Super Bonuses for Super Bowl Weekend
Super Bowl weekend–the biggest one of the year for football fans across the country–is finally here. But for NJ sports fans and bettors, it’s an especially exciting time because for the first time ever, you can bet the game legally without leaving the state.
So, in celebration of this momentous occasion, it is only fitting that NJ online casinos give you even more to cheer about. How does a 100% deposit match bonus sound? Better yet, how about two 100% deposit match bonuses? This weekend Golden Nugget Online Casino has one for up to $25, and Caesars Online Casino has one for up to $50. If you’re a registered player at both of these casinos, you can snag both bonuses and get a dollar for dollar deposit match twice. That’s a total of $75 in bonus money!
Golden Nugget Online Casino Super Bowl Weekend 100% Deposit Match Bonus up to $25
On Thursday, January 31, I told you about this casino’s Deposit $20, Get a $20 Bonus “Snow Day” Surprise. Well, the snow came Friday instead after this offer had already ended. But Golden Nugget was ready with a brand new offer for another 100% deposit match bonus!
This time the bonus is capped at $25. In addition, you have the whole Super Bowl weekend from Friday through Sunday to log into your account and claim it.
How to Access the Super Bowl Weekend 100% Bonus at Golden Nugget Online Casino
If you’re a registered Golden Nugget Online Casino player and would like to participate in this offer, here’s what you need to do:
- Log into your GoldenNuggetCasino.com account anytime from Friday, February 1 through Sunday, February 3.
- Claim the offer from Available Bonuses and make a deposit of $20 or more.
Your 100% bonus will be credited to your account immediately.
Note that this offer can only be claimed once and with a single deposit. While you can deposit as little as $20, by all means spring for the extra $5 so you can get a $25 bonus, which is the maximum possible.
However, it’s pointless to deposit more than $25 unless you need the extra money in your account to make your usual size wagers. The size of your bonus will not increase.
Wagering Requirements for the Bonus
This bonus comes with the same wagering requirements and other terms and conditions as other deposit match bonuses at Golden Nugget Online Casino, including the $20 bonus described in my 1/31 post on this website.
Before you will be permitted to withdraw the bonus, deposit tied to the bonus, or any associated winnings, you will need to wager the following multiples of the bonus:
- Most slots: 10x bonus
- Excluded slots* and all other games: 50x bonus
*There are 21 slots at this casino for which any wagers to clear the bonus only count 20% rather than 100%. Therefore, selecting any of these games will result in your having to wager the bonus 50x, just like for non-slot play, instead of just 10x like for most slots.
See the Golden Nugget website for the complete list of these 21 excluded slots. However, your best bet is to clear the bonus instead with one of the 500+ other slots. Many of them also have an above average return to player (RTP), which you can check simply by clicking on the Information (“i”) tab for any slot game you are considering.
Wait until you don’t have a bonus to clear to play either the excluded slots or any other game with a 50x bonus wagering requirement. Clear the bonus instead with one of the slots that count the full 100%. That way, you will only have to wager $250 to clear your $25 bonus.
Other Terms and Conditions
As with all other GoldenNuggetCasino.com bonuses, you have up to seven days to complete the necessary wagering. While this wagering is still in progress, the bonus, deposit, and any resulting winnings will remain temporarily locked into your account. However, you can still access winnings in your cashable wallet from wagers unrelated to the bonus. The other money (or whatever is left of it) will also become available as soon as you finish clearing the bonus (as long as it hasn’t expired).
On the other hand, opting out, attempting to withdraw unavailable funds prematurely, or failure to complete the wagering in time will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any resulting winnings.
Caesars Online Casino Super Bowl Weekend 100% Deposit Match Bonus up to $50
Golden Nugget isn’t the only NJ online casino where you can celebrate Super Bowl weekend with a dollar for dollar match on your deposit. Caesars has a similar offer. And this one is even better because the maximum bonus is twice as much! Deposit $50 and get another $50!
How to Access the 100% Deposit Match Bonus at Caesars Online Casino
This offer runs from Friday, February 1 through Monday, February 4. So if the Big Game on Sunday is enough action for you this weekend and you prefer to focus just on that and wait until after the Super Bowl–and you hopefully cash some big winnings–that’s fine. The offer is open to all registered CaesarsCasino.com players. Here’s what you need to do access it.
