The joy of Christmas gambling
It’s Christmas time and that means fun, family, friends, food, gifts, and huge excitement too! It also means some exclusive gambling opportunities for you too, so keep an eye on your online casino this festive season and make sure you don’t miss a minute of the action!
1. Christmas bonuses
Some people are lucky enough to receive Christmas bonuses at work, but did you know you can also get Christmas bonuses at online casinos too? That’s right! Take a look at what your casino’s up to for the holidays, because you could find a little Christmas magic coming your way!
First, if you’re thinking about signing up with a new online casino, December could be the right time for it – that’s because many casinos offer even better welcome bonuses around Christmas time, as an added incentive for new players. Which means you could soon find a gift of a bonus coming your way!
That’s not all – there are plenty of holiday promotions and other bonuses you could be claiming too. Take a look at your casino’s website and any promotional emails you might have received, because these could be jam-packed with festive promos and giveaways for you.
What’s more, the holiday season could be a bumper bonus season for you too, with a huge range of reload bonuses, refer-a-friend bonuses, payment mechanism bonuses, no deposit bonuses, high roller bonuses and more, just sitting under the tree for you, waiting to be unwrapped!
So what does that mean for you? That’s there’s a wealth of Christmas winning out there for you – all you need to do is make sure you’re open to all the opportunities that come your way, and then claim them. It could turn out to be a very merry Christmas for you indeed!
2. Christmas-themed slots
If you haven’t guessed by now, we are HERE for Christmas-themed slots! Was it our 1,537 slot reviews that gave us away? That’s because Christmas is a time for gaming operators to go all out with their originality and creativity, and package it all in a gorgeous Christmas theme. Snowmen, reindeer, elves, gifts and of course Santa Claus himself – plus western, sci-fi, traditional and fantasy Christmas slots as well. If you’re someone who loves themed slots as much as we do, then now is your time! Take as many as you like for a spin and see if there are any holiday rewards waiting for you. It’s beginning to look a lot like winning!
3. Christmas tournaments
In the same way as your casino could be offering Christmas-themed bonuses and slots, keep an eye out for any potential Christmas tournaments too. As promotions go, they could be a good way to get your gambling on, and to win cash and prizes too. What’s more, tournaments are yet another way to enjoy gambling over the holiday season – so browse your casino’s website to see what they’ve got in store for you in December, and if there’s anything special coming up make sure to get in the game!
4. Christmas gifts
These can go one of two ways – either you give your family and friends your own Christmas wish list of gambling-themed gifts, or you can buy them for someone who’s a fan instead. Or actually both, now that we think of it!
Whichever option you choose, there are so many ways to go with gambling gifts. First of all, there’s good old cash – it’s basic but it still works, and could be a very well-timed boost for your end-of-year bankroll. Along the same lines, there’s also the tried and trusted idea of buying lottery tickets for someone, or even asking for them yourself. In fact, along with some yummy choccies, this is one of our favourite Secret Santa gifts – sweet treats plus a potential jackpot too!
Then there are the more traditional types of gambling gifts – playing cards, actual casino games to play at home, cufflinks shaped like dice, and so on. Or if it’s been a good year for you, then maybe even an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the home of gambling, Las Vegas itself! That’s the kind of casino-themed gift we could really get excited about!
5. Christmas parties
While we love gambling online, it’s a little difficult to have a Christmas party by yourself at a virtual venue. That’s where casino Christmas parties come in! Because whether you’re hosting an office party or an event for family and friends, you can still up the ante with a gambling theme. And because it’s the season of giving, all proceeds can go to a charity of your choice.
So, where do you start? First of all, with the games you’re going to be offering. Unless you can hire in some slot machines at a nice price, table games are going to be your best bet. Keep it simple with crowd-pleasers like Poker, Blackjack, Baccarat or Craps, hire what you need from a party store or buy it online, and you’re set. Also remember that you’ll need croupiers to run the games too, so see if you have any friends or colleagues who’d like to oblige, and away you go!
Next up it’s decorations – because there’s nothing worse than throwing a party with no atmosphere. If you’re having an office party, make sure your colleagues are ok with you decorating work spaces and so on – but if you’re throwing your party at a private home, then you can go to town! Also consider giving your party an extra Christmas theme too, because watching elves and Santa Claus get stuck into a game of Blackjack is the gift that keeps on giving.
You’ll need to have food and drinks at your party, so make sure there’s enough in the budget for both. Office parties might have rules about alcohol being served, so make sure you bear this in mind if it comes up. You may also want to consider gambling-themed food and drinks, like card suit toppers for cupcakes, a red and black theme for table decorations, and maybe even a signature cocktail – anything to get the party started and give it a vibe.
Finally, don’t forget that gambling without a license is illegal, even at parties, so make sure to keep your colleagues and friends on the right side of the law. Rather than betting money at the tables, ask them to pay a certain amount at the door (if you’re using the party as a fundraiser), or simply let them in for free and give them casino chips to play with at the tables. If you do raise any money, you can donate it to charity, and as for the person who comes out with the most chips at the end of the party, a fabulous prize will do nicely. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
