I have been getting around to writing an article for beating Playtech Software Casinos for months now.  Blitz has even threaten to kick me off the team if i dont get my act together.  So here we are with my guide on how to win at a Playtech branded casino’s.
All three of us have used the following strategy successfully at two playtech casinos that are offering a massive welcome bonus, which under the normal circumstances, would be considered to hard to make the wagering requirements on.
The two casinos are City Club Casino and Club Gold Casino.  These two casinos use Playtech software, and are not part of the same casino group.  Both Casinos are offering a 400% deposit bonus, which can be claimed instantly, and only slots are allowed to make the playthrough requirements on.  I am not going to go over again what Playtech casinos are, that can be found elsewhere on the site.

Signing Up and Claiming the 400% Welcome Bonus

First off, dont bother trying to sign up to either casinos if you are from the US.  Playtech pulled out of America a while back and will not accept players from US.  Make sure your country of residence is allowed to sign up and claim the bonus(most are), we know that players from Peru have to make additional playthrough requirements for the City Club Casino bonus.  All these terms and conditions can be found on the sites.

Start by going to either City Club Casino or Club Gold Casino (links open in new window).  We are using City Club Casino for this example.  Download the software (dont register via the instant casino) and sign up for a new real player account.  Once the casino has installed and you have logged in, go to the cashier and make the maximum deposit to get the 400% bonus.  City Club has a maximum bonus of £400, so deposit £100 (or currency equivalent) and get £400 free, giving you £500 to start playing with. The bonus is credited instantly and comes with a playthrough requirement (wagering requirement) of 20 x the bonus and deposit, which means you have make £10,000 worth of bets on slots to clear the bonus and withdraw.  As you can imagine, pretty much impossible to clear right? NO!!! its easy… Here’s how…

Which Slots to Play to Clear the Wagering Requirement

Navigate to the video slots section in the casino lobby and find the slots below.  You are going to be playing the following 4 slot games.

  • A Night Out – 20 Line Video Slot with free spin bonus feature (doesn’t hit often)
  • Dr Lovemore – 20 Line Video Slot with 20 free spins feature (hits often)
  • Desert Treasure – 20 Line Video Slot with pick a win bonus and 10 free spins bonus (this game pays the biggest line wins)
  • HIghway Kings – 9 Line Slot with no bonus feature (use this game to play fast and clear remaining wagering demands)

If you want to mix it up and try other slots, remember to stay away from the Marvel jackpot Slots and any slots with more than 25 paylines.  You need to now start playing at a bet per spin level of at least £10.  I usually go to Dr Lovemore first and play at £20 per spin and get my balance up to over £2000 pretty quickly.  I then go to A NIght Out and play at £10 per spin till i hit the feature at least twice.  You will usually find the first bonus round on A Night Out gives only a few spins but at a decent multiplier, such as 4 spins at x10.  The win off the first feature is usually not so good but the second time it hits always seems to pay a big win, such as 10 free spins at x20.  Desert Treasure is good to play when you get your balance over £5000 and you are trying to hit the 5 scatters, or hit them during the free spins feature and you will be easily in a position to make the playthrough requirements and cash out.

You should be keeping track of how much of the wagering requirements you have met as you go along, the bonus section in the casino cashier will show you how far you have left to clear the bonus requirements, but it is a good idea to keep track of it yourself.  You can do this by making a note of every 10 spins you make.  So at £10 per spin, 10 spins = £100 of play through.

How to Finish, Cash Out, and Not Break the T&C’s

Hopefully by now you will have a big balance and have made the wagering requirements to cash out your winnings.  If you have got yourself a big balance, but still some way to go to make the playthrough, go to the Highway Kings slot.  This game can be set to fast play and a high bet per spin amount, making it easy to play super quick without losing much of your balance (its plays very even).  At this point you want to make sure you have cleared the bonus by going to the cashier section and checking under the bonus tab.  It will tell you if the demands have been met.  If its still showing wagers to be met, simply wait 30 minutes and check back (it can be slow to update).  When its showing the demands are met, so to the live chat button and confirm with the live support agent that you have made the play through.  Now you are ready to cash out.  Do i have to explain how to do this? Hopefully you will have deposited using an ewallet like Moneybookers (Skrill) or Neteller.  This will allow you to easily withdraw to that method.  Next you will need to send scanned copies of ID (drivers license,  passport) and a utility bill as proof of address.  You can do this by taking a photo using your phone, if you dont have a scanner, and emailing it to yourself.  Then send these documents to the support team at the casino.  This is a completely normal requirement that almost all casinos ask for before they authorize  a cash out.  Its amazing the amount of people in some forums claiming that a casino is trying to scam them and steal their ID by requesting these items of identification.  Its perfectly safe and is to prevent fraud or abuse by players.  Yes, I know, Pot, Kettle, Black..But we never use any techniques or methods to defraud a casino.  That is illegal and as a word of warning if you think its a game, check out this guy

Now go to City Club Casino or Club Gold Casino and Beat the Casino, make sure you come back and comment on how you did and how much you won!!
