What are the most reputable online casino brands in New Jersey? Which welcome bonuses offer the most back for your money? We’ve gone through all the terms and conditions from the top online casinos in New Jersey and ranked their welcome bonuses so that you know what to expect before signing up for an account.
1. Borgata Casino – $600 Deposit Match + $20 Free
Borgata is our number one welcome offering in New Jersey as they give all players signing up a $20 Free Play. There is only 1x wagering requirement on this and so it’s not difficult to make a quick profit. The 100% deposit match of up to $600 is also easy to understand, is credited quickly and 10x wagering requirements are not too restrictive for such a high value bonus.
2. BetMGM Casino – $1000 Deposit Match + $25 Free
BetMGM have a similar offer to Borgata and, in theory it’s better because it’s a bigger deposit match. However, they lose points as there is a very quick time period to use the bonus funds (5 days compared to Borgata’s 14).
They do have a lowering wagering turnover than Borgata (6x compared to 10x) but that wagering has to be done quickly! Also available in West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
3. Golden Nugget – $1000 Casino Match Bonus
Golden Nugget is probably the best online casino in New Jersey, with the most live dealer options and the widest selection of slots. They rank behind Borgata and MGM because they don’t give a Free Play bonus and 10x wagering of the deposit and bonus awarded is pretty big. You have 30 days though so it’s definitely beatable.
4. DraftKings Casino – $1500 Deposit Match + $10 Free
DraftKings are offering all new customers a $1500 Deposit Match to play with on their online casino and it’s a great way for novice players to get started on online casino gaming. The offer is easy, just make a deposit at DraftKings and then play on the online casino.
5. Hard Rock – $1000 Deposit Match + 50 Free Spins
Hard Rock is a great online casino and their $1000 deposit match puts them level with Golden Nugget. The 50 Free Spins should put them above Golden Nugget but 14 days to clear 20x the bonus funds and Live Dealer not counting towards wagering puts them down a place.
6. BetAmerica Casino – $1000 First Deposit Match
BetAmerica don’t have a casino in Atlantic City and so may not be attractive to a lot of players but their $1000 matched deposit is great. It’s 10 times deposit + bonus wagering (so the same as Golden Nugget) but there are no restrictions on play. There is also a full year to complete the wagering. They are only 6th because we love the AC casinos more.
7. bet365 Casino – $100 New Player Bonus
The bet365 brand is online only and for this reason New Jersey residents might not know about the betting company. They’re huge in Europe and the product is the best we’ve ever seen. The welcome bonus isn’t as big as some of the other casinos though and 15 times wagering of both the bonus and the deposit is higher than Golden Nugget, Hard Rock and BetAmerica.
8. 888casino – $500 Welcome Bonus + $20 Free Play
888casino is another digital only brand with a sportsbook offering alongside it. The $20 Bonus is tough for some to claim though with an email being sent to verify your account and then a link having to be clicked to accept the offer. Once accepted it’s tough to turn it into cash as 30 times rollover on $20 isn’t easy to do. They should try to follow Borgata and just make it 1 times!
9. Pala Casino – $250 Deposit Match + $25 Free
Like 888Casino, Pala give a Free Play and no-one can complain about free money. But, like 888Casino, it’s tough to turn that free cash into real money and the games at Pala aren’t as good as some of the other casinos.
10. Tropicana Casino – $100 Cash Back + 200 Free Spins
The Tropicana welcome bonus is great as you are eligible for 200 free spins when you register. However, the $100 Cash Back is a lower value than the majority of other casino brands and the cash back is based on net losses on your first deposit. This means that you will only receive cash back on your first deposit if you build up losses.
