There are a variety of reasons why you may be asked to provide your Social Security number (SSN):
- SSNs are used to verify the identity of players for regulatory purposes.
- In addition, customers may be asked to complete an 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
- Casino players are required to provide their SSN for taxation purposes related to a reportable event.
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.
