October 26, 2018

Don’t think for one minute that Halloween is for kids only. Not if you can get to Atlantic City where every casino in town is all geared up to give you and your companions a howling good time. But Tropicana is one place you can always count on year after year to go the extra mile to make Halloween and the days leading up to it spooktacular.

However, this year lucky you can start celebrating extra early. In fact, since Halloween falls midweek, this Saturday night is when all the big parties take place instead.

Otherwise, is Halloweek at the Trop going to be any different or less over the top than in previous years? Check it out for yourself. Between spooky looking food and drink specials galore and the Jamie Lee Curtis film “Halloween” playing at the IMAX Theater all week long, the answer is obvious. Not a ghost of a chance!

Stop at the William Hill Sportsbook

As you can see, if celebrating Halloween is your thing, the Tropicana Atlantic City offers something for everyone. But if you’re a sports fan, too, here’s the news you’ve been waiting for. The Tropicana had been announcing for a long time that a sportsbook was in the works, but the opening date was mystery. Well, that day is here. The William Hill Sportsbook made its debut in the Tropicana North Tower on Thursday, Oct. 25.

I will be visiting the new sportsbook next week to see how it compares with the William Hill Sportsbook at Ocean Resort Casino and other Atlantic City sportsbooks. So look for my detailed review right here on NJ Gambling Websites soon. Meanwhile, check out Atlantic City’s newest sportsbook for yourself.

It’s No Trick, Caesars Casino Is Treating Players To A Week Of Bonuses

October 26, 2018
Trick or Treat pumpkins

Anyone who says that Halloween is for kids only doesn’t know what he or she is talking about. But don’t just take my word for it. If you’re a Caesars Online Casino player, starting today, Fri., Oct. 26 and for six days straight, prove all those naysayers wrong and get your greedy hands on every sweet treat you have coming to you.

It’s Caesars Halloweek of Treats, where the special treats being offered are for adults only. No candy, no booze, but instead, something you’re bound to like even more–daily bonuses in your online account!

So let the kids have their day of fun on Halloween. It’s their one day to dress up in crazy costumes and go trick or treat. They deserve it.

But for you, the fun and celebration, instead of being limited to one day only, continues for nearly a week. No need to worry about a possible hangover from polishing off one too many or packing on the pounds from gobs of candy. Your calorie-free Halloweek of Treats starting Friday, Oct. 26 continues every day thereafter through Wednesday, Oct. 31.

Log in each day to claim your bonus

Even if you don’t ordinarily play every day, this is one week when, for all CaesarsCasino.com players, it pays to log in daily. That way you won’t miss a single one of the daily bonuses that Caesars Online Casino is offering.

Why settle for just celebrating Halloween this October when on CaesarsCasino.com you can celebrate HalloWIN?

How to earn Caesars Halloweek of Treats bonuses

Caesars Halloweek of Treats isn’t for everyone. You do need to be a registered Caesars Casino player. Assuming you are, if you would like to participate and receive your daily bonuses, here’s what you need to do:

  • Log into your CaesarsCasino.com account every day during the Oct. 26-Oct. 31 promotion.
  • Go to the My Bonuses tab.
  • Claim the new offer for that day.

What happens next?

What makes these offers for daily bonuses even more fun is that Caesars is keeping them all a mystery. The casino is divulging no details ahead of time as to what each day’s offer might be or what additional conditions might apply before the bonus becomes withdrawable. So the only way to find out is to log into your account each day and decide then if you like the offer enough to accept it.

Read the terms and conditions carefully

I can tell you this much, however. As generous as Caesars may be offering daily bonuses for six days in succession, it is not so generous that it is going to give away all these goodies free and clear, expecting nothing from you in return.

Deposit match bonuses

Some of the offers may be for a deposit match. If that is the case, the casino will specify the minimum deposit to qualify for a bonus, the percentage of the deposit match you will receive as a bonus, and the cap on the bonus.

For example, you may be offered a 50 percent deposit match bonus up to $50 for which the minimum deposit is $25. That means in order to receive the maximum possible bonus of $50, you would need to deposit $100.

However, there is no point to depositing more than $100 since the bonus would still be capped at $50. If you only deposit the $25 minimum, you would still get a bonus, but only $12.50. If you deposit less than $25, you won’t get a bonus.

Wagering requirements

Regardless of whether a deposit is required or not, because your reward is in the form of bonus money added to your account rather than cash, you won’t be able to withdraw either the bonus or any associated winnings until you meet the casino’s wagering requirements.

Caesars Online Casino tends to be very consistent with its wagering requirements for clearing bonuses. Nonetheless, you should read all the fine print in order to make certain. Contact customer support ASAP if anything isn’t crystal clear. The last thing you want to have happen is to have a bonus taken away from you due to a misunderstanding.

For deposit-based bonuses, Caesars Casino, unlike most other NJ gambling websites, typically includes not just the bonus in the wagering requirements, but the bonus and deposit combined. The extent to which this unfavorable rule increases the amount of wagering necessary depends on the percentage of the deposit match.

Most likely, you will have up to seven days to clear each bonus. Since these offers follow on consecutive days, on any given day, you may still be working on clearing one or more previous days’ bonuses. Don’t let that deter you from accepting the next day’s bonus, too. But keep in mind that only one bonus can be cleared at a time.

How good is the Caesars Halloweek of Treats?

That’s a tough question to answer, not knowing any of the individual offers ahead of time. Most likely some of the daily offers will be better than others. But even if some are only so-so, you get the cumulative positive effect of receiving one bonus on top of another.

In any case, there is nothing to lose by logging in every day during the six days long promotion to see what your offer is. If it’s not to your liking, you are under no obligation to accept it. Each day’s offer is separate and not contingent in any way on having accepted the previous day’s offer.

So, by all means, go ahead and see what Caesars Halloweek of Treats has in store for you. By the time Oct. 31 rolls around, with a little luck, it might not be just Halloween you’re celebrating but HalloWIN!
