I've had lots of PMs this week about my diary for various reasons, although a couple of people have asked the question:
The simple answer is no.Do you always try to double up casino bonuses?
Doubling up, sometimes referred to Two-Tier Betting or Stickying Up benefits the player in some situations, and these situations will differ from person to person.
The idea is to place large (or full bankroll) bets to a target gain, then grind out the rest of the wagering at low stake bets to reduce the varience on the remaining wagering.
The main reasons to place large bets to a target gain are:
If none of these reasons are found, then there is often little gain in EV for the extra risk/varience in placing big bets to a target gain.
- I will lose a large amount wagering the bonus due to playing a relatively high HE game, or due to a high wagering requirement.
- The wagering requires me to play a game with a complex strategy, therefore taking longer and lowering my profit per hour.
- I cannot use autoplay to complete the wagering.
- The bonus is sticky.
