Why am I asked to provide my Social Security number (SSN) to Golden Nugget Online Gaming? (US)

There are a variety of reasons why you may be asked to provide your Social Security number (SSN): 

For Casino

  • SSNs are used to verify the identity of players for regulatory purposes.
    • In addition, customers may be asked to complete IRS Forms W-9 or W-8BEN after a Big Win. This information will be used by Golden Nugget Online Gaming to prepare informational reporting tax forms (i.e. IRS Form W-2G).

For taxation purposes

What do you do with my information?

  • All of your information is encrypted and will only be used in compliance with the Privacy Notice, including, without limitation, identity verification, withdrawal processing, and tax information when necessary.
