'Tis the Season for Bo-Bo-Bonuses

Man. Christmas is definitely coming early for all the bonus hounds out there. I've managed to clear the Party December reload, an Empire account-specific reload (check your accounts as some people got a GET15 reload recently), a couple of Crypto reloads, and about a third of the way through the Gaming Club reload. I've still got the PokerStars one to go, as well as PokerPlex, which I might or might not get to.

I have to say that I'm really liking the Gaming Club changes in regards to bonuses. Bonuses there used to be a bitch to clear but this one is flying by for me with the new changes. Be curious to see if they keep pushing the envelope and offer consistent reloads and other bonus-related promos. I'm not a huge fan of their interface (why the hell are the call/fold/raise check boxes so freaking small?) but they players are pretty dang craptacular, especially at the lower limits.

I've been absolutely killing assorted casino bonuses lately. I realize the pendulum swings both ways, which I guess means I'm in for a horrible streak o' random bad blackjack luck, because I'm making out like a bandit right now. At the moment I'm 5 for 6 with the bigger sticky bonuses, which works out to a nice chunk o' change. It'd be nice if one of the poker sites/casinos got a little more aggressive and expanded into offering interest-bearing accounts (which Party actually used to do, back in the day) as I'd jump on that in a heartbeat, even for a nominal interest rate, as opposed to simply letting cash set in my Neteller account.
