Staycation Sweepstakes


Is getting away on a well deserved vacation impossible right now, either because work or home responsibilities intervene, or because an expensive trip to a luxury destination is not in the budget? Don’t despair. You can still enjoy your Staycation, with a little help from

This week Tropicana Online Casino is offering the perfect remedy to your stay at home blues with a special Staycation Giveaway Sweepstakes that you can enter from the comfort of your own home!

The promotion started yesterday, Monday, June 26 and continues all week long until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, July 2. Payout day for the 94 winners is Monday, July 3.

How to Participate in the Staycation Giveaway Promotion

Assuming you already have enough money in your account to play, no deposit is necessary to participate.  All you have to do is play your favorite online games, as usual, for a chance to win a very nice prize—either a gift card or Bonus Dollars.

You don’t have to be a resident of New Jersey, but you do have to be a legal resident of the U.S. and you do need to be physically situated in New Jersey while playing. Also, this promotion is not open to residents of New York, Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, or Puerto Rico.

Every $50 that you wager (on any game) on any one calendar day during the promotional period, gives you one entry into the drawing, up to a maximum of five entries per day (if you wager $250 or more). So the maximum number of entries possible, if you play all seven days of the promotion and wager at least $250 per day, is 35. If you missed day 1, yesterday, and start today, you can still earn up to 30 entries.

Distribution of Prizes

On Monday, July 3, a random drawing will take place to determine the 94 winners. The distribution of prizes will be as follows:


# of Prizes Prize
1 $500 Home Depot Card
2 $300 Wayfair Gift Card
2 $200 Sears Gift Card
4 $250 Bonus Money*
5 $200 Bonus Money
10 $100 Bonus Money
20 $50 Bonus Money
50 $20 Bonus Money


Only one prize per person. Prizes are not exchangeable or transferable, and no cash alternatives will be offered. All winners will be notified within three business days of the drawing and will have 14 calendar days thereafter to claim their prize.

Wagering Requirements

As with other Bonus Money prizes at this casino, any Bonus Money won in this promotion is subject to a wagering requirement of 1x the bonus. Play any game you wish within 30 days, and any associated winnings will be yours to keep. However, you won’t be able to withdraw the bonus, too, even after meeting the wagering requirements, since the casino takes the bonus back.

Is the Tropicana Online Casino Staycation Promotion Worthwhile?

Yes–The Prizes Are Worth Playing For

If you’re a registered player and plan on playing there this week, by all means enter this promotion. Any of the gift cards would come in very handy for anyone wanting to make substantial home improvements or simply purchase some extra cooking or entertainment equipment. And since the prize is in the form of a gift card, you can pick out something you like and need, rather than be stuck with a big bulky item you have no use for at all.

Unfortunately, there are only five gift card prizes, and the other 89 are all in the form of non-redeemable bonus dollars. However, the Bonus Money prizes are quite generous, starting at $20 and going all the way up to $250. Since the bonus itself is non-redeemable, it’s nice that at least there’s a chance to have enough extra ammunition with the bonus to score a nice win.

Yes–There Are Lots of Prizes So You Have a Better Chance

Even if you don’t win a big prize, with 94 prizes being given out, you have a very good chance to win something. In addition, because there is a cap of 5 entries per day per person, you don’t have to worry about high rollers being the only ones with a realistic chance of winning.

If you can afford to wager the $250 per day necessary to earn the maximum number of entries, you should do so to give yourself better odds. Otherwise, simply play what you can afford. All you need is one ticket ($50 in wagers), and you’re still in the drawing and can still win.

Two Promotions for the Price of One

By the way, the Tropicana Online Casino Staycation promotion is being offered simultaneously with the Tropicana Sharepot promotion I highlighted on this site yesterday. The qualifications for earning entries are identical. Therefore, as long as you are logged in and playing,  presumably, you can be picking up entries for both of these promotions at the same time, with the same wagers!
