Online Casino: NJ online casinos still lagging behind

Online Casino: NJ online casinos still lagging behind With online gambling legal in Atlantic City, many were quick to check out the new online casino websites by some of the premier names in New Jersey gambling. And those with some previous experience with the online casinos were hardly impressed by the offerings. While legalizing online casino gambling, even in a handful of US localities, is a definite step in the right direction, the land-based casinos are clearly miles behind the "traditional" online casinos. If we take a look at the very basic features of the "new" online casinos and those popular online gambling websites serving U.S. players we can easily see that limited competition is certainly of no benefit to the customer.

 For example, the most common way of comparing online casinos has long been the free bonus they offer new players. Anyone who starts in the internet gambling business would research the bonus very carefully and will try to compete or at least match what the competition has to offer. Just looking at what's available at some of the NJ online casinos and comparing it to the online casino offers from some of the top gambling brands - it's laughable at best. The Borgata Casino, for instance, is offering a $20 bonus to new players...Meanwhile Slots Plus, a popular and reputable gambling website in business for over a decade, currently offers up to $7,000 in free casino money to first-time customers of the casino. Tropicana Casino offers a "much better" bonus to New Jersey residents - a whopping $50 bonus, yet Bovada Sports, probably the most popular gambling website in the USA will match your deposit up to $3,000! It's clear that the Atlantic City online casinos are attempting to "compete" with the popular online casinos not based on product, but on the restrictions the internet casinos face in the United States.

 You think that just because the NJ online casino is licensed by the local authorities you could use your credit card to deposit? Think again, the Atlantic City online casinos are facing the same problem all online casinos are facing - the credit card issuers themselves are forbidding internet gambling transactions. And chances are that you'd be able to fund your casino account easier at Old Havana Casino than at Borgata. While legalizing online gambling is certainly the way to go, players would find little benefit until the playing field is open to actual competitors. Until then - enjoy your $20 bonus.
