EXPLOITING STICKY BONUSES: Earn thousands more dollars
Did you know that you can easily exploit those casino bonuses that state that you can't withdraw any of the bonus amount? You know - the ones that say in the small print 'the bonus money is for wagering purposes only and cannot be withdrawn'. They may seem pointless at first but there is a really easy way to beat them, one that is becoming increasingly valuable as more and more casinos offer these 'sticky bonuses'. Because the casinos think they have got one over on you by not letting you cash out the free bonus they offer much more generous bonuses than usual, often up to $600 or more.
So how do you do it? Firstly you need a bonus that will match your deposit at least 100%, say $100 free for $100 deposited, giving you a total of $200 to play with. You place all of this on an even money bet, one hand of blackjack for example, or red on the roulette wheel. If you lose, you have only lost $100, but if you win, you will have $400. Of the $400, $100 was the free bonus money that you can't cash out, but that still leaves you with $300 of which $200 is pure profit. So you see for a more or less 50/50 shot, you will either win $200 or lose $100, keep hitting sticky bonus casinos and your winnings will start to massively outstrip your losses. Your winnings will get higher and higher the more casinos you hit.
When you win you will need to play out the minimum wager requirement as you would do for claiming normal bonuses, but because the casino expects you to lose the requirement is lower than usual, often just 4 times the bonus + deposit. Using the blackjack system is obviously the best way of playing out. Not all the casinos will let blackjack play count - I have put (no bj) in the table below to indicate casinos that don't allow it.
THE MATHS BIT: Why you will win big time
It doesn't take a genius to work out that you will make money out of this when you have a choice of losing $100 or winning $300 on a more or less even money gamble. These are the best investment odds you will find anywhere in the world, I can guarantee you that. You don't have to understand the maths but it can help you realise what a golden opportunity this is.
For the maths fans out there I have simple formula you can use to calculate your expected earnings from using this system. For 100% match up bonuses, multiply half your deposit by the number of casinos you plan to hit - say you put in $100 and have planned to hit 10 casinos your expected earnings would be $500.
Obviously there are many sticky bonuses out there with much better than 100% match up offers so when you factor in these casinos your expected earnings rise even more. You have to remember that you can't test the water with this system, you can't just say 'I'll try a couple of casinos and see how it goes' because the only way it is guaranteed to make you big bucks is by hitting as many casinos as you can.
On the left I've compiled a list of the best sticky bonus casinos as well as a break down of expected earnings after you've hit each of them. This system takes balls but once you hit your stride your money will start accumulating in larger and larger amounts. You should plan your strategy like a military strike, note down which casinos you are going to hit, and sign up to them all, making sure you have your bonuses deposited so you can hit them all in quick succession. Alternatively you can try what my friend is doing and hit one casino per day, just make sure you have a plan!
Please let me know if you find any other good sticky bonus offers that I can add to the list, the more we can find the better it will be for everyone! If you find one make sure you check the terms and conditions, some sticky offers make you play through the wager requirements before collecting the bonus and so these are not really recommended - it would be harsh to play through and then lose on the big bet. Remember you won't find a better way to make $4000 in a couple of days anywhere else, so be sure to tell your friends how well you got on - and I'll hopefully hear from you on the player's forum.
* Brandy casino is a special case as it does not work like normal casino bonuses, but it can still be used in the sticky bonus system. Instead of giving you a bonus they state that they will reimburse anything you lose in the first 3 hours up to $500. This basically means that it is even better than a normal sticky bonus. After depositing the money you wager the deposit 5X, having played at least 50 times. This qualifies you for the reimbursement - so gamble all your money as normal on one even money bet, if you win, hey presto, you will have more or less doubled up, if you lose, you get your money reimbursed and can cash it out! A win win situation if ever there was one.
**Racing Track Casino also offer a 200% bonus of up to £50 if you prefer. And they also have a 20% bonus of up to £500 - you can still use bonuses of less than 100% with the sticky bonus system. Instead of betting your bonus plus all of your deposit just wager the bonus along with an equal amount of your deposit. For example say there is a 20% bonus offer and you deposit $500 - you get a $100 bonus, so bet this, plus $100 of your own money - if you win you will have $800 for a total profit of $200, whereas if you lose you have just lost $100. You will still have to play out the minimum wager requirements to cash out.
***Swiss Casino and Casino Las Vegas will keep reimbursing your account with a new 100% sticky bonus up to $100 if you bust out, you can only do this up to three times if necessary.
