Community Jackpots are over and above winning wager payouts
ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (November 17, 2014) — TropicanaCasino.com, the real-money online casino from Tropicana Atlantic City, announces a major milestone. The site has paid out $1 million in Community Jackpots to online players since its launch in November of 2013.
The Community Jackpot is an additional prize pool that is paid out on top of any game-specific winnings. Players become eligible by making real money wagers on any of the more than 50 casino games available on TropicanaCasino.com.
By clicking on a special key icon that appears in the bar above the game, players can learn if they have succeeded in unlocking a primary Platinum Jackpot of $10,000, a Gold Jackpot of $5,000, a Copper Jackpot of $1,000 or a Green Jackpot of $500.
The “community” aspect is brought into play by an additional prize pool of up to $20,000, which is split among all online players who have made a real money wager within the last hour. The lucky key holder that unlocked the Jackpot gets paid twice – once with the primary jackpot award and again with a share of the Community Jackpot.
“When one person hits this bonus jackpot, everyone feels the rush of excitement” said General Manager Steve Callender. “Any player who has placed a real money bet within an hour of the Community Jackpot being won is awarded a share — even if they have already logged off the site.”
Players who forget to click their key icon can rest assured that TropicanaCasino.com automatically checks to see if that key would have been a prize winner within five minutes of the player logging off.
“We don’t want anyone to miss out on their chance to strike it rich,” Callender continued.
Unique to the TropicanaCasino.com’s Gamesys platform, the Community Jackpot can be triggered on any of the site’s slot or table games, including favorites like Cleopatra and Goldfish. That means in addition to any possible slot winnings triggered by the game, players enjoy the chance of scoring a Community Jackpot with every spin.
“Our land-based Atlantic City casino excels at offering players fun, value and variety, and our online casino is no different,” Callender continued. “By reaching the milestone of $1 million in Community Jackpot payouts, we are further strengthening our position as a leader in online gaming.”
