How can live football not be a live bet ?? I had 7 bets $1 each above 1.5 only needed 5 but fancied two extra lost on the day and failed to move from 0/5 on the challenge so screen shot and fired it off to support. 

Boycotting the tables till it's sorted out

Its betting in-play m8.  888 calls it live betting which is as I mentioned in earlier post very open to this kind of mis-understanding so I appeal to the mods again to forward this suggestion to support.  Please change the wording from live to in-play.  Thats 3 ppl involved in this thread I think now who have got stung by this and I bet there are many more who dont post here getting caught.


My latest challenge is bet $500 in casino again.  Thats 2 or 3 times now.  Pure comedy.  Good thing is I only have less than 2hrs to wait and hope its a poker related one.

Cheers John 

I woke up to the support reply saying the same thing, no more dabbling on 4k fortune then for me, I lost money doing something that I didn't want to do in the first place. even the play now button didn't take you to the in play section just 888 sports main site. 

it's me not you thus I'm withdrawing some funds today in protest. shares will fall and maybe crash the exchange :-) (actually nobody will care like most things in life) 

today is a good old get in the money for 1 9man tourny (I can feel that $1 entering my account soon)

i like that the "play now" button and the "fortune trail" logo covers what my challenge is so i can not tell what my challenge is... pay 10 hands of something...?
Flag john (DENick} January 8, 2018 12:26 PM GMT
as these ridiculous challenges are a blatant attack on your bankroll, ie the bigger your roll the higher your challenge, i suggest temporarily hiding your roll just before your new challenge.withdraw nearly all your funds get the challenge then reverse the withdrawal.

I personally think you are .....searching for the right words here..... "trying too hard" "feeling you have to do them" not quite sure what phrase I am looking for but I can explain what I mean by simply saying that you do not "have" to complete your challenges, it is a free bonus offer you can do or not and there will be a new bonus to complete soon if you do not like the one offered that day. On the whole, I am guessing the promo is very popular.

I chose not to try to complete mine as there is easier cash to be made for me playing a few cash tables over the month or even in a few blast games for an hour.

It is always a personal thing if you fancy trying for the possible big bucks payout at the end of the promotion then great if like me you prefer small regular wins then we all have that choice.


Your money your choice probably sums it up Wink

But please don't moan if you don't like how it rolls Sealed

I e-mailed support politely asking them to change the wording of the sports betting challenge from live betting to in-play betting to avoid the confusion that is clearly catching people out.  Below is a snippit from their response.


"However, live betting is the ability to bet on sporting events as they happen, we understand that this may not be clear for some members but it is stated in the terms what types on challenges will be included.

Unfortunately, promotion challenges will not be changed at this time."



Wow is it such a big deal to change 2 words?  They even admit that people are getting confused.  Change it to in-play as its impossible to confuse which bet that is.  My confidence in 888 has been badly shook over the last 6 months and this has done nothing to help it.  Shinyone if you are still here m8,  you have mentioned it several times already about 888 not listening or not caring what we say and all I can say is that response from 888 prooves everything you have been saying.


I am going to go one step further and say that this could be interpreted as deliberate on 888s part to profit from the confusion.  I am not accusing 888, I am just saying how this could look.  It does not make logical sense to not fix such a simple issue.


Why do ye run these promos to encourage players to play and then treat us like kids?.

Flag cryptic3(888mod) January 10, 2018 9:23 AM GMT
Isn't there a live betting tab in the sports lobby?  Surely if the promo says live betting any bets placed from that tab will be the ones that count?

Hello Cryptic,  Yes there is but what happens is when players see the challenge they assume its bet at any time on a live sport.  They just go to sporstsbook and place a bet and think that is it, challenge done.  I got my answer from 888, I dont agree with it but I have to accept so Im moving on.  I hope others read this thread before placing a bet and at least it will save some people from making this mistake. 


Just for the record I dont bet on sports, I only got involved in this to improve the service.

Hi m888s,

I have just read through this thread and before I address the issues you have highlighted, I just want to take the time to wish you all a VERY HAPPY, HEALTHY and SUCCESSFUL NEW YEAR! A bit late (maybe); but the sentiments remain all the same!

Thanks for taking the time to post your feedback here and know that I will be monitoring this thread moving forward.

1. This promotion does not at all depend on your bankroll. Unlike some of our promotions in the past, these challenges are not personal; hence the values and the type of challenge vary daily.

