What are the differences between Golden Points and Crowns? (US)

Important Information

On April 3rd, 2024, the previous Golden Nugget Online Gaming experience was retired for New Jersey players and the new experience became available.  

As part of this update, the Golden Rewards Club has been retired, and Golden Points are no longer able to be accrued. Going forward, players can earn Crowns, and any previously earned Golden Points will be converted to Cash.

  • Crowns are a form of currency that can be used by Golden Nugget Online Gaming players after the update. Crowns have no cash value but can be redeemed for Casino Credits.

The key difference between Golden Points and Crowns is the ease with which Crowns can be earned through gameplay. While it is easier to earn Crowns, the conversion to Casino Credits is different from Golden Points.
