Just received this from Ikibu...

90xB WR What are these promotions people on??

I know the bonus rules for UK players have changed, and some members are saying that it's just the casinos covering themselves because of those changes.

But what about the likes of LeoVegas, Betat, SlottyVegas, MrGreen, to name but a few
They have always had this 'new' bonus structure?
They've survived for years with a reasonable 30xB - 40xB WR, and no max win clauses, and AFAIK haven't made any increases or changes, since the new rules

im very surprised to see such a bonus coming from Ikibu.

Their welcome bonus for UK players was much better, with wagering of just 30x (d+b) and maximum cashout of... wait for it... 3x deposit.

seriously, just vote with your wallet and dont play there :p I avoid places with similar wagering req because if we keep on depositing despite their ridiculous bonus terms it could make them think they are doing something good.

And as long as there is no shortage of casinos to play at, with better bonus terms, i will play elsewhere.

Yeah what happened to those days, how'd we end up here?

Used to be straight-up deposit matches up to say 50, NO restricted games, no cashout limits.

Can't tell me there weren't advantage players back then, or that casinos couldn't spot them. Or despite those still edge a profit.....

What I'm seeing now is shameless greed by the casinos, nothing more. ******s.

Ahh...Ikibu - the casino I love to hate :D

Who have all these strange bonus rules, and where I can't understand why anyone would play.

Come on guys - I thought you would have got used to it by now !!!

No bonus - no hassle! Simples !

True, and I play like that.

That doesn't mean I accept or think it's fine that some casinos have rules and traps just to prevent people from winning.
Some still like their bonus play so that mean we have to look out for them, and try to help if we can.

Yeah there are a few about still....just!

LV, 35xB and it tells you when a game is cash only play, downside being WR doesn't start until until bonus funds (same with BetAt??)

Caddell, 35xB, can play most if not all games (SUB is 35xD+B!! but still doable)

Guts reloads used to be ok, don't play there since change in management thought so unsure if changed

32 Red, ok MG only but still after all these years just 30xB, no games restricted or max bet (Excl. SUB.)

well, I take regular bonuses because some casinos DO offer hassle-free Ts and Cs

I wouldn’t call them “hassle-free” Ts and Cs but only more fair.

My point is - Are you keeping a record of how many times you have managed to meet the wagering reqs and make a successful withdrawal ?

Because I do and it’s not a good record ...

Still pretty straightforward..play whatever
slots 100% contribution
other areas, different contributions
3 restricted games

ikibu seems to be pretty competitive when it comes to terms though. Not quite as good as Guts or 32red but usually they only have 30x (d+b), max cashout and a tiny list of restricted games to spice things up.

  • The following games are restricted until wager requirements have been met :

  • Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Lucky Angler, Aliens, Eye of Kraken, Holly Jolly Penguins, Big Bang, The Wish Master, Devil’s Delight, Robin Hood, Tomb Raider 2, Tornado: Farm Escape, 1429 Uncharted Seas, Jackpot Jester 6000, Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge, Super Monopoly Money, Thunderstruck I, Kings of Chicago, Tower Quest, Vikings Go Berzerk, Joker Millions, Holmes and the Stolen Stones, Seasons, Alchymedes, Double Dragons, Seasons, Legend of the White Snake Lady, Nirvana, Castle Builder II, Immortal Romance, 300 Shields (NYX Gaming), Jurassic Park, Football star, Big Bad Wolf (Microgaming), Dragon Born, Vikings go Wild, Gold, White Rabbit, Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild, Ozwin’s Jackpots, Break da Bank, Break Da Bank Again and Dwarfs Gone Wild.

  • The following games only contribute 50% towards the wager requirements:

  • Piggy Riches, Zombies, Jack Hammer 2, Steam Tower, Muse: Wild inspiration, Victorious, Ghost Pirates, High Society, Flowers, Flowers Christmas Edition, Twin Spin, Twin Spin Deluxe, Bloodsuckers, Bloodsuckers II and Spiña Colada, Dead or Alive, Dead or Alive Touch, Reel Rush, Bonanza, Danger! High Voltage, Queen of Riches, Star Quest, Energoonz, Extra Chilli & Reactoonz.
it looks like they simply added most, if not all of the most played/famous slots to the list :D

EDIT:
wagering is not 30x (d+b) anymore. Its 50x now :oops: glad to see they are improving

Unless otherwise informed in the applicable conditions, all match/reload bonuses have a wagering requirement of 50 times the total amount (deposit + bonus)

Imagine wagering for ages on what is not only a restricted game, but no longer exists! As with Aliens :eek:

Oh everyone still has Aliens, and since casinos apparently copy each other lists Aliens are there to stay. Forever. Im actually surprised to see there is no The Dark Knight Rises, which is still on like 90% of the lists too :p
