Bonus Complaint having 'fun' with 888 casino (888.com)

    I found 888.com and read some good reviews on it.

    I made a €37,- deposit (i play for fun, not to make or lose a lot) and got a 100% bonus.
    I have done this before on 7red.com - payed €50,- got €50,- bonus won €113,- on roulette and i was able to cash out with €150,-.
    I ofcourse lost the 50,- bonus.. no problem, and later on 1 lost the remaining of my own 13,-.. no problem.

    But I found out that 888 doesnt work in that same fair way.
    I started with 37 + 37 = €74,- and 2 days later i had a balance of €161,-. And like many of you know... all the money I won was just 'bonus wins'.
    With a balance of €161,- there was only €40,- to cash out.
    At one point i dropped a lot to only a balance of €57,- (or near that) and guess what .. there was only €10,- left to cash out.
    I got really frustrated about the fact that winning means nothing ,cause it takes months of playing and winning 50+% of your bets to actually start owning the bonus money. I doubt that one might really ever will - if one constantly gains a little more than he bets.
    While on the other hand - Losing direcly means losing actual money.

    I seems to me that this system is stupid. I feel like it should count every €1,- bet as 50% of the deposited money and 50% of the bonus money.
    It would have been really nice if I just could take half of the €161,- to cash out.

    The story so far is that - today- I ended up with €74,50 (0,50 more than I started with) and was able to set €37,50 on cash out.
    I now hope that they will actually pay the cash and that this litte advanture with 888 will end with €0 losses.

    I'd like to read more from people that have been playing with 888.

    Did you read the bonus T&C's first? Sounds not.
    If you had, they tell you a WR and how the bonus turns to cash, whether in increments of say 10% or all at once. Your bonus will ALL turn to cash when you meet the total WR on 888.com.
    It's all very well happily taking a bonus, then when you are well up suddenly decrying it as 'unfair' because you can't cash out. Crikey, the amount of times I've been tied to a WR when I was in a good position to cash out. That's the gamble of accepting bonuses my friend. At least they let you w/d some of your balance, unlike some casinos which turn your WHOLE deposit into bonus when you accept one.
    So, you can w/d a bit and forfeit the bonus, or try and meet WR - that's online gambling!

    Could you give me a Link then where i can read all about this system they use?

    I just went to 888.com but didnt really encounter anything that covers the problems I had.

    And on a sidenote : Im not crying or pissed of, i still got free entertainment. I just got frustrated cause I had some luck with roulette and it didnt resolve into a little more cash than i started with. I can still advise people to play at 888, i'll tell them just not to take any bonus.

    Turn right, then right. then right again
    Its called the "Terms and Conditions".

    You can look it up the same as anyone else, and I think its actually quite lazy and unreasonable to expect everyone else to do your research for you.

    You obviously found the casino website on your own.
