Yes indeed microgaming is fair, i was finally able to prove to myself

I am winning at this casino, but they have a extraordinarily crappy
requirement which needs me to wager 20 times the deposit plus
bonus amount ($290) on slots only!! What in the world is tht condition!!

Damn I think i will lose whatever I am winning to meet tht wagering
requirement

Sign of the times.

The days of easy money at sign up are over!

20x on slots is increasingly common now.

I find that using small stakes, not betting max coins (such as $1.35 on Ladies Nite), and 0.45 or 0.18 on Carnaval and What a Hoot is the only way to grind out 20x with any chance of survival. Keep changing games, and autoplay with a stop loss/gain and swap if cold, or if cooling from a hot streak. 3 reel slots such as the 800/1600 Jackpot variety on a single 0.25 coin can run level for considerable periods if caught right, but can cool suddenly so again set a stop loss, and a stop win to catch the bigger hits.
This will give the best chance of retrieving at least the deposit with a chance of making more.

An altogether different strategy of "do or die" can be tried though. Play some of the free spins slots on higher stakes such as $5 or more, or Muchos Grande on around $11 and hope to hit the maps. If you get a decent feature, go to the first strategy to grind out the WR for a profit (with luck!).

Ditto :D

My advice: Play without signup bonuses, find a casino you like, stay there and pick up the loyalty bonuses. Or get some tips off Kasino King ;)

Totaly agree.Of course use good bonuses which have low wagering requirements but if they have high wagering requirements and they wanted you to play on slots and if you dont like to play slots,dont use bonuses.

I agree...if I open a new account I will usually accept the bonus (esp. Microgaming) BUT ..my first deposit is usually a minimal one, $25-$50..so that the wagering requirement dollar amount is also minimal (easier to wager 20 times $25 than 20 times $250, etc.). Most importantly, its a smaller loss (I usually don't expect a whole lot especially if I have to make wagering requirements..and easier to get to 0 balance with no regrets).

To me this is just the "get through" period..once you're at zero you can make the "real" deposit amount and play whatever you want with no limitations..and, you can cash out if you want to, even if you only gain $50 or $100 net winnings.

That is an another great opinion.It is also the best way for playtech casinos which gives bonuses automatically.

Agreed.

I also agree that if you don't want the mess of trying to get the welcome bonus removed before you start playing, deposit the smallest possible amount.

In my opinion, casinos should offer a choice - take a welcome bonus with wagering requirements, or a loyalty bonus without.

That's exactly what I do to avoid any trouble by payout! :D And it's so much more fun just to play what you like without grinding W/R!:p
