Lucky Day Golden Nugget Giveaway


I wouldn’t have known it otherwise, but according to Golden Nugget Online Casino, today, Tuesday, May 21, is a nationally recognized day to celebrate your good fortune. Will it be a lucky day for you, too?

One way to find out is to take up on its latest offer. Play big because there are some big prizes waiting to be won in a special today only Lucky Day $5,000 Giveaway.

Come tomorrow, 300 players won’t have any trouble remembering that today, May 21, was their lucky day because all 300 will score a Bonus Money prize. And among them, one super lucky player will win the Grand Prize of $1,000!

How to participate in the $5,000 Lucky Day Golden Nugget Giveaway

This promotion is open to all registered Golden Nugget Online Casino players, and it’s for today, Tuesday, May 21 only. Here’s what you need to do, the sooner the better, to earn as many entries as possible.

  • Log into your account on Tuesday, May 21.
  • Claim the Lucky Day offer from Available Bonuses.
  • Start playing!

You will earn one entry for every $100 wagered during the promotion period. However, keep in mind that “weighted wagering applies.” The promotion period ends at 11:59 p.m. tonight.

If you’re lucky, you’ll win

Your best bet: Only bet what you can afford

On Wednesday, May 22, Golden Nugget will pick the 300 winners from all of the eligible entries. Presumably, this will be be via a random drawing since the website does not state otherwise. However, no limit is specified either on the number of entries any one player can have. Therefore, there will inevitably be some players who will use the unlimited number of entries to their advantage and wager enormous sums of money.

Lucky day or not, unless you are a huge bettor normally, you should refrain from this style of play. Don’t bet more than you can comfortably afford under any circumstances, and if it means forfeiting a shot at a Bonus Money prize, so be it.

Or maybe not. With 300 prizes to go around, maybe the luck of the draw will work in your favor. And if it’s your lucky day, any bonus money you receive might simply be the cherry on top of your sundae (or I should say Tuesday!). Your regular play alone might be enough to make you a big winner.

How much can you win?

The following table shows how the 300 Bonus Money prizes in the Golden Nugget Lucky Day Giveaway will be distributed.

Place Prize
1st Place $1,000 Bonus
2nd to 3rd $200 Bonus
4th to 66th $20 Bonus
67th to 300th $10 Bonus


As you can see, there are four possible prizes: $1,000, $200, $20, and $10. The preponderance of small ($20 and $10) bonuses is yet another reason why it is not a good idea to bet at a substantially higher level than usual just to earn additional entries for the drawing.

All winners will be notified by 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 22.

Bonus Money wagering requirements

All of the prizes in the Lucky Day Giveaway, including the $1,000 Grand Prize, are in the form of Bonus Money rather than cash. So that means you face additional wagering requirements.

Fortunately, in this case, the amount of additional wagering that you’ll have to do is minimal: just 1x the bonus. But that’s if and only if you stick to any of the 538 covered slots that count 100%. If you choose to clear the bonus instead with video poker, blackjack, or other table games, the wagering requirement will increase to 4x the bonus. And if you play any of the 21 “excluded slots,” (see the Golden Nugget website for the complete list), the wagering requirement jumps to 5x the bonus. Sports bets don’t count at all.

Additional terms and conditions

You have up to seven days to complete the wagering. As soon as you do, assuming it is within the allotted time period, both the Bonus Money itself and any additional winnings associated with it will become available for withdrawal. However, if you have additional funds in your cashable wallet unrelated to the bonus, you can access that money at any time, whether you have cleared the bonus yet or not.

On the other hand, opting out, attempting to withdraw the bonus or winnings from the bonus prematurely, or failure to clear the bonus on time will result in forfeiture of the entire bonus plus any winnings resulting from it.

Is today your lucky day?

The clock is ticking, so if you haven’t entered the Golden Nugget Lucky Day Giveaway yet and would like to, you should do so ASAP.
