Black Friday NJ Online Casino Bonuses
If you are shopping around for Black Friday bargains, don’t forget that some of the best promotions are not at the stores, but at the NJ online casinos. For starters, if you haven’t already accessed the best of this week’s offers that are still ongoing at CaesarsCasino.com, HarrahsCasino.com, TropicanaCasino.com, and VirginCasino.com, now is the time to do so. See my last four posts on this site for all the details.
Beware of the Black Friday Bummers
In addition, several casinos have brand new special offers just for today. Unfortunately, much the same way as some of the merchandise promoted in stores on Black Friday is shoddy, the same can be said about some of today’s online casino Black Friday deals. For example, from November 22 through November 26, TropicanaCasino.com has a promotion it calls “Thankswinning Weekend.” The offer is a 15% Playback Bonus on your net losses up to $75. If you do the math, you will see that in order to get the maximum bonus of $75 (out of which only the winnings are withdrawable), you first need to lose $500!
But the worst offer of the week has to be tonight’s late night (12 a.m.-3 a.m.) offer from BetfairCasino.com. It’s a 20% deposit match bonus up to $20 on your deposit of $25 or more. In other words, if you make a $100 deposit, you will receive a $20 bonus, but if you only deposit the $25 minimum, your bonus is $5. Based on that information alone, I initially found the offer barely passable.
Then I read the incredible wagering requirements: Slots: 10x bonus + deposit; Roulette: 50x bonus + deposit; Any Other Game: 100x bonus + deposit! Are they kidding? A player depositing $100 and receiving a bonus of $20 would have to wager $1,200 on slots, which count 100%. If instead, the player wants to clear the $20 bonus with blackjack, the wagering requirements zoom to $12,000! Even if you’re a night owl, this bonus is not worth staying up for. Save your money!
GoldenNuggetCasino.com has a Better Deal for Black Friday
Golden Nugget Online Casino had a special offer for yesterday only, not for a bonus, but for Triple Golden Points. Unfortunately, that great offer expired at midnight last night. But even if you were too busy to take advantage of it, don’t despair. The casino is back with another one day only special offer, and this time it’s a Black Friday Deposit Match Bonus.
Like the Betfair bonus, it’s small–only $20. But here’s the difference. It’s not a 20% match of your deposit, but a full 100% match of your deposit, and the wagering requirements are reasonable, too.
How to Get the Black Friday $20 Bonus at GoldenNuggetCasino.com
Anytime today, up to 11:59 p.m., players who deposit $20 or more into their GoldenNuggetCasino.com account will receive a $20 bonus. In order to participate, simply do the following:
- Log into your GoldenNuggetCasino.com account before 11:59 p.m. tonight.
- Go to “Available Bonuses” and claim this offer.
- Make a deposit of $20 or more.
Your $20 bonus, which is a full 100% match of your deposit if you only deposit $20, will be credited to your account immediately. This offer can only be claimed once, and only your first deposit counts.
Wagering Requirements for the $20 Black Friday Bonus at GoldenNuggetCasino.com
The bonus comes with the following wagering requirements
Slots: 5x bonus
All Other Games: 25x bonus
In other words, if you play slots, your total wagering requirement is only $100. However, if you play any other game, your total wagering requirement increases to $500. For the purpose of clearing the bonus, the player’s own deposited money is used first and then the bonus money. You have up to 7 days to complete the wagering. As soon as these wagers are completed, the bonus, your deposit, and any winnings therefrom will be available for withdrawal.
As any experienced Good Friday shopper knows, there are some great finds waiting to be snapped in stores this weekend, along with other not so great finds. Likewise, the NJ online casinos have their own special promotions for today and the rest of Thanksgiving Weekend, some of which are clearly better than others. Shop as wisely online as you do offline, grab the best deals quickly before they’re gone, and stay clear of those that don’t offer good value. That’s the way to finish way ahead of the game.
