Responsible Gaming


Entrance into the Gaming Area

The Golden Nugget has a strict policy against underage gambling. Louisiana State law prohibits anyone (patron or vendor) under the age of 21 from entering a gaming area. Any person attempting to enter the gaming area appearing to be 35 years of age or younger, could be requested to present identification to validate their age.

The ONLY forms of valid ID that are acceptable are the following:

  • State or U.S Government Issued Photo ID or Driver’s License (including US Passport cards, and Nexus ID’s)
  • Military ID
  • Passport

Secondary identification may be requested if the ID presented is of questionable quality or cannot be verified.

IT IS UNLAWFUL FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF TWENTY-ONE (21) TO ENTER OR ATTEMPT TO ENTER THE GAMING AREA. VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSECUTED UNDER THE CITY OF LAKE CHARLES CITY CODE, SECTION 13-37.3.


Don't Let Gaming Get Out Of Hand

The Golden Nugget Casino believes gaming should always be handled responsibly. Our Responsible Gaming program extends to many aspects of our company's operation and is a topic employees from every department learn their first day on the job and are reminded of regularly through classroom instruction and internal communications. The concept of Responsible Gaming is made readily available to guests by communications posted throughout the casino.
