Golden Nugget Double Your Deposit Bonus
Now that you know all about the 100% deposit match of up to $50 that Caesars Online Casino is offering, your weekend is about to get even more rewarding. Golden Nugget Online Casino has a similar offer. The casino is calling it Beach Party Weekend, but a much more fitting name, I think, would be Golden Nugget Double Your Deposit Weekend!
With this 100% match on your deposit of up to $50 at GoldenNuggetCasino.com on top of Caesars’ offer of the same, you won’t have much time for the beach. But if the bottom line is $100 extra for you–or maybe much more if you’re a big winner–who’s complaining? Take your smartphone with you to the beach and leave the partying for another time. Otherwise, your suntan can wait!
How the Golden Nugget Double Your Deposit Offer Works
When you read the details of this Golden Nugget double your deposit bonus, you will see that is almost identical to the Caesars Dollar for Dollar Bonus described in my last post on this website.
In fact, like the Caesars offer, the cap on this bonus is $50, too. And day 1 for making your deposit and getting your 100% match bonus at Golden Nugget Online Casino was also Friday, August 3. However, the Golden Nugget promotion period ends a day earlier. You only have until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, August 5, not Monday, August 6, to make your deposit and claim your bonus.
Any player with a GoldenNuggetCasino.com account can opt into this offer. Here are the steps you need to follow:
- Log into your GoldenNuggetCasino.com account anytime during the August 3-5 promotion period.
- Claim the offer from Available Bonuses.
- Make a deposit of $20 or more.
How Much Should You Deposit?
The casino will instantly match your deposit with the same size bonus up to $50. While in this case, $20 is the minimum deposit you can make, it is much better to deposit $50 so you can get the full $50 bonus that the casino is willing to give you.
On the other hand, unless your account is very short of money and you need to deposit more than $50 to wager in your customary manner, you will lose the prime benefit of this promotion–the dollar for dollar match on your deposit. Your bonus still won’t exceed $50.
This offer can only be claimed once and only with a single deposit.
Wagering Requirements for the Golden Nugget 100% Deposit Match Bonus
Before you will be permitted to withdraw either the bonus, your deposit tied to the bonus, or any resulting winnings, you will need to meet the casino’s wagering requirements. Frequent players will recognize that they are the same as for most other GoldenNuggetCasino.com bonuses.
- Most slots: 10x bonus
- Excluded slots* and all other games: 50x bonus
*If you want to clear the bonus with slots, the good news is that you not only have more than 500 slots to choose from; the overwhelming majority of these games count 100%. That means if you select any of these games, you only have to wager the bonus 10x (for a total of $500 on a $50 bonus) and the bonus will be fully cleared. However, if you choose to clear the bonus instead with any of the 21 excluded slots, the wagering requirement jumps to 50x the bonus–the same as for non-slot play. See the GoldenNuggetCasino.com website for the complete list of these 21 excluded slots.
Tips to Help You Select the Right Games
Unfortunately, some of the casino’s best slots are on the excluded list. However, the wagering requirement of 50x the bonus is too steep. You are better off finding one or more of the many high return non-excluded slots and only wagering 10x the bonus.
If you are going to be clearing your bonus with any games carrying a 50x wagering requirement, your best bet is blackjack, which if played correctly, has only about a .5% house edge, which is much lower than that of even the best slots. If you are working with a limited bankroll, though, rather than attempting to clear the bonus exclusively with blackjack, clearing the bonus partly with blackjack and partly with slots is a viable strategy. It will make the total amount of wagering more manageable.
Other Terms and Conditions
The casino is giving you up to a week to clear the bonus, the same amount of time that Caesars Online Casino is giving you to clear its bonus.
For the purpose of clearing the bonus, wagers are made first with the player’s own deposited money and then with the bonus money after that. During the whole time that the bonus playthrough is in progress, the bonus, the deposit tied to the bonus, and any resulting winnings are all temporarily locked into your account and unavailable for withdrawal. You can still withdraw winnings from other wagers made with your own cashable wallet, though.
As soon as the bonus is cleared, you will have access to the other money, too, or whatever is left of it. However, keep in mind that opting out of the bonus, attempting to withdraw unavailable funds prematurely, or failure to complete the required wagering within the allotted time frame will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any resulting winnings.
The Golden Nugget and Caesars Wagering Requirements Compared
By the way, comparing the wagering requirements for the Golden Nugget double your deposit bonus to those for the Caesars bonus, the Golden Nugget 10x bonus wagering requirement for most slots is identical to Caesars’ 5x bonus + deposit wagering requirement for slots.
Likewise, the 50x bonus wagering requirement for all other games at Golden Nugget is the same as the 25x bonus + deposit wagering requirement for all other games except video poker at Caesars. Video poker is the only game where you have a distinct advantage playing on CaesarsCasino.com. The wagering requirement to clear the bonus is only 10x the bonus + deposit (the same as 20x the bonus) vs. 50x the bonus at GoldenNuggetCasino.com.
Why this Weekend’s Golden Nugget Double Your Deposit Deal is a Great Offer
If you read the closing section of my post describing the nearly identical offer this weekend at Caesars Online Casino, you will see that all of these same great features apply here:
- Great bang for your buck because you are getting a full 100% match of your deposit.
- Up to a $50 bonus–large enough to be appreciated by most players, but also with deposit and wagering requirements that are within reach for most players’ budgets.
- A very reasonable period of up to a week to clear the bonus.
An offer that has all this going for it is simply too good to pass up. But getting two such offers from two different casinos the same weekend is super. If you have an account at both GoldenNuggetCasino.com and CaesarsCasino.com, don’t waste another minute. A $50 deposit at each casino is all it takes, and $100 in bonus money is waiting for you!
