An very interesting promotion has launched in the last week, dubbed the World of Wonders. Unlike usual promotional events that are featured at a single online casino or at most partnered sites, this offer spans multiple sites in multiple markets, and is tied together by the software provider, NetEnt.
A truly wondrous reward
NetEnt has chosen to demonstrate its global dominance in casino game software by running this promotion as a massive raffle for a world-spanning four-week trip. The sole grand prize winner and a guest will receive luxury travel accommodations and private tours of the New Seven Wonders of the World:
- The Colosseum in Rome, Italy
- The Ruins of Petra in Raqmu, Jordan
- The Taj Mahal in Agra, India
- The Great Wall of China
- The City of Chichen Itza in Yucatán, Mexico
- The Citadel of Machu Picchu in Cuzco, Peru
- The Statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The value of this trip is estimated at ~$60,000.
To participate, players must simply opt into the promotion at any eligible site. An entry to the raffle is earned for every €200 (~$240) wagered on any NetEnt game. As NetEnt is one of the most prolific software companies for online casinos there will be numerous options at every participating site, such as the extremely popular progressive jackpot slot Divine Fortune.
It is very unusual for a promotion to be offered by the software provider rather than the casino operators themselves, but likely a very effective way for NetEnt to draw attention to its successful library of games.
World wide competition
NetEnt has arranged for the raffle to be available via its games on as many sites as possible, meaning players are competing for the prize not just against other contestants in New Jersey but in international markets. However one winner will be chosen at random, and even if more entries means better chances the prize still could go to any eligible player anywhere.
Among New Jersey’s regulated online casinos, the World of Wonders is currently offered at:
While there is only one grand prize, individual casinos appear free to add additional value to the promotion, as Golden Nugget is also running a leaderboard tied to the offer. The seven players who earned the greatest number of entries will also receive a bonus money prize of $1,777 for the top rank and $777 for the other six. Golden Nugget players will also benefit from their activity counting toward their monthly race promotion, and the related weekly missions that reward extra race points for slot wagers on certain dates.
That said, fans of SugarHouse will certain also enjoy the additional iRush points applicable to its generous rewards program.
Of note, at time of writing the Divine Fortune jackpot is currently approaching $100,000 at Golden Nugget, and is in the low $50,000 range at the other three casinos.
World of Wonders entries began on April 25th and will continue until May 6th, with the raffle drawing on May 8th.
