Sunday Bonus Sweepstakes at Resorts
ResortsCasino.com has just introduced another way to win. If you’re a ResortsCasino.com player, any Sunday can be Super Sunday. All you have to do is log into your account and play for a chance to win from $10 to $200 in Bonus Money. No deposit is necessary. $1,000 in Bonus Money is being given out every Sunday, so you might as well give it a shot.
How to Enter the ResortsCasino.com Sunday Bonus Sweepstakes
Participating in this promotion is easy. All you have to do is the following:
- Log into your com account today and every Sunday.
- Go to My Account and click on My Bonuses.
- Click on Claim Now next to Sunday.
That’s all there is to it, except for one thing. The more you play, the more entries you earn for the Monday drawing. For every 10 Reward Points earned, you receive one entry.
What You Can Win
Every Monday, a random drawing will take place among all eligible entries to determine the 50 winners for the week. Here is how the prizes will be distributed.
All bonuses awarded in this promotion will be credited to players’ accounts within 72 hours of the drawing. However, don’t assume you can withdraw the bonus just yet, because you can’t. Prior to being allowed to withdraw either the bonus itself or any associated winnings, you will need to meet the following wagering requirements:
Slots: 5x bonus
Any other game: 25x bonus
Be sure to check the Bonus Page beforehand for the allotted time to clear the bonus.
How Does the Sunday Bonus Sweepstakes Promotion at ResortsCasino.com Compare With Other Promotions
This promotion is a good one, but not as good as it could be.
Terms and Conditions Could Be Clearer
For starters, the terms and conditions for the Sunday Bonus Sweepstakes could be spelled out more clearly on the website.
For example, the website states that for every 10 Reward Points earned playing slots, you receive one entry into the drawing. However, I verified with the Resorts Marketing Department that all games count, so you don’t have to play slots. The advantage to playing slots is that they are the fastest way to earn Reward Points.
No Reward Points on Bonus Money Wagers
Secondly, it should be noted that even though no deposit is required, players only earn Reward Points on wagers made with their own money (either what is already in your account or newly deposited funds) and not with the Bonus Money. This contrasts sharply with BorgataCasino.com rewarding full loyalty points on all of your wagers, including those made with Bonus Money, on all promotions.
No Cap on No. of Entries Per Player
Thirdly, other NJ online casinos (Borgata, Tropicana, and Virgin, for example) place a cap on the number of drawing entries that can be earned based on a single day’s play. There is no mention of any such cap in this promotion, however, which gives high rollers a field day and significantly impacts on the chances for smaller players to win a prize. What high roller would want a $10 bonus (the smallest prize in this drawing) anyway?
If you’re not a high roller and wish to participate in this promotion, don’t increase your play to way more than usual just to rack up more entries. It’s not worth it. Take your chances and play as you normally do and hope you get lucky.
Time to Clear Bonus Should Be Disclosed
Lastly, no information is included on the website about how much time you are given to clear the bonus. Even when I asked the Casino Marketing Department, I could not get an answer, so you won’t know until you actually receive the bonus and claim it. Players have a right to know this important information ahead of time. It makes a big difference in terms of both planning your time and how much money you need in your account based on whether you are being given a week or longer to clear the bonus or just 24 hours.
These criticisms aside, if you are a ResortsCasino.com player and you have the time to play on Sundays, you should certainly do so. Come Monday, there could be a big bonus waiting for you.
