This St. Patrick’s Day weekend, gamblers won’t have to rely on lucky charms to walk away winners.
That’s because no less than a half-dozen NJ online casinos are giving away pots of bonus gold to players who frequent their sites.
So, put down that four-leaf clover, adorn your favorite green apparel, and follow the rainbow to our preferred promotional picks.
Golden Nugget Casino: St. Patrick’s Weekend
Golden Nugget Casino has two rewards up for grabs this weekend. From March 17 – 19, players that select St. Patrick’s Weekend from their available bonuses and make a qualifying deposit of $20 or more will be eligible to receive 100 percent additional loyalty points plus free play.
The loyalty point multiplier will be gifted to all players that wager at least $1,000 this weekend, with the free play amount dependent on how much action players give the site, as follows:
- Wager between $1,000 – $2,499 : $5 free play
- Play between $2,500 – $4,999: $10 free play
- Gamble between $5,000 – $9,999: $15 free play
- Wager over $10,000: $20 free play
All free play is subject to just a 1x wagering requirement on slots, and 5x on other games, and will be credited to player accounts no later than Monday, March 20.
As far as the additional Golden Points, they’re capped at 500 per account. Golden Points can be redeemed at a rate of $1 per 100 points, and players can accumulate them by playing games, placing at least one real-money wager per day, and by making qualifying daily deposits of at least $50.
What’s nice about this offer is that it synergizes with Golden Nugget’s monthlong leaderboard promotion, March: Games Madness, in that players hoping to rise to the top of the charts are going to have to put in mass volume.
St. Patrick’s Weekend incentivizes them to do so, by padding the bankrolls of players who hit the virtual slots and table games hard this weekend with a little extra green.
Tropicana Casino: Pot O’ Gold
Tropicana Casino isn’t exactly big on match bonuses, so when it offers one, players are advised to take advantage.
Pot O’ Gold awards players that make a net deposit of at least $20 and wager through that deposit at least one time on any casino game with a 10 percent deposit match, capped at $50.
The time frame to take part in this offer is March 17 – 19.
In order to fully capitalize upon this offer, players will want to make deposits totaling $500 this weekend, and to leave that money in their accounts until Monday, March 20. That’s because Tropicana won’t tabulate player deposits and award payouts until that date.
The downside to this offer is that the bonus amounts are not redeemable for cash. However, they are only subject to a low 1x wagering requirement on any game, including high return games such as blackjack and video poker.
Not only that, any winnings procured from bonus bet wagers are available for cash withdrawals. Think of it like a freeroll, where the worst that can happen when wagering bonus funds is that players break even. Not a bad proposition.
Play SugarHouse: St. Patrick’s Day – Scratch Card
Ok, so in order to max out this promotion from Play SugarHouse, players may need to break out their four-leaf clovers. But that’s not to say that even the saddest leprechaun won’t cash in.
On March 17 only, players that make a qualifying deposit of $25 or more using the bonus code LUCKY17 will receive a Scratch Card.
The card will reveal bonus prizes ranging from $5 all the way up to $150, and whatever amount players win will be instantly credited to their bonus bank. At that point, players can either opt to backpocket the bonus for a later date, or use it immediately.
Like all Play SugarHouse bonuses, the bonus funds from Scratch Card only have a 1x playthrough requirement on slots and video poker games, after which they are transferred to a player’s cash wallet.
What this means is that, at minimum, players will receive 20 percent cashback on a $25 deposit. And those who “scratch” their cards right could see a staggering 600 percent return on their small investment.
