Tropicana Online Staycation Giveaway


Sometimes the best vacations are those where, rather than taking a trip and incurring all the big expenses and potential for things to go wrong that frequently come with it, you stay home and relax, doing what you like to do best. For many of you that includes playing your favorite games at Tropicana Online Casino.

This weekend is pulling out all the stops to make your Staycation even more special. It’s an offer you’ll definitely want to take the casino up on because if you’re lucky you could win a huge prize. Then, as you’re smiling all the way to the bank, the thought of the weekend getaway you didn’t take will be the furthest thing from your mind!

All together, the casino is giving away $5,000 in Bonus Money prizes, including a top prize of a $500 bonus. But there are lots of other prizes up for grabs, too. 180 players will share in the prize pool.

The promotion period runs from Friday, August 24 until 11:59 p.m. Monday, August 27.

How to Participate in the Tropicana Online Casino Staycation Giveaway

In order to participate in this promotion, you need to be a registered player at You do not necessarily have to live in New Jersey, but you do need to have access to the Tropicana NJ online casino games and be situated in New Jersey at the time of your play. In addition, this promotion is not open to residents of New York, Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico.

Assuming you are eligible, here are the steps that you need to follow for a chance to win one of the 180 Staycation prizes.

  • Log into your account during the 8/24-8/27 promotion period.
  • Play your favorite games.

How the Tropicana Online Casino Staycation Giveaway Works

Every time you wager $50 on on any game, you earn one entry into the drawing, up to a maximum of five entries per calendar day. So if you started playing on day 1, Friday, August 24, wagering $250 or more that day and each day of the promotion thereafter, you will be in very good shape with a total of 20 entries, the maximum number you can get. If you start playing on the second day, you can still receive a total of 15 entries.

However, if you can’t play every day and wager enough to earn the maximum number of tickets, don’t worry about it. In a random drawing like this, anything can happen. Players with relatively few entries can still win one of the top prizes. Conversely, players with the maximum number of entries might not have their names picked for any prize at all.

What You Can Win in the Tropicana Online Casino Staycation Giveaway

The 180 prizes up for grabs in the Tropicana Online Casino Staycation Giveaway range all the way from $10 Bonus Money to $500 Bonus Money.

On Tuesday, August 28, a random drawing will take place to determine who gets what. Winning players can expect to receive their bonus within 24 hours thereafter (or three business days in the event of technical difficulties).

The following table shows the distribution of prizes.


# of Winners Prize
1 $500 Bonus Money
4 $250 Bonus Money
5 $100 Bonus Money
20 $50 Bonus Money
50 $20 Bonus Money
100 $10 Bonus Money


Tropicana Online Casino Staycation Bonus Wagering Requirements

The wagering requirements for the Bonus Money won in this promotion are the same as for any other bonus an existing player at or sister casino might receive. The bonus comes with a wagering requirement of 1x the bonus. Any game may be selected for this purpose, and you have up to 30 days to complete the wagering.

Then, as soon as you do, you are free to withdraw the resulting winnings. However, you won’t be able to withdraw the bonus itself. As soon as you have wagered the bonus once, the casino takes it back, and you never see it again.

Why the Tropicana Online Casino Staycation Giveaway is a Good Deal

As long as you are going to be playing on anyway this weekend, you should participate in this promotion. No deposit is required, and you can earn entries into the drawing simply playing in the same manner you usually do without exceeding your comfort zone or overbetting your bankroll.

You also don’t have to worry about high rollers dominating the entries to the detriment of everyone else since the maximum number of entries is capped at a very reasonable five per day. In other words, everyone has a chance to win.

What Could Be Better

Of course, like virtually every other NJ online casino promotion, certain features in this one could be better. Most NJ online casino bonuses are the type you can keep in addition to your winnings, but not until you have met the specified wagering requirements. More often than not, you will need to play through the bonus many times. Naturally, this will entail some element of risk, but on the plus side, with each wager, you are getting a new opportunity to win.

The Bonus Money prizes in this promotion work differently, however. For starters, you can only bet the bonus once. Then as soon as you do, the casino takes the bonus back and only lets you keep your winnings, if any. This significantly limits the amount you can win with the bonus.

Great Features

Fortunately, the offer you are getting here also has the following great features to make up for those that are not so great.

  • First and foremost, once you get the bonus, then because you are only betting it once, there is no further risk to your own bankroll whatsoever. The casino is giving you a free shot to try to win with the bonus. The worst that can happen is you don’t win, but even then, your account balance is exactly the same as and no less than it was just before you got the bonus.
  • As mentioned, any player participating in this promotion has a shot to have his or her name picked for a prize.
  • A total of 180 prizes are being given away. That’s a lot of winners!
  • You can clear the bonus with any game you wish, and it will count the full 100 percent. You don’t have to play slots, if you would rather play another game. If you prefer to play a game like blackjack with a much lower house edge, you can and it will still count 100%.
  • Even though you can’t keep the bonus, if you are lucky enough to win one of the larger amounts, the potential for a big win still exists.
The Bottom Line

The bottom line is that there is no guarantee that you will be ahead of the game from this promotion. Even though 180 prizes will be awarded, it’s still far from everyone participating in the giveaway, so it’s possible that you might not get a bonus. Or if you do, the odds are that it will be small rather than big. However, some players will win a big bonus, and you could be one of them.

This is a fun promotion with no more risk playing to earn entries into the drawing than you would face any other time, and then, the bonus, should you win one, is completely risk-free! So by all means enjoy your Staycation and take a shot at winning a share of the prize money.
