View Full Version : How do you keep track of amount wagered for a casino bonus?

12-04-2005, 07:42 PM
I'm just getting into the casino bonus side of things and am working off my first bonus playing blackjack. I need to wager $1600 to get my $100 bonus (at Starluck) and the suggestions I've seen at CasinoWhoring.com for keeping track of the amount wagered involve me manually counting it out myself. /images/graemlins/tongue.gif Is there nothing available through the casino? What do you guys do?

I keep track manually. I use my left hand as a tracker while my right hand does the betting. For each bet (including doubles/splits), I tick off a finger. After 5 ticks, I make a mark on paper... If I am betting $5/hand, one tick on the paper is $25.

A better option if I ever get around to buying one would be to get a clicker-counter. Then every bet would be one click...and I just have to know how many clicks I want to play...

A lot of casinos offer comp points based on amount wagered. You should look into that for each one. For those that don't, I use coins into a jar to count bets.

Edit - i never got the starluck/planetluck comp things to work, but i know they (at least nominally) offer one.

I count to 100 bets in my head as I play, then write down 100*bet size (say $1000 if I'm betting $10/hand) and start over.

Other answers...

- Use a pen and paper
- Use windows calculator (or a regular scientific calc)
- Use comp/vip/cashback points (if you get 1 point for every $10 wagered, then your points*10 is amount wagered)
- Ask support (worst option)
- Try to cashout and see if it goes through

I've just starting whoring the *luck casinos myself. Is there any disadvantage to linking your Planet and Starluck accounts? For example: receiving fewer offers, etc.

Windows calculator is so much easier than the methods listed. Say you are wagering 2 dollars a hand a BJ. Just enter 2+2=4. Then play your first two hands. After words, just his equals every time the cards are being dealt out. It will add 2 each time.

Take out 100 playing cards.

After each bet drop the appropriate number of cards into a box.

Rinse and repeat every 100 cards.

Click "contact us" and you can ask a live operator in a chat window. It only takes about a minute.

I downloaded casino count for the ones that don't keep track. That's pretty easy. Do a search for that in the archives and you should find it.

I did a search in the archieves, but came up empty handed. Can anyone provide a link for Casino Count please?

Pretty please??
