Free stuff from a casino? Inconceivable! Not so fast – Atlantic City’s Tropicana is dishing up lots of ways to have fun, for free, in and around the casino.
As you probably imagined, they aren’t promoting free casino games with real money prizes. You’ll still have to pay for those attractions. But a trip to the Jersey Shore shouldn’t just be about gambling. Fortunately, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the Tropicana without spending a single dime.
It’s sad to say, but the reality is that many beaches along the eastern coastline are no longer free to visit. You’ll actually have to purchase a beach badge to play in the waves and get your tan on, or keep a wary eye out for the intermittent badge checkers who are all too eager to kick out non-paying visitors.
However, the entire shoreline of sandy beaches that serve as a backyard playground for the Tropicana are 100% free, public-access beaches.
Everyone loves fireworks! You can wait until the Fourth of July and fight traffic to get a good spot for your local town’s annual display, or come to the Tropicana and watch the phenomenal firework exhibition that takes place every Saturday night, from June 4 to September 10, 2016.
They are quite a vision to behold from the boardwalk, but those who bring a lounger onto the beach get the best overhead view of all.
Free Bingo, Anyone?
If you like bingo – and who doesn’t like bingo? – you’ll love playing on Tropicana’s free online bingo site, Free90BallBingo.com. Every 30 seconds, a new 90 ball bingo game starts, and anyone 21+ located in the state of New Jersey is welcome to play for free.
You won’t find any real cash prizes up for grabs in the free games, but winners do receive ‘Bonus Money‘ prizes that can be used to play real money bingo games, where actual cash prizes are awarded.
Free Casino Games on Mobile
The TropWorld Casino App offers a multitude of free casino games that can be played anywhere, anytime, on just about any smartphone or other mobile device. They are the same type of exciting games found on the Tropicana casino floor, like slot machines, video poker and blackjack.
Again, there’s no cash prizes in the free casino games app, but you can have fun and brush up on your skills before hitting the real games at The Trop.
Free Summer Boardwalk Block Party, May 27
To commemorate the completion of an immense, $40 million renovation project, Tropicana is hosting a free Summer Boardwalk Block Party on Friday, May 27, from 8-10pm. What better way to kick off your Memorial Day weekend than by enjoying the free entertainment of a live DJ, street performers, a marching band, characters from Boogie Nights and free party favors for all? To top it off, the party ends with more free fireworks!
New Camaro or $20k?
Situated in a miniscule nook of the Tropicana, between the Time After Time watch store and Bluemercury Spa, is a small table where all passersby can sign up for a chance to win their choice of a free 2016 Chevy Camaro, or $20,000 in cash. Look for the ‘Vacation Villas‘ sign. There’s no purchase necessary, and anyone over 21 is eligible to enter.
Now the fine people with Vacation Villas aren’t just standing around to look pretty. They want to sell vacation packages and timeshares in Aruba. You may be subject to a promotional spiel about that while filling out your info, but for such a prize, it’s worth the time and easy enough to say “No, thank you,” as you move on to the next free casino adventure.
