Holiday Sweepstakes at Borgata Online


If you are a Borgata Online Casino player, Christmas trees may not be the only thing green you’re seeing a lot of this holiday season. Between now and Christmas Day is offering a $15,000 Holiday Sweepstakes. This giveaway is going to make some players, maybe you, a whole lot richer, not to mention the green with envy look on your friends’ faces if you wind up taking home one of the top prizes.

This could be your last chance to close out 2018 with a bang, and it starts now. 300 lucky players will share in the bounty!

How to Enter the $15,000 Holiday Sweepstakes

The $15,000 Holiday Sweepstakes runs for nine straight days from Monday, December 17 through Tuesday, December 25. For your chance to be one of the 300 prize winners in this exciting giveaway, here’s what you need to do.

  • Log into your account during the December 17-25 promotion period.
  • Go to My Promotions and opt into the $15,000 Holiday Sweepstakes. As soon as you do, you will receive one free entry.
How to Earn Additional Entries

You can improve your chances of winning with more entries by making deposits and playing.

  • Each day during the promotion that you make a deposit of $20 or more, you will receive two additional entries into the drawing.
  • You will also earn one additional entry daily for every 20 iRPs earned playing (up to a maximum of 10 additional entries per day if you earn 200 iRPs or more).

If you make a qualifying deposit and also earn 200 iRPs playing each day, you will receive a total of 109 entries, which is the maximum number possible.

However, that will entail a great deal of play that may be more than you have time for or can afford. If that is the case, don’t worry about it. Simply play as often as you can from now through Christmas Day, but without exceeding an amount you can comfortably afford. Keep in mind that 300 winners will be selected in a random drawing, so anything can happen.

Distribution of Prizes

On Wednesday, December 26, a random drawing will be held to determine all of the winners. The table below shows the distribution of prizes.


 1 $2,500 CASH
2 – 5 $1,000 BONUS DOLLARS
6 – 12 $250 BONUS DOLLARS
13 – 26 $100 BONUS DOLLARS
27 – 60 $50 BONUS DOLLARS
61 – 115 $25 BONUS DOLLARS
116 – 200 $15 BONUS DOLLARS
201 – 300 $10 BONUS DOLLARS


As you can see, the Grand Prize is $2,500 in cash. However, the 299 remaining prizes are all in the form of bonus dollars added to your account. The bonus dollar prizes range all the way from $10 to $1,000.

Only one prize can be won by a given individual. Winning players will be notified and have their prize credited to their account within 48 hours of the drawing.

Bonus Dollars Wagering Requirements

All bonus dollars won in the Borgata Holiday Sweepstakes are subject to a minimal wagering requirement of 1x the bonus. However, only slot play counts.

As is customary with all Borgata promotions involving bonus dollars, players only have 24 hours from the time the bonus money is awarded to complete the wagering. While the bonus playthrough is still in progress, both the bonus and any resulting winnings will be temporarily locked into the player’s account. However, assuming the bonus has not yet expired, all of this money (or what’s left of it) will become available for withdrawal as soon as the required wagering is completed. Players also earn loyalty points for all wagers to clear the bonus.

Opting out, attempting to withdraw unavailable funds prematurely, or failure to clear the bonus in the very short window of time given will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any resulting winnings.

Why the Borgata $15,000 Holiday Sweepstakes is Worth Your Time

Anyone Can Win

Obviously, those players who are capable of betting heavily enough during the promotion period to earn the maximum number of entries are at a big advantage. However, as I stated before, with 300 winners being randomly picked to share the bounty, some prizes, maybe even some top prizes, will go to players with considerably fewer entries.

So even if you’re a small stakes player, the Holiday Sweepstakes is worth a shot. Also, you only have to deposit $20 on any given day for two extra entries. Therefore, if possible, I recommend depositing $20 all nine days of the promotion. That by itself will give you 18 extra entries even if your play over the nine days is minimal.

Very Reasonable Wagering Requirements to Clear the Bonus

Another nice feature of this promotion is the very reasonable wagering requirements for the bonus money prizes. Winners only have to wager the bonus 1x, so there is no additional risk of your own money at all.

In the worst case scenario, you don’t win betting the bonus money, but all you can lose is the casino’s money, so what you have left is exactly what you started with before you got the bonus money prize. However, if you limit your play to the best slots in the house–those with a 96% return to player (RTP) or better–losing the entire bonus is highly unlikely. Instead, you have an excellent chance of winning.

The only feature in this promotion that could be better is the very limited time you have to clear the bonus–only one day. But since you only have to wager the bonus once, it is definitely feasible.


As long as you are going to play on anyway this week, you should definitely take a shot at the Holiday Sweepstakes. With $15,000 in prizes going to 300 players, how could you not want to throw your hat in the ring for a piece of it!
