few years ago, i have been posted some online live casino in my country giving 0.7% turnover as commision for us. now, i am getting more. I receive weekly LOSS REFUND 5% from the recap lose from monday-sunday
so if this week i loss 1000 unit, i will get refund of 50 unit
if i win on this particular week, the counting get restart on the next week

assuming i play baccarat with 1.2% house edge
i get 0.7% refund every time i bet (win or lose), so i think, the house edge is go down to 0.5%

if i get 5% loss refund on the losing week, can i assume i have 2.5% edge of expected return?

which way is safer to use this promotion? for now, i am betting fibonnaci progression using two account (both side banker + player)

Check the bonus terms and conditions and if you are allowed to, then I would do one of the following:

For the options below, I am assuming you have $1,000 per week to use for gambling.

One option: Play blackjack or something with a low house edge.

for blackjack bet half your CURRENT bank-roll per game until you double your INITIAL bank-roll or bust (then wait til the next week and repeat).

NB: I haven't worked out the EV per week for the above.

Another option: Play video poker with a high standard deviation***

standard deviation***: Joker Poker (kings)" or higher.

If you choose Joker Poker (kings), I am going to assume a Standard Deviation of 5.18 and a house edge of 1.4%(house edge before the 0.7% commission on turnover).

Best way: If you can bet your entire bank-roll ,then I would bet $1000 per bet until I reached about $10,000 (or bust), this is worth an EV of $40 per week.

Alternative way: If you can only bet in $50 units, then I would bet $50 per bet until my balance was about $2,200 (or bust), this is worth an EV of about $15 per week.

"Baccarat" way: If you only bet on the player bet for baccarat, then it is worth about $11.7^^^ EV per week

^^^: If you bet your entire bank-roll of $1000, and your goal was to reach $2,000 or bust, and the EV will be less if you can't bet your full bank-roll on one bet.

Note: the above EVs don't include the value of the "turnover commission".

Thanks for your information
Do you think its better to use a larger bet or i can bet small size to reduce variance effect?

Use as large*** a bet as possible in general, because "variance is your friend^^^" when betting with a cash-back bonus.

***: In my previous reply I forgot to mention, one major drawback of betting big, is that the casino may stop offering the bonus or label you a bonus abuser and not pay out (so check the bonus rules at the casino).

^^^: At least when your main goal is to maximize your weekly EV.

Also, you want a game with a high variance (standard deviation) and a low house edge.

In case, I didn't mention it before, the link below will give you an idea of what types of games fit this criteria (look for games with high standard deviation combined with low house edge) .

https://wizardofodds.com/gambling/house-edge/

----------------------
Things I forgot to mention in my previous post:

Bank-roll:
My guess at bank-roll requirements, if I wanted to bet $1,000 on this per week, would be:

a) Up to $450,000 in reserve (if I didn't have a job)
or
b) Put aside up to $1,000 every week (after tax, and other living expenses)

Note: this is just a guess, someone else may tell you "better" bank roll recommendations.

-----------------
Blackjack (house edge)

Almost all standard games of Blackjack have a house edge of less than 0.7%, so go and see what "turnover commission" you can get for that (if any) as that could be a better bet^*^.

^*^: It is worth having a look, because about 2 years ago I managed to find a reputable casino that was offering 0.3% "turnover commission" on a game with a player edge of about 0.36% after the commission.
The game was standard blackjack, but they offered early surrender (they should have had late surrender, instead).

You are almost right. It gives you an edge, but only if the week over which they consider the rebate covers 1 bet, If within the week, you place a number of wagers, then each of those wagers is exposed to the true house edge multiple times. A session where you expose your bankroll multiple times has an effective hold percentage many times the house edge.
I have a similar situation with one casino, and it's not lucrative. Sorry to burst your bubble.
Also, of course, establish trust with them. check by actual testig, that you can reliably withdraw any funds.
If you are enjoying the game, you're already winning.

i think i just cannot simply bet all my bankroll every week, because they have terms and condition for bonus hunter

i think i have a wrong point of view.
lets say on a 0.5% HE of blackjack
in my opinion, if i can use my bankroll to get 5-10x turnover each bankroll using any progression betting (negative or positive i still dont know what is the best), theoretically, my bankroll can producing minimum of 3x TO that gives me 3x0.7% instead of 1x0.7% if i bet my entire bankroll.

if i always can have more than 3x bankroll TO, and yet not busting my account (sometimes win,sometime loss), am i getting more edge?



***
i just bust my 100 units bankroll betting on baccarat (bet selection follow last result)
using modified d'alembert step:
1 2 3 4 5
2 4 6 8 10
3 6 9 12 15
4 8 12 16 20
5 10 15 20 25

The game was, 8 decks, early surrender, hit on soft 17, double after split, blackjack pays 3/2, can't remember the rest, but player edge was about 0.06% before the turnover commission (so add 0.3% to 0.06%).

NB: The game is not available anymore. but I managed to make $70,000+ before they found out this games' EV was not in the casino's favour.

What are the rules for the blackjack game at this casino, and what (if any) % refund do you get when you play blackjack?

How long it takes you to make 70k?

I dont really interested in Online BJ because each round takes more than 3 minutes per game because we must wait until all the player on the entire casino server complete the move (hit stand etc)

Games available for me:
Blackjack (i think card counting is possible) but the deck is cut half
Baccarat
Dragon tiger
Sicvo
Roulette
