Frosty Fun at Trop Online and Atlantic City
One of the many reasons why TropicanaCasino.com is a such a fun site to play on is that this NJ online casino is continually surprising its players with exciting new promotions. Not a week goes by that this casino doesn’t come up with at least a couple of new offers that make you want to stop whatever you’re doing and seize the opportunity before it’s gone. This week’s Frosty Fun promotion, which is perfect for mid-winter, is a great example.
When and How to Participate in the Frosty Fun Giveaway Promotion
In order to participate in the TropicanaCasino.com Frosty Fun promotion, you must be a registered TropicanaCasino.com player and have access to the NJ online casino games. New Jersey residence is not required, but residents of the following areas are excluded: New York, Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico.
Assuming you are eligible to take part in the Frosty Fun promotion, here’s what you need to know. The promotion started on Monday, January 29 and continues all week long through Super Bowl Sunday. You can earn entries into next Monday’s prize drawing simply by playing your favorite Tropicana online games throughout the week.
How to Earn Extra Entries
You can increase your chances of winning with additional play. For every $50 wagered on any game on a single calendar day, you earn one entry, up to a maximum of five entries per day if your day’s wagers total $250 or more.
Therefore, the maximum number of entries possible is 35, based on wagering $250 or more and earning five entries daily on all seven days of the promotion. Or, if you your first day of play is Tuesday or Wednesday, rather than Monday, you can still earn a lot of entries, up to 30 or 35, respectively.
Limit Your Wagers to What You Can Afford
On the other hand, if earning the maximum number of entries puts a strain on your time or budget, you should limit your play to what you can comfortably afford and not exceed that amount. All together, 91 players will win prizes in the Frosty Fun drawing, so you have plenty of opportunities to win even without anywhere near the maximum number of entries.
What Kinds of Frosty Fun Prizes Can You Win?
On Monday, February 5, the casino will hold a random drawing to decide all of the winners. The top prize will be a two night stay at the Tropicana in Atlantic City and a $200 slot credit. Only two lucky players will win that prize. However, 89 other players will win a share of $5,000 in Bonus Money!
The following chart shows how the various prizes will be distributed. With the exception of the two top prizes of a two night stay at the Trop, all other prizes are in the form of Bonus Money credited to the player’s account. The lowest Bonus Money prize is $20 and the highest is $250.
|# of Prizes||Prize|
|2||A two (2) night stay at the Trop and a $200 slot credit.|
|4||$250 Bonus Money|
|5||$200 Bonus Money|
|10||$100 Bonus Money|
|20||$50 Bonus Money|
|50||$20 Bonus Money|
When and How to Claim Your Prize
All prizewinners will be notified via email within 24 hours of the drawing (or three business days in the event of technical difficulties). Winning players then have up to 14 calendar days to claim their prize. All prizes are non-exchangeable and non-transferable.
Additional Terms and Conditions for the Grand Prize
Dates for the Tropicana Atlantic City stay are subject to availability, and certain dates such as holiday weekends may be blocked off. Otherwise, whether you choose to go now for a frosty fun winter getaway or wait till the weather is warmer is entirely up to you. But if you do choose a winter getaway, it may actually feel more like a summer vacation because you’ll be able to enjoy all the special amenities of the Tropicana Beach Bash. The Beach Bash continues daily through February 28. See my post of January 26 on this website for the complete details.
Additional Terms and Conditions for the Bonus Money Prize
Winning the top prize is a longshot, so it is much more likely that you’ll win Bonus Money instead. Any Bonus Money won in this drawing works exactly like all other Bonus Money awarded to existing players on either TropicanaCasino.com or sister casino VirginCasino.com. Before you will be permitted to withdraw any winnings from the bonus, the bonus must be wagered 1x. Any game is okay, and you have up to 30 days to complete the wagering. Then, as soon as this tiny wagering requirement is satisfied, you will be able to withdraw any bonus-related winnings, but not the bonus itself. The bonus is “sticky,” meaning that it is offered for wagering purposes only and can never be withdrawn.
Is the Frosty Fun Giveaway at TropicanaCasino.com Worth Your Time?
Large Number of Prizes Gives You a Better Chance to Win
If you’re a TropicanaCasino.com player and it’s convenient for you to play this week, you should definitely participate in this promotion. Not only are both the top prize and the Bonus Money prizes clearly worth playing for; due to the relatively large number of prizes being offered, your chances of winning are much better than in most drawings.
Players at Any Stakes Level Can Participate
Another great feature is that any player can access this promotion. No deposit is required, and theoretically, all it takes is one entry requiring only $50 in a single day’s wagers. Of course, if you play more and earn more entries, you have a better chance to win, but through the luck of the draw, having the maximum number of entries is certainly not necessary. Furthermore, with the cap on the number of entries per person set at a very reasonable five per day, high rollers capable of amassing a ridiculous number of entries won’t be a factor. All players have a chance.
No Risk Bonus
This promotion would be even better if the Bonus Money were redeemable. But the good news is that all of the prizes are potentially large enough to to clear a profit (though probably a small one), even after the bonus is taken away. And you are wagering the bonus with the casino’s money, so even if you don’t win with the bonus, you are not losing any more of your own money.
You have a much better chance of winning Bonus Money in the Frosty Fun giveaway than the top prize of a two night stay at the Trop and $200 in slot credits. But either prize would be a welcome gift for any online casino player
