Golden Nugget Online Casino will soon launch in Pennsylvania, awaiting approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to open for business in the Keystone State. When it does arrive, it’s likely to offer a variety of great games for PA bettors.

Despite its pending status, its parent company, Golden Nugget Online Gaming (GNOG), already has online casinos in several states, such as New Jersey. Here, it operates the brands of Golden Nugget, Betfair, SugarHouse, and BetAmerica.

When the PGCB does approve GNOG, we look forward to another established presence joining the landscape. The Golden Nugget brand brings decades of credibility, one of the largest game libraries, and 24/7 support to all players.

Keep reading below, as we detail some of the top games to expect when playing at Golden Nugget Casino PA.

Top games coming to Golden Nugget Casino PA

Golden Nugget Megaways

Inspired Gaming and GNOG teamed up to create a trademark slot found exclusively online at Golden Nugget.

Golden Nugget Megaways is a six-reel game with medium volatility and 117,649 ways to produce a winning result. The game includes gold symbols, along with features such as cascading wins and the VIP feature, which can award up to 25 free spins

The game also includes four mini slots within itself, allowing for increased bonuses and further added spins. Players can also utilize the gamble feature at the end of a spin to press any winnings.

Divine Fortune

With an ancient Greek theme, NextEnt Divine Fortune is a progressive jackpot slot with a remarkably high 96.6% RTP. Players may wager anywhere from 20 cents to $100 in New Jersey. 

The game has more bonus features than one can keep track of, including numerous respin options, a wild on wild feature, and opportunities to activate the jackpot bonus game.

Overall, Divine Fortune is an enjoyable game to play, with eye-pleasing visuals and sounds. It is a five-reel, 20-line game that has a max payout of $350,000, making it worth everyone’s time to check out.

Capital Gains

As the name suggests, Capital Gains gives players the opportunity to win major cash prizes in this bank-themed game.

Capital Gains has numerous trigger symbols that can engage a money charge bonus that includes free spins. If six trigger symbols land on the reels, then a player activates this bonus and has the chance at winning one of four jackpots.

The mini, minor, and major jackpots can be won throughout the money charge bonus, while the grand jackpot can be activated once locking 14 symbols. 

This game has a 95.96% RTP and is considered to have high volatility. As always, be sure to play responsibly and within your bankroll.

Golden Nugget American Roulette and Multi-Hand Blackjack

Just like at the casino, Golden Nugget American Roulette and Multi-Hand Blackjack are exclusive games that let players bet as little as 10 cents.

This is an easy-to-play version of the classic American roulette game that also incorporates features for neighbors bets and hot-or-cold numbers. Players are given access to recent numbers on the billboard, and the game’s intuitive interface allows for maximum playability.

As for blackjack, bettors can play up to three hands. The game uses a traditional six-deck shoe and blackjack pays 3-to-2.

Mercy of the Gods

Mercy of the Gods is a popular game with high volatility and even higher possible jackpots.

Players will enjoy a pyramid theme with the goal of solving mysteries to ultimately find the realm of Anubis and earn a shot at the gift of wealth jackpot

Though this game has high volatility, its 96.64% RTP is among the best at Golden Nugget. The game also recently awarded jackpots to players on DraftKings PA and MI on the same day, paying out over $900,000 combined between the two players.


Sticking with the pyramid theme, IGT Cleopatra brings players into ancient Egyptian times. Players can enjoy symbols such as scatter and wild, with the Cleopatra symbol holding the highest rank.

Cleopatra is one of the most popular slot machine games ever played. This classic title is a five-reel game, with uncomplicated bonus features and free spins. This makes it appealing for newer and more experienced players alike, while offering a max payout of over $100,000.

Sphinx symbols are second, and three or more of them trigger a Cleopatra Bonus for 15 free spins. These free spins can compound for up to a maximum of 180 total free spins in any given round.

Molten Hot 7’s

The second in our series of classic titles, Molten Hot 7’s will take you back to the olden days with its three-reel format, though with improved graphics to match today’s era.

Recently released in New Jersey, this game provides action as hot as its name, while appealing to those who wish to play a less complex slot.

However, players can still take advantage of 27 paylines, progressive jackpots, and full-screen progressives. Players may bet anywhere from 25 cents to $200, and the game offers a max payout of $240,000.

Jin Ji Bao Xi Endless Treasure

This Asian-themed game offers five reels and four jackpots, which can be won by landing golden symbols such as tigers, carp, and turtles.

At the start of a game, the bonus symbol randomly has a “Fu value” attached to it, which can be multiplied for a bonus if a player attains a requisite number of gold symbols. 

The golden chance and Jin Ji Bao Xi features also may be activated, with the latter setting the table for a possible jackpot. Players can win in up to 243 ways, with a max bet of $88 and a max payout of $250,000

Slingo DaVinci Diamonds

Slingo DaVinci Diamonds is a new game on Golden Nugget that provides a different take on the classic title from IGT, DaVinci Diamonds.

Those looking for enticing graphics featuring renaissance art themed from DaVinci’s time should look straight to this game. Its new cascading reels feature adds even more fun, providing unlimited mark off chances at collecting Slingos with each spin.

Overall, this game has plenty of features worth checking out. It has medium-high volatility, but pays out an above-average 96.28% RTP.

Golden Nugget Video Slot

Last but not least, this exclusive title was the first of its kind, custom designed for Golden Nugget. It is already available on other Golden Nugget casino skins and provides a theme that will make players feel like they are in the 1940s. That’s when Golden Nugget first opened in Las Vegas.

The game offers an interface that won’t overwhelm the senses, though it still shows plenty of exciting features, such as the golden touch, which turns symbols into gold. There is also the free games feature that can award up to 25 free games and can be triggered multiple times.

Overall, this is an easy game to play with middle-to-high volatility, and a return-to-player percentage ranging from 95.3% to 95.62%. This depends on players’ GoldenBet settings. While this is lower than most other new games, it will also be one of the more enjoyable titles available.

Updates on Golden Nugget Casino PA launch

Though GNOG is playing a game of “hurry up and wait” with the PGCB, the company has been plenty active. It’s made several moves in recent months as it prepares for launch.

DraftKings became GNOG’s parent company back in May, completing a merger where both brands bring instant credibility to each others’ areas of expertise. DraftKings gained access to Golden Nugget and Landry’s 5.5 million-user database, while GNOG is now affiliated with the DraftKings brand that operates sportsbooks in 17 states and DFS in over 40.

Additionally, DraftKings Casino is operational in five states, Pennsylvania included. The union between them means that when Golden Nugget PA releases, the combined entity offers two online casinos within PA. 

Once launching, we expect Golden Nugget to have an enticing first-time deposit bonus similar to its offering in New Jersey. Across state lines, players can receive a deposit match up to $1,500. They also are given $10 in bonus cash, creating a maximum reward of $1,510.

Currently, Golden Nugget Casino is live in MI, NJ & WV.
