Golden Nugget Brings Back $1 Million Golden Gridiron NFL Contest

The 2019 NFL campaign begins Thursday, Sept. 5 and Golden Nugget Atlantic City has brought back its annual $1 Million Golden Gridiron contest for the NFL season.

This year, the $1 Million Golden Gridiron game runs through Dec. 29. As always, it is offering members of Golden Nugget’s 24K Select club loyalty program the chance to win more than $250,000 in cash and free play.

Plus, once again, there’s a piece of $1 million up for grabs for anyone who can pick at least 204 games correctly throughout the season.

Make picks at the Fan Zone kiosks

24K Select members can enter each week by making picks for all scheduled Sunday and Monday NFL games. Golden Nugget puts $7,500 in cash up each week.

Picks can be made at Fan Zone kiosks in the Main Atrium at Golden Nugget Atlantic City. Players must make the picks between Tuesday at 12 p.m. and Sundays at 12 p.m. each week. The contest does not use point spreads.

Members may enter once a day. However, Golden Nugget only uses the best entry each week toward a player’s season-long totals. Each week, the player with the most wins earns $5,000 in cash. Second gets $1,500, and third earns $1,000.

All ties are settled by choosing a combined score in a selected game each week. If there is still a tie, the first entry submitted takes the prize.

Additional $7,500 in free play

Afterward, all the week’s entries are put in a draw for $7,500 in free play. The draw awards $50 in free play to 150 people.

Golden Nugget promises to post the names of all winning entries on its Golden Nugget Gridiron website after 3 p.m. on Tuesdays. Winners will also be also notified by email.

Players can claim all cash winnings at the Golden Nugget Atlantic City Casino Cage after 3 p.m. on Tuesdays. They have 14 days to claim each prize. Golden Nugget automatically loads free play to all players’ 24K Select cards by Wednesday each week. Winners have 14 days to use it.

Entry into Golden Nugget Atlantic City’s $1 Million Golden Gridiron is free. However, you must be a member of the 24K Select club to make picks.

Golden Gridiron $1 million grand prize

Golden Nugget puts up only one $1 million grand prize. All who pick at least 204 Sunday and Monday NFL games correctly this season will split it up. If no one does, Golden Nugget gets to keep its $1 million Grand Prize.

Golden Nugget plans to pay out the $1 million as a 40-year annuity. That’s 40 equal annual installments of $25,000.
