        We all see it, some who are new to gambling believe it, others who are more of the veteran classes know exactly what they are but what do you guys think of the freeplay bonuses?

        Now there is a thing where people may play them to get a "feel" for the casino but in reality is there any reward by taking them?

        So for MG casinos its advertised as the chance you "cannot afford to miss because you cant lose", and you keep what you win... and at Rivals its freeplay in stages.

        I dont know but each of them mean completely nothing to me and I dont see any logic in them existing (apart from maybe reeling in someone who doesnt know gambling well enough to know what they are)

        So if an MG says "have $3000 on us" that means if you meet a very low (and impossible to not beat) WR and have $100 balance over the original $3000 then its yours..... as long as you deposit $50 and then have to wager the total balance 40X before cashout. Thats like getting a standard 200% bonus which nearly all casinos already offer as standard on your first deposit.

        Even when playing it you dont gain any incentives or bonus points. Yes some Rivals used to give 0.3 points per $10 wagered on slots (very little but still something) but now they dont even give that.

        So I dunno, it makes it worse when casinos brand them as "no deposit bonuses". I just see them as a way for casinos to cover up people depositing, make people think its easy free cash and then wham before they know it they end up depositing all the time

        Lately a few bonuses at Tropica have given comp points. 

        I play the multi-stages but probably will never make the second stage.  It's somehow more fun than playing "for fun".  Who wants to play for fun?  We want to know that *maybe* we can get some cash out of our efforts.  Maybe that's why they give us the large bankroll in the multistage.  Most people will never cashout or never intend to.

        "freeplay" bonuses at Bingo are just play money.  Again, no point in playing for fun, really, unless you are just really bored and broke.

        But this week I've made playthrough at Tropica twice on $5 chips, and am withdrawing $25 on each.  And at Vegas Regal, cashed out $42 on a $7 free chip.  So, it paid off for me.  I have no income right now, so this free money is awesome and a lifesaver.

        RTG freeplay bonuses?  they are so generous because you have to deposit in between each one.  People still play them without depositing.

                          wtg chilly and by the way i really dont like the multistage either i think its designed to not only make the depositers as well as the none depositers deposit (i really miss the regular freebies they were designed to make the none depositers deposit whereas the regular depositers could cashout lol)

        ah, and then here's the rub, after cashing out on the free bonuses, you may get "no promotions available".  Like I just did!

        I personally don't care for the multi stage promos at all. And i hope it is not the new wave that all other software follow.

        It is a replacement for the ND chip. And i don't want to have to be a Philadelphia lawyer to read the terms and conditions with every level i go.

        Give me a no deposit chip like the good ole days!

        Don't play these kinds of promotions. They are doctored up deposit disappointments.
