If you’re an online casino player, what could possibly be better news than an exciting new bonus offer to reward you for your play and help boost your bankroll? A string of bonuses from the same casino several days in succession! And that’s exactly what Caesars Online Casino is offering over this long holiday weekend.
Caesars NJ online is calling the promotion Road to Summer – a fitting name indeed, since Friday, May 25 is when the nearby towns of Ocean City and Wildwood, NJ have their celebratory “unlocking” of the ocean to kick off the official start of the summer season.
Are you ready to get started?
Caesars online casino Road to Summer bonus weekend
The Caesars online casino promotion started Thursday, May 24 and continues through Monday, May 28. That’s five consecutive days of bonuses, including a different offer every day.
Even if you missed day one, it’s definitely not too late to start now, as there are plenty of opportunities remaining to cash in on this very attractive offer.
Here are the steps that you will need to follow each day of the promotion that you wish to participate.
- Log into your CaesarsCasino.com account.
- Click on “My Account” and then on “My Bonuses.”
- Locate that day’s bonus listed under “Available Bonuses.”
- Then click on “Deposit” or “Claim” next to the bonus and make your deposit and claim your bonus.
Be sure to read all the terms and conditions carefully. It would be a shame to miss out on any of these offers over what would look like a minor technicality. So if anything in the Caesars online casino description is not completely clear, don’t hesitate to contact Customer Support for assistance.
All deposits must be at least the minimum amount specified to qualify for a bonus. And where a bonus code is also specified, it needs to be entered at the time of deposit. As usual, deposits made at the Caesars Atlantic City casino cashier’s cage or via PayNearMe don’t count.
All bonuses offered in this promotion are subject to the usual Caesars online casino terms and conditions. Depending on which type of game you choose to clear the bonus, the wagering requirements will be one of the following:
- Slots: 5x bonus + deposit
- Video Poker: 10x bonus + deposit
- All Other Games: 25x bonus + deposit
You have seven days to complete the wagering. While this wagering is still in progress, not only the bonus itself but also the deposit tied to the bonus plus any resulting winnings will be temporarily locked into your account and unavailable for withdrawal. Upon satisfactory completion of the required wagering, provided the seven day period has not yet expired, you will have access to all of these funds.
However, canceling the bonus, premature attempted withdrawal of unavailable funds before the wagering is completed, or failure to complete the wagering within the allotted time period will result in both the bonus and any resulting winnings being forfeited.
You should note, too, that you can go ahead and claim the next day’s bonus even if you are still working on clearing the previous day’s bonus. So don’t feel you have to rush to get all of the wagering done in one day. You can and should take your time clearing each bonus. However, you will only be able to clear one bonus at a time.
Is the Caesars online casino Road to Summer offer worth your time?
Since Caesars NJ online casino only posts each day’s offer on the particular day it is valid, there is no way to comment ahead of time which ones are the best of the bunch. You will have to log in each day and see for yourself if that day’s offer is one you wish to take.
Today’s offer is a 50 percent deposit match up to $130. Ordinarily, that would be a great offer. However, the catch is that because your wagering requirements entail equal multiples of the bonus and deposit (which is twice the bonus), the wagering requirements balloon to triple what they would be otherwise.
Unfortunately, all of the deposit match bonuses in this promotion come with the same unfavorable terms, requiring you to wager a specified multiple of both the bonus and deposit combined.
This now appears to be standard policy at Caesars, in sharp contrast to other NJ gambling websites, where only the bonus, and not the deposit, determines the wagering requirements for clearing a bonus. The higher wagering requirement at Caesars online casino makes clearing the bonus more of a challenge for smaller players.
Handling the hefty wagering requirements
The best way to make the hefty wagering requirements at Caesars more manageable is to clear the bonus at least partially with slots and then to spread out your play over the full seven days available to you.
Choose games with a 96 percent or better return to player (RTP) to improve your chances of winning and help you weather the dry spells. A good slot to try is Serengeti Diamonds, which comes with a 97 percent RTP.
Increased value from multiple bonuses in succession
Lastly, because you are getting multiple bonuses in succession, the overall value is enhanced. So even if some of the individual bonus offers aren’t great, you gain the cumulative benefit provided by multiple bonuses.
