What have you found is the safest/best game to try and play through the rollover requirements? I have a deposit bonus with 25x rollover but have no idea what to play to try and clear the rollover
There is a 90% chance you will not make it through your rollover no matter what game you chose to play.
Come on now give me a little hope
25x rollover is pretty wild. Say you deposit $500 and get a 50% match with a 25x rollover. You get $250 extra and the price for that $250 is having to play $18,750 before you are able to withdraw. They call that a promotion. L.O.L.
I was in the same situation how do I do it? Last night I don’t know what happened. But this is how my night went. Till almost 4 AM. Woke up sick . Good luck hopefully we are able to complete a Rollover one day. There’s a few more but won’t let me upload them.
Yeah this mats crazy it like dealing with a credit card
Personally I found it best not to use a deposit bonus. That way I can play with no rules and pull my money out whenever I like. Let’s say I hit $500. I wanna cash out, right. But if I have a rollover requirement, I will most likely be giving it all back to the casino.
I agree but that’s bovada’s bonuses for you lol
Update: Deposited $54 for a 100% deposit match. Currently up to $650 by hitting two full house progressives on Let it Ride. Only 25% through my rollover though lol
I find the comments on this thread to be pretty silly. 1st of all, using no deposit bonus is your choice, i guess, but it changes absolutely nothing, since you can always just forfeit a bonus that you feel is getting in the way of your withdraw. Also, 25x is the smallest playthrough i’ve seen on any online casino’s 100% match bonus. For instance, betonline’s match bonus are double that and many of their bonuses are 60x.
Theres plenty to complain about, but when all the admins hear is complaints, and there are complaints like in this thread, legit complaints don’t get as much attention as they deserve.
Also, if you are able to playthrough the bonus 10% of the time, then what you are saying is that every so often, you get up to $500 or $1000 extra that you normally wouldn’t have gotten, right? Damn, i can see why that would make you upset, it’s because you have to pay more alimomy this way, isn’t it? Btw, what is the rule for casino bonuses anyways? What i mean is, does 10% chance of a 100% bonus fall within the regulations? I’ve been away from the online gambling world for a bit, but when i used to play, there were no such regulations. So, this bonus is provided 100% voluntarily, and there’s zero downside in using them since you can forfeit at any time.
Sorry i admit i was sarcastic earlier. I dont understand the reason for complaint.
I received a cs bonus of 420 2 weeks ago at 35x. Got up to 11k withdraw able but cashed out 6500. Its tough to do but it doesnt make sense to not use them! Its free money to gamble with after you lose your initial deposit!! Besides that your chances of receiving a cs bonus are much much greater if all bonuses have been used.
Overall, I agree with what you’ve said. The bonuses offered by Bovada are entirely voluntary and they are under no obligation to provide them to players. Other sites I’ve played at like a different gaming site and a different gaming site have higher casino rollover requirements than here. Generally, they’ve required 30x rollover for the casino bonus and then another 30x rollover when the casino funds have been credited to your “cash” balance - much higher than Bovada. Bovada is also one of the only sites I’ve encountered that allows you to fairly forfeit bonuses to withdraw cash funds. The sites that I mentioned above as well as many others will lock up all funds until rollover requirements have been satisfied with no exceptions.
What I think Bovada gets wrong is their lack of transparency to players with regards to promotional changes as well as their inability/refusal to reward loyalty. I’ve been with Bovada for a while now (HOF level) and I’ve only seen all of their promotions continue to get worse. They’ve increased rollover requirements steadily/dramatically and their communication regarding these changes is abysmal. It’s unfortunate, but they are under no obligation to offer anything. They are a business, and I’m confident they’ve run the numbers and learned that these changes have positively impacted their numbers. Truly, the only way for things to improve is if players change their deposit habits, but that’s clearly not happening based on the numerous threads I’ve read complaining about the site.
One other thing that I forgot to mention - your cash funds are used first. So, only if you lose all of your cash funds will you start playing with bonus funds. Bonus funds simply extend your play time. Of course bonuses are difficult to turn into withdrawable funds but the alternative is having nothing in your account and needing to deposit again to continue playing.
Please note that @Maddie_Bovada edited my post to remove the names of the competitor’s sites I used. The ironic part is that the majority of my post was defending Bovada. I wish that the site/mods were as diligent about fixing issues like live wagering and communicating promotional changes to players as they are about removing the names of competitors. It’s shameful - I work in sales and have no problem recommending a competitor to my client if I think they can better assist. I play across multiple books and social casinos and not one limits our ability to mention other sites.
