RoyalPanda showing it's LeoVegas side with a scam "bonus" for you!
Aaah, new game - new promotions and competitions at CasinoGrounds. Let's try out Royal Panda again.
Oh, they have a 50% deposit promotion running, "Summer Bonanza" - Bamboo Bonus. Turns out they will give you these every friday forward!!
So I make a small deposit, choose to use the 50% Summer Bonanza bonus to test out the new release from REELPlay
(CG Competition/Giveaway LV/RP)
I play some, no luck. Hit the bonus balance - get down to € 25 -ish.. Was sure it was rip.. Hit a good 600x on (lol) Show Master.. Feels good..
I continue playing. Thinking about how Royal Panda can be under LeoVegas and offer me a 50% bonus every weekend, when LeoVegas makes you wager with your own money to potentially unlock their (non-wager) bonus money. Sick!
I check the wagering; 14.39%. Fine.
I continue next day, 110x, 39x on Book of Dead, hit a nice 324x in base game on Gorilla Kingdom. I check the wagering, it's still on 14.39%
Time to check what's going on. Norwegian version: "and they must be used in games with bets with kontanter => "physical form of money" (Kontanter <=> can obviously be translated from Cash. It should probably just have said Cash balance/Cash saldo or Ekte Penger vs Bonus Penger, as the word kontanter isn't used anywere else on the site, or simply stick with the English version of the terms, as those words Cash balance and Bonus balance is used on the site too).
The english version makes it pretty clear. "wagering requirement (..) must be met with CASH BALANCE bets" (Royal Panda's "Real Money balance" is called Cash)
Below is the __general terms__ for their promotions (Norwegian and English version).
Ah, so this is what's going to pwn me.
Okay, so how do you guys feel about it?
Is a deposit bonus, where if you hit the bonus money you're basically at 0 - a bonus that benefits the player?
You deposit 100 euro and take the 50% => +50 Euro. 35x wagering
150 euro "balance" in games.
You lose your 100, and start at bonus money. 50 euro.
50 * 35 = 1750 euro to wager
(bla bla bla, you maybe hit a 300x on 0.60 - making you 210)
but even if you hit some, and want to continue playing and wager it (or potentially lose it all) you can't win this money - unless you again make a deposit with real money and start wagering the 1750 with your NEW deposit (or ofc potentially lose it all).
Even the scummiest of Curaçao casinos let's you wager with the bonus money. The f is this?
