Eight of the nine Atlantic Casino casinos, including Tropicana, have reopened. So despite the reduced capacity, social distancing, no indoor dining or drinking, and other restrictions, that means more fun for everyone.
Meanwhile, something else you can count on every weekend of the year, even if you can’t get to Atlantic City, is an exciting new promotion from Tropicana Online Casino. And this weekend–Fri, July 10 through Sun., July 12–the casino has come up with an especially attractive offer. It’s an opportunity to win big bucks in a spectacular $10,500 bonus money prize draw!
To enter, just play at Tropicana Online Casino
On Mon., July 13, the casino will hold a random drawing to decide which 560 lucky players will each win a share of the $10,500 bonus money prize pool.
The period for earning entries started at 12:01 a.m. on Fri., July 10, and continues all weekend long until 11:59 p.m. Sun., July 12. Play any game you wish, as all games count.
Who is eligible to participate in this promotion?
For starters, you must be age 21 or older and be a registered player to play at this NJ online casino. You don’t necessarily have to be a resident of New Jersey. However, keep in mind that during the entire time of your play, you must be physically situated in New Jersey.
Unfortunately, residents of New York, Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, or Puerto Rico are not eligible to participate.
How many entries can you earn?
Assuming you are eligible, you can earn entries for the drawing all weekend long.
For every $50 you wager on any game on any given day of the promotion, you will earn one drawing entry, up to a maximum of five entries per day if your total wagering for that day equals $250 or more.
Therefore, if you play all three days and wager $250 each day, you will earn a total of 15 entries, which is the maximum number possible. However, if this is more wagering than you can comfortably afford or have time for, don’t worry. In a random drawing like this, anything can happen, and with 550 names being drawn, you have an excellent chance to win a prize even with fewer entries.
Of course, many players will have 15 entries, so that will improve your chances. But the one thing you should not do is step up your play beyond your comfort zone. Especially, for this drawing, where the bulk of the prizes are small and, in all cases, you cannot keep the bonus itself, but only the winnings, it simply isn’t worth the risk.
However, each day you play, it is pointless to bet less than $50. That is the minimum amount you can wager on any given qualifying day for your wagers that day to count. You cannot carry play over from one day to the next.
What can you win in this giveaway?
On Mon., July 13, all of the entries earned by each player will be entered in a drawing from which Tropicana Online Casino will randomly pick the 560 winners. All prizes will be in the form of non-redeemable bonus money credited to the player’s account. The prizes will be distributed as follows:
|# of Winners||Prize|
|10||$100 Bonus Money|
|50||$50 Bonus Money|
|200||$20 Bonus Money|
|300||$10 Bonus Money|
If your name is selected, you will be notified via email, and your bonus will be credited to your account within 24 hours of the drawing (or within three business days in the event of technical difficulties).
Additional wagering requirements
Upon receipt of your bonus, you have up to 30 days to wager the bonus 1x on any game.
As soon as you meet this minimal wagering requirement, you are free to withdraw the resulting winnings.
However, this bonus works exactly the same way as any other bonus that players at both Tropicana and its sister NJ gambling website, Virgin Casino, receive. You can only keep the winnings from wagering the bonus, not the bonus itself.
Unfortunately, if you win, you won’t be able to bet the bonus again to try to win more. As soon as you finish wagering it once, the bonus is removed from your account permanently. You never see it again.
The bottom line
Like all bonuses, this one comes with both advantages and disadvantages.
What could be better
The main shortcomings are the same ones associated with all of this casino’s bonuses. Since you can only wager the bonus one time, if you get lucky and win, the casino won’t give you the opportunity to keep betting to try to capitalize on what could be the start of a prolonged winning streak.
Another disappointment is that you can’t keep the bonus. You can only keep the resulting winnings, which further limits the amount of money you can win.
Lastly, 500 of the 550 prizes in this giveaway are only for $10 or $20. That gives you very little room to try to garner a meaningful win after you bet it once and the bonus is then taken away from you.
If this promotion didn’t also come with some offsetting features, I wouldn’t waste my time telling you about it or your time suggesting you give it a try. But luckily for you, entering this drawing in the hope of winning a prize is worth your time, and here are the reasons why.
It’s a promotion that almost any player can afford.
Unlike many other NJ online casino promotions, this one is easily accessible to most players. As long as you wager at least $50 on at least one of the three days of the promotion, you will be entered in the drawing for a chance to win a prize. You certainly don’t need to be a high roller.
Very reasonable cap on the number of entries per person
In fact, to ensure that the biggest players don’t dominate the field by racking up a disproportionate number of entries, Tropicana limits the number of entries per person to just five per day. Of course, those who typically bet more than $250 per day are still welcome to do so, but they won’t receive any extra entries.
Many drawings only award a handful of prizes, and the overwhelming majority of participants walk away empty-handed. This drawing gives you 560 chances to win!
Last, but certainly not least, unlike most NJ online casino bonuses, the bonus money prizes in this drawing come with no further risk to your bankroll whatsoever. Instead of being required to wager the bonus many times and risk your own money in the process, you only wager it once–at the casino’s expense.
In the worst-case scenario, you lose, but you still wind up with the same amount of money you started with before you got the bonus.
In the best-case scenario, you not only win playing during the promotion period but win again when you bet the bonus money you receive in the drawing.
Upon weighing the pros and cons, I think you will agree that giving this promotion a shot will not only be fun but will be worth your time.
