I just installed little woods poker and deposited 100, I looke in the promotion section of the cashier and it says i have two 25 bonuses to clear but they seem like casino bonuses to me. If i play 250 hands will it clear these? And if i then go to littlewoods casino and play 500 worth will i get a further 25? How does the littlewood system work?

If memory serves, the littlewoods bonus will clear when you play the minimum hands but it won't show up on that bonus thing. You can then go to the casino and deposit some money there to get your 25lb first deposit bonus and your 25 monthly playing BJ.

so the two 25 bonuses that showed up when i first deposited in poker are actually my casino bonuses and the poker bonus is separate from these two.

Yes. I recently signed up too. When you play the requisite number of hands your account will be credited with the 25lbs. However, it will not show up as a seperate entry on your statement (I emailed them and they said it had been credited and gave me the date, I didn't track my buy in's vs. cash outs so I didn't know if I had been credited).

I haven't done the casino thing yet. Can you use those bonuses to gamble at the casino and not risk your own money? I really don't want to nickle and dime at blackjack or some other casino game and drop cash due to expected variance even if it's + expectation with the bonus. I mean if you deposit 50 lbs are you guarenteed to walk away with the bonus money and not drop your 50 lbs due to variance?

Yes, you can use their money. Just make sure you never go below the amount you deposit in the Casino. Write down your deposit amount before you play and make sure you don't go below it. Go to http://wizardofodds.com/ and get the basic strategy. I was playing with $5 bets and got lucky but that's probably not too smart if you want to make sure you don't waste the free money they give you. I'd say do $1-2 bets to be more certain you'll get your lbs back.

PokerTracker works with the Crypto's or if you don't use PT, you can download CryptoCounter (http://www.cryptocounter.com/) for free. Either way you can tell if you've played the correct number of hands and also what your balance sans bonus should be for determining if you should and if you did get paid for the month.

I didn't think I could use PT to track it because I play at multiple crypto sites.

Is there a way to screen for a cerain site?

And what's up with PT just tracking in Dollars, not euro's or pounds? In my databases the pounds get logged in as dollars so although the BB/100 is accurate, the $ won is not as the pounds are worth almost twice as much as the dollars.

You can temporarily separate your aliases and check your stats for your handle on just the single Crypto site you're interested in.

Also, PT will only track in dollars, but it does know that you are playing in pounds/ euros/ whatever. Enter the appropriate exchange rate in the options menu so your stats are correct.

Clear the bonus in the casino; Blackjack (and pontoon) is allowed, and the WR is very low... more +ev$/hr than clearing the bonus by playing poker.

Thanks for the encouragement and info on the casino. I just cleared the sign up bonus plus the sept bonus PLUS I went on a MAD RUSH at blackjack towards the end of working off the bonuses so wound up ahead 37 pounds on top of the 50 pounds in bonuses! sweet!

I agree with what WordWhiz said. Also, as long as you aren't playing at multiple crypto's at the same time, you can just go to the Session Notes tab and count hands for the sessions you just played.

Just a word of advice to anybody signing up for littlewoods. make sure you write the account number down. You will need it when you sign in the first time. no emails and support appears to be a figure of someones imagination.

The Crypto sites use a state-of-the-art quantum random number generator to determine whether you will receive any particular email from them. With the degree of randomness they've displayed in their email communication, I never have any fear of someone guessing the turn or river.
