Bgo is basically deposit £100 get 120 free spins


use free spins

Wager any winnings

Withdraw initial £100 deposit

Wagering is only 20x

That's not the one I got - it was 200% deposit bonus but a CRAZY 40x wagering.

It might be worth calculating the +EV before trying it, but what I've done before is wager all the bonus and hope you get lucky, if not just withdraw back your original deposit. Don't wager your own money trying to chase a win.

That way it's risk free.

Even though it was won on a risk-free offer I still think it makes people itch to throw money at it for a big win!

I'm such a party pooper ;D

you're not thinking about how your matched betting kitty is a BUSINESS

if you gamble you are just taking money out of the business with risk attached to it

what business wants to do that!

That's exactly it

You have to stick to offer and nothing else. Wager exactly £10 and no more. Wager the bonus and NOT your deposit etc. I can see people getting to £0 after the bonus after being up on wins and wanting to chase that and spending all the deposit.

Same for the bets though... people could fail to lay wanting more profit...

Just have to remember if you're gambling there's a good chance you could lose it all! And that's not what the MB business is about

If you gamble you will go off the beaten track as they say

the reason we make money on slots is because MBers stick to risk free or low risk offers

joe public just goes nots and does any old slot and doesn't stand a chance in the long run

I'm not saying that I personally do it myself - I rarely do any non-risk slot offers and treat MB like a business; if I only make £2 from an offer then I bank that £2, I don't keep spinning and gamble it away.

My point was that to many people who do like to gamble or aren't able to stop themselves then I always feel like seeing this big win screenshots is not the healthiest thing as it may promote them to go and have a go with £10 here and there, or whatever. Quite often I see people posting screenshots from wins that they've had when it's just been gambling, and I'm not a fan.

Just seen the top gun offer on Pad and thought I would see who was attempting on here. Lost £25 on the one yesterday.

Might do Bgo first.

Where do you hear about that one? I saw something similar posted on PA the other day by someone, but when the T&C were checked it was an old offer and had run out in November or so iirc.

It's not listed on their main promotions page (or home page) I don't think? Did you find it yourself on the site? Or did someone just give you a link (old offer details might be still online, but only reachable with a direct link).

It seems a little odd because being a promotion you'd expect it to be, well, promoted. If it's a genuine active offer though, sounds like a good 'un!

Jon, do you keep a running tally of how much you're up overall just on slot offers? I know that you'll be up overall (maths, blah blah blah), but it does make me wonder what my figures could potentially look like if I take up every slot offer I see (within reason) because at the minute I tend to only do non risk-free ones where the potential loss is only about £10-£15, and even then I don't do every one.

I'm trying to persuade myself to do more because I've only made about £65 this week and I'm aiming for a target of £500 a month so I'm way off.

Now have a Son in Law, and have become the 'dreaded' Mother in Law. Many congratulations to Hazel and Matt who got married on 10th August, at the Centre for Alternative Technology, Machynlleth, North Wales. It was a fab weekend away and the most unconventional but personal wedding ever!
