Great post. I suffered first hand from this bonus - i was offered a 200x upto £200 as an affiliate with wagering attached ( i believe 35x but i will have to double check) When setting up to promote the casino i asked all of the t&c's and was this just explained by writing over Skype. The conditions that were explained to me in Skype seemed perfectly reasonable so i decided to give it a trial. (Just to add at no point when asking about the t&cs was the £2000 max cashout mentioned, pretty big thing to miss-out)
I deposited £100 claimed £200 bonus and had a huge hit on Zeus where i won over 6k. This is where it becomes really weird and complicated - The very next thing i had a message on skype from my contact at jo reels who was just so monitoring my account - he congratulated me on the insane win and at the time when only 5% wagering was done said shame you have wagering you will have to give all that balance back but at least you can make some good content.
I thought this was really odd, I have never ever had a casino i promote affiliate manager instantly congratulate me for the mega win to then say shame you are going to have to lose it all.
Anyway I carried on playing when only 1% wagering was left i had £6.9k balance. Completed wagering and all over a sudden £4.9k went missing. I instantly messaged on chat support and spoke to my contact who explained that all bonuses with Jo-Reels have a 2k cashout. I felt physically sick like i have just been robbed as as at no point was this ever mentioned to me.
I no there is a major part of due-diligence on my behalf as i should of properly read all of the T&C's as i have done with all of the other casinos i promote but i took my contacts word of mouth without thoroughly reading through every part of the T&Cs but i do feel that he should of told me about this clause from the beginning when asking about the bonus terms. Why would i deposit £100 to only win max 20x my deposit back, this is very poor return when play high volatility slots. Additionally as a streamer i can deposit upto £1000 a day. I am only playing high volatility slots to get the insane wins. With this max cashout clause it makes majority of the most played slots pointless.
Following on from this I made the decision about a week ago to withdraw Jo-Reels casino from my channel as i don't believe these terms are good for anyone who want to take the bonus. I am no longer playing at the casino after this incident and have started to remove links from my channel. I have been promoting them for a very short time and have actually had no sign-ups. I just want to point out that i don't think Jo-Reels is a poor casino, choice of games and withdrawal times are great, however if you do decide to play there never take the bonus offer you will end up feeling sick and robbed.
