    Done too!

    Question 1 is a bit stupid isn't it - I mean, does ANY affiliate ONLY work with ONE program? ???

    Question 3 too: The AMOUNT of the bonus is irrelevant - the ONLY things that matter are what the WR is, and if it's Cashable or Phantom!
    I mean, a 200% bonus up to £500 with a WR of (D+B)x50 and Phantom would be totally crap compared to a 100% bonus up to £100 with WR Bonus ONLY x30 and cashable.
    IMHO A small bonus with low WR is better than a big one with high WR.

    My problem with Fortune Lounge casinos is that on the welcome bonus you ask for WR of Deposit x1 and Bonus x40 - which = Bonus x41 (on 100% bonuses).
    That means on my websites where casinos are listed in order of Best to Worst SUBs, you come BELOW all the casinos with Bx40 (e.g. Palace Group), Bx35 (e.g. several NetEnt based casinos - many with MG games too), Bx30 and lower (e.g. Red Flush, 32Red, CR, Bet365, and numerous other casinos on various softwares).

    Follow-on bonuses at FL are Bx30 - which is good for customers once they have signed up - but IMHO if the initial welcome bonus isn't tempting enough, they aren't going to sign-up in the first place.

    That's what I don't understand either. I get the idea that offering too little a wagering requirement leaves it open to advantage play. But on the other hand, FL like so many other casinos these days has their T&C's & bonus rules locked up tight to guard against this play/er.

    Besides, a "welcome" bonus, isn't that putting out the message a NEW player is gladly received and given a bonus(s) as a welcome incentive. Having a 41x wagering requirement, is about as un-welcoming as it gets, especially with MGS casinos. The majority are 30x bonus and nothing is applied to the deposit.

    At 30x wagering, while it's not impossible to meet, it's not a walk in park either. And going on my experience, most players will bust out on the sign-up bonus(s) anyway. So I don't understand why raising it a further 10x with an additional 1x of the deposit is a doing FL or its affiliates any favours.

    I think that today there is a massive disconnect between what a player and some affiliates view as the purpose of a bonus to that of the casinos. As a player, you're looking for a bigger bankroll to play with and therefore more shots at hitting a big win. Some players are looking for an advantage, no doubt. From a casino's point of view, these days a bonus is a means to trap a player into playing for an extended period of time and to vastly reduce their chances of making a withdrawal. Apart from crap sign up bonuses with massive wagering requirements that are nothing but traps for the naive or unwary, many casinos are offering players 10% for "preferred deposit methods" like they are doing players a favour when in reality they are simply attempting to smooth out the variance and force players to play longer than they otherwise would after hitting a win.

    If you view things from that perspective then you can understand why the casinos go so far to lock things up. They aren't interested in giving players a fair go or a leg up at all, they are interested in making it as difficult as possible for players to withdraw.

    most businesses try and improve the experience for their customers, these casinos seem to make it more complicted.
