    Hi All

    I often do not take a bonus when offered as I cannot be bothered with the hassle.

    Video slots just emailed me

    'Get 100% up to £ 100 bonus on your next deposit!

    If you deposit £ 100 we will give you an extra £ 100 in bonus. To activate the bonus, simply enter the bonus code in the bonus field when you make your next deposit. The bonus code is valid until Sunday, GMT 23:59, so make sure you log in and use it now!

    With only 20x wager requirement!

    Please read our terms and conditions before you activate your bonus.

    Your bonus money will be paid out in 10% increments.

    Good Luck!

    Mike'

    I have read through it, and have to say 20x seems like a decent bonus to try.

    However, the way they pay the bonus is weird, from their T and C page I believe it is incremental? Does anybody have experience with this? Would you say it is worth a shot? Can you withdraw any time?

    Confused..

    VS has different kind of bonuses but yours seems to be this one:

    - you opt-in for the 100% match
    - make your deposit, e.g. 100$ which would mean 100 chips extra
    - the bonus chips will not be added to your balance
    - you wager 200, 10 get's added to your balance which is then straight cash.
    - if you bust out while still wagering you can make further deposits until you got the full 100
    - you cannot withdraw while the bonus is active
    - you can forfeit any time but will lose bonus money and winnings. (happened to me)
    - if you want to forfeit, do it when your balance is "0"

    Hope this helps.

    This bonus structure is the ONLY reason video slots do not see more of my budget as a daily depositor at one casino or another.

    Low rollers like me love their 100% bonuses but need them in balance in full at the start to make the session more enjoyable and not been stuck on minimum bets from the 'off'

    I know some players prefer it this way but the fact that the majority of their competitors add the full bonus up front suggest to me which system the bulk of players prefers ;)

    What Harry said,

    Im with Jon on this one, I like bonus up front, I have took the bonus structure before and did not make it to my second lot of 10% So I basic only had 10% bonus added,

    It has been discussed many of times and VS are not going to change this, Didn't Barbra say the other day that why a bonus is active you cannot earn cash back or race? It just makes it even worse,

    I love Videoslots but the bonuses are crap and not worth taking. Maybe if you could still place in the race and get cashback then maybe just maybe it's worth a shot. My advice to anybody playing Videoslots is to never take a deposit match bonus. They are useless in my opinion.

    Yes. I would never take a bonus there ever again. I got up to 88% of my WR and busted out (first time like Terry busted out at 10%). I don't know why they tease you with those 10% increments. It gives you the misguided feeling that the money is yours.

    Edit: The other thing I forgot to mention was that slots do not contribute 100% to your WR. It is based on the RTP on each particular slot.

    I don't take any wagering req bonus linked to a deposit where your deposit forms part of the bonus and is then locked. I know it can be done and it does extend play but the majority of deposits become impossible when attached to them, in my experience. I saw one today on 21couk of half your money back but when paid is 50x so I just skipped it. I played off about 35 quid so the chance of the pay back 17.50 turning over 875 quid just seems like a huge disappointment at best.

    But the thing that I have an empty question about is if the RTP is affected with these bonus funds. I simply don't know. I would like to think they contribute but something tells me they make no difference.

    Not sure what you mean. What I was meaning is that if a game has a 97% RTP that is what is allocated to your WR. In other words, if you are playing Immortal Romance and it has an RTP of say 96% then anything that you wager is only going to go towards that percentage. As one of the members has already stated, stay away from their bonuses. The bonuses seem lucrative but trust me they are not worth it.

    Yes, that rule was kind of hidden in the fine-print: You must register/login in order to see the link.. Don't think any other casinos have those exact rules.
    They've selected the turrnover-req and the RTP-weight values so you won't get any real value of the bonus:

    I don't get this.

    Seeing as the bonus is post wager and added in 10% increments, your balance will be all cash at all times.

    It seems harsh you can not opt out of the bonus without losing winnings, as you've already met the WR on any bonus converted.

    Happened to me beginning of June when I got the first time a 100% match. Busted out on the first and on 2 further deposits but still had not wagered enough to get through the whole 100% bonus. Friday i got then my cashback and thought it is not worth trying to wager any further and decided to forfeit. Suddenly my balance dropped to "0". All was gone including what was my cash balance.

    Explanation was that any winnings made using the bonus cash will be removed when you decide to forfeit. I had actually lost 3 deposits trying to get through the 100% so in my view i was not winning. But they count any payout from the slot during your play.

    I complained and got then the full balance restored but still had to try to make it through the reminder of the wagering which i failed to do.

    So in reality i deposited nearly 3x the original 100% bonus match i received for my 1st deposit and still did not achieve the 100%. Forfeited then the last 40% of the 100% as i could not be bothered any further.

    Actually it is and I can't see any reason for why they still have it. Why do you still offer it Videoslotsguy's?:rolleyes:
    Find something else to get new customers. You can do it!

    This isn't a place for anyone who wants to use bonuses, but I can easily say it's one of the best casinos regarding everything else.
    Everything and a little more;)

    Thanks BalticSea. I did not read the T&C correctly. I was so frustrated at not meeting WR and dug through the T&C's and found out that it is not 100%. Must be the worse casino bonus going. Like Harry I found out too late. Had a massive win and couldn't cash out. Ughhhh. Felt like Homer Simpson for taking that bonus.

    I understand the dislike of incremental bonus but having said that despite the weighted term for above or below 96% 20x is still preferable to 30 x elsewhere.

    The way the bonus works with the increments and no prior withdrawal is certainly in terms of flexibility one of the worst bonuses around. However the WR of 20xb is on of the few bonuses around that gives the player a positive expected value. Same as Unibet by the way and they got positive responses.

    The only thing you can criticize is that you can't withdraw before the bonus is played through. I think you should be able to forfeit the (pending) bonus without losing your real cash.

    Exactly. It is indeed a bonus in which a profit of £20 from £100 is the average result. It actually does in reality have a player edge.

    96% slot £100 deposit. Average loss £4 per 1x play through. X 20 . £80 loss. It's a nice incentive to draw players back to the casino :)

    At a time when the industry standard wager requirement is anything from x30 b to x40 d+b do you seriously expect an x20 rollover bonus to not have drawbacks?

    However, I think videoslots should change the description and call it what it actually is, enhanced cashback instead of bonus.
