Top NJ Online Casino Gambling Promotions: Barbara’s Best Bets

Barbara Nathan Updated on June 11, 2015

Top picks online casino promotions NJNot many people in their right mind who have lived all their life in New York City, the city that never sleeps, would move to the tiny town of Absecon, New Jersey on the outskirts of Atlantic City – even if, like me, they write about casino gambling for a living.

But that is exactly what this writer did in November, 2013 in order to be right here in the center of things when history was made with the official launch of legal New Jersey online casino and poker sites.

Now I am super excited to be writing my first biweekly column, all about the special promotions that each of the websites is offering exclusively to online players. While it could be argued that nothing can match the 24-hour excitement and energy of land-based casinos, online gambling can also take you on a thrilling ride, and you don’t have to dress to impress or travel anywhere. Welcome to the wonderful world of online gambling, Atlantic City style, in the online casinos that never sleep!

As you probably already know, you do not have to be a New Jersey resident to play in its online casinos, so visitors are welcome. But you do have to be physically situated inside the state at the time of your play to gamble for real money and participate in the special promotions you are going to read about here.

There are a lot of casinos to cover, so let’s lead off with the one that has consistently been number one in revenue, both online and offline, the Borgata.

Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa

Festival Park Concert Package Giveaway

The Borgata is gearing up for the big summer concert entertainment season with the much anticipated June 13 opening of Festival Park, the first Atlantic City casino outdoor concert arena. That’s where some of the biggest acts in music like the KillersMeghan Trainor, Boz ScaggsJames Taylor, and even the duo of Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett will be performing.

Every Tuesday through July 28, a lucky player – maybe you – will be chosen to win a pair of concert tickets and an overnight stay at the Borgata.

In order to participate, simply log onto your BorgataCasino.com or BorgataPoker.com account from your PC or Mac, go to the Promotions tab, and opt in to the Festival Park concert promotion to receive one free entry.

You can earn additional entries (up to nine more per week) based on play. Terms and conditions apply. See the website for additional information.

Betfair NJ online casino

If we had a comeback award for just one online casino, Betfair Casino NJ would be our resounding choice.

Not to take away from any of the other sites, but Betfair had the misfortune to be partnered initially with the doomed Trump Plaza.

When that casino closed its doors permanently in September of 2014, Betfair, which also had been struggling, could have chosen to stop operating in New Jersey, which it would have had to do unless it could quickly secure a new partner.

Golden Nugget Casino stepped up to the plate, and now, business at Betfair is booming. But would you really expect any less from an online casino whose name and promotions tell savvy players everything they need to know.

Game of the Month

Every month, Betfaircasino.com features a different game of the month. Wager $50 or more on that game on a single day to receive a $5 bonus in your account.

The Game of the Month for June is Empire of Sand.

Daily Betfair Bankroll Boosters

Start and end the week with a big smile and don’t forget every day in between, because at BetfairCasino.com, every day is bonus day.

Monday Mayhem

Receive a 50% match bonus up to $50 on your first deposit of the day.

Minimum deposit: $20

Wagering requirements: 20x deposit*

Tuesday Booster

Make a deposit between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. any Tuesday and receive a 20% bonus.

Minimum deposit: $20

Wagering requirements: 10x deposit*

Wednesday Winners

Most casinos, if they offer cashback at all, extend the offer only as a percentage of the player’s losses. However, at BetfairCasino.com, Wednesday is win day for everyone depositing $20 or more and wagering $100 or more, whatever the outcome!

Your cashback will equal 1% of the total amount wagered.*

Thrifty Thursday

Make a deposit between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Thursday and receive a 50% bonus up to $100.

Minimum deposit: $20

Wagering requirements: 20x deposit*

Risk Free Friday

Play your favorite slots and receive a 100% Value Back Bonus on any losses up to $20.

Weekend Warriors

Do you have what it takes to be a Weekend Warrior? All of those weekday bonuses could be just a warmup for a fantastic winning weekend.

First, a deposit of $20 is required. Then the object is to accumulate as many points as possible both Saturday and Sunday because, depending on how many Weekend Warrior points you earn, you could be eligible for a bonus of at least $10 all the way up to $100.

Every game counts, but slots earn you the most points. But hurry because the bonus clock starts ticking at 12:01 a.m. EST on Saturday and stops at 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday.

If you come up short, no worries, though, because this promotion, like all of the other daily specials, is not going to disappear anytime soon. In other words, you can try again next weekend!

*All play must be completed the same day. Only slots count 100%. Roulette counts 50% and other table games only count 20%.
