...so the other day in the Under the Tree promotion over on partypoker,...I've won some nice gifts by opting in and clicking on the tree daily...

,...then I won a: '$2 Casino Bonus'...and my real money balance increased by $2... Smile Thumbs Up Dollar

...then today I log in the client and notice my real $$$ balance 'DEcreased' by $2 Confused Spade

...so then I go look in my transaction history thingy and find this:

Bonus claimed back from the restricted amount on expiry of bonus:XMASCASINO2


..Mmmmm... didn't know there was a time limit,...and that they originally credited me in lieu of playing in the casino....

is that what it was...a time limited $2 bonus to play with...? ...has anybody else won one...?


If you get one,...better not waste time playing it... Smile Thumbs Up

PP bonusses sometimes have weird terms attached to them, or at least they had. Not seen a new bonus since the merger. Evil

To give away free money with a playthrough attached to it was not uncommon in the old days.

I didn't know Party poker put a time limit of only 24 hours on a bonus but I have noticed that some casino bonuses go directly on your balance and some you have to opt into which can be a nuisance if you are not aware of the specific terms.I always make sure I look at the terms of all the bonuses just in case I get lumbered with one I don't want.

Do you think they maybe do it that way, so you'll not easily notice losing more than the $2 they added, from your bankroll, while playing the casino?
Usually a bonus will only add to your balance after you've cleared the points requirement.

I've won about 5 of them but immediately opted out...

Two reasons:

1) I don't like having an inaccurate bankroll balance,

and

2) I don't want to go anywhere near the casino, even with free money...

I hope you got a lesson there. Almost every site has expiry dates in their tickets or
promotions. Such days the some of them have very short time in their requirements.
First thing you should do is check when they expire.

I had one for $2 that was like $160 wagering to clear it!

I won quite a few of these, I go straight to bonus page and opt out, so it takes it straight back, for the same reasons that yout does

Just to be clear, I don't opt out of the promotion, I do the promo every day.

It is when I get the casino bonus I opt out of it. It gets removed from account but you don't get anything to replace it

I find very funny having a bonus as a gift. I got a $1.00 bonus but have to make 6 points to clear the bonus. You pay $3.00 of rake and i will give you back $1.00 as a gift.

Anybody wants to give me $50.00 i will give you back$10.00 as a gift. Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

If you don't have any bonus' you are clearing and you are playing the site anyway, thats an ok prize imo. Those ones aren't helping me though cause i have like 7 actives bonus' running atm and wont make enough points to clear most of em.

It is the casino ones i have issues with mainly though

Exactly. It's 33% rakeback. It is much better than any other bonuses I've been getting; mostly you only get $1 per 8 points (which is 25% rakeback) with bonuses.
In case you have another bonus running, it might be better to pause it, and finish the Christmas ones first.
I already had 3 $1 bonuses, finished 2 of them, and then it's back to the Halloween mission bonuses.

... Big Smile Thumbs Up

...without reading the various stipulations burried somewhere,...you would at least think the ticket or prize would at LEAST be good for the duration of the promo... but ya,...they dangle the cash in your face, then 'snatch' it back... Confused

...oh well,... I guess it was originally meant to be spent in the casino,...in which I never frequent,...or have even been... I figure they're like the 'crack dens' of gambling.... Big Smile

Jerks, a prize is a prize. Why would they give you time to play a GIFT? A gift is a gift and I can do whatever I want with it. Imagine them giving you 1000$ GIFT and after 5 minutes, they take it back.

Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!
