The Golden Race is one of the more popular Golden Nugget online casino promotions. When the top prize is a Bentley Bentayga, it’s easy to understand why.

Well, on Wednesday, Golden Nugget announced that an NJ online casino player raced to the top of the 2021 leaderboard. And by doing so, won the largest prize package since the commencement of the annual race promo.

Obviously, the winner, whose name wasn’t disclosed, is pretty excited about being the new owner of a Bentley Bentayga.

“…The Golden Nugget Online Casino is second to none! Best bonuses and service in the industry. Loyal players get huge bonuses and rewards throughout the entire year. I’ve played the rest and by far the is the best! Can you say Bentley baby!”

What the Golden Nugget Golden Race promo is all about

When playing slots and table games on NJ online casino apps, promos are a big draw for new and existing customers. The Golden Race is one of the stronger ones out there.

Basically, the more Golden Nugget gamblers play, the more leaderboard points are earned. Per $100 wagered, players earn five points on slots and one point on other casino games.

Here is the leaderboard point contribution breakdown:

  • January-June: 100%
  • July-September: 200%
  • October-December: 300%

The stakes are even higher for 2022 as the $10 million Golden Race is underway. The grand prize is a Rolls Royce Cullinan. However, Golden Nugget online casino customers who opt-in also have a chance of winning:

  • Luxury jewelry package
  • Wild watercraft adventure
  • Top-shelf shopping spree
  • High-roller Vegas vacation

Samir Banerjee,  director of marketing of the Golden Nugget Online Gaming said the Golden Race “has been our most popular promotion to date and I am thrilled to hear that one of our loyal online casino patrons has become an owner of a Bentley Bentayga.”

Golden Nugget Online Casino enjoyed Strong 2022

When talking about NJ online casino revenue, Golden Nugget is one of the top-performing operators. The state Division of Gaming Enforcement released December results last week, and Golden Nugget Online Gaming finished No. 2 with a tad over $36 million.

Keep in mind the total is a combination of six different brands. However, it’s PlayNJ’s understanding that the Golden Nugget brand is responsible for a large percentage of the result.

In slot titles alone, Golden Nugget online gamblers currently have more than 950 games to choose from.

Plus, there is a live dealer studio based inside of Golden Nugget Atlantic City.

Earlier this year, GNOG became the first NJ license holder to cross the $1-billion mark in all-time revenue.  They reported more than $378.6 million for 2021 alone.

Only Borgata, which includes BetMGM and its namesake app, fared better with over $412 million.

These results played a big part in the Garden State enjoying a record year for online gambling revenue. The new number to beat is $1.37 billion.

Call it a golden race minus the luxury Bentley or Rolls Royce.