2. Casino and sport are integral parts of the 888poker offering; therefore we reserve the right to include them in our promotions.

3. The promotion is set up in such a way that if you do not wish to participate in the sports and/or casino challenge, then the next day you will receive a challenge that may be more suitable for you.

4. The difficulty of the challenges also vary - there are three daily challenges and each gets progressively more challenging. If a challenge may be too hard for you to complete, then simply wait for the next challenge the next day - it will come and it may be more suitable for you. Smile

5. When someone is asked to "bet $500" in the casino, it does not mean that the person will lose $500 in the casino. Having a play-through requirement is an incentive to encourage casino play and you can see your prize in the corresponding chest. If luck permits, small bets add up and you can complete these types of challenges easily.

6. The suggestion about  the term "Live Sports" versus "In-play" is a very good one and it will be taken on board for the next promotion of this type. Apologies if the idea, initially, was not well received by our Support Representative.

I think I have addressed everything; but if I missed something, please repost/highlight and I'll do my best to get to it ASAP. Again, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us and the wider 888poker community!

Good luck in life and at the tables all!

Happy New year Sean.
Like the rest of you, after betting on the horse races realised I needed to bet whilst in play. So put my money on some football game that was in play.  This challenge did not register either!  So I have given up with any sport betting.

AND Chris, its not about trying too hard.  The promotion has the "opportunity" to win up to 250,000 dollars.  Who would not want to have the possibility of finding this in their last treasure chest?  For almost all of us playing this its a life changing amount of money.  I would be playing in the tournaments with a thousand dollar by ins, if I won that sort of money!  And by offering that sort of money as a prize, the majority of players will try to make their challenges in order to have a shot at the big prize!  But then 888 know this, and it is encouraging irresponsible gambling for those that have a problem, or desperately want to win "big"  Not on the poker playing because those are small challenges.  BUT 500 in the casino, or win 70 dollars from live play?

John take Jen's advice on the casino.  I had to bet 100 dollars.  So I put 20 on black and 20 on red x 5 spins, challenge completed without actually losing any money.  However with the possibility of the green 0 coming up you could also lose. Yesterday I decided to only play the poker challenges. If I only manage two challenges per day I will still make the final 100 with the amount of days left.

Good luck to you all, and I really hope that a forum ,member wins the "big prize"  If I do, I promise I will have a private tournament  for the regs and offer 5000 as prize money,

I agree Rhonda who wouldnt want a chance at winning 250k. I think this must be small change for Chris but to others it could change there lives if they won the big one.

Level 46 for me - today's first challenge was to make it to the money in 1 tournament ($1 sit'n'go - 2nd, job done), second challenge was $10 on live(in-play) sports bets (thanks Sean for getting that changed), made 80c by dutching a British lad playing against the no1 seed in one of the lower level ITF tennis events, final challenge is to win 50 cash hands (just as well it's Sunday ) - will get onto that after lunch.

Tip (in case you hadn't already realised) for the "make it to showdown" - this works if any hand on your table goes to showdown even if you've already folded. At least it does in Snap games, not sure about regular tables.

My chests so far have mostly had the minimum prize, but did get $2 from a red one. Will let you know how I do on the 50th.

My Missions so far:

21 x poker (if blast and flopo is Poker Sealed)
vs
4 x $500 Casino Bet
1 x $150 Casino Bet
6 x $100 Casino/Sport Bet/Win
3 x $25 Casino Bet
4 x $20 Casino/Sport Bet
1 x $10 Casino Bet
-------
(17) ($2915) 

A normal poker promotion gives advantage to provider by increased player acticity and gives advantage to players by given back a bit of the additionally generated rake. I would call that a fair win-win situation.

This promotion gives double advantage to provider and disadvantage to players who participate. I would call that anti marketing to all poker players who know basics about odds (i guess most players). 888 wanted me to lose $4,63 in average for each casino/sport challange (1/37 lose, which is even not enough for sports). Based on my missions so far projected to 100 missions (44,7 x Casino/Sport) that woud be a sum of $207 losing in Casino/Sport.

