What are play-through requirements?

A Casino Bonus Funds playthrough requirement is the number of times a player or amount (in U.S. Dollars) of wagers a player needs to play through the funds in order to complete the promotion. In most cases, play through requirements apply to the Casino Bonus Funds amount. 

Upon completing the play through requirement, any winnings associated with the Casino Bonus Funds will be eligible for withdrawal as cash.

Frequently asked questions

What is a play-through period?

The play through requirements must be completed during the applicable Play Through Period. To avoid any confusion or doubt, the time frame is measured in hours starting from the time the Casino Bonus Funds are added to your account. For example, three (3) days is measured as 72 hours from the time the Casino Bonus Funds are added to your account while seven (7) days is measured as 168 hours from the time the Casino Bonus Funds are added to your account.

  • Play through periods will be defined in the terms and conditions of the promotional offer.

What are contribution rates?

All Casino Bonus Funds have a required number of times they need to be played through before the winnings can be withdrawn (i.e. 1x, 5x, or 10x). While a customer can wager on many Casino games available on Golden Nugget Online Gaming, not every game contributes towards the play through requirements at the same contribution percentage. Most games do contribute toward the play through requirement but can contribute differently based on what game is being played. Here are the current contribution rates:

Table with three rows categorizing gaming contributions. First row: 'Most Slots, Rocket, Keno, Virtual Sports' with a contribution of 100%, depicted with a hand holding cards and a money bag icon. Second row: 'Blackjack, Other Table Games, Live Dealer Games, Roulette, & Select Slots*' with a 20% contribution, similar icons follow. Third row: 'Craps, Video Poker, Baccarat, & Other Variety Games' with 0% contribution, and corresponding icons. Note: An asterisk indicates that some slots have different contribution rates. The table background is black with white and yellow text for high contrast.

  • *To find more information about Select Slots (and for a list of Select Slot games), please go to the What is a Casino Deposit Bonus page.
  • Important Note: This table of game categories and their respective contribution percentages is subject to change.
  • Important Note: Any games with a 0% contribution rate will not contribute toward the play through requirement for Casino Bonus Funds. Please be aware that any winnings earned from a 0% contribution rate game would be considered locked winnings until the play through requirement is met.

What happens if the requirements aren't met during the Play-through Period?

If the play through requirements are not met within the Play Through Period, any Casino Bonus Funds, and any winnings tied to the Casino Bonus funds, will expire and be forfeited

Please keep in mind that not meeting a play through requirement for a Casino Deposit Bonus will result in the loss of any wagered portion of the original deposit, lost winnings (funds won from placing wagers with the original deposit, wagered, and lost), any remaining Casino Bonus Funds, and any winnings tied to the forfeited Casino Deposit Bonus promotion.

What happens if I placed wagers before forfeiting my bonus?

At any point, you may decide to forfeit your Casino Bonus Funds or Casino Deposit Bonus and remove yourself from a promotion. 

Please keep in mind that forfeiting a Casino Deposit Bonus will result in the loss of any wagered portion of the original deposit, lost winnings (funds won from placing wagers with the original deposit, wagered, and lost), any remaining Casino Bonus Funds, and any winnings tied to the forfeited Casino Deposit Bonus promotion

  • If you placed a wager from your original deposit and received winnings tied to that wager, you would receive the winnings from that wager if you forfeited your Casino Deposit Bonus.

Can I remove myself from a Casino Deposit Bonus?
