    Hi there everyone 8). I'm kinda noob here, and I've got a question concerning Grand Bay casino.

    Recently I received a letter via s-mail, and there was a 100$-free-no-deposit coupon. I entered it in their casino and actually received a 100 no deposit bonus. After 15 minutes of play aI made it a 300$+..

    And now I wonder if it is safe to make a deposit here to withdraw that winnings. They also give a 100%-100$ welcome bonus.

    Has anyone played there? Is it a normal casino or a scam?
    (it is a little bit suspicious that a win that easily)

    You as well!

    This mass marketing is getting out of hand. Looks like the UK has been hit with this, and now Russia!
    The danger here is that the casino may end up with too many players on the books taking only the free chip and first deposit bonus and wanting to withdraw. This will put a squeeze on the bottom line, and this will inevitably lead withdrawals being denied due to "abuse" of the offer in the mailer.
    I have received TWO, and there is only ONE of me. if you also have two for the same casino, do NOT open two accounts, they will confiscate everything for multiple accounts at the same household, it is against the terms that are so helpfully NOT included in the snail-mailer, but are easily found by guessing the name of the website and having the ability to predict that terms and conditions are included under a link to promotions, where there are three sets, general, promotional, and eZbonus.

    I was under the impression that Russia was listed as a banned country at Grand Bay, so can't see why they wasted money sending mailers there!

    I have not always had the greatest service from these guys but have always been paid without hassle, I have been playing at Grand Bay since they opened, I think you are safe here, just follow all the T&C's.

    already got a 500$+ in my account 8\\

    Sooooo 8(.. does anyone know how to redeem that money? On their site there is a loooong sheets of different T&Cs, and as far as I understand, I need to wager 30xbonus to be able to withdraw, right?

    (i didn't made a depo yet, since i'm russian, and on their site they say that bonuses will not be given for my country accounts. Who knows, may be they'll lock me without any funds returned)

    Just don't go expecting any type of suuport from 8am EST Friday to 8am SET Sat.

    As per usual GBC (I'll assume the entire Grand Prive` support) are holding their annual Chrissy party and the support center will be closed for 24 hours. They must get pretty sloshed :drink:

    I don't begrudge any business closing down for an Xmas party. Employees are only human after all plus it's Xmas and besides, I know from experience that all customers are a*sholes anyway. Let the buggers wait :D

    So GP guys: get drunk, throw up, get laid, cash in the bonus and THEN you can worry about the WR :cheers:

    Problem

    This is one of the problems. The fact that you registered from a banned country and that the support and/or software credited bonuses is not gouing to help if management decide it was in error. They will claim that YOU should have read the terms, spotted that Russian players could not receive bonuses, and not claimed it in the first place.

    Only a few months ago, us Brits were allowed to play, but were not allowed to claim bonuses. If we ended up with bonuses, it was up to US not to use them in breach of the terms. There were a rash on non-payment issues with this group who were able to take certain bonuses through the software, but were banned from doing so in the various terms. Many involved British players playing in USD, not that uncommon, and claiming bonuses that were allowed for USD acounts; however, Grand Prive insisted that UK residents had to play in GBP, and Americans had to play in USD. Anyone else was free to play in USD if they so chose except the Brits.
    One problem in sending more than one mailer to a household is that in many cases, husband & wife will say "let's have one each", and at that point there is nothing to tell them this will be a big problem for them. It wouldn't be if each opened accounts at different casinos, but the mailer is Grand Bay alone, with no mention of any choice beig available.

    If it works, I am sure they will repeat this with other of their brands, which include, but are not necessarily limited to :)D ), Grand Bay, Roadhouse Reels, Bella Vegas, Jupiter Club, Lake Palace, Big Dollar (sorry, let that slip;) ).

    I got the postal bonus too!
    Redeemed the coupon & got 100 quid in my account last Saturday - but I have not played at all yet because I can't find the T&C's anywhere! :eek:

    I e-mailed them that day, but got no response. (Still waiting...)

    If anyone knows what the conditions are on this bonus, I would love to hear it!

    Shame on them

    I would have thought that at least the install CD would provide the terms. This is going to lead to many problems with players who breached the terms because none were available at the time. If they were impatient, they could end up doing something wrong, most specifically if the terms turn out to involve game exclusions rather than just WR.
    From another post, I understand it is necessary to deposit before being able to withdraw from this free chip, but all that the mailer has to say on this is that after the free chip you can then have the normal 100% to 100 deposit bonus; which is actually against the standard terms on the Grand Bay website (enjoying more than one new player offer per account). This implies this mailer is not covered at all under the standard terms, and has special terms that, so far, no-one has been able to find.

    Last week i got also 3 letters from Casino Grand Bay, all have $100 voucher ( = 3 different vouchers), Casino CD plus some marketing stuff.
    They allow one voucher and refuse to credit rest ones.

    I ask reason to this, and here is part of their reply:

    "...Thank you for your mail.

    The vouchers were sent by an external marketing company from their data base.
    We do not control over who they send it to and how many times..."

    Great!

    I expect they will use this excuse if this offer causes problems due to non-existant terms and conditions. This is so similar to the "our affiliate did it" excuse used by Fortune Lounge.
    We do at least know how they got our addresses, they didn't, the external company has our addresses from somewhere!
    If this is so, this mailshot is likely to go out to more total non online gamblers than gamblers. As it is so indiscriminate that 3 (or more) are sent to the same person I bet they are also sent to kids too, ones whose names appear in their own right on marketing databases, particularly the ones held by mobile phone companies.
