NetEnt Sweepstakes at TropicanaCasino.com
The Scudamore’s Super Stakes $20,000 NetEnt Sweepstakes just ended. But whether you got a chance to participate or not, you can try your luck in another NetEnt Sweepstakes this week. Tropicana Online Casino is picking up where the last NetEnt giveaway left off with a brand new NetEnt Sweepstakes.
More great news is you have plenty of time–from Monday, May 20 through Memorial Day, Monday, May 27–to earn as many entries as you can.
This NetEnt giveaway is much smaller in scope than last week’s. The total prize pool is $2,000 rather than $20,000, with 70 winners to share in the bounty. All prizes are in the form of Bonus Money.
How to participate in the May 20-27 NetEnt Sweepstakes
If you’re a registered TropicanaCasino.com player, the chances are you are eligible to participate in this sweepstakes. You don’t necessarily have to live in New Jersey, as long as you have access to the Tropicana Online Casino games for New Jersey players. However, residents of New York, Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico are excluded.
The period for earning entries starts Monday, May 20 and continues until 11:59 p.m. Monday, May 27. For every $50 wagered on any of the 10 permitted NetEnt slots on any given day during the promotion period, you will earn one entry into the sweepstakes, up to a maximum of five per day if you wager $250 or more.
Therefore, since the promotion is eight days long, the maximum number of entries possible is 40. To earn this many entries you would need to play all eight days and wager $250 or more each day. However, if you miss one or more days and/or that is more wagering than you can comfortably handle, don’t worry about it. With 70 prizes up for grabs, you don’t need a lot of entries for a good shot to have your name picked, as the luck of the draw will be a big factor in the outcome.
Here are the 10 slot games you can choose from for earning your entries.
|Finn and the Swirly Spin|
|Guns N’ Roses|
|Dead or Alive|
|Coins of Egypt|
All of these slots are by NetEnt, so you won’t go wrong playing any of them. The NetEnt label is your assurance of everything you are looking for in a NJ online slot. You’ll invariably find a theme to grab your attention and hold your interest, a wide betting range suitable for almost any player, great entertainment, and a way above average return to player (RTP). And super exciting bonus features give you even more ways to win.
All NetEnt slots have an RTP of 96 percent or better.
What prizes can you win in the drawing?
Before the drawing even takes place, you have a very good chance to win simply playing these NetEnt slots. But maybe you will get really lucky and win again in the drawing.
On Tuesday, May 28, Tropicana Online Casino will hold a random drawing among all of the eligible entries to determine the 70 winners.
As you can see from the table below, 20 players will win $50 in Bonus Money and 50 additional players will win $20 in Bonus Money.
# of Winners Prize
|20||$50 Bonus Money|
|50||$20 Bonus Money|
Winners can expect to see the money in their account within 24 hours of the drawing, or at most, within three business days, in the event of technical difficulties.
Bonus Money wagering requirements
All Bonus Money awarded in this week’s NetEnt Sweepstakes is subject to the same wagering requirements and other terms and conditions as any other bonus you receive from TropicanaCasino.com (or sister NJ online casino VirginCasino.com). The wagering requirement is simply 1x the bonus. You can play any game you wish, and have up to 30 days to do so. Then as soon as you complete this very minimal amount of wagering (which you can probably do in one day–you certainly won’t need 30), you are free to withdraw any resulting winnings. However, you won’t get to keep the Bonus Money itself. Win or lose, as soon as you have finished wagering the bonus once, the casino takes it back and you never see it again.
Tropicana NetEnt Sweepstakes Pros and Cons
Like most NJ online casino promotions, this one has some great features and some that are not so great.
What could be better
The only features not to like in this promotion are the same ones that you face with all bonuses at this casino. First of all, you can’t keep the bonus–only the winnings. In addition, because you only get a chance to bet the bonus once, you are further limited in the amount you can win with it. With a traditional bonus, you get many opportunities to try to capitalize on a winning streak since you have to keep betting the bonus many times over in order to clear it. Here you get no opportunities to try to capitalize on a winning streak.
On the other hand, the flip side is that because you only have to wager the bonus once, there’s no risk to to your own bankroll at all. You are betting the bonus with casino’s money, not yours, so even if you don’t win, you are out nothing. In fact,if you don’t win, the balance in your online account would be exactly the same as it was before you got the bonus.
In addition, while a $50 or $20 bonus isn’t a big amount, by any means, especially when the casino limits you to just the winnings, it is not so tiny that betting it once is probably a complete waste of time.
Small players will appreciate the risk free nature of this bonus. Another feature in their favor is the very reasonable cap on the number of entries any one player can earn. This effectively prevents high rollers who are capable of betting thousands of dollars per day from dominating the field and seriously hurting the chances of everyone else. That won’t happen here with each bettor being limited to five entries per day based on $250 in wagers.
However, the No. 1 reason why to say yes to the Tropicana Online Casino NetEnt Sweepstakes is that it gets you to play some of the best online slots that this casino and the State of New Jersey have to offer. And as icing on the cake, you have two excellent chances of winning–first in your play to earn entries for the sweepstakes and later in the drawing. You could win both times, and that’s definitely worth a shot.
