Online Casino New Jersey

Highlights

  • Regulatory approval was given in October.
  • Jackpocket is known for its online lottery gaming product.
  • The brand is partnered with Caesars Interactive Entertainment and Harrah’s AC.

When a new online casino site launches in a US state, there is usually a big announcement and news pieces leading up to the starting day. For the Jackpocket Casino brand, that was not the case. The online gaming brand recently went live, offering a NJ online casino to players in the state, but did nothing to announce its launch.

It’s odd and doesn’t help the brand gain a solid footing in the Garden State. Let’s explore a bit on what Jackpocket Casino offers and how players can get started enjoying the gaming site.

Available Via Mobile and Desktop  

If the name Jackpocket seems familiar, it’s probably because of the brand’s lottery services. The company is known for offering lottery ticket sales. The company is available in several states across the US and provides official lottery tickets via mobile. The brand has now decided to dive into the online casino sector and was approved by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to offer iGaming services in the state.

Jackpocket works with Caesars Interactive Entertainment and Harrah’s Atlantic City to offer online casino gaming. Any online operator must have a land-based partner to penetrate the market. The brand is joining an already saturated market with ten years of operation under its belt, so it will be interesting to see if Jackpocket can hang with the more seasoned operators.

If the brand is successful, we may see Jackpocket branch into other areas of the US. It would make sense to offer online casino services in states like Michigan, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania if there is a high player demand. The operator would need to obtain a partnership agreement with a land-based casino in these states to start offering online casino services.

Smaller Selection of Games  

So far, the app seems to offer a nice collection of games by Jackpocket, with options including just under 200 titles. The game lobby includes new options and old favorites found at other online casino sites. When browsing the game lobby, players can find the top selections in a separate menu.  

Players should recognize many of the available games and want to play via the Jackpocket brand. These games include:  

  • American Roulette Live: Play this classic version of roulette to enjoy a traditional experience. The game features knowledgeable dealers to help players with any questions or concerns.
  • Starburst: This slot is popular for gamers, featuring the gem theme and jackpot prizes. It is an older title but a player's favorite.
  • Cleopatra: Play this traditional slot game for a chance to travel to Egypt and play with Cleopatra. The title includes free spins and wilds.
  • 88 Fortunes: This game is often a player's top pick for several reasons. It includes special features, plus big jackpot wins. The game is often added to promotions at online gaming sites.
  • Guns ‘N’ Roses: Based on the popular musical group, this game includes a rocking soundtrack, free spins, and additional features.
  • Divine Fortune: This slot is a classic title as well with a mythological theme. It includes several wild features, free spins, and more.  
  • Finn’s Golden Tavern: Join Finn at the tavern to try and trigger wilds, free spins, a multiplier meter, and more.

The site's layout is very plain, with a simple purple and black design. The home page features a welcome deal with lottery credits, slots, jackpot games, live dealer, and table games. The largest collection can be found under the slot game section.

Players can click on the info tab of each game to see the provider, a small description, and the RTP. The information is a great way to learn more about a game before playing.
