Stay On Property, Get the Golden Badge!
Golden Nugget is the absolute the crown jewel property of downtown, and it will be the headquarters of all the action every single day.
Our players patronizing the property is just as important for BPO as it is at any of the local venues hosting poker every night. The more people that stay on site, the more fun we all have, and the more excited the property will be to host our group every year. This in the long term allows us to utilize more of what Golden Nugget can offer, by continuing to create better experiences for everyone and negotiate the lowest possible hotel rates with them.
With that in mind, there will also be significantly MORE benefits for those that book a room using the booking link and/or using our code "GSBPO19" through our Golden Badge Program.
Players staying on property will get to:
Rooms rates are great but they are limited so please be sure to book as soon as possible. If you win a package through us in a weekly qualifier, you can always cancel the reservation or have us move over the reservation to our account.
