They say there’s gold in them hills, but we found an even more lucrative mound of cash for you to climb this month and its over at Golden Nugget. With the end of the year closing in and festive cheer spreading through New Jersey’s online casino scene, Golden Nugget is giving away $125,000 over the coming weeks.

For those in the know, Golden Nugget NJ hosted a point race every month throughout 2017. Dispensing more than $300,000 in bonus cash, the promo is set to end on Dec. 31

That means a glittering finale full of dollar bills. Basically, there’s a pile of cash big enough to ski down this month, thanks to two separate offers: a $25,000 monthly giveaway and a $100,000 year-end bonus.

For anyone that’s just joined the party, the $25,000 monthly prize pool will be your main focus. Sure, you could win a slice of the year-end bonus, but you’ll have to out-bet players that have been active for months. However, regardless of what stage you’re joining the two races, the aim of the game is simple: collect as many points as possible.

If you rank in the top 300 players in December, you’ll win a bonus prize worth between $5 and $5,000. As an additional sweetener, one lucky winner will be chosen at random to win $250 in free play credits. If you finish in the top 25 annual performers, you could win up to $24,000 in bonus cash too.

Four Steps to a Festive Fiesta at Golden Nugget

So how do you get into the action? Simple, you follow these four steps between 12:00am ET on Dec. 1 and 11:59pm ET on Dec. 31:

Step 1: Opt-in by choosing the Race to the Holidays offer in the “Available Bonuses” section of your account page.

Step 2: Deposit at least $20.

Step 3: Collect Golden Points (see table below on how to earn points). Climb as high as you can on the monthly and annual leaderboards.

Step 4: Wait to see where you finish. Then,check to see if you’re a winner by Jan. 3 at 5:00pm ET.

How to Win Golden Nugget’s December Race

Now, the golden question in this Golden Nugget December promo is: how do I earn points? Well, if you deposit $20 and play real money games during the wagering period, you’ll earn points in the following ways:

  • $100 wagered on slots = 5 points
  • $100 wagered on table games, blackjack, roulette and video poker = 1 point
  • Each day you place a real money wager = 10 points
  • Each day you deposit between $50 and $99 = 20 points
  • Each day you deposit $100+ = 40 points

If you finish on the monthly or annual (see below) leaderboards, you’ll win a bundle of bonus cash. However, you will need to wager through once before requesting a withdrawal. In other words, if you won $500 in bonus cash, you’d have to wager $500 before you could withdraw your own money and any profit gleaned from your bonus. It’s also important to note that you’ll have seven days and the following contribution weightings will be in place:

Don’t Forget the $100,000 Annual Race

Before we tell you about another festive gift at Golden Nugget New Jersey this month, we can’t forget the annual race. If you’ve been grinding for months and you’re edging towards a ranking spot, now is the time to up the ante. Throughout December, you’ll earn triple points, which means you can sail up the leaderboard and take home one of the following prizes when the race ends on Dec.31 at 11:59pm ET:

  • 1st receives $24,000 ($2,000 monthly)
  • 2nd receives $12,000 ($1,000 monthly)
  • 3rd receives $9,000 ($750 monthly)
  • 4th receives $6,000 ($500 monthly)
  • 5th receives $4,200 ($350 monthly)
  • 6th to 10th receives $3,000 ($250 monthly)
  • 11th to 25th receives $1,500 ($125 monthly)
  • 5 lucky winners receive $1,500 ($125 monthly)

Spin the Festive Wheel of Fortune at Golden Nugget NJ

If all that wasn’t enough to get your head in a spin as we approach Christmas, Golden Nugget has one final present in its sack. In the spirit of Advent, the New Jersey casino site is giving you the chance to spin its Wheel of Holiday Fortune. Each player gets one spin per day and, once the wheel comes to a stop, you’ll receive the following: details of the latest daily promo as well as an exclusive bonus code.

Every code you get will need to be entered in the “Available Bonuses” section of your account page before its activated. Depending on the way you spin, you could receive anything from free bets to reload rewards. As you’d expect, all bonuses are subject to Golden Nugget’s standard terms and conditions. However, the reason this deal is great is because everyone can win something extra when they log in and spin the wheel between Dec. 4 at 12:00am ET and Dec. 25 at 11:59pm ET.
