The Golden Nugget Atlantic City was a casino from 1980 to 1987 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It is currently the Atlantic City Hilton.

It was built in 1980 by a partnership of Golden Nugget Companies and Michael R. Milken for $140 million.

Steve Wynn bought the Strand Motel on Boston Avenue and the Boardwalk for $8.5 million and tore it down. Joel Bergman, who designed Wynn's other resorts, designed it (in 2009 he is working on renovations to it). It was Atlantic City's sixth casino after legalized gambling was passed in 1976. It had 506 rooms and at the time was the second smallest casino in the city. By 1983 it was the city's top earning casino. Its entertainment included Frank Sinatra. Advertisements featured Wynn, including one where he delivered towels to Sinatra.

It was Wynn's first major casino after establishing his reputation with resurrecting the Golden Nugget Casino in Las Vegas. He had high-profile squabbles with state officials, and in 1987 he sold the casino for $440 million to Bally's Entertainment Corporation, which changed the name to Bally's Grand Casino/Hotel. Wynn publicly vowed he would never return Atlantic City although he had hedged his rhetoric with the purchase of an area by the Atlantic City Marina. Wynn left Atlantic City to build the Mirage Casino in Las Vegas that heralded the modern transformation of the Las Vegas Strip.

After the Hilton Hotels Corporation acquired Bally Entertainment, the property was renamed Atlantic City Hilton. In 1998, Hilton Corporation spun off its casino properties into a new company initially called Park Place Entertainment and later renamed Caesars Entertainment. In 2005, Harrah's Entertainment merged with Caesars Entertainment and sold the property to Colony Capital, LLC.
None of the successor casinos enjoyed the success that Wynn had. (Credit: Wikipedia).

Review

When you register a real money account at Lucky Nugget they will give you a massive $1000 (or Euros or UK Pounds depending on the currency you select after installing the software). To play with for 1 hour, at the end of the hour any winnings you have from your 1000 is moved across to your bonus account for your use in the casino. In addition to this when you make your first $50 deposit they will give you another $50 free.

This is perfect as you get one full hour to play with their money and see if you like the games they offer and then when you decide to deposit your own money you get your deposit doubled (plus you get any winnings you made from your free hour).