Absolutely right, all of us have ignored some, as like John and I guess a lot of others there is no way they will make the final chest of 100.  I mostly have done two challenges a day, as the poker ones are not any issues.  I found the sports bets and the casino ones not something I would usually attempt.  But of course as I discovered in Live play if you bet the same amount on all three results, draw win or lose you would make the challenge and at worst maybe a dollar down.  The casino one is easy, because you put 1 dollar on red and 1 dollar on black, until you have played the required times or the required amount of money. This now sees me on level 63.  If I only now play 2 challenges per day going forward there is no reason I wont get to open chest 100.  And as I have mostly just been doing the challenges I have been fortunate enough to have increased my bank roll at the same time by over 150 dollars

i started late into this promotion but did every day all 3 challenges and i just made it to step 89(i missed one because i came home to late to win 50 hands at cashgames). all my poker quests have been easy to do, same with the sports betting(i do daily anyways). my casino quests always have been the same, to bet 70$ on live/casino, i did it always on black jack and didnt loose any bucks because i had a 50$ freeplay to start with lol. of course i think its shit by 888 to try to get pokerplayers to get involved with casino or sports-betting with no clue what they are doing. normaly i dont play any casino games after i lost a bigger chunk many years agon when i was drunk :) ... oohh, i said my pokerquest have been easy all, thats kind of right, but the blast games are still the biggest ripoff's overall. i always had to win 4 games at level 1$, once i needed 36 games to do that(lucky that only was once), once i only needed 10 games, but if its always staying at 2$ you are loosing money that way, too. in my case it was at around 80% 2$, 19,9% 5$ and 2 times the spin made it to 10$. that arent the odds they should lol. on my way to level 89 so far i won 18$ in bonus, on the daily spins i won 2 lucky chips and a 10c blast lol. now i am waiting for the challenges to restart again and even if i think that this promotion is only another thingy to get a grip to the money of their custommers i will try to make it to level 100. .... and if i would hit the jackpot of this promotion(or on crappy blast games) i would be a happy guy of course ;)   gl to all you forumers

rhonda, i won all needed games with 18 players on sit&go(36 or 40 players), should be easy for you aswell

Gl Zock, I have struggled so much to cash in five games with buys ins of more than 3 dollars.  As i am writing this, I just need to cash in 1 more.  Wish me luck, I am currently sat in the money position on a turbo deepstack.  There are only 93 runners left with 45 players paid.  A lot can still happen!

i only had to win 3 times with 3$, i started last night with a "late registration"-game, won few bucks in that but it doesnt count because it started before the timeperiod(88 rules lol), at same time i did a sit&go and won. today i thouht its easy to win 2 more games but my aces got cracket every time, sometimes in first hand(like you said earlier). at end i decided to play late "rego" games instead and made it. now i closed STUPID 888 because i have to win 150 cash hands, normaly easy but if forced to do during 2 hours, who knows lol. if 888 wants players to close the poker here there would be easier ways,...., just send email lol.  i will do them tomorow, no more any games on 888 for today because they are trying to rip peeps of their money this way. rant over, gl Rhonda ;)

I am trying to complete level 96 ! Must win 250 hands in cash games  91 was to wager 500 dollars in the casino. Had to then win 150 hands in cash games. Had to win 10 x 5 dollar blast games, that was actually quite easy I think I actually only played around 14 games so this challenge saw me massively increase my bank roll, won 3 lots of 30 dollars. Good job too, as my last challenge wasto play in 25 tournaments with a minimum of 5 dollar buy ins! And just a thought ZOCK this challenge is encouraging irresponsible gambling. The carrot of 240,000 dollars and having to spend fortunes on tournaments and no doubt the live sports betting challenge will be around 200 dollars! Small bank roll players would have to deposit some serious money in order to get these challenges completed! i fear I will get to 99 and then 100 will be an impossible final challenge!!!

we all know that 888 is not like in earlier times, same as this forum btw,....., anyways , my thingy is to bet 500$ in casino, i dont know if i want to do that atm, i am thinking about what maybe comes next. the only diffficult would be blast for me, blast is the top of rip off in my opinion.  i hope many of you are running away to hit other sites to play "POKER" instead of getting ripped of by 888. to be honest i hope that at some time any authority will put the finger in the ass of 888 for "playing not responsible". at the end i have to say that i started earlier times on 888 and with this forum and was happy to meet some new friends all over the world with 888(i dont know how often i came to the isle ;)  ... atm we have a forum-boss(i know he is normaly a nice guy),  he posts once a year, we have another mod for doing the "betting" and at op top of all we have my m888 chris, promoting every shit that comes by 888, hmm. oki, i havent forgot Ken, who run the best of all games at forum,.., the morning league eaarlier times, and D of course, running modhunt like a clock. btw i know that D(handbagg-lady) loves, poker, when i am watching any games at forum i see she is in kindly any forum-game. omg,of course i cant miss Oonagh of course, niced witch all over the world, never saw a woman that tried to help peeps, always friendly to all folks, ...., best of all. i hope she will be back when everything is sorted out huggs by friend, Ooonagh

