Golden Nugget Casino deposit bonus and free spins

Once you’ve signed up and entered the Golden Nugget bonus code, open the “My Bonuses” window (via the drop-down account menu), and click on the welcome bonus graphic. If that doesn’t automatically transfer you to the cashier’s window, you can open the banking center via the account menu.

Enter the amount you’d like to add to your online wallet and select a banking method. To qualify for the deposit bonus, you’ll need to deposit at least $30.

Your 200 free spins on the online slot 88 Fortunes Megaways will be immediately available to claim within the game. You’ll need to use your free spins within seven days, which you can do simply by opening the game and starting spinning.

The deposit bonus money and any winnings from your free spins will also have wagering requirements that you’ll need to meet.

Wagering requirements

We’ll start with the requirement for the free spins. Any winnings you get from them will hit your account as bonus dollars. These bonus dollars require you to wager them once to convert them into withdrawable cash.

Additionally, the games you play will contribute different percentages of your wagers toward the requirements for both the free spins and the deposit bonus, as follows:

Table Games25%

If, for example, you win $10 in bonus funds from your free spins, you will have to wager that amount one time (1x) on slots before being able to withdraw any winnings. If you play blackjack instead, you will have to wager $40 to meet the requirement.

Once you’ve met the free spins requirement, you need to meet a 10x wagering requirement on the bonus money plus your deposit amount before the bonus money becomes cash. You’ll have 30 days from when you make your first deposit to meet the requirement. After 30 days, you will forfeit all remaining bonus dollars and any potential winnings.

Say, for example, you deposit $30. That will give you a total of $60 that you will need to wager 10x. If you stick to slots, you will need to wager $600 to clear the playthrough requirement.

Golden Nugget Casino no-deposit bonus in Michigan

When you sign up using the code PLAYBONUS, the $10 in bonus funds will appear in your bonus balance.

Wagering requirement

You can use the $10 to try out any casino games you like within 24 hours. However, you can’t use the bonus funds on Golden Nugget’s online sportsbook. The same goes for the rest of the casino bonus funds you might claim.

Unlike the deposit part of the welcome offer, you only have to wager the $10 bonus once, and there is no wagering requirement on any winnings.

How to use the Golden Nugget MI bonus code

To claim Golden Nugget Casino’s welcome bonus, you’ll first have to create an account. Here’s how to go about it:

  • Navigate to the Golden Nugget Casino online site in Michigan and select the sign-up button.
  • Fill in your email address and a password of your choice. These are your login credentials.
  • Input your first and last name, date of birth, gender and the last four digits of your Social Security number.
  • Fill in your home address and phone number, then enter a security question and answer.
  • Enter the code PLAYBONUS in all caps.
  • Check the boxes to indicate that you agree with the site’s terms and conditions. Click the “register details” button to finish up.
  • Agree to the disclaimer, then select the “proceed” button to verify your data.

The $10 no deposit bonus will then be available in your online wallet. You must wager the full amount on any casino games (sports wagers are not eligible) within 24 hours. Any winnings are yours to do with as you wish.

When that’s complete, if you wish to make a deposit and continue playing, you can claim the rest of the welcome bonus. Head to the “My Bonuses” section under the account menu and claim the promotion. Visit the cashier and set up the deposit method you’d like to use. You’ll need to add at least $30 to your balance to qualify for the bonus.

Once Golden Nugget has processed your deposit, the matching bonus money will appear in your online wallet. At the same time, Golden Nugget will credit the 200 free spins to your account.

Golden Rewards Club and other promotions at Golden Nugget online casino

Golden Nugget MI has a good selection of regular promotions once you’ve finished with the welcome bonuses. Just click the “Promotions” link to look over what’s available. To give you an idea of the kind of perks you might find, here are some recent promos:

  • NetEnt Huddle Up: Opt in and play NetEnt casino games for a chance to share in a $150,000 giveaway with a top prize of $50,000.
  • $500,000 Leaderboard: Take part in a monthly leaderboard contest and vie for your share of $500,000 with a $75,000 grand prize.

Keep track of your bonuses, wagering requirements, and more under “my bonuses” under the drop-down account menu.

You can also take part in the Golden Rewards Club loyalty program. Every $1 you wager on the site will earn points that help you move up the three tiers of the program and points that you can save and redeem for prizes.

You can find details about your Golden Rewards Club membership under your account menu, along with the number of Golden Points you’ve accrued. Select the big silver redeem button to see what kind of prizes you can earn.

A nice part of the Golden Rewards Club is that once you reach a program tier, you stay there for good, unless you earn enough points to move up another level. In other words, you won’t drop down to a lower tier if you wager less the next month. You earn points by playing games, at the following rates:

Roulette, Video Poker, Blackjack1$100
Deposit $50 to $9920-
Deposit $100 or more40-

New players enroll at the club level. Once you reach 7,500 points, you’ll advance to the VIP Rewards Club and qualify for more prizes and perks. VIP Elite Club membership is by invitation only.

At the basic level, you’ll receive special offers, birthday gifts, and access to around-the-clock customer support. You can also redeem points for cash.

