Live Dealer Two Year Anniversary Celebration at Golden Nugget

Written By Barbara Nathan on August 20, 2018

In just a few months, NJ online casino gambling will be starting its fifth successful year. Live Dealer games on the other hand, have been an option for a much shorter period of time. However, this week, Golden Nugget Online Casino, the first in New Jersey to introduce these games, is celebrating an important milestone of its own: its Live Dealer Two Year Anniversary!

Whether you’re already a regular at the Golden Nugget Live Dealer tables or a first time player, you’re invited to join the fun. The Live Dealer Two Year Anniversary celebration starts Monday, August 20 and continues through Thursday, August 23. The casino pulling out all the stops.

Special Live Dealer Two Year Anniversary Offers

Here are the special offers Golden Nugget Online Casino has rolled out in honor of this occasion.

  • Double Golden Points on all Live Dealer games you play during the four day promotion period
  • A 10% up to $50 cashback bonus to all players who opt in with a deposit of $20 or more and don’t win during the promotion period.

How to Participate in the Live Dealer Two Year Anniversary Promotion

This promotion is open to all registered players. Here is what you need to do to participate:

  • Log into your account during the August 20-23 promotion period.
  • Claim the Live Dealer Two Year Anniversary offer from Available Bonuses.
  • Make a deposit of $20 or more so you will be eligible for the cashback offer in case your luck doesn’t go your way.
  • Play your favorite Live Dealer games.

Some Important Points

This offer can only be claimed once and with a single deposit. You will earn double Golden Points on all of your Live Dealer play during the promotion period. In addition, if you incur a net loss from your play on these games, a bonus amounting to 10% of your losses up to a maximum bonus of $50 will be awarded to you.  In order for the bonus to be $50, you need to have a net loss amounting to $500 or more. Otherwise, with a smaller net loss, the bonus will be less, while those players who break even or win won’t get a bonus. Players who are eligible for a bonus can expect to receive it by 5 p.m. Friday, August 24.

Wagering Requirements for the Cashback Bonus

The cashback bonus awarded in this promotion to non-winning players comes with a small additional wagering requirement, which must be met before you will be permitted to withdraw either the bonus itself or any winnings resulting from it.  Any game can be used for this purpose. However, as with all other bonuses, different games contribute different percentages towards clearing the bonus, as indicated below.

  • Most slots: 1x bonus
  • Excluded slots* and all other games: 5x bonus

*Golden Nugget Online Casino is currently home to 511 slot games, far more than any other NJ online casino. So if you are a slot player, you have a tremendous number of games to choose from, and most of them still count 100% towards clearing the bonus. However, 21 slots only count 20%. Therefore, if you choose any of those games instead, the amount you have to wager increases to 5x the bonus, the same as for non-slot play.

The complete list of excluded slots can be found on the website. The probable reason why these particular slots come with a higher wagering requirement is their unusually high return to player (RTP). However, you will still find many other high return slots that count the full 100% and require a wager of only 1x the bonus.

Other Terms and Conditions

Players have up to seven days to complete the wagering requirements. Prior to then, any winnings from the player’s own cashable wallet are still withdrawable, but not the bonus or any bonus related winnings. Those remain temporarily locked into the account until the wagering requirements are met.

As with all other bonuses, opting out, any premature attempt to withdraw unavailable funds, or failure to complete the wagering in time will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any resulting winnings.

Why the Live Dealer Two Year Celebration Offer is a Good Deal

The feature that makes this promotion outstanding is not so much the cashback bonus, but the four consecutive days of Double Golden Points on every Live Dealer game.

Four days is an extended period of time, so those of you who play for high stakes and/or every day have an opportunity to rack up lots of extra points with no extra effort. On the other hand, even if you play for relatively low stakes, you can and should take advantage of this promotion since the required deposit is only $20.

Keep in mind that the Live Dealer games on are open only from 12 noon to 3 a.m., not 24/7. But that still gives you plenty of time to play.

As for the cashback bonus, the offer of 10% back on your net loss is hardly what I would call generous, but at least the wagering requirements are reasonable. In addition, you then get to keep not only the winnings from the bonus, but the bonus itself. This is a better deal than you get at two other NJ online casinos where you have the same 1x bonus wagering requirement but the casino takes the bonus back so you can only keep the winnings.  Even so, the best outcome by far in this promotion would be to win and not get the bonus.

The Bottom Line

Win or lose, the best part of the deal–the four days of Double Golden Points–are guaranteed! Therefore, this is a great opportunity to earn extra rewards, especially since they are on games that many of you already enjoy immensely. Of if you are new to the Live Dealer experience, now is the perfect time to try it. More than any other games you can play online,  Live Dealer games make you feel like you are playing at a table in a real casino. Playing online doesn’t get any better or more exciting than this.

Congratulations to on its Live Dealer Two Year Anniversary!
