Why am I being asked to fill out an IRS Form W-9 for Golden Nugget Online Gaming? (US)

Golden Nugget players are required to fill out an IRS Form W-9 following a reportable win. The requirements for reporting and withholding depend on:

  • The taxable reporting criteria for the type of game.
  • The amount of winnings.
  • In some cases, the odds (ratio of the winnings to the wager).

Important Information

The information provided by the player on the W-9 (name, social security number, and address) is used by Golden Nugget Online Gaming to populate IRS Form W-2G.

In the event your legal name, Social Security Number (SSN), or home address has changed, please fill out an updated W-9.
