For a change though, this is a story with a happy ending! This casino allows you to play your free spins on Gonzos Quest or the excellent Koi Princess if you wish instead of Starburst, both of which are not only far superior games but also double the value of the free spins in a stroke as well. Only the most inexperienced of gamblers would choose Starburst in this scenario!
The match bonus itself comes with 30x bonus wagering the same as the 1st deposit offer despite the fact this page states it is 30x deposit plus bonus - I just took this bonus earlier this month so am quite certain this is still correct. On a match of less than 100% the difference between 30xB and 30xD+B is enormous - a full 66% - and whilst I wouldn't usually consider taking a 50% match at 30xD+B, 30x the bonus amount only makes this a very attractive deal and basically a no brainer.
It's great that they have done this to prevent players from accidentally breaking the rules but why not give players the list of games that have been disallowed before they have made their deposit?
It was disappointing not being allowed to use my bonus to play Dead or Alive but I've pretty much got used to it now, anytime I find it available for play with a bonus now I count it as my lucky day... apart from that minor disappointment I consider this to be about as good as a 50% match bonus gets these days.