And today I have been beat by every ridiculous hand you can think of, so trying o win 250 cash hands is going extremely slowly. Aces got beat by q3 who made a full house on the river, despite me pushing all in pre flop! Who calls Q  3 pre flop for 18 dollars? trip 5's got beat to a flush hunter, and of course the river obliged him with his 8 3 ! It's almost like it's been designed not to let you win, especially as I am 4 steps away from the 100 chest! Can only say thank goodness I am not back at work til Monday, so at least I have the time to attempt the final challenges. It would not be possible to do the final ones, if you worked!!!!!   And of course this challenge is being completed by many whpo have to win, so it is encouraging extreme donkey play when everyone is massivley raising pre flop and chasing all the way to the river in order to hit anything to try to make their challenge.  Still have to win a hundred hands out of my 250  :(

thx for the info, Rhonda, i was thinking today if i should stop this challenge because i had to bet 500$ in live-casino, but thought that i am gone so far that i should give it a try, still knowing the % of my losses(well done again to 888 tricking peeps into games they dont want to play lol). anyways i did, and by loosing 5$ i was safe to not loose more i did it. i hate playing games when i know i am not in front :)  ... next was to play blast games, the sickest variation of poker i ever learned tbh, why are players not playing the national lottery instead!? i dondt know. maybe thats once again 888 trying to get peeps involved into stupid games(peeps that normaly are trying to play some serious poker without 3 hours late registration and unlimited rebuys). even knowing that i cant beat the special "888-odds" in this game i did them. once again i saw that the games given to me have been shit, ... oki, i had to win 10 games with a buyin of 5$ only, i played 28 games to make it, 18 times it rolled to 10$, 10 times it rolled to 25$, overall i won 5$ bucks in this challenge only because i only needed 28 games(40 would be averrage). come on 888, during all my blast games during this challenge you never ever hit nearly the % given in tearms and conditions!? ... and to all poker players around here, if there isnt any challenge like this atm,..., stop playing blast, play sit&go instead and the $$$ you save(the rake 888 is taking for these **** games is sick) put in national lottery, that will save you many bucks and you will still have some dimes for ciggis and a beer ;)

Well Rhonda glad you got there! But then for 888 to insult you with $50 is beyond a joke! This sort of bullshit is why I will never put another cent on 888 of my own money. Play what ever freerolls when ever and will play any cash won that way. 888 poker has just like all the other sites taken second place to the casino side, where players there get to play the poker rewards program as their bonus levels climb. Hence you then get them playing other poker games and just gambling. Like I've read in other places how poker players just don't trust the sites so much now and after 11+ years playing online I can't take any site seriously amymore.

