Bonus Money Prize Draw at Tropicana Online
On Thursday, March 7 only, Tropicana Online Casino is giving its players a chance to earn a bonus simply by playing, just like you do any other day. No deposit is necessary. Granted the payout is only $10, but here’s the good news. Your chances of cashing in are excellent because you’re just in time for a special Bonus Money Prize Draw in which 300 lucky players will all be winners.
How to Earn Entries for this Week’s Bonus Money Prize Draw
This promotion is open to all registered TropicanaCasino.com players. However, the period for earning entries is today, Thursday, March 7 only.
The total prize pool is $3,000, so that’s a lot of Bonus Money waiting to be won. Tomorrow, Friday, March 8, a random drawing will decide the distribution of prizes. 300 lucky players will each receive $10 in Bonus Money.
In order to earn entries for tomorrow’s Bonus Money Prize Draw, simply play your favorite games, as usual. Every $50 wagered on any game will earn you one entry, up to a maximum of five if the total amount of your wagers is $250 or more. Since 300 players’ names will be chosen, even without the maximum number of entries, you still have a very good chance to win.
Bonus Money Wagering Requirements
All Bonus Money Prize Draw winners will receive their bonus within three business days. The prize is then subject to the the same wagering requirements and other terms and conditions as all other TropicanaCasino.com (and VirginCasino.com) bonuses.
You have up to 30 days to wager the bonus once on any game of your choosing. As soon as you do, you will be free to withdraw any resulting winnings. However, the bonus itself is sticky and therefore not available for withdrawal at any time. As soon as you complete your nominal 1x wager of the bonus, win or lose, the casino takes the bonus back.
Bonus Money Prize Draw Pros and Cons
Today, Thursday, March 7 completes a four-day Mardi Gras promotion on TropicanaCasino.com. Each day featured a different special offer, for that day only. To be honest, I don’t think any of the offers are great, but I chose this one because I thought it was the best of the bunch.
What Could Be Better
The Bonus Money Prize Draw has the same basic shortcomings as the other three offers. The amount of the bonus is so small that your chances of turning it into any meaningful size win are extremely slim. And the fact that you can only wager the bonus once and then can’t keep it–only your winnings–compounds the problem.
Why it’s still a good offer
On the other hand, assuming today is a convenient day for you to be playing at Tropicana Online Casino anyway, getting any kind of a bonus is nice, especially since you don’t have to deposit anything, play a lot, or risk a huge chunk of your bankroll.
Tropicana is limiting the number of entries to a very reasonable five per person based on $250 in wagers. This levels the playing field, keeps high rollers from dominating the entries, and gives all players a fair chance to win. In fact, with 300 prizewinners in all, you have a much better shot of having your name chosen than in most drawings.
Then, if you win, the wagering requirements for the Bonus Money are as reasonable as you’ll ever see. It’s a $10 bonus, so $10 is all you have to wager, and you can pick any game in the casino. More importantly, regardless of how you fare betting the bonus, the casino is staking you so you can’t possibly lose any of your own money.
In other words, it’s impossible to be a big loser participating in this promotion. You probably won’t be a big winner either, but it’s still possible. If luck is really smiling on you, then you could actually hit the jackpot twice–first in your play to earn entries for the Bonus Money Prize Draw and again in your wager to clear the bonus!
