Can someone ezplain to me what is the intent here? I copied this from INET'S promotion page:
"Single Hand Video Poker Coupon

Valid until January 22nd
Deposit between $10 - $50
Enter coupon code: T8K7Q
Play through deposit 25x at Single Hand Video Poker
Receive 20% Bonus
(non match bonus)"
The bold was done by me..Then I read the T&C and says something to the effect that non match bonus is 15x playthrough

I really think this has to be deliberately ambiguous so INET has an escape clause as in the last uproar..I wish they would get their act together and be as straightforward as possible with us the players.
Does one have to be a rocket scientist to figure out this crap and who in their frigging mind would take a 10% bonus so that you have to play your own hard earned deposit 250% before ytou can cash out anything?
GIMME A BREAK, PLEASE!! PISSED OFF AT THE LACK OF CANDOR HERE!!!

Stovetopp,
I am sorry if you feel the terms ambiguous. If you have any such queries then simply send a mail to [email protected] and they can clarify for you.

This coupon is very simple.
It is a coupon just for Video Poker play.
You make a deposit and claim the coupon.
Once you have wagered your deposit 25x then a bonus of 20% is added to your account.

non match bonus- this means that you do not get the bonus straight away. The deposit has to be wagered the given number of times before the bonus is added.

If you feel that this is not the type of bonus you want to partake in then simply do not claim it.

Best Regards
iNetBet Promos

This is not directed at Inetbet solely, but for all the casinos who attach a wagering requirement to a players own money.
I can definately see having wagering requirements attached to a coupon or bonus, but to have it attached to a players own money is alittle over the edge. What is the purpose of doing this?

Hi Heatherad,
I am not sure where you got that idea.
At iNetBet, if no coupon is claimed then there would be no wagering requirements attached to a deposit.

I was referring to the coupon being claimed. I know there is no wagering requirement if you only make a deposit with no bonuses attached.
I was asking, why, when a player claims a coupon, is there a wagering requirement attached to their own money and not just the coupon/bonus?

I think All Star Slots is on the right track with their bonus offerings just as The Rushmore group. One of them requires a playthrough on the BONUS only when depositing, the other is plain and simple. The original deposit on one of them is not affected on any playthrough. Hopefully others will follow this kind of offers.

I also cannot understand all the twists and turns some of the casinos requires when one takes a bonus..why not make it simple and do a flat amount of conditions...you have to be a lawyer to get through all the garbage some of them throw at you. The terms are on the bonus then the terms on the general page then the terms on the on games to play, etc etc..kinda shooting themselves in the foot.

The best bonus offer I have found during the holidays was Cherry, Rushmore and Slotoasis. Simple and to the point..I didn't have to have to hire a lawyer to get through all the twists and turns..SIMPLE is GOOD!

It's almost like saying, we don't want your business unless you don't take a bonus or lets see how hard we can make it for you to give us your money!

Sorry for the derail...just don't get the idea of the offerings when you make it impossible to understand..


I don't think I have taken a bonus at Inetbet in years due to the terrible T&C's.

Let's see if I have got this right. Your deposit must be wagered 28x to get a 20% bonus without further WRs. This comes with a twist as you are not guaranteed the bonus if you are unable to turn over your deposit 25 times. So you just cannot use the 20% bonus to assist you in the initial 25x wagering. Definitely not for me.

As I said, some casinos have gotten screwier and screwier as their offers get ridiculous and for Inetbet to become on of the casinos to fall into this discription means they are becoming a little scarier to deposit at...first changing things in mid stream, then doing these silly offers that one can't figure out...

For a casino with such a wonderful reputation for so long...why are they determined to become one of the ones to worry about?? Is it arrogance? That is the downfall for many a company (casino) when the player becomes secondary to their craziness in offers...

Just get back to basics please..and stop this wierd and unintelligable stuff in requirements..geez...

I decided to try Inet again to see if I am still in the long dry slump there..I guess I am, but I knew I should have left as soon as I kept getting "updating" software....because I knew they were doing another change to their games..and boy have they!

I played the Enchanted Garden one and got truly strange workings on this slot...first bonus round all the little dragonfly's showed before the slot reels even stopped..then half the respin wins didn't show..

I left there and went to Greenlight, again another bad run..I think they (software updates) removed half the greenlights..couldn't get two greens to save my life...

Then I went to the Treasure one, and another update on that and didn't get more than 1 scatter every 20-25 spins...go figure...the scatter used to pop in on the last reel a LOT..and now it doesn't even come up at all..

I guess RTG had to tweak the games just a little more since they aren't getting enough money out of the players and it had to be at the request of the casino owners..IMO...maybe it's time to move on again for a while..

PS: I just saw this was in the wrong thread..please move it to the right one....

I noticed this too, but worse, it seemed that some of the extra respins were not being credited after being shown. For example, it might say 6 extra had been won, but on the next spin the count down was up by only 4, meaning one spin is unaccounted for. With all the mistakes, it was hard to pin down what the hell was happening, it could just as easily have been the number of extra spins that was wrong (too high), but with the correct number being added.
At Club USA, where I saw the above, the renamed games were NOT renamed in the menu, but only in the game itself. Sherlock Holmes no longer works at all, it starts loading, and then gives "cannot connect to server". Presumably, it is no longer "Sherlock Holmes" but now by another name, and the failure to update the drop down menu has caused the link between the lobby & game to fail. I also found that sometimes instead of the list of slots, I got "undefined", and had to go back and then select again to bring the list of slots up.
This major upgrade seems to have been rolled out with insufficient testing - it is almost as bad as MGS:rolleyes:

Just to add that in Cleopatra Gold you know in advance after the first "mountain?'" lands in the first-third reel that you will not be getting another one of these as there is no thumping sound as should be the case. Spoils the fun, doesnt it?
