I can relate to a lot here. 

For me stake used to be a good site! When i was bronze or Silver the amounts i got back with bonuses felt fair to me. Never realy paid attention to big giveaways and stuff. 

Being a mid tier Player here on stake (im Plat1 close to plat 2 ) feels not rewarding anymore. I spend 1k to 5k a month here and doent feel rewarded for playing anymore.

For perspective: i was always looking forward for the monthly Bonus but this month. Idk

The month before i got 100$ for 42k wager( mostly slots some keno/limbo)and a loss of roughly 1k 

Last month : same games i played -> 125 k wager lost 4 k -> monthly 200$. Thats where i realy lost faith. I know they got their Secret Formula and stuff but These bonuses seem random to me. I participated in every giveaway every forum post every Twitterpost and have won 1 time i think it was 200$. Meanwhile non vips get These Emails with big bonuses. 🤣 im glad for them but thats tough!

There should be some improvements for the Regulars who participate in many stake realated things. 

 

Im not even looking forward to any stake giveaways or monthly or weeklys. The Premium vip experience was lost after Gold vip sadly. 

Anyways gg!

A few what ifs here and there, but my past few months with Stake ever since I've signed up, has given me experiences and levels of emotions I never could've gotten anywhere else. Thanks to the occasional big wins I get on stake, I got to take my girlfriend out to a nice dinner once in a while. Of course, there's the loses that I couldn't overlook whenever I take a peek at my statistics.

Money comes and goes in this site if you bet wisely.

I've put to much energy and good feelings to stake - when stake used to be a great casino. 

Now I don't feel like this anymore, due to many stuff that happened atleast the recent year. Not satisfied at all anymore. Games behave like something else now, bonusses getting reduced pretty much every month / or restricted, marketing jokes that piss of loyal customers that deposited and lost a lot of money.

Overall, I am way more happy since I haven't deposited anymore - but still disappointed into stake. 

But one good thing is, now I am way more focussed onto my business projects that I've started, So yeah. 

Everything has good and bad sides. 

 

- Edit: Weird, i just logged of to see if this thread would be visible for non-stake users, or stake players without forum account. Nope, this section is not shown to the public. Weird and no transparency at all, again. ^^

perfectly hit the spot

Stake is 100% seeing how much they can get away with nowadays before people start leaving. Lower weeklys, less RTP ect. Just getting more greedy

Lost on alot of different casinos couple 10ks stake so far I am down the same amount. Do I regret it? No this site is probably the best I've been on. Instant withdrawal rake back weekly monthly bonus. And vip levels are huge since they don't have any retarded stuff how much you must gamble to take your bonus out.

Firstly, you have to be honest on why you spend time here or any casino. If you are here for the thrill of making fast money, then you will mostly 98% feeling bad as you will not make fast money, you will lose money fast and won't enjoy it. There are plenty of ways to make money fast with high risk that is not the casino. You see casino is a NEGATIVE SUM experience, You can't beat that math. You cannot have an edge, You may win sometimes, but the longer you play, over the years you will lose far more. Sure some people win the lottery. That's like getting struck by lightening.

Do you know why gambling was deregulated so abundantly? It's a tax on the poor. People don't like paying taxes, so gambling was a way to disguise a government tax on the people, and unfortunate as it's mostly the poorer people in society, and it's brilliantly disguised it as entertainment. 

However, if you used to like computer games when you were younger, loved the production, the music, the graphics etc, but are just not into playing those games anymore as they're just too demanding on your relaxing time. Firing up a slot, pumping up the sound, sitting back with a Pina Colada (there's a reason that song is called Escape ;) for all you who know) and spending an hour enjoying the experience, fantastic. You are most likely going to lose, but a PS5 games is like $70. Or going to the cinema etc. They cost money to be entertained. So if you are entertained even though you are going to spend some money, then you are enjoying yourself and the cost is worth it. And yes, once in a blue moon, you get a juicy bonus round, and that experience is great fun, especially if sharing with your friends or partners.

