While the words New Jersey and casinos may evoke images of the bright lights and boardwalks of Atlantic City, fans of poker and table games have been handed a huge stay-at-home bonus this year – the online version going through the roof in 2020.

复古传奇sf The first thing to note is that every gaming licence in the state has to connect your favourite online casino to a bricks and mortar version. That means additional security for the player and no fly-by-night shysters after your money.

With that out of the way, how can you best decide between the variety of virtual casinos available in New Jersey?

That’s where sites like come into play, the experts picking out the best offers, most interesting and lucrative games and basically saving you the hassle of weeding out the bad sites from the good ones – and recommending the best of the bunch.

Naturally, what one person enjoys, say poker, might not suit the needs of the baccarat enthusiast, or the blackjack maestro.

You may even have a specialist or niche game in mind, such as 90 Ball Bingo, or you love the video poker game from a specific provider. Whatever your fancy, there’s certain to be a version of it in the New Jersey online casinos.

复古传奇sf Let’s take a look at some of the biggest names in the game and see what they are offering up to new and existing customers.

The Borgata and its six swimming pools may be off limits right now, but their virtual version has Live dealer blackjack, roulette and baccarat to give you that realistic feel of being in Atlantic City’s best-known establishment.

Borgata’s Virtual Sports are another option to remind players that not everything has to be missed out on – horse, car and bike racing as well as football on the menu.

复古传奇sf Another of Atlantic City’s ‘biggies’ that has a full online offering is the Tropicana, the VIP Programme one of its main attractions, along with a huge portfolio of Playtech slots.

复古传奇sf Harrah’s will be well-known to most, the Caesars-owned online casino placing a heavy focus on iOS and Android users – the latter its illustrious Apple competitor.

One of Harrah’s biggest draws is the Caesars Reward system, whereby customers can build up their Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Seven Stars bonuses to use online or when the live casinos resume activity.

This year has been one of the best-ever for New Jersey’s online casinos, but if you think that means players are losing out, think again.

More money is more money, and those online jackpots aren’t getting any smaller, with one mother-of-three recently pocketing a monster $278k slots win.

Playing on the SugarHouse Online casino, the 53-year old New Jersey woman bet just $2 on the Divine Fortune game, the ancient Greek themed slot one of the most popular due to its huge progressive jackpots.

复古传奇sf Last year the online version of Divine Fortune was responsible for four of the ten biggest jackpot payouts in the state, totalling over $1.2million.

It’s not just the progressive jackpots that pay out either, with many of the sites recommended above having their own ‘one-off’ bonanza up for grabs.

The Virgin Casino’s online version has an instant $10,000 jackpot, which could hit ‘any bet, any time’, and like the others has great cashback bonuses and promos to go along with it.

Top of the list when it comes to welcome bonuses is the BETMGM online casino, offering a massive up to $1000 matching bonus as well as $25 free play to get you started.

The MGMInternational brand is also one of the New Jersey sites that offer online poker along with its casino and sportsbook play, and runs over 70 tournaments every day, with a Daily $10k among the star attractions. 

Now, if you are new to the whole online casino world, you’ll likely be looking for reassurance that everything is above board, or above the boardwalk perhaps given that it’s New Jersey.

复古传奇sf As mentioned, all the online casinos are attached to land-based establishments, and everything is regulated by the Garden State’s Division of Gaming Enforcement. If you’re not sure of a site, simply check it out on their bona fide list .

Hopefully this has given you a quick overview of the state of play in New Jersey when it comes to online casinos – all that remains is to wish you good luck at the tables!
