    As a Grand Prive V I P for a couple of years and enjoyong weekly bonuses on deposits and also having many cash ins they decided to drop me as a VIP and also from their mailing list, so no more offers..(I also made a point to deposit at least one out of three times without a bonus so they could not say i was abusing the system), Reason..You have cashed out more than what you have deposited,, well ,, well...All they want you to do is deposit and LOSE , you are not supposed to win...I said why cut someone and not offer any bonus at all because they will play somewhere else, they could not have cared less. So what they have done is totally lost me forever and now i play elsewhere...So i think their marketing is pretty ordinary ,you would think that if they continued to offer deals, the player would take them up and the casino would hope that you lose. This way they lose both ways no play and no deposits. You would think they would encourage players to their casino, not turn them away,

    Sheer stupidity! I recall a saying from Stanley HO, the boss of many of the casinos in macau. He said that he doesnt mind if you are clever or ignorant ie whether you have won or lost at his casinos. His only worry would be that you wont return. So it doesnt really matter whether you have won in the past as long as you return to hand over your dough. Actually, winners are far more likely to return because they are financially better off after winning and they think they have luck at the casinos in question. The casinos will always win in the long run because of the house edge. How short-sighted of them.

    GP's Bonus to deposit to cash out ratio policy has lost them many, many players during the last couple of years. And they care not one fig. Never have.

    They hate LOSERS too:confused:

    I was down over 3K over three months & they didn't seem to want me to return either.

    Given the extremely poor payouts recently, there is NO WAY I am playing without some kind of bonus or promotion any longer.

    Yet again today, my play (even with bonuses), has seen incredibly low returns.

    88 spins on Chiefs Fortune with NOT ONE ARROW towards the feature,
    nearly 100 spins on Ladies Nite and not even TWO scatters, let alone three.
    177 on Thunderstruck followed by around half that on High Limit version - no bonus round.
    Munchkins (where bonus rounds are more likely), 200 spins over two casinos and NO BONUS ROUND.

    I am playing MUCH LESS now (operators take note) because of this severe downturn. I have gone from "feeling unlucky", to "feeling I don't stand a &$* chance whatsoever"

    Grand Prive have recently sent me offers for a two month wager challenge event - not this time, I still remember getting conned in the last one.

    Funny really, I would have thought the loss of depositing players would have no effect on the games themselves, given that they are random:rolleyes:

    32Red have a big notice up today, there is an upgrade of some GAMES and FEATURES. No doubt this is for all MG casinos, but only 32Red feel we need to be informed. Existing games should not need an "upgrade" unless something is being changed, then it might be helpful to know WHAT is being changed, lest we think the worst.

    they also will occasionaly lock your account and you have to "telephonically verify details". Despite being a losing player at grandprive, they also removed me from the mailing list. Lame!

    Are you are saying you think individual MG casinos have the power to adjust the returns on their slots? :what:

    This would be very worrying if true and against the previously widely held belief that all MG's games at ALL their casinos run to the exact same %'s.

    They have been doing that to their most loyal depositers for a couple of years now . Doesn't make sense but they still do it .

    Yes, but lately there have been NO "right games" to play. I tried again today, and again dead as *&^%. Not Grand Privvy, but JF and 32Red (who at least ease the pain with bonuses).

    Casino Rewards just offered me yet ANOTHER GBP1000 bonus (25%), but they can eff off as I don't really trust them with all the stunts they have pulled recently.

    GOES IN STREAKS!!

    Yinylweatherman, I know what your saying, been there many times.

    Right now I am on fire, knock on wood, for me being on fire means that I have cashed-in 10x since 8/31 each between 800.00-1100.00.

    Running out of places to play(they have to take quicktender).!!!!(not complaining).

    Gotta get it while you can.

    Good Luck to you and I would definately not take a bonus from Casino Rewards!

    I won't deposit within the CR group at all until they get their sheets together. And they were my favorite at one time:mad:

    I don't mind if Grand Prive bonus ban me, all else is well and I'll still depo and play there.

    It does indeed. I was on fire over a month ago, but someone poured a hell of a lot of water on it in August:mad:
    I may get reignition if I keep a low profile through the rest of September, especially if I wait for Playcheck to dump all sessions to archive, and refresh the games (21 days). {easy to spot on 3 reel slots, and on others - last hand is removed, and default coin/lines restored.}
