Golden Nugget - Legal website in the U.S.
Golden Nugget offers safe and secure payment methods and is 100% licensed and legal
In the U.S., the Golden Nugget is a brand that is well respected within the gambling industry. What people don't generally associate the Golden Nugget with is sports betting. While trying to make its mark in the U.S. as a viable sports betting alternative, the Golden Nugget Michigan sportsbook is up and running.
The website looks inviting with all the functionality a sports bettor could want. It's very easy to navigate from one page to another from the page bar at the top of the page. If gamblers want a little variety in their betting action, they can easily navigate from the sportsbook to Golden Nugget's online casino.
It's good to see that the Golden Nugget sportsbook is offering the variety of sports betting markets that Michigan sports bettors expect to see.
If Michigan bettors want to wager on major U.S. sports leagues and events, they can get access to major sports leagues like the MLB, NFL, Men's College BB, Women's College BB, the WNBA, NBA, and the NHL. Bettors can also wager on NASCAR events, the Super Bowl, March Madness, pro volleyball, MLS, and PGA Golf events.
At the international level, sports bettors will be able to wager on international leagues and events such as basketball and soccer leagues (Premier and Champions League soccer), the Canadian Football League (CFL), Aussie Rules football, Cricket, international rugby, motorsports, darts, boxing, MMA, and international golf tournaments. They can also wager on major international sports events like the Olympics and World Cup Soccer.
Over the years, American sports bettors have shown an appetite for making a wide range of wagers. That bodes well for the Golden Nugget sportsbook, which is currently offering betting options like straight bets (point spreads and money lines), parlays, prop bets, futures odds wagering, teasers, and in-game live-action betting.
A quick look at Golden Nugget's wagering limits shows they are well within industry standards.
Bonuses and Betting Promotions
After comparing Golden Nuggest's roster of bonus offers and betting promotions for sports bettors, this reviewer is a bit disappointed. With only 3 sports betting related offers on the board, it doesn't give sports bettors much of a chance to get extra value.
The welcome bonus of a risk-free bet of up to $250 does not compare favorably with the state's other bookmakers.
Banking and Customer Service
The list of banking options includes VISA, VIP Preferred, Play, MasterCard, PayPal, and online banking. Customer service is available by Live Chat, phone, or email.
Verdict: While the website looks inviting, the lack of bonuses could drive bettors elsewhere.
Welcome bonus offered by Golden Nugget
Simply place your bet of choice on any sportsbook market (at minimum odds -200) and Golden Nugget will match your stake with a Free Bet up to $250.
