Each month any Golden Nugget player who wants to can join the race
If you have been competing since the beginning of the year in the hope of being one of the 50 top players for the Golden Nugget year-end leaderboard, you already know that April marks leg 4 of this exciting race. All of the leaderboard points you earn in April will be added to those you earned from January through March to give you your grand total for the year so far.
Of course, after April, there are eight more months left to go before the finish line, which means at this stage, the race is still wide open. There are plenty of opportunities to keep racking up more points.
New participants are welcome, too
As for the rest of you who would love to experience the fun and excitement of the April race, it’s also not too late for you to opt-in for a chance to win. Participation in previous races this year is not required.
Missing the first three months would probably put you out of the running for one of the top prizes at the end of the year.
However, one great thing about the Golden Nugget races is that there’s a new race every month with its own set of prizes. There are also Weekly Missions with more prizes up for grabs. Simply enter today or whenever you’re ready, and you’re off to the races!
How to participate in the Golden Nugget April race
This month, Golden Nugget Online Casino has $60,000 in bonus money prizes up for grabs. The top 500 players on the leaderboard will each get a share. But the biggest share–$10,000–is reserved for the winner!
The April race started on April 1 and continues until 11:59 p.m. on April 30. If you wish to participate, here is what you need to do to get started.
- Log into your GoldenNuggetCasino.com account as soon as possible.
- Go to Available Bonuses and opt into the Golden Nugget April $ 60, 000 Heist
- Make a single deposit of $20 or more.
- Start playing!
In April, as in every other month, all of your real money wagering on GoldenNuggetCasino.com counts towards earning leaderboard points, but with different weightings based on the type of game. You will also earn leaderboard points each day you deposit $50 or more into your Golden Nugget online account.
The following table shows you at a glance how many points you will receive for different types and amounts of player activity.
Awarding of prizes
At the end of the month, the top 500 players on the leaderboard will all qualify for a prize. All prizes will be in the form of bonus money rather than immediately withdrawable cash. However, the wagering requirements to clear the bonus are minimal.
As you can see from the distribution of prizes shown below, the amounts range all the way from tiny ($5) to tremendous ($10,000 for first place). Unfortunately, half of the 500 prizewinners will have to settle for a token bonus of only $5.

Wagering requirements for the bonus
You can choose either a casino bonus or a sports bonus. However, you must pick one or the other. At this time, with all of the major sports canceled, you will probably prefer the casino bonus.
All of the prizes in the April race and other monthly races are called free play bonuses. That’s because if you clear the bonus, as recommended, with any of well over 600 slot games or with sports bets, you only have to wager the bonus 1x.
