I just got this email from Intertops :thumbsup: Good news in my opinion



Intertops is proud to introduce the new Intertops Bonus
System which will come in to effect on February 5th.

The new Intertops Bonus System is an innovative,
easy-to-use account management tool that makes your
gaming experience easier and even more enjoyable.

Join us now and experience the beginning of a new and better era.

Look below for more details:

Intertops Casino Bonus System


Introduction

The Intertops Casino Bonus System is a an easy way for you to manage
your bonuses utilizing Microgaming's innovative management system.

Under the Intertops Casino Bonus System, a player's casino account is divided
into a cash balance and a bonus balance. Players deposit into their cash
balance and bonuses are credited into their bonus balance.

When playing, both balances are combined to form the player's total balance
and in Viper you can mouse over your balance during game play to see the separate balances. See the screenshot below.

As you play and meet the wagering requirements the bonus balance will automatically
be transferred to your cash balance incrementally. All games can be played in order
meet the thirty times bonus wagering requirements, however, different games contribute
different amounts - see the terms and conditions below.

You may only transfer your cash balance out of the casino, at which point unused bonus
balances will be forfeited.

Terms and Conditions:
Bonuses credited to a player's bonus balance are subject to a minimum playthrough
requirement before they may be withdrawn (transferred to the Intertops Sportsbook).

Regular Players are subject to a 30 times playthrough before bonus credits are
transferred into their cash balance.

As the required playthrough requirement is met, funds are automatically
transferred from a player's bonus balance to his cash balance in
increments of 10 credits.

Different games played contribute a different percentage of the wager - up to
100%, towards the required playthrough. Games played will contribute in the
following percentages:

Slots, American Roulette and Parlor Games 100%
Table Poker games, Sicbo and all Roulettes except American Roulette 50%
Video Poker games, Craps 10%
Casino War, Baccarat and all forms of Blackjack 2%.
For example, to meet the 30x playthrough requirement on a 10 credit bonus,
the player may wager 300 credits on slots or 600 credits on table poker.

All wagers made using the gamble feature will not be counted towards fulfilling
wagering requirements.

If a player makes a withdrawal (transfer to the Intertops Sportsbook), he will lose any
bonus credits remaining in his bonus balance, which will immediately be reset to zero.

Reversing all or part of a withdrawal (transferring back to the Intertops Casino) will not
restore a player's bonus balance.

Winnings on wagers made from a player's cash balance are credited directly to his cash balance.

Winnings on wagers made from a player's bonus balance are credited to his bonus balance; however, if crediting the winnings would result in the bonus balance exceeding the amount of bonuses for which the above playthrough requirements have not yet been fulfilled, any excess winnings are credited to the player's cash balance.

The decision of the Casino regarding bonuses is final, and no correspondence will be entered into.

All bonuses are subject to Intertops.com Casino. terms and conditions.

I got this email as well...

How do they consider this "new", when it's been in place at many other MG casinos for some time now? :confused:

I think I'll be spending my money at other MG's, due to this nice clause:

Sounds like a dictatorship to me. "What we say goes, and we won't listen to anything you have to say about it."

Well, judging by the last statement on that page, it could be taken as a complaint. :D

I have seen similar statements, but at rogue casinos. It sounds like the fiasco at the other casino that's going on now where they're confiscating winnings derived from a bonus, and pointing to their terms and saying that they're well within their rights to do so.

Some of us are stuck with Intertops.. some really stuck
because it is the only Micro they can play...:oops:

I do like them though, especially their little atm card for cashouts..
They have always treated me and my players well..
but you are right that clause is a lame so will let the know:lolup:

I emailed Intertops, so I think/hope we will see a rewording of
that last statement winbig :thumbsup:


"Some players have pointed out the statement is a bit rougish, so a little word changing could go a long way , and of course you listen to people , so the statement is a bit harsh"

In my opinion the MG bonus system is the worst going. The loyalty program really sucks. You have to wager and wager and wager just to get 2500 points. When you redeem your big $2.50, you then have to meet wager requirements on it!! I got a birthday bonus the other day that was 20000 points. It was nice of them to send it, but even though it looks big, it's only 20 bucks (with WR). I rarely use the other bonuses. I will take the 35% weekly match once in awhile after I've deposited and busted out, but it is much easier to just play with cash. Cash In - Cash OUT!!

