Hello all.

I recently moved to New Jersey and signed up for the Tropicana online casino where they are offering $20 in free play and a straight up $100 loss rebate just for signing up. I've looked at the Wiz' page on loss rebates for both slots and video poker but was unclear on whether the optimal play would be to play a highly volatile (TDB or DDB) video poker option at $10/hand, or playing a $10 double diamonds slot as listed on his slot loss rebate page. From reading the terms, it seems to be a no-restriction straight up refund of your initial deposit up to $100 after losing it in the first 7 days, so just looking for the best option to go after with this freeroll. Also curious if it is best to just go at it for the $10/hand (only 12 playable credits) or to lower the denom slightly. Seems like I should go for the $10 denom, but any insight would be great!

I would guess your rebate is in free play even if it isn't clear. It's very doubtful they wouldn't use free play just because it's cheaper and requires more play. For $100 free play, I dont understand fretting. It's a nice position to be in, it's only one time for your life, and you might have already wasted more time than absolute perfection is worth.

There is something worth considering though. What affect does the initial $20 fp have on the $100 loss rebate?

Full rules listed here by clicking on "rules" underneath the "deposit now" button. From everything I am reading, it looks like to be just a $100 deposit back into your account and is immediately withdrawable under rule 5.2 of the listed rules, so it appears to be a true freeroll with no strings attached.

I'd definitely recommend sending an email to them first if you have any questions and to tie them down on their answers. As always, be careful about what you read, make sure statements are clear and dont have multiple meanings where you think they're saying something they're not.

I didn't read the terms just because they're too small and too many. Since I'm not participating.

how do you get the $20 in free play?

You need to figure out how to do the loss rebate, since they're giving you $20 in FP first does that count towards winning/losing? If so then it's not really $20 in FP...

Next, once you go to actually do the rebate, variance is your friend. I'd promote TDB over DDB, but either are a fine option if one pay-table really outshines the other. There are "best" ways to play them, but in general variance is your friend and your target win goal is about half of the rebate value.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.
