Coronavirus has forced festivals and sporting events to be cancelled and it seems only a matter of time before Casinos are also forced to close their doors due to health fears. However, New Jersey players have plenty of online options.

Coronavirus is currently sweeping across the USA and has already forced some high profile event closures with Coachella and SWSX Music Festivals already cancelled due to the pandemic.

Sporting events have also been hit by the virus with a number of NCAA basketball fixtures already having been played behind closed doors. There is a very real fear that the March Madness tournament will also have to take place in empty arenas due to worries about large gatherings of people.

The same thing has happened in Asia, and one industry that has suffered badly has been Casino Gaming. Macau, which is known as the international gambling capital of the world, closed the doors of its six Casinos for over two weeks in February in a move which has so far been estimated to have cost the properties over $3.3 billion.

There may be a similar shutdown coming in Atlantic City as public health fears of a thoroughfare of people into the large Casino floors may either spark closures or, at the very least, a downturn in traffic.

Thankfully for New Jersey residents there is the option to play their favorite Casino games (and to bet on sports) without having to set foot on the Casino floor. All the major Atlantic City properties have their own apps and this may be the push that some players need in order to ‘go digital’ with their Casino gaming.

There are certainly plenty of options for players with Borgata, Resorts, Mohegan Sun, Golden Nugget, MGM and Hard Rock all offering the opportunity to not only play online, but also to earn comp points, which can be used to earn bonuses or make purchases in the Casinos when they do reopen their doors.

Here is a list of the current available New Jersey Online Casinos. Click on any of the images to download the apps and claim a Free Bet when playing online:
