The "Not So Free" Free Spins...

Several months ago, many casinos started adding "free spins" into their promos.

Back then, the free spins had no strings attached other than the "wager the deposit and bonus X amount of times." "Any money won from the free spins will be added to your account"

Only the deposit and bonus had to have wagering done. (Not the winnings from the free spins)

So, I get this offer yesterday:

40 Free Spins code: XXXXXXXXX
Player has to claim all these coupons (XXXXXXXXX, XXXXXXXXX, XXXXXXXX and XXXXXXXXX) within event hours before they can redeem the 40 Free Spins
The 40 free spins can only be used on Henhouse
The free spins will be to the value of $10, totalling to 40 x $0.25 spins. Each free spin is played on Maximum pay lines at $0.01 per line
Play through will start once your free spins have been completed
The free spin winnings must be wagered (25) times before a cashout is permitted
The max cash out from these free spins is $100
This coupon can be redeemed once

So, in essence, you must deposit using each of the codes, that's 4 deposits with 25x D & B wagering on each.

Only then do you redeem the free spins code, a value of $10.00. Yet the yield of the free spins must be wagered 25x and THEN, Maximum withdrawal on said free spins is $100.00.

Seriously? Who, in their right mind, would take the offer?

The casino in question is likely to be Club World or Lucky Red most probably the former. Seems ludicrous but if you are a bonus taker anyway it gives you an extra chance even if you had lost your previous 4 deposits. Not that I would likely take up the offers though.

I received this offer.

It was not received by me until quite late in the day on Tuesday. At the point I read it, I had about an hour left to make the first deposit. So even if I was so inclined, it could have easily been missed.

I have taken quite of a few of the free spin bonuses in the past, but I'll pass on this one.

It's pretty rare for me to take any bonus that requires me to deposit multiple times, especially daily.

Yes I do not like the way this type of bonus is set up. Deposit 4 times then get $10 worth of spins with that max cashout.

It seems they are trying to get you to keep depositing, but really who in there right mind wants $10 worth of spins after 4 deposits? Also what if I deposit $100 x 4, you really think $10 worth of spins is attractive.

They do these types of bonuses all the time. They need to put a little thought into it to cater to all types of depositors (size of deposits)

This type of bonus seems to be a new format, and it would be great for them to see this feedback to fix it.

Right here
Yes, I rarely take a deposit bonus. They are just not worth the hassle.

The one I posted above is beyond ridiculous in my opinion. Especially coming from a decent casino.

Completely agree. It's almost like someone hired a Mormon statistician to come up with some of these nonsense bonuses, lol.
