Well, I'm halfway through a rival casino bonus where I have to have double the bonus to end before I can withdraw.
Had a few decent wins and got the balance up to £850 from starting £505 bonus plus deposit.
Just playing out the wagering requirements now on cosmic quest mystery planets which is 98 rtp however I need to get to £1000 at the end to be able to withdraw.
Where's that at hinchy?
I'm over £20K through at Tropica now, still £60K to go though, balance holding up at just under £2K.
Was holding at £2300-£2400 for a while but Scary Rich 2 just went mental and sucked down nearly £700 at £1 per spin without hitting 100x or better once.
Jacques Pot Gourmet Slot has given me a reasonable rally at £2 per spin. The burger round bonus when you can trigger it, is generally a safe 100x stake or better.
£2 per spin here.

Its at go fish casino, funnily enough I've just be on Jacques pot Gourmet myself, took a bit of a hit though, recovered it on Baby Boomers cash cruise, I do like that slot. 177% match 14x D+B playthrough. There is also a Free £377 chip which you have 60 mins to play, then any winnings above the £377 are taken through to the second stage, pretty good fun for little outlay, suffice to say I didnt meet the WR on the second stage,
Chops....I can think of much better ways to spend $110 and countless hours.
It's really not a good bonus. If the max cashout was even 1xbonus I might consider it briefly, but if I'm going to spend that much time I want the possibility of a large reward.
My way of looking at is the bonus 'buys' me a couple of evening's slotting at least, probably more like three or four evenings.
It's almost like playing with free money, except with the possibility of cashing out at the end it. Plus I take them on momre as a sort of challenge than any kind of hard-headed attempt to make money.
It's not like I have to sit there and interact with the slots for hours on end either, with the new 'Share The Excitement' feature I can just kick them off and go and do something else, safe in the knowledge that it'll stop if a 100x stake win or better comes in.
Last night I was playing Borderlands 2 whilst Gold Rush just played itself over on the media centre PC
So what's borderlands like?
I'm a diehard command and conquer/settlers/age of empires fan. Would it appeal to me do you think?
Hmmmm may check the place out myself, the Rival client is so small on my screen that I could easily have two of them on the go at the right hand side of my screen.
Incidentally, if you want a good wagering slot with a high RTP, just whack Gold Rush on, that's a low variance single line slot with an 'about 98' payout. (The jackpot is 135x stake IIRC, which is very small for any slot, let alone a single-liner. You will actually see it come in if you put any substantial number of spins through it.)
It wagered about £8K for me last night over on the media centre PC whilst I was playing Borderlands 2, and my balance went up £200
Not to derail, but have you tried Dota2 Chops? I've got a spare invite if you're so inclined.
Since getting into the beta last November, I've spent countless (over 1500) hours on it.
I don't know how Tropica does, but also remember that the games we play the most, like the I-slots and the high variance-games as Scary Rich 1 and 2, are often on max bets of $1 or $2.
To have a big bankroll and not being able to make high bets will be boring, and reduce your chances of high winnings.
I would never ever take that kind of bonus.
If I like to try as many games as possible, I would take a resonable bonus, with no max cashout, and then play them on low bets instead.
You could still win a lot, and then maybe later raze your betsize.
Good luck whatever you do
Well if you hadn't kept posting all over the forum about how great that 99% slot was for beating WR - maybe they wouldn't have noticed and would have left it alone!WHY COULDN'T YOU HAVE JUST LEFT THE BLOODY THING ALONE RIVAL?

(Someone had to say it )
FWIW I think it's unlikely they have actually changed the slot (just updated the "rules" page which we know are notorious for being inaccurate), it's more likely just the variance kicking in and giving you a really bad run
Who knows? (Only Rival - and they're not about to make a public statement about anything!)
I don't see any max bet requirements in the bonus terms, but 0.5 times the bonus as the max amount permitted to cashout in the (unlikely) event that you meet the WR is a no go for me. If it were 5x the bonus, I would consider it...
Bust out at just over £39,000 wagered.
Would have done a lot better I think if not for the abomination that The Back Nine has become, but either way it was always a very big ask.
Scary Rich demolished the £1500 balance you see in the last screenshot at £1 per spin and only hit the 100x stop trigger a couple of times - scary indeed!
Well there you go ...she IS a Scary Bitch
Damn I miss beating my old Rival casinos up. !
It was the instruction from chops to move to Gold rush which was the decisive move here, I was hovering around 600-700 for ages then moved to gold rush and had a few good wins to bring me above the needed amount, which then proceeded to just tick away to meet the WR.
