I've been playing Bovada poker (and a little sports betting) for a while now, and I've been thinking about taking advantage of some of their casino promotions; however, I've little to no intention of playing their casino games beyond the rollovers. I was wondering whether this behavior would get me cut off from bonuses, or if it would be acceptable to "make it up to them" with enough action elsewhere? If that should be the case, does anyone have a rule of thumb for how much I should put in?
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

How will you possibly be able to take advantage of their casino promotions? There's a 40X rollover, isn't there?

80x (which is really 160x) for the match bonuses, 20x for most others. But at a .58% edge for the normal blackjack (the single- and double-deck don't count, and the European, despite being S17, has a higher edge due to loss of DOA, surrender, and peek), that's still +EV for the matches and Blackjack Sundays, although the risk of ruin is high.