How many people do that though? As that is what you are supposed to do. You don't go to the cinema and stay all day watch every movie and eat all the over priced snaks, that would be unhealthy and not enjoyable and society would deem you as someone with issues.

Now Sports, especially horse racing. This is a real thing, that if you are really into it, and understand everything about it right down to the handicapping. This, you can make a lot of money, and there's 200 races a day from USA to AU and they go off all the time. Horses, unlike humans and their professional sports, are very predictable and consistent. This is why they have to be handicapped, as the people who own and look after these animals, deserve to get 10 years out of them, and that's why they handicap (add weights) so that even the most mediocre horse has as good a chance of winning, as the latest stud on the block. Of course I've made this very simple for you buy you get the idea,

And the reason horse racing is pure, unlike stock markets and premiership sports, is there isn't enough money in the market for hedge funds and big city players etc, to get involved. Your typical UK horse race has about $250k in the market. That's plenty of money for people to make nice wins, but not enough for Eddie Gumbles and Black Rock, to manipulate the games through paying players and refs etc etc. I mean, how fixed was the Super Bowl, last 2 years. It's nothing new. Stock market, exactly the same, all inside trading, retail players have no chance.

So, budget your slot playing to what you would for movies and PS5 games, stay away from table games, as you're not really getting much entertainment for your money. Don't bet on sports unless you have an edge, and make Eddie bring the US and AU PONIES to Stake, and give people some value, and then, Stake would deserve respect again. As it is, we all know it's shamless how it's ended up being operated.

Be good people. have fun. And here's a great piece of advice. Every week the money you've budgeted for gambling, give half of it to your most loved one, get them to kick you in the nuts, and call it even. You've just made someone very happy and you still have half your money ;)

Olso I recommend everyone to watch Chevy Chase Vegas Vacation, as that is where that fantastic line is lifted from, and it has an ending that can't help make you smile. Oh, and true fact, there's a horse running at Parx at the moment called Nick Papagiorgio. Those who know the film know how funny that it is. Horses are truly mans best friend, proper characters ;)

Its bad that the bonuses vary and you just adjust them every month. Last year the experience was great. Lost and won a good amount and had my fun. Now it feels different and it seems Mediumrare N.V is trying to get the most out if it. I thought this is not the case for this casino, but I think I was wrong. Sure, its just a company and companies try to improve on their numbers, but it seemed that Eddie had a different idea what it meant to play on steak. I think you guys drifted of your course and forgot what this was all about. Every decision made over the last 6 months was not in favour of the players and I am sad about that.

Joining stake is one of, if not the biggest, regret of my life. It was fun in the beginning but then everything changed and I can only assume they changed because Eddie Miraslov Craven got into the streaming business and needed to offset the ridiculous 95/5 revenue split he promised. I closed my account today because I know something is going on behind the scenes between stake and their providers.

Imagine playing on a casino website, spending nice amount of money monthly and not getting anything in return?

No regrets what so ever :D

This makes no sense. Every casino in the world gives bonuses. And they're far better than stake's, which aren't bonuses, but rebates. You have to play to get rewarded. And you have to lose to get rewarded. Stake doesn't even offer deposit bonuses which is insane considering the volatility and fees associated with crypto.

not much. Stake is a WINNER.

If you like curacao gaming licenses, malta providers, streamer's marketing fake wins, game manipulation, no deposit bonuses, fake reviews, countless bots, no transparency, a reddit community that removes any complaints, support that doesn't offer help when games malfunction, and social media accounts that mock the player base, then yes, stake is indeed a winner.

not at all i love this because unlike other big casino's they don't have the chat options. This place is good because say if you are having a bad day you can come here gamble + chat with people. (Well i use the sports room and chat with regular people english room on other hand won't be able to chat with farmers or beggars lol) .

So yeah if you are lonely like myself you have people to chat with :)
