How does this bonus work?

    I know I'll get a quicker & clearer answer here that by contacting the casino :)
    So can someone tell me how the 'Bonus Account' system works in casino's like Captain Crooks & UK Casino Club?

    Their T&C's say this:-
    "As you play games with the Bonus Account your betting turnover increases thus fulfils the minimum level of play for this promotion.
    All winnings accrued (less the bonus amount) are available to transfer immediately following the completion of the minimum level of play requirement. A full statement of your current wagering and available winnings for transfer are available via the casino software at anytime.
    If you play any of the Blackjack, Roulette, and all Poker games you are required to play 20 times your initial deposit."


    Question 1: Is the bonus withdrawable once WR is met? :confused:
    Question 2: Does 'all poker games' really mean that - i.e. do they include VP, Stud, PaiGow & 3-card poker??? :confused: :confused:

    Help will be appreciated!

    It's a bit tricky... & CaptainCooks has a different system again.

    The one you give the t&c for gives you a 'sticky' bonus in the bonus account. When you've played it through (not sure about the poker part, but you'd be best to stick to BJ) - you can transfer to your 'real account', but you need to have a minimum of 50 above the bonus amount. So you're going to have to get lucky or put everything on one spin at roulette etc. The good part about it is that after you transfer anything to the real account, the bonus remains and you can keep on trying to transfer more.

    In the real account you have to wager 10 or 20x your original deposit (you don't need to wager anything you transferred). Then you can withdraw...

    Hard to explain, but actually a good offer (never thought I'd say that about this casino group!).

    I'll say it's hard - but is it a good offer?
    (I was quoting UK Casino T&C's)
    I think I'm getting there - is this right:-

    Deposit $50 & get $50 bonus.
    Wager the deposit x10 & do what you like with it - that bit's easy!

    Wager the $50 bonus x10 to meet WR, but you need to at least double it to transfer any winnings to real account. Hard, but I understand.

    What if your bonus chips dip to say $20 when you meet the WR, but then you get lucky & turn that into $70 - can you move $50 into your 'real' account, or do you have to get up to $100+ ?

    As for going si*t or bust to double your chips - that's NOT my style! I think I would have to be pretty drunk to try a stunt like that!
    Hmmm... That's a good idea! :D :thumbsup:

    No, you always need to get to $100 (assuming a 50/50 bonus). It means it's best to deposit the maximum so the minimum $50 to transfer isn't so difficult to reach.

    Also, don't wager the amount in the real account until you've tried to transfer some of the bonus money to it. Hopefully it'll give you more of a buffer against going bust.

    It's a sticky bonus, so not everyone's cup of tea, but if you lose all of the bonus you still have a fair chance of keeping most of your deposit if you wager sensibly (autoplay low stakes BJ) in the real account.

    Any bonus whose terms give you a headache trying to figure them out is not worth it.

    Would like to agree just to encourage them to write clearly... but in financial terms I think you're mistaken ;)

    I took that offer on UKCasinoclub, and I kind of like the bonus account system. All you need to do is click the Casino Action button and it will tell you how much you can transfer to your real account. It's simple really. The bonus is non-transferable, but the good thing is, say you get a 100 bonus, then fulfill the wagering req's then win say 200. You transfer 200 to your real account (withdrawable), then you'll still have your bonus (100) to play with and try to win more on your bonus account.

    THe catch is, I think you have to wager your original deposit in your real account, too, so careful with that.

    But in the end, seems an OK system. I got paid very quickly no problems there.

    I contacted UK Casino & got this answer:-

    "Yes. All poker games include VP, Stud, PaiGow, Let it Ride, & 3-card poker."

    So when they say:
    "The wagering requirements are for your real and bonus account
    10x on all games except
    20x Roulette, Blackjack or any of the Poker Games
    Baccarat and Craps are not included in the wagering calculation."

    It means the same as this!
    "The wagering requirements are for your real and bonus account
    10x on all games except
    20x Roulette, Video Poker or any Card Games .
    Baccarat and Craps are not included in the wagering calculation."

    Well, I think that's clearer.
    So you can use Roulette for WR - that's a bit of a rarity! ;)
    Also SicBo at on 10x apparently - if anyone knows how to play that!

    I think that sounds like a pretty good offer - may take it up soon....
