Things started off well when I hit the 243 ways slots Playboy and The Finer Reels of Life at 0.60 bets. The games ran really well and as I hadn't seen these particular games in the Microgaming download suite for some time I really noticed just how much smoother the animation is when playing via this method.
The bonus converts into real money in £10 increments which can be monitored by hovering the mouse over your balance in the main page of the casino software. By the time I had completed one third of my bonus I had doubled my starting balance and decided to up my bets and play some of my favourite nine liners Break Da Bank Again and Thunderstruck. These games are very high variance and can often do your balance some real damage very quickly, which is exactly what happened to me today. Those Sapphires in Break Da Bank again are unbelievably elusive, but then what do I expect of a combination that can be worth over 4000x my bet?
Just as I was close to finally polishing off the wagering I had a massive hit in the Wild Magic bonus of Thunderstruck2 which boosted me up to £300 and I requested a withdrawal of almost all of that just leaving a little behind so I could play a little the next day. The money stayed in reversible mode for 48 hours which I made the mistake of doing on the second day, delaying my withdrawal by a further 48 hours. All told it took close to a week to receive my money.
This was only a couple of weeks ago and I haven't been back to play the rest of my welcome bonuses just yet. There is no time limit at Luxury and I guess you could say I am saving them for a rainy day - there's not many Microgaming bonuses available these days with a 30x wagering requirement after all.
