Labor Day Giveaway at VirginCasino.com

 

There is no doubt that VirginCasino.com is a fun site to play on, and one reason why is the continual parade of exciting special offers and promotions. This holiday weekend is no exception. In fact, the casino currently has two special Labor Day giveaway offers going.

So if you’re a VirginCasino.com account holder and have some extra time on on your hands to play this weekend, why not take advantage of the opportunity.

Labor Day Giveaway #1: Chance to Win a $100 Omaha Steaks Gift Card

This promotion started yesterday, September 1, but continues through 11: 59 p.m. Labor Day. The casino is giving away 10 Omaha Steaks Gift Cards worth $100 each.

Each time you wager $50 on any game, you will receive one drawing entry, up to a maximum of five per day (if you wager $250 or more). The drawing will take place on Tuesday, September 5.  Winners will be notified by email within three business days and will have 14 calendar days thereafter to claim their prize.

Labor Day Giveaway #2: Up to $75 Playback Bonus Money

As long as you’re going to be playing on the site anyway, you might as well give yourself some insurance just in case luck doesn’t go your way. That insurance comes in the form of a Playback Bonus.

Winning would be far better, of course, but if you play any of the eight eligible slot games and show a net loss, VirginCasino.com will put a 15% Playback Bonus up to $75 right back into your account.

Playback Bonus Promotional Period

The promotional period for the Playback Bonus also started Friday, September 1, and runs through 11:59 p.m. Monday, September 4. One nice feature of this promotion is that the number of different days you play and show a net loss doesn’t matter. The casino will determine your bonus eligibility based on all of your play combined during the four day promotional period.

Eligible Games

These are the eight slot games included in this promotion. You can play any game or combination of games from this list.

  • Tiki Island
  • Tiki Totems
  • Jin’s Jungle
  • Secrets of the Phoenix
  • Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood
  • Fantasini: Master of Mystery
  • Motorhead
  • Cleopatra Plus

Minimum and Maximum Bonus

Based on your play, on Tuesday, September 5, the casino will determine and advise you how much your Playback Bonus, if any, will be, and you will receive same within three days. The minimum bonus is $1, based on a net loss of $6.67. The maximum bonus is $75, which will only be given if you lose $500 or more.

Playback Bonus Wagering Requirements

The bonus associated with this promotion is a Playback Bonus, not a Payback Bonus, meaning that you cannot simply withdraw it as cash. In fact, you won’t be able to withdraw the bonus at any time. Instead, you have to wager it and hope you win.

Fortunately, the wagering requirements are minimal: 1x the bonus on any game, and you have up to 30 days.  As soon as this wagering is completed, you can withdraw all of your winnings, if any. But, win or lose, the casino takes the bonus back.

Are the Labor Day Giveaway Offers at VirginCasino.com Worth Your Time?

The answer to this question is maybe. A $100 Omaha Steaks Gift Card is a great prize. The steaks are delicious, and another plus is they can be kept frozen for a long period of time. So you don’t need to have a large family or be hosting a big party to enjoy them.

Unfortunately, your odds of winning this prize are not good since only 10 players’ names will be drawn. However, entering doesn’t cost any more than playing like you normally would, and meanwhile, you might have good luck at the slots or tables and win more than $100. So you might as well take advantage of this promotion, too, and see what happens.

As for the Playback Bonus promotion, that’s not a valid reason in itself to play, but if you’re going to be playing anyway, it lessens the sting of a loss. While it’s possible that you will be luckier with the Playback Bonus than in the losing session(s) qualifying you for the bonus, you probably won’t win enough to erase the loss entirely. That’s because the bonus only amounts to 15% of the total net loss, which is a very small percentage.

But on the bright side, even if you win minimally with the bonus or not at all, that’s the casino’s money that’s being wagered, not your own anymore. In other words, you are getting a free ride for a chance to turn your luck around.  So even in the worst case scenario where you lose the entire bonus on top of your own money, you’re no worse off than you were before you got the bonus.
