There is obviously an advantage to taking the Free Chip bonus at no deposit casinos regardless of the playthrough because, well, it's a Free Chip. You can either win money or effectively lose nothing.
My question is: What advantage could there possibly be in taking a deposit bonus when it requires anywhere from 20-40x playthrough on both the deposit and the bonus? Secondly, is it not the case that you essentially play, "Straight-Up," if you refuse the deposit bonus?
If we consider a deposit of $50 with a 50% bonus, effective amount, $75, with a 20x playthrough, you would have to playthrough $1,500 bets and still have money left over to be successful. Technically, success would be having anything OVER $50 leftover, but on an investment like that, I probably wouldn't cash for less than $100.
However, if I simply deposit $50 and make my way up to $100 playing, "Straight-Up," which I think should be much easier, and there is no minimum playthrough, why would I want the deposit bonus?
I'm not trying to be condescending, I'm sure there is some advantage to taking the bonus, I'm just having difficulty determining what it is.
Where's the Advantage?
