What is the best method of clearing a bonus at INtercasino? I am currently playing Pontoon, I have no idea how many how hands I need to clear for the bonus to be transfered to me.

I play blackjack and 500 hands betting $5 will does it for me. You have to wager 25X the bonus amount and it helps to keep track of the amount wagered yourself.

There is a log viewer (when you click on the "games" tab it will be there) and you can track to make sure you hit the required 25x bonus

BTW, did you see that pic I posted of a dapper gentleman I imagine dressed not too much unlike yourself in that thread about Arizona cardrooms?

The log viewer isn't great since it doesn't calculate splits and doubles for you. I use the comp page; 1 comp point for 10 units bet in pontoon. I don't play blackjack, but it would be easy enough to figure out if it is the same for that game.

I open windows calculator, type in 5+ and then you just need to click the equals button at the start of each hand and each time you double or split. Quick and easy WR tracker!

Ehh, I don't even keep track there anymore. Every so often I'll go to the cashier and see if my withdrawable amount has increased to match my balance. It results in me going over the WR by ~$500 or so sometimes, but that's about $2-3 in lost EV. No big deal and it saves some headaches.

When it "feels like" I should be getting close, I call the cust service # and ask them how much more I have to go then count wagers from that point... /images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Sort of an unrelated ? but I figured Id stick it in here rather than make ANOTHER crypto post. I deposited $100 to get $100 this month and was playing $2 BJ and running HORRIBLE. Right now Im back down to my original $100 with probably close to $800 left to wager. Would the best strategy be to wait till next month and clear everything then (hoping to actually run good at SOME POINT) or to just keep playing now with my $100 to "clear" the WR requirement (while probably losing $ in the process).

From a pure EV standpoint, I don't think it matters at all whether you play the hands now or next month, as long as you are sure you are going to play next month.

Personally, I would go ahead and clear it now, so I didn't get into the habit of letting a big WR build up.

Yes it does; look one column to the right.

I would swear on my life that column didn't exist when I last played.

That's good advice since IC will ban you if you "risk free" them too much.

Hey I just made my deposit for August and now my withdrawable balance is larger than my actual balance. I think I saw this mentioned before but what exactly does it mean, do i not have to play the WR now?

Heres how it went down:

Balance = $270
Withdrawal Limit = $270

I deposit $100

Balance = $470
Withdrawal Limit= $560

Ive busted out the last three months so I thought I would have a big built up WR to clear but the opposite seems to be the case here....I mean, Ill take it, but its all very confusing. Anyone know whats up?

I've busted out 2 months in a row now on blackjack. Both times I ran up to $140 before busting. It's very difficult to gamble 25X on a $100 bonus bankroll.
Does this plan sound like it would work next month or is it possible the way the system is set up?
1) I deposit the $100 but don't take it out.
2) I play Blackjack and if make a $40 profit, I withdraw my $100 + the $40 profit, making sure not to dip into my real money.
3) I then play the $100 bonus and try to gamble 25X.
thanks-

That's a great idea, thanks for sharing! I have been counting wiht a deck of cards since i started (took 2 cards out, one of them being a ten, and go through the deck 10 times uncovering one symbol on the ten each time to know how far i am).

Glad I did the casino instead of the poker. I played on just the $100 bonus money and cashed out at $309.70

Dam... I had 2 months of bonuses to clear, and I cashed out $96. Pontoon is fun!

Are there other Crypto casinos that are worth whoring monthly playing pontoon? Excuse my ignorance if this is commonly discussed, I'm kinda clueless in the casino whoring world.

Last I lost the bonus before clearing the WR, how do I check how much extra in WR I have this month?
