    Just a observation, makes me think it may be a issue for some players...

    Every time you make a deposit at a Fortune Lounge casino (7 Sultans, Royal Vegas etc) you are asked part-way through if you want to deposit more money to increase your starting balance. See below:

    Also, if you sign up to bonuses by e-mail they increase bonus amount by around 25% each time to get you to deposit more.

    Responsible or am I looking into it too much?

    Yes, they've always done this at FL, just be grateful you weren't on live chat at the time...
    Called 'selling' I think, and to be honest the amounts they were offering are paltry anyway.
    I do find it intrusive though, trying to eke out more money from a player who has probably set a budget beforehand.

    It is quite common, some Netent casinos show a bonus bar when you deposit and inform
    that you are not depositing enough for the max bonus, with a deposit more option, of course.
    Never found it tempting, but yes, some players might deposit more than they initially planned.

    Yeah, this always struck me as some questionable behavior as well, but personally I don't mind an extra bonus offer since I can always just say no. It might be a different story for those with gambling issues though.

    If you'd like, you can just set your deposit amount to 50-60% of your intended amount, see if the "deposit more for a bonus" offers pop up, then go back and just deposit your intended amount if they don't.

    Another thing to be wary of with some of these small bonuses is that there's a term which limits you to betting 30% of your bonus amount. This shouldn't be a problem for say, a 50% deposit bonus, but with some of these offers it will limit you to a very small bet. For example, if you deposit 600 and receive a 30 bonus, you can't bet more than 9 credits (1.5% of your deposit). Any bonus of 10% or less I'd just rather not deal with.
