Holiday of More at Tropicana Online Casino
What can possibly top the Fall of More at TropicanaCasino.com? The Winter of More, of course. Now with the holiday season winding down, winter is just getting started. But if you’re a Tropicana Online Casino player that’s a good thing. Come January and February, you’ll have plenty of good reasons to shrug off the cold and snow and stay indoors, as bonuses galore are a near certainty.
But why wait until then? Tropicana Online Casino players can celebrate the holiday of more even after Christmas Day with two great offers. One is for a deposit match bonus up to $50. The other is for double the usual bonus for referring a friend. If you’re a Tropicana Online Casino player, it would be a shame to miss either of these offers.
Tropicana Online Casino Holiday Deposit Match: Up to $50
This special promotion started Monday, December 24 and continues until 11:59 p.m. Thursday, December 27 only. The payout date is Friday, December 28.
As long as you make a net deposit of at least $20 anytime during the promotion period, TropicanaCasino.com will match your deposit with a 15% bonus. The maximum bonus you can receive with this offer is $50.
Keep in mind that the offer is only for a 15% deposit match, not a 100% deposit match. This means that to get the maximum bonus of $50, you will need to deposit $333.34 or more. If you only deposit the $20 minimum, you will only receive a $3 bonus which, frankly, is not worth the trouble.
However, if it is more convenient for you to make several deposits between now and late Thursday, that is fine. At most NJ online casinos, only single deposits are eligible for a bonus, but at TropicanaCasino.com, the number of deposits doesn’t matter. Only the net deposit (total amount deposited less total amount, if any, withdrawn) counts.
If you can’t or don’t want to deposit $333.34 to receive a $50 bonus, you can deposit less and still get a smaller bonus. However, I strongly recommend depositing at least $100 to get a $15 bonus. Otherwise, you will probably be wasting your time.
How to Participate in the TropicanaCasino.com Holiday Deposit Match Promotion
If you wish to participate in this promotion, here are the steps you need to follow:
- Log into your TropicanaCasino.com account during the December 24-27 promotion period.
- Make a qualifying net deposit and wager it once.
On Friday, December 28, the casino will determine each participating player’s bonus based on total net deposit during the promotion period. The bonus money will then be credited to your account within 24 hours, or within three business days in the event of technical difficulties.
TropicanaCasino.com Holiday Deposit Match Bonus Wagering Requirements
The Holiday Deposit Match Bonus is subject to the same wagering requirements and other terms and conditions as all other bonuses awarded to existing customers by either TropicanaCasino.com or sister NJ online casino VirginCasino.com. Before you will be allowed access to any bonus-related winnings, you need to wager the bonus 1x on any game. You have up to 30 days to do so.
As soon as you meet this very minimal wagering requirement, you will be able to withdraw any resulting winnings, but not the bonus itself. Like all other TropicanaCasino.com bonuses, this one is sticky, which means that you get to wager the bonus once and that’s it. As soon as you do, the casino removes the bonus from your account permanently.
Is the Holiday Deposit Match Bonus worth your time?
What Could Be Better
Compared to some of the other NJ online casino bonuses being offered, there are a couple of areas where this one falls short.
Only a 15% deposit match
A 15% deposit match is a relatively small percentage. Therefore, you may have to deposit more money than you want or feel you should for the size bonus the casino is giving you.
Sticky bonus limits win potential
Another way this offer is not as good as it could be is that it gives you very little leeway to make a profit. Not only is the bonus small to begin with; you can only wager the bonus once and then you can’t even keep the bonus. You can only keep what you win betting it.
Fortunately the Holiday Deposit Match Bonus also has a couple of great features.
Minimal deposit and wagering requirements
Even though the Holiday Deposit Match Bonus is far from big by NJ standards, what many players will appreciate is that it’s highly affordable. The deposit and wagering requirements are extremely reasonable. Therefore, it’s an offer that virtually any player can access. The casino is even giving you the flexibility of making multiple deposits to get your bonus, if you find that more convenient.
No Risk Bonus
The fact that you can only bet the bonus once does limit your potential to make a profit with it. However, the same restriction can also work in your favor, particularly if you’re a small player with a limited bankroll. Since you’re only betting the bonus once, you’re doing so with the casino’s money, not your own. In other words, the casino is giving you a free shot to bet the bonus and try to win with it. Even if you don’t win, all that happens is that your account balance becomes exactly the same as just before you got the bonus. You can’t possibly lose any more of your own money, and you could win.
The Bottom Line
This is not the type of offer that is likely to make a big impact on your account balance either way. You could win, but much more likely than not, your winnings will be small. If you don’t win, any losses will also most likely be small. I wouldn’t go so far as to call this promotion great. But as long as you’re going to be playing on TropicanaCasino.com anyway over the next few days, I think you should give this promotion a shot and see what happens.
Double Refer a Friend Bonus
The second special offer that TropicanaCasino.com has for you this week is by far the better of the two. The Double Refer a Friend Bonus is back!
In order to participate, you need to be a registered TropicanaCasino.com player with access to the NJ online games. However, residents of New York, Rhode Island, Florida, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico are not eligible.
Like the Regular Refer a Friend Bonus, But Even Better
As you know, all year round, both Tropicana and Virgin Online Casinos encourage you to refer your friends to the site–the more the merrier. All they have to do for the referral to count is to join the site, crediting you for making the referral, and then make a deposit of $10 or more and wager it one time. Meanwhile, you’re not risking one cent of your own money. Yet for each successful new referral you make, the casino rewards you with $50 bonus money.
