Ten Grand Golden Nugget Giveaway


Father’s Day Weekend is here. So for those of you still scrambling for a gift, it’s the eleventh hour. Not to worry, though, if you enter the Ten Grand Golden Nugget Giveaway!

200 people will win prizes, the smallest of which is $20 bonus dollars. Or you could win $50, $100, $200, or $500 bonus dollars, or even a $1,500 Landry’s Gift Card!. The top prize can be exchanged, if you prefer, for a $1,200 bonus.

How to Enter This Weekend’s Ten Grand Golden Nugget Giveaway

The Ten Grand Giveaway promotion at GoldenNuggetCasino.com began Friday, June 16 and continues through Sunday, June 18. As long as you make a deposit of at least $20 during that time period, you are automatically entered into the drawing. However, you can earn more entries if you make a larger deposit. For each additional $100 deposit during the promotional period, you earn one additional entry.

 Here are the steps you need to follow:

  • Log into your GoldenNuggetCasino.com account anytime during the June 16-18, 2017 weekend.
  • Select the “Happy Father’s Day” promotion from the Available Bonuses.
  • Make a deposit of $20 or more.

Only deposit what you can afford. However, keep in mind that many players will be making large deposits in order to rack up extra entries. The good news is that you don’t have to wager any part of your deposit prior to the drawing–unless you want to–and once the drawing is over, if you want to withdraw any or all of your deposit, you can.

The only stipulation is that if you’re a winner in the drawing, you will have to wait until you have met the modest wagering requirement of 1x the bonus (or 5x the bonus for video poker or table games). But if you don’t win a bonus, you can withdraw the deposit immediately.

What You Can Win

You will have to wait until Monday, June 19 to find out if you have won bonus money. That is when the drawing will take place, and by 5 p.m. that day, winning players should see the bonus funds in their account.

A grand total of $10,000 in prizes will be given away, which is a lot for one drawing. And even more impressive is the fact that 200 people will get to share this prize pool! The distribution of the 200 prizes is shown below.

Position Prize
1st Place A $1,500 Landrys Giftcard (can be exchanged for a $1,200 bonus)
2nd to 3rd A $500 bonus
4th to 11th A $200 bonus
12th to 20th A $100 bonus
21st to 67th A $50 bonus
68th to 200th A $20 bonus

Wagering Requirements

The bonus comes with a very modest wagering requirement, or more precisely, a minuscule requirement of just 1x the bonus if you play slots. However, if you choose to play any other game, because the percentage contribution is only 20%, the playthrough increases to 5x the bonus. That is still more than reasonable compared to the wagering requirements many other NJ online casino bonuses impose.

The information in the Terms and Conditions does not specify the length of time you have to meet the wagering requirements. Presumably, you will be informed at the time the bonus is awarded, but if not, check with Customer Service right away. This is important information because it would be a shame to lose out on the bonus simply because of taking too long to complete the necessary wagering.

As soon as the wagering requirements have been met, you are free to withdraw the bonus, qualifying deposit tied to the bonus, and any bonus-related winnings.

Is the Golden Nugget Online Casino Ten Grand Giveaway a Good Promotion?

Too bad the drawing is scheduled for the day after Father’s Day, rather than the day before. Therefore, if you’re lucky enough to win a nice surprise for your dad or other person near and dear to you, your gift will be a day late. But it’s hard to imagine that the recipient wouldn’t be thrilled, anyway. In fact, even if you don’t win, you should let him know you tried. Above all else, it’s the thought that counts.

The timing of the promotion notwithstanding, this is an outstanding offer. NJ online casinos are known for being generous in their bonus offers, not only for new players, but also for existing players. However, the Ten Grand Giveaway at Golden Nugget Online Casino goes way above and beyond, even for a NJ gambling site. Besides, with 200 winners, your chances of being chosen for a prize are very good.

The Number of Entries Per Person Should be Capped–Small Players Beware

While it is fair to award those players who can afford large deposits with more entries, unfortunately, there does not appear to be any cap on either the amount of the deposit or number of entries. So what’s to prevent a player from depositing thousands of dollars simply to rack up a massive number of entries? Probably nothing, but I still say only deposit what you can afford.

You don’t have to wager your deposit to earn entries into the drawing, and that’s a good thing. But let’s be real here. What is the likelihood of depositing a large sum of money and not giving into the temptation to wager it? The larger the deposit, the harder it will be to just leave it there all weekend without playing.

Furthermore, if you win bonus money in the drawing, you will need your deposit, or at least part of it, to complete the wagering requirements. That’s because deposited funds are wagered first, prior to the bonus money, for the purpose of clearing the bonus.


Despite the above limitations, I still think this is one of the better NJ online casino bonuses being offered. What makes this particular promotion a standout is not only your very good chance to win, and even win big, but the very reasonable wagering requirements. It is not unusual for the playthrough requirements on low house advantage games like video poker and blackjack to be as much as 50x the bonus. So the opportunity to clear your bonus playing the amount of the bonus just 5x on these games is much too good for any player who cares about his or her bankroll to pass up.
