    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.

    [​IMG]

    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    requirement before they may be withdrawn (transferred to the Intertops Sportsbook).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."

    hehe....

    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.

    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 a way it's unfortunate that they switched to the "new" MG bonus system.

    Instead of a 7x wagering requirement for video poker, it's now 300x.

    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:

    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?
