At Tropicana Casino In New Jersey, Players Have 201 Reasons To Celebrate Tax Day

Expires in

Tax season is finally over, and to celebrate, Tropicana Casino has rolled out a sweepstakes promotion that will see 201 lucky winners divvy up a $8,500 prize pool. The grand prize is a trip to the Cayman Islands. Others will win up to $500 in bonus money.

Finishing up your tax returns can be one of the most welcome reliefs of the calendar year.

Now that you’ve filed (you did file right?), you’ll probably find yourself with a little more free time on your hands.

So why not spend those extra minutes relaxing at Tropicana Casino, where this week, the NJ online casino is offering one of its most lucrative sweepstakes promotions to date.

$7,000 in bonus money and a trip to the Cayman Islands sound good to you? A piece of that can be yours, and qualifying will take less time than it does to say Internal Revenue Service.

Tax Day Pay Day at Tropicana Casino in New Jersey

Normally, sweepstakes promotions at Tropicana Casino offer prize pools in the $5,000 – $7,000 range, but Tax Day Pay Day ups the ante with a $8,500 prize fund.

Qualifying for this extended offer is a cinch. From now until April 23, players will earn one entry for every $50 wagered, capped at five entries per day.

There are absolutely no game restrictions associated with this offer, meaning that if you want to earn your entries playing blackjack or high return video poker games, you can.

On Monday, April 24, all entries will be gathered, and Tropicana Casino will randomly select 201 names, each of whom will win a prize ranging in value from a $10 bonus all the way up to a trip to the Cayman Islands, valued at $1,500.

Here’s a full breakdown:

  • 1st place: Trip to Cayman Islands
  • 2nd place: $500 bonus money
  • 3th – 6th place: $250 bonus
  • 7th – 11th: $100 bonus
  • 12th -31st: $75 bonus
  • 32nd – 51st: $50 bonus
  • 52nd – 101st: $30 bonus
  • 102nd – 201st: $10 bonus

As far as the bonus money, it must be played online, and is not redeemable for cash. However, the wagering requirements are exceedingly low (1x on any casino game), and any winnings from bonus bets can be immediately withdrawn for cash.

The bonus cash will expire after 30 days.

Cayman Island trip details

Tropicana Casino does not reveal many details regarding the Cayman Island trip on its promotional page, so we reached out to customer service.

We found out the following:

  • The package include airfare and hotel stays for two, in so long as the price stays below $1,500.
  • Any remaining money can be used however the winner likes.

From this, it looks like the grand prize winner will have a great deal of flexibility in planning the trip.

Is this promotion worth the time?

We’ll say this much, Tax Day Pay Day is far more enjoyable than filing your taxes. But in all seriousness, this is among the best offers Tropicana Casino has┬árolled out in 2017.

The promotion pays out 201 winners, 51 of which will win a $50 bonus or greater. Given the size of the NJ online casino market, players are going to stand a reasonable chance of scoring a nice prize.

Furthermore, the entry cap of five per day makes it so casual players stand just as good a chance of winning as high rollers. We don’t see this leveling of the playing field too often in the industry.

If there’s one minor drawback, it’s that the bonus funds are not redeemable for cash. However, this detriment is mostly offset by the low 1x wagering requirement.

Think of the bonus like a freeroll — if you win on bonus bets you keep the money. If you lose, oh well, you weren’t wagering with your own funds anyhow.
