If you’re a registered player at either Tropicana or Virgin Online Casino, this is a great week to take advantage of their special offers mentioned in this article. Better yet, if you play at both NJ online casinos, you can get your hands on both bonuses.
Tropicana $20K Flowerpot Sharepot: 4/26-4/29
One sure sign of spring is that flowers are starting to bloom. So why not celebrate this glorious and joyful season with a fun offer from Tropicana Online Casino?
Tropicana thought that the last week of April would be a perfect time to invite all of its players to participate in a Flowerpot Sharepot.
The difference between a Sharepot and a Drawing
Sharepots are a special type of giveaway that Tropicana Online Casino offers periodically that’s different from a drawing. Tropicana and Virgin are currently the only two NJ online casinos that offer them.
The basic difference between a Sharepot and a drawing is that unlike in a drawing, where only a very small percentage of the many participants win a prize, in a Sharepot, everyone who participates is a winner.
No deposit is required. Also, as long as you wager at least the minimum specified amount on at least one day of the promotion, a piece of the Sharepot (which gets converted into bonus money) is guaranteed.
In other words, instead of depending on the luck of the draw to see if you’re a winner or not, you can relax because you know that a prize is coming your way. No one walks away from a Sharepot empty-handed.
Of course, if you only bet the minimum, which entitles you to just one Sharepot ticket, your bonus will be smaller than what players who have wagered substantially more will get, which is only fair. But Tropicana places a very reasonable cap on the total number of Sharepot tickets any individual can earn, regardless of how much they play, Therefore, you don’t have to worry about high rollers hogging the entire pie for themselves and leaving smaller players with just the crumbs.
How the Tropicana $20K Flowerpot Sharepot works
The Tropicana Flowerpot Sharepot is open to all registered players with access to its NJ online casino.
This promotion began on Mon., April 26, 2021. But if you missed the opening day, don’t worry about it. All of your play until 11:59 p.m. on Thurs., April 29 also counts.
Unlike some of the casino’s previous Sharepots which had a prize pool of $10,000, this one has a $20,000 prize pool. This is great because the individual prizes are larger.
But one downside is that instead of awarding you a Sharepot share for each $50 in wagers on a given day, Tropicana now requires you to wager $100.
How to participate in the Tropicana Flowerpot Sharepot
If you wish to participate, here is what you need to do on at least one of the four days of the promotion, but if possible, on all four days.
Wager $100 or more on any online casino games of your choosing.
For every $100 that you wager on any given qualifying day, you will receive one Sharepot ticket, up to a maximum of five tickets all together, if you wager a total of $500 or more.
Therefore, if you play all four days and wager $500 each day, you will earn 20 Sharepot tickets, which is the maximum number possible. If you play two days and wager $500 per day, you will earn 10 tickets. If you only play one day, provided you wager at least $100, you will earn 1-5 tickets, depending on how much you play.
If $500 per day is more than you can comfortably afford, don’t force it. Play within your budget and be content with whatever the casino gives you in return, even if the bonus is very small. However, keep in mind that you cannot carry play over from one day to the next. Therefore, you must wager at least $100 on any given day. Otherwise, that day’s play won’t count at all.
How Tropicana Online Casino will determine your bonus
Before you can receive your bonus, the casino needs to determine how to distribute the total $20,000 prize pool fairly to each of the participants. Therefore, on Fri., April 30, Tropicana will do the following:
- Add up the total number of tickets earned by each player.
- Determine the total number of tickets for all of the players combined.
- Divide each player’s total by the grand total to get a percentage.
- Multiply each individual percentage by $20,000 (the size of the Sharepot).
The last amount is the amount of bonus money each player will receive.
For example, let’s say you earn 10 Sharepot tickets while all of the players combined earn 10,000 Sharepot tickets. That would make your percentage of the total .10%. The amount of your bonus would then be $20,000 x .0010 or $20.
When will you get your bonus from Tropicana?
You will probably receive your bonus on Mon., May 3. But you should allow up to three business days in case of technical difficulties.
Wagering requirements for the bonus
The bonus money you receive from the Flowerpot Sharepot is subject to the same terms and conditions as all other Tropicana Online Casino bonuses you receive as an existing player. You have up to 30 days to wager the bonus 1x on any game you wish. As soon as you do, you may keep any resulting winnings but not the bonus itself.
Virgin Casino Bonus Bonanza
Hardly a week goes by when Tropicana’s sister NJ online casino Virgin Casino doesn’t hold a drawing for a fabulous prize. Whether it’s a vacation, electronics, a gift card to use as you wish, or extra bonus money in your account, it’s something that any player can use.
The only problem, more often than not, is that there are only a handful of winners.
But this week, Virgin Casino is going all out. It’s a celebration of spring that is so big, it will have you rushing to play your favorite games.
The casino is giving away $10,500 in bonus money prizes, including 10 top prizes of $100 bonus money per person,
560 players will all win a share of the prize pool!
How to participate in this week’s Virgin Casino Bonus Bonanza
In order to participate in this week’s $10,500 bonus money giveaway, you must be a registered player at Virgin Casino. New Jersey residence isn’t required, but you do need to have access to the real money games on the Virgin Casino NJ gambling website.
Furthermore, residents of New York, Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico are all excluded.
Assuming you are eligible, the period for earning entries into the upcoming drawing started on Mon., April 26, 2021 and continues all week long until 11:59 p.m. on Sun., May 2, 2021.
You don’t necessarily have to play all seven days, but the more days you play and the more you wager each day, the more entries you will earn into the drawing, so the better your chances.
For every $50 that you wager on any given day of the promotion, you will earn one entry into the drawing, up to a maximum of five entries per day if you wager $250 or more.
Therefore, the maximum number of entries that anyone can earn is 35. But if that will entail more wagering than you can afford or have time for, no problem. Simply do the best you can, and remember that in a random drawing, anything can happen. The luck of the draw can make you a winner even if you don’t have a lot of entries.
But also keep in mind that you cannot carry over your play from one day to the next. So, there is no point in playing on any day when you are not prepared to wager at least $50.
What can you win in the Virgin Casino Bonus Bonanza prize drawing?
The following table shows how the 560 prizes will be distributed.
# of Winners
$100 Bonus Money
$50 Bonus Money
$20 Bonus Money
$10 Bonus Money
No player can win more than one prize. If you’re a winner, you can expect your prize to be credited to your account by Tues., May 4. However, allow up to three business days in case of technical difficulties.
Wagering requirements for the bonus
This is a sticky bonus that works exactly like the Tropicana bonus money prizes. After you meet the 1x bonus wagering requirement, you can keep any winnings but not the bonus itself.
Why this week’s Tropicana and Virgin Online Casino giveaways are worth your time
In both promotions, despite the large size prize pools, the majority of the prizes are small, and on top of that, you can only keep your winnings, not the bonus. So, the likelihood of coming away from either giveaway with a huge win is negligible.
However, the two giveaways are fun and don’t require a huge outlay of money to participate. And best of all, these bonuses are completely risk-free. You only have to wager the bonus once, so it’s with the casino’s money, not your own. You can’t possibly lose any of your own money betting the bonus, like you can with traditional bonuses that you have to wager many times. But you can win!
