I was still waiting for my withdrawal from my second deposit bonus and was really just looking to have a bit of fun, and almost decided just to skip this bonus altogether. I eventually decided to do a little £80 deposit though, calculating that a £120 starting balance and £4,800 wagering requirement would be roughly doable over the course of the weekend.
I soon wished I hadn’t though as the slots were not very kind to me, and my often-used strategy of switching over to roulette or blackjack to build my balance back up is completely unavailable at this casino because none of those games are permitted whilst a bonus is active at all, your balance simply does not appear within the games. That’s nice that they prevent you from placing any bets which could invalidate your winnings, but I wish they would just do what so many other places do and just give these other types of games a 0% contribution percentage, allowing you to at least play them when your luck isn’t coming through on the slots.
Still, I did manage a withdrawal from both my first and second deposits here, so I guess I should be happy enough. In truth though I think that anytime you see a match offer of less than 100% with a deposit plus bonus wagering requirement it’s probably best to just walk away, or have it removed from your account before beginning play. The 25 free spins on Aloha! Thrown in with this offer definitely don’t change anything as they are only worth £2.50. Not recommended overall, although the earlier welcome bonuses and the casino in general are all good.
