There was a thread discussing christmas bonuses but think we need one for the truly amazing offers some casinos put out.

I just had an offer at GNUF for 100 free spins on a deposit of $20/€20 or more, or in my case SEK200 to get 100 free spins. Guess what? It was 5 lines at 0.01kr each, total value of SEK5, just under a whole dollar! If I had had my account in $ I would most likely have gotten 5 lines at 1 cent which would at least have been worth $5. Is there a special planet somewhere out there where the marketing people that come up with this live? And of course since it's Palace Group they have a 48 pending period so won't see my money until way past christmas, way to go to lose a customer.

That's exactly what I was trying to establish. Everything else out there seems a rip off compared to 32Red. Seems the Casinos feel its Christmas for them, where they fill their stockings up with presents (from players) as apposed to showing the public how they appreciate them and giving out DECENT bonuses....

I'm still waiting to see something better than 32Red and its almost Christmas.

I just got this mail from GoWild:

It's the season of giving, so I'm adding a 15% bonus booster on your first two deposits of 50 or more every day during the weekend offer

Plus, enjoy 25 extra free spins on Gift Rap on two deposits of 50 or more on Christmas Day from 00:00 to 23:59 GMT

Christmas weekend offers:
45% bonus and 25 free spins on Santa's Wild Ride on your deposit of 150 and above
35% bonus and 20 free spins on Deck The Halls on your deposit of 100 and above
25% bonus and 15 free spins on Gift Rap on your deposit of 50 and above
15% bonus and 10 free spins on Winter Gold on your deposit of 20 and above

I suppose it's nice that they wrote me at all since I haven't played there in over a year. ;)

That's not too bad considering what else has been on offer. The WR is calculated purely on the amount of bonus, so the percentage is not so much of a hinderance, and once WR are completed, the bonus is cashable. Beware the max bet rule though, especially if your deposits are small. Check the small print for anything else, such as prohibited games (0% weighting in contribution tables), overall max amount of bonus money, even deposit method restrictions.

Play to win, you will get bonus banned, but at least you will be ahead.

Not as good as the unlimited 70% on every deposit they foolishly did one weekend that saw me clean them out and get my bonus ban:D

I used to deposit plenty in gowild but stopped with it because i found out they had restrictions (as in max cashout) on comps and freespins, even on those that accompanied a deposit.
I had some long talks with support/manager and thats what i understood, and frankly found that unacceptable.
Their support is great btw, cool bunch of ladies :)
So even though i like the looks of most of their deposit bonuses, i found out i didnt when i "read" the smallprint.
I dont know if that still is maintained since i havent deposited there for maybe over a year..

That is unheard of with MGS...... until now. Even RTG casinos usually only restrict free chips to such rules, not bonuses with a deposit. I would not think to look for this when reading the terms for an MGS casino, but no doubt would have found it, and it could have made the difference between me playing or not playing.

I think you will find that the only bonuses that have max caps are no deposit free spins/cash, and these are waived once you become a regular player.

Worst Christmas Bonus.

To be fair the only casino that has given me a bonus was Ladbrokes- Yes you heard right LADBROKES LOL I had them down as the most tight fisted casino in the existence of the whole internet.

Was surprised when they gave me 50 free spins and I won some money from it.

Out of all the others 32Red have some really good promotions, shame I have not had anything free from them yet, but my brother has, nor GoWild despite playing loads too. I personally sacked off Ladbrokes because of the tightness attitude they have towards customers and played at 32Red instead as my first choice. But my perception has changed and glad Ladbrokes have started to value there customers :)

Merry Crimbo Everyone :)

To be clear: i was a very regular player, deposited plenty like i said:), had a pre-vip manager, i later heard that there was a "real" VIP manager, but i was apparantly not worthy yet.
Anyway, despite support being fun and efficient, i found out after depositing a few months, that there were cashout restrictions on certain deposit bonuses, either on the accompanying spins or cashback or on the 100 spins weekly.
Either way on bonuses that came from a deposit directly or indirectly!
So no go for me..

And if you want a clear picture of what i think regular is, i knew the whole support team, participated in jokes contests and such, been credited once for making the whole support team laugh, and deposited aproximatly 3K and never cashed out.
so thats a regular in my book:)
Point is i loved Go WIld, and did mention it more then once in past posts, but this restriction was too much of a pain for me.
If that rule was gone or had they assured me that they would waiver it, i'd still be a regular there.
They did say that they might waiver it, but thats not good enough..

Good question. I'm a member at 3 accredited Playtechs, VIP at one of them. Haven't heard anything yet. Maybe they're wating until Christmas Day ;) Then again, it seems only the top 2 or 3 casinos remembered Christmas this year, so it's not a Playtech thing I guess lol.