my 96th level was to win 250 hands, wasnt as difficult than i thought. now my challenge on level 97 is:
Place bets in Casino Requires Players to place a specified amount of bets in casino games as detailed in the Fortune Trail map, with a minimum bet as specified in the Challenge.
ealier levels i did them with black jack,..., now i wanted to start with roulette. they want me to place 200bets with a minimum of 5$ each. on black jack its simple to understand that every bet of 5$ will get you a step up. but now with roulette its different, if i put a bet for example on red, even and low, with each 5$ it only counts still one step. so in that case i bet 15$ instead of 5$(black jack), kind of a joke in my opinion. and all these crappy rules given are more difficult to understand if you only read the german translation like when it wasnt clear what is realy meant by livebetting (in german version you cant understand that, at least not me)lol. another point was when i needed to place in the money in tournaments and did it with late registration, what can i say, i made it to the money, only to see next morning they didnt count because the tournaments started before the new day(challenge) started. thats difficult to understand, isnt it!?
anyways, after i made it that far i will try of course to make it to 100, even if i am same opinion like rhonda, thinking that 888 is supporting some kind of  irresponsible gambling in these promotions.
2 rhonda, sorry to hear you only got 50$ bucks, i think most of us will end that way but we all still dream of the jackpot :)
Flag Zockgott February 6, 2018 2:23 AM GMT
i think i need some help with the rules on the roulette-tables. there are different kinds of roulette at the casino, like european, german or french. we all know that the normal rules are simple, the only difference is when it comes to the "zero". only at french roulette the simple bets(red, black, even...) are only loosing the half if the "zero" appears. everyone with any mathskills knows that it makes a difference for the odds if you could loose all of your bet or only the half of it. my question now is: how can 888 tell that the "normal" back-flow on all roulette variations is allways the same, 97.3% !? i think at this point 888 is giving wrong information once more, this 97.3 only is if you bet on numbers, not the simple chances. that means that if you are a player that would like to bet simple chances you have of course better to play the french variation with better odds, more than 98%. am i missing a point?
Flag Rhonda February 6, 2018 6:54 PM GMT
Not sure about the rules, Zock,  all i did was put equal amounts on the red and the same on the black until I had completed the challenge.  Bear in mind that when the green 0 comes up you win nothing, luckily this only happened once during my play  Good luck I hope 200 has a lot of dollars for you
Flag Zockgott February 7, 2018 2:12 AM GMT
hi rhonda,
thats what i posted about in my earlier post,..., you dont loose all if the "green zero" is hiting on french roulette. my first try was on europian roulette and i had a laugh about "888" once more when they took all my bets after "0" lol. after that i went to french roulette but still was feeling angry(on french roulette you would get back half of your bets if "0" appears) thats why i asked if someone here could tell me the rules(888 says its in all roulette games 97,3%back flow). because i know a litttle about math i know that this is wrong lol. if they say its always the same  odds they are doing wrong advertising, or if not they know the outcome before they "deal" the numbers( i dondt believe in that tbh but i think they should get their numbers/odds right). i dont  know what roulette variation you played during your challeneges, but imagine how much money you would have saved during all your games when "green zero" appears and you will get back the half of your bets  :)

i did my challenge anyways yesterday, but was my worst of all in my oppinion, the rules are shit, i try to explain what i think lol( i am stilll native german). after i had my thoughts about betting that much in a "rigged" casino(nahhhh, far from lol), i started my challenge with normal blackjack because the odds on black jack are much better for the player if you know the game(google the rules or at least a starting hand chart).during first 30 hands 888 told me thats is not your day, Udo lol. i lost 10:20, normaly no problem, that happens, but if you have to double up with for example 11 to a 5, i lost always and it doesnt count as a bet for the the challenge. so after i lost i lost "some" bucks i went to casino roulette because i thought maybe the odds on this special day would be better for me :) ... like i said i had to learn the special 888 rules of roulette and lost all my bets on green zero at nearly first hand. after that i needed to calm down, made the maths, learned the very special 888-rules, made a forum post and went to bed. today i played your system(i hate to know you will loose now or at least you cant win) and made it with a serious outcome. overall this was my sickest challenge so far and i lost around 60$ to make it. ...back to the rules, if i bet 10 on red, 10 on even, its not counting as 2 bets, maybe i put another tenner on 1-18, its still one bet for 888!? they have peeps employed, who couldnt count to 3 !? maybe they should stop partying all day and instead try to make some serious challenges instead ;)

after my **** casino callenge my next challenge was to do 20 bets on live-sports, with a minimum of 10$ each. i dont know how many of you are reading my posts or from which country you come from, anyways me as a german i allways get nicked of 5% on every bet by 888(german goverment taxes rules). thats by the way why i normaly do my sportsbetting on some other sites lol, imagine how much money that is over a year period. i dont want to advertise other sportbetting sites here, all of you being interested in sports betting knows anyways, all i have to say is that 888(special on live games betting) are crap. the odds they offer at betting are mostly oki but the software is crap.  if you try to open a game to have a look and making your thoughts if a bet is worth to do it needs years for the 888 software to open the game. if you opened the game you want to bet on(of course you are watching the games live on TV or internet) there are missing points/goals/..., its stupid. and at end you put a bet on something it needs much time to go through(at same time you can see on TV or online if your right or wrong) its like on poker when 888 are hosting games with bigger numbers and there is a lag overall(you dont need that at "live-games"). please, 888 invest some bucks in your game developers instead of **** 2-minute-blinds-freerolls, that will help on the long run.

