Signed up to this casino a couple of days ago, not one of the best bonuses on here, but given a bit of luck it hads the possiblity of being one of the most profitable.
I used the deposit code 400CLUB, this being a 400% match up bonus up to a maximum of $800 with a 30x wagering requirement (quite reasonable for this size bonus) only problem was the bonus isn't cashable....
...so i deposited my $200, got credited with $800 and set to work i played using the well known and terrible method of doubling up, with the aim of doubling my bank roll to $2000 and then cruising to the finish until i had cleared the wagering requirement.
my betting method went (2 handed) $5, then $10, then $25, then $55, then $120, then $250
started plodding away at it with the thought that my $200 was lsot from the start as i do with most bonuses... got to about $5k wagered and had made $360ish... Nice i'm thinking...
that's when the first nasty down swing came, went on a massive run of losses and went down to as little as $80, over the next $2k of wagering like a maniac i pulled up to $1500ish and called it a night.
Attacked the bonus the same way from the start, continueing my betting, had a nice run $1700 with no major troubles, $1800, thinking ooh i'm getting close, then started gettign a bit iffy as i approached $1900..... by this point i had wagered about $10k
It's at this point i must mention that although my aim was to double up my starting BR i also wanted to have wagered at least 15x before i started playing normal.
Anyway, i carried on, got to $1930ish and was just under $11k wagered and then it happened.... nasty run of luck wagered something like $4k in about 5 minutes and busted out..... $1k or 2 short of my target and $70 short of my BR target....
so close yet so far...... still a lot of potential nonetheless
i highly reccomend this bonus if you are feeling a bit daring
- Learnt a valuable but very expensive lesson today... PartyCasino offered me a reload bonus of 25% up to $150, now I have had these from PartyCasino previously so I did not check the terms and deposited $600. It turns out that instead of the previous terms of 20 time bonus this one is 20 time bonus and deposit. Owch, as soon as I noticed this I knew I was in trouble and attempted to forfeit the bonus with no luck, so I proceeded to play and lose the lot with $25 hands. -$600 Lesson CHECK THE TERMS :-\Rated:

- Hello people,
First I want to compliment you on the great site you have built! It gives great actual information. I love it.
I am new at this casino bonus stuff and realize it's a great new way to earn money ;-). I already did my first casinos with Golden Palace (+ $ 800) and Starluck (+ $700). Wagered for sure to much to get the requirements met, but had a fair streak of luck at both and seemed I couldn't lose, so after betting 1s for a long time at BJ I was up quite a bit at both sites I increased my bets to 10 a hand and a few 25s a hand! I know this was risky too, because it's easy to get caught up in the fire of this game. So my advice is also to keep using the strategies that you need to use with 1 or maybe 2 dollar bets, till you are sure to make your WR and at least walk away with a smile.
I did the River Nile $1000 Free Play promotion and managed the WR of 10x the free play amount and 100 bets, ending up at 1500 or something, enough to get 200 transferred into my bonus account. So I deposited the 40 Euro (in my case) and got the bonus in my acount the next day. I managed to double up the total amount to around 500 Euro with 50 Euro hands om BJ (only count 2% or 5%, but a good game to try and double up) and after completing the 30x playthrough on American Roulette (counts 100%) I still had about 400 Euro ($ 520)left in my account. I played 1-18,19-36,red,black,odd,even and played just red for a while with 2 dollar bets till I met the WR. Cashed out the 400 Euro. With a 40 Euro deposit that's a nice profit I would say.
In total my first 3 casinos and total winnings of + $ 2000 for about 5 days of play.
So now I am waiting for it to hit my Neteller. Like you mentioned to me by email, only GP asked for ID. The other 2 didn't.
LCB, thanks for your email reply and keep up the good work! You haven't seen the last of me yet!
Ooooh! It's sooo many stories like that "I was sooo close, but I busted".

A usually do the next: maniac in the beginning (crazy bets like double or nothing) , but at the end of WR I usually slow down, cause I hope to save my winnings
P.S. U cannor always be lucky. If you won in the beginning - be slow in the end

I'm not one to make deposits at online casinos. I like using all the No Deposit Offers. Although the playthrough requirements are a bit tough, there is no risk with no deposits.
I used to make deposits, but my bad winning percentage has caused me to pursue other forms of entertainment.
But you must to deposit before be able to withdraw?

Something like this happened to me recently. I didnt check terms and conditions and I had to clear 75 times! I dont know how, but I managed to finish even with +30 with the whole thing. It was very bad, I had to play 3 days to finish this.
