There aren't too many longer-established names in the world of gambling than The Golden Nugget, which you may know as one of the oldest casinos in Las Vegas, having opened way back in August 1946. The world's largest golden nugget was even on display here between 1981 and 2013.
Today, however, the Golden Nugget name is attached to many other sites, including at Lake Charles, Atlantic City, Biloxi, and Laughlin. There is also now a mobile sports app for those wishing to gamble on sporting events while “on the go” - so is it worth your time as a bettor?
With Golden Nugget still in the process of developing its online sportsbook in the wake of an increasing number of states opting to legalize the gambling in which it specializes, it's best to download the app for yourself to discover the latest promotions on offer.
The situation is a fast-moving one, and we're confident that Golden Nugget will serve up many treats for both new and established gamblers using its platform, such as percentage bonuses, in line with its rivals in the burgeoning American sports betting industry.
You can gamble on all of the obvious sports - as well as a few non-obvious ones - via the Golden Nugget Las Vegas Sports app, such as:
Straight wagers, parlays, round robins, and teasers are all possible via the app, which is available for both Android and iOS devices. Both future wagering and in-game wagering are also provided, so you can look forward to a comprehensive gambling experience here.
It's important to note, however, that the Golden Nugget mobile app isn't completely detached from its brick-and-mortar counterpart. Firstly, those wishing to use the app need to be members of the brand's 24K Select Club in order to do so - and they can't become a member of the club without visiting a Golden Nugget casino in person.
Secondly, users of the Golden Nugget Las Vegas Sports app are only permitted to make wagers in the State of Nevada, with state law prohibiting any wagers from being made within the mobile app from outside Nevada's boundaries.
Anyone who has ever visited the main Golden Nugget desktop site will already be familiar with the basics of the brand's aesthetic, and these have been faithfully translated to the mobile app. A tasteful combination of black, white, and red predominates in an app that is also both informative and intuitive to use.
Those creating an account at Golden Nugget in New Jersey are automatically enrolled in the Golden Rewards Player's Club, which enables them to earn points for the real-money bets they place. These points can then, in turn, be redeemed for cash.
Again, though, this is a quickly evolving situation at a time when Golden Nugget is still establishing itself as an online sports betting option in multiple US states. We would therefore suggest that you check out the app for yourself to determine what VIP or loyalty scheme - if any - is available in your own locality when gambling with Golden Nugget.
As you would expect from such a long-established name in gambling, Golden Nugget has worked hard to provide its bettors with a good range of payment options. These include, for customers in New Jersey:
The accepted withdrawal methods for New Jersey bettors, meanwhile, include:
There is, though, one potentially big drawback on the payments front for users of the Las Vegas app; the requirement for all deposits to be made in person at the sportsbook's Las Vegas site.
A toll-free phone number is provided for anyone using the Las Vegas sports book app who could do with some help or guidance. Of course, another option is to simply turn up at or otherwise contact your closest Golden Nugget physical site, where there should be well-informed staff on hand to assist you with any of your queries or concerns.
Although - as of the time of this review being written - Golden Nugget was still in its early stages of setting up a fully-fledged online sports betting presence, we're definitely encouraged by what we've seen so far. It seems that the company is taking seriously the task of providing its bettors - many of whom will be very familiar with its land-based sports books - with a generously-featured, slick, and sophisticated experience.
