    Be grateful for some of your wisdom. . .
    say you have a great strategy and you keep winning - surely, bearing in mind those gritted teeth when it comes to paying you out, a casino's pretty soon going to stop sending you those nice welcomes when you log in? So what's the plan to enable you to keep on playing? Do you flit from casino to casino - and how often can you withdraw winnings without being locked out for good?
    thanks: notworthy

    Good question. At reputable casin os its absolutely no problem.
    They pay out only lets say 95% of what the players deposit. And they dont mind, who is winning. They dont take it personally.
    I had some fat cashouts this year and get my monthly bonus as before (at32red, at Intercasino, and would get it at Inetbet, if they hadnt had their famous birthday event).
    so: go on winning, as long as you play accredited ones. And dont forgte some screenshots of your best winnings.:thumbsup:

    I've never been banned from any casino as a winner. Maybe because I've never had a decent winning strategy (do they exist? i think not!)

    However, I wasn't welcome as a loser at the old Hard Rock casino. I tried their 50 bonus and played some Three Card Poker - without doubt the cruelest (in terms of bad luck) casino session I ever had including a bank-breaking 18 losses in a row playing ante only Q6x or better. I finally got the bonus after reloading and cashed out (120 pounds loss) only to get an e-mail saying i wasn't welcome to claim any mounthly bonuses anymore. I e-mailed them back with a copy of my play log and told them that I won't be lying on any train tracks because of their decision.

    Seriously bizarre and i can only guess it was due to the fact that i cashed out at exactly the point my bonus was credited.

    Hi Steadman! Thought you had disappeared.
    Don't forget I'm only 5-miles down the road if you'd like a beer sometime! :cheers:
    If you want a winning strategy I can recommend a good site... :rolleyes:

    Back to the topic:
    Two of the first casinos I ever joined were William Hills & Intercasino back in 2001. I have taken their monthly bonuses every month ever since, and am well in the black ;)
    Same at many other reputable places since then too. As mikepipe said - as long as you're not blatantly taking the pee you should be OK! :thumbsup:

    I wasn't even big winner -- just a low roller who cashed out when ahead --at SciFi. I was depositing there several times a week, rarely (maybe a few times a year) would use a bonus. I wasn't locked out, but they confiscated my comp points and removed the comps feature from the software, banned me from bonuses (big deal, didn't like 'em) and took me off their mailing list. I found out from the affiliate I signed up through that my account was marked as "not in good standing". I quit playing there on principle. Good way to keep loyal customers, don't ya think? I look at it this way, they'll never win it back if I never play there again. :D

    I think most accredited casinos shouldn't be a problem!
    Unless you find that magic roulette strategy and take 1000 off them every day for several days.... of course this wont happen for another couple of days until ive perfected my strategy.... ha ;) and then ill sell it off for 100 a pop coz it worked so well :D haha.

    Anyway, I got a load of emails from Totesport, saying I had to deposit 5 and play 500 or 250 or so on a slot. I found i had 7 comps, so i just redeemed them, worked at 20p/spin or min bet, whatever that was, and managed to crank out the WR with about an extra 13 before bonus :p

    Then when they emailed me to say they were starting a monthly bonus I got denied it as a "bonus abuser". hmmmm! I only did the slots once cus I was bored... dont like playing slots normally!

    As a confirmed bonus-whore...

    Let's see, 49'er casino, when it was open, sent me a warning email. after I my first winning bonus-using session. After my second, they paid me, and eliminated future bonuses.

    Crystal Palace (yeah, I know), one of their casinos paid, and then closed the account, after I cashed out from a signup bonus (i.e. immediately). Then, several months later, I signed up for another casino in the group (not knowing they were even related, should have checked the listings here first), played the bonus, won on one, requested the cashout, and they confiscated all the money.

    The virtual group casinos have tended to restrict me from bonuses after 2 to 5 winning cycles. Due to the length of processing cashouts, this generally means three months or so. Play still allowed, just not bonuses.

    For the casino there is no definite way to tell a bonus hunter from a bona fide gambler, although there may be a few telltale signs (only playing for bonuses, only barely making the WR, etc..). As long as they don't know for sure they might as well be nice to you. I know that at least some casinos analyze your play and send out bonus offers based upon certain criteria which they will never disclose in public. The clumsier casinos will tell you outright that you were excluded, but most won't because there is nothing to gain from that.

    I also believe that the serious operators see bonus hunters as part of the business. Threat them with the same courtesy as you treat everyone else, and they will become good ambassadors for your casino, in forums and in real life.

    Playing at a lot of different casinos is part of the strategy.

    Withdrawing winnings should not be an problem, except in the really rogue places. Remember that gamblers win in the short term, too, although they may be destined to lose in the long term. And casinos like gamblers.
