Cool Down or Warm Up With Tropicana And Virgin Casino Freebies

Posted By Daniel Smyth on December 12, 2017

[toc]Hey, listen up, Tropicana Casino has a weekly deal worth $10,000 just for you. OK, so it’s technically open to anyone, but you ante up and get some cash back if you’re quick. However, much like a snowflake in the sunlight, this offer won’t be around for long.

In practice, the Snowflake Sharepot promo kicked off on Dec. 11 and will officially close at 1:59pm ET on Dec. 14, 2017. Fortunately, your task is a simple one this week: wager $50 on 90 Ball Bingo, slots, or any other games (table games, video poker, and Keno) and you’ll earn a single sharepot ticket.

Once you’ve earned at least one ticket, you’ll be guaranteed a share of the $10,000 prize pool.

Sharing is caring at Tropicana Casino this week

Now, just in case you don’t know how Tropicana Casino’s sharepot promotions work, here’s the lowdown:

Step 1: Each player has to place a certain volume/value of bets to earn a single a sharepot ticket.

Step 2: At the end of the promotion, the total number of sharepot tickets collected will be added up.

Step 3: The number of tickets you have is then divided by the amount calculated in Step 2.

Step 4: Based on your share of the sharepot, you’ll receive a payout in bonus cash.

An example of how much you can earn

To give the above steps some context, let’s look at the Snowflake Sharepot promo:

  • In this week’s promo, you have to wager $50 to earn a single ticket.
  • As an example, 100 tickets in total are collected during the playing period.
  • In your case, you managed to scoop five tickets before the Dec. 14 deadline.
  • Comparing your efforts to the rest of Tropicana Casino community means you’ll receive a 5 percent share of the prizepool (i.e. 5 tickets / 100 tickets = 0.05 i.e. 5%).
  • This week, there is $10,000 in bonus cash up for grabs, which means you’ll bank $500 (10,000 X 0.05 = 500) for your efforts.

For those of you that have never played at Tropicana Casino NJ before, all bonuses and bonus dollars have to be wagered once within 30 days before you can request a withdrawal. In the above example, you’d have to wager $500 in order to release any money you’d won using your free credits.

Basically, if you can wager $50, earn yourself a slice of the $10,000 sharepot, and stay active after you’ve won, you’ll get a timely festive treat courtesy of Tropicana Casino this week.

Stoke the fire and recoup your losses at Virgin Casino

While things are cooling down over at Tropicana Casino, its sister site is turning up the heat with some fireside fun. Based on a similar concept at the promo above, Virgin Casino is giving you the chance to receive up to $75 in bonus cash this week.

Running from Dece. 11 until 11:59pm ET on Dec. 14, 2017, this deal is all about playing more to get more. However, unlike Tropicana’s deal that seems to focus on the winners of this world, Virgin is pitching its promo at those on a downswing. To put it another way, if you’re out of luck in the lead-up to Christmas, you can win when you lose at Virgin Casino.

Each day that you wager $50 during the promo period, you’ll get a chance receive a percentage of your losses back:

  • Wager $50-a-day for two consecutive days and receive a 5% rebate up to $20 in Bonus Money
  • Wager $50-a-day for three consecutive days and receive a 10% rebate up to $50 in Bonus Money
  • Wager $50-a-day for four consecutive days and receive a 15% rebate up to $75 in Bonus Money

How Virgin calculates your losses

In this game, your net losses are calculated by taking your total wagers and substracting your total wins during the promotional period. If you’re a net loser and meet the qualification standards, you’ll receive a bonus payment worth up to $75.

Any bonus money you receive is non-cashable. However, anything you win using your gratis cash can be withdrawn once you’ve wagered an amount equal to your bonus.

That, in a nutshell, is the pick of New Jersey’s online casino bonuses this week. If you feel like a winner, Tropicana has the perfect deal. If, on the other hand, you feel a little down on your luck, Virgin Casino is there with the timely pick-me-up. Of course, if you’re like us and sit somewhere in between the two extremes, we’d suggest you go for both bonuses!