If you can afford the deposits and wagers that the bonus offers entail, this weekend’s Road to Summer promotion at Caesars NJ online is definitely worth your time.
There is so much happening and about to happen in Atlantic City in 2018. And one event this weekend, which almost certainly would have been headline news otherwise, has not received all the attention it deserves.
This article is intended to correct the oversight and make you all aware of the remarkable celebration about to take place. 2018 marks the 40th year of legalized casino gambling in Atlantic City. In addition, this Memorial Day Weekend, the oldest casino hotel, Resorts Atlantic City, celebrates its 40th anniversary!
2018 is a year to remember
2018 will go down in history as one of the biggest years ever for Atlantic City and NJ gambling.
Legalization of sports betting
First and foremost, on May 14, the US Supreme Court ruled that the 1992 federal ban on sports betting, aka PASPA, in all but four states was unconstitutional, thereby freeing each individual state to set its own policies.
New Jersey, which was instrumental in bringing about this exciting new development, has the necessary legislation already in place. So from this point onward, it’s only a matter of dotting the Is and crossing the Ts and giving the casinos the green light.
For example, Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa has indicated that its race book, which will now be called a Race & Sports Book, will start taking sports bets on day one. The Borgata will also be drawing on the vast experience of its parent company MGM Resorts International to create a brand new state-of-the-art sportsbook.
Other Atlantic City casinos will also probably have temporary headquarters set up to start taking sports bets as soon as possible, until such time as they are able to offer a more elaborate Las Vegas-style sportsbook.
Two new casinos
Exciting new entertainment and restaurant options
As if all the above isn’t enough, there will be plenty of new options this summer for non-gamblers, too. The casinos are putting out all the stops to bring top entertainment to town, especially at Hard Rock, with 60 acts booked for the summer alone. There will be three concerts on the beach as well: Sam Hunt (July 1), Demi Lovato (July 26), and the Chainsmokers (July 29).
New restaurants will be opening, too, starting with the much anticipated soft opening this weekend of Gordon Ramsay Steak (replacing the former Steakhouse) at Harrah‘s Resort.
The Skybridge connecting the Chelsea Tower with the Tropicana Atlantic City will also open this weekend, as will Chelsea Five Gastropub, where you will be able to enjoy steak, seafood, and panoramic views.
Atlantic City visitors and residents alike will also want to check out the new eateries near the Boardwalk on Tennessee Avenue:
- Tennessee Beer Hall: Featuring pub and comfort foods and over 100 craft beers
- Hayday Coffee: Atlantic City’s only independently owned coffee shop
- MADE: Specializing in everything chocolate, including chocolate-based cocktails
Flashback to 40 years ago: The debut of casino gambling in Atlantic City
May 26, 1978, was day one of an equally memorable era in Atlantic City. That was when Atlantic City officially became the first region in the US outside of Nevada to offer legalized gambling. It was also when the property then called Resorts International first opened its doors on the Atlantic City Boardwalk.
What it was like at Atlantic City’s first casino back then
Opening Day at Resorts was sheer craziness. Hopefully, when Hard Rock and Ocean Resort Casino open on June 28, they will be much better prepared to handle the overflow crowds than Resorts was in 1978. But you have to hand it to Resorts not only for trying their best but for the property’s phenomenal growth over the past 40 years to get to where it is today.
At 10 a.m. on May 26, 1978, when the casino opened for the first time, the lines waiting to get in “the only game in town” extended for six blocks. Then, once inside, finding a vacant slot machine or seat at a table game proved to be an even bigger challenge. There were only 84 games in the whole casino — nowhere near enough to accommodate the enormous crowds.
Another problem was the accumulation of coins in the slot machines and a shortage of employees to keep emptying the hoppers fast enough for the next round of players.
Within minutes of the ceremonial ribbon cutting by then-New Jersey Gov. Brendan T. Byrne, entertainer Steve Lawrence rolled the dice and became the very first gambler to place a bet in the casino. (By the way, in case all of you trivia buffs want to know, he rolled a five and immediately sevened out.)
Top entertainment from the get-go
Back in the day, Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme were frequent performers in the Superstar Theater. They shared the spotlight with a long lineup of other top entertainers such as Don Rickles, Johnny Carson, Steve Martin, Natalie Cole and, of course, Frank Sinatra.
