Biggest Bonus Cashout

14 replies • Last post

I myself have never been able to cash out on a bonus, and rarely take them, but I was thinking today: Does anyone ever cash out?

Have any of you ever hit it big on a bonus? What is the biggest take that you have ever gotten from an online casino? Where were you playing and how much were you able to take out?

This is an interesting question. I have not gambled enough to cash out yet, but I'm optimistic that one day I will.

I have made loads from bonuses over the years - well into 5 figures total. My biggest single win on a bonus was a bit over 10k. I made most of my profits playing blackjack bonuses.

Casinos are a lot smarter now and they generally structure them so that its harder to win off them - either by increasing the wagering requirements, excluding low house edge games like blackjack, or capping the win (or all of the above). I usually don't play with a bonus any more unless the wagering requirements are reasonable - i.e. less than 30x the bonus in total.

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

Wow, Ed! You really should pen a book about the old days of online gambling and the stuff you got away with back then and then compare it with how it has all changed over the years.

I am sure you have got some real golden stories!

Well, my biggest cashout from a bonus was 1.000€, last year at Prime casino. My deposit was very low, abouy 55 or 60, i don't remenber. As Ed said, to claim a bonus with a high play-trough is a mistake (all over 25-30 is wasting your deposit money) because many slots are connected in a circle. That means, if you had a big win in one slot, will be very hard to get another one soon even if you play in 3-4 different slots.

Wow! I am impressed. They must not have had cash out limits back then or they were VERY high? Too bad those days are gone. Sad

I have never done well with the free chips, but I did appreciate them so I could get to know the casino first, before I decided if I would be interested in depositing with them....or not.

Almost all of them were deposit match bonuses, not free chips. Casinos used to offer things like a fully cashable 100% bonus up to $2000 with only 30xB required on blackjack which pays back 99.6%. It was some of the easiest money I've ever made. You just had to have the patience to grind out the wagering.

Wow, that is incredible. I wish they still offered such great deals!

I played through a deposit bonus at Slotastic and cashed out $3k , the withdrawl was smooth and quick I received a check in 10 days and had no problems. I have cashed out on 4 separate occasions at Slotastic, but I don't usually take the deposit bonus. This is my favorite casino to play at since my own personal experiences have all been positive.

Thanks for sharing SpinCycle, and welcome to Casino Listings! What kind of games do you like to play? Was there one particular game that you hit the 3k at?

I guess I do qualify for this thread now, lol, because I was thinking only of "no deposit" bonuses. I took at bonus at Slot O Cash, and I hit the Lucky Tiger minor progressive for 800 dollars, which I posted about. I was so, so, so scared and worried and I figured I would never make play-through! I thought, "just my luck to hit that thing when I had play through to meet!" Then I made play-through faster than I ever imagined and had even MORE money! I HAD TO keep playing after I hit that (to meet play through) and got my total up to around 1100.00

As far as my withdrawal, after months of working on it (because of my "unusual circumstances" and Slot O Cash somewhat limited withdrawal options) I may be close to having good news, but I will post about that when I am 100% certain.

Are you saying that the money isn't at your account yet?

Haha, "old buddy." I will have to win a LOT more than I did to buy you a new iMac, lol! Nice try, though. I will keep you in mind when I win THE BIG ONE. Wink
