The Winner’s Circle At Golden Nugget NJ Is The Place To Be In May

Posted By Daniel Smyth on May 8, 2018

With the sun starting to shine and summer approaching, Dec. 31 seems like a lifetime away. Just as the festive season is a mere twinkle on the horizon, so too is the conclusion of Golden Nugget NJ’s yearlong Bentley giveaway.

Fortunately, if you can’t wait until the end of 2018 to win that prize, Golden Nugget online casino is inviting you into its Winner’s Circle this month.

Part of its annual commitment to giving you more, May’s cash race has at least $27,000 in bonus prizes up for grabs. Now, the interesting thing about this month’s promo is that the prize pool is determined by your results. When the action got underway May 1, Golden Nugget’s bonus team added $27,000 to the pot. However, since then, the bonus cash on offer has increased.

The winner’s circle that keeps on expanding

As per the rules of the Winner’s Circle, $1,000 is added to the prize pool each day the biggest overall winner banks less than $10,000. In other words, if the top winner on Golden Nugget NJ banks $9,999 in a single day, $1,000 goes into the pot. Should anyone bank more than $10,000, the bonus gods will throw an extra $200 into the mix.

Basically, money is put in the pot each day, but just how much depends on every active player’s results. Once the end of the month rolls around, the cash in the middle will be divided between the top performing players.

OK, but what if I don’t think I’ll be able to collect enough points to win some cash? That may be the case, but don’t count yourself out just yet. At the time of writing, the community pot was up to $28,000 and 674 players were entitled to a slice of it. Yes, the player with the most points will get $5,000 in bonus cash while those at the bottom will get $2, but that’s the game.

Pay, play and earn points at Golden Nugget NJ

What’s more, anything you win should be seen as a freebie. Even if you only collect the smallest prize, it’s money you didn’t have to do anything extra for. What we mean by this is that you only have to log in to your Golden Nugget account, “opt-in” and play. Sure, you could up your volume during the promotional period, but you don’t have to.

As you can see from the list below, it’s possible to earn Golden Points in a variety of 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

Based on the above information, it’s clear that any real money player can earn some points. This is the real reason why we love this giveaway.

Even though you stand a better chance of taking home the lion’s share of the prize pool if you’re a high roller, you can still get a slice of the pie as a novice. For example, if you were planning to deposit $500 this month, you could split it into five and earn 200 points. Similarly, if you decide to play slots instead of table games this month, you could improve your earn rate by 5X.

You don’t need to be a big dog to win big

Again, you may not be active enough to challenge the big dogs. However, you can be active enough to get something back. Now, if you are fortunate enough to earn a place inside the Winner’s Circle by the close of play on May 31, you will have to stay active.

Any bonus credits you collect will be subject to a 1X playthrough. What does that mean? Simple: You have to bet the same amount you receive in order to meet the bonus wagering requirements. For instance, if you receive $10 in bonus cash, you’d have to stake $10 of your own money.

Once you’ve done that, any free credits and associated winnings will be yours to keep. Again, in our opinion, the terms and conditions are set up for casual players. Because the outlay is relative to the reward, you’re not putting your bankroll in severe danger when you’re playing through your bonus.

All in all, the Winner’s Circle is the place to be this month. As long as you’re active, there’s a way to win. Of course, with the promotion already well underway, you need to get in and start betting today. For those of you that don’t have a Golden Nugget NJ account, follow our secure sign-up link now. As well as getting $20 free and a 100% deposit bonus, you’ll be able to opt-in to the Winner’s Circle giveaway and win.
