Tropicana Billboard Bonus Money Sharepot
Sunday, February 10 we’ll all be watching the Grammy Awards telecast. But all weekend long, Tropicana Online Casino players can compete for their own awards. No special talent or skill is necessary, just the desire to play your favorite NJ online casino games and the extra bonus money that goes along with it. If you’re ready to join in the fun, TropicanaCasino.com will happily award you with a piece of its $10,000 Billboard Bonus Money Sharepot!
How to Participate in the TropicanaCasino.com Billboard Bonus Money Sharepot Weekend
The Billboard Bonus Money Sharepot promotion started Friday, February 8 and continues through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, February 10. Everyone who logs into their account and wagers at least $50 on at least one calendar day during the promotion will get a share of the Sharepot. However, if you wager more than the minimum, you will get a bigger share.
Here’s what you need to do to get started:
- Log into your TropicanaCasino.com account as often as possible during the February 8-10 promotion period.
- Play your favorite games.
For each $50 that you wager on any game on any given day, you will earn one Sharepot ticket, up to a maximum of five tickets per day, if you wager a total of $250 or more.
Therefore, the maximum number of tickets possible for any one player is 15. If you missed the first day of the promotion but make $250 in wagers both Saturday and Sunday, you will receive 10 tickets.
How the Casino Will Determine Your Bonus
Tropicana Online Casino will determine each participant’s share of the $10 Billboard Bonus Money Sharepot in exactly the same way that it determined each player’s share of the $10,000 Icy Sharepot last month.
All prizes will be in the form of Bonus Money added to the player’s account. Obviously, these amounts will vary based on amount of play. In order to determine each participant’s fair share, on Monday, February 11, the day after the promotion ends, Tropicana Online Casino will do all of the following:
- Determine the total number of tickets each player has earned.
- Tally up the total number of tickets for all players combined.
- Divide each player’s total by the grand total to get a percentage.
- Multiply each player’s percentage of the total number of tickets by $10,000 (the amount of Bonus Money in the Sharepot). The resulting figure is the amount of Bonus Money that player will get.
For example, if you have 10 Sharepot Tickets and all of the participants combined have 5,000 tickets, your percentage of the total is .20%. When you multiply that percentage by $10,000, the result is $20. This is the amount of Bonus Money you will receive.
When will you receive your Bonus Money?
TropicanaCasino.com will complete the determination how much Bonus Money each participating player should get on Monday, February 11. Therefore, you will most likely receive your bonus within 24 hours thereafter. But allow for up to three business days in case of technical difficulties.
Bonus Money Wagering Requirements
If you participated in last month’s Icy Sharepot or any other promotion at this casino where you were awarded Bonus Money, undoubtedly, you already know the drill.
All Bonus Money earned in this promotion comes with a wagering requirement of 1x the bonus. You can play any game you wish and take up to 30 days.
As soon you complete this minimal wagering requirement, you can withdraw any resulting winnings, but not the Bonus Money. Like all other bonuses both at TropicanaCasino.com and sister casino VirginCasino.com, this one is sticky. In other words, you can’t withdraw the bonus at any time. As soon as you complete your 1x wager, even if you win, the bonus disappears from your account for good because the casino takes it back.
Is the Tropicana Billboard Money Sharepot worth your time?
This is a difficult question to answer since it’s impossible to know ahead of time what your share of the Billboard Money Sharepot will be. However, if you participated in last month’s Sharepot or any other $10,000 Bonus Money Sharepots at this casino, you can have a good idea. Simply use your results in that promotion to estimate the approximate size of your bonus with a similar amount of play this time. If a previous bonus was less than you expected, consider increasing the amount of play in order to earn a bigger bonus.
Keep in mind that because you can only wager the bonus once and then can’t keep it, a tiny bonus will be almost useless. The size of the bonus needs to be bigger than with a cashable bonus in order to have a realistic chance to win more than a pittance.
At the same time, this promotion does have some good features. Based on all of the following, if you play at TropicanaCasino.com and it’s convenient for you to play there this weekend, I recommend that you take the casino up on this offer. Even if you don’t win much, and you probably won’t, the risk to your own bankroll is minimal.
It’s a promotion anyone can afford
Don’t want to make a deposit this weekend? No problem. No deposit is required. Are you a small bettor who has to turn down many bonuses because the wagering requirements are too steep? Again, no problem. As long as you can afford to wager just $50 one day this weekend, a piece of the Billboard Bonus Money Sharepot will be yours. Of course, the bonus will be very small if all you have is one ticket, but it’s better than no bonus at all.
Low cap on number of entries per person makes the prize distribution fairer for everyone
On the other hand, if you can afford to wager more than the minimum, you can easily earn additional tickets to guarantee yourself a bigger share of the Sharepot.
However, TropicanaCasino.com has placed a very reasonable limit on the maximum number of entries any individual player can have.The cap is five per day based on $250 in wagers. This stipulation prevents high rollers who can easily afford to bet thousands of dollars per day from hogging the lion’s share of the Sharepot and leaving crumbs for everybody else.
Guaranteed bonus–everybody who participates wins something
This is a Sharepot, not a drawing. The fundamental difference is that in most drawings, only a very small percentage of the participants win anything and the overwhelming majority walk away with nothing. With a Sharepot, all participants get a share.
Lastly, other than the money you risk during the promotion period to earn Sharepot tickets (which you would be risking anyway if you were simply playing and this promotion were not being offered), you risk nothing. You do have to wager your bonus, but only once, so the casino is footing the cost, not you.
In the worst case scenario, you lose betting the bonus. But even then, your account balance is not any lower than it was right before you got the bonus. On the other hand, you might get lucky and win.
The Bottom Line
Bigger bonuses are not always better bonuses, and they are definitely not better if the deposit and/or wagering requirements are way beyond what a player can afford. Much more likely than not, you will come away from this promotion with a very modest size bonus. But you’ll also be greatly relieved by how easy and affordable it was to get it.
The best way to view this weekend’s TropicanaCasino.com Billboard Bonus Money Sharepot, or any of this NJ online casino’s many other Sharepots, is to think of it as a low cost, fun way to get a probably small but guaranteed bonus
Besides, even if you win very little or not at all betting the Bonus Money, you might still be a big winner when playing this weekend to earn tickets for the Sharepot.
