    this bonus cracks me up...

    one of the books i use which i wont mention the name(i use to play dogs since they are often generous with them....u can probably figure it out) was advertising a casino bonus for st paddys day weekend

    Bonus plus chip purchase amount is subject to a 40x rollover requirement in the Casino before the chip purchase and bonus amount can be withdrawn.
    lol...so lets say u entered the code for the 100% bonus and put in 20 bucks to play blackjack.....40 bucks x 40x rollover...lolol...1600 bucks....like youd ever have a prayer....

    Bookmaker had a 84x rollover this past December and I was able to do but 5dimes has a casino bonus now that is 100x. It's impossible to complete.

    Actually, Bovada's casino bonuses are great.

    I did the one you mentioned today (100% bonus up to $100. $8,000 rollover). I'm only 400 dollars and change away from redeeming it.

    The casino bonuses they offer are always worth it and it's your mistake if you're not taking advantage.

    What casino game do you play to meet the rollover?

    I should also mention I've done every single one I could (only recent ones I missed was "secret Tuesday" where you can only redeem a code on Tuesday, and I still hadn't completed a previous rollover, so I couldn't do the code. I redeemed it the first week and then missed the next two) and have come out ahead.

    It's clearly +EV, because while casino play is obviously -EV, when you combine the bonus you get along with the fact that they comp you for losses (at least $50 in losses=comp) and handle (at least $5,000 in handle=comp), AND the other promos going on rewarding casino play (see the trip to Mexico promo, where you can earn entries and cash back by playing slots and other games), it comes out hugely in your favor.

    I remember a couple years ago I played online casinos a bit that all had like 100%-400% bonuses with huge roll overs that I thought her impossible too. Playing slots though you go through the rollover really quick. I got hooked when depositing like $100 the first time I got the balance up to like $2000 and was done with the rollover. My dumb ass lost all of it back. Out of the 2 months I played, I cashed out like $500 once and it took like 6 weeks to get it.

    Even if some make the rollover, they count on you getting hooked and eventually losing it all. Some who have control and some luck actually can make it pay.

    Exactly.

    Obviously if you get hooked and keep playing after completing rollover, then it's -EV, but someone with control will make a profit off of Bovada's casino promos.

    yis....sounds like you spend alot more time in online casinos than me...and understand everything alot more than i do....and if you can make it work thats awesome

    but like i said...if i had 40 bucks in the casino and had to meet a rollover of 1600....i would never make that....ive never played the slots or anything like that....and you obviously know more than i do about it....but that would be impossible i think...for most anyway

    The best way to play bonuses like this is to bet the max until you lose it or reach an amount that means something to you. Then grind the rest of the rollover down. If you bust you don't have to play the rollover and have maximized your EV. Up $1400 on all the casino bonuses bodog has been giving the last 2 weeks (obviously running hot).

    I do my grinding while running on the treadmill.

    bobby, you shouldn't be doing 40 bucks anyway. You should buy in for the max if they're giving a bonus of over 50%, even with the high rollover.

    question for yisman

    I deposited 100 in bovada and my total blackjack bets were around 4800. I was informed the handle action bonus was 5000 like you stated as well. what is the bonus for 5k in action?

    I think they give you $5 for every $5000 in handle.

    I had about $23,000 in handle and they gave me about $23.

    They also comp for losses of at least $50 (loss of 50 would mean a $5 comp).

    bovada handle action

    thanks yisman i figured the handle action was a joke, but the 10% cashback on losses I certainly can't bitch about.

    yeah handle you don't get much, but consider that you could make several hundred dollars on them and you still get a comp.

    Here was the e-mail I got after asking:

    Thanks for contacting Bovada Casino Customer Service.

    We appreciate the opportunity to assist you with this concern. We are sure that we can help you with this.

    Upon review of your account for this comp period, we are showing that you currently have a total of $22,806.54 in handles and up in the Casino by $158.09.

    I tried to get 5dimes march bonus and get this. They told me I had to re-deposit the equivalent of all my winnings that I cashed out this year and only then could they give me the bonus. What a joke.

    5 dimes doesn't have any promos really.

    I saw that stupid thing they're trumpeting on the front page and it's a crappy promo.

    You have to deposit and the rollover is insane considering that it's not that good an offer.

    one of the books i use which i wont mention the name(i use to play dogs since they are often generous with them....u can probably figure it out) was advertising a casino bonus for st paddys day weekend

    Bonus plus chip purchase amount is subject to a 40x rollover requirement in the Casino before the chip purchase and bonus amount can be withdrawn.
    lol...so lets say u entered the code for the 100% bonus and put in 20 bucks to play blackjack.....40 bucks x 40x rollover...lolol...1600 bucks....like youd ever have a prayer....

    guy is sqaure as they come and thinks he's sharp..and thinks wwf pro wrestling is real

    40x cashable blackjack bonuses are +EV I've made thousands off them. They are dam near impossible to find anymore for that very reason..not everyone is a stupid degenerate.

    I saw that stupid thing they're trumpeting on the front page and it's a crappy promo.

    You have to deposit and the rollover is insane considering that it's not that good an offer.
    The rollover isn't the problem. Let's say that you are up $2k for the year with them you have to deposit $2k and anything you deposit after that can qualify for the bonus. In other words you have to be down money for the year with them.

    Most consider the reduced juice to be the best promo 5dimes has, I think if you get any bonus they remove your reduced juice permanently.
