Interested on other players thoughts on this.

I'm a big fan of taking up the opportunity of any welcome bonus at a new casino. Who wouldn't right? Double or Triple your initial deposit. Take a big risk with big bets to win big or play strategy low risk betting for a good session and maybe run good :).

After all in the later I refer to good session!

Why is it these days it almost feels that getting yourself tied down to a bunus immediately puts you on the back end of a con! I use the word con lightly but it sure feels that way.

This year alone I've signed up to loads of casinos took a bonus and keept to a 300-500 spin rule in my balance to no evail. The sessions seem to last 20-40 mins max, very little features if any rare 20x hits and a feature paying no more than 10x if you do hit. RTP always starts of below 45% for 1st 200 spins with hardly a feature accross the board and either drops dramatically till you bust or picks up a little before a huge downswing then busting!

Now I'm either running extremely bad or this is just an emerging pattern for everyone.

I'd like to hear your thoughts. Cheers

I have as good as given up on any bonus. I used to but the number of times I have started off well and as I get near to clearing wagering, all goes downhill, last one left me with 7p :D In my opinion they are not worth the bother.

Your just having a bad run. I have signed up for a few casinos in the last year and all but one I am down with no significant play one even boats an RTP of 37% over 2 sessions. This is just bad luck, no patterns. I do think though for the most part the newer games aren't that good and if you shy away from them you might have better luck. Just an idea. No patterns though:D

Totally agree on that.
On newer games, I think you have to bet high for a few spins and hope for a quick hit and run

Yep - it's all down to luck. Had one recently whereby i only had 500 wagering requirements but only managed 100! I remember taking a bonus with Bet Victor with 4k wagering but then suddenly starting creeping up to 500 wagered, 1500, 2500. Wild rockets i think and then just couldn't stop winning:) And that was as i was getting closer to the 4k requirement

Swings and roundabouts - if you hit it at the right time, happy days.
