I just got a mail from iNetBet that now I'm a 'premium VIP' - I'm not sure what it means in terms of goodies or whatever, but I'm just excited about being premium! :thumbsup: I've never been a VIP anywhere either.

Now I'm sure everyone will tell me they've been premium for years and ruin it for me. ;)

EDIT: Actually this is a new thing they're doing, so lots of people got the invite.

Perhaps it means you go on their "always answer their emails" list:rolleyes:

This is actually poor marketing on their part. If a customer is to be escalated to a new level the casino should relay to him/her the perks (both variable and invariables) the latter of which must be as clear as crystal. Say an ND bonus of $50 per month and 2 100% match bonuses weekly. The variables can come along as they deem fit. Otherwise, what's the point in simply promising you should have more goodies.

Well we have a premie account manager on facebook, I asked if we'd maybe get better comps, and he said nope. He said the new Premie Promos would be posted in the lobby in time for the weekend, so just wait and see I guess. I don't take deposit bonuses so those won't be any help to me, so maybe I'll just get the name and no percs. ;)

Your view wouldn't have anything to do with your personal issues with inetbet would it?

Just seems a tad unreasonable to rag on them just because they didn't outline every specific detail in the invite email.

The premium ship passed me by. Interesting since they are the only RTG that I deposit and play at...

Of course not and you are the one ragging on me. I majored in Marketing and understand basic marketing concepts. Chayton just posted that you have to visit the lobby to realise what's in store for premier customers. Premier customers are supposed to get special treatment so I reiterate this is a poor marketing effort from Inet and you are trying to distract from the real issue by stating I am saying this due to my personal issues.

Let's not get crazy here folks. I'm a fan of iNetBet but I have to say I kind of agree with chuchu - if you're going to be invited into some club, it would be nice to know whether it actually means anything to you or not. Remember when Jackpot Factory sent out those special player reward credit card looking things? That did absolutely nothing?

The email said
If you accept our invite your account will be upgraded to 'Premium' status which will allow you access to exclusive promos, special free chips and competitions.
You will also be assigned an Account Manager who will endeavour to deal with all of your queries... you can also add them as a friend on Facebook!

So it's a little vague but I'm actually kind of excited to see what they come up with. Maybe part of iNetBet's marketing plan is to build suspense or keep you guessing, like the original Kia Soul commercials...pre-hamster. ;)

Like Cleve said, you are a real cutie. I guess I shall have to get used to Nifty conducting groundless personal attacks. Making wild guesses is ok but isnt it better to make them educated guesses?

Perhaps everyone should have a slug of whatever Cleveland was drinking tonight - then everyone would get along and invite everyone home with them. And say I'm cute. :oops:

I asked Chu because IMO his POV was unreasonable, and was trying to figure out why. I thought his public personal issues with the casino were a reasonable explanation in my eyes.

All you just did is what you most often do.....fire off a snarky one-liner, avoiding any kind of substance.

I'll accept criticism of my occasional snippiness, but at least I actually discuss issues and try to assist those needing help, and give credit where it is due.

I must admit it amuses me that some think I just "nuthug" CWC and inetbet etc, and that they can do no wrong in my eyes. In fact, it is hilarious, as it shows that these people only see what they want to see, and conveniently omit taking into account several recent threads where I've been critical of both casinos. Still, its far easier, as you know, to just throw a glib one-liner at a "casino nuthugger" rather than actually make valid points supported with logical arguments and facts.

I apologize for any offence Chu. You know I respect your opinion, i just think you were being unreasonable given that I don't see any malice on the casinos part and no details have been released....which I know is kind of your argument, but I really don't think.that not listing each individual perk is a crime or even an example of bad marketing.

Inetbet stated there would be more free chips and better bonuses and an account manager etc.....I think that's a pretty good start.

FWIW, 32 red don't tell you about every perk when you're invited, only pretty much the basics like inetbet did....and there's nothing wrong with 32reds marketing.

When I read 'nuthugging' I thought of Scrat! Seriously, I just now understood that comment. I have a G rated mind in an R rated world.

I think it just boils down to everyone having their own views on things and that your view isn't always the right one :)
We all see things differently and although we all have the right to state opinions and views, it doesn't necessarily mean we can get snarky or rude because it doesn't sit well with someone else.
I'll be the first to admit that I ask questions that sometimes the answer is right in front of my eyes lol
Lets not derail the topic :)

I already apologized to Chu. The matter is closed Afaic.

Keeping it going, like you are, is derailing the topic.

To Chayton and the rest of the members here at CM that did get invite, WTG!!!! It is something to be acknowledged for your patronage at any casino. As this VIP program, is in its early stages, I am sure Inet is also "testing the waters" so to speak, and I am sure it will improve over time. Only time to will tell, and those who did get the invite will be the first to see those changes.

SO again WTG all of you!!!! Enjoy your new VIP status!!!!

All the best,
LH

The first 'perc' was in the message center today - a 200% deposit bonus and a free chip (I'm pretty sure it was 25x playthrough and 10x max WD but I busted out) - I'm not sure what the terms are for the deposit bonus.

But that seemed pretty good. :thumbsup: Anybody else get anywhere with it?
