Don't be fooled by some casino promotions.......

2 replies • Last post

Hi CL Members,

I don't know about you but sometimes i see promotions and i think to myself......are you serious??

There was one just not too long ago, i won't mention the casino but there was a promo i just didn't get.

Here is how it went........

It was a contest that was promoted. Make a minimum deposit of $25 and try to build your bankroll to 25k. If you are lucky enough to do this you can keep your winnings.

Now many thought it was a great promo and eagerly deposited $25 with stars in their eyes for a possible 25k. My question was wouldn't the same rule apply if i deposited $25 without entering this contest?? Not only that but what if i won 10k? Would my winnings be void because i didn't reach the 25k requirement to win?

Beware of promos and how they are worded. The marketing department may have an awesome way to make the promo sound attractive, but in reality your not getting anything.

I'm going to take a guess that it was DaVinci's Gold?

I think the difference is that you deposit $50 and they give you an extra $500, so you start with $550. So that gives you a good head start. Its not a bad idea but does have a few things that I didn't like.

I don't like the way they heavily advertise it as "no wagering required". Well if someone can explain to me how you can turn $550 into $25,000 without wagering anything then I am all ears!

Also, I believe they set the limits on the games lower when you take the bonus to make it harder. On average if everyone who signed up played slots at $50 or $100 a spin there would be quite a few winners.

They do have a winners page on their site where they name many people who have won at least $5000 on these challenges.

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

Another thing that makes it almost impossible is that most promos like this do not allow the progressive jackpot slots to be played. This makes it even tougher to achieve such a goal.
