Getting free money from poker sites
I don't know what other sites do this (Paradise certainly don't seem to), but when I cashed out all my money from Party, a short time later they put $15 in my account to play with. Since I mainly played cash games, and their minimum stakes were $0.50/$1 limit, $15 wasn't nearly enough for the swings, so I lost that, but it was still a free deposit in my account. I was quite pleased with that.
Now, having not been on there in a while, I've logged in a couple of times to investigate the Omaha games running, and lo and behold they've offered me another $20 without having to make a deposit... that's $35 for absolutely nothing, and I can play on their site with the money without risking anything!
Meanwhile, my brother, who has kept money in there has not been offered anything, so it looks like the way to get the best offers from Party is to register with them, play on there for a while, and then cash your money out... you never know, they may just start giving you money to entice you back. The thing is, having just written that they're one of the possible sites for playing Omaha on at small stakes and above, I may even be tempted to deposit, so their strategy may work... but I thought some of you guys may be interested in knowing how generous one site can be when trying to win back your custom... In the meantime, though, I guess those $5+1 Sit-n-Go's look tempting...
