Tropicana Concert and Bonus Giveaway


Tropicana concert and bonus giveaways are always worth playing for, if for no other reason than the enhanced odds due to the huge number of bonus money winners. Playing, just like you usually do, but with the added incentive of earning tickets into a drawing, is also fun. The current promotion is no exception. Two lucky players will win an overnight stay at the Tropicana Atlantic City plus a pair of tickets to see the band O.A.R. on Saturday, October 28, and $5,000 in bonus money will be shared by 89 other players.

Granted, the casino’s offer of only two top prizes is disappointing. However, extra money in your online account is always welcome. Also, bonuses have an incredibly cheap wagering requirement of just 1x the bonus, so in effect, you are getting a free shot to try to win with it!

How to Participate in the Upcoming Drawing for a Tropicana Concert and Stay at the Resort or Bonus Money

The period for earning tickets for this drawing got underway Monday, October 9, and continues until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, October 15. So even if you start today rather than Monday, you still have plenty of time to rack up tickets.

Every time you wager $50 on any game, you earn one entry into the drawing, up to a maximum of five per day. Therefore, if you were to play all seven days of the promotion and wager $250 or more each day, you would receive 35 tickets–the maximum number possible. However, $1,750 is a lot of wagering, and even the top prize is worth only a fraction of that amount. If you start your play today (Thursday), you can still earn up to 20 tickets and have an excellent chance to win.

Keep in mind that this is a random drawing where anything can happen. Even just one ticket could be all you need to win while, on the other hand, a player could have 35 tickets and still not be picked for a prize. Therefore, under no circumstances, should you be playing any more than you can comfortably afford. By the way, no deposit is necessary, and a deposit will not increase your chances of winning.

You do not need to be a New Jersey resident to opt into this promotion. As long as you can play in New Jersey and don’t live in one of the excluded locations listed in the rules, you are welcome to participate. The excluded locations are New York, Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico.

What You Can Win

On Monday, October 16, a random drawing will take place to decide the winners. The table presented below shows how the 91 prizes will be distributed.

Tropicana Concert and Overnight Stay Details and More About O.A.R.

The concert will be in the Tropicana Showroom on Saturday, October 28 with a starting time of 8 p.m. The overnight stay at the Tropicana Atlantic City is for the same night. The prize does not cover the cost of travel, food and beverage, or other incidentals. According to the website, the Tropicana concert and overnight stay total prize is valued at $400.

In case you are not already familiar with the band O.A.R., these musicians have been around for a long time (since 1996). O.A.R., which is short for “Of a Revolution,” is a reggae band that originated in Rockville, MD. In addition to releasing eight albums, they put on many shows. The band is also known for its extensive charitable work, including support for such causes as youth education, Habitat for Humanity, Paralyzed Veterans of America, and Special Olympics.

October 28 Halloween Happenings

October 28 also happens to be the date of Tropicana’s big Halloween celebration. Every year the Trop goes all out for Halloween, so whether you’re attending the concert or not, this is an event you don’t want to miss.

Guess the No. of Candy Corn on Display

If you arrive at the Trop before 6 p.m., head for the Palm Walk and guess how many candy corn you think are in the display. You get one free guess only, which you can enter in any Trop Advantage comp kiosk machine. Or, if more convenient, you can enter the contest on any day prior to October 28th. At 6:30 p.m. sharp on the 28th, the casino will announce the winner. That lucky person will receive $1,000 FREE SLOT PLAY!

Early Evening Boardwalk Entertainment

Starting at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, October 28, there will be a special Halloween theme light and sound show on the Boardwalk in front of the Tropicana. Afterwards, if you’re not seeing the Tropicana concert that evening, you can stay on the Boardwalk and watch a reenactment of the dance from Michael Jackson’s Thriller video.

Parties, Drink Specials, Costume Contests, and Prizes All Night Long

Of course, it’s still much too early to call it a night. There will be lots of parties, drink specials with scary names, costume contests, and chances to win prizes throughout the property all night long! We will have more details for you right here on this website about what’s going on where closer to the event.

Bonus Money Wagering Requirement

Bonus Money winners are required to wager the bonus 1x prior to being permitted to withdraw any winnings therefrom. Any game is okay and you have up to 30 days to complete the wagering. However, you won’t be able to keep the bonus itself. That’s because as soon as this wagering is completed, the casino takes the bonus back. Like all Bonus Money prizes at and sister casino, it is a nonwithdrawable bonus.


The Tropicana concert, hotel stay, and bonus money giveaway promotion ongoing this week is clearly worth playing for, so if is a site you enjoy, you should take advantage of this promotion. However, past promotions of this type have given away five rather than two hotel stays and pairs of concert tickets, and 10 would be even better.

It would also be a lot better if you could keep the bonus money, but don’t expect that to happen at this casino anytime soon. However, the casino is being more than fair, only requiring you to bet the bonus one time. Imagine if you had to play the bonus 20x or more and even then couldn’t keep it! Because you are only wagering the bonus once, there is no further risk to your own bankroll at all. You are getting a free ride with the casino’s money!

As for the October 28th Halloween bash, it’s not a day too soon to start thinking about what costume you’ll wear. Then make it a point to head out to the Trop for a long fright-filled, but fun-filled night. You’ll be screaming with delight.
