Gone are the days when casinos were the only ones who could host their own promotions. Many major slot developers have started to host network promotions, where a promotion or competition is hosted on the slot itself and is available to play for at any casino which hosts that developer's slots.
NetEnt is one of the main slot developers who has started to push out network promotions more and more regularly, with at least one big promotion being hosted on a major NetEnt slot every single month. This month, NetEnt is giving away a trip to Hawaii through their Aloha Cluster Pays slot. In this guide, we'll take a look at how network promotions work and how you can go about winning that amazing trip to Hawaii through playing NetEnt slot games.
Head to any casino and you'll see a list of their promotions, which explain to players what promotions are available at that casino. Every casino will have its own unique promotions and bonuses which they use to attract the players that they want, and you won't find many casinos offering the exact same promotions, unless they're running on the same software. GoWin uses Nektan software for its casino, so its promotions share some similarities with other Nektan powered casinos.
On the one hand, this can be very useful for customers, who benefit from the fact that casinos have to stay competitive with one another, therefore getting to pick the best of the bunch, depending on which promotions they like the look of. On the other hand, it can be relatively annoying signing up with multiple casinos, simply because you like what both casinos have to offer in terms of their promotions. To play the selection of promotions you want, you have to end up signing with a few casinos in order to get that perfect balance of promotions.
For slot developers especially, this setup was a grueling nightmare. If a slot developer like NetEnt ever wanted to set up a promotion on one of its slots in order to boost its player numbers, they'd have to directly chat to every single casino which hosts it. For a NetEnt slot, this means talking to hundreds of online casinos, which would all have to agree on every element of the promotion, from the prizes that are being given away, all the way to the dates that its being held on.
By hosting a network promotion, NetEnt get to cut out the middleman. NetEnt can host the promotion on their own game, which is then tracked by NetEnt themselves. They track who's playing, who wins and then get in touch with them directly. All the prizes come straight out of NetEnt's pocket, so they handle everything to do with the promotion, without the need for assistance from casinos.
Casinos can choose to advertise that the promotion is going on, and if they really disagree with it, they can pull out of the promotion. But for the most part, NetEnt effectively runs their own promotion remotely, across any casinos which host their games.
GoWin Casino is playing host to one of those NetEnt network promotions from Monday 3rd July, all the way until Sunday 9th July. The main prize is a trip to Honolulu in Hawaii, with runners up splitting the remaining share of £10,000, which will be real cash money since it's being handed out by NetEnt personally.
The promotion is a random prize draw, using tickets that players can earn from playing Aloha Cluster Pays. Play £10 on the Aloha Cluster Pays slot and you can earn yourself one ticket into the final prize draw. Players can earn a maximum of 50 tickets per day, and although you can win the grand prize as long as you have one ticket in the raffle, the more tickets you win, the greater chance you have of being selected.
Draws will be held on Monday 10th July and the winners will be contacted by Tuesday 11th July. Anyone who plays on Aloha Cluster Pays at a casino will be included in the draw. Because the prize and promotion is being hosted by NetEnt, any issues will have to be discussed with them and not GoWin personally. The prizes will be given out to the top three players:
The winners of the Honolulu, Hawaii experience can look forward to an all expenses paid trip which includes:
You can head to GoWin from the 3rd July and start playing Aloha Cluster Pays in order to put yourself in the running to win that incredible trip away or a healthy bit of cash to put towards your own once in a lifetime trip. And of course, every promotion at GoWin will still be up for grabs whilst NetEnt hosts its own exceptional network promotion!
