Not sure why they didn't just bonus ban me instead of ofer me this garbage. I did clarify with live chat and they said I could also cash out my deposit, how generous. Otherwise this would have been a loser's only bonus.

If I am not mistaken the cashier will initially refuse your cashout of deposit+bonus as it is clearly written down that the max cashout is 1x bonus. You will have to jump thru a number of hoops to get your money and that is only up to 20% of your deposit. Phooey!

When I saw the thread title I thought it could not possibly be worse than my 443.74x wagering at Planet23, but with this one I admit that you beat me to it, congrats!!:notworthy:notworthy

Is there a 'Worst Bonus of the Decade' award available?
This one is nominated!!:thumbsup:

Well, even if they really mean 1x bonus + deposit, it STILL SUCKS. You can deposit up to $200, and this gives you $40. The BEST you can do then is win 1x the bonus during play, yet you are risking a disproportionate amount of your own money to do so. They ALSO expect players to be playing SLOTS, so this really is a no win situation for the player because of the variance. many who win will exceed by far the max cashout, but most who take up the offer will fail to meet the onerous WR and bust out.

This really IS, like another poster commented recently, a "deposit penalty" rather than a bonus.

DON'T TAKE IT!!!!

Whenever I get these bonus offers, I rarely have to read past the first line.

"Get a 20% bonus on your next deposit"

I cannot figure out why on earth people take these bonuses, forget all the other terms in this offer, the 20% should set alarm bells ringing straight away.

I think this bonus is a mistake. I dont think ANY casino can provide this on purpose.

I mean, even the stupid bonus with the time limit of 60 minutes was better.

This bonus is NOT a mistake as I verified it with live chat.

On a 200 deposit, I would get a 40 bonus with WR of $4,800, max cash out of 240 (if I believe live chat) but most likely max cash out of 40 and then problems with getting the deposit refunded. So best case scenario is I could make 40. This really is the worst offer I have ever seen.

Regarding the question mark, it offers additional clarification if you click on it. Here's a revised screenshot:

WTF

I am not an expert on bonus terms by any means, and even I know that is some ridiculous bullshit :eek2:. The more I read on the forums the crazier this stuff seems to get.
It also has me thinking....
all4 is a US player, is it because we have so many issues playing online in the US that a lot of casinos think they can jerk us around 20 different ways and we will just suck it up and pay and play?
Or is this the case for players from anywhere and just a lot of bad business out there?

At Box24 we do not put max cashout on bonuses as we don't agree we should limit a players wins, so this was definately done in error, it was meant to be min cashout x1 oops apologies folks won't happen again!! Thanks.
