Silly Me! I took a bonus - Slot O Cash

7 replies • Last post

I forgot about how crazy these play through requirements are since I haven't really played actively at online casinos (except once in a great while at Win A Day) in forever - probably over a year.

So I deposited 35 at Slot O Cash, and they also gave me 50 free spins on that wrestling Libre game whatever it is called. While playing the 50 free spins I won 14 more in the bonus round, so really 64 free spins I came out with a whopping $9.75 . The "joke is on me part" was the following announcement:

You have won $9.75! To receive your winnings simply wager 2,109.75 lol Really? I love the "simply wager" part. So I guess I have my work cut out for me.

I also used the 10 free chip and only made it halfway through play through on that.

On a brighter note, we have these new lottery tickets in Minnesota that are pretty cool called Loteria. They sell out everywhere, but I have won on them when I can find them .They are a three dollar ticket and I won 20, then 5, then today I won 50 on the ticket my son picked out for me while running errands. I told him I am working my way up to the maximum prize of $25,000 on that ticket. I don't buy scratch offs that often, but these have been good to me. Smile

Just hit a $44.00 dollar bonus round on Loose Caboose betting a quarter. Will keep me playing a while, anyway.

Wager $2109.75 to collect $9.75? They can't be serious can they?

That wagering is about 216x your winnings. Ludicrous.

Yeah, when I read the fine print I certainly did not figure it out that way, CL Ed! lol

And I guess big bets aren't everything, because I won 44 dollars in the Loose Caboose bonus round betting 25 cents and to contrast that I just won 24 spins on Three Stooges Brideless Groom and came out with a disappointing 14.76. I really hate when that happens! Sad

This is why I play at Win A Day if I want a bonus. Play through is usually never more than 17x and that is high for them - I do think it used to be even lower, and I think it is for some of their offers.

Whoa, that is an insane playthrough. I'd just assume ask them to cancel the bonus out. I agree with you on Win A Day though: their bonus terms are generally pretty favorable and I love their customer service.

I could have sworn it was 30x but too late to cancel cuz I did the free spins. Live and learn all over again. lol
