I take lots of bonus money. It is free money and have won big on it or I lose it all. I will only take if losing all the bonus will zero the playthrough requirments.

It depends some bonus are crazy with there wager. Last week I deposit $60 to casino webcam and they asked if I wanted a $30 bonus but I would have to wager around $6000. That does not give me alot of money to play with so I didnt take it. It's all about what the wager is and how much you have to play with. Sometimes bonuses are not good and you can win money and withdraw it with out the wager. Be aware that some wagers dont accept some games also so if you play a certain game only and get a bonus you might not beat you wager even if you beat it becuase of the game you played.

Pretty much every bonus can be played with positive expectation. It might carry a shitload of variance to do it though.

I always takes the bonus - but the following have to be fulfiled

1. BJ and VideoPoker must be allowed

2. Wagering req. not more than 20 x deposit and bonus

3. if its a sticky bonus - not more than 10-12 times wagering req.

4. I only play at RTG (that means almost never), MicroGaming, Playtech, Chartwell or BossMedia.
...sometimes futurebet if the bonus is really good

If you are playing for entertainment, then don't ever take a bonus.

If you want to make money in the long run, always.

Sorry, but that first bit does not make much sense!
If you are playing for entertainment only (i.e. you don't care if you lose your deposit), you might as well take the bonus so you get more playing time for your buck! :D

GI Joe: Wagerworks have some decent bonuses too! :thumbsup:

I'll always take advantage of the bonus, especially those that offer money with no deposit. Some will even allow cashing it out if you reach $50 or higher.