- Log into your CaesarsCasino.com account anytime during the February 1-4 promotion period.
- Click on My Account and then on My Bonuses.
- Enter the code MATCH50 and click on Get Details.
- Find the 100% Bonus Match offer under Available Bonuses.
- Click on Deposit next to the bonus. Then make your deposit and claim your bonus.
Since Caesars will match your deposit dollar for dollar up to $50, in order to get the maximum value, as long as you can afford a $50 deposit, that’s what your deposit should be. However, if you wish to make a smaller deposit, check the marketing collateral to make sure that it is at least the minimum required for a bonus.
Conversely, unless you absolutely need to deposit more than $50 to make your usual size wagers, there is no point in doing so. Your bonus will still be capped at $50.
Keep in mind that you can only claim this offer once and with a single deposit. Deposits made at the Caesars Atlantic City casino cashier’s cage or via PayNearMe don’t count.
Wagering Requirements for the Bonus
CaesarsCasino.com recently offered a few bonuses where the wagering requirements were smaller than usual because they were based on multiples of just the bonus, not the bonus and deposit combined. Accordingly, I thought–or at least hoped—that was a permanent change. But that was not the case. Caesars is once again basing the wagering requirements on equal multiples of both the bonus and deposit combined.
Because this bonus is a 100% match of your deposit, so the two amounts are equal, the net effect is to double the wagering requirements over what they would be otherwise if the deposit were not part of the equation. Here are the wagering requirements:
- Slots: 5x bonus + deposit
- Video Poker: 10x bonus + deposit
- All Other Games: 25x bonus + deposit
The wagering requirement for slots is equivalent to 10x the bonus without the deposit (the wagering requirement for most Golden Nugget slots), while the wagering requirement for video poker is equivalent to 20x the bonus. The wagering requirement for all other games is equivalent to 50x the bonus, the same as for excluded slots and non-slot games at Golden Nugget Online Casino.
If you deposit $50 to receive the maximum bonus of $50, depending on your game choice, your total wagering requirement will be $500, $1,000, or $2,500.
Additional Terms and Conditions
Like Golden Nugget Online Casino, Caesars is giving you up to seven days to clear the bonus. By all means, take advantage of this time and spread out the required wagers accordingly, especially if you are a small player.
Until the bonus is fully cleared, you won’t be able to withdraw the bonus, deposit tied to the bonus, or any associated winnings. As soon as you complete the necessary wagering, provided it is within the allotted time frame, these funds (or whatever is left of them ) will become available to you.
Cancelling the bonus, attempting to withdraw unavailable funds prematurely, or failure to complete the required wagering on time will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any resulting winnings.
Another Special Offer from Caesars Casino & Sports That May Interest You
As you probably know, CaesarsCasino.com is now an online sportsbook as well as a casino. In fact, the site uses a single wallet for both platforms, so you can log in and use the same account to bet on either casino games or sports, or both.
If you would like to make an online bet on the Super Bowl or any other game this weekend, Caesars has an offer you can’t refuse. They will match your sports bet dollar for dollar, up to $100, with a free in-play sports bet. Both bets must be on a single game, and the free bet must also be on a game that has already started. For the full details of this unique and exciting promotion, read here.
Why These Are Great Offers
The first two offers mentioned are for a 100% deposit match, so in effect you get to double your deposit, while with the third offer, you get to double your bet. Either way, you are getting a fantastic deal and great bang for your buck.
The deposit match bonuses, while small, are not so tiny as to be considered time wasters. Also, the deposit requirements are affordable, and as long as you stick to slot games that count the full 100 percent, the wagering requirements are quite reasonable as well. The sports bet offer is likewise one with widespread appeal since you have lots of flexibility both in the type of bet and the amount. However, you can make both bets on the Super Bowl, so the offer couldn’t come at a better time.
There you have it—three super offers for Super Bowl Weekend. If you can tackle all three, regardless of which team prevails in the Big Game, you’ll score a touchdown!
