NJ Online Casino Rewards Program Ratings

Rewards programs are an often overlooked but extremely important aspect of choosing an online casino to play at. There are often vast differences between one site and the next, and if you want to give yourself the best chance to win – or at least make your money last longest – you should take advantage of all that a site has to offer.

There are plenty of NJ gambling websites to choose from, and comparing rewards programs can seem like a daunting task. So we’ve done it for you.

Each site below is listed alongside a total score out of 100, as well as an itemized list of how we got to that score and an explanation of the general features of the rewards program. Hopefully you’ll gain some insight as to which NJ online casino has the best signup offer for you.

Golden Nugget – 85 out of 100

The player program at Golden Nugget NJ is one of the best, that is for sure. Couple this with the ability to crossover your points and tier level to their brick and mortar programs and you have a big winner.

The only drawback is that, as is usually the case, the high volume players will reap the majority of the rewards. With that said, Golden Nugget runs significantly more general promotions than the majority of the NJ online competition.

Resorts – 83 out of 100

Resorts Online is definitely the place to be for slots players. With generous rewards and the largest initial deposit bonus among NJ online casinos, players will receive the most bang for their buck.

If you primarily play table games, or only very small volume, however, this may not be your absolute best option. Resorts tends to reward players based on consistent play, but does not run many random promotions that may otherwise pay off for smaller volume players.

Betfair – 81 out of 100

Betfair operates under a license from Golden Nugget in Atlantic City. They offer a very, very large bonus for new depositors at $1,500, as well as $10 for free, making it the best overall value in New Jersey.

Redeeming this bonus is not difficult if you play slots, but will be quite the task when playing table games or VP. All players can convert their player points into cash, but you will receive much better value if you play more and increase your tier.

Harrah’s – 72 out of 100

Despite being under the same CET umbrella, Harrah’s is markedly better all around than Caesars online. The sign up bonus remains small, but Harrah’s offers much more in the way of promotions than Caesars.

In fact, they are among the best in all of New Jersey. Players receive Total Rewards benefits when playing at Harrah’s NJ online.

Virgin Casino – 65 out of 100

Virgin is one of the newer NJ online casino brands. They offer a unique set of bonus offers that are very easy to redeem. Much like many brick and mortar casinos, their deposit match is credited in the form of cashback on losses. Lose up to $100, and Virgin will credit you the money.

There is also $20 entirely free, though there is a small playthrough requirement before cashing out. For lower limit players, Virgin is a great bet, especially when initially joining. The low cashback percentage as well as the ambiguous player program outline leaves something to be desired, but Virgin is new, and it is fair to assume these will both improve over time.

Tropicana – 65 out of 100

Tropicana AC is the parent operator of both Virgin online and Tropicana online. If you play at their casino in Atlantic City, we recommend Tropicana as a top pick. Not only does your play earn crossover rewards, but you will have the opportunity to receive both $20 totally free and up to $100 on your initial losses (if any).

Promotions at both online casinos are just about the same both in frequency and quality. Specific reward tiers are not clear, but Tropicana appears to specifically seek out higher volume players for their top available benefits.

Caesars – 60 out of 100

Caesars online does not really hold a candle to their competitors. The small sign up bonus is just the beginning. There are few other promotions to choose from, if you can find any at all. In addition, only slot play makes clearing the playthrough requirement reasonable.

The biggest asset to Caesars is found in their integration of their online player rewards program to benefits in their actual casinos. Low and high volume players alike will earn significant benefits via the Total Rewards program.

888 – 42 out of 100

888 online is, easily, the worst site for player rewards of the NJ casino options in just about every dynamic. The sign up bonus is not only very small, but it comes with very high play through requirements as well as a short time span in which the bonus can be redeemed (7 days). In addition, the promotions are virtually non-existent.

Your tier status or play volume does not matter, as points convert to cash at the same rate for every one, 1 point is earned per $16 wagered, and every 100 points is worth $1. 888 does not have any positive assets, aside from, possibly, its equal treatment to players regardless of their limits or volume. Of course, this is a negative for bigger players.
