Is this unusual? (LUCKY RED)

10 replies • Last post

Hi Everyone!

I was thinking of taking a match bonus at Lucky Red casino, and I was reading the allowed games. In the past, when I accepted match bonuses at other casinos I remember almost everything being excluded EXCEPT slots. However, for this coupon, the ONLY games excluded are:

Baccarat
Craps
Roulette
Sic Bo

BlackJack is included, and the scratch cards (which I don't play) and the Bingo, etc., and even Video Poker, which is almost always excluded for bonuses from what I have observed.

So, is this adding in more games to include in the bonuses unusual or something new or is it just me?

I don't know

Perhaps they are trying to make it look more lucrative. What is the playthrough amount for blackjack? Is it something crazy like 1,000x?

Yes, it is a crazy amount of playthrough, but the thing is, I often meet it there for some reason (hope I am not jinxing myself, lol).

I am just really surprised, because whenever I took bonuses before black jack, AND video poker were ALWAYS excluded, and this just seems a little more generous in choices, at least.

Good for you Hope. Maybe business if off and they are trying to get as many people to play as possible?

I have seen it listed before where the blackjack is available, but it always comes with the caveat of having a huge playthrough. Are the wagering requirements the same as they typically are on slots?

Either way thats a neat bonus. I hope you hit it there!

I am not sure. Maybe that is only with the no-deposit bonuses, but I could have sworn it also applied to the match bonuses, too.

Every time I accept a match bonus, I promise myself I won't do it again, but because of how little I deposit, I always find myself falling for it. And yes, once again, the play-through is HUGE/ridiculous!

I hope I can make play-through, and hit a big one, too! Smile I could really USE one of those huge jackpots about now, lol!

You and me both, Hope.

I had another dream last night that I won the lottery and then my ex-sister in law came to me and asked for some money and I told her where to shove it...

If only that dream could come true!

No it is not unusual. Like slim says, they will often allow those games but jack up the wagering requirements to levels that make it pointless. Its more about letting you play those games without disqualifying you from your winnings than offering you a bonus that you can play all the way through on just baccarat or blackjack (well you could but it would take forever).

Thanks, everyone!

I think from now on I will stick to no-deposit bonuses and as for the rest, I will not be tempted anymore. I will save up until I can deposit enough on my own, without the bonuses and ridiculous play-throughs, even if that means depositing less often.
