One of the first and most promoted bonus contests on the site is a classic play pot battle jackpot. The way it works on Winward Casino is pretty straightforward. Each day, you have the opportunity to pay $75 to join the daily battle pot. After joining, every dollar your gamble that day gets recorded, and at the end of the day, the 15 people who bet the most during that day, win a share of the jackpot. The jackpot varies, but seems to be about $3000 for the first place winner, and $78 for the 15th place person. There is no drawing or randomness about choosing the winner, it is strictly based on how much you gamble during the day after buying the $75 entry ticket. Winward lists the winners, how much they bet on the day they won, and which games they played. To put it in perspective, on most days the person who wins first place bets in excess of $1,000,000 while the 15th place winner is usually around $30,000 worth of gambling. So in other words, it is not worth buying a $75 ticket unless you have some serious plans for gambling that day.
Winward Casino also has traditional matching bonus codes which change every day, but are very similar and scheduled weekly. The matching cash bonus is tier-based and determined by the amount of your deposit. For example, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, a deposit of $1000 will earn you a 300% matching bonus. A deposit of $500-$999 will earn you a matching bonus of 250%, $200-$499 earns a bonus of 200% and any deposit up to $200 will earn a 150% bonus. The matching bonuses for each tier change slightly depending on the day of the week, with Saturday being the highest matching bonus at 350% for $1000 deposits.
The deposit matching bonuses listed above come with many restrictions. For starters, the play-through is a whopping 99x´s before the money can be withdrawn. The maximum cash-out depends on your VIP status at Winward Casinos with the lowest level being Bronze, with only a $1000 cash-out limit. Your VIP status level fluctuates based on how much your play at Winward casino and the amount you are gambling. Winward Casino also requires that you have made a deposit within 5 days of requesting a withdrawal. As with any online Casino, the restrictions for withdrawals can be complex and confusing depending on your circumstances and location, it is very important to review the Terms of Service page before making any deposit to ensure that you will be able to easily withdrawal any winnings as well as qualify for promotions and bonus deposit matching.
Winward Casino also offers occasional other contests, for the month of May they are promoting a contest to win a trip for 2 to view the Monaco Grand Prix. But similar to their jackpot battle described at the beginning of this article, this promotion also is simply won by the person who has gambled the most amount of money during the course of the contest, which is May 9th to May 22nd, 2016.
