Summer is in full swing and the New Jersey shore is packed with vacationers enjoying the sun, sand, and saltwater. While everyone is having fun, many NJ online casinos have been hard at work, improving their sites and adding new games to their repertoire.

So you might want to take a break to appreciate all they’ve done and test a few new games while you’re at it.

Here’s how the action shook out this month:

BetAmerica

This new online casino is the big winner this month, adding 18 new titles.

With the eight they added last month, the gaming library at BetAmerica is definitely worth consideration. They have 317 slot titles, six blackjack, 10 video poker, and seven table games, as well as multiple live dealer options.

Their latest additions this month include two Wheel of Fortune slots, three titles from Lightning Box Games (Astro Cat, Panda Pow, Respin Rhino), plus some of the more popular new titles:

  • Chain Beat: A music-based slot from Spin Games where the reels are set among 6 large speakers that provide the background music. The Chain Beat feature is bonus here, where Scatter symbols rain down from above and land on the reels.
  • Golden Grimoire: Sorcery is the basis for this slot from NetEnt, with an RTP of 96.44% and a pretty hefty max payout of $644,000. The game features Transforming Symbols and a Free Spins Bonus.
  • Shields of the Wild: A king awaits battle with his brave knight and army of soldiers in this offering from SG Digital. It features Marching Stacks and a Shield Wall feature where all symbols are upgraded, making for better wins.

Mohegan Sun and Resorts

These sister casinos are always improving their gaming library, which has put them squarely in the No. 3 and No. 2 spots, respectively, among all NJ online casinos. Mohegan Sun currently has six blackjack options, 15 video poker variations, 11 table games, and 540 slots, including 14 new titles added in the last month.

Resorts added 13 new slots, bringing their total up to 576 games. The only difference between these two is three more slot choices and one additional video poker game. Among the newest online casino games at these two gambling sites are:

  • Quick Hit Super Wheel Wild Red
  • Red Roo
  • Serengeti Lions
  • Star Watch Fire
  • Temple of Nudges
  • Wild Fury Jackpots

SugarHouse

New Jersey’s No. 4 online casino added eight new slot games, bringing their slot total to 537 and their total gaming library to 567.

SugarHouse has been very consistent about adding to the site each month, with nine new titles last month and 21 the month prior to that. The casino is knocking on the door of Resorts and Mohegan Sun and could overtake them in the online casino game race if it keeps up this pace.

Among its latest additions are:

  • Crown of Egypt
  • Diamonds by Da Vinci
  • Double Leopard
  • Kat-Ching!
  • Scudamore’s Super Stakes
  • Total Meltdown
  • Wild Fury Jackpots

Caesars

In the fifth position is Caesars online casino, featuring 489 slots, five blackjack variations, 15 video poker options, and 11 table games, for a total of 520.

Caesars added older titles such as Raiden V and Mad Scatter’s Tea Party, as well as some brand new ones:

  • Temple of Nudges
  • Wild Fury Jackpot
  • Star Watch Fire
  • Quick Hit Super Wheel Wild Red

This last title has a slightly retro feel to it, with symbols that include bars, bells, cherries, and 7s. There is a Super Wheel feature that awards one of four bonuses, including a Wild Red Free Games Bonus.

You’ll spin the Super Wheel to find out the number of free games and then prior to each game, the inner wheel will spin to award you with 5, 10, 15, or 20 Wild symbols, which become Sticky Wilds and last for the duration of your free spins. Makes for some hefty wins.

Borgata and playMGM

Two more sister casinos sit in seventh and sixth place, respectively. Borgata boasts:

  • 395 slots
  • six blackjack
  • one video poker
  • four table games

…while playMGM tops that with:

  • 411 slots
  • five blackjack
  • 12 video poker
  • five table games

Borgata added six new games:

  • Great Guardians
  • Kat-Ching!
  • Mad Scatter’s Tea Party
  • Panda Pow
  • Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway
  • Wild Fury Jackpot

But playMGM added one additional slot: Temple of Nudges.

Golden Nugget

New Jersey’s top online casino, Golden Nugget, made a small addition to its gaming library this month with only four slots.

But it was enough to keep them at the top of the heap, with 41 more titles than its nearest competitor. The casino now has 617 games, including 566 slot titles, 15 blackjack options, 17 video poker variations, and 18 table games.

The latest additions are:

  • Chain Beat
  • Star Watch Fire
  • Temple of Nudges
  • Wild Fury Jackpots

Betfair

Our No. 8 rank goes to Betfair Casino, which now has 409 total titles. In the last month, Betfair has added one table game (EZBaccarat) and six slot titles, all of which are several months old:

  • Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge
  • Pigasus and Friends
  • Shields of the Wild
  • Space Wars
  • Wheely Wheely Big Win
  • Wild Play Super Bet

You’ll now find 372 slots, nine blackjack, 11 video poker, and 17 table games at Betfair’s NJ site.

Ocean

Ocean’s casino didn’t get much love last year, but since the ownership change, we’ve been seeing some action and additions to the site.

They only netted two new games overall, but dropped some older titles in favor of eight new slots:

  • Football: Champions Cup
  • Kat-Ching!
  • La Bomba
  • Mad Scatter’s Tea Party
  • Space Wars
  • Strolling Staxx Cubic Fruits
  • Temple of Nudges
  • Wishwood

They now have 233 slots, four blackjack variations, seven video poker options, and four table games, for a total of 253.
