Hi,

is anyone out there, that ever has had a good or just normal BJ session on Microgamigs Classic BJs, when playing on a bonus ?

Since some time I take loose track of my play on this game(s), when I'm on a bonus.

I have literally never had a winning session there, out of at least 30 or more.

Its just too strange. 10 min ago was my last one, the dealer won or pushed 26 out of 32 hands.

And it is always the same here. The last 3 times, I really only played it, because I wanted to show myself this is just my bad luck, but wow, it goes on like it.

Why in the world would you play classic BJ on a bonus? This game only counts for two percent :eek: of the WR. So in the end, your playthrough jumps to a whopping 600x!


$100d + $100b = $200*600 = $120,000 playthrough!

I don't think I need to go any further...you get the idea. If you only play classic BJ on a bonus, you have NO chance of ever completing the WR.

Not taking a bonus under those terms or even any terms is well intentioned advice.

You think I am wet behind the ears now, imagine before I discovered this site.

The partial spreadsheet I posted recently from Mansion from Sept.06 had terms where BJ counted 2% against WR towards a potential $1000 or $2000 bonus. I definitely remember that the bonus was not awarded until wagering requirements were met and for some reason I am thinking in two different installments (spreadsheet will show so I can confirm). I am not sure if you could withdraw before meeting WR's or not but I believe it was a bonus designed similar to MG's original EZ bonus concept where you could withdraw at anytime (no voiding of winnings just no bonus awarded until wagering requirments met)! FTR but moot to the point of:

1.$750.00 deposit
2.$62.50 balance reached within several hundred hand with a $50.00 bet in place leaving a $12.50 showing balance before bet
3.Approx. 20000 hands later as I did not bust out reached a balance of $95,000 plus
4.$48,000,000.00 plus (no typo) wagered

No, I do not do this month after month but I actually have this year where in fact if I had taken a bonus on deposits of $1000 or less with BJ counting 2% towards wagering requirements, I would have easily met the wagering requirements at least 10 plus times in 7 1/2 months of play. That's fact and the good news part:oops:. And the bad news is not that I do not take bonuses with deposits.

That said, I can not attempt to answer the OP's question because I do recollect playing Classic (I play Classic) with a bonus but I believe he deserves a response other than the first one received:p

Only played BJ at two MG casino's but at both I had the idea that I was losing more then you would expect with the low house edge of classic BJ. However did not keep count of every session, so can't give you specific numbers, only my feelings towards it (which I already had before reading this thread).

Why do you always want to play through a bonus if you are allowed to forfeit it ??

But I think MG has done some sort of "correction" to bonusplay. Maybe only to players that take many bonuses. But there are too many impossible outcomes since some months.
