Grab a Share of the Tropicana Icy Sharepot

 

It may be so icy cold outside you don’t want to go anywhere. But for Tropicana Online Casino players, it hardly matters. Who cares what the weather is like when you can stay warm and toasty enjoying all the comforts of home while playing your favorite online casino games? And while you’re at it, you can even rake in a share of Bonus Money, too, from the casino’s latest Sharepot!

TropicanaCasino.com is calling this promotion Icy Sharepot. But don’t worry because no one who participates is on thin ice when it comes to getting a share of the massive $10,000 prize pool. No one walks away empty-handed, so the more the more merrier!

How to Participate in the TropicanaCasino.com Icy Sharepot Promotion

The Icy Sharepot promotion runs from Tuesday, January 22 through Thursday, January 24, so it’s for three days only. The promotion is only open to registered TropicanaCasino.com account holders. In order to participate, you don’t necessarily have to reside in New Jersey, but you do need to have access to the NJ online games. Other than that, here’s all you need to do to get started:

  • Log into your TropicanaCasino.com account as often as possible during the January 22-24 promotion period.
  • Play your favorite games.
How many entries can you earn?

For every $50 wagered on any given calendar day, you will earn one Sharepot ticket, up to a maximum of five tickets per day if if you wager $250 or more.

Therefore, if you play all three days of the promotion and wager $250 each day, you will earn 15 tickets, the maximum number possible. The advantage to earning 15 tickets is that when the $10,000 Sharepot is divvied up, it’s your guarantee you will get the biggest Sharepot share possible. Obviously, there will be other people who will qualify for the same size prize. However, no one will get a bigger share.

On the other hand, we never recommend playing for more than you can afford. So if getting the maximum number of Sharepot tickets means playing more than you can afford or have time for, don’t worry.. Simply do the best you can and take whatever share of the prize pool you have coming to you.

Determining Each Player’s Prize

Even if you already have a good idea how many tickets you will earn, there’s no way of knowing ahead of time the size of your reward. That will remain a mystery until the period for earning tickets ends and the casino determines what percentage of the total number of tickets each participant received.

In some of the Tropicana Sharepots, even the size of the Sharepot is an unknown in advance. That’s because as players make their wagers, the casino keeps sweetening the pot to make it bigger. However, this time, just like in the last few Sharepots, the size of the Sharepot is fixed at $10,000. Regardless of the number of participants and the sizes of their wagers, this figure remains constant, no more and no less.

All prizes are in the form of Bonus Money

In addition, if you’re hoping for a prize in the form of withdrawable cash, you’re not going to get it. All prizes are in the form of Bonus Money credited to the player’s account.

But first, the casino needs to determine what size reward each participating player is entitled to receive. This is how TropicanaCasino.com will make that determination:

  • The casino will tally up the total number of tickets each player has earned along with the total number of tickets earned by all players combined.
  • Then each player’s total will be divided by the grand total to get a percentage.
  • Lastly, the casino will multiply each player’s percentage of the total number of tickets by the total Sharepot amount of $10,000. The results will show exactly how much Bonus Money each player will receive.

For example, if you have 10 Sharepot Tickets and all of the participants combined have 4,000 tickets, your percentage of the total is .25%. When that percentage is multiplied by $10,000 (the total amount of Bonus Money in the Sharepot), you get $25. This is the amount of Bonus Money you will receive from the casino.

When the Bonus Money Will be Awarded

The determination how much Bonus Money each participating player will receive will take place on Friday, January 25. You can expect the Bonus Money in your account 24 hours thereafter, or within three business days in the event of technical difficulties.

Additional Wagering Requirements

Any Bonus Money received in this promotion works like and is subject to the same terms and conditions as any other Bonus Money that TropicanaCasino.com, or sister casino VirginCasino.com, offers to existing players.

There is a nominal wagering requirement of 1x the bonus. You can choose any game you wish for this purpose. You also have up to 30 days to complete the wagering.

But probably, you will clear the bonus long before then,. As soon as you do, you are free to withdraw any resulting winnings, but unfortunately, not the Bonus Money itself. Like all other bonuses at this casino, this one is sticky. In other words, as soon as you wager it once, win or lose, it’s out of your hands and you never see it again.

Is the TropicanaCasino.com Icy Sharepot worth your time?

What could be better

All TropicanaCasino.com promotions where players receive Bonus Money, whether it is in the form of a Sharepot, drawing, deposit match, or playback bonus, have the same basic shortcomings. You can only keep the winnings from the bonus, not the bonus itself. In addition, you only get the opportunity to bet the Bonus Money once, so you can’t capitalize on what could be a good winning streak if the starting stake were still available.

As a result, the size of the bonus usually needs to be larger than would be needed with a cashable bonus to have any realistic chance for a decent size win. If you’re lucky enough to have a substantial win while participating in this promotion, it is much more likely to occur during your qualifying play to earn tickets for the Sharepot than in your 1x wager of your Bonus Money.

Why it’s still a good offer

On the other hand for anyone who can appreciate the value of a special offer with both minimal risk to your bankroll and a guaranteed bonus, this promotion is ideal. You might not win with the bonus, but this much is certain. Betting it, you cannot possibly lose your own money.

If you’re still not convinced that this promotion is worth your time, consider the following:

  • Very reasonable entry requirements

No deposit is required, and as long as you can wager $50 on at least one day, a piece of the Sharepot is guaranteed. If you can afford to wager more, your share will be bigger. But even then you don’t have to worry about high rollers grabbing the lion’s share of the prize money for themselves and leaving everyone else in the cold. With the cap of five tickets per day per person based on $250 wagers, everyone gets a fair deal.

  • Everybody wins something

This is not a drawing where only a lucky few win a prize and everyone else walks away with nothing. On the contrary, no one walks away empty-handed from this giveaway. If you only earn the minimum of one ticket, your prize will be small, but you still get a share of the Sharepot.

  • No-risk bonus

The only money you are risking at all in this promotion is while playing to earn Sharepot tickets. And you can control the amount so you stay within your budget. When the time comes to  make your 1x wager of the Bonus Money, there is no further risk to your own bankroll at all. Win or lose, you are betting the casino’s money, not your own.

 The Bottom Line

As long as it’s convenient for you to play on TropicanaCasino.com between now and Thursday, January 24, of course, you should participate in the Icy Sharepot. Even if your winnings don’t amount to much, how can you say no to a bonus that’s both easy to get and guaranteed? It sure beats being left out in the cold.

TropicanaCasino.com has a big Icy Sharepot waiting. Are you ready to grab your share?
