      Hi Guys,

      I lost the lot on FT - opened a new account on STARS and won :D

      I opened the account using STARS600 code that allows me to earn a bonus up to $600, however after my experience with FT I am a bit concerned about having $5k+ on STARS.

      I wondered what would happen if I withdrew some of my winnings?

      Would I lose my eligibility for the new deposit bonus?

      Cheers :D

      I'm pretty sure the first bonus will not expire until the time runs out, even if you withdraw the whole lot.

      As for the new bonus.....you can't withdraw and then redeposit. If you want to take advantage of new bonus you need to deposit first and then withdraw.

      For this bonus, you can deposit up to 600$ up to 3 times, for example, you deposit 200$ 3 times. But if you withdraw, you won't get the bonus anymore. So if you deposit 200$ and then another 200$, you have 400$ bonus, but if you withdraw and then deposit another 200$, you won't have the 600$ bonus, you will be "stuck" with the 400$ bonus. So once you withdraw, you can't increase your bonus anymore, that's all. If you already deposited the maximum bonus amount=600$, you can withdraw everything if you want.

      .......

      And thanks for the replies.

      But just to clarify

      I deposited $200.
      Won $5000.
      If I deposit another $400 I get access to the full bonus.

      And then I can take out all my money?

      Sweet :D
