    I thought it might be intereting to see how many players would like to see a min. of 10.00 instead of 21.00 or 25.00 added with some of the options that are out there, I know that 3 Dice and InetBet have these in place with one of the options for US players.

    I sent out an email to a great US friendly casino today and to a manager I much trust to see what her thoughts were on this.

    To me , being on a budget allows one to take 20.00 and play at 2 casinos when your trying to make your gaming entertainment last.
    The processing charges are prolly very high on the casinos end I presume but if there are multi deposits from multi players then it should bring in more business , volume wise.

    What are your thoughts on this as players and casinos reps !

    For me, doesn't matter - I can't see me wanting to pop in just 10
    I go in $100 deps to last a bit, and even then, 100 can last 15 min or less

    I too used to do that and found that most of the time I did better on smaller deposits , once cashed out 2500.00 from a 10.00 deposit and posted about it on CM some years back, those were great times !!!

    I popped 10 bucks into an RTG casino once because I had 10 minutes to kill while I waited to go out and won a 4k random jackpot on a 25c spin.

    Not my pref

    While I understand that amazing wins can happen on a small amount, that's not for me. If I can't afford $20, I have too little to play with and shouldn't do it. Personally, I think $50 is my smallest every deposit; generally it's 100.

    One thing hasn't been mentioned here - bonus. That may influence low-rollers to make a smaller deposit to double-up to say 20 0r 30 with a 100% bonus on a 10 or 15 deposit. So yes, on some occasions a smaller minimum deposit rule would be good. For us, but possibly not for the casino. We must also consider the casino's costs. They would be less likely to absorb them with multitudes of small deposits which all have a minimum processor fee, whereas this fee thins out the bigger the deposit is...........

    3 Dice does this and has multitudes of loyal players who partake of the loyalty bonuses offered , not sure about InetBet , so can't comment on them.

    I like smaller deposit options. I use to not play much at Jackpot Capital due to their $45.00 minimum on CC deposits. But, now they have paste&pay for as little as $5!!

    I have made a variety of different deposits at 3 Dice and always seem to do better on the smaller ones.......... got me on why.

    How does one play with $20 deposit?

    I am quite serious about this Do you play one line at one credit? Do you take a shot and go for broke after all 20 bucks doesn't last long whatever you play
    I just deposited $50 and got only about 400 spins playing 40cents /spin on goildbeard in less than 30 minutes

    Then i satisfied my boredom and now I am bored again
    I have a large withdrawal pending , but I will be damned if I make a reversal So I will have to wait till I am paid and the delight wont be in the payment but in denying the casino
    the laugh they get when one reverses
    Further more they wont get any action from me since Sat night and none till cash the check and wait 2 days as they do.

    So , since I only play at 2 casinos and its the samke pay schedule, I am off to the B&M casino till the weekend.

    It 's gambling no matter what the size of the deposit or bet , for me , having 10.00 bucks in a casino gives me entertainment , it could last 50 .20 cent bets and build it up to a nice bankroll or lose , however , I am only out 10.00.

    When I play at a BM casinos the same logic applies , start out small and build up that bankroll if lady luck is on my side, I cashout and move on to another slot.

    It is just what Skinny said , it can be done on 10.00 just as easily as 20.00 or even 50.00.

    When I was making great money , I would not bat an eye at betting 20.00 or even 100.00 a spin and trust me , I lost a small fortune, maybe its just me but I enjoy smaller min. deposit limits and hope some of the other casinos will follow suit with 3 Dice and InetBet.

    I have been in business too long to know that you make more money per volume , gaming or other.

    I would never deposit a tiny amount (£5-£10) if I was planning a major session on slots - MAYBE just if I fancied a quick burst of 0.20-0.30 spins to kill a few minutes or I was hoping of a miracle boost on a cash strapped week (Not that chucking your last fiver at a slot that's almost guaranteed to grab it and run is going to help .. lol) BUT I do sometimes play very low stakes blackjack and video poker primarily for entertainment - Sky Vegas and Stan James both allow bets as low as 0.10 and I'd rather play cards than watch the junk on TV these days, and the chance to win a few pounds by the end of the evening is pretty much just a bonus - nevertheless, at least one such session each week I do manage to turn my fiver into £25-£30 playing £0.20 up to £1.00 or so for blackjack and £0.10-£0.50 video poker.

    I have to say most casinos seem to me to already have their minimum deposit set in-line with the minimum stakes on their games - for example I would love to see Microgaming allow low stakes on a couple of their games because I definitely prefer their versions of blackjack/video poker and thats always my choice whenever I'm looking to make a bigger deposit - I don't see the point in MG casinos lowering their minimum deposits as things stand.

    With all the fees involved, I don't think I would deposit that little, personally. It would be a nice gesture, though. I used to do that with UseMyWallet, but there were no extra fees.

    Standard 20 or 25 dollar deposits. The JC casinos allow 10 dollar deposits though but if you take bonuses 20 is the minimum. If you want playtime accumulate $25 and deposit at Slotocash for a daily 300% bonus. That gives you a bankroll of $100.

    Yeah but then you have to finish $3500 in wagering requirements at Sloto which is an RTG casino. That's a good deal for players that are purely looking for playtime but not for a cash-out.

    I like the idea of lower minimum deposits. I've withdrawn a couple of times at 32 Red off a $10 deposit. Once for $1000 and the other for $400. Personally I normally deposit $50 at many casinos but I think it would be nice to give players that option :)
