    Need to add the choice of "I wouldn't take a slots bonus, but I would a blackjack (or other game) bonus" ... slight difference between that and not taking a bonus at all. :thumbsup:

    No stinking bonus for me! :p Except troubles by cashout and spoiling my fun by play with boring WR calculations brings me nothing! And in rare occasions when I play with bonus I never win! :mad:

    gotta agree bonuses stink! as for WR calculations I once spent hours doing cut and paste between playcheck and excel to see how much I wagered, is there an easier way apart from contacting CS?

    Although early days for this poll, it looks like bonuses are not that popular, so how about some ideas of what we want casinos to offer instead for loyal players. In a BM casino it's easy food, drinks, 69 cents hooker (just kiddin) :D

    :thumbsup: great poll.

    ''deposit $100...get $300 sticky bonus with 4x WR''

    This is also nice.There arent many casinos that offer %300 sticky bonus with 4xWR(only goldenpalace,onlinecasino.com,and a few)
    General is 100% sticky bonus with 4x wagering. requirements.

    Agree, for all the hassle bonuses bring I hardly except them these days.
    Plus when play the WR for a bonus I win but just not enough to meet the WR or maybe cash out $50 - $100 at the end.

    Can't see the point in playing for hours to come out even or worse.

    Bonuses

    I still like bonuses, as there seems little else on offer. I would take a slots bonus that risks a small amount for a large bonus, such as the 50 for 200 variety. 20x playthrough is not so bad on this, and even a 30x would be OK. The main way I would play this is to go for a decent bonus round on one or two of the free spin slots, and if I get lucky I would complete the WR on a low stake low variance slot. I have found the 3 reel 800/1600 jackpot slots good, as well as simple video slots such as Carnaval if they allow low stakes. I also run the free spins slots on the 0.01 coin, which can allow stakes as little as 0.09.

    If bonuses were to go, then I would like to see one or more of the following tried:-

    1) Much better loyalty cashback rates than the current 0.1% or less.
    2) Better % payback on the slots games to match the table poker games at least - I would prefer around 99%, this should be achievable with low overheads and high play volumes.
    3) Worthwhile prizes in competitions, such that the prize has a reasonable chance of being worth the wagering involved.

    As bonuses will stay for now, I would like to see the end of all the complications, such as excluded games and hard to calculate WR (seems MG casinos have at last begun to roll out this idea)
    All bonuses must be claimed by the player if ANY strings are attached, rather than being put into a players account where they may fail to notice. This gives players the choice to not play bonuses, but without having to keep contacting CS to have them removed.
    A bonus account, but managed properly and not as a device to trap players. The real account NOT to be encumbered by funds in the bonus account, any danger of "not risking own funds" can be addressed by stipulating that a bonus is earned by total playthrough, not by depositing a certain amount which is then trapped till the whole WR is met.

    Until something better comes along, I will still deposit where the best bonus offers are before depositing where there are none. I will ignore bonuses where the WR are too steep.

    Well Simmo, I was going to offer to teach you a few phrases in French, but I'm afraid the ones I know would only succeed in getting you a slap in the face, lol. :D
