Offering you a tiny different perspective...
Not quite a fan of conspiracy theories but... Have you considered all this to be just the next step into the #BonusIsDead campaign?
Yep... we seen the start of it a few years ago when things like 32 Red's 100% depo offer became 75%, then 50% and now they offer 25% (some lucky ones get more). I don't remember when it all went a bit wrong but i do remember saying years ago 'auch 200% offer, i got a 300% the week before' Then the 200 became 100...etc etc.
Even Video Slots are slashing their perks
Increased taxes, UK wise, have basically meant other countries are subsidising a lot of UK punters as well
Sweden? Well that's one bonus per account. They're dead and buried
Why? Taxes? Operational costs? Market Saturation? Bonus abuse? Probably a mix of all.
Some casino may seek to offer cash back instead and other more creative ways of giving something back, who knows....
But yeah, the bonus glory years have gone...though i see Grosvenor are offering a 100% SUB with 5 or 10 x wagering
I can live without bonus's...but for people who like a bit of play time, especially in this age of HV slots, it is a blow.
What annoys me is casino who are still trying to offer them. If you can't offer decent bonus's...Don't. The effect is that in doing so you'll simply lose people as they'll think 'this is rubbish'. If they came out and said 'listen no more bonus offers BUT...', then i think that's better personally.
Take Novibet? I haven't had a bonus since i signed up? But i still play because i get, on average, 50 wager free spins every other week at 40p plus. Not massive but you can bet i withdraw more from them in a year than i do with a weekly reload
I think we'll see a lot more races/tournaments/cashback for those casinos wanting to offering players in the future.
I actually, sometimes, preferred when it was a sticky bonus in the UK. Why? Because if you got a bit 300% offer you could just take a massive chance with 5 quid spins. 999/1000 you bust but i'd a few where i met 80k wagering by hitting it lucky.
