Registering at Golden Nugget

Golden Nugget has multiple locations in the United States, and the one in Atlantic City is one of the most well known. It opened on July 19,1985 and hosts multiple restaurants, a marina and mixed martial arts and boxing matches at the casino. 

On May 23, 2011, Landry’s purchased the property for $38 million renaming it to its current name. Since December 2016, Golden Nugget’s online casino has been the highest revenue earner in New Jersey in every single month.

The Golden Nugget opened up its New Jersey online sportsbook in February 2019 which included a partnership with SBTech. The debut happened just in time for football season, and the first bet was made on location for the New York Giants to win the Super Bowl.

In this guide, we will take you through all of the necessary steps to begin betting at the Golden Nugget online sports betting site.

1) Step One: Sportsbook Registration

The first thing that you will need to do before betting online with Golden Nugget is to register an account. You can complete this on the Golden Nugget’s online sports betting site. Once you are on the site you can click on the red ‘Sign Up’ button in the top right corner of the screen. Clicking on this will begin the registration process.

Golden Nugget Registration

Throughout the registration process it is important that all of the information that you enter is both correct and up to date. Golden Nugget will verify all of this information after registration is completed. If something is not correct or not verifiable, Golden Nugget will not be able to approve your account and may ask for additional documents.

  • The registration is divided into two parts, with multiple sections in the first. The second part will simply prompt you to make a deposit into your new account. There will also be terms and conditions near the end that you will need to agree to or confirm. These will be in line with the laws and rules laid out by New Jersey, the US and Golden Nugget in relation to sports betting.

The account you create will be a general Golden Nugget account. This means that you can use this account not only for sports betting, but also for the casino and poker sections of the site. While playing on the site, you easily switch between these sections and begin playing with only a couple of clicks. 

2) Step Two: Complete Registration - Golden Nugget and New Jersey Terms and Conditions

The information that you will need to provide when going through the registration at Golden Nugget will coincide with other sportsbook sign ups in the state.

  • The terms and conditions laid out by Golden Nugget will have their own rules and unique information, so it is best to read through them so you can better understand how the site operates.

You will begin the registration process by filling in your login details. This includes your email address and a password that you will select for the site. The email address that you enter will also serve as a way for Golden Nugget to contact and alert you to details about your account, including its approval.

Your social security number will be the form of identification that Golden Nugget will use to verify the information you have entered. Your date of birth is also key information for the sportsbook.

Once you have entered in this information you can move onto the next section, which will include some personal details. After completing account details on the next page you willfinish the registration with the terms and conditions at the end of the registration. 

There are a couple of things that we will address in this section:

  1. Address

  2. Bonus codes

It is important to not that you do not need to live in the state with legal sports betting to create your account. With the use of geographic location information, you will be able to log in to your account and make bets whenever you are visiting or in the state. Use of geographic location services is due to federal regulations regarding sports betting,.

  • Although entering in a bonus code is optional, we believe that all players should take advantage of sportsbook bonuses. To get a bonus code, you can go to the promotions section on the site and select the relevant welcome bonus available. You can find them within the offer's description, which you can enter into this space to receive the promotion.

Filling in this section will bring up four unchecked boxes outlining various agreements and terms of conditions. The first box is the only optional one, and will give you the option to receive special offers and deals from Golden Nugget via text message.

The next two boxes will ask you to certify that both you are 21 years or older and that you will be the only one who accesses your account. Also included are Golden Nuggets terms and conditions and privacy policy., and a box asking you to confirm your information.

  • Key employees are persons employed either by casinos, sportsbooks or sports organizations in the state that have been prohibited from sports betting. For members of sports organizations such as players, coaches, referees, owners, etc., if you are an exception you will need to fill out a form. 

3) Step Three: Deposit into your account

After you have completed registration, you will immediately be taken to the cashier section on the site and prompted to make a deposit. Golden Nugget has many payment methods in general.
