Chaka Khan Coming to the Tropicana


 Drumroll please. R&B singer, percussionist, and “Queen of Funk” Chaka Khan is coming to town!

But not for long. She will be headlining at the Tropicana Atlantic City for one night only, Saturday, August 12.

Chance to Win a Free Stay at the Tropicana Plus Free Tickets to See Chaka Khan

Tropicana Atlantic City is a resort you can always count on for top of the line entertainment, whether it’s a major headliner, up-and-coming-artist, or a blast from the past. However, unless you’re a high roller, the cost of a stay at the resort this time of year is sky high. Add on a pair of show tickets, and the cost for many would-be players and visitors could be prohibitive. That’s why this week’s brand new promotion for Tropicana online players, with an opportunity to win both an overnight stay and tickets to see Chaka Khan, couldn’t be more perfectly timed.

Or You Can Win Bonus Money

Only two lucky players will win the top prize of an overnight stay at the Tropicana and a pair of tickets to the Chaka Khan concert. So the odds for a free August weekend getaway to Atlantic City aren’t great. But the good news is that $5,000 Bonus Dollars will also be given away. 89 other players will have their names drawn, each of whom will win from $20 Bonus Dollars up to $250 Bonus Dollars!

How to Participate in the Chaka Khan and Bonus Money Drawing

This promotion is not open to residents of the following states and territories: New York Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico. Otherwise, any registered player is welcome to participate.

One week from today, Tropicana Online Casino will be giving away two Grand Prizes consisting of a one night stay at the Tropicana Casino & Resort in Atlantic City and two tickets to the Chaka Khan Show, plus 89 Bonus Money Prizes. The casino states that the value of the Grand Prize is $400.

Earn Up to Five Entries Per Day

For your chance to win, all you have to do is log into your account and play during the week-long promotion. The first day for earning entries is today, Monday, July 17, and the last day for earning entries is next Sunday, July 23.

Entries can be earned playing any game. Each time you wager $50 on a single calendar day during the promotion, you earn one entry into the drawing, with the total number of entries per person per day capped at five.

In other words, you must wager at least $50 on any one calendar day for that day’s wagers to count. However, each multiple of $50 wagered that same day, up to $250, earns you one additional entry,. This gives players who wager $250 or more on one day a total of five entries for the day.

Therefore, the maximum number of entries for any individual player is 35 (5×7). The more days you play and wager $250 or more, the more entries you earn and the better your chances. It’s as simple as that.

Distribution of Prizes

On Monday, July 24, a random drawing will be held among all eligible entries to determine the winners. The distribution of prizes will be as follows:


# of Prizes Prize
2 A one night stay at Tropicana Atlantic City and a pair of tickets to see Chaka Khan
4 $250 Bonus Money
5 $200 Bonus Money
10 $100 Bonus Money
20 $50 Bonus Money
50 $20 Bonus Money


All prize winners will be notified via email within three business days and will have 14 calendar days thereafter to claim their prize. All prizes are non-exchangeable and non-transferable.

Bonus Money Wagering Requirements

Winners of Bonus Dollars will need to meet the casino’s wagering requirements before being allowed to withdraw any bonus-related winnings. If you’re a regular player on (or sister casino, you should already know the drill. That’s because the terms and conditions for withdrawing any Bonus Money-related winnings are exactly in all of their Bonus Money giveaways.

The wagering requirement for the bonus is as follows: Play the bonus 1x on any game. No rush either, if you prefer to wait, as you have up to 30 days to complete these wagers. Then, as soon as you do, you can go ahead and withdraw any winnings.

The catch is that you won’t be able to withdraw the bonus, too. As soon as you wager the bonus once, the casino takes it back!

Is the Chaka Khan and Bonus Money Giveaway Worth Your Time?

If is an online casino where you like to play, then playing this week could be even more rewarding for you. If the two Grand Prizes were the only prizes being given away in next Monday’s drawing, I would say this promotion is probably not worth your time due to the slim chance (even with the maximum of 35 entries) of winning. But the fact that 89 additional players will win Bonus Dollars changes my answer.

Because all Bonus Money prizes at this casino merely act like a match play–extra money being given to you purely for wagering purposes, and single use only, that you can never actually withdraw–in tiny amounts, they are almost useless. So it’s good to see that more than 40% of the Bonus Money prizes in this drawing are over $50. In fact, 19 players will win prizes of $100, $200, or $250 Bonus Dollars!  With a little good luck, these larger prizes enable sufficient extra free bets to potentially have a significant positive impact on your account balance bottom line even after the bonus itself is taken away. Even the smallest prize of $20 Bonus Dollars, while not great, is not so tiny that a significant win, barring a miracle, would be out of the question.

Of course, you could bet the Bonus Money and lose it. But even then, since it’s the casino’s money–not yours–and you’re only betting it once, the worst that can happen is that you wind up with the same amount of money you had just before getting the bonus. You wouldn’t be any richer, but you wouldn’t be any worse off either, so no harm done.

Cap of Five Entries Per Day is Good, but Small Bettors Should Still Be Careful

Unlike some online casino drawings which allow players to accumulate entries based on how much they deposit or wager, with no specified limit, this promotion requires no deposit at all and caps the daily betting for earning entries at $250. As a result, instead of giving high rollers a field day and seriously hurting the chances of everyone else, a much broader base of players can participate with a realistic hope of winning.

Even so, don’t feel you have to wager $250 a day for seven straight days (that’s $1,750 in one week) if this amount is a lot for your bankroll or more than usually play. There is no guarantee that your name will be picked just because you have 35 entries. Conversely, you can win with a much fewer number of entries. Either way, the luck of the draw will decide.


In summary, the current Chaka Khan and Bonus Money giveaway at is an easy to enter fun promotion recommended for all levels of players.
