Virgin Online Casino Extra Bonus Days

 

If Virgin Online Casino is one of your favorite places to play online in New Jersey, it will be even more so once you get your hands on the extra bonus money this casino is offering this week.

This Week’s Two Special Promotions

It’s rare that an online casino offers two special bonus earning opportunities at the same time. But that is exactly what  VirginCasino.com is offering its players this week.

Points Picnic is a 10x points multiplier. Simply play your favorite online games like always. But for the duration of the promotion, instead of getting the usual number of V points for your play, you get 10x that number of points. V Points are valuable because they can be converted into bonus money.

Friends with Benefits is the popular ongoing promotion at VirginCasino.com whereby anytime you successfully refer a new player, you receive a bonus–typically $50. However, every so often, and now is one of those times, instead of $50, your first successful new referral is worth $100!

Both promotions started Monday, August 6. However, they don’t end until 11:59 p.m. Thursday, August 9, so you still have time to take advantage of them.

Are you eligible?

These promotions are open to all registered Virgin Online Casino players with access to the NJ website excluding employees of the New Jersey Casino Control Commission or Division of Gambling Enforcement, or Tropicana Atlantic City or any Gamesys owned company.

Amount of Play Required

Assuming you are eligible, all of your play on VirginCasino.com during the August 6-9 promotion period counts (including any play on the site you may have already done this week prior to reading about the promotion here). However, the minimum total wagering required to receive 10x V points is $15 on 90 Ball Bingo, $40 on slots, or $100 on any other game.

If you only wager the minimum, you will receive 10 V points. However, for each multiple of the minimum that you wager, you will receive 10x that multiple of V points, all the way up to a maximum of 10,000 V points, which is worth $100 in bonus money!

Converting V Points to Bonus Money

On Friday, August 10, qualifying players will be notified as to how many V Points they have earned. Once the points are posted to the player’s account (within three business days), go to the V Points page on the casino website, which will show you how to convert the points into bonus money. The basic rule for conversion is to divide the number of V Points by 100.

Is the offer worth your time?

Unfortunately, even with the 10x multiplier, you will have to register a lot of play to receive the maximum bonus: $15,000 for 90 Ball Bingo, $40,000 for slots, or $100,000 for any other game. This is way beyond most players’ capability. So it’s best to look at this promotion realistically and accept the fact your chances of walking away with a big bonus are extremely slim.

Probably, when all is said and done, your bonus will only amount to $5 or less. This is very little, especially since like all other VirginCasino.com bonuses, it is not yours to keep. After you wager it once, you can only keep the winnings, not the bonus itself.

On the other hand, as long as you are going to be playing at Virgin Online Casino this week anyway, you might as well earn the extra V points and resulting bonus that the casino is offering you. The one thing you should not do, however, is step up your play way beyond what you can afford and are comfortable wagering just to earn more V points. Then the letter V could take on a whole new disastrous meaning–vanishing bankroll! Instead, your object should be to extract the limited value of this promotion and hope it can work to your advantage while wagering within your means.

Virgin Online Casino Friends With Benefits

This is by far the better of this week’s two featured promotions. Imagine–instead of having to wager thousands of dollars to get a $100 bonus, the same bonus is yours for doing nothing more than getting  just one of your friends who is not already a player on VirginCasino.com to sign up!

How to Refer Your Friend to Virgin Online Casino

The referral can be completed in either of these two ways:

  • Have the person you are referring enter your VirginCasino.com username in the “Referred by a friend” field on the registration form.
  • Share the following link with your friend or on social media, and add your username at the end of the URL.

https://www.virgincasino.com/#/register?promoCode={username}

What Happens Next

The standard $50 Refer a Friend Bonus will be credited to your account as soon as your friend signs up and deposits and wagers at least $10. Your extra $50 bonus will be credited to your account at the end of the promotion period or within 48 hours of receiving the first part of your bonus.

Wait, there’s more. Your friend gets an extra $10 bonus on top of the bonus money that this casino’s new players usually receive.

Wagering Requirements for This Week’s Virgin Online Casino Extra Bonuses

Any bonus money received in either of this week’s special promotions is subject to usual VirginCasino.com wagering requirements. Players have up to 30 days to wager the bonus once on any game. As soon as this minimal wagering is completed, any resulting winnings are available for withdrawal but, unfortunately, not the bonus itself. The casino takes the bonus back, and the player never sees it again.

Why the Refer a Friend Bonus is Superior

Obviously, the combination of not being able to either keep the bonus or wager it more than once significantly limits your potential for winning. But at the same time–and this is a big plus—you are risking nothing since you are betting the casino’s money, not your own. Also, the $100 from this week’s Refer a Friend offer–which you can increase by $50 each time you make another successful referral–is enough ammunition to potentially score a sizable win even after the bonus is taken away.

Furthermore, getting the bonus also costs you absolutely nothing. No prior deposit or play on your part is required to get the bonus, and the wagering requirement thereafter is being paid for by the casino.

The Bottom Line

The conclusion from all of the foregoing should be obvious. The first offer for 10x V Points is mediocre and probably a waste of time for most players. However, Friends with Benefits at Virgin Online Casino is without doubt one of the most outstanding promotions you will ever find at any NJ online casino.

I have written about this frequently recurring special offer numerous times on this website and given it my highest accolades. So there really isn’t anything more to say except that this $100 bonus is almost as good as finding $100 on the street.

But after August 9, it won’t be there anymore. So go pick it up today while it’s still yours for the taking.
