Players Cash In On Many New Sweepstakes
With the sudden growth explosion of the online gaming industry casinos now have a new and compelling incentive to offer additional bonuses, higher jackpots, and new sweepstakes. Almost every physical casino location has introduced a new sweepstakes promotion within the last three months. Most of these random drawings require that the player be present to win or have other restrictions such as the player must have visited the location a certain number of times in a given time period prior to the drawing.
Many gambling institutions already have some type of customer loyalty program in place. These frequently include a free identification card that the players present upon arrival, during game play, and when cashing out at the end of a visit. The players can earn big bonuses relative to the amount spent during each visit and the casino can track their progress, spending habits, and favorite games. In turn, the marketing directors can develop unique campaigns that target the specific interests of each player.
Popular rewards include free stays and complimentary meals at casino lodging areas. These freebies can be offered alone or in combination and are usually directed to guests that live outside a fifty mile radius of the casino. Sweepstakes are another big hit with the gambling community. Players respond well to the excitement of winning something, especially when there is no purchase necessary and no skill involved. Usually the only catch is that players must be present and have a valid photo identification to collect their winnings. Recently awarded prizes have included cash, electronics, vacations, and brand new cars.
So far, the marketing plan to earn new customers and retain existing players through an increased number of sweepstakes and jackpot drawings has been wildly successful. Most casinos already offer progressive game play in the slots, card tables, and video poker realms. Progressive plays provide much higher payouts, especially when more players join and the potential winnings grow higher with each passing turn. Since this progressive jackpot feature consistently draws attention from players eager to join in the fun, casinos have begun offering additional jackpot drawings as well. Sometimes these random drawings are built into slot machines and appear every so often as an unexpected bonus. Other times, the random jackpot spin will be held at a large wheel on a center stage. One lucky player will be selected based on an entry form that was physically or electronically submitted upon arrive at the casino that day.
Generally speaking, the more hype a casino can create the more players it will attract. Gamblers who enjoy recreational playing will not mind driving out of their way if it means cashing in on some random sweepstakes or jackpot spins. Players understand the art of winning and will graciously accept any additional chances to receive a fabulous prize.
