Given a choice of 200% deposit bonus plus 35 free spins, or 150% deposit bonus plus 50 free spins, which one would you choose? I chose the 200% bonus option, simply to give me a slightly bigger starting balance. Getting 35 free spins or 50 free spins are rather meaningless to me, because either one may not give any worthwhile wins at all, but a bigger starting balance can make a nice difference, plus affording a longer play time!
The 35x deposit plus bonus turnover requirement is not to my liking at all (I usually would not take up such bonuses), but I gave Goodwin Casino an exception, but most probably just this one time, hehehe. I deposited $20, got $60 to start playing, and I then went searching for my few favourite games to play. First game search, Supe It Up, by Microgaming – available, whoopie! With this game available, I don’t need any other game to play, unless it is having a drought season, hahaha.
I spent several hours just on this one game, and I managed to get my balance up to almost $200 at one point in time, before deciding to check on my wagering progress. None! Zero wagering completed! Damn! Supe It Up wasn’t/isn’t a restricted game, so it should have contributed to the wagering rollover. I just couldn’t figure out the ‘why?’, so I decided to quit the game and try something else instead, just to see if the wagering would roll.
Next game played was Demon, by PlaynGo, but only because there was an on-going screenshot contest on this game. Thankfully, Demon played quite well for me on that day, even on my first ever play on it, and I managed to get 3 winning screenshots of over 100x wins each. That was a good play indeed! With PlaynGo games, you could go bust within minutes! Hahaha.
Nonetheless, I was really disappointed that Supe It Up did not contributed to the wagering, because if it did, I would have most probably completed the bonus wagering with a small win in hand. Instead, this disappointment let me down quite badly - I lost my focus, and I busted all my $220 balance on one stupid NetEnt game – Cash-o-matic, simply because a friend had a good time on this game! I actually wanted to play on Finn And The Swirly Spin game, but the game wasn’t available, and that got my mood down even more, finally ending my day with a lousy miserable bust!