Good luck Zock, if like me your final challenge is to win 300 hands on the 25 cent 50 cent tables that isn't so bad, just got so bored.  And that is terrible that you get taxed on the sports betting.  Each of those betting challenges I actually made money, purely by luck.  At the start of each game I just placed equal bets on the to win to lose and to draw sections. So each time counted as three bets.  One I bet on paid out 57 dollars, and I had place 30, so made there 27 dollars.  Another paid out 45, giving 15 dollars profit.  So in all think I ended up about 22 dollars ahead.  Same with the blast games, overall up by 15 dollars.  It was the poker that was killing my bank roll.  I figured that as some were on lower challenges they may have been playing to get to show down, as the calls were terrible.  Seriously players were just calling everything with total crap.  Now that is why 888 are promoting irresponsible gambling.  To set a challenge to get to show down, just encourages every player to call no matter what.  It increases the rake/profit for 888 and encourages players to just keep betting no matter what! I am keeping my fingers crossed that all the money you are making 888 rewards you with far more than the 50 dollars I got!

  • pushing player into gambling areas they dont want to play and they have no experience in
  • e.g. "ask" poker players to put $100 in average every day into casino or sport betting (yes, $500 missions made that number)
  • hold details of the promotion in secret or did anyone knews what the last missions will be
  • pushing players to levels their bankrolls dont fit into by the last secret missions, after they finished 90% (shame on you)

Never ever do that again!

888 is a good unique poker site, most entertaining compared to others.
Dont destroy your image!

The new promotion is a fair deal for provider and players.
That's how it should be.

last weekend was hard, i had a private game with few friends(always for peeps whou dont like carneval in germany), starting friday evening till sunday late. we are playing chess, poker, back-gammon and different other german card games like "skat" and "doppelkopf" so only had few hours during nights(if kind of sobber lol) to play my last challenge. i managed to do it with a small profit(around 45$). overall i won in all my challenges with casino excluded, even on blast because of my last lucky run.  at the forced casino "gambling" i got fxxx by 888, but it still leaves me with around 100bucks in front in all games. in my box of course was a 50$ "bonus", like most of all will get. i think its sick because i have to bet another 1750$ now to get it to "real money"(oki, only if i would play casino lol). but this promotion once more was made by sickos for sickos(like me, grrrr), and 888 wont stop that crap if they find enough sickos(me included) to try their luck because its a money-printing-machine for 888. btw i think 888 should have been able to host another birthdaybash last year if our mods here are promoting this 888-shittty-promotions, but maybe they can afford one this year lol.
..... any other forumers made it to chest 100 and won bigger!)

hi, guys..
have a question. I completed last step and got 500$ when opened final box.
Can anyone tell me how much rake should i make while playing poker to release that bonus?
And is there any way to track progress more detailed then in my rewards? I can only see slider there, no numbers about how much i wagered.

Thx :)

From Promotions Terms & Conditions & common Bonus Policy :

"Such bonus and winnings generated with wagers placed with such funds, may be withdrawn only after you have collected 3.5 Bonus Points per every $US 1 of the received bonus amount"

"You can earn Bonus Points by:

  • Playing in poker ring games -earn 2 Bonus Points (if applicable) for every $1 of your contributed rake.*
  • Playing poker tournaments -earn 2 Bonus Points (if applicable) for every $1 of tournament fee.
  • Playing casino games (from your poker account) -earn 1 BP (if applicable) for every $10 wagered in the casino. 
    * Contributed rake refers to how much rake you are directly responsible for based on how much you contributed to the raked pot relative to the other players at the table. Example: If you bet $25 into a $100 pot (25%) and a $4.00 rake is taken from the table, you contributed $1.00 of rake (25%), which earns you 2 Bonus Points (if applicable)."



You need 3,5 Points per Dollar.
So you need 1750 Points for your $500.
You have 60 days to clear the bonus.
So you have to generate 875$ rake in poker when you dont want to play Casino.

E.g. play every day 5$ SNG fullring turbo (which gives you 1 Point since rake is $0,5) 14,6 times.

Well, good luck. Dont try it to hard. You would not be the first one that loses much money because he feels like losing money if he dont get all of the bonus what is just a stupid thinking.

Just see the bonus as a reduced rake for 60 days by 57%.

oh i did i did man..but there is only casino wagering numbers..i dont play casino, just poker.
So wanted to ask here if i can track down wagering in poker games. From what i noticed i should rake 875$ to withdraw bonus and winnings accumulated while using bonus. Justo dont know why isnt my real bankroll in use instead of bonus, that way at least winnings would be in my real account.

Thx anyway :)
