What is up with Rival casinos?

1 reply • Last post

I remembered playing at Rival casinos last year, I wouldnt take bonus if playthru is over 30x. There were good bonuses back then, cashable, low playthru,.... Nowaday the bonuses are crazy at these Rival casinos with playthru set up high in the moutain, lol. Example, Vegas Regal has 500% bonus with 50x playthru and 2x max the bonus cash out. Bonus rocket level 1,2 and 3 with 100%, 200% and 300% accordingly, with 40x, 90x and 140x in playthru. Yes, I'm not kidding, lol, 140x in playthru at vegas regal. Can you beat it? haha.
I saw 400% bonus with 55x in playthru at Tropica casino. 300% with 45x playthru at orangegamez. I know myself that I dont want to take small % bonus with low playthru because my balance will be gone in 5 min with rival casinos. I'm planning to deposit with rival casinos, but good bonuses are hard to find.

I know what you mean. In fact so many of them started doing this that it forced us to change our bonus ranking algorithms here.

We had all these 500%, 800%, even 2000% bonuses at the top of our rankings but they were actually hopeless - they either had huge wagering requirements or win limits imposed. So now we take all that into account and they don't appear near the top any more.

High playthrough is bad but I think capped winnings are even worse. What if you play and its the one day in your life where you hit a major jackpot. Sorry ... you won $100,000 but you can only withdraw a maximum of $1000 or something. Not good enough! Vote with your wallets people!

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.
