Casino Bonus - Best way to release it? 0

I've gotten a $5 Casino Bonus to release on these games:
Black Jack, Table Poker, Table Casino, Roulette, Live Black Jack, Live Roulette, Live Baccarat

Now, I went along and played some roulette and made those $5 into $6.05 not knowing that they had these T&C that if I made so called 'Safe Bets' they wouldn't count towards releasing the bonus. I need to bet $175 in order to release the bonus and any potential winnings.

I really don't know anything at all about Casino games since I don't really play any so my question is: What is my best option in order to release this bonus? It seems that the house has a huge edge on me so it's more or less impossible to release it.

But I've got to thinking. I could use the money to play roulette and use that Red/Black system, where you double your bet every time you lose, to get a decent amount and then use that amount to play the games that would actually count towards releasing this bonus.

Is that a good idea so I could possibly increase my odds or is it just a waste of time so I should just go for it right away?

As I said, I have no experience what so ever about this so any input would help a lot!

Depends on the terms and the table minimum. Of cause a $5 bankroll can't survive the slightest swing, when betting $1 per hand or spin.

Live dealer games usually have high limits, so i keep them out.

If Black Jack has say a 10cent option, you could try and grind it out, and have the expectation to end up with around $4.

In my opinion it is best to take the $5 to the roulette wheel and bet all on 1-5 single numbers. If you hit, you end up with at least $35, and can start grinding out. If you miss, it is game over fast.

At roulette, the minimum stake is $0.10, Black Jack has a minimum of $1. Might be an idea to go with the roulette then and do a few black/red bets and a few on the numbers? Or could it be an idea to bet $0.10 on say 30 numbers at a time? About 4/5 times (30/37=0.810810810.....) that will give me $3.50 for a $3 bet. So 5 bets is $15 and potential winnings are $15. So it's definitely -EV but it might be the way to go in order to release the bonus and possibly get some extra $ for it? Worse case scenario is that I lose the first bet, then it's basically all over...

------------
Never mind, that was a stupid calculation. I'll only make $0.50 for each win so for every 5 round I would earn $2 but lose $3 so it's a $1 loss basically. But I could be lucky and hit more then my fair share but chances are I won't...

Grinding it out on Roulette is a bad idea. With a 2,7% house edge you can expect to lose close to $5 while betting the $175. So not worth the hassle. Bet big to get either a decent amount of cash or bust out quickly.

Is there any other game that might work better? Any ideas?

Not much you can do with this bonus and the restrictions it has.
You would have more chances if you could play slots Smile
As it is give it a go with the roulette, since betting with 1$ in Black Jack wont last more than 5 mins Smile

Nope. Blackjack usually is the game with the lowest house edge. My approach would be to aim for at least a $20 to $40 bankroll, by making full bankroll bets (if possible). If i get there, i can switch to grinding out the wagering with low bets on a low variance game

I have tried to clear casino bonuses before on free $$$ and it is very difficult. I think I would go to slots and hope for a big payout, and then use that money to clear the bonus.

Never increase your bet amount just because being on a losing streak trying to make up the loss or diminished profit. Better bet 3 to 5 times the minimum wager from the start so you can lower the amount of bet later on.
This simple discipline applies to any casino games (excluding live dealer blackjack).

Was checking the 1500$ free casino money release:

Seems impossible, they want me to 20x wager the 1500$ on slots to keep some of that winnings, while on roulete i would need to 100x wager the 1500$ in one hour Smile ...such offers are "waste of time". Make sure to check the release requirement before spending any time downloading software and providing them with all your info.

Never even look at these bonuses with X amount, usually starting at 1000$ to release in an
hour or so. These are the worst ones requiring from you a deposit after the free play,
which deposit is subject to a playthrough also in most of them. Bad" bonuses".

Yes. I agree. They intended to lure players for depositing by such kind of strategy.
