So far I'd managed one (rather huge) win out of three bonuses but I lost my last one pretty quickly and figured I may as well stick with RTG games for the rest of the evening. I decided to deposit a little more this time as it was another 75% match, and I'd been lucky with my last such offer. The wager requirement is just the same at 35x the deposit plus bonus and you can only play slots with these deals, which is a bit of a downer because I do often like to try and build my balance back up with Blackjack and Video Poker if I've just taken a battering on the slots although it might actually be a good thing for me as I go bust playing Blackjack SO often it's a wonder I even bother trying that game anymore... just last night I'd lost half a £100 balance playing MG slots and decided to try the premier blackjack to get back to my starting balance but lost the other half of my money in around five minutes .... it took over an hour to lose the first half on the slots!
I don't get to play RTG games anywhere as much as I would like so I've really been enjoying these bonuses from Golden Euro and I think I'll be really quite disappointed once I finish them all... I'll probably have to settle for the 50% reload instead I guess when the time comes!
I love RTG's game T-Rex and had pretty much forgotten about it's follow up "Megasaur", so decided to hit that to start with this session. I soon realized why I'd not been playing the game though and retreated to the safety of Count Spectacular pretty quickly! After getting a little of my balance back thanks to some timely stacked wilds I decided to try another couple of games I haven't bothered with for quite a while - Fruit Frenzy and Cleopatra's Gold. I have to admit, I'd been playing for around three hours now and was getting a little fed up with the identikit style of all of these games at this point and I'm so glad that RTG have recently started livening up the presentation of their newer games rather than using the exact same graphics and sounds assets for every slot.
Feeling like I'd had enough for the day I checked my remaining wagering requirement and my heart sank - I was only a little over half way through! My deposit of £100 had got me a starting balance of about 194 EUR so I had started with not that much short of 7,000 in wagering requirements and with bets of between 0.25 and 0.75 that's a real tall mountain to climb.
When I returned the next day I decided to be brave and upped my bets to around 1.25 in the hope of an early big hit. That paid off initially and I got my balance up to around 500EUR within the first half an hour but could do nothing but watch as it slowly made it's way back down to around 150EUR as I had started with. On the plus side though those larger bets certainly help to tackle the wagering requirement and the end was now within sight! I started checking it quite regularly and just as I cleared what was left I had a withdrawable balance of ... (drumroll) 112 EUR, a profit on my deposit of just 1 Euro ! :(
I decided to make a withdrawal and maybe play some other software for a bit. I definitely find myself tiring of playing at RTG casino's much quicker than other softwares despite the lure of the random jackpots. I guess it would help a lot if I could play games other than slots, so maybe I'll try that the next time I play Golden Euro.
Still, I got a whole lot of playtime and I didn't lose any money... and I understand you can't profit everytime, so this bonus was still a win for me!
