Hi Guys

Check out this little gem I received today:

Get a 177% bonus on your next deposit!
Minimum deposit: $25 Maximum bonus amount: $177.
16x (deposit+bonus) playthrough
Playthrough is the amount that must be wagered (put at risk) before you may cashout. It is a multiple of your deposit or a multiple of your deposit plus the bonus. For example, "20x deposit" on a deposit of $100 means playthrough is $2000. "20x deposit + bonus wagering" on a deposit of $100 with a bonus of $100 means playthrough is $4000.


Unless otherwise stated, 1 credit wagered in a game counts as 1 credit toward playthrough requirements. Play at the following games, and any variants, does not count towards playthrough requirements and winnings may be considered null and void: Roulette, Blackjack, Sicbo, RedDog, Baccarat, PaiGow, War, ThreeCard, LetItRide, Videopoker, Craps, DoubleUp, CaribStud, Slot Progressive.
A maximum cashout of 3 times the bonus applies.
A maximum cashout applies. For example, if you receive a $10 bonus and the maximum cashout is 10x the bonus your maximum cashout is $100. Any balance remaining after your cashout will be removed from your account.


Any funds over the maximum cashable amount will be removed automatically on cashout.
The following games and any variants may have different table limits while this promotion is active: Roulette, Blackjack, Sicbo, RedDog, Baccarat, PaiGow, War, ThreeCard, LetItRide, Videopoker, Craps, DoubleUp, CaribStud, Slot Progressive
Your table limits may change while this promotion is active.


Valid from 2009-06-19 00:00:00 to 2009-06-21 23:59:59. Promotion may be expired by casino at any time.
The casino's general terms and conditions apply.
I can hardly take my credit card out quick enough!! :rolleyes:

I wonder how many people deposit using these sort of bonuses without reading the t&cs, then after they have won big find out they can only withdraw 3 time the deposit & bonus, :rolleyes:

Well I'm sorry, but I don't see what the problem is. :confused:

Deposit $100, get $177 bonus on top.
Max cash-out = $531.

I would be absolutely delighted to cash out more than 5 times my deposit! :thumbsup:
(That doesn't happen very often at all).

Hi KK :)

Well, yes its nice to cash out 5x your deposit, but my issue is that based on a $100 deposit you have to wager $4432 which is not easy at all. (Imagine if you hit $2k on Scary or something....you would surely be p*ssed)

I would also say that many people who take bonuses deposit small amounts ($25) which would limit their cashout to $132.75 after wagering $1108.

The main point is that, comparable to other casinos, the terms are IMO crappy. Its true that WR is higher at other places, but at least I can cashout whatever I want.

I dont have a problem with max cashouts on FREE chips, but I personally find them unacceptable if a player is depositing their own money.

This casino also offers a 100% bonus with a 4x max cashout, which I believe is even worse.

Everyone has their own boundaries when it comes to what is acceptable when taking a bonus, and for me I draw the line at limiting what I win when I deposit.

I have to agree 100% with Nifty on this one...these bonuses IMHO are terrible. I think we talked about this a while back. Actually I think I started a thread on Vegas Sky when I received the first one that had some ridiculous playthrough and an even worse max cashout. Superior was doing this too but lately I've noticed they gotten away from the max cashout idea. Of course, I've never cashed out there but I still try! In the unlikely event that I ever do make the WR I would hope that if I deposited a small amount like $25 and received a 200% bonus that I would be able to cashout more than $75 (3 X bonus or Bonus + deposit) whatever it is. I just think that if you work that hard and do get lucky you should be rewarded:D

Spot on!

When I checked my emails, I wrote back to them immediately thinking it was just the email that had the wrong dates and not the actual promo itself. I was wrong! When I returned home, I logged into the casino and tried to claim the promo. The promo was in the cashier but had a validity date 19-21 June. Obviously, they used the promo last week and simply reinstated it in the cashier. No one can claim it even if he wants to:D:D

Well thats even worse.

Why is it that Slotocash is the only Rival able to organise itself??
