your chat.
    Tim: Ok, I'll do that. Thanks for the info.
    Tim: bye

    Well, that sucks. It doesn't seem like a good "business" decision to me. I'm sure there are plenty of people who play 1, 2 or even 3 coins only. To have to be forced to make the larger bet will drive people away, just my opinion...

    Obviously there will be mixed emotions about the minimum being raised. I myself am all for the increase. My average bet is between the $2-$5. So i do like the fact that they would increase to a higher minimum. This would mean that the casino could be advertised as a higher stakes type of casino. But there really is no reason for me to go on any further becasue i just checked a few games and its like normal on mine. Can bet 20 cents with all lines and 25 cents with all lines. But great idea to increase the minimum at one of their casinos.

    By the way I just downloaded loose caboose just to make sure it isnt certain slots. My minimum bet on Loose is 25 cents with all 25 lines. Thats so strange that your minimums are raised. I see in your screenshot that you cant lower it anymore. Have you won a ton of money there and they want to get it back?

    I am playing High Noon right now Loose Caboose has a .25 minimum. Enchanted Garden is the typical .20 minimum.

    Must be personal to you??

    No, it is not just a personal thing to All4greed, my games are set the same way too. Here is the screenshots, notice I can not lower the bet to play the 29 cents I have in my account.

    LH

    Edit: It appears to only be at ClubWorld. I can change my bets to 20 cents and 25 cents at LuckyRed, HighNoon and Manhattan slots.

    Just checked at Aladdins Gold, and its still the same as it was, any betsize from 0.20 and up, no changes.
    Looks like they only make ClubWorld a highroller casino.

    Now if anyone can explain to me why this is a great idea (BMWSTACK?) I'd be delighted.
    The games are random, right?
    So why is it 'good' for you highrollers that lowrollers cannot play anymore?:confused:

    Ok, I am really confused. I am playing at Club World Casino right now as I type this. Minimum bet for example for Enchanted Garden is .20, Loose Caboose is .25 same as it always has been.

    Thats really weird!
    I lost my accountdetails from CW long ago, so I don't have them installed, never took the time to retrieve them as I play at High Noon, Aladdins Gold and Manhattan slots already, so I cannot check myself.

    All4greed, looks like you're no longer allowed to be a lowroller..
    I would send a PM to CWC Martyn if I were you, I'm sure he can clarify what happened and discard the changes.

    Just checked my CW account (downloaded on my computer) and here is a pic of Loose Caboose.

    I would definitely send off a PM to either Tom or Martyn.

    Well, shoot, pic is to little to see but it's $.25 per spin. All other games are the normal spin amount.

    i just downloaded enchanted on clubworld and i still have minimum bet of 20cents on 20lines.

    The reason I like the idea of higher minimum bet is simply more money being rolled in. The more money rolled in the greater the chance of hitting a bigger hit. It is easier to get more money rolled in with higher bets. This is all just personal preference. I like to bet higher and am more confident with more people betting higher,

    It's just you - my Enchanted Garden game on CWC is still customizable down to 1 cent, if I wish.

    Wow...I have not seen anything like this before (if this is the case). Looking forward to getting to know what has happened in this case

    By the way, I always play with all lines. For me, it would not be an option to play with lesser lines. Does anybody really play with lesser lines sometimes?

    Why would they do that to some players and not others. I just logged in and I still have the same things as All4greed. I will send a PM to Tom and see what he says. It is only this way at ClubWorld, not at the others I have still installed.

    rainmaker: Some people do this to increase the varriance of the game. In other words, it is much harder to hit a winning combination, but if you do, the payout would be much higher. I have tried it myself some times, but never had any success with it. But I think that is the motivation behind playing fewer lines.

    I just checked CW and mine is the same as ever.

    Those of you who've had minimum bets raised, can you post where you're from? Maybe it's on a location basis?

    Smart business decision by ClubWorld.
    This way they make more $ off the patron.

    They may find out later that they have done more harm than good to their business. :cool:
