Caesars Online Casino New Jersey Review
Caesars Entertainment Corporation is one of the world’s largest gaming companies. In addition to their flagship Caesars Palace properties, they own several other major gaming brands (like Harrah’s and Bally’s) as well as a variety of individual properties and golf courses across five countries.
With three locations in Atlantic City under their umbrella, it’s no surprise the company would be one of the first into New Jersey’s online gaming space. The online Caesars Casino actually existed prior to this outside of the United States, and there is also a “play money” version available through Facebook and mobile apps to residents of other states; the real money New Jersey version is an adaptation of those other versions, but it adds more games and options.
Caesars Casino Games and Gaming Software
Caesars Casino boasts one of the largest collections of games in New Jersey, along with a very appealing and slick interface.
Games on the virtual floor include:
- 486 slots
- 21 types of video poker
- Eight types of roulette
- Nine types of blackjack
- Let it Ride
- Three Card Poker
- Five types of virtual sports
- Four types of scratch cards
- Four types of Slingo
Caesars Casino is also one of the first in New Jersey to give skill-based games a try. These games incorporate elements of video games, meaning that they are no longer totally random — the player’s ability can influence the results. Games of this nature currently available at Caesars include:
- Monkey Drop
- The Voice
- Ghostbusters: Spectral Search
- Medieval Money
Blackjack players may also be interested to note that there are two varieties of micro-limit blackjack available at a minimum wager of 10 cents per hand.
One of the reasons that Caesars has so many games is that they are one of the few New Jersey casinos to use the NYX Open Platform System, which gives them access to over 40 of iGaming’s software providers. In addition, they have a range of slot titles from NetEnt, who are known for big-name licensed slots like South Park, Dracula and Scarface (just to name a few.)
Mobile Device Support
A Caesars Casino mobile app is available for Android and Apple’s iOS. The Caesars website says that “any” Android or Apple device can run their app, but that isn’t strictly true. Older Apple devices that can’t update to at least version 8 of iOS (the original iPad and any iPhone older than the 4S) won’t be able to run the app. It’s unclear as to what the minimum version of Android is (if any), but most other casino apps require you to have at least version 4.0 to 4.3.
Caesars Casino Live Dealer Tables
Caesars Casino does not have any live dealer games at this time.
Signup and Ongoing Bonuses
Caesars is currently offering new players $10 with no strings attached; you don’t even need to make a deposit. The $10 consists of free play that can be used at any game. There is a wagering requirement that has to be satisfied within seven days, but it’s much lighter than usual. You’ll only have to play through your winnings once at slots, twice at video poker or 5x for any other game.
Naturally, Caesars also offers the standard “welcome bonus” on your first deposit. They’ll simply double up to $300 of that initial deposit. The wagering requirement (5x at slots, 10x at video poker, 25x at all other games) must be met within your first seven days, however.
Aside from the huge collection of games and great interface, one of the big selling points of Caesars Casino is their ongoing bonus offers for regular players. These offers change regularly, but they often give players a free entry into a drawing just for logging in once per day. They also usually have some sort of deposit matching bonus available for account refills.
Caesars Casino Loyalty Program
Caesars Casino (along with their affiliated properties in New Jersey) is unique in the online gaming space, as online play allows you to plug into a real world rewards system that spans the country (and even extends into a few other countries.)
You can link your Total Rewards account to your New Jersey Caesars Casino online account. Total Rewards is the universal rewards program at all Caesars properties, both online and offline. Total Rewards credits can be used like cash at all of these properties for just about anything they sell there — hotel stays, dining, drinks, shopping and so on. You’ll also earn tier points in the Total Rewards system, and each new tier brings its own benefits.
Of course, if you’re not interested in brick-and-mortar comps, you can also simply convert your rewards credits to cash. Every 1,000 reward credits you earn online can be exchanged for $10 cash back into your account; that’s a better exchange rate than is offered at the real world properties!
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
Online bank transfers, Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and Neteller all work for both deposits and withdrawals. You can also deposit cash at any 7-Eleven, though you can’t withdraw funds this way. Finally, the casino cage at Caesars Atlantic City can also be used to deposit and withdraw funds in cash, or you can purchase a prepaid Caesars card for convenience. In addition to guaranteeing that transactions will go through, the prepaid card can be used anywhere Discover cards are accepted.
Caesars offers 24 hour support by phone (at 1-800-986-9248) and by email (NJSupport@CaesarsCasino.com). A web-based live chat is also available during the local afternoon and evening hours.
The sheer amount of slots on offer makes Caesars a must-stop for those who like to spin the reels. While the welcome bonuses aren’t anything overwhelming, Caesars offers some of the best ongoing bonuses to loyal players who regularly wager. Combine that with the very appealing interface and the wide range of other games and you have one of the strongest overall online casinos in the Garden State. The one big weakness is the lack of live dealer games, but one would think that with other casinos continuing to add these Caesars will find a way to make that happen before long.
