All of the 2021 Election Day results are finally in, and some races, like that for NJ Governor, went right down to the wire. However, there’s another race that you can always count on to go down the wire. It’s the monthly race at Golden Nugget Online Casino, including the one that just got out of the starting gate a few days ago–the Golden Nugget November Race.

Did the Golden Nugget November Race start without you? No problem! Everyone’s A Winner!

At Golden Nugget, there’s no break between races. As soon as one monthly race ends, the next one begins. This year, ready or not, day 1 of the Golden Nugget November Race was the day after Halloween. If that little wrinkle made no difference to you great. But don’t get too complacent because thousands of late starters will be chasing you with a vengeance. As indeed they should because in this race, Everyone’s A Winner!

November marks the fourth time this year the Golden Nugget monthly race includes the Everyone’s A Winner feature. The other three times were in March, June, and September. However, this month, there’s even more cause to celebrate. November 2021 marks Golden Nugget Online Casino’s 8th anniversary!

Of course, Golden Nugget couldn’t have achieved this milestone and keep being one of the leading NJ gambling websites to boot in monthly revenue month after month without its many loyal slot and table game players. So, thanking you at this time by inviting every registered player to participate in the November Race and be guaranteed a share of the $500,000 prize pool is an especially fitting gesture of appreciation.

Look for Golden Nugget and other NJ online casinos to continue to offer many more over-the-top promotions all month long to celebrate the 8th successful year of NJ online casino gambling.

How the $500K November Race where everyone’s a winner works

Like all of the other Golden Nugget monthly races, the Golden Nugget November Race is open to all registered Golden Nugget online casino players. Participation in a previous Golden Nugget race is not a prerequisite.

In fact, there is no better time than a month like this where everybody who participates wins something for a new player to test the waters. Even if you don’t qualify for one of the bigger prizes, just for participating, you will still receive a secondary prize. No one walks away from the Golden Nugget November Race empty-handed.

Meanwhile, the name of the game, at least for those hoping to rank high on the leaderboard is still to play big every day or nearly every day. All monthly races, and the November Race is no exception, start at 12 a.m. on the first day of the month and end at 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the month. Every day counts!

But the beauty of this month’s race is that to win a prize for your efforts, you don’t have to be a big player who gives the casino heavy action every day. Even players with no shot of winning a prize in a monthly race otherwise will receive the same secondary prize that everyone gets. On the other hand, the top 150 players will win a bigger prize, too!

How to participate in the Golden Nugget November Race

If you’re a Golden Nugget Online Casino account holder in good standing, there is no reason not to compete in the November Race. Here’s what you need to do to get started ASAP if you haven’t already done so.

  • Log into your GoldenNuggetCasino.com account.
  • Click on Available Bonuses and opt-in to the November 2021 Everyone’s A Winner promotion.
  • Make a single deposit of $20 or more.
  • Start playing!

What can you win in the Golden Nugget November Race?

So far, I mentioned two prizes: one of the major prizes reserved for the top 150 players on the leaderboard and a smaller secondary prize that everyone will get. Both of these prizes will be awarded shortly after the race concludes at the end of the month.

However, there’s also a third prize up for grabs–the Mid-Month Fuel Up. The top 2,000 players on the leaderboard at that point in the race will win 50 Free Spins on their choice of certain designated slot games.

How many prizes will you win this month–one, two, or all three? There’s only one way to find out!

How to earn leaderboard points in the November Race

As you can see from the following table, you can earn leaderboard points not only based on your play in the casino all month long, but also with your deposits. In fact, the two fastest ways to earn points are with single day deposits of $100 or more and $50 to $99.  The fastest way to earn points from your casino play is with slots. Slot play earns leaderboard points 5x as fast as table games. Unfortunately, sports bets don’t count at all towards earning leaderboard points.

Player Activity

Leaderboard Points Awarded

Wager $100 on slot games


Wager $100 on video poker, blackjack, roulette, or other table games


Each day you deposit $50-$99


Each day you deposit $100 or more


As mentioned, you certainly don’t have to be a big player to win this month’s secondary prize. All you have to do is deposit at least $20 to get started and thereafter, anytime during the course of the month, earn at least 50 leaderboard points. That should be a piece of cake for virtually anybody.

However, in order to rank high enough on the leaderboard to win the Mid-Month Fuel Up prize and/or a major end-of-the-month prize, this month works like any other month. You will have to put your pedal to the medal in both your deposits and wagers all month long.

