As the calendar turned to April, West Virginia online casinos adjusted and rolled out some new promotions.
Both DraftKings Casino WV and BetMGM WV are offering a few ways to earn some extra cash this month. Besides providing online sportsbooks in the state, they remain the only two mobile platforms for casino betting.
That being said, they’re doing quite all right.
Combined, the two online casinos pulled in around $4 million in revenue in March. Both apps made at least $1.7 million, while together they saw over $120 million in overall handle.
To keep up the momentum, they both have promos in place for bettors in the Mountain State. Let’s take a look at the best deals and everything you need to know to cash in.
DraftKings Casino April 2021 promotions
DraftKings is very popular, in part because both its online casino and sportsbook are constantly littered with new promos.
With the start of the month, its casino presented its April Leaderboard.
DraftKings is giving the top 10,000 bettors who earn the most points during the promotion period part of the $1 million prize pool.
Some of the top prizes are quite sizable, including the $100,000 to first place. The top five finishers will each make at least $5,000, and even those who barely place still earn $5.
By opting in to the leaderboard, you’ll have access to other special promotions within the same game.
For example, on Thursday, the online casino gave $5 DK Dollars to bettors who wagered $10 on DraftKings Baseball Blackjack.
This money will be credited to your account automatically within 24 hours.
Not only will betting on these games provide you with immediate bonuses, but you’ll also get points toward the leaderboard.
Online casino customers earn points based on the following:
- 1 point per $1 bet on table games and video poker
- 5 points per $1 bet on all live dealer or DK games
- 5 points per $1 bet on slot games
Once one daily bonus wraps up, DraftKings will have another in place a day or so later.
On Friday, this switches over to any slots games. DraftKings is rewarding those who bet $100 on any slots with $10 in credit.
This portion of the leaderboard is available through Sunday, April 11.
On Tuesday, 1,000 customers who wager at least $50 on any slots can win $50 in credit by being randomly selected. Thursday has a similar deal, but this time, you must bet $200 on any DK game for a chance to win $200.
Next Friday, this offer will give bettors $10 in Global Free Credits after they bet $100 on any slots.
The April Leaderboard concludes on the 19th. Be sure to check in on DraftKings’ promotions page to confirm which challenge is available now.
DraftKings Casino Hot Streaks
The online casino also has an entirely different promo running this month. With its Casino Hot Streaks, blackjack players can win big.
DraftKings is providing a total of $110,000 in credit to those who can set the longest streak on any of its eligible blackjack games. If you’re able to post the longest winning streak on a certain game, then you’ll earn $10,000.
To have a chance to win, you need to play one of the provided games and wager a minimum of $5 a hand.
So in total, there are 11 different games listed that you can play and set the mark. They range from baseball and basketball to retro and vacation blackjack.
Currently, 18 is the biggest streak up, while 13 is the low number.
The promotion finishes at the end of the month. If you aren’t lucky enough to win in April, it appears the online casino will have this going forward as well.
BetMGM Casino April 2021 promos
BetMGM also has WV casino bettors covered with some deals to take advantage of.
The first is through its Red Riding Hood Bet & Get promotion. By wagering $10 on the game Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood, you’ll win a $5 free play.
The free credit is sent to your account immediately; however, you must use the $5 on the same Red Riding Hood title.
This promo is now available through Sunday, April 11. The best part about that is you can earn the $5 free play each day it’s still up.
BetMGM customers have the opportunity to receive up to three bonuses per day, too.
Through the online casino’s Triple Play, bettors can earn extra money just for wagering on games as they normally would. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through December, customers can get three instant bonuses each day based on how much they bet.
The bonuses are based on the following:
- Win $5 after betting $20
- Win $25 after betting $250
- Win $100 after betting $10,000
All bonuses come in the form of a free play. This money is accessible to use immediately within the online casino.
So if you happen to bet a lot through BetMGM, there’s no reason not to opt in to this promo. Technically, if you wager enough, you can earn a total of nine bonuses over the weekend, totaling $390.
