[toc]Industry leading Golden Nugget Casino announced a major milestone this week: It now supports over 200 games on mobile enabled devices.
In celebration of the historic milestone the NJ online casino site is inviting those who made the achievement possible — the players — to participate in a new promotion, that will allow them to pad their bonus wallets with $200 in extra funds.
So fire up those iPads and Samsungs, because on-the-go gaming has never more closely resembled the desktop gambling experience.
Introducing March Frenzy
From Friday, March 24 through Sunday, March 26, Golden Nugget Casino players that deposit at least $20 are eligible for a 20 percent up to $200 instant match bonus.
The bonus is accessible through the site’s revamped “My Bonuses” tab, which now displays active, available, and expired bonuses, all in one portable and readily accessible location.
Once opted in, players will have to wager the bonus amount only 10 times before it is converted to cash. Slots contribute to the wagering contribute at a 100 percent rate, while all other games contribute at 20 percent.
This works out to a 10 percent cashback rate on slots, and 2 percent cashback on blackjack, video poker, and table games — more than enough to grant players a temporary edge over the house on most games.
Worth noting, is that while the minimum deposit amount is $20, players will need to deposit $1,000 in order to reap the full monetary benefits of the promotion.
Is this promotion worth the time?
Overall, this is a very solid promotion brought down a notch by a minor drawback.
Namely, the match percentage amount is fairly low, meaning that players might have to deposit an amount that they’re uncomfortable with in order to take full advantage. A 50 percent match would have been more accessible.
Otherwise, the wagering requirements are low enough to grant players a solid chance of walking away a winner.
A good portion of Golden Nugget’s slot machines return 95 percent or more. At 10 percent cashback, players who gamble on a 95 percent return game are expected on average, to come out 5 percent ahead on their wagers.
Table game and video poker players will have to put in significantly more time to clear the bonus, but even the 2 percent cashback rate on these games is a good deal, as many of the site’s non-slot games boast house edges of less than 1 percent.
Why is Golden Nugget’s milestone significant?
Golden Nugget Casino has made a strong commitment to the New Jersey online casino market, evidenced through offers like these, and it’s overall willingness to remain aggressive.
The 200 mobile games milestone is significant because Golden Nugget is now just one of two state regulated online casinos to support at least that many mobile games. In fact, at 202 mobile titles it leads the NJ pack, just nipping out Resorts Casino, which features exactly 200 mobile games.
What’s truly remarkable, is that Golden Nugget Casino features more mobile games than most NJ online casinos support on their desktop clients. Even big names like Borgata Casino have barely cracked the 200 game benchmark on desktop.
Paired this with this week’s announcement that Golden Nugget Casino has extended the hours for its Live Dealer games, and there’s little denying that the NJ online casino site takes the desires of its loyal patrons very seriously.
