I too can say I was somewhat hard done by playing at go wild.

I had signed up and started playing the Tourneys since I wasnt going to deposit until the end of the month.

I played 1 of the tourneys run by MG (the hourly $50 1), came 5th or so and got a whopping $3 :D


anyways I played at gowild, managed to meet wr and have some wins with it. Went to cashout $28 (or something along thoese lines)

They asked for ID... sent... all fine...

then days on they demanded I must make a minimum deposit in order to cashout anything... fair enough but what made it worse is the fact I would of been forced to take the wild welcome bonus on that deposit...

So wheres the sence? I won that $28 fair and square... but the only way to cash it out would be to deposit... take their bonus... meet WR and cashout. However the chances are I wouldnt of met WR so hardly worth it for $28.

After that I uninstalled and when I did have money which i would of deposited there I just didnt bother

I don't think you're actually forced to take the bonus. I would have double checked that. If you don't wager before you request it, most casinos will remove a bonus. Any casinos I know of, anyway.

I did double check and they told me:

"We would like to inform you that in order for you to receive your winnings, you are required to make your first deposit (of minimum 20 or more) and to complete at least half of the playthrough requirement for your first deposit bonus. "

So it worked out that if I deposited the winnings would be in play and with the amount of wagering needed it would not be worth playing since when I meet half WR my balance may be empty.

Felcie - didnt quite understand your post but if it was asking what was the point of cashing out that low amount then its simple...

I won it from playing with just a few bucks I won from a tourney. The WR from that bonus amount was met. I had an amount I could of cashed out... It would of been no logic to play on because where would the playtime end with such a small amount??.... when my balance was empty.

The tournament was run by MG.. (The 1s that are on all mg casinos). It wasnt directly run by gowild. I had already met WR for the few bucks winnings and they refused to pay me unless I deposited and met another set of WR for a bonus.

Had they let me deposit and withdraw all of it or given me the option to remove the bonus I would of course done it but that wasnt the case.

First, since when is there a playthrough on winnings from a networkwide tourney?
As far as I know prizes won in a MG tourney are cash, no WR.

Second, that rule kinda sucks because of the mandatory bonus, but almost every casino requires a deposit before you can cash out.
Never found that to be unreasonable..
But as I understand you're letting them have the winnings now?:confused:

Why dont you just make a minimum deposit and try your luck?
Put in 20.-, get a 20.- bonus, play and if you win, you win, and if you lose you can take out the 28.- so you still have a small profit.:D

Too late now the winnings were lost. This was a month or so ago.

Thanks to play at rivals and being "robbed" out of £1000's from taking bonuses where I never once met WR I no longer take bonuses at any casino.

I would of certainly played my own cash at gowild. However since they forced a bonus upon me I decided they are not going to be having any money out of my wallet :p

So you already played and lost what you won in the tourney?

Was that before or after this discussion started? lol

before... since the topic was regarding something to do with go wild I though it was relevant to post my experience of them ;)