It's 5,000 minimum at Grand Mondial :rolleyes:

You do not have enough Loyalty Points to redeem
You have not earned enough Loyalty Points yet. The minimum Loyalty Points required to start redeeming is 5,000.

When it comes to comps, MG should take a lesson from RTG for a change. At least with RTG you can cash in $1 if you wanted to....oh yea, with no WR.

Quick question:

Do you have to cash your points (MG) in certain increments such as 2500, 5000, etc? If so, I think that's total BS. You should get back every penny that you've earned, not some figure that's rounded down to the nearest dollar (Or 5) just to make it easier for the casino. :what:


Besides, what do they care if you cash in $7.33 instead of $5? It's not like they're doing any of the computations, the software is.

Meanwhile I could not stand it, so had to go
look for the new games at Intertops after all this talk (not yet reased there:rolleyes: )
I found $5.. it was not in the bonus balance,
but in the cash balance:notworthy ...maybe a short term glitch
or my good karma:lolup: or probably just a promo credit from a few
days ago before the new system

Rival definitely has the most generous comps. 3Dice would be a close second.

With MG it's just too difficult and costly to get back a tiny fraction of the losses you will incur wagering such a ridiculous amount (1000:1 on slots, come on!).

Pacers - not all MG's apply a WR to your comps. You may want to play at a different MG if possible. As far as I know - if they haven't changed in the last year and a half - Jackpot Factory and Crazy Vegas give them to you as cash.

I find RTG comps to be just as stingy as MG. It's possible that it's just iNetBet, I think Club World has a better ratio. At iNetBet I would guess it's the same 1000:1 that MG uses because it takes a lot of deposits to get the minimum of 50 points for $5.

Comps are somewhat of a gimmick, too. I think I subconsciously keep trying to make it to the next level so I can earn more comps, which is ridiculous since they rarely add up to anything useful. I did manage to earn over $200 in comps a few times at different MG's back in 2006.

I've never understood why they have a system of comps based on wagering. If I deposit and lose fast I'll generate nothing in comps and no more play. The only time to generate any comps is when you start winning a bit, and that's not really when most people would care about getting a few bucks extra?

Is there any casino out there that actually checks for those 'deposit $50 and wager $100 total' runs that happens far too often and gives some bonus when it actually makes a difference?

I am a bit dense.. I think you are asking if there are casinos
that give you a deposit bonus then an extra bonus if you deposit and wager
a certain amount on slots or a specific game? Win or loose?:what:

Many of the Rivals do that and Sloto'Cash tends
to do those frequently. They have one today that is buy
$100 (use 50% or not) and wager $100 and you receive
$24 credits in 2 days. They do them for buy $50 deals
also and sometimes are game specific.

If I am way off base please ignore my post:oops::lolup:

No, doesn't really matter if you get a bonus on the first deposit. What I mean is some kind of reverse comps, when you get to play almost nothing on your deposit, that's when I would want to get some comps.

I'm sure there must be some casino out there smart enough to scan the game logs looking for people busting out on their deposit in very little play and giving them some free chips instead of a comp system where most lowrollers will never get to redeem even $5?

Ok.. now I get you... that is like loyalty freebies..
Rivals tend to send them out weekly and monthly.. I get them
from one of the Rivals 2 or 3 times a week.. as far as Microgaming
your best bet would be emailing and asking.
At Simon Says I got one after my first deposit, without asking.

Losing fast: I tell everyone to send a sweet little note to support
(especially if you did not claim a bonus and lost fast) including the fact that you adore the casino
but have had poor luck and could really use a little action... of course
including account name so it is easy for them..
That works many times:thumbsup:

GOOD Luck to you and may the bonus gods smile on you:notworthy

iNetBet gives out a monthly bonus (with WR and max cashout) based somehow on your losses the previous month.

I can't speak for all Rival casinos, but Cocoa tends to give out a weekly bonus based on your losses. This also has a WR and usually has a minimum cashout, sometimes a max cashout as well.

Apparently iNet doesn't care too much about the mid-3 figure depositers. I lost around 400 one month and didn't get a penny the next. :rolleyes:
