View Full Version : Would someone mind checking these two casino bonuses over for me?

I'm actually doing these for a referral site, so no matter what it is +EV for me to do these as I'm not even concerned about winning money from the site (unless I run goot).

Ok, number 1:

www.blackjackballroom.com (Blackjack Ballroom)

I have to deposit $300 and wager at least $750. Obviously the blackjack bonus is impossible to clear (60x) and video poker is 30x so I'm thinking of just flat betting a dollar or two and cashing out this one. Should be no problems, right? That one was easy.

Now, the second.

www.casinotropez.com (Casino Tropez)

For this I have to deposit at least $100 and wager at least $1,000. Their bonus is a 100% match up to $100. Obviously I'll deposit the $100. This is a sticky bonus in which you have to wager $1600. I'm not sure what my play is here. I might just flat bet real small to make sure I wager $1000 and then bet large to try and win some dough. Is this a bad play?

Assume that time isn't much of a factor here. /images/graemlins/smile.gif Christmas break is coming very, very quickly.

Thanks!

I'm not a pro, so I won't attempt to give you a specific strategy, but I would reconsider your sticky bonus strategy as I'm pretty sure the "correct" way of doing these involves big bets up front (with a high potential of busting out, but +EV across several sticky bonuses). If this is the only sticky bonus you're doing, I wouldn't suggest even attempting it.

You cannot cashout the bonus. You are essentially using it to try and aggressively go for a big win.

(simplified) example:
Deposit $100 and get a $200 bonus ($300 in account)
Bet $300 (and win) on a 1:1 situation ($600 in account)
Cashout, $200 is subtracted, so cashing out $400

End result, payed off 1:3 on a 1:1 bet.

If you are really interested in "whoring" casinos, you should visit www.onlineblackjackguide.com. (http://www.onlineblackjackguide.com.) This website lists the most reperable casinos with the best bonuses. My suggestion is to first play Casino On Net, Star Luck, and Planet Luck. Another suggestion is Intercasino b/c of their monthy reload bonus. Then move on to the sticky bonuses if you want, but with higher risk. Despite this, you are statistically favored. Golden Palace and Grand Online Casino have the best stickies. I hope this helps.
