    OK, so I occasionally take 100% bonus even at 30-x D and Bonus and do so just for playtime.
    Question: Can someone who plays at 25% or 50-% bonus at 20 OR 30 times for WR tell me the sane reason for doing this? I am really sincere in asking this question......I am very surprised that this offer is even given

    To each their own, but exposing 100% of your money to a a WR for such a small bonus is insane. You are definitely better off not taking the bonus in this case. You're better off not taking the bonus in most cases, but for some of us it's justified when we only have $50 to deposit and can get a 200% bonus.

    They're just trying to pull a fast one on the players that don't realize the mathematics of bonus'. In essence, with a < 100% bonus with WR's that applies to d+b, you're having to wager on your own money....it makes more sense just to play without a bonus unless it's 125% or more....

    Quite honestly, IMHO, I believe those bonuses are an insult to a player's intelligence. 100% and above with NO max cashout is reasonable. Rivals are notorius for the small ones and the higher ones (once you have won) with a max cashout. You still have the WR which is difficult enough...but $20 on a $100 deposit and then to have to wager it 20 or 30 X is crazy:rolleyes:

    I think they're geared to scam the newbie who doesn't read the T/C just signs up for the incredible free money offer they see only to find out it's not so free. And as you suggested........to provide the extended play time for those seeking the big hit. Myself I'd be pretty depressed to take a bonus get a 1000 dollar win and pay most of it back to meet W/R.

    Or forfeit it as a naieve newbie who hits and presses the withdrawal button only to find out I just lost every hope in hell of being able to cash it out. That rule needs to change for that reason alone, the request should be denied and the player directed to T/C none of this stealing er.... confiscating winnings because a withdrawal is requested before meeting WR.

    Speaking of rivals, I had made playthrough on a free chip and was only waiting to have the money to make a minimum deposit, then withdraw. In the meantime a new $30 no deposit came along, so I took it. Wrong thing to do! It exposed the $49 I had already cleared to a a new playthough and I didn't make it. This happened at Vegas Regal and when I emailed support about it, they acted like they didn't give a damn. How can they make cleared money have a playthough again?

    So your withdrawal still showed it was reversible when you claimed the new promo, right?

    It was still in the balance. It was cashed out but reversible, but they reversed it back to my balance until I would make a deposit of $25. In the meantime I took this new bonus. Lesson learned, if that's the way things are supposed to work.

    I thought you couldn't claim a bonus at any rival unless your balance is $0.00?


    The software will change the limits on every game if you're playing on a bonus, it also won't let you accrue comp points on a ND chip, and it won't let you attempt to cash out if you haven't met the WR of a bonus, but yet it will let you claim a bonus if one of their restrictions ($0 balance) isn't met??? It's not like this is a new rule or anything like that. :rolleyes:

    It's so blatantly obvious that they want you to get sucked in to a no-win situation.

    This is the problem with BetPhoenix. Great deposit bonuses, with paltry max cashouts which make great deposit bonuses into not worth having deposit bonuses.
