Firecracker Bonus at


Hopefully, with the combination of great deals the NJ online casinos have been offering over the past few days and whatever else you have planned for the holiday, you are already having a bang-up Fourth of July. However, savvy players like you can never have too many bonuses, so here’s another hot offer to add to your arsenal. It’s the Firecracker Bonus!

     A 40% match on deposits of up to $400!

 Talk about getting more bang for your buck!

How to Access the July 4 Firecracker Bonus

This promotion starts today, July 4, and continues until 11:59 p.m. Thursday, July 6. The casino is offering a generous 40% match on your first deposit of $25 or more, all the way up to $160 bonus money on a deposit of $400 or more!

 Here is what you need to do to participate and receive your bonus:

  • Log into your account anytime during the July 4-6 promotional period.
  • Enter the code JULY40 in the deposit screen on the Cashier’s page and make a deposit of at least $25.
A Few Important Notes

Be sure to enter the promotion code carefully. The required code is JULY40 (because the bonus is a 40% deposit match), not JULY4.

The minimum bonus you can receive with this promotion is $10 (on a $25 deposit), and the maximum bonus possible is $160 (on a deposit of $400 or greater). If you want to deposit more than $400, that’s fine, but your bonus will not increase. There is no advantage to depositing more than $400 unless you will be playing for sufficiently high stakes to need the extra money in your account.

Furthermore, the Firecracker Bonus can only be claimed once, so you will only receive a bonus on your first deposit. Deposits made at the Caesars Atlantic City Casino Cashier’s Cage or via PayNearMe don’t count.

Wagering Requirements

As soon as you make the qualifying deposit, the Firecracker Bonus will be added to your account. However, before you will be permitted to withdraw the bonus, associated deposit, or any resulting winnings, the bonus is subject to the following wagering requirements:

  • Slots: 5x bonus
  • Roulette: 25x bonus
  • Video Poker or Blackjack: 50x bonus

 Players are given up to 14 days to complete the wagering.

Is the Firecracker Bonus a Bang-Up Offer?

We commend Harrah’s Online Casino for offering players another bonus on July 4th itself. If that doesn’t put a big exclamation point on the day’s and evening’s excitement, I don’t know what does!

Those of you who took advantage of the last promotion mentioned here, the 50% bonus the casino offered between June 28 and July 1, will immediately see that the wagering terms for this offer are exactly the same. What’s different is a 40% bonus this time instead of a 50% bonus, but to make up for that, instead of being a fixed bonus of just $25, you have the opportunity for a $160 bonus.

 If you can afford the $400 to qualify for the maximum bonus of $160, that would be a very nice boost to your playing bankroll and enough ammunition to potentially score a nice win. However, small players can scale down appropriately and still receive a large enough bonus to make this offer worthwhile. For example, a deposit of $100 would be in most players’ budgets and yield a bonus of $40.

Take Advantage of the Two Weeks Wagering Period

Because you are given a full two weeks to clear the Firecracker Bonus, you can take your time. No need to jump up your wagering out of your comfort zone just to meet the full requirements in one day.

Still, if you decide to clear the bonus with the relatively low house edge video poker or blackjack, instead of slots, the playthrough requirements jump to a hefty 50x the bonus, 10x as much play as with slots.

In other words, to clear the maximum bonus of $160 requires a total of $800 in slot play, but a whopping $8,000 if you choose to play video poker or blackjack. Clearing the minimum bonus of $10 would require only $50 in slot play, but $500 playing video poker or blackjack.

Keeping these figures in mind, taking advantage of the option to spread your play over a two week period is highly advisable. In addition, if you would rather not rely on slots exclusively, here’s how you can decrease the total wagering requirement over what it would be for video poker or blackjack alone. Go ahead and play one of those games, but mix up your play to include some slot play as well.


Many of the NJ online casinos, including Harrah’s, have gone above and beyond this week to give you a bigger barrage of bonuses than usual. While each individual bonus may not be fantastic on its own, once you get your hands on a string of them, you start seeing results. If you’re a player, the Firecracker Bonus is a great way to close out July 4th holiday week with a bang!