Resorts was a property that continued to evolve
Over the years, Resorts Atlantic City underwent multiple ownership changes. As other larger and flashier casino properties opened in Atlantic City, Resorts began showing its age.
It became increasingly apparent that in order to survive in the rapidly changing and highly competitive market, it would have to broaden its appeal to include a younger generation. And there was a time when it even looked like Resorts’ days were numbered. But fortunately, Resorts stepped up to the plate in a big way. Otherwise, it could have easily become one of the casualties of 2014.
In 2012, Resorts Atlantic City entered into a partnership with Mohegan Sun to manage the property. The same year, Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville also found a new home at Resorts. Guests could choose between Margaritaville, Landshark Bar & Grill, and 5 O’Clock Somewhere bar and almost feel they were at a Jimmy Buffett concert.
Another noteworthy innovation was the addition of the first casino iGaming lounge in 2015. The room is unique because it gives visitors to Atlantic City who are new to online gambling a chance to try it in a relaxed setting where they can enjoy social interaction with other gamblers. Then, if they like the experience, they can sign up for an online account at ResortsCasino.com and/or MoheganSunCasino.com, and many of them do.
On the other hand, not everything at Resorts is different from the good old days. A case in point is Capriccio, a gourmet Italian restaurant, which is still going just as strong today as when it opened in 1978.
Celebrate 40 years with Resorts Atlantic City
Whether you were around for the grand opening of what is now Resorts Casino Hotel in 1978 or not, you’re invited to be part of the big celebration this weekend. Every day of the big holiday weekend, Resorts is planning something special. So why not pick what appeals to you most from the following and come out and join the fun!
Friday, May 25
- 9 a.m. to 1 a.m.: Mini Beach Ball Giveaway in the Promotions Booth. First come, first serve, while supplies last. One lucky Beach Ball holds $500 in slot cash!
- 2 p.m.: On the Casino Floor. Re-enactment of the first roll of the dice that officially opened the casino.
- 5 p.m.: Annual Beach Ball Drop. Thousands of beach balls will be released onto the Boardwalk.
Special contests and games on the Boardwalk, Resorts showgirls, Philadelphia Mummers, and other strolling entertainers will add to the festivities. In addition, Bar 1 will serve up drink specials and disco music from the 1970s.
Saturday, May 26
- 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.: Free pull on Atlantic City’s first slot machine located in the Margaritaville lobby for a chance to win $2,500 in slot cash.

Sunday, May 27

Play at Resorts Online Casino
This holiday weekend is also as good a time as any to try your luck in the Daily Games on ResortsCasino.com. You can play the Slot Game, Wheel Game, or both.
In addition, every Wednesday, 1,000 players are randomly picked in a drawing to win a $10 bonus. Visit the Resorts website for the full details on both promotions.
Like the prize in the Wednesday drawing, most of the prizes up for grabs in the Daily Games are also small, but you never know. You could win up to $10,000 in the Slot Game or win up to $3,000,000 in the Wheel Game!
By the way, you do not necessarily have to live in New Jersey to participate in the Daily Games, but you do need to be a registered ResortsCasino.com player with access to the NJ gambling website. Residents of New York, Florida, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico are not eligible.
Whether you plan to visit Atlantic City, play online, or both this weekend, as Resorts celebrates its 40th year here in Atlantic City, so should you.
After all, if it wasn’t for Resorts paving the way and being this region’s first casino back in 1978, Atlantic City would not be the great gaming capital of the East Coast that it is today. Congratulations to Resorts on 40 great years!
Every day is a good day at Pala Casino.
Why? Because there’s a new promo on offer from Monday to Sunday. Dubbed Daily Plays, these deals are basically your ticket to added value every day you ante-up. Naturally, like any NJ online casino bonus, you’ll have to be in it to win it. In practice, this means logging in or creating an account at Pala online casino and playing for real money.
However, as long as you can manage that, you’ll be able to collect a new bonus every day of the week. To help you see just how good every day can be at Pala online casino in New Jersey, here’s an overview of what you can get and when you can get it.
Monday Spins Reload
If free spins are your thing, Monday is the day to play at Pala. Now, there are plenty of free spin bonuses out there, but this one is a bit different. Because Pala Casino is home to the Million Dollar Spin slot game, you could bank a life-changing prize when you take this deal.