Higher tier members will also qualify for additional perks such as expedited withdrawals, VIP support, weekly cash-back offers, luxury gifts, invitations to tournaments and events, and more.

What is the legal age to play online in Michigan?

You must be 21 or older to play online casino games in Michigan. The state has passed legislation to legalize online casino gambling, sports wagering, and poker, and sites began to launch in January of 2021.

Note that you also must be within Michigan to wager real money online. You can sign up for a new account, check your account information, and deposit money from anywhere, but you can’t gamble on a Michigan-licensed casino from outside the state.

Golden Nugget will use geolocation software to monitor your location. The app will automatically have the tracking software, but you’ll need to download and install a geolocation app, such as GeoComply, if you want to play casino games on a computer.

Golden Nugget is licensed in Michigan in partnership with the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, which owns both Ojibwa Casino Marquette and Ojibwa Casino Baraga. At this time, Golden Nugget does not operate a retail sportsbook at either casino.

Golden Nugget MI casino app rating 4.4/5

The Golden Nugget app for Michigan players offers pretty much the same games and promotions as the online casino’s website, as well as useful information such as responsible gambling tips and tools.

The app’s dark, colorful and flashy appearance mimics the ambience of a land-based casino for iOS and Android devices. You’ll find your account menu at the top of the screen. Click to open a new window that will display links to the game lobby, promotions, rewards program, banking, help center and sportsbook.

On the full-sized version of the site, you’ll also be able to navigate using tabs along the right side of the screen. These include responsible gambling, your account, personalized support, feedback, and links for Golden Nugget social media.

You’ll also see a link for “my feed.” Select it to set up the kind of scrolling information you’d like to see, including news, promotions, winners or your own activity.

Key features of the Golden Nugget Michigan app

People in Michigan have a variety of online casinos to choose from. We consider Golden Nugget to be in the top tier of options, but to help you decide yourself if it’s worth a try, here is how we rated it in some key categories:

  • Welcome bonus: 4.5/5. Golden Nugget’s promotion for new players offers something for a variety of tastes. Do you want to be able to try the games before depositing? Golden Nugget has a no deposit bonus. Do you plan to make a deposit? Golden Nugget will match it the first time you do so. Do you like online slots? Golden Nugget provides 200 free spins on 88 Fortunes with your first deposit.
  • Regular promotions: 4.5/5. Once you’re done with the three parts of your welcome bonus, check the Golden Nugget promotions page for the next available offer to maximize your wagering dollars. You might find leaderboard contests, free spins, bonus money giveaways or drawings.
  • Golden Rewards Club: 4/5. You’re in as soon as you sign up, and you won’t drop any levels if you step away from your account for a while. Once you reach one of the Golden Rewards Club’s three levels, that’s where you’ll stay, unless it’s possible to move up. You can redeem points for perks and bonuses that improve as you level up.
  • Wagering requirements: 4/5. Golden Nugget’s no deposit bonus and free spins each have a 1x wagering requirement. The 10x requirement on the deposit bonus is pretty good, as well, although the fact that it applies to your deposit plus the bonus makes it worse than a 15x requirement that applies just to the bonus funds.

How to deposit and cash out at Golden Nugget Michigan

Golden Nugget online casino offers a good selection of banking options to help you move money in and out of your online wallet safely and securely.

The minimum deposit can be as low as $10, although it could also be more depending on the method you choose. You can get started by visiting the cashier page. Each time you use a new banking method, you will need to click the “add new” link and go through a separate authorization process.

Follow the on-screen prompts to set up your account. Then, once you’ve done that, enter the amount you’d like to deposit, and click “confirm” to set your deposit in motion.

Whatever deposit method you use, it will become your standard withdrawal method, as well. Most withdrawal methods are only available after you’ve set up and verified the account via a deposit. Not all banking options will work for withdrawals, however. Here is how you can deposit at Golden Nugget Casino:

As soon as your money transfers to your Play+ card, you can withdraw it from participating ATMs or use it anywhere that you can a Discover card.

Other withdrawal time frames include up to 48 hours for PayPal and up to two business days for VIP Preferred. Check by mail may take up to three weeks to arrive at your door for withdrawals of $300 to $10,000 per transaction.

Responsible gambling in Michigan

Both Golden Nugget and the state of Michigan offer responsible gambling resources. To look over the alternatives at Golden Nugget Casino, just click the “responsible gaming” link in the page footer or in the account menu.

Golden Nugget provides a number of self-regulatory tools, such as limits you can set for a certain period of time for the amount you can deposit, the amount you can wager, the amount you can lose, and the amount of time you can spend wagering.

Patrons can also set self-exclusions of various time lengths. Golden Nugget will let you “cool off” by suspending your account for lengths of time ranging from 72 hours to a full month.

You can also seek advice and tips on how to set safe limits, understand gambling myths, and identify the potential signs and risks of problem gambling on the Michigan Gaming Control Board’s responsible gambling section covering compulsive and problem gambling or the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services problem gambling website. The MGCB also maintains a more permanent and widespread exclusion list you can apply to join.
