I came across this offer in my mailbox one day. 20 no-deposit free spins on Gonzo's Quest upon registration. Not bad, I was thinking.
Just register to open a new account, and presto, 20 free spins, without having to make any deposit. If I win, then I'll make that deposit, I was thinking too. Standard procedure at most casinos, but not at Grand Ivy Casino, as I found out later!
So I happily signed up, played Gonzo's Quest, and the game was good to me. I got a Free Fall game after doing a few spins, then another one, still within the 20 free spins.
At the end of it, I won a nice $43.24.
I then tried to open the game Fruit Zen to continue playing, but a pop-up message came on saying that the game doesn't exist! Why don't these people check on the games that they are listing as available? I wonder how many more games are actually not existing at the moment! Perhaps it's just a ploy to make it look as though they have a lot of games in their casino, perhaps not, I really don't know. I don't want to go checking out every game. It's not my job, it's theirs!
The second thing that I really don't like is the bonus terms. The bonus account (with any winnings in it) remains unlocked until a deposit is made to unlock it! When I read this term, before I signed up at the casino, it didn't make much sense to me. After winning $43.24 on Gonzo's Quest from the no-deposit 20 free spins, I continued playing and won $20.12 more.
Then I tried to play Fruit Zen, started cursing when that game didn't exist at all, so I ended up playing Starburst. I made some nice wins on it though, brought my balance up to $100, then decided to check up on how much more wagering was needed to be done. To my surprise, it read 0% wagering completed! I found myself cursing like hell all over again! Then I knew what that bloody bonus term meant - no deposit made, no wagering counted. I think I should have cleared all the wagering by then when I had that $100 in my balance, but all that play was not counted.
When I finally made a deposit and continued playing, I lost all my deposit money, and the $100 bonus money went like the wind too! That was one bloody unpleasant surprise I learned at Grand Ivy Casino! If ever I play again there, it will only be without taking any bonus! Personally, I think that specific bonus term is bloody ridiculous!
