Just rx'd the following from Nostalgia. That "has been deposited" "FREE" thing kinda falls off.

I wish casinos wouldn't do that.

$100 FREE FROM Nostalgia Casino
Hi Xxxxx,

Would you like to increase your chances of winning a once in a lifetime prize?
Time is quickly running out to score the chance of winning a VIP trip to the
World Cup Final, or a $5,000 bonus.

To give you a helping hand, $100 has been deposited into your account
absolutely FREE. To claim your free bonus, simply log into your Real Player
Account: Nosxxxxxxx and make a deposit. We will match your deposit dollar for
dollar up to $100!

This offer is valid from 00:01 EST Friday 21st of April and will expire at
midnight on Sunday 23rd. Your bonus will be credited automatically within 2
hours of your deposit

I hope you have a great weekend and wish you all the best of luck with our
games!

Kind Regards,

Timothy

It would be nice to see advertising agencies go 60 days without using the word "free". That would be a challenge - and probably a productive one at that.

It's the "has been deposited in your account" thing that torqued me off more than the free.

Okay, I misread this. I thought they were offering to do this.

I got three of these...one for UK Casino Club, one for Music Hall and one for Golden Reef. I thought it was my lucky day, lol. Junkmail. If it's a deposit promo, no problem, but say that upfront. I'm with you Moonchica, sort of misleading.

I totally agree and find this type of marketing offensive.

"To give you a helping hand, $100 has been deposited into your account

Free means Free.

Is this yet another example of the right hand not knowing what the left is doing, or is it just another example of the old tricks used by the New Owners at work (Casino Rewards).

Free means Free.

Places like this would never survive in the USA lol...they'd be in court so often, as well as loosing millions for each of the $100 "free" ads they sent out that they'd have to honor - without a deposit.