In fact, even if you had taken the casino up on the offer before, you can do so again and again and be rewarded every time. The Refer a Friend Bonus never expires.
But during the Double Refer a Friend Bonus promotion, this already great offer gets even better. Instead of the usual $50 Bonus Money for your first successful new referral, the casino will pay you double–$100 in Bonus Money!
When is the Double Refer A Friend Bonus available?
Like the Holiday Deposit Match Bonus promotion, the period for the Double Refer a Friend Bonus started Monday, December 24 and lasts through Thursday, December 27.
Focus on your most likely prospects
During the final weeks leading up to Christmas, many folks are making their lists and checking it twice. And that’s exactly what you should do now to make sure you pick the right name(s) for this Refer a Friend promotion.
A good place to start would be those on your Christmas list you didn’t get a present for yet or whom you would like to give another present. Which of them who is not already signed up with TropicanaCasino.com is most likely to respond eagerly now to your invitation?
Remember that the double bonus of $100 is only for the first friend who accepts your offer this week. So your priority should be picking someone you are reasonably certain you can count on. Of course, you can make other referrals, too, and if they accept, great. But since you won’t get a bigger bonus than usual for them, whether they accept your referral this week or at a later time really doesn’t matter.
How to Make Your Referrals
After deciding which friend(s) you want to invite to join TropicanaCasino.com this week, you have a choice of two ways to refer them to the site.
- Give your friend your TropicanaCasino.com username and ask him or her to enter it in the “Referred by a Friend” field on the registration form.
- Send your friend the following link on social media and add your username at the end of the URL.
What If Your Friend Needs Further Convincing
Hearing you speak in glowing terms about all the great games and fun promotions you’ve been enjoying on TropicanaCasino.com and, of course, your winnings, should be all the incentive your friend needs.
In addition, if your friend is a small player or money is tight, no problem. The first deposit can be as small as $10, and it only needs to be wagered once.
But if all that still doesn’t seal the deal, maybe the extra $10 bonus your friend will get on top of the regular sign-up bonus will.
But wait, there’s more. Each successful new referral you make entitles you to a free entry into a drawing for a two-night stay at the Chelsea Tower of the Tropicana, Atlantic City. If you win, you’ll need someone to bring along to share this fun getaway, and who that will be should be a no-brainer. The friend who has just accepted your invitation to join the site!
What Your Friend’s Acceptance Means for You
You can refer your friends to Tropicana Online Casino anytime and still get the usual $50 bonus. But through Thursday, December 27 only, you have the rare opportunity to get a double bonus on your first successful new referral. TropicanaCasino.com had the identical offer in October. However, I can assure you the next time won’t be until 2019 and probably not in January. So if you have someone you can refer right now, it’s silly to wait.
In addition, as mentioned, each successful referral you make during the promotion period will earn you one entry into the Friday, December 28 drawing. The winner will receive two nights at the Chelsea Hotel, which is now part of the Tropicana in Atlantic City. There is a maximum of five entries per person per calendar day.
Additional Terms and Conditions
Grand Prize of Two Nights at the Chelsea Hotel
One winner will be randomly selected from all eligible entries. He or she will be notified accordingly via email within three business days and then have three calendar days thereafter to claim the prize. The offer is valid for Monday-Thursday nights only.
The prize is valued at $400 and is non-transferable and non-exchangeable. It includes the cost of the room only. Any additional expenses such as travel costs, taxes, fees, food, entertainment, and other incidentals are not covered and are the player’s own responsibility.
Double Refer a Friend Bonus Money
Any $50 bonuses you are entitled to receive for successful referrals during this promotion will be awarded as soon as your friend joins and completes the 1x wager of the first deposit. The remaining $50 due you for the first of these referrals will be credited to your account within 24 hours of Friday, December 28 (or three business days in the event of technical difficulties).
All of this Bonus Money works exactly like any other Bonus Money this casino awards you. Before you will be permitted to withdraw any bonus-related winnings, you have up to 30 days to wager the bonus 1x on any game. As soon as you complete this wagering, the casino takes the bonus back, leaving you only with the winnings, not the bonus itself.
Why the Double Refer a Friend Bonus is a Great Offer
Even though we can’t promise that the Double Refer a Friend Bonus will be profitable, your chances of winning are excellent. And in any case, this much is certain. You can’t possibly lose a single dollar of your own money. That’s because from start to finish, as far as you’re concerned, the entire promotion is completely risk free.
While a nominal deposit is required for anyone you refer, you don’t have to make any deposit at all. And the only wager you have to make comes after you get your bonus. You then have to wager the bonus 1x only, so it is with the casino’s money, not your own.
Thereafter, even though you can only keep the winnings, if any, and not the bonus, $100 is a lot more than most of the bonuses typically given out at this casino. A bigger bonus means more opportunity, if you are lucky, to enjoy a decent size win.
Meanwhile, you are getting the extra satisfaction this Christmas season of doing something extra nice for one or more special friends who will undoubtedly appreciate the gesture. And when they get to experience the wide variety of quality games and promotions this site has to offer, TropicanaCasino.com might even become one of their favorite NJ online casinos,
