A tip for playing free bonus with max withdrawal (RTG Casinos)

8 replies • Last post

Hello,

I want to share my experience and some tips and a little caution for playing with any free chip/spins in RTG casino - especially Jackpot Capital, Grande Vegas, Slotastic, Golden Euro, Springbok.

In summary,

The system automatically resets the balance at the max withdrawal amount, instantly upon finishing the Playthrough. So, when you are luckily wining over the max withdrawal, you have to pay more attentions as you are getting closer to the end of the playthrough. For example, if you are playing in the auto-run mode, you can start to lose the balance without noticing the reset of the balance at the max withdrawal.

I am not sure if this bonus mechanism is applied to all of the bonuses with the max withdrawal of all RTGs.
But, I had this experience a few times in the casinos mentioned above, and actually, I lost some balance, or even all of it in trying to recover to the max.

The screenshots are attached to show you the example.

On the left, it is the one spin prior to finishing the playthrough, and on the right, it is the result after one spin.

Yeah I remember a player complained a few years ago that they were auto-playing a massive balance at a high stake because it was money they could not withdraw. Then the balance dropped to the max withdrawal and the game did another spin at $50 or something... and he won thousands. And the rogue RTG refused to pay of course, saying that the maximum withdrawal on a free chip was $100 or whatever. Even though their actions signified that the playthrough was done. I got them to admit that if he had withdrawn his money then redeposited and won on the first spin they would have had to pay. Which is nonsense.

Have a read of the comments thread on this review: Silver Oak Casino.

Ed, I've just read Silver Oak Casino review and something interesting came up. So there are groups of casinos owned by one "company"...why not just have a big one like, let's say, William hill or bet365? and if one of them is blacklisted does it automatically guarantee block on the rest?

I've had the same thing happen to myself. Took a $50 NDB with 50x playthrough. Had like $220 after 2 hours so was playing $5 a spin. Knew i was close to finishing wagering (like $200 left) but had it on auto for 25 spins. Was busy so checked back every 3-4 minutes. Must have hit something big coz i came back and my balance was $55 max withdraw was $100. Went to change game and checked wagering and i had no bonus pending. So i had been playing with real money at $5 a spin which i hardly ever do for the last 9($45) spins! Grrrr!!! Managed to get it back to $100 anyway but it was a heart stopper when i initially realized what had happened.

It is very common for companies to run multiple casinos and in many cases they are basically just "skins" of the same underlying casino. In most cases if we have one casino blacklisted then we blacklist all the other casinos from the same operator. It's usually not so much the casino that is the problem, it's the people running it.

I have a big problem with this rule. If they are going to drop your balance to the maximum cashout amount, then this signifies that your bonus is done, you have met the conditions, and you should be free to do whatever you want with the money. If you don't cash out and continue playing then they should pay whatever you win. Otherwise you are playing in a no win situation which is ridiculous. And in fact by not cashing out then depositing the money back in you are saving the casino money in transaction processing fees.

Hi, CL-Ed and other friends,

You know that there are some casinos (Club Worlds affiliates) which deduct the bonus amount itself from the withdrawal. I kind of think that these casinos probably won't apply this rule to free bonuses with the max withdrawal, because they will deduct the bonus amount, so, they have to give players the chance to raise it up to (Max Withdrawal + Bonus).

Does this make sense ??

And, actually, the casinos (Jackpot Capital affiliates) don't deduct the bonus from withdrawal.

If I have another lucky chance to check about this, I will share it, too.

I'm pretty sure this is built in to the RTG system so it is the same at all casinos that use their software. I don't know whether they can disable it though. They obviously can control whether or not the bonus money is cashable but it doesn't make a difference to the way the system works - like you said the cut-off is just bonus + max withdrawal.

Oh, I see. They probably will reset the balance at (Bonus + Max Withdrawal).
