Golden Nugget app other assets
Cash-out is a feature many online sportsbooks possesses. Through the feature, players can take an early payout or part of the stake depending on the dimension of a live game. A point to note, however, is that the payout will be less than what would have been originally awarded. Golden Nugget app does not offer the feature just yet.
We earlier reviewed the odds boost feature and at Golden Nugget, you will get this feature in two forms. Golden Lines are a combo of events that will be provided daily with the odds boosted. This means that if your combo hits, you will have the returns boosted by some value. Parlay boost will give you an option to have your selections and if you meet the requirements provided, your parlay will have the odds boosted reflecting good returns.
Bonuses and Offers
Golden Nugget has not shied away from offering the players with a good selection of high-value bonuses from the offers they have provided. On the option ‘Promos & Rewards’, you will find all the offers listed and you can opt into the one you meet the requirements. Among the standout offers are the welcome bonuses which are as follows;
A new customer on the platform will receive a risk-free bet of up to $100 when the first sports bet loses. If the first sports bet was $75 and it ended up losing, a risk-free bet of $75 will be awarded. Only a loss will be eligible for a risk-free bet
A new customer on the platform will receive a 100% matched up bonus up to $1,000 on the first deposit made. The deposit should be at least $30. This means a deposit of $400 will attract a $400 bonus. Remember to view the latest Golden Nugget bonus codes in case there is something to interest you.
A casino platform is another major highlight provided on the app. This section has been friendly tailored thanks to the coming together of different software providers such as NetEnt, Aristocrat, Bally, NextGen Gaming, and more. They have ensured that the games provided come in different themes and types. What’s more, the app allows you to sort any game you want by name, recommendation, rating, and maximum payout. 600+ games have been provided on the app which is an impressive number. This has included various Live Dealer games titles and other titles placed in different categories as follows;
- Slots (571)
- Table Games (29)
- Steppers (40)
- Video Poker (14)
- Live Dealer (13)
- Scratchers (12)
- Slingo (23)
- Jackpots (9)
- Bingo (11)
- Megaways (3)
The app version has received our thumbs up. Many aspects have been dealt with accordingly and the customers can have an easy time and a near-experience of what is available on the desktop. An impressive collection of games has been provided coupled up with several promotions, several features such as odds boost coupled up with good betting opportunities have also been offered, and generally, the app is user-friendly.
The only recommended additions would be features such as cash out and live streaming, platforms such as Poker, and all the games on the desktop version to be made available on the app.
