Caesars Online Holiday Bonus Play Giveaway


Now that the countdown to Christmas is down to single digits, there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day for all the last minute gift shopping and other holiday season must dos. But if you’re a player, better make room at the very top of your to do list for one more thing. Opt into the $25K Caesars Online Holiday Bonus Play Giveaway!

What makes this promotion at Caesars Online Casino a standout is not just the unusually generous size of the prize pool, but also the fact that hundreds of players will all get a share. With 680 prizes up for grabs ranging from $25 bonus dollars to $250 bonus dollars, this massive giveaway is far too good for a player to miss.

How to Opt into the $25,000 Caesars Online Holiday Bonus Play Giveaway

This promotion started on Friday, December 15, but you still have either today, Sunday, December 17, or tomorrow, December 18, to opt in and get your name included in next Thursday’s drawing. Here are the steps you need to follow.

  • Log into your account anytime between now and 11:59 p.m. Monday, December 18.
  • Click on “My Account” and then on “My Bonuses.”
  • Enter the code DEC25K and click on “Get Details.”
  • Look for the words “25K Bonus Play Giveaway” under “Available Bonuses.” Then click on “Deposit” next to the bonus.
  • Make a deposit of $10 or more.
 Additional Notes

As soon as you make your deposit, you will automatically receive one entry into the drawing. Note that you can deposit as little as $10, and depositing more than that will not earn you extra entries or otherwise improve your chances in the drawing. So there is really no reason to make a larger deposit unless your account balance is very low and you need more money to make your usual wagers.

This promotion can only be opted into once and every participant gets one and only one entry. Deposits made at the Caesars Atlantic City casino cashier’s cage or via PayNearMe don’t count.

How Much Can You Win in the Caesars Online Holiday Bonus Play Giveaway?

After making your deposit, you will have to be patient a couple of days because the actual drawing to determine the winners will not take place until Thursday, December 21. Until that time, whether or not you play on the site is entirely up to you. Prior to the drawing, no wagering is required, and whether or not you do any betting between now and the day of the drawing will have no effect on the drawing outcome.

The following matrix shows the distribution of prizes. All prizes are in the form of bonus play, which will be added to the winning players’ accounts the same day.

Prize Matrix:

Winners Prize Estimated Value
5 winners $250 bonus play $1,250
50 winners $100 bonus play $5,000
125 winners $50 bonus play $6,250
500 winners $25 bonus play $12,500
  TOTAL $25,000


Bonus Money Wagering Requirements

All prizes must be claimed no later than December 30, 2017 and are subject to the following wagering requirements:

  •  Slots: 5x bonus
  • Video Poker: 10x bonus
  • All Other Games: 25x bonus

While the bonus playthrough is in progress, both the bonus and any associated winnings are locked into the player’s account and unavailable for withdrawal. However, you will be able to withdraw both the bonus, or whatever is left of it, plus any winnings as soon as the wagering requirements are met, provided it is within the 7 day allotted time frame. Any attempted premature withdrawal or failure to complete the wagering on time will result in both the bonus and any winnings therefrom being forfeited.

What Makes the $25,000 Caesars Online Bonus Play Giveaway a Great Promotion

If you play online at multiple casinos, you are probably inundated with special offers this time of year and don’t have time to access all of them. However, this promotion not only stands out from the pack, but you only have until tomorrow to opt in before the offer is history. Here are the reasons why, if you’re a player, entering the $25K Caesars Bonus Play Giveaway is a no brainer.

Massive 25K Giveaway with 680 Prizes

Because this promotion includes a drawing rather than a guaranteed bonus, not everyone who participates will receive something. But more often than not, guaranteed bonuses are either very small or come with a hefty deposit and wagering requirement.

At the other extreme, are all the drawings with only one winner or a handful of winners. This leaves the overwhelming majority of players with absolutely nothing at all to show for their participation.

The combination here of a massive $25K prize pool and 680 winners eliminates both of these problems. And because the prize pool is so large, none of the prizes are skimpy. Instead of the smallest prize being a nearly useless $5 or $10 in bonus play, the smallest prize is $25 in bonus play.

Only One Entry Per Person, So  Every Player Has an Equal Chance

Many drawings allow multiple entries based on play. As long as a reasonable cap is placed on the total number of entries any one player can have, this rule is fair. However, when the number of entries per person is unlimited, the drawing becomes so skewed in favor of those who can afford to deposit and wager thousands of dollars per day that no one else has a realistic chance.

This promotion only requires a $10 deposit and no advance play whatsoever, so anyone can qualify. Entering also only takes a couple of minutes of your time. No need to spend hours playing or wager more than you can afford to rack up additional entries since each player is allowed one entry only. As soon as you log in and make your $10 deposit with the indicated promotion code, you are entered. What happens next is up to the luck of the draw.

Reasonable Terms and Conditions for Clearing the Bonus

If you’re lucky enough to win a prize–and with 680 winners, there’s a very good chance–you have a whole week to meet the casino’s wagering requirements. You can also play any game or combination of games. However, if you choose a game other than slots, the wagering requirements increase from 5x the bonus to 10x the bonus for video poker and 25x the bonus for any other game. A good strategy if you prefer not to rely on slots for all of your play is to clear the bonus partly with blackjack or video poker and partly with slots.


The current Caesars Online Holiday Bonus Play Giveaway is one of the best offers of the holiday season. Entering is a piece of cake, and handling the wagering requirements should not be a problem either for most players.

What could be a problem though if your bankroll is limited is the long waiting period (at least three days) between the day you enter the drawing and the day of the drawing itself. The casino is expecting most people to play during the interim, but if you would rather not, that is perfectly fine. Small players are strongly advised to make their qualifying deposit the $10 minimum to reduce the temptation to overbet during the waiting period.

Otherwise, I like everything about this promotion. Kudos to Caesars Online Casino for once again delivering an outstanding offer.
