St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone but not the opportunity to have your share of Irish luck rub off on you at NJ online casinos. As you probably already know, at 8 p.m., Monday, March 16, all nine Atlantic City casinos were required to temporarily close and must remain closed until further notice.
However, you can still play your favorite games online or on your mobile device to your heart’s content. Borgata Online Casino and BetMGM Online Casino are two of the NJ gambling websites that are going all out to keep you happily entertained with exciting weeklong special promotions.
BetMGM Promo Codes
Borgata and BetMGM St. Patrick’s Day Leaderboard
This promotion got underway at both Borgata Online Casino and BetMGM Casino on Monday, March 16 but continues until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, March 22. So you still have time to enter and “spin your way to the top of the leaderboard and claim a pot of cash.”
Monday, March 23 is payout day. All prizes are in the form of immediately withdrawable cash with no further wagering requirements. So this is an opportunity no Borgata or BetMGM online casino player should miss.
The top 100 players will win prizes ranging from $20 cash to $1,000 cash.
How the Borgata and BetMGM St. Patrick’s Day Leaderboard works
This promotion is open to all registered Borgata and BetMGM online casino players. If you wish to participate, here are the steps you need to follow.
- Log into your Borgata or BetMGM online casino account during the 3/16-3/22 promotion period as soon as possible if you have not already done so.
- Go to the Promotions tab and opt-in to the St. Patrick’s Day Leaderboard promotion.
- Start playing!
You will earn 2 leaderboard points for every $1 wagered on featured games (see below), 1 leaderboard point for every $1 wagered on other online slots, and 1 leaderboard point for every $5 wagered on table games.
Featured slot games
In keeping with this promotion’s St. Patrick’s Day theme, all of the featured slot games also have an Irish theme. The featured slots are as follows:
- Luck O’ the Jackpot
- Finn and the Swirly Spin
- Emerald Isle
- Irish Eyes
- Irish Eyes 2
Two of the above slots, Emerald Isle and Finn and the Swirly Spin, are also featured on NJ Gambling Websites as Barb’s Best Bets. In addition, both Borgata and BetMGM are participating casinos in the still ongoing monthlong NetEnt $250,000 Giveaway, and all of your play on Finn and the Swirly Spin counts toward entries in that cash prize giveaway, too!
What can you win in the Borgata and BetMGM St. Patrick’s Day Leaderboard Giveaway?
Within 24 hours after the leaderboard entry earning period concludes, the casinos will determine the distribution of prizes. notify the winners via phone or email, and credit the prizes to their accounts.
This promotion does not entail a drawing. Prizes will be based solely on players’ standing on the St. Patrick’s Day Leaderboard. The top 100 players will each win a cash prize. As the following table shows, the prizes range all the way from $20 to $1,000.
Why the St. Patrick’s Day Leaderboard promotion is worth your time
Some of you may still be on the fence about whether it would be worth your time to participate in the St. Patrick’s Day Leaderboard promotion. Here are the reasons why I recommend it.
If you play enough and are lucky enough to win one of the 100 prizes, as mentioned, all prizes are in the form of cash you can withdraw immediately. Unlike most of the giveaways on NJ gambling websites, there is no bonus to clear, so there is no further risk to your bankroll.
The only shortcoming associated with this promotion is that Borgata and BetMGM are not placing any limits on the number of leaderboard points you can earn. This will undoubtedly result in those players who can afford to bet thousands of dollars per day doing exactly that.
Keep that in mind, but don’t bet more than you can comfortably afford. No deposit is required to enter, and even if your play is not sufficient to rank on the leaderboard, all of your play counts toward earning loyalty rewards.
In addition, if you play Finn and the Swirly Spin, on top of the 96.62 percent RTP (one of the highest you’ll find anywhere online), all of your play counts in two giveaways simultaneously—this one and the NetEnt giveaway!
Lastly, apart from any prize you might win, this could be the week you could get lucky simply by playing, especially since it’s St. Patrick’s Day Week!
