    Not one casino has offered me anything for my birthday last year got some free spins from Go Wild but this year not even a bonus offer the only companies who sent me anything were Wild Jack & Allslots which was just happy birthday I haven't even played there for four or five years.

    The casinos companies are so stingy these days.

    can't hurt; if you've already got nothing, there's nothing to lose

    Happy Birthday :thumbsup:

    I have personally never understood why so many players are expecting a birthday bonus from casinos. Players should not use their birthday to gamble anyway. I have for example never received a birthday gift from my insurance company or my local store. Why casinos?

    Hope you enjoyed your day :D

    I guess we expect them, because here, land-based ones send out birthday cards with redeemable money vouchers for birthdays and several online casinos DO send out freebs for birthdays.
    As to why gamble on my birthday? Because I don't go out and party the whole 24 hours; just because I redeem the freebie, doesn't mean I have to play it right away

    Another Casinomeister member just pointed out to me that he got nothing for his recent birthday from us.
    Which led me to discover that our auto birthday bonus emails haven't been sent for the past couple of weeks... oops!

    So if you, or anyone else with an active account at one of our brands had a birthday recently and didn't get anything please let me know.

    Oh and I know your details so no blagging, and no signing up now and claiming a bonus for your birthday in February... :)

    All the best, and belated Happy Birthday!

    Andy

    I used to get loads of promos during my birthday, now it's the occasional 'deposit $100 get $10 free with 50x WR' :lolup:

    Gambling is supposed to be entertainment. Most bars will pour regulars a pint on the house, many restaurants offer a free dessert, sometimes even a free meal. The movie gift packs to stuff stockings always have an extra coupon for your birthday, etc.

    To my mind, it makes more sense to comp players for their birthdays rather than for holidays that are shared with everyone, in terms of spreading the costs out over a period of time.

    A max cashout and big WR should keep costs down, while making loyal players feel valued.

    Are you high? I'm going to pretend you are if you're not. :) My birthday is when I feel the luckiest!

    PS... I LOVE birthday bonus'...they make you feel special and its always been part of the PERKS... so if you stop getting them ...you notice.
    The Monte Carlo in Vegas would send us open plane tickets on mine AND my dh's birthday back when we frequented Vegas....why should online casinos be any different if you are pouring money into them? When you spend a lot...its personal. Schmoozing is the best marketing strategy....win/win
    You should maybe watch a few episodes of Las Vegas ;)

    I'd trade a birthday bonus for a balance higher than my deposit once in a while.

    Hehe...yeah. That is what I do. I get high and then I go on Casinomeister and write crazy things :thumbsup:

    Remember that the RTP percentage in land based casinos is like 50% (ok...maybe a bit higher, but still :p) so of course they can afford to fly you around the world etc on your birthday :D

    Your out of your league, kid. Wanda seems like a mature, sophisticated Vegas traveler and knows
    a thing or two about a thing or two when it comes down to Vegas casino comps and how they operate. How many times
    have you visited Vegas and dropped a couple grand into the high-roller rooms? ;)

    As for the freebies on your birthday topic... A gambler's thought process usually goes a little something like this. "I've dropped
    XXX dollars into this online casino over the past year and received NOTHING on my birthday? Well... I'm gonna get even and send
    them an email asking them to close my account. This will not stand
    ". That could have been easily resolved by the online casino
    by merely sending the depositing player a measly $25 ND bonus with a max cash out. Period.

    We're planning a B&M casino trip for my B'day next month. I already have my usual offers ... free room for 3 nights, free food, freeplay $ .... And I'm pretty certain there will be a little extra B'day offer arrive in the mail next month before my B'day. For some silly reason they don't hold my little $1800+ jackpot against me -- couldn't be because they know if I keep coming back, they're very likely to get it all back +$ could it? LOL

    Online casinos are totally out to lunch when it comes to player retention.

    HA...that just made me giggle....at least you sound fun...maybe I got the wrong impression of you ;)

    While I agree with you about the percentages, you actually proved my point. I dont expect the same treatment from online casinos as land based, but promos on a lesser scale should be expected...its all part of the game and enticing players to be loyal. Unfortunately the loyalty factor/focus is rare online and casinos seem to put more focus on enticing new players with big "new player" bonus'. With the play time diminishing more and more many of us tend to hop to casinos who do offer bonus' just to get that play time in and not feel so beat up. So why not offer those bonus' or incentives to players who will drop their money into your casino consistently?...we are going to play, we are going to make deposits so why not cater to that simple fact and make your casino the one we WANT to play in?

    Back when times were good, Platinum Play used to send gifts, like a fancy box of silver dice...and a card that said they gave you a $100 chip. I played there more than any other casino b/c they made you feel like loyalty mattered. It was a win/win.

    IMHO, the gigantic new player bonus' cause a lot of morons to want to try to cheat the system and they end up cheating themselves when they try to cash out. But I often wonder if some of the casinos do it on purpose knowing some people will forget where they have played, make a deposit or several deposits and once they try to withdraw they are called out as cheaters. With technology in constant progression you would think the casino would know right away if someone is trying to open another account.
    We get emails all the time from places who should be well aware that we already have an account...straight from the casino, not an affiliate, so one has to wonder if some casinos just hope they are going to catch you not paying attention. Its gotten really shady so it would be nice to have one place where I know for sure they will take care of me like they do in Vegas...again on a smaller scale...so far that has not happened in years.

    I believe in loyalty and personal attention, my business survives and thrives on it.

    There is a flip side to this coin worth mentioning. I for one think birthday bonuses are a nice thing to have, and we have them at Butlers Bingo... but please dont underestimate the extent of abuse and fraud they attract.

    Multipler accounters try to redeem dozens of birthday bonuses on the same day.... bonus hunters open accounts with fake birth dates (The amount of people who seem to open an account JUST before their birthday is rather unusual...).. frausdsters claim they didn't get the correct birthday bonus or that they were promised a bigger one.... you get the idea.

    Bottom line it just became such a headache for some casinos that it was easier to scrap them all together. The same thing happened to a lot of 'refer-a-freind' offers, which were also rife with fraud.

    Yes... some casinos are just stingy, but imo the main reason these offers are dwindling is the selfish players who abuse the offers and ruin it for everyone else.

    All that said, I hope you had a Happy one... and make sure to have your account open with Butlers Bingo in plenty of time to get a bonus from us next year ;)

    :lolup: Sounds like me!

    I think rainmaker just meant that gambling is maybe not the coolest way to spent your birthday, and that is correct in some ways,
    but a day is long, and most birthday bonuses i got weren't tied to that specific day: some i got a few days prior, and others were valid in the whole week, or even longer.
    I like to play with b-day chips in the morning, with my coffee, and maybe hit big to set a good mood, if i lose, like this year, it's an extra incentive to make extra fun during the party:)
    Sometimes i play b-day bonuses when i get back drunk, also quite fun..
    I do remember what casinos sent me on my birthday, and i actually put a value on it.
    The occassional "hurray! we offer you 10% up to 20" slips through, and will never get serious business from me:what:
    I do feel appreciated when i get a small NDB, or a juicy match up, or both, from casinos i rarely play at.
    I also expect my regular casinos, to throw in something significant.
    This is an unwritten rule, in my book.
