Until you get a Caddell ban :p

Leo Vegas - Rarely any offers
Casino Heroes - Read too many negative posts
SM and LL - No offers for weeks and weeks
Betat - Usually go to DoA with my last 10er, can't do that here (thought they'd maybe relax this rule with the 'new' DoA)
Nektan - No thanks - Ultimate crooks.

On top of all this then there is the Skrill / Paysafe card thing to watch out for.

Now looking on my Caddell ban as a good thing as its like its prepared me over last few weeks of things to come.

I don't get any offers hardly these days, new casinos not an option really as modern WR too steep on SUB's (until UKGC changes kick in maybe??)

Cash only deposits are busting pretty fast and it looks like my 'tactic' of 14 years is sadly at an end. As much as you all know, I love a good session but am not totally addicted so if / when things get beyond pathetic, I don't feel I'll have too much of a problem giving it neck altogether. :D

PS: It was Laddies with the x4 WR, later changed to x10

That Caddell ban still smarting Jono? Took me less time to get over my marriage - the ban hurt that bad; first cut is the deepest! :p

You should get the SlotsMillion and LadyLucks' bonuses. They don't usually send out emails with the offers. But they're always there when you log in. It's just a matter of remembering which days they do whatever on, although a lot of the SM bonuses are only available between certain times of day. There should be a 50% tomorrow night at SM, but only available between 7pm and 11pm

Its more the case of how much dosh I took off them which will no longer be forthcoming which is causing the pain lol :eek:

It did not bother me too much after a week or so but I will say they stand out from the crowd with their bonus offers compared to pretty much the whole of the rest of the market!!!

I'd make a pun re the marriage thing but wifey reads CM too :p :p

If Betat, Redbet and Leo Vegas can make decent money from it, I dont see how this will change this for everybody to be honest - I do remember Igor (Betat) saying he had to increase the wagering on the bonus due to the cash-out-your-own-cash rule, and most casinos will (should) follow suit.

That makes sense to me and is fair, as long as the winnings are not capped.

In case they are stupid and go down the route of micro bonuses with no wagering, which BGO made a song and dance about but ensured everyone I know to stop playing there, I don’t see much changing for everyone.

That is awesome news - now these casinos will be forced to deal with promos besides bonus BS. I've been preaching about this since around 2000 - good to see the UKGC getting on board with my train of thought.

@SpinUk, if Leovegas and co. were making good money with their parachute bonuses, why have they dried up?

Lots of optimism in this thread, and dunover I know your business model depends on sign up bonuses but I predict lots of "fair spins" offers aka BGO.

Well they are every week still plus a super-spins offer so...

Slotsmillion arn’t exactly short of a few quid or players (1m+) either and they offer them twice a week, one being 100%. So something is clearly working pretty well.

I think people are not aware of how good this actually is.

I mean for us people who have already signed upto most casinos online and used pretty much all of the welcome offers available. We wont really see it unless we get ongoing promotions at the few casinos we seldom play at.

Like for example VS. They dont offer match bonuses as promotions. They do have a welcome offer but they do not give them out every week or month like others do.

Leovegas on the other hand seldom do match bonuses for their regular loyal players. They used to do them about once a week then they made them once every 2 weeks. Then once a month but now they seem to be happening like once every 3-6 months. Like I had one for the first time from them about 5 days ago ish. And before that must have been at least 5 months.

So yeah the only people that will see the benefit is the new players to the said casinos who enforce the new standards set out by the UKGC. I mean I just hope it wont mean the end of the match bonuses because I do like to take them on occasion when I get them, Or find a new casino with a nice one and not to steep wagering requirements or rules attached to them like max cashout etc etc. But I never ever deposit in those casinos with max cashout rules anyway as I find that as to roguish.

They should though take notice of Leovegas and Slotty Vegas bonus rule where you play with your real money first. And if you win with that you can then just withdraw. And in turn that then forfeits your bonus money.

This model is a good model and I always thought other casinos should follow suit, but they never did.

But either way it is going to be an interesting few months to see what casinos come up with now though :)

if it gives less play time I don't think it's a good thing as I enjoy playing for longer.
Don't get me wrong it's great if you win but I also enjoy the time spent wagering.
I wonder if it will cause problems along the way

Has 32red's dish of the day match already gone. I could only see some free spins and even then it doesn't say how many you get or how much you need to deposit.

Am I the only one who enjoys real money tied in to wagering ? Sure its nice to play on real cash and withdraw if you get a huge win but most of the time if I get a moderate win I want tokeep playing but if it's real money I then feel bad if I lose it , Whereas if its tied into wagering I know I have to continue playing so theres no worries about whether I should stop and cashout :p I have longer and more enjoyable gambling sessions with the occasional big cashout if I complete wagering

Well.. slotsmagic will struggle with this then, they've gone soo downhill latelty anyway with their constant bonus updates. I received this around New Years.

"If you receive Free Spins in conjunction with a deposit offer or purchase Free Spins using your Real Money balance you must play the free spins before playing with your available funds (Real Money and Bonus Balance alike). Failure to comply with this may result in any winnings being removed."

In addition to these latest ones, note the 60x wagering!

"
  • Any winnings accrued playing Free Spins offers will be added to your account as a Bonus.
  • Unless stated otherwise in the promotion offer, Bonuses (including winnings from Free Spins) given with a deposit offer carry a wagering requirement of thirty (30) times the total amount, e.g. If you deposit €10 and obtain a €10 bonus, you would have to wager 30 times the aggregate amount, in this case being €20 (deposit + bonus). If a Bonus (including winnings from Free Spins) is not awarded as a part of a deposit offer Or if the total bonus amount (from bonuses and Free Spins winnings) is greater than the deposit amount made to claim the offer, the offer will carry a wagering requirement of sixty (60) times on the bonus amount only.
  • Standard wagering terms: bets placed in any game except Slots and Scratch games do not count towards the wagering requirements.
  • Mixed wagering: 10% of bets placed in non-Slots or Scratch games count towards your wagering requirements.
  • Special Mixed wagering: 50% of bets placed in non-Slots and Scratch games count towards your wagering requirements. Special Mixed wagering is only available on special occasions and to players of certain statuses. "

Good, maybe we will see some Casinos rewarding loyalty more rather than blowing the promo budget on sign ups.

In my head
This is good news if the casinos respond to it in a positive manner and not find new and more inventive ways of screwing the player. I do like bonuses but most of my deposits go to Videoslots. Bonuses have gotten far too complicated over the last few years. I do like the Betat, Vera John and Slotty deposit bonus structure and would like to see more casinos adopting this option. I don't like the extra spins deposit bonuses because for some reason I never win very much on those and some casinos have huge wrs attached to them so cashing them out is very difficult.

Anyway it will be interesting to see how it impacts the rest of Europe. I will say one thing though if bonuses do go away then many casinos will go out of business unless the step up their game with cashout times and player loyalty.
