Summer may soon be entering its death throes, but that hasn’t stopped NJ online casinos from turning up the heat on their promotions.
So before you trade in your beach towels for football jerseys, take a peek at what the very best sites have on display.
Featured: Draw well and win at Tropicana Casino
Tropicana Casino is notorious for its sweepstakes promotions, but this one may just take the cake.
From August 21 through August 28 players that wager just $50 on any casino game will earn one entry into a prize draw, with a total guaranteed prize pool of $6,000. Up to five entries can be earned per day of the event, for a maximum possible total of 40 entries.
Amazon.com junkies will be pleased to know that top prize winners will grab a $100 gift card to use as they like on the site. Full prize matrix as follows:
- 1st – 10th place: $100 Amazon Gift Card
- 11th – 15th place: $250 bonus money for use exclusively at Tropicana Casino
- 16th – 20th place: $200 bonus money
- 21st – 30th: $100 bonus
- 31st – 50th: $50 bonus
- 51st – 100th: $20 bonus
What’s cool (or hot, depending upon your perspective) about Trop’s Luck of the Draw promo is that it awards a total of 100 patrons. While that may not sound like a ton, it’s a sizeable percentage of everyday players in the NJ online casino market.
Suffice it to say, in a one state market, players chances of striking sweepstakes gold are just that much better. So always be on the lookout for prize draws.
As for the bonus funds, they are subject to just a 1x wagering requirement on any casino game. After the requirement is met, players are free to cash out any winnings immediately — no strings attached.
Just keep in mind that bonus funds must be wagered within 30 days of the payout date: August 29.
Win a free football pass at Resorts Casino
It’s never too early to start making NFL plans (well, maybe if you’re a Jets fan), and Resorts Casino has just the offer for players who want to see their favorite team on the cheap.
From August 21 – 27, players can spin, roll, and double down their way to two free tickets at either Lincoln Financial Stadium in Philadelphia, or MetLife Stadium in good old northern New Jersey.
Players can amp up their chances of winning by earning more Rewards Points, as they’ll earn one additional ticket per 10 points earned.
The promotional code for this event is FOOTBALL.
Mohegan Sun Casino: $5k is the way
Apparently, sweepstakes promos are the theme of the week, as Mohegan Sun Casino has also rolled one out. Compared to our other featured prize draws, with one pays out more players and offers the largest top prizes.
Qualifying for this offer is as easy as setting up a beach chair. From August 21 – 27, opt in using the promotional code PRIZE.
Then, simply earn 20 Elevate Points (EP) and you’ll win one entry into the site’s Bonus Week giveaway. As an added perk, every additional 20 Elevate Points accrued will see players secure another ticket.
Elevate Points, which can also be redeemed for straight up cash, are earned at the following rates:
- Online slots: 1 EP per $1 wagered
- Blackjack/Video Poker: 1 EP per $4 wagered
- Roulette: 1 EP per $8 wagered
As for the prizes, they run the gamut from the cool to the downright sizzling, with a top prize of $500 bonus dollars. All winners will pocket at least $10 bonus bucks.
The reason this promo doesn’t take our top spot is because the wagering requirements on bonus dollars tend a bit toward the higher side (although nothing insurmountable): 5x on slots, and 25x on all other games.
Golden Nugget Casino is living life in the fast lane
Don’t downshift just yet! There’s still time to cash in on Golden Nugget Casino‘s Life in the Fast Lane promotional extravaganza.
All this month, players that make a qualifying deposit of $20 or more, and earn loyalty points will qualify for this leaderboard promotion. The grand prize winner will be whisked away on a blazing exotic car driving experience, where they’ll be pitted behind the wheel of a Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo, and a Porsche 911 Turbo.
In addition, 99 other top point earners will divvy up a bonus prize pool of $16,000, for a total promotional value of $22,000.
If that weren’t already enough, participants will see their points applied to the site’s annual Golden Race, which will award a staggering $100,000 in bonus dollars, spread across 25 top earners, and five other randomly drawn players.
