Why offer a bonus then hide crucial info like "sign up bonuses are not available to residents of WA, NSW, Vic & SA" in a small box that 90% of customers do not see. T&Cs are so full of useless info, not many people bother to read them. They obviously know people are being sucked in, and when we realise no bonus is forthcoming they deny us the chance to withdraw our funds until we have turned them over.
How about in block letters on the deposit page, "BONUS NOT AVAILABLE TO WA,............." so anyone making a 1st deposit can not miss it.
Basically the bonus is only available to about 20% of the population. SUX.
