    Not really a complaint more of a 'heads up' to other players.

    Having heard nothing from Roxy Palace (apart from 2-3 times weekly spam) for months and months, I suddenly get a real great offer via email.

    100% deposit match and 100FS on Jurassic Park.

    As a low-roller you can imagine I love my deposit matches but to get 100FS on what is my fave game atm well you can imagine my little face lighting up!

    Now I had this promo a few times in the past (long time back) and they sent it me for all these new releases, Starlight Kiss, TFROL, IR (I think) and I'd 'taken advantage' each time.

    Deposited £20 and got £20 bonus free, played FS and won £22, ready to 'go it alone' with £62.

    Stayed JP and hit £75 bonus quite quick so thought, great can play above minimum stake for a bit for a change!

    2 hours of .90p and .60p bets WR had not changed.

    Luckily I did not 'bust' BUT it took over 8 hours of play to full convert this bonus, peaked at £225 but also dropped below £10er.

    Live help say this bonus was x50 (previously x30, I should ask I know lol) but 8 hours at these stakes tell me otherwise, It feels like it was more like 100x

    Anyway like I say not a moan, they are a good casino but if they are doing an 'email promo' I'd rather let people know first so they don't get the back ache I got right blumin chore lol!

    Hey mate,

    Whenever i take such i bonus, that consists of both a match up and a set of Free Spins, i make sure to play my deposit first.
    Main reason is because sometimes it seems to double your wagering or combine a 40x or more (from the FS) w/r with a 30x w/r (from the deposit)

    Of course usually this would be stated somewhere, or if in doubt chat may clear it up, but in general, like you, i don't read the terms, assuming they are same as always (in my steady casinos they usually are) but i do that to make sure there is no such occurrence.

    I really like such promotions and get them on EM or other Multiplatform sites every now and then, more often on GoWild and the JPC group.
    I just use my deposit match, hoping to make wagering and win in the process, and then use the spins either as back-up, or as "extra" when i would win, and cash out:)

    This way you will at least have the usual w/r.
    May be worthwhile next time to open chat or read the t&c's quickly, just to make sure though...

    the problem here is what you win from the Fs will become a bonus and the winning u get from 1x wager of the bonus also added as bonus

    ie if you win 22 frm freespins then you place bets and the wins u get til u bet 22 will add to ur bonus balance

    and i also not this also happened when you get NDB chips say if u get 10 chips if u win a 40 in first few spins ur bonus bal will be 50 and have to wager that hapened me a lot times even on accredited casinos

    I have thought to do and some times actually do what you suggest.

    If I had this time I would have probably managed a £150ish cash out and been able to leave £20 with the FS to also fall back on as you say :)

    My trouble is I get paranoid (sometimes through experiences in the past and sometimes through what I read on here etc lol)

    'Will they remove my FS if I cashout' - 'Will they void my win if I cashout and then play spins' etc etc

    You are spot on tho I do need to check T&C more closely but with 'sites your used to' these tend to stay as you expect, caught me here tho :p

    Thats the trouble, I have read a few gems recently where its 30x play threw but slots count as 50%, At first I did ask about this and told bingo counts as 100% I find this funny as you cannot play bingo with casino bonus, Than they stated the term some count as 100% is for some special promos they do in a while, Yhe right,

    Also like incrediblestuff said, Use your own cash & bonus first, If you do manage a with draw than than lose the spins than it does not really matter as got a withdraw, If you lose than you have the free spins to fall back on, Also note that on some sites the free spins wins do come with a bigger wager as well,

    But like your last statement some sites do not like you to leave your free spins till last, Well surely that should be your chose & if casino does try stinging you or take of you when withdraw than that is a wrong one,

    I no it may sound to good to take the free spins first than try and build a good balance up, But you will find that wager is near impossible :( Yes you get a good balance for low deposit and play time, But unless lucks on your side than you will no doubt bust out,

    Cheers Mate, good info ;)

    I won't fall for this one again as the mission did not end there.

    Went I went to W/D I realised I'd not played there since all this migrations etc happened and hence never made a deposit with my current bank card.

    Could not withdraw (only other option was Neteller which I do not understand at all, yep dumb I know)

    Live Help said deposit with card and then you can W/D to card which I was all set to do but then realised blumin car Insurance and Sky had come out leaving no funds till next week.

    So this is where I turned into a total hypocrite and did something I NEVER do, needless to say I went to bed last night absolutely MAD with myself.

    Oh Well, we live n learn eh :p (well hopefully anyway)
