Being a casino player from the USA is not easy these days. But there are still some great bonuses available if you know where to look.
The current offer from Las Vegas USA Casino looks mighty tasty on the surface. Let’s dig into the terms and conditions and see how good (or bad) it really is.
The maximum deposit bonus for new players is currently $3,000 at 150% match. So a player would need to deposit $2,000 to claim the full bonus amount available.
Assuming that you could deposit the full $2,000 to get the full bonus – we’ll get to deposit options shortly – the wagering requirements on this offer are as follows;
The total deposit amount ($2,000) plus the total bonus amount ($3,000) which comes to $5,000 must be wagered a total of 40 times on allowed games. Games NOT allowed include all the low house edge games such as Craps, 21 Games, Pontoon, Caribbean Hold’em, Baccarat, Tri Card Poker, Roulette, Three Card Rummy and Sic Bo.
Low edge games that do count towards the rollover have a multiple of 90 times the total of the deposit amount plus bonus amount. These games are Multihand Video Poker, BlackJack, Video Poker, Caribbean Stud and Perfect Pairs.
Let’s examine the bonus for a player playing perfect strategy at blackjack. Blackjack is one of the games that has a 90x rollover. So we have deposited two thousand, got a three thousand bonus for a total of five thousand. We are going to play blackjack to clear the requirements. With a ninety times rollover we need to wager a total of $5,000 x 90 which comes to $450,000. That’s a lot of wagering.
Ok, playing perfect strategy on Blackjack we can expect to lose about 0.50% to the house. Multiply the total 450K by half of one percent gives us a loss of $2,250. Remember that the bonus amount was $3,000 so in theory we can manage to take a $750 profit from this bonus.
That is a pretty good deal. But is it realistic to expect to profit from this bonus?
The house edge in any casino game is calculated over a very large number of games played by many players, and the returns those players receive, or losses they experience, are averaged out to come to a percentage ‘return to player’ number, which we call the house edge.
So the thoery is that for every one hundred dollars that a player plays on the blackjack tables, they will get back $99.50 if the edge is 0.50%. But that won’t happen exactly like that after every hundred dollars wagered. It should come out like that after you have wagered enough to overcome the variance of the game.
Of course with a wagering total of $450,000 that would probably be enough for the averages to come close to the norm, but bear in mind that you may hit a bad run and go broke – that is, loss all of your bankroll – before the averages begin to take effect.
There is no guarantee of a profit when playiing in a casino. All we can do is try to get the numbers somewhat in our favor. Well, this bonus does that. If you can play perfect strategy, not make mistakes, or go on tilt, then this bonus has a positive expectation to the player.
Whatever amount of deposit you want to make, your wagering will also earn you comp. points. The rate varies depending on the game that you play, but you can expect a minimum of 6 comp. points for every one hundred dollars that you bet. In turn these points can be converted to cash at the rate of $1.00 per 100 points. So that is a form of cashback or extra bonus which can increase you take from this offer.

Depositing to Las Vegas USA casino
Ok, so much for the bonus. Now, how about getting your money into the casino to take advantage of the bonus?
Because Las Vegas USA casino accepts players from the USA, depositing can be a bit tricky.
For players not in the USA, Neteller is available, with a deposit minimum of just $10 and a maximum of $2,500. US players can try using their credit card, preferably Visa, which has a $20 minimum and a $5,000 maximum. If that doesn’t work they can use their credit card to buy an MST GiftCard from the casino which they can then use to deposit to the casino. That’s a little bit complicated, but basically it is a way to get round any depositiing restrictions that your credit card issuer may impose on gambling transactions. To buy those giftcards, just go to the casier section in the casino software and select that option; support will fill you in on the details.
You can also try money order to make your deposit. You can actually deposit just $1.00 using moneyorders, with a maximum of $870. If you choose this method you should deposit at least $100 as the casino will cover the fees on deposits of this amount or higher.
To cashout your winnings, you have the option of getting a check by mail or courier, a direct deposit to your bank account using ACh, a money order, or a Neteller payment if that option is available in your country.
The above bonus deal applies to USA and Canadian players and most other countries. Some countries however have different terms imposed on them. Most importantly, the wagering requirement for non north American players is doubled, making this bonus deal unprofitable for them.
