  • Once we run out of inventory for a specific game, that game will no longer be available when you go online to make your game selection.
  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

The easiest account to keep fee free is the Grizzlies Basic Checking account, this has a $3 monthly service fee that is waived with eStatements. I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule, so I am unsure if they charge early account termination fees or not.

Our Verdict

I try to get a minimum value of $100 from checking account bonuses, because this is $100 in tickets it doesn’t meet my threshold – especially when they say a full paycheck is required this often means it’s manually checked (and they can always do something annoying like asking for paystub verification). This one is an easy pass in my mind, if anybody does sign up please let us know the usual information.

For Direct Deposits, I think this can probably be merged with the Pinnacle Titans Bank Data point.
