      Stars appear to have announced today (at least I didn't see it yesterday) that by depositing between now and 15th August you can have a 50% reload bonus up to $300!!!

      And if you cant deposit the full amount straight away you get 90 days to make 2 more deposits while the time to clear the bonus from the original deposit is 6 months!!

      There's a brand new first deposit bonus with the same multi deposit scenario.

      SO i just sung $600 dollars for the full $300, does this mean i can then deposit again for another bonus, or am i completely misunderstanding this?

      No as I read it you can only deposit a maximum of $600 to get $300 of bonus. It's just if you can't spare $600 right now you can deposit a smaller portion then reload again up to twice more within 90 days to make it up to the full $600/$300.If it's not clear:-

      is there anything to stop me, withdrawing $300 of bankroll, waiting a few days and then re-depositing it to activate the bonus??

      ^ yes you won't receive the bonus that way

      Imo this bonus is a bit stupid, you need 7500 VPPs for $300...... that's a lot. Sure, you get 6 months to clear it, but that just seems to me like they're trying to make you stay as long as possible ;)

      Buuut still, getting a reload bonus at stars is pretty nice afterall - but I won't be getting it this time =)

      Usually any withdrawals before depositing cancel reload bonus, so if you cash out you loose your chance to claim the bonus later.

      I think we can still make account transfer, so we just need a friend.

      Anyone know for sure if we withdraw and then re-deposit that we can claim this bonus?

      i don't think you can withdraw and re-deposit.

      What you can do however is, deposit the minimum by this weekend's cutoff date.

      And you have 90 more days before you find the rest of the money to claim the full 300 dollar bonus.

      okay, so another scenario,

      If i leave my current Bankroll in (its about $310), and deposit another £100 or something, at what point can I then cash some back into my bank without it affecting the bonus?

      After u clear the bonus

      100 British pounds = 169.92 U.S. dollars
      170 / 2 = 85
      85 * 25 = 2 125

      So u have 6 month to get 2125 VPP and u only can withdraw after getting the bonus released

      cheers

      I'm getting a 50 bucks bonus as (50 * 25 = 1 250) it seems a lot doable in 6 month time!! (that's 7 VPPs per day...)

      P.S. Better play in the safe side but u can get at least some bonus ;)

      from link posted by morris979:

      Player deposits $58. He gets $29 of pending bonus that will release when he earns 25 x 29 = 725 VPPs. He has 6 months to clear this instalment. If he cashes out after making this deposit no further deposits will count, even if they are made in the deposit period. He will still be able to earn the first $29.

      I think You can withdraw deposited $$ immediatelly

      It's about time stars did this... got my $300... and 7500 FPP isn't that bad, works out to about 20% rakeback, and given that yo can still use those points :f_thumbsup:
