Hi thebigthing. I really like the no-deposit offers, especially when I was new. I saw them as an opportunity to try out a casino, then decide if I would like to deposit in the future. I never really counted on winning, although would have been nice, but I see the free chips as an opportunity.

Because I am not a big spender, the match bonuses can be very tempting to me. However, I am also leery of them, because I would hate to win, then not meet my play-through. So, for me to take a casino up on the match bonuses, I must make sure the play-through requirements are as low as possible.

What other promotions are even out there I wonder? Slots Galore used to have cool contests and even a 50 dollar monthly give away for the best comment on their blog, and that was kind of fun.

I also like slots tournaments, especially the longer ones, which are difficult for me to find now.

Hey, well, to be honest i think it's a mistake to accept a casino promotion. Many times had huge wins and as Hope said, lost all because the play-through was too high, etc... The best option is to deposit without a bonus. Almost all my accounts are in american dollars because 1 euro is about 0.75 dollars so i can play with more coins with the same money.
Will never forget when in the past i had a balance of 1.200 and lost all because i didn't met the play-through. Well, i think the promotions are created by the casinos for their own protection. If you win big in the first spins and it happens a lot, you will lose it all at the end. Some days ago, got a free chip 0f 150 from jackpot capital, my balance was over the 1000 and lost all at the end AGAIN! Was a waste of time ( 3 hours spinning for nothing.)

Ahh, about no deposit bonus... well, at Rome casino won 1000 in a 0.45 spin, max cashout was 150. If i was playing with my money , not with a free chip, i could cashout the 1000. So i guess i just lost money.

I like the free chips, but haven't been able to cash out any as of yet. Maybe in due time...

I just got 30 dollars from Lucky Red. They are really the only ones who send me those chips when they haven't "seen me for a while." I have it up over 150.00 right now cuz Loose Caboose went crazy last night. That is all I played, lol! We will see how I do, and if I can cash out or not.

Ha! I am sure the maximum withdrawal will not allow me enough to buy you a Porsche, but I will certainly keep you in mind for my future big win jackpots! lol

I just made 50 dollars on ONE spin playing Basketball (still playing on the free chip). I got four female cows, then a basketbull guy, then another cow, for five of a kind female cows, lol, for 50 dollars. LOVE those big spins, but just wish they happened more often. Going to go see how close I am to play through, as I have only been playing for a few minutes each day.

Won a nice little pot on Bovada Hold Em today, too. The other person had three of a kind, went all in, and I had FOUR fives! That was a fun one, too, lol.

Thanks! That was fun getting the four of a kind. I love when I can bluff and make everyone fold when I have NOTHING. I did that ONCE yesterday. I try not to get too cocky at the poker table, because they can turn around and catch me, sometimes, lol. I only play the nickels and dimes. Not brave enough to invest more. I want it to be fun, not stressful. Smile
