These are the weekly deposited chip match,

Deposit 75 get 75 free chips WG x 10 used to be x4,
or
Deposit 100 get 75 free chips and 30 gbp worth of spins. The winnings from the spins will be credited into the bonus balance with WGx30:eek:, On these promotions winnings were always credited to your casino balance with a WGx4.

Such a big increase.

This is a VIP promotion

i done a offer the other week and had over £700 in cash balance but still £20 in bonus balance. this was off the thunder thursday free spins. i went to cash it out but it just said i would lose my bonus balance. i didnt want to risk losing my full balance so just done wr. won a little more doing it also. so i have no idea if i cashed out with the bonus still in what would of happened.

I asked once if they published winners names. They said no but assured me the draws take place daily.


If you look on the homepage and click on the magic chips on the right hand side it has a column with latest winners in, but the names have not been changed for months :confused:
They should really publish the names IMO

They are just falling in line with the MGS standard of 30x WR, and even then on only some of their promotions. They will have to do this if they want to expand their player base outside of the UK and offer these bonuses to players in general, not just those in the UK who deposit by card as at present.

yes they are falling in line with other casinos vinyl but these are vip players, and they are getting treated now as a normal player with a x30 bonus wr. i know 32 red vip players are x30 BUT all games count towards wr. this is obviously a huge step in the wrong direction for vip players. if they upped it too x10 bonus wr thats not too bad. if you look on the promotion website all promos this month are basically x30. another thing i just dont understand here is the x20 wr for neteller and moneybookers deposits, this is a insane rule just because it cost them a bit more to send money to these players when they withdraw. so basically ladbrokes are saying thier is no vip programme now. you might get bigger bonuses but you have to wager the same as everyone else. this is a bad move imho.

I do, it's bullshit, and is why I uninstalled the casino nearly 5 years ago. For a tiny, tiny, minority of players who used Ladbrokes as a cheap money transfer system, or even used them to "churn" large sums whenever Neteller ran a cashback promo, they have kept this term long after the underlying problems were addressed. Neteller have stopped running the type of promotion that resulted in the churning of funds, and they could address other abuses by insisting, as many others, that withdrawals go back to the means of deposit, rather than Neteller.

Ladbrokes are going to lose out though, since card companies are starting to discourage the use of credit cards for online gambling by imposing punitive fees, so this will restrict players to using only debit cards to avoid bank fees, and many debit cards restrict such transactions, or even block them altogether. It might not worry the low rollers who ONLY deposit for the bonuses, but WILL restrict the ability of high rollers who might otherwise deposit much more. Oddly, the rule works in favour of the "bonus abusers" who would not have much trouble switching to a debit card, but it WILL affect those who play at VIP level, which means depositing £7000 per month or more. This could be a problem with a debit card, and may trigger the banks to repeatedly block the card for a fraud check. It may be just as bad with credit cards, but on top of this many are imposing fees up to 3% on each transaction, and/or interest from day 1, not the statement date.

eWallets are designed to allow high rollers to play at their level, but not only do Ladbrokes exclude them from most bonuses, they impose a blanket 20x WR on all DEPOSITS from such methods, and this seems to be regardless of whether or not a bonus is involved, even if they don't rigidly enforce it.

The fact that they have now made all players WR a standard 30x suggests that banning eWallet users from bonuses didn't work. They either uninstalled, or switched to cards and carried on "abusing the offers" as before.

Frankly, a 100% match to £75 is pretty poor for a VIP. I got 100% up to £450 yesterday at GNUF with the standard 30x WR and game weights for non slot games. There are 3-4 of these every month, along with many at a lower percentage.

Why the hell would I reinstall Ladbrokes even without this latest change:confused:

well I am not going for the free spins on FROL with x30 wr, NO WAY. I have just got my 75 quid chip bonus with a turnover of 10x, I have made the wr with 90p max bet on thunderstruck BUT I still don't think its fair that VIP members have the same WR as everyone. I enjoyed Ladbrokes for their low wr and TBF they also prided themselves on having the lowest wr in the industry, so why now:confused:

a month later they changed into 50 each week and get 25 worth of freespin if i choose option 2.. option 1 is just 50 bonus.. but for that u need to qualify and deposit and play for it...

for this bonus i enjoyed like 2-3 months..

I received my 30 bonus with the 900 WR at 3pm. Ive been as high as 90 currently at 60.
Four hours playing between 0.30-0.60 stakes.

I just looked at my balance still 20 locked as bonus.I contacted chat and asked for my current turnover.
Which was only 263. Unfortunately im playing on flash and cant verify this but it seems wrong and low.

Anyway going to take a note of my WR from now on and see if it matches the one they give me in another few hundred spins.

By the way although I know the terms of bonuses,the chat rep gave me this rather mind numbing explanation of bonus wager requirements.

"Say for example you have £5 balance, place a £5 bet and win £5. Then your balance is £10 and you've wagered £5, if you then place another £1 and lose, your balance goes down to £9 but you've wagered another £1 so your total wagering is now £6."

:what: Answers on a postcard to that one!

Yeah, I got through it but no withdrawal.:(

As I thought my WR was higher than what the chat told me it was 563 not 263.

But what the chat rep told me was also correct in a way, as the bonus system updates strangely.The system updated at 300 wagered(x10) which is normal, but my total WR changed.

So when I reached 300 of the 900 required my WR changed to 0 of 600 on the system.

Its best to ask the total WR needed when getting your current turnover.
