March Madness $50K promo on BetStars

Q: So far, I’m loving the NCAA Tournament and the fact you can bet n the games in NJ this year.  I read about one of the NJ online sportsbooks running a promo for March Madness last week. Got any others?

I sure do. Several NJ online sportsbooks are running free bracket contests and other promos.

BetStars NJ joined March Madness offering a $10 free bet on long shots. All one needed to do was bet $20 on any No. 2 seed or lower to win the NCAA championship, and they’d get a $10 free bet for every round they advanced through.

The madness continues with BetStars’ Bet Three, Get One Free promotion. This one sees any $10 bet on any three March Madness points spread markets get a $10 free bet.

Now, through the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight this weekend, BetStars is offering various odds boosts and the chance to get in a $50,000 guaranteed sports betting tournament for free.

The $50K GTD Final Big Game promotion runs March 28 through April 7. To get in, you’ve got to opt-in. Then, bet at least $500 on basketball through April 7, including the NCAA Tournament, and you’ll get free entry to the BetStars tournament.

The $50K GTD Final Big Game tournament will play out beginning at 6 p.m. on April 7 and BetStars will provide details in advance to anyone earning free entry.

Plus, there may be even more heading into the Final Four and the Championship Game. Stay tuned to BetStars NJ to find out.

And remember, sign up for a new account through our exclusive BetStars NJ link and you can claim up to $500 in free bets as well.

Risk-Free Gambling On Virgin

Q: I’ve been going to casinos in Atlantic City for 20 years,  but I’ve never gambling online. I know I can trust these sites because they’re run by the casinos in AC, but is there any chance I can try before I buy? I’d love to try a little online gambling without the risk.

Good question! The truth is that most NJ online casinos offer demos of the games you can try for free. Plus, many run new sign-up offers and promotions where you can gamble a little without taking any major risks.

Right out of the gate, I’d recommend giving Virgin Online Casino a try. It runs under Tropicana‘s license and if your an AC vet like me, you’re certainly familiar with The Trop.

Sign up for Virgin Casin using our exclusive promo code 25BUCKS and you’ll get $25 free and up to $100 cashback on your first deposit.

The good thing with Virgin is that there is only a one-time wagering requirement on that $25. Plus, you can play any game on the site to get through it.

Then, of course, there’s Virgin’s cashback program. The site will refund you up to $100 if you lose that much playing there in the first week.

This is about as risk-free as gambling can get.

Want to take it to the extreme end of risk-free? Virgin has a single-deck blackjack with a best in the business RTP of 99.87 percent. Play that to clear the bonus and it’s hard to lose.
