Are you scratching your head wondering what you can do to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this week?
For the second year in a row, most Cinco de Mayo celebrations across the country should be relatively low-key. The combination of the holiday falling midweek and the mandates for social distancing still in place is not conducive to large crowds and boisterous partying like the pandemic never existed. But that doesn’t mean you have to settle for just another dull day at the office.
Leave it to Hard Rock Online Casino to host a party that embodies both the “pack your worries at the door” spirit of the holiday and its own “safe and sound” and “good clean fun” motto perfectly.
Welcome to the Hard Rock Online Casino Cinco De Mayo Free Spins Festival!
When is the Hard Rock Online Casino Cinco de Mayo Free Spins Festival and who’s invited?
The fun and games started just in time for Cinco de Mayo, but this is no one-day party. You can keep coming back every Tues.-Thurs. all month long!
Everyone who is a registered player at Hard Rock Online Casino is invited.
How to participate in the Hard Rock Online Casino Cinco de Mayo Free Spins Festival
BYOB, if you wish, and we suggest having some chips & dip or other snacks handy, too, in case you get hungry or thirsty. You might as well do everything you can to enhance the party vibe. You will probably be hanging around for a while.
But this is a casino party. So, instead of spinning pinatas, you will be treated to free spins galore on some of the top slots on NJ gambling websites. Each week in May that you choose to attend, to ensure that you never get bored, you will get 50 Free Spins on a different designated slot!
But first things first. Here’s what you need to do to get your 50 Free Spins every week in May:
- Log into your HardRockCasino.com account on Wed., or Thurs. each week in May. Check the casino website for the specified times.
- Make a single deposit of $30 or more.
- Go to the Game of the Day and claim your offer.
Then take your 50 free spins.
Note that any winnings from the free spins will be in the form of bonus funds with additional wagering requirements rather than immediately withdrawable cash. Furthermore, you only have 48 hours from the time you receive your free spins to use them in their entirety and clear the bonus. Therefore, we suggest that you take your free spins immediately or as soon as possible.
During week 1, in honor of Cinco de Mayo, take 50 Free Spins on Spinata Grande!
As mentioned, each week you take advantage of this fantastic offer, Hard Rock Online Casino will award you with 50 spins on a different designated slot. From May 4 through May 6, it’s Spinata Grande.
If this online slot by NetEnt with 5 reels, 4 rows, and 40 fixed paylines sounds familiar to you, it could be because, three years ago, on May 4, 2018, I featured it here on NJ Gambling Websites as Barb’s Best Bet. Then in another article on March 12, 2021 on NJ Online Casino, I included Spinata Grande again as one of the top 10 online slots of all time!
Spinata Grande is worthy of those accolades for multiple reasons, but mostly because its RTP of 96.80 percent is one of the highest of any NJ online slots.
There’s even a mariachi band to entertain you so there’s never a dull moment. Meanwhile, two wild symbols, a colossal key symbol, and a special bonus round with extra Free Spins (on top of the 50 Free Spins you’re already getting) keep the wins coming.
Then spin to win more in weeks 2, 3, and 4 with three other great slots
Hard Rock could not have picked a more perfect slot for your Cinco de Mayo Free Spins. But if you think that after this week this incredible promotion is over, think again because the party is just getting started.
The other three slots on which Hard Rock will offer 50 Free Spins won’t disappoint either because besides being a ton of fun to play, they, too, have an RTP of 96 percent or better.
Play Willy’s Hot Chillies May 11 – May 13
Keep the caliente South of the Border party vibe alive with this NetEnt slot during the second week of May. This time you don’t have to don your own sombrero or bring any pinatas, peppers, and hot sauce to the party. All that and more is being served up to you on the screen!
More importantly, look out for stacked wilds and the potentially highly lucrative and super-exciting Hot Wheel Bonus Round as you spin to win. You could win up to 2,000x your stake.
Willy’s Hot Chillies has 5 reels, 3 rows, 20 fixed paylines, and an RTP of 96.00 percent.
Play Butterfly Staxx 2 May 18 – May 20
NetEnt is one of the leading and most prolific manufacturers of online slots, and Butterfly Staxx 2, the 2019 sequel to the original Butterfly Staxx released in 2018, is a good example of this company’s versatility. Rather than entice you with nonstop action and excitement, Butterfly Staxx 2 keeps you fixated on the screen with its exquisite symbols and symphony of colors. It may be too laid back for some players’ tastes. But if you’re simply looking for a pleasant and relaxing way to lift your spirits, you can’t go wrong. Low-medium volatility but the chance to win big anyway is the cherry on the sundae.
Butterfly Staxx 2 has 5 reels, 4 rows, 40 fixed paylines, and an RTP of 96.35 percent.
Play Asgardian Stones May 25 – May 27
Last but certainly not least, you can take a trip all the back to ancient times playing the mythological-themed slot Asgardian Stones, also by NetEnt.
Fantastic visual and sound effects and special features galore should make this online slot one you will want to play often. For starters, every win starts an avalanche that could lead to another win! Other special features include colossal symbols, a Colossal Crush feature, a Bonus Wheel, and Free Spins.
Low-medium volatility combined with a very high RTP and wide bet range add to the appeal to small bettors and high rollers alike.
Asgardian Stones has 5 reels, 3 rows, 20 fixed paylines, and an RTP of 96.31 percent.
Wagering requirements for the bonus money
In order to access the free spins on all four of these slot games, you will need to deposit a total of $120–$30 each week.
But before you will be permitted to withdraw any winnings from the free spins, you will need to meet the casino’s additional specified wagering requirements. You can choose any online casino game you wish, but the amount you need to wager will vary as follows, depending on the type of game:
- Slots: 5x bonus
- Video Poker or table games: 25x bonus
Because the wagering requirements for non-slot play are so much higher, your best bet is to clear your bonus entirely with slots. However, to maximize your chances of keeping your winnings, either clear the bonus with the same game you just won on or another slot with a return to player (RTP) of 96 percent or better.
Additional terms and conditions
You can only claim your offer for the 50 Free Spins once each week and only during the specified times each Tues. – Thurs.
Any free spins not taken during the 48 hours allotted to you will be forfeited. Likewise, any attempt to withdraw the bonus money prematurely or failure to complete the associated wagering requirements during the same 48-hour period will cause you to forfeit both the bonus and any additional winnings therefrom.
Summary and conclusion
The deposit and play requirements are very reasonable. And because your activity is spaced out over a four-week period, this is a promotion that virtually any player can afford. Moreover, you will be taking your free spins on four of the casino’s top slots, so your chances of winning are excellent.
So, if Hard Rock Online Casino is one of your favorite places to play, by all means, take the casino up on this offer. “Party like a Hard Rock star legend” safely and inexpensively not only during Cinco de Mayo week but every week of May.