Mid-Month Fuel Up for the top 2,000 players

Even though everyone participating in the Golden Nugget November Race is guaranteed to collect at least the secondary prize, the need to wait all month to get it can be frustrating. However, the wait might be even more frustrating for those players who are in contention for one of the bigger prizes but won’t know for sure if they qualify until the end of the month.

That’s why Golden Nugget Online Casino came up with the idea for a Mid-Month Fuel Up. This gives the top 2,000 players at the time to be rewarded for their performance so far. Keep in mind, however, that being awarded a prize in the mid-month Fuel Up does not guarantee winning a top prize at the end of the month. Conversely, not winning a mid-month prize does not prevent you from winning one at the end of the month.

The precise day when Golden Nugget awards the mid-month prizes varies, but for the November Race it is Nov. 17. After claiming the prize from Available Bonuses, players have up to seven days to complete their 50 Free Spins on one or more designated qualifying games.

However, all winnings from the Free Spins come in the form of bonus money with the following additional wagering requirements:

  • Slots: 1x bonus
  • Video Poker, Roulette, Blackjack, or other table games: 4x bonus

You have up to seven days to complete the wagering.

Golden Nugget November Race end-of-the-month prizes

The total prize pool up for grabs at the end of the month will be at least $500,000, but it could be more.  For every day when at least one player wins $25,000 or more, Golden Nugget will add $1,000 to the prize pool, but for every day up when no player wins $25,000 or more, Golden Nugget will add $5,000. So, while the prize pool will start on day 1 at $400,000, by the end of the month, it is guaranteed to reach at least $500K, but it could be as much as $550K.

Since the exact size of the prize pool won’t be known until the end of the month, the following table shows the distribution of prizes for the top 150 players based on a final prize pool of $500K.

Distribution of Prizes for the Top 150 Players

Leaderboard Rank

Minimum Prize











































All of the above prizes are in the form of bonus money rather than immediately withdrawable cash. However, they are clearly worth playing for, as there is not one measly prize in the bunch. Even the player in 150th place will win $500 in bonus money, while the player in first place on the leaderboard will win $50,000 in bonus money.

Secondary prizes

Whatever bonus money still remains in the prize pool after the top 150 prizes are awarded will be used to pay out the secondary prizes. The secondary prize pool will be equally distributed among all qualifying participating players.

Wagering requirements to clear the end-of-the-month bonus money prizes

Golden Nugget will determine and distribute all of the end-of-the-month prizes for the November Race by 5 p.m. on Wed., Dec. 2. The 150 top players will receive two prizes. Everybody else (assuming they meet the very small minimum deposit and wagering requirements) will receive one prize.

All of these end-of-the-month bonus money prizes come with the same wagering requirements as the money won in the Free Spins in the middle of the month. You have up to seven days to clear the bonus money in full, which you will need to do before you can make any related withdrawals.

Considering all of the wagering you will have already done to qualify for these bonus money prizes, we recommend that you clear your bonus(es) entirely with slots. Since the wagering requirement is only 1x the bonus, your wagers will be at the casino’s expense, not your own. As always, your best bet is to select only slots with a 96 percent or higher RTP to maximize your chances of winning.

Golden Nugget $5 Million Dollar Race

I’ve saved what for some of you could be the best news of all for last.

All of the points you earn in the Golden Nugget 2021 Golden Nugget November Race count double toward your grand total of leaderboard points in the yearlong $5 Million Race!

If you’re a small to mid-range player, this added incentive won’t matter. But if you have a shot of finishing the year in the top 200, every extra edge you can get is important.

Even if you finish with a final leaderboard ranking of 151st to 200th place, you will still be looking at 12 monthly bonuses of $100 each (a total of $12,000 in bonus money prizes).

However, if you succeed in finishing in the top 3, the prizes that await you are even more spectacular:

  • 3rd place: A pair of luxury watches worth $55,000 or $48K in free bonus play
  • 2nd place: A coast-to-coast vacation worth $75,000 or $60K in free bonus play
  • 1st place: A Bentley valued at $200,000 or $120,000 in free bonus play

The Bottom Line: Is the Golden Nugget November Race worth your time?

Yes, and this is true for any size player. Even the smallest players should participate because even if you only deposit $20 and only earn 50 leaderboard points, the secondary prize is guaranteed. However, this month, Golden Nugget is offering two much bigger sets of prizes in addition. So, if you have the bankroll and the time, go for it. Get your hands on all three prizes!
