I only managed a small profit from my fourth deposit bonus but I was happy to wait a few days for the money to be returned to me so I could put it back in to Luxury for my 100% match. I figured I'd go for the maximum bonus possible this time which was £150 for a starting balance of £300 and a wagering requirement of £4500 - really not too scary but certainly a good nights play depending on betsize, possibly even a full weekend I'm sure for some players.
I was obviously hoping for an early boost so went for some high variance games including Thunderstruck2 and Megaspin Break Da Bank Again, chewing through my first £50 in record time. I decided to lower my betsize a little and of course immediately hit a huge bonus round... why does that always happen!
One of the downsides of starting at a new casino with many Microgaming slots is that many of the bonus modes are locked until you have managed to catch the scatter symbols several times. I'd managed to unlock all the different options in The Finer Reels of Life so switched to that game rather than continuing with Thunderstruck2, although playing with a bonus is definitely a good opportunity to get these features unlocked with the minimum personal investment.
At the end of my first evening I had only cleared roughly half of the wagering requirement - there's no way to get an exact figure at these casinos other than asking support and I don't really see much point bothering them when you can get a rough idea of your remaining wagering by hovering over your balance in the bottom left hand corner which reveals what portion of your balance is currently cash and which is still reserved as bonus.
I came back a couple of days later feeling charged and ready to win, and although things started off slowly I eventually had an awesome hit on the Sofia running wilds feature in Playboy which boosted my balance enough to see me through the wagering and finally make a decent sized withdrawal of £500.
I had a great time playing through these bonuses at Luxury and the experience really reminded me a lot of why these Microgaming downloads used to be some of my absolute favourite casinos. Sure, the game selections are a bit limited now and the withdrawal times are not the best but when it comes to the welcome bonus package on offer here, it really is as good a deal as you will get anywhere especially at an MG download and I think Casino Rewards deserve credit for that.
