I'm not sure why the casino is complaining about fluctuations in bet size. What use is having a variable bet size on games if you're not allowed to use it? Win or lose, the casino is only too happy to take your money. I fail to see how any player gains any true benefit from changing bet size. That RTP is still going to get you in the end. Regardless of the size of your bets. The player does not gain any extra RTP by changing stake. So how are they gaining an advantage over the casino?

Let's say you deposit 150 and take a 100% match of 150%, total 300 balance and 4500 to wager at 30xbonus.... you start with 6.25 and increase to 12.50 and make it quick to a balance of 4500 with still 3000 left to wager.... now you set a bet size of 1$, chose a low variance slot and put it on autospin to complete the wagering....mathematically you end up with a nice balance to withdraw :)

This is what casinos call 2-tier betting, whereas i call it smart betting when you don't want to risk too much of your balance whilst still wagering.

The determination of what constitutes bonus abuse shall be at the sole discretion of InterCasino, but for clarity what will be considered evidence of bonus abuse shall include, but not be limited to, the following examples:

Using more than one account
Wagering the bonus money on excluded games
Bonus stacking
Two tier betting
Multiple account strategy / proxy account strategy
Using a VPN or masking IP address
Affiliate CPA or revenue share abuse
A pattern of betting using bonus money in which a significant proportion of single bets are more than £/$/€ 6.25 in slots or more than £/$/€ 25 in table games


What I find especially strange is that they have both the max bet rule of £/$/€ 6.25 and the two-tier betting prohibition. Averting bonus-abuse with a max-bet is something Iam willing to understand but two-tier betting Iam not. The purpose to prevent people from doing that is clear to me: Having a big-hit with £/$/€ 6.25 and then reduce bet-size to grind out wagering requirements.

Let's asume we have 2 players:
Player A is flat-betting £/$/€ 6.25 all the time until wagering requirements are fulfilled and makes a withdrawal after that.
Player B bets £/$/€ 6.25 until he/she has quadrupled the bankroll and switches to low-betting (let's say £/$/€ 1.50) after that until wagering requirements are fulfilled and cashes-in after that.

Certainly Player A will bust out more often but his EV is higher then that of Player B. So why not encouraging players to use two-tier betting?

I would have prefferred the rep for the casino to explain what they see as Two tier betting. Maybe they see it as something else or considering jumping up and down in bets also as wrong. I don't know, but if everyone state what it is then you better be sure because now they will probably not reply.

Next I see that I have no idea what it is. Bonus stacking?
Is that trying to use two bonuses at the same time or what? Is that even possible?
Or does it mean something else?

I still hope that the rep clarifies. It's possible that Intercasino has a different approach which we did not consider yet.
