Golden Nugget Online Casino Bonus Explosion


Golden Nugget Online Casino is not a site that settles for doing anything on a small scale. It has far more games than any other NJ gambling website and was also the first gambling site in New Jersey to offer live dealer games. So it should come as no surprise at all that many promotions are also over the top.

But this weekend this innovative online casino may have outdone even itself. Forget all the humdrum run-of-the-mill bonuses that promise more than they deliver because now it’s time to move over to the Big Leagues with Golden Nugget Online Casino Bonus Explosion Weekend!

What Makes Golden Nugget Online Casino Bonus Explosion Weekend Different

The countdown is on, and the clock is ticking. So if you’re a player and haven’t yet opted in, what are you waiting for? Bonus Explosion Weekend started Friday, August 17 and ends at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, August 19.

The description “Bonus Explosion” is no exaggeration either. All together, is giving away $25,000 in bonus money, with a top prize of $1,500!

However, for anyone tired of all those casino giveaways where one winner takes all or only a few people win anything and everyone else walks away with nothing, here’s more good news. There are hundreds of other prizes also waiting to be won. 1,000 players will share in the bounty!

Golden Nugget Bonus Explosion Weekend is going to revolutionize the way you think about NJ online casino bonuses!

How to be Part of Golden Nugget Online Casino Bonus Explosion Weekend

 If you would like to be part of this exciting giveaway, here is what you need to do:

  • Log into your account during the 8/17-19 promotion period.
  • Claim the offer from Available Bonuses.
  • Then play your favorite online casino games.

Every $100 wagered during the promotion period earns you one entry into the giveaway. Weighted wagering applies.

Presumably the maximum number of entries per player is unlimited, since there is no indication otherwise.

Distribution of Prizes

The following table shows how the various prizes will be distributed.


Place Prize
1st Place $1,500 Bonus
2nd to 3rd $500 Bonus
4th to 23rd $200 Bonus
24th to 51st $100 Bonus
52nd to 150th $50 Bonus
151st to 300th $25 Bonus
301st to 1,000th $10 Bonus


As you can see, the bonus you can win varies all the way from $10 to $1,500. Also, this promotion is not a drawing, but a race, meaning that the amount each player wins is based entirely on the amount wagered.

Therefore, unless you are a very big player, the best you can hope for is a relatively small bonus–most likely $10 or $25.

Obviously, many players will be disappointed that their bonus isn’t more, but under no circumstances, should you increase your wagering to the point where you are jeopardizing your bankroll or playing way out of your comfort zone. If betting big money is what you do ordinarily, go ahead and go into this race full guns blazing, but if not, use restraint and common sense and be content with any bonus that may be coming your way, even if it is only $10.

All winners will be contacted by 5 p.m. Tuesday, August 21.

Wagering Requirements for the Bonus Prizes

All bonus money won in this promotion is subject to the following wagering requirements:

  • Most slots: 1x bonus
  • Excluded slots* and all other games: 5x bonus

*As of this writing, Golden Nugget Online Casino has 511 slot games–far more than any other casino–and with the exception of 21 designated “excluded slots,” you can play any slot game you wish and it will count 100% towards clearing the bonus. However, if you select any of the excluded slots instead, because they only count 20%, the wagering requirements become the same as for non-slot play.

Unfortunately, the excluded slots include some of the best slot games in the house. However, you will find many other high return slots that still count the full 100%. See the website for the complete list of excluded slots.

Other Terms and Conditions

Players have seven days from the time they receive their bonus to complete the wagering. While the bonus playthrough is still in progress, both the bonus money itself and any winnings therefrom will remain locked into the player’s account and unavailable for withdrawal. However, you will have full access to this money (or whatever is left of it) as soon as the necessary wagering is completed. On the other hand, any winnings from bets made with the player’s own cashable wallet can be withdrawn anytime.

Keep in mind that opting out, attempting to withdraw unavailable funds prematurely, or failure to clear the bonus within the seven day time frame allotted to you will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any resulting winnings.


Like many other promotions at Golden Nugget Online Casino, this one is heavily skewed in favor of the biggest bettors. However, with 1,000 prizes being given away, there is still plenty of opportunity for smaller size players to grab their share of this weekend’s Cash Explosion, too.
