Golden Nugget Fired Up Leaderboard is giving away $500k in May

The temperatures are starting to climb in Michigan and New Jersey, meaning it’s time to check out the air conditioning and break the shorts out of storage. A special Golden Nugget Fired Up Leaderboard event is also raising the temperature this month.

Throughout all of May, the $500,000 May Race offers enhanced opportunities to earn points on the leaderboard and unique prizes. Thousands of online casino players across Michigan and New Jersey will benefit from taking on the heat.

While this leaderboard has been building all year, May is a unique opportunity to participate. Golden Nugget online casino players in both Michigan and New Jersey can compete throughout the month.

The special $500,000 May Race offers that amount in guaranteed prizes. The top prize is a $75,000 free play bonus. Just one player will receive that bonus. There will be 2,000 total winners, however. Prizes start at $10 in bonus play.

Players can earn points toward their standing on the leaderboard by wagering real money on Golden Nugget games. The casino awards five points per $100 bet on slot games and a solitary point on every $100 wagered on all other online casino games.

During the month, Golden Nugget will also offer a special “Mid-Month Fuel Up” opportunity. That provides even more incentive to take your bankroll for this month to Golden Nugget.

Fuel Up boosts leaderboard standings

Those players in a prize position before May 18 will receive a more immediate reward. On May 18, Golden Nugget will give the top 2,000 players on the leaderboard at that time some special perks.

Each player within that scope will receive 50 free spins on a featured slot game. In addition, Golden Nugget will offer a 100% match of deposits of $20 or more on that date. The deposit match has a cap of $25.

To qualify for the Mid-Month Fuel Up, players must record at least 50 leaderboard points. It will likely take more than that to get into the top 2,000 across both states, though. With these offerings, the competition is sure to heat up as well.
