When will casino's promotion managers learn to do simple mathematics?

I received a promo email from Grand Bay. I know they are a good casino,
I just mention the name because the promotion is frustrating... And also I m
aware that many other casinos do the same mistakes...

So, here is the promo :

Get a Double Delight!

You can get up to \$100 FREE this Wednesday with
Casino Grand Bays Believe it or Not!

Make a purchase of \$20 or more on Wednesday,
30 November 2005, between 6pm and midnight (EST), and you
are guaranteed to get an extra 25% up to \$50 free!

But that's not all...

Wager \$20 or more in Cabin fever and you will receive
another bonus of 25% up to \$50 FREE!

Thats a total BONUS of 50% up to \$100!

Let's do the maths...

25% up to 50\$ plus
25% up to 50\$
--------------
50% up to 100\$

Are you out of your mind??????

The worrying thing is - I don't think they are mistakes.
I find it very hard to believe the people running these promo's are really that stupid - my view is that they're hoping that the 'average punter' is!

They are just trying to con people by making their promo's sound better than they actually are.

I could be wrong but I don't see a mistake here.

Deposit \$200 get 25% bonus = \$50

wager \$20 on cabin fever and get another 25% on that purchase making 50% in total.

amazing world of mats

what do you have to bet, to get those 100?

50x4 (25%)=200

and again:

50x4 (25%)=200

so you get 100 in bonus for a bet of 400. That makes a pathetic - guess... 25%

On purpose KK heh? Maybe.
There seems to be a school of thought with this.

There's the beautiful "up to" that's written in 6 point letters in the shadow of the half screen 50\$!! or whatever.

Player deposits.
Pleyer gets not what he expected.

The logic being - I believe- "gotcha" .

Caveat emptor is a tip for a back alley , not an established industry.

You know what - you're only bloody right!

You only make one deposit, which you get a bonus on, then you wager that deposit to get more bonus.

So you can earn \$100 bonus off a \$200 deposit = 50%!

Now who's the stupid one!

Can someone please apologise to the casino for me while I go wash this egg off my face...

Might as well make it a 10 grand bonus.Their random rigged software sucked up my money in a matter of minutes.Same with their sister casinos Roadhouse reels and Bella Vegas.Same degree of "randomness at all three casinos.As in Hoover.
