The Reel Life: Unique bonus edition

10 September 2009

The Reel Life loves creative bonus offers. There are so many gambling sites out there that casinos have to differentiate themselves. Sports cars, Caribbean vacations, free spins for a month. The Reel Life loves them all. But we've never seen an offer like one an Irish bank offered new customers.

According to The Irish Times, the Ulster Bank has withdrawn a promotion where students who were opening a new account were offered tickets to an "exotic" show. The first-year students at Dublin's Institute of Technology Tallaght students were also offered €100 in their student accounts.

The Irish Times says that "Ulster Bank representatives had been handing out tickets for the exotic event along with a goodie bag to new student customers."

The bank said in a statement that it withdrew the promotion after realizing what the tickets were for.

"Ulster Bank has no involvement in the organization of this event and once the nature of the event was realized, the bank immediately withdrew any association with the event."

The Reel Life hopes that the first-year students opened their bank accounts early, because this is a can't-miss promotion. If an online casino ever ran a similar one, you can bet we'd put down a hefty deposit.
