I soon realized why I'd taken a break from trying to beat these promotions though - just 25% was on offer for this, my fifth deposit, and I'd failed to clear the wagering when they gave me a 50% a few weeks ago. If the wagering requirement was based on the bonus amount only it wouldn't be such a problem however all of these offers come with 35x the deposit plus bonus of wagering attached to them which makes a 25% match something of a liberty as far as I'm concerned - I deposit £40, receive £10 in bonus funds, and then have to wager £1,750 in order to clear the WR on my balance. That's 175x the pure bonus amount, incase you hadn't noticed, and I can't help but think it's a deliberate ploy on the part of Golden Euro to have this seriously unattractive bonus stage immediately before the £50 free chip handed out to all players who have made five deposits!
I decided I'd try beat the casino at their own game and made a tiny deposit of just £20 and I guess I almost wanted to lose it as quickly as possible so I could take advantage of the larger £50 chip I had waiting for me at the end of it! I already knew though that all no deposit bonuses at this casino come with a 60x wager attached to them, so I wouldn't really be any better off in terms of the actual number of bets I'd have to make to convert my funds to cash.
It didn't matter though because I was running HOT this session and soon found myself staring at a balance of over 400 EUR, not even really sure how I got there! I ended up clearing the wagering requirement long before I was finished gambling for the evening which just goes to show once again that you just never know whats going to happen when you take a bonus offer such as this - smaller matches are often luckier for me than larger ones, a situation I absolutely abhor but alas, cannot change!
