Say Hello To Alexa With Virgin Casino’s Latest Giveaway

Written By Daniel Smyth on February 22, 2018

This week there’s a tech twist to the New Jersey online casino promo scene thanks to Virgin Casino.

As they often do, the bonus gods at Virgin online casino have put together a deal that’s worth more than money. Now, don’t get us wrong, there’s nothing wrong with banking some bonus cash.

However, with wagering conditions and weighting contributions to consider, prizes have a certain appeal. This week you can claim one such prize when you wager at least $50 before 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 25.

Get Amazon’s latest gadget?

If we’ve managed to hold your attention up until this point, you’re probably keen to know more. Well, with this week’s Virgin Casino promo, you could win one of five Amazon Echo Show devices.

Essentially Amazon Echo 2.0, this device doesn’t just talk to you, it shows you all manner of things. From images and animations to video calls, this clever piece of tech brings Amazon’s Alexa to life like never before.

With the new home assistant currently causing a storm among tech enthusiasts, Virgin’s team has rounded up five devices for five lucky winners.

Play your way to an Amazon Echo Show

To be in with a chance of receiving your very own Amazon Echo Show, you need to follow these very simple steps:

  • Create an account at VirginCasino.com if you don’t already have one.
  • Make a deposit so you’ve got some funds to play with (if you already have an active balance you can skip this step).
  • Wager at least $50 in a single day on the following games: 90 Ball Bingo, Slots, Table Games, Video Poker or Keno.

Anyone that bets at least $50 during a single session will gain one entry into the Amazon Echo Show prize draw. For a better chance of taking home one of these five-star prizes, players can earn up to five entries per day. In practice, that means you can receive additional tickets for every $50 you stake up to $250.

Other that those simple rules, it’s important to note that bets aren’t carried over to the following day. So, if you only wagered $49 on Thursday, you would be $1 short and have to start again from zero on Friday.

Is this deal +EV for me?

The reason we’re hot on this promo is because all the work is done up front.

When you scroll through the top-rated New Jersey casinos, they all offer some fantastic deals. For example, MoheganSun.com is currently giving you the chance to claim up to $2,000 in cashback. Based on your total net loss between Feb. 20 and Feb. 25, the promo allows you to receive 10 percent back in the form of a cash bonus when you enter the code WINTER.

As impressive as this is (we actually suggest checking it out), there are some caveats. Firstly, only your play on slots counts towards the cashback calculation. In contrast, Virgin’s latest promo allows you to earn credit for every game you play.

Secondly, the cashback you receive at Mohegan Sun can only be used on MoheganSun.com. If you win an Amazon Echo Show from Virgin Casino, the gift has some real-world value. Moreover, you don’t have to bet ‘x’ amount before the promo team mails you the prize.

This, for us, is the reason this deal is a winner. Wagering requirements often make it difficult for casual players to get maximum value. Indeed, having to work hard just to be in the running for a reward only to then be told you’ve got to work just as hard to actually unlock it is frustrating. Aside from taxing your bankroll, it’s potentially disheartening.

You’ll get none of that with Virgin’s Echo giveaway and, because of that, we think you should dive into the action today.
