What are the W-2G reporting and withholding thresholds on my Golden Nugget Online Gaming Casino winnings? (US)

Winnings that meet certain state or federal thresholds must be reported by Golden Nugget Online Gaming to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for tax purposes. There may be tax withheld from your winnings, depending on how much you’ve won, and what game you were playing.

Important Information:

  • The tax reporting and withholding thresholds listed below are based on the US federal IRS requirements. Individual US states may have their own reporting and withholding rules which may apply to your winnings. The information provided on this page doesn’t constitute tax or legal advice and Golden Nugget Online Gaming advises its customers to consult with a professional when preparing their taxes.
  • If a player has multiple payouts meeting these criteria in the same day for the same game type, this activity will be aggregated into a single W-2G.
