Default non-sticky casino bonus question

if I make $10 bets and bust out w/ my bonus money on a non-sticky bonus should I keep playing or just cash out?

should I deposit more if I lose my initial stake?

It doesn't work that way.

Your deposit is put on top of the bonus, therefor you are wagering your deposit first. If you have 100 + 100 and lose 100 of it, you are now into your bonus money.

If it's a cashable bonus, you will be allowed to cash out the balance only if you met the wager requiremnts.

No. Play until one of these two conditions is met, whichever comes first:
1. You have met the wagering requirement. In this case, cashout whatever you have left.
2. You bust. In this case, say oh well, and don't look back.

I believe there is an exception to this. If the wagering requirement is 10x bonus only (NOT 10x deposit+bonus) it is not a bad idea to make a larger initial deposit. My very 1st attempt at Blackjack whoring had me down to five bucks with a very small amount to go. Had I busted with $1 left to wager that would have been a very unfortunate and unnecessary occurence.

Keep in mind that this was flat betting a buck. I suppose if you are making larger wagers different considerations may apply.

Wrong, that is a bad idea. You're tying up more of your bankroll for a few days without increasing your EV.

Even worse...you are risking more money with no increase in EV. Unless this is a site where you will be back month after month and the wager requirement carries over, this is actually a -EV strategy.

Busting out increases EV. Learn to love it! [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

You know what, I've heard this a lot, and this is the wrong way of looking at it. The fact that youv'e busted out doesn't increase EV, its the fact that you CAN bust out that increases your EV. EV is not results oriented. You should be able to make an EV adjustment based on the fact that you can bust out and not have to complete the wagering requirement without actually busting out. So you get this EV bonus regardless of whether you actually do bust out, just because you can bust out and have a lower WR. I am not good enough at math though to set this equation up.

You're wrong.

When you bust before meeting WR, you reduce the HA because you wagered less.

Less HA = +EV
