The majority of online casino enthusiasts fall into one of two categories – slots lovers and blackjack aficionados. Any regular bonus seeker will tell you, though, that the majority of promotions are geared towards slots players, while blackjack games get very little attention from marketing campaigns. That’s because slots have a higher house edge, guaranteeing a profit for operators. But US-facing online casino Bovada is making sure their blackjack fans are well accommodated with a new weekly promo worth up to $100 every weekend.
The Blackjack Weekends promotion started in mid-October and could become a permanent staple of the Bovada community since no end date has been announced for the promotional period. Blackjack players can hit the tables every weekend, from Friday through Sunday, and the more points they earn playing their favorite variations of 21, the higher the reward will be.
Every 200 casino points generated while playing any eligible variant of blackjack between Friday and Sunday is worth a $10 free casino chip. Players can earn up to 10 chips for a maximum value of $100 each and every weekend. Eligible blackjack games include the following:
- Double Deck Blackjack
- European Blackjack
- Face Up 21
- Match Play 21
- Mini Blackjack (in Sportsbook / Racebook)
- Mobile Blackjack
- Mobile Zappit Blackjack
- Perfect Pairs
- Single Deck Blackjack
- Super 21
- Zappit Blackjack
Once the clock strikes midnight on Sunday night, a total of the player’s casino points earned on blackjack games will be tallied. The player is then notified via email (within 48 hours) how much they earned. The email will also contain a special bonus code, which can be used to redeem the free online casino chips. Players have 90 days to use the code and redeem their bonus before it expires.
Since the casino chip is considered a free online casino bonus, there will be some wagering requirements attached to its usage. Bovada asks that the bonus be rolled over 20x before a withdrawal of the funds can be processed. Players can clear the bonus on the majority of the site’s 150+ game variety, including most of the blackjack games eligible for obtaining the casino chip, with just a few notable exclusions: Baccarat, Craps, Double Deck Blackjack, Mini Blackjack (in Sportsbook and Racebook), Roulette, Sic Bo and Single Deck Blackjack.
Originating from the Bodog brand that was established two decades ago in 1994 by the famed Calvin Ayre (who is no longer associated with the brand for legal reasons), Bovada has carried the same level of contentiousness in regards to its players that the company was built upon so long ago. The mission has always been to accommodate everyone, and they’ve lived up to that goal time and time again.
Bovada offers a wide range of promotional offers for all of its members, encompassing a full scale online casino, poker room, sportsbook and racebook. For new members of the online casino, a series of 8 bonuses can be claimed as part of a $3,000 welcome package. They can be claimed in any order, with four of them delivering a 100% up to $500 deposit bonus geared towards slots fans (bonus code “SLOTS500”), and the other four paying 100% up to $250 for fans of blackjack and other table games (bonus code “GAMES250”).
