Question about No-Deposit Bonuses

    First of all, if this has been asked before, since I am still new here, please forgive me and point me to the appropriate thread so that I may read up on it without wasting anyone else's time.

    I have a couple questions about what might be considered bonus abuse.

    I recently signed up at several casinos that offer no-deposit bonuses. Upon receiving the bonuses, I successfully wagered them all the way down to $0 and did not make any cashouts.

    Is this considered bonus abuse? I do not have more than one account at any one casino, I gave 100% accurate credentials on each one, and I honestly intend to make deposits at each casino.

    If I happen to hit a decent win on a future deposit, can I expect trouble trying to withdraw? I guess I'm just looking for confirmation that I won't end up on a player blacklist before I have deposited at each casino... has anyone else eaten up the no-deposit bonuses and had problems later because of it?

    Thanks in advance! :thumbsup:

    I'm certainly no pro, but I think that is exactly what the casino wants you to do! Lose the bonus so you start chasing it with your own money. Most if not all casinos I have used erase the wagering requirements from previously zero'd out bonuses. Something you may have to watch though is that if you haven't met wagering requirements at some casino's they will make you clear them before receiving future deposit bonuses.
    And just a little off the cuff advice here, but if you haven't managed to come ahead on any of the no-deposit bonuses I would really think twice about playing for your own money, or at the very least make sure you have a budget for 'money to throw away' so as to keep yourself out of trouble.

    Thank you all

    Thank you all for your replies. I agree that this is what they want us to do, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't starting off on the wrong foot.

    I hear that. A $10 or $15 bonus that you have to wager 15 to 45 times on slots doesn't last long when you don't hit anything big. As far as using real money, I have a separate checking account which I call my "fun" account, and only 10% of each paycheck goes into it. Once that gets used up, that's it until next payday. :thumbsup:

    Bonus abuse

    If a group of casinos is offering free money on signups and you open an account on each of the casinos of the same group and use the promotion... most likely they won't even let you take advantage of it.

    I believe the term bonus abuser is obsolete... Casinos are now aware on how people try to scam them and won't even allow them to even try to make winnings out of it.

    Example, let say a group of casinos is offering 200% bonus on all their casinos, so you open an account and take advantage of it and lose. You open an account on the next one... take adavantage of it and lose... and then you open an account on the next one, take advantage of it, and hit $5000.. .you withdrawal.. after this, I am sure most likely they will not authorize any more bonuses for you on that casino group.

    They have learned the patterns of bonus abusers so is hard for some one to try to pull a scam with bonuses

    Experienced casinos will also have on their terms and conditions a policy that they can deny a bonus to anyone they want to. Nothing illegal on that.. may be just bad morally.. but they can.

    I play at Prima Poker Network, and you might try to get their $10 free promotion on all their accounts, but why do it? if you make any winnings they might give you a hard time.

    For the player who tries to scam casinos, there is some good advise in this site: "Remember the people behind this business were not born yesterday" If you think you know a trick, they might know 4000...

    Not a scammer

    Let me be clear here: I am neither scamming nor trying to scam any casino. I am making deposits at every casino I signed up at.

    Naw. I dont think Watchdog's statement was directed at you. It was just a general comment.

    On the subject of bonus abuse, a casino or a group of casinos can now easily detect immediately whether you are from the same household opening multiple accounts. A couple of days ago my wife opened an account at Slots.com for the sake of taking out their no-deposit bonus of $10 to try them out. She was unaware that I had an account with them more than 3 years ago but that havent played there since losing my deposit of $100 there. Within 24 hours, I received an e-mail telling me that my wife's account had been closed because we are from the same household. That's fine with me as we should abide with their terms. However, this simply tells me that if casinos wanted to prevent people from opening multiple accounts and hence multiple sign-up bonuses they could easily have avoided them as shown this experience. Instead of crediting the bonus in the 2nd and further accounts, simply send an e-mail and say these are duplicated accounts and the accounts are hence closed and no sign-up bonuses will be credited. Rather, some casinos will gladly give the sign-up bonuses to you and deny winnings by claiming bonus abuse. Like slots.com they could have avoided them in the first place.

    Sorry.. I really wasn´t calling you a bonus seeker or abuser... or a scammer...

    I have open tons of accounts that I have not funded... As a matter of fact I have only put real money online at poker time, igotpoker and poker stars... I love poker.. Casinos I like them land based... You can control yourself better when you have an addiction with online poker. I am planning on depositing at mummysgold.. or at the riverbelle.. I like 3card from microgaming casinos, Easy money... however due to the recent events at some sites I am waiting for a good one. I believe Riverbelle denied me access because of being from Costa Rica... I might try All Slots.. dunno yet

    I was just trying to tell how some casinos might react to people trying to take as much promotions they can from an specific group of casinos..

    I didn´t meant to offend..

    But don´t we all love free money???? There is something of bonus abuser on every player...jjajaj the more we get, the more we play...

    No Problem

    No offense taken. Thank you for clarifying! :)

    That makes two of us... :D

    I deposited $25 there for the Buy $25 Get $100 promotion but lost it all rather quickly. By looking at the Winner Screenshots thread I must be the only one who was unable to win at All Slots :rolleyes:

    No argument there! :thumbsup:

    Have a good one, and GOOD LUCK!!
