Since tuesday of last week i received my bankroll of 8€ to play at gala casino poker! Since then untill today i spend few hours playing at plo2$ and sometimes at plo4$. The maximum of bakorll i achieved was 18€ and yesterday i got my acocunt busted!
I calculated my game and the points i achieved and i end to a conclusion that its almost impossible to get untill 100$. I made almost 300 points at percentage of 1$ per 20 points of rake!! I ended giving a little of profit to the site because i generated more rake than the money i received to the bankroll!
I made my cvounts and i dont undertstyand why the site push so much to unlock the bonus! With my game i could unlock all the bonus in 3 months with no problems; but they ask too much of points and most of us ended busted because its almost impossible to survive with 8€ to get 400 points!
If somebody is in a good way to clear all the bonus please tell here, and talk about your galacasino poker experience!

Well, usually the realtively small NDB are designed to draw you to their site. They give you a free few bucks, and most players WILL go broke, just due to the fact that even if you are a solid player, you've only got 1 or 2 buyins, which isn't enough to build a roll. The logic is, if they throw you a few free bucks in the hopes you'll go broke and deposit. It's a good business venture, as even if you DO manage to make the small roll work, they make it back in rake anyways.

Not to brag, but I've taken 3 NDBS here, 1 on party for $25, 1 on pkr for 2 $11 tickets, and 1 on yachting for $5. I managed to turn the money on party into $150 which I withdrew and put on stars. On pkr I cashed in a tourney, withdrew and spent it. Also managed to turn the $5 on yachting into $50, but they're making it really hard to withdraw so I may just say f**k it.

The point I'm trying to make is, it was a lot of hard work, and it took a lot of careful play in order to make anything from the relatively small rolls they provide. Its not impossible, but it certainly wasn't easy.

my biggest Problem was the limtis to the Bankroll.
But when u make 250 points the Limits were removed.*sitnogos are limted to 1$ , so cant play Doubel or Nothing *cash games limtes 0.05/0.10

A good thing is, when u reach next Vip Level, u get the Level next day. At my Vip Level 4 i get Points boosted *1.3 (1000points??).. Thats the Trick, move to Vip Level and play than next day, to profit fom Boost!

i played 3800 Hands and reached a Bankroll of 250€
got Vip Level4 with 1764 Status Points
and collect 2059 Points (can change 2k for 10$,i read on webside)
and cleaned 20$ of 90$ Bonus ..(tried to play speed Poker at higher Vip Level to collect Points faster to clear Bonus).

i made on monday a deposit to get the 200% bonus and entry to depositors freeroll ( finished on last bubble place 22.50$ with aa vs at i get out). but since 2 days my account is frozen.no answer from support why.. Aww crap!

The problem with clearing NDB are :

1. The bonus is often released in small amounts which makes it hard to play with a good bankrollmanagement. Especially when they start with 5$ or 10$
2. to get a bonus released it takes a lot of time if you play according to your bankroll.

I have cleared a 50$ bonus at FT in the past by playing only SNG of 1$ (I played 1-table double up or 1$ HU). After 4 months of frequently playing I released the bonus. My bankroll at that momnent was about 70 $ I think.
SNG one tables are easy to play multiple and not so risky as a cash table. So very usefull to clear bonusses but keep in mind it takes a lot of time and patience to clear a bonus.

I must admit it's pretty hard to do it but not impossible, also you need tons of luck to get there...

Still if you realize that you can't do it then play with the money that you got and maybe do a deposit later.

lol- i have no trust in a site which has no deposit/withdrawal via e-wallets (moneybookers,netellet etc.) options- this is too easy to set up, so having none of them sound fishy to me? only options galacasino poker provide are: bank transfer and checks- wtf? i got my ndb and i just use it for trying out which game i enjoy most to drill them later on a more trusty site

Everythingh free will cost you double said a wise man.So true with no deposit bomus,have to play what they want and more that you want.With just a litlle more pacience you should have make it work.In my case I did all the mistakes possible and get in tilt so fast.I will try the Unibet promotion
Good luck

Why do you think they are doing it this way ?
It is exactly wahat they want. Make it somewhat hard to achieve.
They want you to cash in some of your own money for further play to reach the goal.

The funny fact is that everything was going fine untill i had 150 points to clear the first bonus. The last 30 points where very painfull, with some coolers and bad beats!!Id rather not to think that the sites are controlling our points!

i'd say your account is probably frozen because you haven't verified your id, just a hunch but a common problem when making your first deposit.

Some sites have bigger profit ranges than others. This, being a little site and betting on the promotion of its image by giving away no deposit bonus, prefer to increase the profit range knowing that a big percentage of those who will be taking advantage of these bonus will never deposit a single cent there. In your case, taking in consideration you played well and even made enough to be winning for a while, perhaps it would be positive to deposit so can keep to try to achieve the goal of receiving other parts of the bonus. You aren't that far and you know you have what it takes to do it there.

Its hard to "survive" with such a starting capital but not impossible at all.
we have seen lately members of BRM turning leftovers from old accounts
from 1-2 dollars to a very good bankroll.
You need to be lucky also with such amounts.
gl with your next try

I managed to get myself up to about 25 dollars and lost it in 1 hand to a runner runner. Was really disgusted afterwards ;o
