It’s a new year and, according to Virgin Online Casino, that’s reason enough to “treat yo-self.”
As is often the case, January is a time to reinvent yourself, start new ventures and generally add value to your life. With this in mind, Virgin Casino’s New Year’s resolution is simple: To help you.
“At Virgin Casino, we’re all about you. We want you to win, and we want to elevate your fun however we can. Cue our Resolutions — a series of promotions throughout the month of January to welcome in 2019. Our main resolution is to help you achieve your resolutions — so here’s what we’ve got …”
Pamper yourself with a $200 Macy’s gift card
To this end, you can get your hands on one of five Macy’s gift cards worth $200 each this week.
Available through a random prize draw, this giveaway is open to anyone who can wager $50 in a single day before 11:59 pm EST on Jan. 21. Unsurprisingly, you have to spend the $50 inside Virgin Casino.
However, the way in which you choose to spend it is up to you. If you’re a fan of slots, take a spin on the likes of Candy Bars and Blood Suckers II. If table games are your thing, there’s blackjack, roulette, baccarat and more to keep you busy.
Finally, for bingo bods, you can enjoy a selection of 90 ball games throughout the day. Put simply, there are hundreds of ways to meet the $50 wagering target inside Virgin Casino.
What’s great about this giveaway is that you can earn multiple tickets each day. Depending on how active you are and the size of your bankroll, it’s possible to collect a maximum of five tickets per day. Of course, you have to surpass the $50 target each time you want a new ticket.
So, if you’re shooting for the daily limit, you’ll need to stake $250 to get all five tickets.
It’s all about the amount you stake at Virgin
Fortunately, as we always say, wagering $50 isn’t the same as losing $50. In fact, if it were, we wouldn’t recommend this promotion because the risk wouldn’t be worth the reward.
In practice, wagering simply means the sum of all your bets. Your wins and losses don’t count against your total.
For example, with a bankroll of $100, you could stake 20 cents per spin on Candy Bars and play for 20 minutes. Within that time, you roll through 300 spins, meaning you’ve spent $60.
At the end of the 20-minute session, a few winning combinations have allowed you to scoop a $15 profit. Based on the size of your bet and the number of spins you made, you’ll have bet $60, won $75 ($60 + $15) and walked away with $115 (starting stake + your profit). Aside from being a nice return on your investment, the above scenario would earn you a prize draw ticket.
Why? Well, even though you made a profit, you still surpassed the $50 wagering target. So there isn’t a penalty for winning when it comes to wagering requirements. Conversely, you don’t get extra credit for losing money.
Overall, you only need to focus on how much you’ve spent on a game, irrespective of your profits/losses.
Another thing to note from the above scenario is that slots are the best way to earn tickets. Although slot bets aren’t valued any differently to those placed on table games, video poker or bingo, you can stake more per hour.
Don’t get us wrong; all games at NJ gambling websites are fast. In fact, video poker isn’t too far away from slots concerning speed. However, if you want the most bang for your buck in the shortest time possible, spinning is the way to go.
Play, win and wait for your gift card to arrive
Away from the nuances of this offer, the final selling point is the lack of post-win wagering requirements. As Virgin Casino NJ has done for the last few months, the prizes you win are yours to keep without any strings attached.
Because you’ll win a Macy’s gift card and not bonus cash, there’s no reason for the terms and conditions to say, “You must wager XX before you can release your reward.”
Therefore, if you’re one of the five players plucked from the proverbial hat, all you have to do is sit back and wait for the $200 gift card to arrive in the mail.
Other than that, there’s not much else you need to know. As long as you can wager at least $50 in a single day before 11:59 p.m. EST on Jan. 21, you’ll be in with a chance to “treat yo-self” for the new year.
