New Jersey gamblers who have received a loyalty punch card from a retail or food chain will be immediately familiar with the latest endeavor from 888 Casino, Gift Card – only difference being that instead of receiving a discount coupon or free sandwich for repeat purchases, the online casino operator is awarding players cold hard cash.
888 Casino’s Gift Card
The inner workings of Gift Card are fairly straightforward. Casino patrons who make a qualifying deposit of $40 or more from October 20 – November 1 using the promotional code STAMP will receive a virtual gift card.
On every card will be 10 icons, each of which can be stamped. 888 Casino will take the luxury of stamping the first one, as a personalized way of saying “thank you” for opting in. From there on out, gamblers will receive daily challenges, which typically consist of engaging in casino play, via personalized email.
Complete a challenge, receive another stamp.
The beauty of the challenges is that they are tailored to your prior play. Thus, recreational gamblers should have just a great a chance of filling up their card as the most dedicated slot and table game players.
Casino patrons that receive at least three stamps will be eligible for an immediate cash bonus, as follows:
Three stamps: $8 bonus
Six stamps: $15 bonus
Ten stamps: $30 bonus
In addition, players making their first qualifying deposit will be eligible for a 100% match bonus up to $300. And yes, players can opt-in to both promotions simultaneously.
If there’s one drawback to Gift Card, it’s that the bonus wagering requirements are on the high side. In order to withdraw bonus funds and any winnings generated from bonus funds, players must play through the bonus 30 times. That’s not insurmountable, especially if playing low house edge games such as BlackJack, but may be too lofty a task for some.
Freebies aren’t just for casino players
Poker players won’t be left out in the blustery autumn chill, as from now until October 30 the online poker arm of 888’s New Jersey-based operation is hosting $1,000 daily freerolls.
Qualifying is as simple as making a eligible deposit of $10 or more using the promo code ONTHEFELT and wagering $10 on casino games or earning 1 Status Point (equivalent to $.50 paid in rake or tournament fees). Patrons who fulfill these meager requirements will receive one ticket to a freeroll event.
Earning subsequent tickets will require completing daily poker challenges. Committed players who complete seven challenges or more will receive a ticket to an exclusive $5,000 freeroll to take place on November 1 at 7:05 pm.
Combined with 888’s regularly occurring casino and poker promotions, there likely isn’t a better time to build a serious bankroll, all for deposits totaling $50.
