    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!

    We have made it easier to get your Double Delight!

    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.

    still progressing
    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.
    Player asks for bonus.
    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! :oops:

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