All throughout July, Caesars Casino in New Jersey has been celebrating the 50th birthday of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas through an array of worthwhile promotional events.
Well, it looks like the operator has saved the best for last.
Slot Play Giveaway is a two-part promotion that will ultimately see hundreds of online slot players divvy up a $50,000 prize pool. Appropriately, that’s $1,000 for every year Caesars Palace has held center stage on the Las Vegas Strip.
Given the high monetary cap and multiple paths to victory, a strong case can be made that this offer is the single best NJ online casino promotion of what has already been a pretty spectacular summer.
To Rome we go (metaphorically speaking of course).
Opt-in and win
Any real-money player who opts in using the Caesars promotional code SUMMER50K between July 28 and August 5 will receive two welcome gifts:
- A $1 bonus, immediately credited to player accounts.
- One bonus play drawing entry
While the $1 bonus is a nice touch, it’s the bonus play entry that will grab players’ attention.
On August 10, Caesars Casino will randomly select 500 winners, each of who will receive $20 in bonus slot play. Casual gamblers will be pleased to know that there is no other way to earn entries, meaning they’ll be on a level playing field as the site’s most dedicated patrons.
All bonus dollars won, including the $1 bonus, are subject to a 5x wagering requirement on slot games only. Players have 14 days from the time the bonus hits their accounts to fulfill this requirement.
Play and win bigger
While the bonus buck and sweepstakes entry would constitute a strong promotion on their own, it’s the second part of the $50,000 Slot Play Giveaway that really pushes this offer over the top.
That’s because Caesars Casino is awarding its slot players with a combined $40,000 in bonus slot play. But whereas the first half of the promotion rewards casual and more enthusiastic gamblers equally, this segment is targeted more toward the site’s high rollers.
From July 28 – August 5, players that opt-in (using the same SUMMER50K promotional code) will have their play tracked by the site. At the end of the promotional period, the top 180 Online Tier Credit earners will win prizes based on the following prize matrix:
- 1st – 5th place: $1,000 bonus slot play
- 6th – 30th place: $500 bonus
- 31st – 80th – $250 bonus
- 81st – 180th – $100 bonus
Players earn one Online Tier Credit for every $10 wagered on slots. Credits earned at video poker and table games will not contribute to a player’s ranking.
It’s worth noting that NJ online casinos rarely offer prizes on this scale, especially at the lower rankings.
What’s more, is that any Online Tier Credits (and Rewards Credits) earned during the promotional period can be transferred to a player’s Total Rewards account. Thus, while players are grinding out slots in hopes of winning a big bonus, they’ll also be improving their status and liquidity at Caesars’ brick and mortar locations throughout the US.
And although this offer is clearly aimed at hardcore players, the NJ market is small enough that even gambling hobbyists should be able to sneak their way to one of the “smaller” $100 or $250 prizes.
Now for the fine print:
- Bonus dollars won must be wagered 5x on slots before they can be withdrawn
- Players have two weeks to fulfill the requirements
All in all, that’s not so bad, especially the rather low wagering requirement.
In order to help players maximize their earnings, we hand-selected a few slots that offer fair returns to the player:
- Twin Spin: High return, but also high volatility
- Monopoly Big Event: Slightly lower return, but only medium volatility
- Starmania: This is our best bet — very high return to player, and low variance
