Putting aside the "rigtard" arguments for a while then, I decided to use some of those prior winnings to boost my deposit for this third stage bonus at Monte Carlo, but I wasn't quite up for making the maximum £500 deposit required to take full advantage of this promotion. I might have gone for it if I have a bit more money in my e-wallet though because tghe wagering requirement of 40x the bonus amount only is really quite favourable on a 50% bonus and I suspect that a large percentage of players who pick a middle-range bet size then stay patient will be able to make a small profit from this particular offer if that's how they choose to play it.
Not me though, I rarely go for the safe option and went out all guns blazing with my £300 balance, £4,000 wagering requirement and target of making a withdrawal of £1,000... Dead or Alive was my game, 0.36 was my bet size, and my fingers were tightly crossed for the duration! I managed a couple of bonus rounds with the five extra spins early on but no wildline, and also managed a couple of sets of four scatters but not five... wagering was taking a long time and I ended up browsing some other games whilst DoA was doing its thing in the background, hunting for the elusive bonus rounds... it was obviously going to be a long night!
It's getting more and more rare finding a casino where I can enjoy this game with bonus money these days so I was really pleased to have the chance to do so at Monte Carlo and as many people will tell you the base game in DoA can seem really quite low variance at times and if your lucky your balance can end up not really moving very much over thousands and thousands of spins providing you get the odd five of a kind of the stars or holsters. It actually took me around 12 hours with the slot spinning constantly to clear that wagering requirement, perhaps not so surprising as it required around 11,000 spins, but I did eventually got there although i didn't see a single five scatters or wildline during that time.
Way past four in the morning I finally decided to call it a day with a balance of £150 - a loss on my deposit sadly, but I figured if they withdrew it quickly enough I could look at using it for the 4th deposit bonus and if not I could always reverse it when I wanted to play again the following day. As it turned out the casino did credit my Skrill account in plenty of time for my next session and although I didn't make a profit from this bonus I definitely enjoyed using it and was fully happy with the casino throughout my evenings play.
