On some weekends a special event offers a unifying theme for marketing promotions, whereas others supply just generic seasonal fare. Then there are times when multiple calendar entries combine, and the offers become all the more satisfying.
This week the coinciding of the beginning of April, the Easter holiday, and the end of March Madness basketball culminate in a wide range of weekend promotional offers for all kinds of players at every level of activity.
As with most weeks, Tropicana Casino sets the bar high with multiple activity promos. This weekend features two main offers:
The Egg-cellent Bonus will offer players with 15% bonus playback up to $50 whenever at least $50 has been wagered on a select group of slots:
- Tiki Island
- Tiki Island Mini
- Tiki Totems
- Secrets of the Phoenix
- Agatha Christie’s Mystery Wilds
- Queen of Winter Wins
- Queen of the Tree Folk
- Guardians of Fire & Ice
- Jin’s Jungle
- Sapphire Sorceress
- Zen Garden
- Steam Tower
Have a Ball celebrates the start of baseball season. From Monday March 26th to Monday April 2nd players will earn up to 5 sweepstakes entries a day for every $50 wagered on any game. Prizes include bonus money as well as vouchers for baseball tickets.
In the coming week, Tropicana will also be offering the April showers-themed Rainy Day Bonuses from Tuesday the 2nd to Thursday the 4th, in which activity and deposits can win bonus playback, deposit match, or a prize draw depending on the day. And on top of all of these, Tropicana’s Community Jackpot is still running, which can offer all online players prize money at any random time.
Honorable runner-up: Virgin
Tropicana’s sister site Virgin Casino has again followed suit, now offering simultaneous sweepstakes in the form of Virgin Adventures and Spring Cleaning. Both of these function the same as Have a Ball — $50 on any game per entry, up to 5 entries a day until April 2nd. The winner of Virgin Adventures will receive a trip to Charleston, South Carolina worth $2,000, while Spring Cleaning will award two award two players a $500 iRobot Roomba 890 Vacuum.
Virgin is also running a Bunny Bonus promotion, which offers small amounts of bonus playback for wagering at least $50 on consecutive days (increasing to a maximum of 20% playback) until Tuesday the 2nd. From Tuesday until Thursday the 4th the similar Triple Play offer will award playback up to 15%.
Hunting for Easter eggs
Harrah’s Online Casino has opted to focus on an Easter-themed promotion, the Easter Mystery Bonus. Players who make a deposit using the code BUNNY will win an instant prize of either $5, $20, or $250 in bonus play.
888poker and 888casino are also offering the Double Easter Treats bonus. This allows players to deposit with code EASTER20 for the casino or BUNNY20 for the poker room, unlocking an immediate 10% casino bonus or 5% poker bonus, up to maximum of $50. Additional play activity will unlock another 10% casino or 5% poker bonus, for a total maximum value of $100 per deposit.
The casino offer can be redeemed twice per day and the poker offer once per day until April 9th.
March’s final madnesses
Basketball is also a popular reason for a good promotion, as PlaySugarHouse is running the third and final leg of its Shootout Madness Tournaments. From March 29th to April 1st players will receive scratch cards for earning iRR Loyalty Points in a given day. Up to 10 Shootout Madness Scratch Cards and 10 Buzzer Beater Scratch Cards can be earned for reaching the maximum level of at least 600 rewards points that day. The scratch cards will yield bonus money and/or leaderboard points, with additional bonus money for the top leaderboard performers. As SugarHouse offers reward points fairly for consistent play this promotion offers a very even chance of reward for moderate players.
Caesars Casino is also running the final weekend of its March Mayhem 2018 from March 31st to April 2nd, in which every player is offered a random bonus upon login on each of the days in the offer period.
Finally PokerStars NJ is celebrating March Madness with Final Freerolls tournament. Until 6:00 PM on Saturday the 31st players can register for one of four freeroll tournaments named after the Final Four teams. After the championship game on April 3rd the tournaments will begin, with prize pools determined by the success of your chosen team (up to a $5,000 pool if you correctly picked the winner.)
April is fooling no one
Beyond the above offers Saturday is also the last day of March, marking the end of the current ongoing monthly promotions. Sunday will be the start of PokerStars’ and Borgata Poker’s next monthly leaderboard competitions and the next installment of Golden Nugget Casino’s next monthly race.
Borgata Casino’s March $15,000 Sweepstakes will also end on Saturday, with information on any April equivalent still forthcoming.
