The Golden Nugget in Atlantic City is holding a two-day slots tournament this weekend with $35,000 in prizes. There will be three tournament sessions—Friday, June 8, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m, and on Saturday, June 9, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The more sessions in which players participate, the better their chances. A player’s two highest scores will be combined for the final score. The tournament has a cash or comp buy-in component, and participating players can get complete details at the registration table. Winners will be posted on Saturday, June 9 by 10 p.m.
In May, the Golden Nugget gave away nearly $1 million in cash, free slot play and real gold to celebrate the casino’s grand opening following a wholesale renovation of the casino-hotel.
During the month-long promotion, more than 300 winners shared in the haul that included more than $600,000 in cash and $210,000 in free slot play. But a few winners elected to take advantage of the spirit of the Golen Nugget’s new style and elected to take their winnings in gold that totaled 64 ounces, valued close to $110,000.
