Earth, man!
Well I wish I'd never bothered depositing now :mad: I depostied 75eur for 100% sign up bonus only to realize that A) I wouldn't get it for 48hrs and B) I had to earn it with wagering first. LOLOL what a fukin joke, this is not a sign up bonus. It could take 5 or more depsoits to earn it. Shame, I was looking forward to playing some new games, instead the 50000 pyramid rinsed my 75 giving me about 250 in wagering which is not even close.

If their not even prepared to give some free chips to new players helping them get a bit more fun out the casino, play a few more games and find out whats what bearing in mind the depsoit + bonus have to wagered 25* anyway before withdrawls can be made then I for one wont be returning.

This method of "bonus" is quite common practice among the casinos run by UK bookmakers and seems to be the norm at Wagerworks casinos too. From my own personal experience, I like it as from a loyal player perspective once the monthly match arrives, you know you haven't got to worry about wagering.

But from a bonus players perspective, I can see how it doesn't work.

Well I'm a little surprised to have to tell a frequent CM visitor this, but to remind everyone:-
Read the bonus T&C,s before you deposit!!!

It is post-wager, but as Simmo says it is still a good bonus and it certainly helps keep the 'bonus abusers' away..
"What, gamble with my own money! Are you having a laugh? :eek: "

And just to correct one point, the WR is Deposit x 25 only. Once the bonus is released into your account it is yours to withdraw immediately... if you can drag yourself away from their great slots! :rolleyes:
