One of the first operators to make use of the newly-passed gambling legislation in New Jersey was Betfair, who have been operating in the state since 2013. Betfair initially partnered with Trump Plaza AC, but when that company went out of business they quickly formed a relationship with Golden Nugget AC with no pause in operation. Although not a household name in the US, they are a major player in Europe being part of the Paddy Power Betfair group.
In a short time, the site has expanded from a collection of around 50 games to now more than 300 slot games alongside casino table games such as roulette, blackjack and video poker as well as virtual sports betting.
A recent addition to the site is live dealer games playing blackjack, baccarat and Texas Hold'em poker; the live gaming tables are available from 10 am-4 pm ET. Betfair Casino is also home to the largest payout to date to in New Jersey: An online customer from Union County won $1,522,000 in February 2015. The win came from Let It Ride, a poker variant with the lucky gentleman winning with a Royal Flush with a side bet.
Betfair Casino Sign-up bonus
If you have never opened a Betfair account, you can try before you buy by taking advantage of their $10 sign-up bonus as long as you are 21 years of age and located in New Jersey. There are no wagering limitations with this bonus, but to withdraw any funds won via this method you must deposit $10 within 60 days of receiving the bonus.
Your first real money deposit is 100% matched by Betfair Casino up to a very generous $2500. This is subject to wagering requirements:
- 20x for slots.
- 40x for roulette
- 200x for all other table games
If, for example, you deposit $50, your $50 matched bonus would require you to place $1,000 worth of wagers on slot games before you could withdraw any winnings. This same deposit would require $2,000 worth of wagers for roulette and $50,000 for any other table games.
Betfair Casino Rewards Program
When playing real money games at Betfair you can start amassing Tier Points and Bonus Points as part of their VIP program which can be redeemed as cash or other benefits. The more you play the more you can earn
- Every $1 wagered on slots: 5 Tier Points and 5 Bonus Points
- Every $1 wagered on roulette, video poker and table games: 3 Tier Points and 3 Bonus Points
- Every $1 wagered on blackjack: 1 Tier Point and 1 Bonus Point
You can also earn money by referring your friends to Betfair Casino; once you are logged into your own account you can send them an email, which will give your friends a $10 bonus and yourself $25 when they make a deposit of $25 or more.
Betfair is one of the biggest online casino and sportsbook operators in the UK and Europe and has been making great strides since their arrival in the USA in 2013. You’ll find the site easy to use, and the recent addition of live dealers is a great boost to an already good site.
