Summer Refresher Weekend at Golden Nugget


If you’re looking for a refreshing change this weekend from the usual same old bonuses, the Golden Nugget Online Casino Summer Refresher Weekend is calling your name! Much like when you order the drink of your choice at a bar or restaurant, instead of the same bonus being given to everyone simultaneously, take it or leave it, you can pick the bonus that suits your fancy.

Summer Refresher Weekend Bonus Choices

Let’s face it. Some online casino bonuses are great for high rollers, but out of reach for small players due to the high deposit and wagering requirements. Other bonuses are perfect for players on a budget looking to stretch their bankroll, but scoffed at by mid to high stakes players, who consider the amount as too “skimpy” to be worth their time.

Clearly, casino bonuses are not one size fits all, but this weekend is your “golden opportunity” to check out the innovative alternative that is serving up instead.  Here are your three options. The casino is ready to “take your order”–one to a customer–from the following:

  • Margarita: deposit $50 or more and get a $10 bonus


  • Mojito: deposit $100 or more and get a $25 bonus


  • Martini: deposit $250 or more and get a $75 bonus

How to Access the Summer Refresher Weekend Bonus

The promotional period for this offer starts today, Friday, July 28, and continues through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, July 30.

You can only claim one bonus offer, and regardless of how much you deposit during the promotional period, you can only get the bonus one time. In addition, once you make a choice you cannot undo it and choose a different bonus. So you need to choose carefully.

As soon as you decide which of the three bonuses is right for you and you are ready to make your deposit, these are the steps you need to follow:

  • Log into your account.
  • Select the offer of your choice from Available Bonuses and make a deposit of at least the required minimum amount.

If you are thinking of making more than the minimum deposit, that is your prerogative. However, your bonus will stay the same.

Summer Refresher Weekend Bonus Wagering Requirements

 As soon as you opt into the promotion, choose a bonus, and make the required deposit, the Summer Refresher Weekend bonus will be credited to your account. However, before this money, the deposit attached to the bonus, and any winnings therefrom become available for withdrawal, here are the wagering requirements you will need to meet:

            Slots: 10x bonus

            All Other Games: 50x bonus

The reason why video poker and table games command a higher bonus playthrough requirement of 50x is that, unlike slots, which count 100% towards clearing the bonus, these games only count 20%. Here are the exact wagering requirements for each of the three bonuses:

            $10 bonus – Slots: $100   Other Games: $500

            $25 bonus – Slots: $250   Other Games: $1,250

            $75 bonus – Slots: $750   Other Games: $3,750

Clearing the bonus is accomplished by wagering the player’s own deposited money first, then the bonus funds. Players are given 7 days to complete the wagering requirements.

Should You Take Advantage of Summer Refresher Weekend at Golden Nugget Online Casino?

If you’re a player, you should definitely take advantage of Summer Refresher Bonus Weekend. Being that weekends are the time when many online players tend to be the most active, this is the ideal part of the week to replenish your account. And when you can get a bonus from the casino to boot, so much the better!

The Bigger the Deposit, the Higher the Bonus Deposit Match Percentage

Granted, none of the bonuses come close to even a 50% deposit match, but we commend the casino for increasing the percentage based on the size of the deposit:

20% for deposits of $50-$99

25% for deposits of $100-$249

30% for deposits of $250 or more

Take Advantage of the 7 Days to Clear the Bonus

Another nice feature of this offer is that you have a full week to clear the bonus. So you don’t have to rush, especially if you decide not to play slots, but one of the lower house edge games like video poker or blackjack. Even so, both the $10 and $25 bonuses may be too small to justify the hefty 50x bonus wagering requirement for these games. Players selecting either of these bonuses should probably clear the bonus by playing slots or a combination of slots and another game.

Casino Should Not Have Named Bonuses After Alcoholic Drinks

 I’m all for having fun while gambling, so the last thing I want to do is be a party pooper. However, as an advocate of gambling responsibly, I feel the casino used very poor judgment in naming the bonuses after popular alcoholic drinks. While cute, I feel that these designations are inappropriate. They are not only unnecessary, since they have nothing to do with the offers at hand, but insensitive to the many players who have a drinking problem or who for medical reasons should not drink alcoholic beverages. If you are one of these players, don’t let the mention of three drinks in the description of the bonuses dissuade you from participating. But please don’t let it entice you to indulge in a way you may regret later.


Not all aspects of Summer Refresher Bonus Weekend at Golden Nugget Online Casino are great, but this promotion is a refreshing step in the right direction to offer bonuses that will appeal to and make sense for all levels of players.
