Ok every Wednesday I get this bonus in my email from slotastic, "Go MAD this Wednesday" and then it goes on to tell you about a 25% bonus, with standard terms of 30x rollover.

The first time I ever saw the heading I thought "wow lets check out this great bonus" then once I opened the email my thoughts changed to "what the ***K is wrong with you wackos? You hype this email up for the stupidest bonus in RTG history." I mean come on, do you think I am stupid? Do you really think I am going go claim an extra 25% so that I can then grab myself a great playthrough of 30x?

And its not even about the stupid bonus, its about the way they market it. I though I hit a jackpot without even knowing. Now I would say that most casinos would be embarrassed to even send an email out offering a 25%, so I have to assume that they send it out because they believe there are suckers that will actually claim this.

Is it just me or is this really stupid?

If it's Deposit + Bonus x30, then no it's not just you - it IS really stupid!
If it was the bonus only x30 and it's cashable it wouldn't be so bad - but even then I wouldn't touch a 25% bonus with those terms.

25 and 50 % bonuses should be done away with , it is not worth it imo , if it's 75 to 100 % with a reasonable P/T and no max cashout , I am there , the others get trashed:mad:

I see many times in casino lobby offers from 32Red just 10% :) Or 32Red don't have WR at all with 10% bonus. As I remember they have WR, so it's 25% is seem legit to me :)

Even 100% deposit bonus is stupid, which I am guilty of but not too often.
50% AND 25% DEPOSIT BONUS is moronic at 30times D+B not stupid.
I implore you my fellow forum members look at the maths

Specifically with Jacpot Capital group.

50% deposit bonus at 30 x
Lets say you deposit 50 bucks and you get 25 bonus Your WR is $2250



If you forego the bonus , playing your $50 you might get a decent hit for say $200 or $$300 and you can cash IMMEDIATELY

In the cas where you take the bonus and you were just as lucky to hit $300 buck in the first $50 of play , you will still have $1950 WR to go before you can cash out.
Even if you make the WR you might have 50$ left to play or cash out.

I am sure NIFTY can articulate this fact much better than I can

All I can say if no one accepts 25% and 50% bonuses they got to stop sending these intelligence insulting emails.

Although , admittedly, playing RTG slots is in itself an insult to ones intelligence and I do take the insult sometimes LOL

You are wrong on one count and that is the 30x rollover. Its a 30x rollover for both the deposit and bonus. I don't understand why the deposit can qualify for rollover purposes. I have no problems with a 30x rollover for a bonus no matter how small the bonus is. If you had deposited 100 you get a 25 bonus with a rollover of 3750. You need to wager 3750 for a cashable bonus of 25. Might as well play without a bonus. If one must play at slotastic take their 100% bonuses at the beginning of each month.

At least you can choose whether to take those bonuses. There was a Microgaming group I used to play that tacked on a 10% bonus automatically on every deposit. I said I didn't want those and was told then I could just opt out, but I'd have to opt out of ALL their bonuses, not just the stupid little ones.

I remember that happening as well , just can't remember the casino.

I don't play at Slotastic like I used to , I do wish they would offer better bonuses , 30 x can be made but on a 25% or 50% bonus well that's just insane and I would never encourage any player to partake of it, just do the math on a 20.00 deposit for example , just crazy!

I dunno, I just had a great run with them, although I will never take their 25% , it's not worth it. May as well just deposit without bonus.

I cashed out $1800 two weeks ago on my usual 50 dollar deposit with 100%.

I have also just had another great time play with a 50 dollar bet with another 100%, that lasted for almost a week.

Silly me, I didn't cash out but it gave me days on end without redepositing.

Thanks JC.:cool:
