    I was actually going to post a question in the general discussion last night but after today I got my answer. My original question was going to be:

    If you claim or redeem a free chip for $50 that has a wagering requirement of let's say $1,000 and the maximum that you can withdraw on that free chip is $100...What would happen if while you are trying to playthrough your requirement, you hit a random jackpot, would you still only be able to withdraw the $100 maximum?

    On Raging Bull (link) I deposited $40 the other day and didn't have any luck. Today I received a free $65 chip to play with and I redeemed it last night. I played for a little bit but the wagering requirement was something like $2,500 and I wasn't too excited.

    Today after work, I logged in to finish playing. In the screenshot attached, you will see what winning pay line made me realize that I would make the requirement and be able to cash out the maximum $100.

    This is the 2nd free chip that I have turned into a free $100 on Raging Bull in the last 2 months so again, it is possible!

    Something VERY VERY important that I forgot to mention. If you know that you have a playthrough requirement, you have to watch it very closely because on Raging Bull, your maximum withdrawal limit on most promo codes is $100 BUT the minimum that you can withdraw is also $100.

    To give you an example: Once I got down to only needing $100 left before I could request a withdrawal, I upped my bet and kept playing until i had $3 left on the requirement. What I had to do at that point is change my bet to $1 and play 3 more spins. The reason why is because AS SOON as you have played through the requirement, they will erase everything in your bankroll that is above and beyond the $100 max. Had I kept playing, my balance would of fell below the minimum $100 needed to request the withdrawal.

    I hope that makes sense.

    Yeah, a lot of casinos have that $100 minimum, $100 maximum rule in place. I generally do not have bad experiences and trust most of the bigger online casinos, but the reason for this seems to be that it would force you to make another deposit before you would be able to withdrawal from your free token.

    I am always very careful about reading the rules and regs whenever you get a free anything... token, matching deposit bonus, comp points ... they all come with some restrictions and they vary greatly casino to casino. Many things in life you can get away without reading the small print.. online casinos are not one of them.

    Just a quick update:

    I requested my withdrawal on 11/17 and it was in my bank account this morning. It was faster than expected but important to note that I have verification documents on file already.

    Congratulations on another win @SherKev, you are starting to be very good at this. After reading the posts I do wonder what is harder, to win the money or to fulfill the wagering requirements and withdraw limits... :)

    Thank you! lol I know what you mean. What I have found is that if you find just a few casinos that you enjoy and can establish yourself as a loyal player everything runs smoother. Even just one or two real-money minimum deposits a month shows the casino that you are for real.

    Yep, I guess that if you are making deposits on the casino they will treat you better, at the same time it's pretty much like you say, you need to have luck with the casino because a few of them have a really poor customer service.

    Great to hear you won again lol.. Even better to hear they paid out quickly this time :)

    Yes I am a loyal player of Bovada (US only and NY excluded.. Sorry..) and get payouts in under 12 hours now.. I should however try more of these free chips at Raging Bull.. You are doing excellent with them.. The only downside is, how much would it hurt to win a huge jackpot and only be able to cashout $100 :|

    $100 is better than nothing and let's face it @RyanWeb , if @SherKev won a huge jackpot, most likely we would never hear again from her, so it's for the best. :p

    Yeah, in the screen shot I posted, I had hit for I think $1,800 but it didn't matter because of the restrictions on the bonus code. Very funny @oportosanto - I may not show up often, but I would still be around haha! I would have more time to actually do what I like if I won a huge jackpot :) and doing what I like involves posting here!
