      I got the mail yesterday from 770

      Try out our casino games with $10 free cash!
      Between 2 poker tournaments or simply to relax a little after a session of poker, try our games risk-free!

      How to take advantage of your $10 free cash*?

      Login to your Poker770 account
      $10 will be automatically credited
      Enjoy $10 on our casino games

      The catch is, it deducts your $ from "real money account" first and not from overall "balance"!

      What that means is you have lets say 10$ for poker and you go to casino 770, balance is 20$ (yours 10$ + "10$ free cash"), you spend 10$ in casino and you have 0$ for poker and 10$ in your "balance" but 10$ less for poker!

      how stupid. i wonder if we play the 17.70 down to 7.70 in casino games and then send them an email if it would help.

      i figured out how to get around this.

      what you need to do is sit down at at least one poker table with the $7.70 or however you have for poker, and then play casino games. the 7.70 will be reserved on the poker table so all that is left is the $10 casino bonus money and that is what will be used for the casino. you dont even have to be playing poker at the time, you can just be sitting out, as long as the money is tied up on a poker table.

      I'd only play blackjack on casino games, and i do it at PartyPoker that can actually draw 5 hands at a time.

      But mindset needs to be more than awesome to play BJ 5handed.

      Why I did not see this warning before :(

      I just thought I would play the 10 USD up in the casino, but then I found out that the remaining 7.7 USD, was tired to my casino account, not useable for poker.

      I asked support twice, but got some seriuous lengthy answers, not making sense. The buttom line was that I could not play poker with the last 7,7 USD.
      Which was what I came for....

      Well from me point of view this is giving 770 a bad rep., which means I am glad I did not deposit any money, and will think twice before doing so.

      Well hope others will not make the same mistake, and being trapped.

      All the best

      Hi Hrandir

      The money is first taken out from your account and the free $10 are taken last and can only be used for the casino.

      I hope htat clears things up
