[Merged][Fun] BCLC Playnow $100 deposit bonus (BC only) - *EXPIRED*

BCLC's Playnow website is finally back up. The promo is basically deposit $100, wager $100 on casino games, get a $100 "casino token". The casino token then needs to be wagered before it can be withdrawn.

So play $200 worth of blackjack (or other low house edge games like sicbo or baccarat as others have suggested) and unless you really get killed, you should walk away with considerably more than your original $100 deposit. (no guarantees of course :) )

Takes me back to the early days of online casinos, cashing in on promos left and right. I must've made thousands. Good times. :)

About This Promotion

How do I qualify for this promotion?

Qualifying is easy. Follow the three steps below to qualify:

2. Make a single deposit of at least $100 to your Account prior to 11:59pm October 5th, 2010.
3. Then wager $100 (cumulative) on PlayNow.com casino games prior to 11:59pm October 5th, 2010.

When do I receive my Casino Token?

Your Casino Token is credited to your account once you have wagered at least $100 on casino games.
EDIT:

Vancity Visa: not a cash advance
PCMC: cash advance

EDIT:

Baccarat method posted here:

It should show a total of $50 on each of those (hover your mouse over each stack of chips to see the total that has been bet---it should be $50 on each side, Banker and Player. At the top of the screen, next to "Bet" it should say $100). Then you click on "Deal".

- You should either win $97.50 or $100.00 -- check to see next to "Winnings" in the top right-hand corner. It should say either of those amounts, $97.50 or $100.00

- ALSO, next to "Token Balance" it should say $100. That means they have applied your free $100 as indicated by the promo. ---If it DOESN'T say that, check your ACTUAL balance to see if it's increased by $100. The "free" money should be credited immediately. You don't need to wait several hours or days, etc.

--- (Some people are reporting they have had to play twice. I personally did click to re-bet, without really verifying it first, but I shouldn't have had to---the rules require that you wager $100 to get the free $100. Even if you do play a second time, you only stand to risk an extra $2.50). If it doesn't show that extra $100, for any reason, it's (1) either after the promo date ended.

My login doesn't work and I got locked out. Then the support number is busy and I can't get through. Bogus. But thanks for the heads up OP.

Same for me, and I`ve been trying to get through off and on since this morning.

Anybody know if they extended the promo`s they were offering just before the crash.

Can this promotion be used in combination with the $10 Free Play?

The conditions and FAQ does not seem to specifically forbid it, other than:

I don't think you could combine them even if you wanted to. You have to deposit $100 but before you can wager that money, I think you have to play your $10 free play first (say 2 $5 blackjack hands, wins or pushes go to your cash account), then you play your $100 deposit (say 20 $5 hands of BJ), then you get your $100 "token". Then you wager your $100 token (say another 20 hands of BJ). Then you can withdraw whatever you have left.

There are a lot of ways to do this. If you want massive risk and reward, deposit 100, blow it all on one bet, get 100 token, then blow that all on one bet.

You could run it up to $400 (a little less cause of house edges) if you got lucky enough.

Or you could play your $100 deposit and bet $100 in small bets and have ~$98, then go for broke with the $100 casino token and blow it on one bet. Either you will lose ~$2 or you will win $200!!

The Baccarat banker bet is actually quite good, as is blackjack but youd need to view a chart or remember what to do in different situations.

Tried to register an account, Site says unable to complete my registration. :confused:

Bleh. Just as well. I'll take it as a sign. I'd probably go broke playing there.

To answer my own question:

Yes, it does work! I got the $10 token immediately upon registering. And the account page shows I still have the $100 deposit offer available.

Got my ass handed to me, was going to cash out for $75 profit after playing all $5 blackjack hands. Decided to play one $75 hand and won. Cashed out $250. Thanks OP, not bad for 20 minutes work.
