Default Littlewoods casino bonus, I busted 1/4 way thru, should i redeposit?

So I've wagered about 250 of the 1000 necessary WR before I busted my 50gbp deposit.

Should I redeposit for the bonus 50 after WR met?

Basically a) can I do that? and b) should I do it if I really bet tilty sometimes at these casino deals?

Also, can I also do the Littlewoods poker bonus, or can I only do one or the other? Should I just do the poker one now?

Id re-deposit and try for the bonus, but that's just me...finished about 20 pounds ahead clearing this one earlier this week. If your prone to tilting though, I might wait a few days before attempting this again, or just wait till next month.

And you can do both the casino and poker bonuses...they're seperate bonuses.

FWIW

Yes, you should redeposit. I had to do it 3 times at Littlewoods this month, but it was the correct play. Think of it this way -- if you don't redeposit, you're saying that a 50 bonus with a 1000 requirement is worth doing, but a 50 bonus with a 750 requirement isn't. That being said, if you can't control yourself and bet within your bankroll, you should abandon the bonus.

What Homer said.

Plus, here's a little info on the level of variance in bonuses like this...I was flat-betting 2P per hand for 5 hands per deal and here were my results at some points:

@ 300P wagered, I was -77P (all amounts pre-bonus)
@ 600P wagered, I was -7P
@ 800P wagered, I was -74P
@ 1000P wagered, I was +6P

It can be super-frustrating when you are running poor. But you just have to accept that there are times when you run super-hot. I had 2 nasty streaks while clearing this bonus...but I also had 2 awesome runs that more than balanced things out.

Thanks everybody, btw, it's not really that I tilt, even though I guess I do, but it's more I'm used to playing these as a sticky type bonus where I bust often but win big sometimes.

With the bonus at the end you just can't play them that way.

Thanks for pointing out I can do the littlewoods poker bonus too.

Just to recap, AFAIK,

Littlewoods, can do casino AND poker bonus,
Intercasino, can only do casino OR poker,
Will Hill, not sure but think only casino OR poker.??

I don't play the ones where technically american players are not allowed so I'm not sure about them.

At Will Hill, you can do both casino and poker.

Also,
UK Betting -- both casino and poker
Total Bet -- both casino and poker

My Will Hill status is pretty funny actually...Despite betting just 2P per hand, I have quickly busted the bonus for 8 straight months. My wager requirement to ever withdraw a bonus now stands at ~1860P. I doubt it will ever actually be +EV for me...but since I don't have to bother with any of my own money, I have a little fun each month for free. Then I go off and whore bonuses where I can actually make money!

If they ever banned me for bonus abuse, I would just about die laughing. I'm not costing them anything...and it would just remove the "need" to play something with no value to me!

Do you have a seperate account setup for each, or do you use one WH account to take advantage of both bonuses?

It doesn't make sense to "stickify" these bonuses. No matter how hard you try, your EV gain is negligible.
