CASINO SIGNUP BONUS CONCEPT COME UNDER SCRUTINY
26th May, 2015 at 07:40:49
New article suggests a signup bonus is now a disadvantage to players
For a long time, the concept of a signup bonus has been used by casinos and gambling operators to attract new players. Over the years however, the offers have become accompanied by more and more restrictive terms.
A new article on the azonlinecasinos.com
examines the current state of the casino signup bonus from a player's perspective and makes the argument that a player is now better off not taking the offer and in many cases is disadvantaged when doing so.
Within the article, the author points out some of the restrictive terms that hinder players: low maximum bets, lists of excluded games, large pre-cashout wagering requirements and more recently the fact that a number of Microgaming operators
have introduced a maximum cashout equating to 6 times the qualifying deposit.
Social media examination of the article has produced mixed reviews with some operators suggesting that it is not accurate and players largely in agreement that avoiding the signup bonus is the best course of action if you want to win.
Whatever the outcome, it is clearly a concept that still divides opinion and the article's title "Funeral of the Signup Bonus", while it may prove to be a little premature, clearly drives home the point that there is a point at which a bonus crosses the line from offering an advantage to a player to a position where the player is more likely to lose their deposit. The article argues that this line was already crossed and some time ago.
