    So no judgements for anyones opinions on this thread I will even put my own opinions on it. But what are everythings feelngs on Casino Deposit Bonuses?

    I think they are a huge rip off here is why and its basic mathematics...Not to single anyone out but I will use Casinomax as an example even though I play there occasionally. But just about all casinos have ridiculous playthrough amounts and I don't think that the playthrough amounts should include the initial deposit, I think they should only count the amount of money THEY contributed to the bonus not the money the player is depositing....

    Say you deposit $75.00 and you use one of their deposit coupon bonuses just about all of their coupons are 40X and lets say its a 50% deposit bonus which most of them are (read terms and conditions of all coupons CAREFULLY and if a coupon does not have any terms and conditions link DONT USE IT. So now you have $110.50 to play with may look nice BUT your playthrough is your deposit PLUS the bonus they gave so its $110.50 x40 that means you have to play through $4,420.00. The majority of players are not going to hit that and 5 times out of ten once you use that coupon you are going to hit something just not enough to hit playthrough which means all that money stays in the casino.

    Now if you only play with that $75.00 and you hit anything you can cash out at any time provided you win enough to cover the costs of the deposit you made, plus the fees associated with withdrawal whether it be courier or wire transfer......

    To me its pretty simple. Use my own money ignore the ridiculous coupons and win or lose...

    Probably but mostly in the World threads. And I also didn't want to search through hundreds of world threads hence why I created a poll for us US Players:p

    i have used it before. Until i played at a Nektan casino. I deposited 500 and got 500sek bonus. i did not won until i eas down to 200 i think. anyway after i cleard the wagger i had 11k in balance and sudenley i saw my balance dropped down to 2k and did not know what the fuck happend until i chat with the support and she told me it is max 4x deposit cashout when playing with bonus... After that i never touch a bonus and actully i feel oersonaly that it just stupid. Why tie my own money and wagger 35 times when many time in behinng i often dubbel
    my deposit and the loose it. No the ”bonus” is only there for the casino to screw u :)

    It is very simple: Always play with a bonus
    1) if it is a cashable bonus;
    2) if there is no max cashout.

    Even if you do not clear the WR, bonus money = cash.
    Assuming you are not a once-in-a-lifetime player, i.e. you are a regular player.

    Explanation:
    You deposit 100 USD. You bust out. You deposit another 100 USD. You bust out. Result: -200 USD in your wallet.

    You deposit 100 USD and get 100 USD as a deposit bonus. Your bankroll of 200 USD gets depleted. Result: -100 USD in your wallet.

    Posh has the absolute best bonuses I've seen. Daily 375% match with 50 dollar minimum deposit, no wag reqs of max cashout. They simply take the bonus out of a cashout tho. Really love starting with a higher bankroll each deposit.

    Just me, but if I'm on a losing streak I don't redeposit. I come back another day. But that's just me, I know some people keep redepositing hoping to hit the big one or at least make their money back.
