Best way to clear Bovada casino chips bonus?

Bovada is running a WSOP qualifier promotion where they give free casino chips in return for playing in WSOP qualifiers. It seems like a good deal, but I've never played their casino games. I don't know perfect blackjack either. But I'm wondering what might be the best game on there to clear the bonus chips.

Here is what they wrote to me to my question to clarify:

"In answer to your question, once you win [it's actually just play in one, they made a mistake] in a WSOP qualifier and earn Casino chips, you can use your Casino chips to play in our Casino channel. These Casino chips you earn will have a rollover requirement of 3x in Spots, 20x in Casino and 3 Poker Points per dollar earned in Poker. Once you have met the rollover requirement, that is the only time that you can cash them so you can use them to play Poker."

Any thought on an easy way to clear these? Much obliged.

Probably following a blackjack chart. It's really easy.

Their rollover req's are crazy.
BJ is a good way if u dont get 7 card 21'ed over and over.

Ive cleared with slots and BJ but ran good at both

Play blackjack, single deck if possible. Usually the lowest house edge game in the casino. Almost a coin flip.

You'll find them at the left side of the page:

Choose your strategy according to the rules of the game (they usually show in the betting table, but search for the rules if you have to). Either way, it's not a huge difference if you get a slightly wrong card.

If you want to minimize variance, play the lowest hand possible.

Re: Best way to clear Bovada casino chips bonus?

Thanks for the replies. It seems I can't activate the next WSOP bonus unless I clear this $15 one first. Thing is, single deck blackjack has a minimum limit of $25. Like, wtf?? It says I have insufficient funds to play, so I'm looking for something else. European blackjack has a minimum of $1, but I don't even know if that's low enough to have low variance to clear this.

I saw that joker poker has a 100.5% payout at bovada, but I think that's much higher variance than blackjack. I might have to do European blackjack, then?

Play in some of their casino games don't count towards the rollover, and I believe single deck blackjack is one of them.

FWIW I'm 1 for 1 in clearing it playing $1 blackjack.

Re: Best way to clear Bovada casino chips bonus?

Lost the first $15 freebie
Ran second one up to $165
Took out $65. Bought weekly match to $100 for $100. 40 times rollover wtf includes my $100 as well, so must play $8k to clear. It was a 3 day effort but cracked through earlier today with $265! Took out $165 . Now down to $30 now and hoping to make another run.

Solid Basic BlackJack Strategy combined with this progression I found in an old Magazine (1963 Datamation, original geek publication!)

Re: Best way to clear Bovada casino chips bonus?

Got the $15 casino chip today. Played through $300 in a few hours of 25c/50c jacks or better video poker. I had $40 in casino chips after I was able to cashout. Went to the roulette table and put $1 on Red 19, and hit it for 35:1 odds, haha. Instacashed the $75 into my available balance.

$15 --> $75 in about 2 hours will be a cool way for me to lose it all betting on baseball.
