New Jersey Online Casinos Are Paying You To Be Greedy On Groundhog Day

Barbara Nathan Updated on February 2, 2016

Will New Jersey have six more weeks of winter?

Even if the groundhog says yes, who cares when you can stay warm and comfy indoors playing your favorite online slots and getting your greedy hands on not one, not two, but four big fat Groundhog Day bonuses!

Groundhog Day Bonus at Tropicana Online Casino

This New Jersey online casino Groundhog Day special promotion started a day early, on February 1, but there is still plenty of time to reap the rewards because the promotion doesn’t end until February 3 at 11:59 p.m.

Simply make a net deposit (defined as the total amount deposited less any withdrawals) amounting to $50 or more during the promotion period and wager at least that amount once to earn a 10% match bonus up to $100. Note that in order to get the maximum bonus of $100, your deposit must be at least $1,000. If that is more than you can afford, deposit less and take a smaller bonus.

Keep in mind that the bonus you receive is for play purposes only. The bonus can be used on any games on the website, but must be played through at least once before you can withdraw any associated winnings. The bonus itself is not withdrawable and expires after 30 days.

Groundhog Day Replay at Virgin NJ online casino

Now that you know how to snag a Groundhog Day bonus of up to $100, why stop there? Virgin Casino is offering up to $75 more in bonus money. This promotion also started a day early, on February 1, but extends all the way through Thursday, February 4.

All you have to do is log on and wager at least $50. If you win, great, but even if you lose, you have another shot because the casino will give you 10% back on any net losses in bonus money up to $75. The downside is that in order to get a $75 bonus, you would have to lose $750, and it would take an extraordinary stroke of luck to get it all back with just $75.

On the other hand, you could simply wager the required $50. Even if you lose it all, it isn’t terrible because you still qualify for a $5 bonus.

The bonus is for play purposes only. In order to be able to withdraw any winnings, you need to play through the bonus at least 1x on any game. The bonus itself is not withdrawable and expires after 30 days.

Shadow or no, $25 is yours at Resorts Online Casino in NJ

While others are  making friendly wagers whether or not Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow February 2, we have a better suggestion. Bet on a sure thing instead like whether simply logging onto your account at ResortsCasino.com will get you a $25 bonus. Actually the bonus is 100 percent guaranteed provided you follow a few simple steps.

Here is what you have to do to collect:

  1. Sign into your account anytime on February 2.
  2. Click on Coupons in the left menu bar.
  3. Enter the coupon code PHIL. Then click Get Details and follow the instructions.

You have until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, February 4 to rack up 500 Reward Points playing your favorite games online, at which point you will receive your $25 bonus.

But wait. Don’t go running to the cashier just yet. The bonus has its own playthrough requirement for withdrawal. While all games count, the wagering requirements are only 5x the bonus for slots, but 25x the bonus for video poker and table games.

As soon as the necessary wagering has been completed, both the bonus and any associated winnings are yours to keep!

Groundhog Guaranteed Bonus Day at Borgata Casino online

We saved what could be the best NJ online casino bonus of all for last. But maybe you should grab this one first because besides being available on Groundhog Day (February 2) only, all of the necessary wagering must also be completed on February 2.

Sign into your BorgataCasino.com account any time that day. Then click on the Promotion tab and opt in to the Groundhog Day Guaranteed Bonus promotion. Then open your special Groundhog Day card to reveal your bonus.

There are no losers in this promotion. Everybody is guaranteed some sort of a bonus, and while it could be a small one, it could be as much as $1,000!

Before the end of the day you will need to play through the bonus, whatever it happens to be, 1x on any slot game. You must play slots; no other game counts. In addition to earning regular loyalty points on this wagering, here is the best part: As soon as you complete the playthrough, you not only get to keep all of your winnings, but the bonus, too!

Of the four bonuses we described, the Borgata bonus, besides having the potential to be the largest by far, clearly offers the best value. For starters, all you have to do to get it is log on to your account. No additional deposit is necessary, nor do you have to lose or earn a certain number of points to get the bonus.

Then as soon as you complete the very modest playthrough, the bonus is yours with no further ado! That is much better than simply receiving a bonus to play with temporarily, only to have the casino take it back. Lastly, as any slot player knows, fantastic things sometimes happen when they are least expected. One such possibility would be winning a $1,000 bonus and then hitting a progressive jackpot on top of it!
