Wagering Requirements for the Bonus Money
All prizes in this promotion are in the form of bonus money credited to the player’s account. So before you will be able to withdraw any of this money or any additional winnings therefrom, you will need to meet the casino’s wagering requirements, which are as follows:
- Most slot games: 1x bonus
- Excluded slots* and all other games: 5x bonus
*Golden Nugget offers more slots than any other NJ online casino–well over 500 with the number continually growing–so even without the “excluded” slots, you have a tremendous number of choices. Furthermore, all of these slots count 100% towards clearing the bonus, so you simply need to wager the bonus once and you’re home free.
However, if you decide instead to play any of the 21 designated excluded slots, because, those games only count 20%, the wagering requirement jumps to 5x the bonus–the same as for games other than slots. It’s still reasonable, but if you are going to wager the bonus 5x rather than just 1x, you might as well do it on a game like blackjack or video poker, which if played correctly has a lower house edge than even the best slots.
See the Golden Nugget website for the complete list of excluded slots. By the way, the likely reason for the increased wagering requirement on these slots is their very high return to player (RTP). However, your best bet is to hold off playing them until you such time as you don’t have a bonus to clear. Instead, if you want to clear the bonus with slots, choose a high paying slot that does not require extra play.
Additional Terms and Conditions
You have up to seven days to clear the bonus, so no need to rush. But keep in mind that during the time the required wagering is still in progress, both the bonus itself and any additional winnings resulting from it will be temporarily locked into your account. However, as soon as the wagering is completed, you will be free to withdraw all of this money (or what’s left of it). Of course this assumes the allotted seven days have not yet expired. Meanwhile, winnings from other bets made with your own cashable wallet are withdrawable at any time.
As with all GoldenNuggetCasino.com bonuses, opting out, attempting to withdraw unavailable funds prematurely, or failure to complete the wagering requirements within the allotted time frame will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any resulting winnings.
Why You Should Participate in This Promotion
As long as it’s convenient to play today, you should participate in this promotion, not only because the top 10 prizes are all big, but also because it’s a random drawing with 100 winners. That gives you a better chance than in most drawings, that are either one winner takes all or where there are only a handful of winners.
Unfortunately, 90 of the 100 prizes are only for a $10 bonus, which is hardly an amount to get excited about. Another aspect of this promotion that is not to my liking is the casino is not placing any cap on the number of entries, so high rollers who can afford to wager thousands of dollars, even within a very short span of time, have a big edge over smaller players.
On other hand, the Golden Nugget Halloween giveaway has some great features, too. One is that no deposit is necessary. So as long as you have enough funds in your account to proceed with your wagering, simply use those. Another great feature is that the wagering requirements of just 1-5 times the bonus are extremely reasonable.
Under no circumstances should you wager more than you can afford just to amass more entries. Remember that this is a random drawing, where anything can happen. Also, with the preponderance of prizes only being $10, it is clearly not worth the risk of overbetting your bankroll.
If you get lucky and win one of the top prizes, fantastic. But even if you don’t, as long as you bet sensibly, it’s still a fun offer.
