New Jersey has more online casinos than any other state in the U.S. The land-based casinos have partnered up with online operators to triple your options for playing online.
The online casino industry has propped up many land-based casinos during rough times. Now most Atlantic City casinos have at least two online casino partners.
Here are some of the latest online casinos to get in on the New Jersey online action.
Although it was a bit late to the game in 2018, the Hard Rock came out, well, rocking. Hard Rock has a great user platform, one of the best selections of live dealer games, and a killer free spins offer for new customers.
Unibet is known primarily as a sports betting site, but there's good reason for casino lovers to go there too: namely, they have the highest payout percentage of any NJ casino: 98.3%!
Unibet also has some great live dealer games too!
Parx, the Pennsylvania giant, decided to get in on the action in NJ. They've teamed up with Ocean Resort and Casino, but they're not having as much success in the NJ market as many other online casinos. The platform is a bit lackluster and the game choice isn't huge.
Also known primarily as a sports betting site, Bet365 still has some improving to do if it wants to be competitive. As of now, game selection is limited and they have no live dealer games.
Although 888 is one of the most established online casino franchises worldwide, they're not resting on their laurels. They've recently updated their software platform, giving it one of the sleekest online experiences in NJ.
Their partnership with Evolution Studios has brought what many feel is the best live dealer gaming in New Jersey.
If you look at our list below, you'll see that these online casinos began about as soon as they were allowed:
Although Golden Nugget opened a couple of weeks after the others, it is by far the biggest money maker of all the online casinos.
Many of the casinos have kept up with technology, such as 888 and Borgata, while others, like Tropicana, have platforms that look a bit dated (or, if you prefer, retro).
Many players get locked into their familiar casinos, but there's one big reason not to: welcome bonuses. But that only means you need to find a "new to you" casino. It doesn't mean you have to try a casino that is new to New Jersey.
You might also try a favorite casino's partner. These are on the list below as well. For example, if you really like the selection at Borgata, grab one of those $25 welcome bonus dollar deals at BetMGM. They have most of the same games, including some amazing jackpot slots and live dealer games.
When you're looking for a new casino, be sure that it's a good fit. So you'll want to check out these areas:
