Legal NJ online casinos
In New Jersey, seven Atlantic City brick-and-mortar casinos hold licenses to offer online gambling. However, each certificate holder has the option to launch multiple “skins” in partnerships with outside gambling brands. That brings the total number of legal NJ online casinos to nearly two dozen.

Only those 21+ years of age who are physically inside the borders of New Jersey may gamble for real money at NJ gambling sites.

To ensure that players are indeed inside of the state, operators first verify their location using geolocation software.
New Jersey online casinos offer two main types of bonuses. The first type are free-money sign up bonuses which you can receive simply for creating a user account.
