This Golden Nugget Giveaway is “Solid Gold”
The two new Atlantic City casinos don’t have a monopoly on the exciting things for NJ players to do this weekend. If you’re a player at Golden Nugget Online Casino, besides being able to have nearly as much fun playing online or on on your mobile device from the comfort of your own home, GoldenNuggetCasino.com will be giving away $50,000 in prizes! A whopping $5,000 of that money is being set aside for the Grand Prize winner. But if that’s not you, don’t worry because in this incredibly generous promotion, everybody wins something! No wonder GoldenNuggetCasino.com is calling this promotion Solid Gold Weekend!
How long will the Solid Gold Golden Nugget Giveaway Promotion last?
The latest Golden Nugget Giveaway promotion lasts for four glorious days. It started Friday, June 29 and won’t end until 11:59 p.m. Monday, July 2.
How to Participate in the Solid Gold Weekend Golden Nugget Giveaway
If you’re a GoldenNuggetCasino.com player and wish to participate, here is what you need to do.
- Log into your GoldenNuggetCasino.com account anytime during the promotion period, but the sooner the better.
- Claim the offer from Available Bonuses.
- Play your favorite online games.
The minimum amount you will need to wager to be eligible for a prize is $100. This will earn you one entry. However, all players have the option (apparently unlimited) to earn additional entries simply by wagering more. Each additional $100 wagered earns you one additional entry. “Weighted wagering applies.”
What You Can Win the Solid Gold Weekend Golden Nugget Giveaway
As mentioned, the top prize is $5,000. However, an unlimited number of other players will also receive a prize. The breakdown of how the various prizes will be distributed is shown below.
- First place: $5,000 bonus
- 2nd and 3rd place: $500 bonus each
- 4th through 8th place: $200 bonus each
- 9th through 28th place: $100 bonus each
- 29th through 400th place: $20 bonus each
- All others who opt in and earn at least one entry: $10 bonus each
Not a Drawing
It is important to note that the distribution of the above prizes will not be determined by a drawing. It will be based solely on where each player stands compared to other players in the number of entries earned. The standings are updated hourly.
If you haven’t started playing yet and have fantasies of what it would be like to win a $5,000 bonus or even a $500 bonus, unless you are a super high roller, forget it. As of this writing (11 p.m. Friday), the player in the No. 1 spot has already accumulated 5,948 entries, wagering at least $118,960!
But even if you’re a small player, and can only afford to wager $100, or a small multiple thereof, you should still participate and get your guaranteed $10 bonus.
Awarding of Prizes
All prizes are in the form of bonus money added to the player’s account. All winners will be announced and all prizes will be awarded by 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 5.
Wagering Requirements for the Bonus
Any bonus money received in this promotion is subject to the following wagering requirements:
- Most slots: 1x bonus
- Excluded slots* and all other games: 5x bonus
*Golden Nugget Online Casino recently launched its 500th slot game, giving anyone who wishes to clear the bonus with slots an enormous choice. However, 21 slot games (listed on the website) only count 20%, rather than 100%, towards meeting the wagering requirements. This means that if you choose to clear the bonus playing any of these excluded slots, you will incur the same 5x bonus wagering requirement as for non-slot play.
Unfortunately, the excluded slots include some of the games with the highest return to player (RTP). But you will still find many other high returning slot games where a 1x bonus wagering requirement still applies.
Other Terms and Conditions
The casino is giving you up to seven days to complete the wagering requirements. During the interim, while the bonus playthrough is still in progress, you will be temporarily unable to withdraw either the bonus or any winnings resulting from the bonus. However, as soon as the bonus is cleared, provided it is within the allotted time frame, this money is yours.
Keep in mind that cancelling the bonus, attempting to withdraw unavailable funds prematurely, or failure to complete the wagering on time will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any bonus-related winnings.
The Bottom Line–You Can’t Lose in this Golden Nugget Giveaway!
Like many other promotions at GoldenNuggetCasino.com, this one clearly favors high rollers. Unless you’re a huge bettor, there is no way you’re going to be awarded a big bonus. However, what saves the day for everyone else is the unlimited rewards feature. As long as you wager at least $100 before the four day promotion period is over, you’re golden. Granted a $10 bonus isn’t much, but considering how little is required of you to get it, you might as well grab it.
