Monster Million Trop Points Giveaway
This week TropicanaCasino.com continues its celebration of Halloween with a brand new set of prizes waiting to be won. And this time, they might have outdone even themselves by offering two great giveaways simultaneously. Here we‘ll tell you all about their Monster Million Trop Points Giveaway. Just like the title of the promotion suggests–the prizes up for grabs are not the usual Bonus Dollars, but Trop Points, which can be converted into Bonus Money.
The casino will be giving away a total of up to a million Trop Points. So even with a lot of participants, there’s plenty of prize points to go around. The more you play, the larger your share of the Sharepot!
In another post, you will be given the full details on another TropicanaCasino.com offer this week–the Jack-O-Lantern Giveaway, where 200 players will win a share of $7,000 in Bonus Money!
When and How to Earn Tickets for the Monster Million Trop Points Giveaway
This promotion started Monday, October 30 and continues until 11:59 p.m. Thursday, November 2. For each $10 wagered by any player during the promotional period, the casino will add one Trop Point to the Sharepot, up to a maximum of one million Trop Points. You can earn tickets towards the Sharepot based on your play. For every $50 wagered on any game on any one calendar day during the promotion, you earn one ticket, up to a maximum of five tickets per day.
What You Can Win
Distribution of Rewards
Each participant’s percentage (share) of the Sharepot will be calculated by dividing the total number of tickets that player has earned by the total number of Sharepot Tickets earned by all participants combined. For example, if the total number of Sharepot Tickets earned by everybody is 100 and you earn 5 of those tickets, your Sharepot Percentage is 5%. If the total Sharepot consists of 1,000 Trop Points, you will earn 50 Trop Points as your share.
On Friday, November 3, the casino will determine how many Trop Points each participant has earned, and within 24 hours (or three business days in the event of technical difficulties), the points will be credited to players’ accounts.
As per the Trop Points Rules posted on the website, players can then convert their newly earned Trop Points into Bonus Money.
Bonus Money Wagering Requirements
All Bonus Money earned in this promotion is subject to the same wagering requirements and other terms and conditions as other TropicanaCasino.com and VirginCasino.com bonuses awarded to current players. You have up to 30 days to wager the Bonus Money 1x on any game. As soon as this wagering is completed, you are free to withdraw any resulting winnings. However, the bonus itself cannot be withdrawn. It’s a sticky bonus that the casino takes back as soon as you satisfy the tiny wagering requirement.
Is the Monster Million Trop Points Giveaway Worth Your Time?
Those of you who are new to Sharepots may be wondering if this promotion is as good as it is hyped up to be. The information that follows will give you a good idea what to expect.
For starters, one thing is reasonably certain. Contrary to the promotion’s title, unless you hit a Megabucks jackpot, participating won’t make you an instant millionaire. But you might wind up with a profit with minimal risk, and there’s nothing wrong with that at all.
Sharepots vs. Drawings
Don’t count on the casino giving away a million Trop Points, as that will entail participating players wagering a total of $10 million! But whatever the size of the Sharepot winds up being, if this is a casino you like to play at, you might as well grab your share.
Many NJ online casinos hold drawings, but Tropicana Online Casino also offers Sharepot giveaways, like this one, as an alternative. The distinguishing feature about Sharepots, which many players prefer, is that instead of the prizes going to only a small percentage of all the entrants, everyone who participates is a winner. Furthermore, the amount each person wins is not determined randomly, like in a drawing, but purely by amount of play.
In some Sharepots, the size of the prize pool is fixed in advance (i.e., the casino sets aside $7,000 Bonus Dollars) and then distributes the Bonus Money based on play. This Sharepot works differently inasmuch as what’s at stake is Trop Points (which are convertible to Bonus Dollars) and the size of the Sharepot won’t be determined until the promotion period is over. The current promotion, which the casino is calling Monster Million Trop Points Giveaway, is identical in structure to the casino’s Sharepot Giveaways during the weeks of June 27 and July 24.
Features About This Promotion That Could Be Better
One problem with this promotion is that players have no idea ahead of time not only what they have a chance to win personally, but what the total prize pool is. So from that standpoint the question as to whether the Monster Million Trop Points Giveaway is worth your time is really unanswerable. In the end, you could be looking at such a tiny amount of Bonus Money, you will wonder why you bothered. Or, but only if you play enough to earn a lot of tickets, the bonus will be large enough to give you a realistic shot of winning more than just small change.
Then there is the second problem that only your winnings are withdrawable, not the bonus itself. This stipulation means that the bonus must be larger than it would need to be otherwise to have any monetary value worth mentioning. With withdrawable bonuses, you can either take your initial winnings and run or try to parlay your bonus and winnings into a bigger win. Here you can still try to parlay your winnings, but it might be using less, rather than more, money than you had before since the bonus will be taken away!
Great Features About This Promotion
The Amount You Wager is Up to You
This is a type of promotion that will appeal to smaller and bigger players alike. Because the number of Sharepot Tickets any one player can earn is capped at five per day, the door is open for more players to earn the maximum number of entries, not just high rollers. In addition, no deposit is required at any time. As long as you have enough money in your account to play, you can keep going.
Players who can afford to wager more than $250 per day should do so. The number of tickets you earn will still be capped at five per day, but the additional wagers will help make the Sharepot bigger. Then, because your percentage of the Sharepot will be that of a bigger number, you wind up with more Trop Points and more Bonus Money!
On the other hand, betting more than you can afford is a bad idea for anyone. $50 is the absolute minimum you can bet per day to earn a Sharepot Ticket, but beyond that, you should only wager what you can comfortably afford and no more than that. Keep in mind that wagers from one day cannot be carried over to the next day.
Completely Risk Free Bonus
The best feature of this promotion is that once you get your bonus, it is completely risk free!
The Bottom Line
As long as you plan to play on TropicanaCasino.com this week anyway, you should take advantage of this promotion. If you can wager more than the minimum, your bonus will be bigger, but as long as you can wager at least $50 at least one day, you are guaranteed to receive something. When all is said and done, even if your reward is very small, you will have had fun chasing it.
