Hi

I am having diffuclties in understanding those bonus things. I just read in the PAB section...and the complaints "player played too funky with the bonus"
or - not in the spirit of the bonus.

Sure, if I get a bonus there are games that are allowed and some are not. Gotta ask before you play. Thats ok.
BUT
"played too funky" or "not in the spirit of the bonus" or similar things/terms.. if I get a bonus and I throw it in a slot - isn`t it my cup of tea HOW I play with the bonus...even if I make a 90$ spin...and risk all the stuff....it is my money. Or is this false thinking?:confused:

Whats the story behind those bonus stuff?

Greetings
Edward

that is also why i won't use them and after thinking about it awhile ago and asking peoples advice i decided that if all i got is $20 and it lasts only 10 minutes then at least that was 10 minutes i coulda won without some clown at a casino saying oh well you took the bonus we offered but because you had the misfortion of winning we must now lock your account and confiscate the money so sorry

Briefly (I'm late for work!) the most common type of bonus 'abuse' is when players deposit for a bonus and then place their entire balance on one hand of BJ, Red on Roulette, etc... If they win they are then playing with four times their deposit amount which makes 'grinding out' the WR on very low house edge games extremely likely to be profitable.
So although they have not actually broken any specific T&C, some casinos say this is not 'in the spirit of the bonus' because it is not the way people normally play when they don't have a bonus.

If you play only slots I would say you have a 0.000000001% chance of being called an abuser! ;)

Personally i think any casino that would state anything along the lines of
" not played in the spirit of the bonus " is talking complete crap and should be avoided !

The way i see it is that by taking a bonus you are entering into an agreement with the casino
The casino gives you a bonus...
You agree to the bonus Terms and Conditions... SIMPLE !
Now what is hard about that ?
If the casino doesn't want you to play a certain way, put it in the Terms...its not rocket science.

The answer is simple. Play at casinos that dont do that! :thumbsup: I use bonuses all the time, would never play without one and never have had any problem cashing out after ive finished with a bonus
