I came across MrRingo.com and joined up to try it out with the free 5.5 Euro sign up bonus. After playing that bonus through (only one game was found to play that bonus out with) I was left with 90 Euro's. I then looked into depositing via Visa and found I was unable too. I found their terms and conditions unhelpful in determining the wagering requirements needed in order to obtain the 90 Euro's and suspected that there where hidden terms and conditions. I seem to be correct in my assumption.

The below convo took over 1 hr to complete. While asking questions about depositing the replies where very swift but as soon as I started questioning wagering requirement the replies took ages and where very unhelpful.
Towards the end I learned the only game the site allowed me access too in order to play my wagering for the free 5 .5 euro's was a game that was restricted from being played for the free 5.5 Euros!
I strongly get the impression that what they expect is for punters to take up the free 5.5£ then once they reach what they think is the wagering a punter will deposit.

Upon deposit you are given a 100% bonus. Then the winnings from the 5.5E wagering ( in my case 90E) is required to be played through x 70. But if you achieve that play through the winnings are not made available to you. Instead your expected to then play through your deposit plus the 100% bonus x35. Or the wagering could be first to play through the deposit plus 100% bonus then the wagering requirement for the free 5.5E,which is even worse.
If your wagering of the deposit plus 100% bonus fails then the wagering starts eating into the "winnings" from the 5.5E play through's winnings.
Only then,if a punter achieves such a feat will they learn that they played the original free 5.5E welcome bonus in the "unqualifying" game. Even those savvie enough to dodge the 100% bonus will end up finding they breached their terms due to playing the wrong game.
Please read below.
I would like others to look at this site,try the free bonus,read their terms and conditions and reply with your findings. But I would urge folk not to make a deposit.
Chat started

colin
thank you
Am I able to deposit via Visa?
Sylwia

colin
I had tried last night but was unable too
I presume I should be able to do so without help?
Sylwia
now I checked it why you can´t deposit via Visa
the reason is
that at the moment there is an technical problem
colin
ok
so will I have to wait for long?
I have no other way of depositing
Sylwia
we try to fix the problem as soon as possible but i think it can take some days unfortunatley
colin
one last question
Have I completed the wagering requirements on the welcome bonus?
Sylwia
one moment please
in my account area you can find it yourself and check it :)
colin
yes,but I do not understand it
Can you tell me that I have achieved the wagering on the free welcome bonus?
Sylwia
we are very busy at the moment i´m sorry please read the bonus terms & conditions so you can find out yourself
colin
But I only want to be told if I have met the wagering requirements
please help me?
I do not understand how to read it
Sylwia
I have to look wait a moment please
at the moment your requirement points at 0
colin
Does tat mean I have played through all wagering requirements?
Sylwia
this means you didn´t played like our bonus terms & conditions
please check this on our website again
colin
What do I have to do to meet the requirements please?
Do I have to deposit first then play through the 90 euro's x35?
Sylwia
one moment please
colin
ok
I have waited 5 minutes for a reply already?
It is now over 10 minutes. I only wish for you to clarify what the bonus terms are regarding wagering requirements. Also most of your games are not available to play during the wagering that I played through with the 5 euro welcome bonus and I do not understand why not? I could only find one game that I could use for the 5 euro's play through?
As far as I could understand from your terms and conditions the 5 euro welcome required a x35 wagering then it was free to withdraw. Is that not correct?
More than 15 minutes without reply to me now!
Sylwia
The Bonus terms and conditions you can find the all informations by clicking on the following link: Link Removed (Old/Invalid)
please check it there
you have to wagering it 35 times
colin
But what is "it"?
I played the 5euro welcome bonus x35 so met the wagering requirements
If I deposited and took the 100% bonus will I have to play the 100% bonus plus the deposit x35 then also the 90 euro's x35 before being able to withdraw because that seems to be the case?
Sylwia
but you played games that are not allowed to play with the bonus
you can read this on the bonus conditions
colin
There was only one game I could find that allowed me to play. all others where not available to play

Sylvia then left the conversation

signed up and made a deposit at Mr Ringo after reading many posetive experiences on a other side , I suspect now that they have written their own review .

