Hi gang!

I have a "bonus" complaint! No, not really............ just remembering the good old days. Back when there

were no wagering reqs. and lists of rules.....

In 1999, I was new to on-line gaming and playing at Pogo.com. One of the little adverts was for

EnglishHarbour (Microgaming then) and I thought what the hell.... it's a free $20.00... can't be real anyway!

No wagering, that I knew of, no "send me your faxback or first born", just play and win. Which, I did that

day thru that weekend. On their $20 I played all weekend and cashed out for $925.00! Of course, me being

new to this "on-line" gambling, a little voice in the back of my mind was saying, "They are gonna send YOU

$925.00?? Ha! In my dreams!"" I just knew it was bogus! About 2 weeks went by and sure enough, I had a

check in the mail! My mind was racing! ""Hey, I could win LOTS of money! Just by playing at these places!

For free, no less!!"" I was in awe! I played a lot of "freebies" after that! Had so very much fun! And it was

fun, in the beginning, with the excitement of the chance of winning! Winning something for nothing, no less!

Now, I deposit quite frequently, and mostly avoid bonuses(take a freebie now and then) because they have

become such a pain in the azz!

My how things have changed!

My bonus complaint?? I want a bonus like the bonuses in 1999!!

Yea I have moved away from taking bonuses for the most part.

That SUCKS.:eek: Guessing the city of Chicago adds extra city taxes on top of state taxes for cigs?

Read an article that New Zealand is considering charging $100 a pack

My bike doesn't need any gas, and I smoke for around $25 a month:p

All bonuses that are free...are just free, and other bonuses I don't use.
No complaining for me;)

I know, life isn't fair:eek2:

Tirilej,

I hope you realize I was just joking, well, kinda............. remembering when..................;)

I know:) ...and so was I partly:oops:

I wish I could afford to have a car.:oops:
I wish I could afford to by real cigarettes.

But life is what it is and I'm damn good right now to see all positive things in life.
I refuse to let things like money bring me down.:p

Ahhh yes... way back when we (players) weren't so evil, and casinos actually wanted our business (and not just our money)....

I remember when there was so much disparity between US and Canada, it was so much cheaper, fuel is $1.25l or $5.54 gallon (a little larger than US gallon) and smokes are $8-$10 here, I dont smoke so I am lucky there, but living 5 mins from Washington State used to go all the time to fill up, now just for groceries. Back to 1999, Intercasino, original MG Thumper and Max Skyweb software, always got paid and every credit card dep was approved.

Yeah casino bonuses are less appealing than just making a deposit a lot of the times.
It's not like I blame them at all though for not wanting to give away free money left and right.
