www.goldclubcasino.com has changed their wagering requirements from 25x the bonus to 40x the bonus. That is a major jump for them to now require almost twice as much action as before, but at the same time not offering a higher bonus amount. Maybe they will turn off the "switch" more, otherwise, personally speaking, I will not play their as I would rather play at Intercasino who, for the moment, only requires 25x the bonus or Casino 365 who, while not offering a $100 match bonus, does not flip the switch like Gold Club. Has anyone else noticed the difference between the Black Jack at Gold Club and Casino 365? In other words, how often does Gold Club let you win 4+ hands in a row compared to Casino 365? I have played at both casinos every month for years now and it is like night and day, you can very rarely win 4+ hands at Gold Club and never cash out a large win. If Gold Club is going to raise their wagering requirements, should they not give something in return? $200 match bonus, $300 match bonusthe skys the limit!!!! I quit, I am going to get a job :confused: :(

Why anyone wants bonuses is beyond me but if you want a bonus with no hassles why don't you try the 100% up to $300.00 with no wager requirement or game restriction bonus from Nostalgia. You don't get to keep the bonus when you cashout but with those T&C's who cares. That bonus is the only bonus I have ever claimed, I never get bonuses.

:what: Maybe because with the right bonuses the odds are in the player's favour and you can (or could) earn a lot of money at virtually no risk?

I'm more surprised anyone would play at online casinos without bonuses for entertainment (with poor customer service, dubious software, slow pay & no human contact), but each to his own!

The switch?

If you suspect that a casino is employing a cheating mechanism, how could you possibly choose to play there? Considering that even well-played blackjack has a casino advantage of 1% or more, depending upon number of decks in use, there is no excuse at all for a casino to cheat. And for a well-established, financially solid casino, there is no reason for them to cheat either. They make thier money off of the advantage and volume, not off of one individual player.

There's a thread out here on intercasino displaying some very disturbing behavior on its roulette wheel. I'm amazed that players aren't more outraged, and almost seem to expect an online casino to rig its games. If this is the state of online gaming, its probably time to stop playing, at least until some credible organization does manage to keep these guys in line.

p.s. I've cashed out a couple of big wins from the monthly at Gold Club & don't think it's any more fixed than other Boss Media casinos. The new wr is probably too high to make it worth the effort/risk, so mission accomplished for them, I guess...

I, too, withdrew a little over 3X my deposit at Gold Club recently. I've only lost 3 times out of 4 that I've played there, either.

The next part is for those who ARE interested in playing with a bonus. If you're not, more power to you and just ignore the rest.

I can't agree that 40X THE BONUS is a bad WR. Sure, 25X was a lot better. But this evens out to 20X the deposit and bonus, which is a much more common WR out there nowadays. If it was 40X the D + B, then I'd agree that the bonus may not be worth the time involved.

I'm seeing more and more casinos going to WR like 30X these days. Anything under that, I consider decent for WR.

Poor customer service, and slow pays are usually dependent on whether you claim a bonus. I know for a fact that it is because I never claim a bonus that I get good customer service, and fast payouts. They have nothing they can hold against me. If they look at my account and see no bonus and that the withdrawal is all based on my own money they have nothing they can use to delay the withdrawal. I know it makes no sense because they offer these bonuses to attract customers but that's the way it is. They could always use a "no fax back documents" excuse or "multiple accounts", or even "not matching information provided" but I take care of that before I even deposit a cent in a casino. You can read how I do that in this post: http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4966

oops

Shoot, that should be WON 3 times out of 4, instead of lost. I meant that to show that I've had no major problems with Gold Club.

Yikes. They have sure jumped it up. Maybe this is the new owners experimenting.

Not very attractive promotion though.

Here are the game restrictions:

"Play at any Roulette, Pai Gow Poker, Craps and Mini Baccarat game is restricted until you have met our wagering requirement. If you play on these games before meeting our requirements, then you agree that the casino holds the right to void any winnings made from these games at our discretion."

With WRs like that, wonder why they care what game you play.

There is a comment about Nostalgia casino below. Anybody know anything about them?
