Play and Earn a Bonus at Harrah’s Online
If you have an account at Harrah’s Online Casino and have time to play between now and Sunday night, you should definitely do so. In addition to earning Reward Credits and Tier Points like you do for all of your play, Harrah’s is offering you a special opportunity to scoop up bigger rewards. Play and Earn a Bonus. How can you say no to that?
How to Participate in the Harrah’s Online Casino Play and Earn Promotion
The February into March weather forecast for Atlantic City and other parts of New Jersey is somewhat uncertain. But for HarrahsCasino.com players, the forecast is all sunshine. That’s because the period for this NJ online casino’s special Play and Earn bonus starts now, Thursday, February 28 and extends all weekend long till 11:59 p.m. Sunday, March 3.
Here’s what you need to do if you would like to participate.
- Log into your HarrahsCasino.com account anytime during the 2/28-3/3 Promotion period, but the sooner the better.
- Make a single qualifying deposit using the code PLAY19.
- Play your favorite online casino games.
Don’t forget to check the marketing collateral to make sure your deposit is at least the specified minimum amount to qualify for this offer. Also keep in mind that you can only claim this offer once and deposits made at the Caesars Atlantic City casino cashier’s cage or through PayNearMe don’t count.
Although the promotion ends at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, March 3, according to the Harrah’s website, you might not actually receive your bonus until Thursday, March 7. Meanwhile, you can use the chart in the next section to figure out what your bonus will be.
What will your bonus be?
You will receive one online tier credit for every $20 you wager during the promotion period. However, you will need to earn at least 25 online tier credits to qualify for a bonus. In other words, in order to receive a Play and Earn bonus, over the course of the four day promotion period, you will need to wager a total of at least $500.
The following table shows the three possible bonus amounts you can receive based on your play.
|Earning Hurdle||Bonus Amount|
|25 Online Tier Credits||$5 Bonus|
|100 Online Tier Credits||$10 Bonus|
|250 Online Tier Credits||$20 Bonus|
As you can see, if only earn the minimum of 25 online tier credits, your bonus will only be $5. However, if you accumulate 100 online tier credits, which will require $2,000 in wagers, you will receive a $10 bonus. The largest bonus you can receive from this promotion is $20. However, that is contingent on wagering a total of $5,000.
Wagering Requirements for the Bonus
Since all of these bonuses are small, it would be nice if once you get your bonus you could simply keep the money with no further wagering requirements. But you know that’s not the case.
The Play and Earn bonus is subject to Harrah’s usual wagering requirements for bonuses. Depending on your game choice, here is the additional amount you need to wager to clear your bonus.
- Slots: 5x bonus
- Roulette: 25x bonus
- Video Poker or Blackjack: 50x bonus
The good news is that if you clear the bonus with slots, depending on the size of the bonus, all you have to wager is $25, $50, or at most $100. The wagering requirements for clearing the bonus playing any other game are substantially greater.
Additional Terms and Conditions
You have up to seven days to complete the necessary wagering. As soon as you do, provided the bonus has not yet expired, both the bonus and any additional winnings resulting from it (or whatever is left of this money) will become available for you to withdraw. However, canceling the bonus, 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.
Is the Play and Earn bonus offer worth your time?
As long as it is convenient for you to be playing online at HarrahsCasino.com anyway during the promotion period, yes, of course, you should opt in to this promotion and try to qualify for a bonus. However, you will have to do a lot of playing for only a small reward so keep that in mind. Under no circumstances should you increase your play beyond what you can comfortably afford. If you don’t earn a bonus or only earn a $5 bonus, as disappointing as that will be, it’s not the end of the world. There will be many other opportunities for you to earn bonuses which will give you better bang for your buck.
What I do like about this promotion is that all games are given equal weight in earning the needed tier credits to qualify for a bonus. If you’re a small player, start your play on day 1 of the promotion period and play every day as opposed to trying to squeeze all of your play into one or two marathon sessions. That way meeting the $500 or $1,000 wagering benchmark should be more manageable.
Lastly, all players should find the $25-$100 wagering requirement to clear the bonus with slots a piece of cake even in one day, and you have up to seven days. However, don’t just play any random slot. Maximize your chances of winning with a slot whose return to player (RTP) is 96 percent or better.