I made a withdrawal there for almost two weeks ago and has still not received any money, customer service is so slow that a turtle had managed to complete a marathon before they have give you an answer.

Ranked #281 out of 1069 casinos at AG.

Means there are 280 doing a better job, why would you chose a casino with such a low rating to hand over your cash. I wouldn't even bother to register as i will expect just problems and hassle from the start :rolleyes:

Here a few things i found:

Currencies: EURO, Turkish Lira - that is a first!!!

The trouble is that folk get sucked in very easily.
I have been stung in a very similar way very recently and that casino is being scrutinised as I type so I can't say any more.

It gives the impression that you have achieved the required play through of the 5.5 E requirements and all you need to do is deposit in order to withdraw the winnings.
In effect once you have deposited you have very little chance of making a withdrawal on your deposit or the "win" and even if you do they can void it because you played your none deposit bonus in an invalid game. Despite that game being the only game available to play because the rest are inaccessible to you.

It doesn't show the 5.5 EUR offer at my end, probably geo-blocked. The way i read it that

- you wager first with the 5.50
- then you need to deposit to be able to withdraw
- but they slam the Welcome SUB on top
- now you have to wager those too and you start playing some games
- but since only 1 game is allowed with the 5.50 and you still have those winnings from that you are still limited to that 1 game
- hence, pretty much everyone will break the rules.

Right or did i understand it wrong? If it is right, then a pretty cheeky set-up. :rolleyes: :mad:

Here is the link I found. I use this link to alert me to new casino's and their welcome deals as I like to try new casino's out.

casinocashjourney.com/new_online_casinos.htm There is a link to the deal and the casino in there.

As I understand it after the winnings from the 5.5 EUR are played through you then play the deposit plus 100% bonus x 25 and if that is not achieved then the winnings from the 5.5E winnings is eaten into as part of the x25 wagering. Yes,even if you achieve that you have erred on the rules by playing an invalid game

Cheers for the link. Quite a list which includes some pretty rogue ones too, e.g. Playros...... see the award they won at CM: https://www.casinomeister.com/casino-awards/year-2015/tangled-web-award-2015/

I would probably try a few as well but i would not deposit anything more than 10 bucks as a verification depo to get the winnings from the freebie. If that wouldn't work they would go straight into the "never again" folder.

That is my approach too to some selected casino's. I did not deposit at Mr Ringo. Upon pressing CS she told me that my 90EUR winnings was not played out at all. Which means that they where still subject to x70 wagering and even them would not be withdrawable. I'm living and learning still about this online casino business

I have been pretty active for some time in this site if you check it out. If you care to read the OP I invite folk to join and use the free welcome bonus to check the site out for themselves but not to deposit. I did this to encourage informed feedback. They are eccepting UK players.
I also state I have a complaint of a similar practice from a different site that is under investigation. Casinomeister are dealing with it.

My OP is purely posted for the benefit of Casinomeisters's members . I am using these boards for what they are intended- to inform and warn.

What exactly is it about my OP that makes you consider me "dodgy" ?

Even more strange, the casino has no UKGC registration number/ no UKGC logo?

im not sure you can accept UK customers if your license is pending

Interesting concept. Their software can disable games during bonus play, but they use this to disable VALID games and leave players invalid games to play and thus void any winnings. Probably a good thing that the UKGC haven't yet given them a licence, but it would be a poor reflection on the UKGC if they eventually did.

This is exactly why I have brought this site to attention. It is dodgy. UK players can sign up. UK players can play the games,but only the invalid games, of which there is no indication of them being so. UK players can deposit and CS are only too quick to assist you with doing if you request it. But ask them for clarification and they do not respond for 10 minutes and when they do it is very vague or more likely they simply refer you to their very vague terms and conditions.
Most punters will simply blame themselves and not complain.
I invite others from the uk to use the link I provided in the last page to take the 5.5 EUR free welcome and see for yourselves. I susppect that you will not bust out. Instead you will win a load. This is where a punter feels encouraged to deposit in order to withdraw their "winnings".


I am curious about this because if everyone "wins" from the welcome free 5.5EUR then does it not indicate that casino's can manipulate the return to player quota?
