The best thing is to let it go and play elsewhere, a good bonus is hard to come by these days, a couple of years back a different story. Don’t blame you for asking for a goodwill bonus, many casinos offer cashback/random promotions if you just keep firing money in and not getting any sort of promotion from them what’s the harm in asking! Certain places will reward you more than others, I used to play at Ladbrokes a lot and you’d earn ‘comp points’ to redeem for cash, wagering a fair amount (not even anything ridiculous) these quickly stacked up and were nice to redeem after a losing session and spin back up to a decent bankroll. Then they did away with them and I remember at one point having a big loss and being offered 10 free spins at 10p each despite being on their Silver ‘VIP’ tier :what:

I play mainly at one place now and they usually drop me in £50 odd a week regardless of win/lose and of course that makes me pretty much bin off playing elsewhere! Play around at some different places and you’ll soon learn where to be ‘loyal’ to and where you’re valued. There’s tons of places to play and if you don’t feel appreciated just take your custom elsewhere. That’s the only way places start to change their policies:)

Read of similar in recent(ish) times and IIRC the OP was not best pleased in that situation either, I do feel for you.

How times change however, a few years ago I was reading regular posts how support were throwing out freebies just to keep players active and as a customer at their particular casinos :rolleyes:
I remember one time i was talking to the support at Chanz.
Were some issues with a game i wanted to play.
He couldnt tell me when it would be fixed, but recommended two clones from other providers.

I say cheers, and that i will try them out next time i deposit.
"Ive added a €10 bonus to your account so you can try them now if you feel like it"

Ah, the good old days.
:p

When this thread began, I actually thought the reason for the OP's complaint was being misunderstood, as the way I read it was that he has asked for the possibility of a small bonus, was refused - which he accepted - but then arbitrarily had two accounts closed due to this request being interpreted by the casino as an indication of a RG issue.

The responses from CM members ranged along the lines of:
"Why exactly were you trying so hard to beg $10 from the casino?"
"Bonus request can and should be considered possible sign of gambling problem, if somebody go to pub and start to ask free drink so passionately, i would think that one could have some sort of problem. These requests really have started to take as signs..."
'"Can i get a tenner?" to be at least somehow strong approach.'

I certainly didn't see any indication of the OP "passionately asking" for anything, and "Can I get a tenner" is a request - certainly not a strong approach.

Regarding the bonus request, this is an industry which, as bamberfishcake correctly states, have "dished out freebies upons request...", so this request was nothing out of the ordinary.

So at this moment, I must admit I was rather perplexed at some of the responses the OP was receiving.
Until post #25, and at that point, all my sympathy for the OP's situation went out the window. Talk about a rude, repulsive and abhorrent reply.

I think Halvor was spot on right at the beginning, with the comment: "I'm gonna go out on a limb here, but I assume you did not respond to kindly and starter arguing over their decision not to give you a bonus?"

We only have the OP's word that all the emails and convo's he posted here were complete, but if post @25 is an indication of how he speaks to people, then I have no doubt he is very proficient at using an editing tool for his own benefit.

Which is what he has proven to be - an absolute tool.

Silly prick calling me a paddy ffs the irony

Would you have preferred it if he had called you a potato picking retard who f*cks paddies? :p


I'm quite impressed with the amount of P's in one sentence.

Yeah. And he managed it without talking about his mate Peter Piper, who picked a peck of pickled peppers.

Maybe we should write a new version of that by way of tribute to our soon to be ban hammered Welsh "friend"

Its not such a crime, a loyal player asking if a little freebee is possible even in these weird times,
at one time regular bonuses would be offered to keep good players happy, really should not trigger
assumptions that players have a problem and end up with accounts being locked and result in intrusive
allegations and questions.
Its a horrible situation mainly of the UKGC,s making.About time they all realized that players are
actually customers and should be treated as such.
Agree. A few years back if you had a particularly rough session, there was little harm in asking for a freebie. The casino staff were generally polite and often put in a goodwill gesture, even if it was just £5. It was the token gesture that counted.

Nowadays if you have the gumption to ask you get a shitty attitude from chat and made to feel like a scrounger. That's why I wouldn't ask anymore.

No joke, a few months ago I was about 30 red rubies off levelling up for a bonus on 32Red. A few years ago, no issue, they'd be topped up. Now it's a big fat NO. When you've been with a casino for the best part of 10 years that does tend to get on your wick somewhat.

UKGC has a lot to answer for IMO.

Players in the UK have already suffered enough from having deposit bonuses and other perks cut. If anything, since the UKGC meddling, the average slots player is worse off. No bonuses, limited perks and reduced RTP!
