    If you are looking for a Valentine’s Day gift for your loved one, there is plenty to choose from, some of which offers great value and quality and some probably not. But if you are in a hurry and don’t take the time to be selective, you could wind up overpaying or even getting an inferior product. Advertisers know exactly what to say to make their product sell, but it’s up to you to read between the lines and say yes or no.

    Choosing from the plethora of offers by NJ online casinos is no different. The casinos are going all out in the days leading up to Valentine’s Day with offers they hope you will find an irresistibly sweet deal. But which of them are only sweet for the casino? This post will take an in depth look at four of the current promotions to help you pick the best of the bunch for your style of play.


    BorgataCasino.com
    $20 for $20: February 14

    This promotion is for February 14, Valentine’s Day, only. Log in to your account anytime that day between 12 noon and 11:59 p.m., and you could be one of 20 players randomly chosen at random times to win $20 bonus dollars.

    The bonus comes with a modest wagering requirement of 1x the bonus, which must be met in the next 24 hours. Only slot games count. Players earn loyalty points, as usual, on both their cash and bonus money wagers.

    While this promotion can hardly be called exciting, it’s simple and straightforward.

    CaesarsCasino.com
    CHOOSE YOUR VALENTINE: February 10-14

    Make a deposit of $50 or more anytime from Friday, February 10 through Sunday, February 12, and you could win up to $250 in free bonus play. Here’s how it works.

    Deposit with the code SWEET and receive a guaranteed $20 in bonus play OR
    deposit with the code BEMINE and receive a mystery bonus ranging from $10 to $250.

    Either way, this is what you need to do to get started:

    1. Log into your CaesarsCasino.com account, as usual.
    2. Click on My Account and then My Bonuses.
    3. Choose either the SWEET bonus or the BEMINE bonus. Then click “Deposit” next to your choice.
    4. Deposit $50 or more and claim your bonus.

    If you choose the Mystery bonus, you will be entered into a drawing to determine the value of your prize. The distribution of prizes is as follows:

    1 winner $250 in online bonus play
    5 winners $100 in online bonus play
    50 winners $10 in online bonus play
    Everyone else $20 in online bonus play

    Bonuses will be added to players’ accounts no later than 2/15/17. Players can only be entered once and are only eligible for one prize.

    All bonuses must be claimed by 2/24/17 and are subject to the following wagering requirements prior to your being allowed to withdraw either the bonus itself or any associated winnings:
    Slots: 5x bonus
    Video poker: 10x bonus
    All other games: 25x bonus

    Players have 7 days from the time they receive the bonus to meet the wagering requirements.

    Given the choice of the SWEET bonus or the BEMINE bonus, I would opt for the latter. Although the likelihood is that the Mystery bonus will also amount to $20, the uncertainty and the possibility, though remote, of getting a 200% or 500% return on your $50 deposit, add to the fun and excitement of the promotion.

    GoldenNuggetCasino.com
    $3,000 VALENTINE’S DAY RACES: February 10-12

    This promotion is is open to all players who deposit $20 or more during the February 10-12 weekend, using the bonus code LOVE. Thereafter, your chance of walking away with a prize will depend on how much you play. So realistically, the only players who will be rewarded by participating in this promotion will be those who either deposit much more than $20 or who already have enough money on deposit to support heavy play all weekend long.

    GoldenNuggetCasino.com is simultaneously running a month long promotion called Everyone’s a Winner. That promotion is also geared primarily towards high rollers, since the top prizes will go to those who earn the most Golden Points during the month of February. However, the beauty of that promotion is that everyone who participates wins some piece of the community pot. However, only 41 players will win a prize in the Valentine’s Day Races. The top 21 on the Everyone’s a Winner leaderboard at the end of the promotional period will all win big prizes, while 20 more people will be randomly selected from the leaderboard to win a smaller prize.

    The prize distribution is as follows:

    Grand Prize Golden Nugget Getaway Weekend valued at $1,000
    2nd-10th Prize $100 bonus
    11th-21st Prize $50 bonus
    Remaining Prizes $25 bonus

    Winners will be determined and notified on Monday, February 13. All bonus money prizes are subject to a wagering requirement of 1x the bonus prior to your being able to withdraw either the bonus itself or any associated winnings. However, only slots count 100%. All other games only count 20%.

    Keep in mind that your chances of winning are based on how much you play. If you are a high end slot player with the bankroll and inclination to play for hours on end, you may love this promotion. Otherwise, it is a waste of time.

    Harrah’sCasino.com
    LUCKY IN LOVE: February 10-14

    Make a deposit of $25 or more with the bonus code LOVE17 on the HarrahsCasino.com Cashier Page anytime between February 10 and 14 and receive $14 in bonus play.

    All bonuses come with the following wagering requirements prior to your being able to withdraw either the bonus itself or any associated winnings:

    Slots: 5x bonus
    Roulette: 25x bonus
    Video poker or blackjack: 50x bonus

    Players have 14 days to complete the wagering requirements from the time the bonus funds are awarded. Only 1 bonus per player.

    The blurb for this promotion says” Flowers are nice and chocolates are sweet, but a Valentine’s bonus will sweep you right off your feet.” I think that’s quite an overstatement for this promotion. On the other hand, I think the offer is a good deal for small stakes players, provided they stick to slots. High rollers can fare better with other promotions.

    In summary, if you are a high end player, your best bets are the promotions at GoldenNuggetCasino.com and CaesarsCasino.com. If you are a small player, with the exception of the GoldenNuggetCasino.com promotion, any of the aforementioned promotions are probably worth your while.

    In my next post, I will analyze the Valentine’s Day promotions being offered at TropicanaCasino.com and its sister casino VirginCasino.com. These promotions don’t start until Monday, so you still have time. That’s one reason why I’m in less of a hurry to write about them. The other reason is that, in my opinion, if you miss these promotions, you won’t be missing much.

    What do you think of promotions like the one at CaesarsCasino.com that give you a choice between a small bonus that’s a sure thing and a possibly larger (but also possibly even smaller) mystery bonus? Given the choice, which type of bonus would you take?

    So I’m pretty much in agreement that the Golden Nugget and Caesars Casino VDay promos are the best of the bunch, although the new We Got the Love promo on Tropicana Casino is solid as well.

    As far as the Caesars Casino promo I much prefer the straight $20 bonus. If the Mystery Prize wasn’t a sweepstakes drawing, fine, it would offer comparable value. But now I’m in a drawing where only 61 players win anything, and half of those only win $10. I had to read the fine print twice to grasp the wide value gap between the two “choices.”

    Take the $20 bucks, unless you’re feeling really lucky punk.

    I elaborate upon this here.
