Inetbet bonuses - do people hit larger winnings with them?

I feel bad for my father who got a little 25 dollar manager bonus, and went in and racked up 4500 bucks. And I told him watch that probably has some tiny ass max cash and sure enough its x10. I mean where is anyone going with such a small return like that?

But what's funny and peculiar to me is how on bonuses I've heard people talk about and when I at one time uses them here and there my play sessions would be incredible. That seems so convinient doesn't it?

Just sucks. He was so pumped up... And they fucking shot him down. They absolutely turn up the knob on bonuses just so they can shut you down ultimately.

It's not the bonuses fault, nor does it have anything to do with a bonus. I have played my fair share of RTG games - rarely taking a bonus if ever. Bonuses have no effect on the outcome of the game. It increases your bankroll, so statistically you have more chances of winning/losing. You don't normally remember your losses, but you remember your wins.

And all bonuses have strings attached. It's all in their terms and conditions as you are well aware. So if you have a bonus that has a max cashout, play blackjack or video poker so you won't be too disappointed :p

Or play without. You'll find it refreshing to not worry about capped winnings or disallowed games. I do that all the time.

But I will be honest tho, sloto and bovada cash back bonuses have no strings. They give a percentage back based on deposits which is nice and I think he was expecting the same, and you can rack them up and it has no max cash out.

It's the only "bonus" I personally will ever touch because of stuff like this.

But my issue is it seems these places on people's bonus money will jack up the odds in their favor, I've seen so many people claim they won JPs on bonus cash just to not be able to take it and I don't think that's all coincidental

I veer sometimes from Sloto and Uptown but I always go back. It is a decent outfit run professionally, IMO. It has its ups and downs, but always seems to land on its feet.

I like Inetbet, but not the tight terms of their bonuses. In addition, Inet has some funky cashout rules, so even though I get some nice wins there, I stay away.

This is just a bias. People out there winning JP's on regular cash are taking their money and having a nice day. People who get capped cause of a bonus are on forums shouting about it. A vocal minority does not equal the truth :)

Casino's don't (and can't, and it would be illegal in a regulated market) change the odds at any point. Slots don't work like that.

I've hit a few JP's, in fact just hit one for 13k in February.. I'm not saying people don't win on real money as I've won over 6 digits in the recent years... BUT I still believe that there's a lot of people that seem to have "extra" luck with bonuses just to have casinos strip their winnings away with some dumb max cash rule.


And when dealing with these oversea casinos, illegal imo can go out the window.. So I don't put it past anyone to fiddle.

I'm not saying it's a fact but it's how it feels.

The Caveat is always 'Is it an unregulated Casino?', if so, then that is the wild west and anything is possible (although still unlikely because it would be a technical pain in the butt and would require an equally dodgy game provider who doesn't want to put their legitimate licences at risk).

But in any properly regulated market, it won't be the case. Appreciate it can feel like it though. As I say, that is due to the cognitive bias. It's human nature :)
