Fall Getaway and Tropicana Bonus Giveaway
Once again, TropicanaCasino.com is holding a drawing with prizes any player would love to win. This time the top prize up for grabs is a fall getaway to the Tropicana in Atlantic City, including a two night stay for the winner and a guest plus $200 in slot play plus a $200 restaurant credit. But even if you’re not one of the five lucky winners of that prize, you could still be a winner in next week’s drawing. 89 players will share 5,000 in Bonus Money!
When the TropicanaCasino.com Fall Getaway and Bonus Giveaway Promotion is Taking Place and Who is Eligible
The period for entering into the drawing started Monday, November 13 and continues all week until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, November 19.
In order to participate, you must be a registered TropicanaCasino.com player and be able to play online in New Jersey. While you do not have to live in New Jersey, residents of New York, Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico are excluded.
How to Participate in the TropicanaCasino.com Fall Getaway and Bonus Giveaway Promotion
While no deposit is necessary, since the number of entries you can get is based on play, you need a sufficient amount of money in your account to make your wagers. For every $50 wagered on any game on a single calendar day during the promotional period, you earn one entry into the drawing, with a cap of five entries per day (if you wager $250 or more). Each day is counted separately, and you cannot carry over wagers from one day to the next.
In other words, if you started playing on Monday and were to wager $250 or more all 7 days of the promotion, you would earn a total of 35 entries, which is the maximum possible. If you start your playing today (the third day of the promotion) and wager $250 each day, you would earn 25 entries.
Wager What You Can Afford
If you can afford to wager enough to earn the maximum number of entries, great, but if not, don’t worry about it. If you don’t have time to play every day or if $250 in daily wagers all week long is more than you can handle, you still have a very good chance of having your name picked for a prize.
Besides being a random drawing where anything can happen, a total of 94 names are being drawn. Therefore, more likely than not, some players with the maximum number of entries won’t win a prize and some players with far less than the maximum number of entries will win. Also, capping the total qualifying wagering at $250 per day helps level the playing field so that players who typically wager much more than that won’t dominate the entries and other participants will have a realistic chance to win, too.
Distribution of Prizes
On Monday, November 20 a random drawing will take place to determine the 94 prizewinners. The following table shows the distribution of prizes.
|# of Prizes||Prize|
|5||Two night stay at Tropicana Atlantic City, $200 slot credit and $200 restaurant credit|
|4||$250 Bonus Money|
|5||$200 Bonus Money|
|10||$100 Bonus Money|
|20||$50 Bonus Money|
|50||$20 Bonus Money|
Redemption of Prizes
All winners will be notified via email no later than three business days of the drawing, after which they will have 14 calendar days to redeem their prize in accordance with the instructions given. All prizes are non-exchangeable and non-transferable.
Fall Getaway Winners
Winners of the fall getaway must book their trip no later than January 1, 2018. Reservation dates are subject to availability, and certain dates and holiday weekends might be excluded. Winners of this prize are also required to sign up for the Tropicana Advantage Club Program if they are not already members.
Bonus Money Winners
All remaining prizes will be in the form of Bonus Money credited to the player’s account. The amount can range from $20 bonus dollars all the way up to $250 bonus dollars.
All Bonus Money prizes are subject to the same wagering requirements as other prizes of this type at Tropicana Online Casino. Prior to being allowed to withdraw any winnings from the bonus, the bonus must be wagered 1x. Any game is fine, and you have up to 30 days to complete the wagering. However, as soon as this tiny wager of 1x the bonus is completed, the bonus is removed from the player’s account!
In other words, you are not given the option to wager the bonus more than once. In addition, you will be able to keep any winnings from this wagering, but not the bonus itself. All bonuses at sister casino VirginCasino.com work the same way.
Is the Fall Getaway Promotion and Bonus Money Giveaway at TropicanaCasino.com Worth Your Time?
If you are a TropicanaCasino.com player and plan to play there this week, this promotion is definitely worth your time. With only five players winning the top prize of a Fall Getaway, being one of them is a longshot. But you never know. You could be one those lucky winners, and since the prize also includes $200 in free slot play and a $200 dining credit, it is clearly worth playing for.
On the other hand, the odds are very good that you will win Bonus Money. While obviously, these prizes would be much better if you could keep the bonus and not just the winnings, the good news is that the bonuses are not so tiny that winning anything appreciable with them is virtually impossible.
Furthermore, because you only have to wager the bonus once, even if you don’t win with it, you won’t be losing any of your own money. You are getting a free ride to wager the casino’s money to try to turn the bonus into a win.
On the other hand, where you are risking your own money is with your earlier play to earn entries into the drawing. That is precisely why you should keep your play at your usual level and not bet more than you can afford.
Extra Bonus–See the Tropicana Christmas Tree Lighting and Free Holiday Light and Sound Show
If you can make it to the Tropicana Atlantic City this Friday, November 17, it will be worth the trip, as a real treat awaits you. At 1 p.m. you can watch the official lighting of the spectacular 35 foot Christmas Tree and also enjoy a free light and sound show with your favorite songs of the season and partake in free refreshments. The light and sound show will be repeated daily every hour on the hour from 12 noon to 10 p.m. through January 2, 2018.
