Once all of the information has been entered, a geolocation search will be run on the account to ensure that the user is in New Jersey.

Pros

It is hard to know where to begin when writing the positives for the Golden Nugget Sportsbook. It is one of the best options in the New Jersey market, and that begins with its interface. It has one of the nicest looking sites and apps and makes it very easy to use for both new users and experienced gamblers. The site has one of the most comprehensive menus of sports betting options in the entire country. Along with the major American sports, the Golden Nugget Sportsbook offers betting options on cricket, cycling, darts, and many other sports with a total of over 15 options. They also have in-game live betting, which is a major bonus for a lot of people. In-game live betting is one of the biggest betting trends in America, so it should be almost a requirement that a site has it when choosing where to bet. Along with its loyalty rewards program and risk-free first bet, the Golden Nugget Sportsbook offers constant promotions on its site. One of the most popular promotions it has is its “Golden Lines” promotion in which users will get odds boosts on select sporting events and futures bets. Sometimes these will be tied to props and sometimes they will be on game lines. As one of the most respected sportsbooks in the country, the Golden Nugget Sportsbook has very fair odds that are in line with most other online sportsbooks. This can put a user’s mind at ease that they are not being cheated when placing wagers. The Golden Nugget Sportsbook also has one of the widest varieties of deposit and withdrawal methods of any online sportsbook in New Jersey.

Cons

One of the few cons for the Golden Nugget Sportsbook is that its loyalty program can be a little tricky to ever get rewarded from. It seems like it has been basically designed for experienced bettors that are going to be placing a lot of wagers. The one Golden Nugget point for every $100 wagered is relatively high compared to other online sportsbooks. There are also some reviews that mention that the desktop version of the site can be a little bit cluttered. Overall, though, the layout is fantastic on the site and a simple minimization of the news feed should clear up that clutter.

How To Place A Bet

In order to place a bet, the bettor must determine what they want to gamble on. If the bettor decides to place a bet on the Boston Bruins moneyline against the New York Islanders, they simply have to click the moneyline option for that game. Once clicked, the bet will appear on the betslip on the right side of the page. The betslip can hold multiple bets, so a player can choose up to 10 different betting options and place money on them individually or in a parlay, round robin, or teaser bet. Once the bets are placed, the betslip is cleared and the player can place more wagers if they choose to.
