Golden Nugget Free Play Bonus Giveaway


Golden Nugget Online Casino has just unveiled a new promotion that could be a golden opportunity for you to pad your online account with extra betting money. It’s this weekend’s massive Golden Nugget Free Play Bonus Giveaway, with a total prize pool of $10,000, starting today, January 26. 300 lucky players will win prizes and you could win up to $1,500 in free bonus play!

When Can You Participate in the Golden Nugget Free Play Bonus Giveaway?

This promotion is in effect from Friday, January 26, 2018 through Sunday, January 28, 2018.

How to Participate in the Golden Nugget Free Play Bonus Giveaway

As long as you are a registered player, you can participate in this promotion. Simply log into your account and claim the Golden Nugget $10,000 GIVEAWAY offer from Available Promotions, and you will automatically receive your first entry into the drawing.

However, you can earn additional entries and thereby improve your chances of winning by making one or more deposits into your account and wagering the deposit once. For every $100 you deposit and wager during the promotion period, you will receive one additional entry.

What You Can Win

A random drawing will take place on Tuesday, January 30 to determine all of the winners. The 300 prizes will be distributed as follows:

First place:               $1,500 Free Play Bonus

2nd-3rd place:            $500 Free Play Bonus

4th-20th place:          $200 Free Play Bonus

21st-50th place:         $50 Free Play Bonus

51st-140th place:       $20 Free Play Bonus

141st-300th place:    $5 Free Play Bonus

Bonus Money Wagering Requirements

All prizes won in the Golden Nugget Free Play Bonus Giveaway are subject to these additional wagering requirements before you will be permitted to withdraw either the bonus itself or any resulting winnings:

  • Slots: 1x bonus
  • All Other Games: 5x bonus

For the purpose of clearing the bonus, the player’s own deposited money is used first and then the bonus money. Players have 7 days to complete the wagering. Attempted premature withdrawal of either the bonus or related winnings or failure to complete the wagering on time will result in forfeiture of both.

What Could be Better About the Golden Nugget Free Play Bonus Giveaway

The Golden Nugget Free Play Giveaway top prizes are great. However, 140 of the 300 winners will only receive a $5 bonus. While I’m strongly in favor of drawings where there are many prizewinners and not just a handful, a drawing with 200 winners (rather than 300) and $20 (rather than $5) as the smallest prize might be better.

A second problem with this drawing is that there is apparently no limit to the number of entries any one player can have. Players with deep pockets, for whom depositing and wagering thousands of dollars on very short notice is no problem, can rack up so many entries compared to other players that non-high rollers have little chance.

Even so, the one thing you definitely should not do is deposit a lot more than you would ordinarily just to earn the additional entries. Remember that you also have to wager the deposit for it to count. Theoretically, you could deposit and wager $5,000 and then, despite having 51 entries (including your one free entry), wind up with a mere $5 bonus or no bonus at all!

Golden Nugget Giveaway Great Features

One great feature of this promotion is the tremendous number of prizes. With the luck of the draw, some of these prizes, and maybe even some top prizes, should go to players with relatively few entries. You won’t know until you try, and it’s definitely worth a try!

A second great feature is the very reasonable wagering requirements for the prize money: 1x the bonus for slots or 5x the bonus for any other game. You are given a whole week to complete the wagering, too, so even for the larger prizes, it should not be a problem.


You have to decide how much money you are willing to tie up in deposits and wagers to increase your chance of winning a prize. Under no circumstances should this amount be more than you can comfortably afford. With 300 prizes up for grabs in the Golden Nugget Free Play Bonus Giveaway, many of them are token prizes, but there is also a chance to win something spectacular.
