Online Casinos Draw New Players with Free Play, Deposit Matches
Online casino sites are in a steep competition to attract you—the player. And their best bet for keeping you engaged on their online offerings is to have you sign up, look around and find the features and games that will keep you coming back.
Players have the advantage as online casino sites pack in first-time offers and bonuses whenever you register as a first-time player.
Nearly all online casinos offer a first-time deposit match. In other words, they double your first deposit by matching it with bonus dollars. Bonus dollars aren’t exactly free money, since there are wagering requirements before cashing out. Most are slanted towards slots games as other games don’t count as a full 100 percent wager towards the requirement.
Still, you get to play with the bonus money essentially for free and try out the site.
Here’s a look at some of the best introductory offers from New Jersey’s online casinos sites:
- GoldenNuggetCasino.com: GoldenNuggetCasino.com matches your first deposit up to $1,000 on deposits of more than $30. The wagering requirement is 10 times the bonus.
- TropicanaCasino.comand VirginCasino.com: These partnered sites take a different approach and offer you a cash-back deal of up to $100. Basically, if you lose up to $100 in your first week of play, you’ll get it back. It’s a little complicated, so read the rules, but the nice thing is you get the money back as cash with no play-through requirement.
- PlaySugarHouse.com: PlaySugarHouse.com has a deposit match of 100 percent up to $250. However, the play-through requirement is just one time the bonus, meaning you bet the $250 and keep what you win. This is one of the best deals in New Jersey.
- BorgataCasino.com: BorgataCasino.com has an actual welcome package with a $20 bonus for joining and a first deposit match up to $600. There’s a 10 times play-through requirement.
- PalaCasino.com: You get a $20 bonus for signing up and a free spin on the site’s daily $1 million bonus wheel and a guaranteed $5 bonus. The deposit match is up to $500.