Put simply, when you deposit $25 on a Monday using the code SpinsNow25, you’ll receive 25 free turns on the Million Dollar Spin slot.
The gratis plays will be credited to your account within 72 hours at which point you can load up the big-money slot and start spinning. As well as a $1 million jackpot, this game has prizes ranging from $1 to $1,000. Any prize you bank will be subject to a 20X playthrough.
However, and this is the clincher, the $1 million isn’t. This basically means that you could deposit $25 on a Monday, spin for free, and win a milly!
If you’re intrigued by the Million Dollar Spin Slot but you don’t fancy making a deposit, take a look at the Tuesday10 promotion. In a nutshell, if you earn 250 Status Points between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. ET on a Tuesday, you’ll receive 10 free turns on the mega jackpot slot.
Naturally, you’ll need to know what it takes to earn 250 loyalty points. Well, the amount you’ll collect will depend on the games you play. Using the lists below, you can see exactly what you’ll need to do on a Tuesday to get your free shot at $1 million:
- Wager $20 on slots to earn between 20 and 86 points depending on your VIP status.
- Wager $20 on video poker to earn between 4 and 39 points depending on your VIP status.
- Wager $20 on table games to earn between 4 and 52 points depending on your VIP status.
- Rake $1/pay $1 in tournament fees to earn 50 points from cash games, tournaments, and STTs.
- Earn 1 point for every 12 cents you spend on bingo tickets.
Just like Mondays, you can pick up some free spins on the $1 million slot when you make a deposit. Following the same process as before, you’ll need to make a $25 deposit using the code SPINSWED and you’ll get another crack at the seven-figure jackpot.
Gaming on the go has become big business in the New Jersey iGaming world over the last few years, and Pala online casino is firmly on this bandwagon. Indeed, as people are rolling around, playing everything from slots to blackjack via their mobile, Pala’s promo team has thrown up a nice little bonus.
Open to everyone that downloads the iOS or Android app, the Mobile Thursdays deal gives you triple points.
Basically, when you log in and place a bet on any game using your mobile on a Thursday, you’ll get 3X the number of points you would under normal circumstances. So, if you look at the table we created earlier, you’ll see that slots give you the chance to earn between 20 and 86 Status Points. But, if you go mobile on Thursdays, you’ll take this earning rate to 60 and 258!
The Friday 50
To get your weekend off to a winning start, The Friday 50 is your chance to get more when you make a deposit. Activating this deal requires two steps:
- Log in and enter the deposit code FRIDAY50 on the cashier page.
- Input an amount equal to or greater than $50 into the deposit box and hit the confirm button.
Assuming you can manage that (we’re pretty sure you can), you’ll receive a 50 percent bonus. For example, if you deposited $100 on a Friday using the bonus code, you’ll get $50 in bonus credits. As with any Pala promo, the free credits are subject to a 20X playthrough.
In line with this, all slots bets are given 100 percent credit, while all other games have a contribution of 20 percent (except craps which is nothing). However, if you can follow these simple guidelines, this is an easy way to boost your bankroll ready for the weekend.
Play the slot of the week on a Saturday and you’ll earn 10X Reward Points. Under normal circumstances, your VIP level will dictate how many Reward Points you earn.
For example, if you’re at Level 1 it will be a 4:1 ratio of Reward Points to Status Points. Climb to Level 5 and it’s a 10:1 ratio. This dynamic doesn’t change on a Saturday. However, when you play the right game, you will improve your earn-rate by 10X.
So, if you were already earning at a rate of 10:1, you could improve that by 10X (i.e. 100:1) just by playing the slot of the week. Other than knowing this, all you need to do is check Pala online casino’s promo pages to see which slot has been picked. Once you’ve found the right game, get online, get active and you’ll bank some serious points on a Saturday.
Keep an eye on Sundays at Pala online casino
Even though we said every day is a good day at Pala online casino, the reality is that Sunday is a free day. At this point, the operator doesn’t have a deal for this day. Fortunately, things are changing. A new bonus is in the works, so the best thing to do is create an account, log in and keep checking for updates.
By following our secure sign-up link, you can keep tabs on the Sunday bonus as well as all of the Daily Plays we’ve outlined for you today.
