How to Participate in the Golden Nugget Online Independence Day Celebration

Some of the NJ online casinos are extending their Independence Day special offers for several days, but this one at Golden Nugget Online Casino is for Wednesday, July 4 only. If you wish to participate, here’s what you need to do:

  • Log into your account anytime today, July 4.
  • Claim the Independence Day Celebration offer from Available Bonuses andmake a single deposit of $20 or more.
Deposit $220 to get the maximum bonus

Your 20% bonus up to $44 will be credited to your account instantly. However, keep in mind that because the casino is matching your deposit only 20% and not 100%, in order to get the maximum bonus of $44, a $220 deposit is required.

If you only deposit the $20 minimum, your bonus will only be $4–hardly worth the bother. So if you can afford to deposit $220 instead, it is strongly recommended.

On the other hand, if you deposit more than $220, your bonus is still capped at $44. So there is no point in doing so, unless your account is empty or close to it and you want to have additional funds available for wagering purposes.

Note, too, that this offer can only be claimed once and with a single deposit.

Wagering Requirements for the Independence Day Bonus

The Independence Day Bonus is subject to the same wagering requirements and other terms and conditions as most other bonuses at this casino. This means that before you will be able to withdraw not only the bonus itself, but also the deposit tied to the bonus and any bonus-related winnings, you will have to wager the bonus as follows, depending on your game choice:

  • Most slot games: 10x bonus
  • Excluded slots* and all other games: 50x bonus

“If you’re a slot player the number of different games you can choose from to clear your bonus is staggering. In fact, as of this writing, boasts an incredible 500 slots!

So don’t let the casino’s decision to have a mere 21 of these slots count 20% rather than 100% towards meeting the wagering requirements deter you. Unfortunately, the 21 slots on the excluded list also happen to include some with an exceptionally high return to player (RTP), but there are still hundreds more with a very high RTP that count the full 100%.

The complete list of slots that only count 20% is shown below. They carry the same 50x bonus wagering requirement as video poker and table games.

  • Bloodsuckers
  • Vampires vs. Werewolves
  • Starmania
  • Wolfpack Pays
  • Golden
  • Monster Wins
  • Jack and the Beanstalk
  • Jack Hammer 2
  • Medusa II
  • Secrets of Atlantis
  • Spin Sorceress
  • Steam Tower
  • Wild Dodo
  • Xing Guardian
  • Diamond Tower
  • Jack Hammer vs. Evil Dr. Wuten
  • King of Slots
  • Monopoly Big Event
  • Reel Rush
  • Samurai Princess
  • Serengeti Diamonds
Other Terms and Conditions

The casino is giving you up to seven days to clear the bonus. Your own deposited money will be used first for this purpose, followed by the bonus money.

As with any other bonus, while the bonus playthrough is still in progress, you will have to hold off on withdrawing not only the bonus itself, but also your deposit tied to the bonus plus any bonus-related winnings. However, any winnings from wagers made with your own cashable wallet can still be withdrawn. As soon as the bonus is fully cleared, assuming the allotted time has not yet expired, you will be able to withdraw the other money as well.

On the other hand, cancelling the bonus, attempting to withdraw unavailable funds prematurely, or failure to complete the wagering within seven days will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any winnings therefrom.

The Bottom Line: Is the Golden Nugget Independence Day Bonus Worth Your Time?

Naturally this bonus would be much better if it were a bigger percentage of your deposit. 20% is rather skimpy, but par for the course these days at NJ online casinos, and getting any kind of a bonus for your Independence Day play is a welcome surprise.

Assuming you take the maximum bonus of $44, the wagering requirement for clearing it with most slots is a very reasonable $440. Spread out over the seven days that the casino is giving you, that comes to less than $63 per day, which should be very feasible even for the smallest players. If you wish to clear the bonus instead with one of the excluded slots or other low house edge games like video poker or blackjack, keep in mind that the wagering requirements then zoom to $2,200 (an average of $314 per day). If that’s more play than you can comfortably handle, consider clearing your bonus partly with non-excluded slots, too, so your total wagering will be less.

Many of this casino’s bonuses and special offers are only accessible to high rollers, but this Independence Day bonus is something any player can take advantage of and should.

Happy Fourth of July!
