Birdie Bonus at TropicanaCasino.com
It’s a rare day in June (or any other month) when Tropicana Online Casino isn’t offering its players a bonus, and this mid-June weekend is no exception. In celebration of the U.S. Open tournament, TropicanaCasino.com will give you a 10% match on your net deposit this weekend up to $50 in bonus money. You don’t have to be a golf fan to participate. As long as you have a TropicanaCasino.com account and can make at least one deposit sometime this weekend, the “Birdie Bonus” is yours!
How to Access the TropicanaCasino.com “Birdie Bonus”
Unlike many other deposit match bonuses which are based only on your first deposit during the promotional period, all deposits from Friday, June 16 through Sunday, June 18 count. Your total net deposit during that time period (all deposits minus all withdrawals) will determine the size of your bonus.
The minimum net deposit is only $20. However, keep in mind that the bonus is only 10%. So if all you deposit is the minimum, your bonus will be 1/10 of that amount or $2, hardly worth the bother. In order to get the maximum bonus of $50, you need to have a net deposit of $500.
In addition to making this deposit, before you can get your bonus, you need to wager your deposit 1x. Any game is okay. You have until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, June 18 to complete this wagering.
On Monday, June 19, the casino will determine your bonus, following which the money will be credited to your account within 24 hours.
You then have 30 days to meet the very modest 1x the bonus wagering requirement. Any game is okay for this wagering, too.
As soon as the bonus wagering requirement has been met, you are free to withdraw any associated winnings and, of course, whatever remains of your deposit. However, the bonus itself won’t be available for withdrawal then or at any time. The casino takes the bonus back.
Is the TropicanaCasino.com “Birdie Bonus” Worth Your Time?
A 10% match on your deposit is nothing to rave about. On the other hand, this NJ online casino offers so many that after a while their value increases. But that’s not what makes the Birdie Bonus and other offers like it worthwhile as much as the incredibly small wagering requirement of just 1x the bonus.
Granted, you also have to deposit $500 and wager it in order to qualify for the maximum bonus of $50, which might be difficult for some players. But you only have to wager this money once. Therefore, if you confine your wagering to the games with the lowest house edge (i.e., video poker and blackjack), even if you fail to win, your bankroll shouldn’t take a huge hit. With proper play, at the very least, you should be able to retain a good chunk of your original stake. You’re not going to lose the whole thing.
Then, once you get the bonus, you get a free ride. Since the bonus also only needs to be wagered once, there is no further risk at all to your bankroll. As soon as you complete this wagering, any winnings from both the bonus and your deposit, plus whatever is left of the deposit, are all available for withdrawal.
Summary and Conclusion
In summary, the TropicanaCasino.com Birdie Bonus is an okay offer because there is very little risk to your bankroll. However, the downside of this promotion is that you probably won’t win much either, especially if your deposit and bonus are the minimum or close to the minimum. Furthermore, you don’t get to keep the bonus. Its only use to you is to provide a small boost to your bankroll temporarily.
If you plan to play at TropicanaCasino.com this weekend anyway, you might as well make a deposit and collect the 10% Birdie Bonus. Barring a miracle, it won’t make you rich, but it won’t send you to the poorhouse either.
