Players are already off to the races in the Golden Nugget’s $10 Million Wagering Race.
One of the latest Michigan online casino promotions pledges to give away monthly free-play bonus prizes this year, along with a slate of year-end prizes including the grand prize: a 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan.
The top 2,000 Golden Nugget Michigan online casino players will win $500K in free-bonus play for January. Lucky bettors hailing from New Jersey and Michigan also qualify for a monthly boost in points.
How to opt in to Golden Nugget’s $10 Million Wagering Race
Golen Nugget is awarding monthly prizes and year-end grand prizes based on accrued points. The more Golden Points you earn by making casino wagers, the higher you will place on the leader board.
Players have until 11:59 p.m. ET on Jan. 31 to earn points for January. Participants must opt-in every month at My Bonuses for that month’s points to count toward the year-long tally. No sportsbook wagers of any kind count toward point totals and no prizes may be used toward sports wagers.
Entering is easy:
- Players need a valid, active Golden Nugget account to opt-in
- Make a deposit of $20 or more
- Earn at least 50 Leaderboard Points from cash wagers or casino wager during the promo period
Player rankings get updated daily on the leaderboard that shows monthly and cumulative totals. Leaderboard point awards will double from July through September, and triple from October through December.
- A $100 wager on slot games earns 5 Leaderboard Points
- A $100 wager on table games such as blackjack, roulette and video poker earns 1 Leaderboard Point
The free-play bonus carries a 1x wagering requirement before you can withdraw. That’s pretty good for the industry, which sometimes forces players to play their winning “bonuses” many times before it converts to real money.
Michigan and New Jersey bettors qualify for boost
The top 2,000 bettors from Michigan and New Jersey who have already opted-in to the contest are eligible to win the Monthly Fuel Up 2022 promotion award of 50 free spins and a 100% deposit match up to $25.
Winners must claim free spins and bonuses via My Bonuses with a single deposit. After accepting the prize, players have seven days to use on eligible games. Free spins will get awarded by 5 p.m. each month of 2022 on: Jan. 12, Feb. 16, March 16, April 13, May 18, June 15, July 13, Aug. 17, Sept. 14, Oct. 12, Nov. 16 and Dec. 14.
January’s race boasts $75K top prize
Prizes and awards change each month. For January, 2,000 winners will win $500,000 in Free Play Bonus Awards. Folks who finish in the top 100 spots will win at least $1,000.
The lucky leader of the month snags the grand monthly prize of $75,000; second place wins $50,000 and third place earns $35,000. Folks who rank in the bottom 500 spots win $10 each.
Rolls Royce is grand prize for year-end finale
When the contest concludes just before midnight on Jan. 31, the top 250 leaders in cumulative point totals will earn prizes. Remember, players must opt-in each month in order for accrued points to count toward the year-end total.
Winners in the top 10 can choose to accept stated prizes or free-play bonuses awarded monthly in 2023. Eleventh place through 25th place winners earn awards distributed monthly in 2023.
- Grand prize is a 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan valued at $395K or $240,000 free-play bonus awarded in $20,000 monthly installments
- Second prize is a luxury jewelry package valued at $125K or $120,000 free-play bonus awarded in monthly installments of $10,000
- Third prize is a Wild Watercraft Adventure valued at $62K or $60,000 free-play bonus awarded in monthly installments of $5,000
