Mardi Gras Madness at VirginCasino.com
February, the shortest month of the year, certainly has a lot of holidays and celebrations packed into its 28 days. This week we have Fat Tuesday (Marti Gras time) and Valentine’s Day back to back, but for all of you who don’t have a party to go to or other special plans, VirginCasino.com has something you might find even more fun. Not only on Fat Tuesday, but through Thursday, February 15, you can fatten your online account with 10x V Points! That’s why the casino calls this special promotion Mardi Gras Madness!
How to Participate in the VirginCasino.com Mardi Gras Madness Promotion
This promotion, which started Monday, February 12, runs through Thursday, February 15 only. It is open to all registered VirginCasino.com players.
No deposit is required, and you can play any casino games you wish. But in order to be eligible for 10x V points, you will need to meet the casino’s specified minimum wagering requirements. These requirements vary as follows, depending on which game you select:
- 90 Ball Bingo: $15
- Slots: $40
- All Other Games $100 (includes Video Poker, Table Games, or Keno)
How Many V Points Can You Earn in the Mardi Gras Madness Promotion?
While this promotion is in effect, for every $15 wagered on 90 Ball Bingo, $40 wagered on slots, or $100 wagered on any other game, you will receive 10 V points. Therefore, if your total wagers during the promotion were to amount to $150 for Bingo, or $400 for slots, or $1,000 for any other game, you would earn 100 V points.
Ordinarily, you would only receive 1 V point for every $15 wagered on bingo, $40 wagered on slots, or $100 wagered on other games, so this is a good deal.
The maximum possible number of V points that can be earned from this promotion is 10,000 (convertible to $100 in Bonus Money). All V points earned during this promotion will be credited to players’ accounts on Saturday, February 17 (or by Monday, February 19 in the event of technical difficulties).
Converting V Points to Bonus Money
Once you receive your V points, you can convert them into Bonus Money. Go to www.VirginCasino.com/#/vpoints, which will take you to the V Points page on the website. Then follow the instructions for converting your V points to Bonus Money.
Mardi Gras Promotion Bonus Money Wagering Requirements
Any Bonus Money resulting from the conversion of V points earned in this promotion is subject to the same terms and conditions as Bonus Money that players at this casino receive in any other manner. Before you will be permitted to withdraw any bonus-related winnings, you will need to wager the bonus 1x. Any game can be used for this purpose, and you have up to 30 days. However, once the wagering is completed, you will only be able to withdraw your winnings (if any) from the bonus and not the bonus itself. The bonus reverts back to the casino and is never withdrawable.
Is the VirginCasino.com Mardi Gras Promotion Worth Your Time?
This promotion offers an easy way to earn extra V points. Therefore, if you have an account at Virgin Online Casino and it is convenient for you to play this week, you should take the casino up on its offer. Unfortunately, the rate of conversion from V Points to Bonus Money is only $.01, which is extremely low. Therefore, even with the 10x V Points promotion, you would still need to bet a sizable amount of money to get more than a token bonus. In the example given above, the player would get 100 V points, which translates into a mere $1 in Bonus Money. Then you have to wager the bonus and hope you win because as soon as you bet the bonus once, it is taken away from you.
This offer would be a lot better if you could get comp dollars free and clear. However, a small bonus is still better than no bonus.
