Bonus Beating

There are a number of ways to beat bonuses as well as to identify bonuses that can be beaten. You can use some of the relatively simple concepts outlined with the above casinos to determine whether a Bonus is beatable, “Straight up,” which just means that your expected loss of your Deposit + Bonus is sufficient to overcome the House Edge of the best possible game to play

Remember the 4% Rule, as that is going to be an easy shortcut to determine whether a slot bonus is beatable. If there are no slot machines listed for a site that have an RTP of greater than 96%, then it is often safe to assume that is the best return that you are going to get. Having made this assumption, any Bonus with a playthrough of 25x, or greater, has the expected result of losing you entire Deposit + Bonus Funds.

That doesn’t mean those bonuses are bad or not worth taking, they are great for recreational players. After all, all you need is one spin to win and those bonuses give you more chances!

Beyond that, here are some other tips for finding the best casino bonuses and taking advantage of them when you can:

  • Always Know the Terms & Conditions

    Online casinos have all found themselves on the end of differing forms of advantage play, and they usually take it pretty well in stride. As long as the player has played fairly, if there is an exploitable aspect of a certain promotion, the casino will usually take its lumps and change it later on. The online casinos of old know all about this because they were beaten time and time again due to the easily exploitable promotions they would offer with extremely low playthrough requirements.

    Further, casinos offer different bonuses of different types of games that will all have different potential vulnerabilities. The Terms & Conditions are often designed to close those vulnerabilities such that the games cannot be readily beaten.

    While it is certainly not fun to do, at least not as fun as gambling, it’s very important to make sure that you have read and understood the Terms & Conditions for any casino that you might play. LIke we said before, even if it is a Wizard of Odds APPROVED site: If you unquestionably violated the T&C’s, then there really isn’t much we can do for you.

  • Use Our Resources to Your Advantage!

    In order to find recent information on Casino bonuses and speak directly to players who have tried them out, the Forums at LatestCasinoBonuses are an invaluable resource! The players there share information about all of t5he bonuses and most of them have an understanding of the underlying Terms & Conditions. Many of them would be just as qualified as I am, if not more, to answer any questions that you may have. In addition to that, the LCB Forums are often frequented by representatives of the better casinos, who will be able to help you out if you have any problems at all.

    Again, in addition to Wizard’s reviews of the online casinos, LCB contains User Reviews so that you can get impressions from those players who have put their own cash on the line. These players will be able to tell you what the withdrawal practices are for given casinos and are generally willing to help answer any questions you may have. And, again, the casinos representatives are on there pretty regularly. It is important to know how fast the casino pays if you do win, if they employ delayed withdrawal tactics and whether or not casinos employ their T&C’s in good faith, or use them to hide behind to avoid paying, though the player may not have violated any of them.

    Casinos that have done any of these things will be blacklisted, but those who have not quite made the blacklist, or have otherwise escaped our attention (usually because not many people have played there) will have poor reviews amongst our family of sites.
