Bonus Blizzard at


More wintry weather is on the way, but players probably couldn’t care less. It seems that the worse the weather, the more special promotions this casino has for you. Although more snow is in the forecast for South Jersey this week, fortunately it is not for another blizzard. But Tropicana Online Casino is taking no chances and giving you plenty of incentive to stay indoors with its brand new Bonus Blizzard offer. This is a Playback Bonus in case you encounter a bad run of luck this week.

In addition, all week long, you can earn entries into the casino’s latest giveaway drawing, where 94 lucky players will win a Tropicana Winter Getaway or Bonus Money! Since all but five of the prizes are for bonus dollars, you might as well get ready and brace yourself for a second Bonus Blizzard!

Bonus Blizzard Round 1 : January 16-18

This promotion, like many others at Tropicana Online Casino, is a Playback Bonus. In fact, the casino describes it as as “Playback Bonus Blizzard.!”

I wouldn’t go that far since the percentage of one’s net loss that the casino will give back as a Playback Bonus is only 15%. Furthermore, like any other blizzard, the far better outcome would be for it not to happen at all. But just in case your luck between today and Thursday isn’t great, it’s nice to know that the casino will give you a bonus to try to recoup a portion of your loss.

How the Bonus Blizzard Promotion Works

This promotion is valid from Tuesday, January 15 through Thursday, January 18 only. In order to qualify for a bonus,  $50 or more must be wagered on one or more of nine designated slot games. If your total wagering on allowed games shows a net loss, the casino will return 15% of your net loss back to you up to $50 in the form of a Playback Bonus.

Minimum and Maximum Bonus Amounts

In order to receive the maximum bonus of $50, your net loss  on eligible games needs to be $333.34 or more. If you lose less than that, your bonus will be prorated accordingly. The minimum bonus you can get is $1. If you win or break even or if your loss is less than $6.67, you will not receive a bonus.

 Eligible Games

Here is the list of eligible games. If you play any other games while the promotion is in effect, how you fare on those games will have no bearing on your eligibility for a bonus.


Select Games
Bubbly Wild
Secrets of the Phoenix
Queen of Winter Wins
Winstones Resort & Casino
Fortune Temple
Queen of the Tree Folk
Sapphire Sorceress
Tiki Island
Tiki Totems


Bonus Money Wagering Requirements

On Friday, January 19 the casino will determine the amount of your bonus, if any,  Qualifying players can expect to see the bonus in their account within 1 to 3 days. Like other bonuses, this one is for wagering purposes only. You have up to 30 days to wager the bonus 1x on any game. Once this wagering is completed, you are free to withdraw any resulting winnings. However, the bonus itself is “sticky” and can never be withdrawn.

Bonus Blizzard Round 2 : January 16-21

Win a Winter Getaway to the Trop or Bonus Money!

This promotion also starts today, Tuesday, January 16, but continues all week long through Sunday, January 21. So you have plenty of time to earn entries into the drawing next Monday.

Five Grand Prize winners will each win a coveted two-night stay at the Tropicana Atlantic City, but that’s not all. They will also receive $200 slot dollars and a $200 restaurant credit!

On the other hand, if you’re not picked to win the Grand Prize, don’t assume just yet that you’re going to walk away from the giveaway empty-handed because this drawing is just getting started! is giving away $5,000 in Bonus Money, too, and 89 players will win a piece of it!

How to Earn Entries into the Tropicana Winter Getaway and Bonus Monday Drawing

In order to earn entries into the drawing, simply play your favorite games. For every $50 wagered on any game on a given day during the promotion, you earn one entry into the drawing, up to a maximum of five entries per day if you wager $250 or more. So if you play all six days of the promotion and wager $250 per day, you will receive 30 entries (the maximum possible). But if this is too much play for you, no problem. Simply wager what you can afford and have time for and let the luck of the draw decide the rest. Because of the large number of prizes, you do not necessarily need a lot of entries to have a good chance to win.

Note that in order to participate in this promotion, you must be a registered player and be able to play online in New Jersey. Residents of New York, Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico are not eligible.

Distribution of Prizes

On Monday, January 22, the casino will hold a random drawing, at which time the 94 prizewinners will be picked. The following table shows how the various prizes will be distributed.


# of Prizes Prize
5 2 Night Stay, $200 Slot Dollars, $200 Restaurant Credit
4 $250 Bonus Money
5 $200 Bonus Money
10 $100 Bonus Money
20 $50 Bonus Money
50 $20 Bonus Money


According to the casino, the Grand Prize is valued at $800. It does not include the cost of travel to the resort or incidentals other than the $250 food credit, and taxes and gratuities. The Bonus Money prizes range from $20 bonus dollars all the way up to $250 bonus dollars. All prizes are non-exchangeable and non-transferable.

Claiming Your Prize

All winners will be notified within three business days of the drawing and will have 14 calendar days to claim their prize.

Dates for the Tropicana Getaway are subject to availability, and certain dates may be blocked off. The slot and dining credits must be used during the same time period as the hotel stay.

All Bonus Money prizes are subject to the usual rules governing bonuses. (See first promotion for details.)


 If is a site you enjoy playing on, this week you can take advantage of two ongoing promotions simultaneously. Hopefully, the only part of the Bonus Blizzard you personally get to experience is the bonus won in the drawing. But in case the slots aren’t delivering a good return between now and Thursday, maybe your luck will turn around with the help of the Playback Bonus.
