      Hi Petterix,

      Did you try contact Coral support? i think they can give you the best answer.. i would assume they mean total stake but best to ask them to be sure

      I'm sorry for not testing this last week (I wanted to play in the last few hours of the week but felt discouraged at least). I'll tell you how much they pay and under what rules if I lose this week.

      My conjecture is that the 'total stake' is either of the following:

      1) the total amount lost (or 0 if you've won in total).
      2) the low point (i.e. if you lost €200 but then won €500, then your total stake is €200).

      I hope it's 2). If you go on a losing streak of 5 tourneys, then the total buy-in (€50) will be your stake - the total amount of own money you've risked. If you however go on a winning streak, your subsequent buy-ins will be funded by money won from others, not by your own risked money.

      However, the usual terms of casino cashback across the industry say that one gets either x% of the net loss or nothing if one has won.

      In any case, I don't think it has anything to do with the total buy-in or the total rake (otherwise the promotion would be too generous, I reckon it returns 5-15% of the rake back on average depending on one's skill, surely a bigger % to worse players, as far as I've calculated, obviously having the €10s in mind).

      Just to let others know, after playing 133 (from UK 1:00 last Monday to UK 0:59 this Monday) €10 Twisters and scoring exactly 50 wins, I've received 26x€10 Twister tokens, which is pretty much 20% of the total buy-in, so the 'total stake' somehow means the total BI :f_drink:

      Another question is whether the total BI is calculated for the entire week or only up to the moment of the 50th win; obviously, I've had no chance to learn this from my experience yet. I think I still need to ask them.

      I wonder how they're expecting to profit with this promo. Apparently they think that their Twister players are so bad on average that their ROI as a whole is below -30%.

      Oh, I didn't notice the recent change in the T&C of the promotion that answers my own question:
      2. As from Monday 20th July stake back will be credited in multiples of €10 twister tokens for high stakes and €2 twister tokens for Low stakes capped at €500 per player.

      9. Players will only qualify for token once passed the Twister token threshold example €455 stakes back will be credited as 45x €10 Twister Tokens
      This is still really awesome because the first 250 €10 (or 500 €5) tourneys a week get a huge rakeback boost.

      The promotion has been discontinued from this week on (because it was clearly making Coral bleed money), but the tokens for last week's play (including the weekend, which was already August) have still been awarded :f_drink:

      The promotion doubling the 1st place prize in a 1000x €1-2 Twister played on Saturday or Sunday (UTC) is still running :f_thumbsup:

      Is there a similar (or any) promotions on other skins for Twister?

      I can't find any (if you mean promotions for hardcore grinders, not the Boost freerolls that are network-wide). It's autumn and the traffic is going up anyway, so there's no need for rooms to be that generous and they cut promotions at this time of the year.
