St. Patrick’s Day is next Tuesday. But you don’t need to be Irish or wait until March 17 to have a little Irish luck and a lot of green fall your way. Not if Golden Nugget Online Casino is one of your favorite NJ gambling websites.
Golden Nugget Online Casino Luck of the Irish Weekend is already underway!
How lucky can you get?
Is this the lucky weekend you’ve been waiting for? One way to find out is to opt-in to the Golden Nugget Luck of the Irish $1,5000 Giveaway Weekend. The giveaway is open to all registered Golden Nugget Online Casino players.
You have the entire weekend starting Friday, March 13 until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, March 15 to earn entries for the random drawing taking place on Tuesday. 1,000 lucky players will all win prizes, and you could be one of them.
How to participate in the Luck of the Irish Giveaway at Golden Nugget Online Casino
If you’re a Golden Nugget Online Casino player and would like to participate in this promotion, here’s what you need to do to get started:
- Log into your GoldenNuggetCasino.com account–the sooner the better.
- Go to Available Bonuses and opt-in to the Luck of the Irish Giveaway.
- Start playing!
For every $100 wagered during the promotion period on games that count 100 percent, you will earn one entry into the drawing. You can also earn entries playing other online casino games. But keep in mind that weighted wagering applies, so the wagering requirements will be higher.
The Golden Nugget website does not elaborate, so if you have any questions, you should contact customer support.
By the way, sports bets don’t count towards earning entries for this drawing. But with so many scheduled games canceled, there would be slim pickings anyway.
What can you win in the Golden Nugget Online Casino Luck of the Irish Giveaway?
How fitting that the drawing will take place on St. Patrick’s Day itself. By 5 p.m., the results will be in, and all winners will be contacted and have the prize money credited to their accounts. Also, the parades will be over by then and the night of partying is still ahead, so it’s the perfect time to check if you’re a winner.
1,000 players will each get a piece of the $15,000 prize pool, with a top prize of $2,500. All prizes will be in the form of bonus money credited to the player’s account.
Here is how the prizes will be distributed.
- 1stplace winner will receive a $2,500 bonus.
- 2nd– 3rd place winners will each receive a $500 bonus.
- 4th– 10th place winners will each receive a $100 bonus.
- 11th– 25th place winners will each receive a $40 bonus.
- 26th– 70th place winners will each receive a $20 bonus.
- 71st– 1,000th place winners will each receive a $10 bonus.
Additional wagering requirements for the bonus money
If you’re one of the 1,000 lucky winners, you have up to seven days to clear your bonus. You can do so with any casino game you wish but not with sports bets. The wagering requirements are as follows:
- Most slots: 1x bonus
- Video poker, roulette, blackjack, and other table games: 4x bonus
- Excluded slots*: 5x bonus
*If you have been playing at Golden Nugget Online Casino for any length of time, you are probably familiar with the policy at this casino only not to count your play on all slots the same. If you should choose to clear a bonus with any of 21 designated slots, instead of your play contributing 100% like with most slots, it only contributes 20%.
So in this instance, the playthrough requirement to clear the bonus will be 5x the bonus instead of just 1x the bonus.
You will find the complete list of the 21 excluded slots on the Golden Nugget website. However, your best bet is to skip these slots whenever you have a bonus to clear. It is true that the excluded slots have a higher than average return to player (RTP). But so do hundreds of other online slots that you can play at Golden Nugget that count the full 100 percent.
Since most of you participating in the Golden Nugget Online Casino Luck of the Irish Giveaway will already be giving the casino a lot of play this weekend, I recommend keeping your wagering requirements to clear the bonus to a minimum. Stick to high-returning slots that count 100 percent. That way you only have to wager the bonus once, and it’s as risk-free bonus.
Other terms and conditions
Like all other bonuses at this casino, both the bonus money and any additional winnings from betting the bonus will remain temporarily locked into your account until you complete the wagering requirements. However, you can still withdraw other funds in your cashable wallet not related to the bonus.
As always, opting out, attempting to withdraw unavailable funds prematurely, or failure to complete the required wagering on time will result in forfeiture of the entire bonus and any associated winnings.
The bottom line–Is Golden Nugget Luck of the Irish Weekend worth your time?
As long as you plan to play at Golden Nugget Online Casino this weekend anyway, you should take advantage of this promotion.
I say this because 1,000 prizes are up for grabs, and with the luck of the draw, anything can happen.
However, keep in mind that the casino is not setting any limit on the number of entries per person. Therefore high rollers who can easily afford to bet thousands of dollars will do so to rack up as many entries as possible.
No giveaway is worth overextending your bankroll by betting more than you can afford. Furthermore, as wonderful as it would be to win one of the top prizes, the overwhelming majority of the prizes are only for $10, and the minimum amount you need to wager just to have one entry is $100.
So keep the above in mind, and bet with your head, not over it.
Even if you don’t win any prize in the drawing or have to settle for a $10 prize, this can still be your lucky weekend simply playing your favorite games. Maybe you’ll even win a big jackpot.
So opt-in to the Luck of the Irish Giveaway now and give it a try. Come Tuesday, even if you’re not wearing green, you could be looking at a big pile of green. What a spectacular Barney Blast that would be!
