With a land-based casino in place in Atlantic City, New Jersey, it was only a matter of time before Ocean Casino launched an online casino to go with its brick-and-mortar operation.
Ocean Casino first opened in 2012 under a different name, but was renamed to Ocean Casino after a rebranding in 2018, and within a few months it also launched the online casino, Ocean Casino NJ.
Let’s see how Ocean Casino has managed to implement its product into the online market.
|Well-known, trustworthy brand||App only available on Android|
|Impressive slots library|
|Easy to reach customer support|
New players will get a two-part welcome offer at Ocean Casino NJ. For the first one, players will get a 100 percent deposit match up to $500, with a minimum deposit of $50. This can be had by going to the promotions page on the site and clicking “opt-in”.
For the second offer, players will get daily offers for a week by using the prior days bonuses. Meaning, on Day 1, players will get 10 free spins on the Starburst Slot. If the player uses all 10, then on Day 2, players will get another 10 free spins and this time on Gonzo’s Quest. For the next few days, players will get a $10 pre-wager bonus on table games, 15 free spins, 15 more free spins and a $15 pre-wager on video poker/roulette.
Ocean Casino NJ offers a lot to new players.
Ocean Casino NJ is always changing up the promotional offerings. Here are some of the incumbent offers:
While there are no promo codes or bonus codes, most promotional offerings require players to opt-in on the promotions page to participate.
The registration process at Ocean Casino NJ is fast and easy to complete. The four-step process does ask for personal information of course as this is the type of information any reputable online casino would ask for. This is not only for taxation purposes, but also to protect your identity.
These are the steps and information required:
The software used at Ocean Casino NJ allows for no lag, buffering or other annoying/frustrating behaviors you might see at other online casinos. While the software used for the main site is proprietary, Ocean Casino NJ did team up with a top-tier game developer/software provider in GAN. GAN has worked with numerous other successful online casinos including FanDuel & bet365. Ocean Casino NJ brought in one of the very best software companies to ensure the experience was top of the line for its users.
In terms of game providers, you can find games from popular developers such as NetEnt and NextGen.
Currently, Ocean Casino NJ is available on desktop and mobile. However, the app is only available on Android at the moment. An iOS app is coming soon, so for now Apple users can play on the go using the mobile browser. The iOS app is definitely something to look forward to!
As mentioned, Ocean Casino NJ runs extremely smooth and there are no software issues we could find. Equipped with a cyan and white aesthetic, the interface at Ocean Casino NJ is easy to explore and navigate, too.
Starting at the top of the main site, there are links to the different types of games, as well as Staff Picks, Jackpots and the Promotions page. To the right of this is where the login option is, as well as a small speech bubble icon, which is for customer support.
Continuing down the page, there are plenty of other graphics for not only promotions, but the games themselves. On the hope page, the New Games and Most Popular Games are displayed. The other games can be found by clicking the icons at the top of the page.
When you click on a game type, there is a search option should you have a particular title in mind you’d like to play.
While it may be a bit simple, the interface here is straight to the point, which is a nice touch as it allows players to just get into playing the games.
While Ocean Casino NJ does not have Live Dealer games at the moment, there is still a healthy enough library to choose from:
Return to Player Percentages or “RTP” for short is basically this: What percentage of money is paid back over time to users? For example, if an RTP is 95 percent, that essentially means that for every dollar spent, $0.95 will be paid back over time.
At Ocean Casino NJ, there is a vast range here from title-to-title. Overall, the RTP range is in the mid-to-high 90s, but every title is different and we recommend players check this out prior to playing different titles. This includes table games as well.
With so many different titles to choose from, the betting limits at Ocean Casino NJ are vast and wide. Once again, we recommend checking each individual title. Some slots could be as low as $0.10 and some table games could be as low as $1. This differs from title-to-title, regardless of game type.
Ocean Casino NJ does have a VIP Program called the High Seas VIP Club. With this club, there are six tiers: Waveless, Delta, Cove, Bay, Sea and Ocean.
As with most VIP Programs, you ascend the ranks based on points, which are earned through playing on the site. Players will qualify for the first tier once they’ve reached 25,000 points in one month of playing.
Here is a breakdown of the cost per point at Ocean Casino NJ:
As mentioned earlier in the review, you can find the customer support page by clicking the speech bubble icon in the upper-right-hand corner of the page, next to the login/registration options.
These are the different options to contact Ocean Casino NJ customer support:
Ocean Casino NJ takes Responsible Gaming very seriously. To find the page, you will find it toward the bottom of the home page where there are numerous articles posted.
First, Ocean Casino NJ gives the 1-800-GAMBLER hotline, which is for those who are having issues with gambling.
Ocean Casino NJ also has in-house efforts to help with problematic gambling including limits on different things on its site. For instance, players can self-exclude themselves from the site, take a timeout and there are even limits on deposits, session, and spending which will activate immediately.
Next, Ocean Casino NJ has even more contacts to organizations and charities that can help you or someone you know with a gambling addiction.
While the lack of an iOS app is a downside, it appears Ocean Casino NJ has one on the way. Otherwise, Ocean Casino NJ is a rock-solid online casino for those in New Jersey to use. There are excellent promotional offerings, a great two-part welcome offer and some great game options. Once Ocean Casino NJ can establish an iOS mobile app and perhaps add in a few live dealer game titles, you will be hard-pressed to find another online casino that is different!
No, you do not have to be a resident, but at the time of playing and/or withdrawing, you must be located in the state of New Jersey.
