geez they sure are, trouble is none forum users or novices will fall hook, line and sinker for those sort of tricks :(

Bit surprising too tho as I appreciate they are pretty rare but last time Unibet (their sister site) sent me a deposit match it was a humble 10xB!!! (and they have the Rhino, would have been rude not to max that offer)

Having logged into my account and looked at the T's and C's there regarding this particular bonus offer, it states:

Once you have opted in to this offer, you will receive a 100% Deposit Bonus on your next deposit of €/£10 or more.

Maximum Bonus amount given is €/£200.

Bonus funds from the first deposit can only be used on the Casino, Slot and Bingo products

After accepting the bonus offer you will have 7 days to make your deposit and complete the wagering requirements. After this time the offer expires.

The bonus needs to be wagered 10 times before you can make a withdrawal.

Only one bonus will be given per customer.

We reserve the right to withdraw or change all offers at any time.

General site terms and conditions apply.

GAME STAKE CONTRIBUTIONS

All Slot games* have a contribution weight of 100% towards the wagering requirements.

Casino table games and video poker games, including Roulette, French Roulette, Blackjack, Roulette Pro, Jack or Better, Deuces Wild, Joker Wild, All American, Classic Jacks or Better and Deuces Wild, have a contribution weight of 10% towards wagering requirements.

Bingo side games/ bingo slots have a contribution weight of 100% towards the wagering requirements, whilst table games found within the bingo client have a contribution weight of 10%.

*Bets placed on the following Slots will not contribute towards the wagering requirements: Blood Suckers, Dead or Alive, Devils Delight, Jack Hammer, Jack Hammer 2, Thunderstruck, Thunderstruck 2

BONUS ABUSE

If a player has an active bonus and wins more than twice the value of the bonus amount, they must stay playing in a game of similar or equal weighting until wagering has been completed. Moving from low weighted games like Blackjack, to high weighted games like slots, after a large win, for the sole purpose of completing wagering requirements, will result in the bonus and any winnings being removed.

All withdrawals will be subject to an internal audit before being processed. We reserve all rights to void Bonuses or any winnings for failed audits. Player hereby consents in advance to same.

Among various abusive strategies and patterns we feel it is imperative to emphasize that customers cannot bet more than 30% of the bonus amount in a single bet or game round on any of our games for the duration of the bonus, otherwise the bonus and all associated winnings may be voided.

Any player found to be abusing bonus funds on slot games with a progression mechanic (e.g. Super Monopoly Money, Castle Builder, Tower Quest) are liable to have any winnings confiscated and may have their account closed.

So which one is it? 100x or 10x - makes a massive difference :eek:

Have made the rep aware of this topic so that they can comment on it.

Not the first time that this casino has been rather sloppy with their marketing. I recall making a topic a few months ago where the email stated a lower wager requirement than what was actually required.

10x seems a lot more likely from this particular group as their offers are usually pretty fair, I would hazard a guess the 100 is a typo or bad proof reading,

IIRC a few months ago something very similar was posted on here regarding this T&C, not sure if it was the same casino(s) but sure does ring a bell.

Would be VERY surprised if it was to be the 100 x!

So basically 10x wagering is ridiculously good and 100x is near impossible, given the restrictive wagering on certain slots as well (what the hell in Thunderstruck doing there?!?).

I know which offer I prefer :cool:

I was wondering that!! Why Thunderstruck and none of it's clones or near clones like Ladies' Night or Immortal Romance.

They also have a vague "bonus abuse" clause, but since there is no such thing as "bonus abuse", just "bad casino maths" from marketing, they surely can't be accredited, can they:confused:

If it's really only 10xB, it can be "abused" on Starburst if they have it, no need to take a risk on Thunderstruck surely:)

They have a huge catalog of games from numerous providers so plenty of ways to abuse than sit thru hours of Starburst torture. :p

Just had a flick thru some old emails and found the Unibet one.

Was 100% up to £50 with 10x WR - Like the good old days when free money actually meant free money!

Hi there,

Apologies for the confusion about this offer. I can confirm that the actual WR for the bonus mentioned in this thread is 10x and NOT 100x.

I am sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused.

Regards,
Stephan

Any chance you can send the same offer my way to my Unibet account please.

Not had any offers today from anywhere so your more than welcome to today's £25 gaming allowance :p

Plus all I seem to get from Unibet is sports offers and I'm a 'slotter'


Pretty Please ? ? :p

Employ a lot of numpties, do you?

WHO checks these things before they're released?

10x is a good bonus WR, more like you'd expect from Unibet etc.

Another day another f$ucked up promo, Credit for the 10x wager :)

People have mentioned why thunderstruck is on the list and none of there clones, I mentioned this before that on other sites They have ladies night bonus banned but not the clones? There can be only one possible reason for this and I will let you guess why,

All theses sites now sneaking in populer games for no apparent reason but not there clones, Than other sites are sneaking in one of the other clones, Very diffuclt to keep track now days

You will be constant thinking was it this site thats banned TS1 or LN ? Go to another site and they have blody spring break on the list,

What is the reason for adding this sort of game from using with bonus? and why only one of the clones? Please any rep can explain this

Thought I'd be right again but no sign of a 'Thanks Jon'

All they had to do was send me the offer instead of totally ignoring my tongue in cheek post, the Rhino would have gobbled it up sharpish anyway!

My talents are truly wasted!

I have £25 and 2 hours here and no casino wants it, no offers all week and luck too shit atm to play a cash only deposit!

Got a 100% bonus up to €60 with 30x wagering here. Seems to be one of those segmented bonuses.

I got my hopes up seeing that 10xB wagering requirement, but oh well.

Cheers for the heads up mate but already clocked it lol.

Did originally think 'That's tonight sorted' until I carried on reading :(

Daftest offer they've sent since I've been with them, sure lock the new game 'freebies' but not deposit based stuff, that is NOT good business practice IMO.

Did message Yits but not sure he's been on tonight :)
