Recently, I received in my mailbox an offer from Diamond 7 Casino, offering a Welcome Package consisting of a nice 200% bonus on the first deposit, plus 50 no-deposit free spins on the game Spinata Grande. This was definitely better than the current offer of just 20 free spins as listed in AskGamblers, so I visited the site, checked all the terms and finally signed up.
The 50 no-deposit free spins was waiting for me once I had verified my email. Not really my favourite slot game this Spinata Grande, but when the spins are free, who doesn't want them, right? Well, those 50 spins didn't take long to spin off, finished in just a few minutes, giving me a win of $5.92. Not a lot, I must say. Then I switched over to Fruit Zen, but the game doesn't exist! If it doesn't exist, then the game should be taken off the list.! After a short cursing, I then turned to Starburst. Well, as expected, the burstings were far apart and fruitless, so my $5.92 simply went down all the way to zero!
As for the 200% first deposit bonus...I'm putting it on hold for now, because Fruit Zen is not available and Starburst was simply hungry. Not so keen on any other games.
Frankly speaking, I am not in favour of any free spins, with deposits or without, that carry a 35x wagering requirement as at Diamond 7 Casino. In fact, I don't prefer any free spins that carry a turnover requirement! Why? Because in this day and age, there are much more better offers to be found. The best is definitely free spins that doesn't have any wagering at all. First started by Thrills Casino (if I'm not mistaken) a few years back, then many other casinos soon followed. The next best would be those with just 1x turnover requirement. Not many casinos have this kind of offer, and are usually found at casinos operated by EveryMatrix.
The other thing that I don't like at all is a turnover requirement imposed on any deposit and the bonus given, which in this case is 35x deposit+bonus. For new or unknowing players, this may seem acceptable, but when compared to other available options and offers, this requirement certainly falls behind. A 35x turnover requirement on the bonus alone would be more acceptable! The rationale is very simple. A deposit is real cash, but a bonus is free money given as an incentive for players to play at their casino, so restrictions imposed upon them are deemed reasonable and acceptable.
