Cashing Out: Newbie Question

9 replies • Last post

Hey,

Another "newbie" question.

This may be getting too "nosey," so just ignore if that is true, but I am curious as to how much people deposit, and wondering what is the least amount that you win to cash out?

Do you cash out at three or four hundred then redeposit 50 or 100? Or do you wait for the amount to get to 1,000 or more or does it vary?

Is there a certain way you do this or a method to your madness?

I have only won enough ONCE where I think I SHOULD have cashed out, but no where near that now, and it wasn't even that much. However, this would clearly be different than our cash out habits at a "brick and mortar," so wondering if you have "set ways" or guidelines for yourselves?

Anything you can share will be helpful.

Thanks!

Hope

Back in my early days of online gambling, I'd make smaller deposits, say $50-100 to start and I'd cash out any time I was up at the end of the day. That was due to it all being new to me and I needed to develop trust with the casino(for my own piece of mind). Today I don't cash out unless I'm up at least $1500. Even then I may just leave it there.I found that my comps/bonuses were always better when i cashed out less often.

Hope this helps,
HR

Thank you, highroller! Yes, this does help. It is helpful to hear how others do things in the world of online gaming, since I am so new to all this.

I have only had one cashout in my short online gambling history. It was a cashout for $100, as I was still very leery of the casino I played at. Now that I know the withdrawal was safe I am sure I would wait until I won a little bit more. My deposits have all been relatively small as well. Nothing I can't afford to lose.

My deposits are small, too, barba.

I am also enjoying some variety by playing the free 50 dollar no deposit offers right here on CL, which is a nice way to try a casino and see if I want to deposit there later.

Doing that at Lucky Red right now. I still don't completely understand the "Play through" thing, although poor Ed has tried to explain it to me a thousand times, lol. I do know I can only withdraw a certain amount even if I won a lot on the free 50 bucks and I have to play through a certain amount to even do that. Still a fun way to play.

Still enjoying the "Lucky Last" slots, but I was a tad bit upset when I retriggered FOUR times for a total of 28 spins and ended with only 20.44! Better than nothing, I guess, but really?

Thanks for the feedback, keep it coming! I am learning, little by little.

hope777 - casinos aren't too fond of players that do not make deposits. The Terms and conditions are geared to make it near impossible to cash out.
Personally I don't care for no deposit bonuses, they attract bonus hunting type players that ruin it for real gamblers.
At the end of the day, with small deposits, you'll get far better bonuses with a legitimate chance to actually cash them out than you will with the no deposit type bonuses .

Happy Gambling...

Thanks, highroller!

I only tried the no deposit bonuses for two casinos and it was my way to preview the casino. At both, after I played the bonus, I did make a deposit. Smile

Now, another question: when you deposit to click NO BONUS or do you take the bonus money. I know there are pros and cons, but not sure.

Slots galore just gave me 20,000 points for my bday which is equal to 20 dollars play, which I thought was really nice!

I signed on and the message popped up, and my account was getting kind of low there, so what a nice surprise~!

I generally don't play with a bonus much any more. I have a rule that I don't take a bonus if the wagering requirements are more than 20-30x the bonus amount. Otherwise I am locked into playing for longer than I would like sometimes.

If you are on a long bonus playthrough though after hitting a decent win, my tip is to split it up over a couple of sessions. Don't sit there trying to clear it all in one go, its too tempting to increase the bets to clear it quicker and that can lead to disaster!

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

Thanks for the tips, Ed.

I still think trying out the bonuses is a nice way to try before I buy, lol!

And isn't that why Casinolistings lists all those nice bonuses for us, I ask very respectively? lol

I will try to limit those I try, but I am having way too much fun, lol!

Of course - different strokes for different folks. Some people never ever want to play without a bonus, others don't like them. I'm more of a pragmatist - I'll take them when there is good value on offer!
