I read a complaint here about online casinos. I can see also right on this site flashing ads promising huge “welcome bonuses”. Who can honestly justify those insane bonuses at online casinos? Many players feel chills caused by the prospect of cheating. I never ever seen a brick-and-mortar casino make an offer of even $1 bonus. Because they would lose lots of money without some form of cheating. No wonder the USDOJ don’t allow such operations in the United States.

Sports betting is different because nobody can cheat the results. Horseracing too. But blackjack or roulette? The software does anything they want to win. You cant see a thing they do. Ever wonder why you win so big when playing with fake money? Then the opposite hits you without mercy when you play with real money (bonuses included). They never backroom you… count cards much as you want.

One piece of advice in the complaint thread. Play for real money only in land-based casinos. Wholeheartedly agree.

They do it all the time with match play and various other promotionals.

Yeah, tons of casinos offer free play and bonuses for signing up/playing/etc... so you kinda lost the point there.

Next, it's well established online casinos are very "play at your own risk" and most avoid them due to having personally been cheated by one or many of them.

Finally, was your whole point to make this thread to just refer to some other 'online complaint' thread where you could have simply put your post in that thread and not have wasted an entirely new one repeating the same thing?
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

isn't this like an $11k bonus with a 1000x playthrough requirement? What brick and mortar wouldn't do that if they had the ability to track it and hold the credits for as long as it took to meet the requirement?

I'm guessing the casinos can, or they wouldn't do them.

I guess you've never been to a brick-and-mortar casino before, because many will toss you a little just for signing up.

Besides that, you can just play it through and leave whereas online casinos have Terms & Conditions, the most relevant of which are the playthrough requirements. Feel free to read some of my articles. In many cases, you're better off NOT to take a bonus because you can cash out anytime. Sometimes, the playthrough requirements combined with wager restrictions make any possibility aside from losing money almost impossible.

Yeah, because, 'Point shaving,' isn't a thing that has ever happened. I think I could actually hear my eyes rolling when I read that. More importantly, many online casinos also have sports betting and the vig on sports exceeds the House Edge on many other games.

As far as the rest of your statements are concerned, I'm sure you attached play logs proving this on a later post in this thread, right? No? I guess I'll continue to wait for your proof, then.

That's fine. I don't recall where anyone held a gun to your head and demanded you play online.

“gun to your head”

You must be a casino guy. Point given, point taken. There ain’t no reason to argue anymore.
