Watch Out For The Online Casino Bonus - There's Always a Catch

Online casinos and sportsbooks have many ways to trick you into
gambling. One of the most common ways is offering their players casino
bonuses, which can be divided into several different categories. Now
let's talk about match bonuses (or in other words - about online casino
sign-up bonuses) today, as it's the most common online casino bonus

Match bonuses are often seemingly big in numbers
(sign-up bonus as big as $4000 is not a rare thing to see nowadays).
Many of these bonuses are very tricky, making withdrawing your winnings
as hard as possible. Several players have quit playing at those casinos
after they've understood that there's no easy way to gain profit with
this bonus. They feel that they've been tricked. Hell yeah, I can't
blame them!

Some of these match bonuses really are absurd. Even
though players in these days are not intellectually challenged , many
of them know that the $888 "free money" means cosmic deposits and
serious betting activity with real money, leading us to a fact that in
the end you're probably back to ZERO, angry and have no plans to return

Online casinos and poker rooms are extremely cautious
before giving bonuses away. Usually you, as a player are not allowed to
play blackjack, roulette and craps with your bonus money. And often you
can't withdraw your winnings if you have less than 10x bonus gathered
on your casino account. My personal best has been 134 dollars with $16
dollars no deposit bonus money... of course, I gambled it down to zero.
I was 26 bucks short to withdraw.

Some online casinos (not the
ones I prefer!) can afford those high bonuses only because they have
low payouts. Not many online gamblers look at payouts when choosing a
casino, so beware!

In some cases match bonuses can be used against casinos, but be sure to learn the rules before you start any monkeygambling.

The rise and rise of Ellen Page

Ellen Page is without question the woman of the moment in Hollywood right now. With a Best Actress Oscar nomination recently stacked up alongside a list of achievements for her turn in ‘Juno’, including being named the Breakthrough Actress of the Year at the Hollywood Film Festival, she is, to coin a lovingly overused tinseltown term, ‘hot’ right now. Piping hot.

Between a Rock and a Heart Place

Screw Geoffrey Chaucer. Not for his poetry, quite honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever read any of it, but because apparently he inadvertently created Valentine’s Day. I didn’t know this until recently. I just assumed the holiday was the byproduct of greeting card company greed and lack of anything better to do in the month of February, but evidently it’s been around for quite some time.

Halle Berry burns at the box office

Buried deep within the embers of grief, a spark of friendship ignites in relationship drama 'Things We Lost in the Fire'. However, while this thoughtful, emotional film delivers some strong performances and appealing cinematography, don't expect a blaze of drama and excitement.

Girls Aloud or Girls Alone?

Despite having fame, wealth, beauty and a hugely successful pop career, the members of Girls Aloud seem to be lacking in one department - a happy and healthy love life.

Great American Dumb Ideas: Elder Blues
2nd deposit 100% match bonus

Fads in mental health diagnoses come and go. Something called Existential Neurosis was popular for a while, but seems to have lost some of its gloss in recent years. For a long time now, any high-energy, active child risked being diagnosed—often misdiagnosed—with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).
