When Ocean online casino first opened its doors to the NJ masses in early June — just days after Ocean Resort Casino cut the ribbon on its land-based casino in Atlantic City — it was our impression that the site would struggle against its more experienced competitors, all of which offered more games, better promotions, stronger payment processing, and … Is it up to speed with the best NJ online gambling sites? There are a few kinks to work out certainly, like the Divine Fortune jackpot showing as over $500,000 from the game lobby (we wish), when it’s actually only about $26.5k, and the occasional failure by geolocation services to recognize a player gambling from within New Jersey, but overall it’s about as polished as one might expect from a product powered by GAN.
In the past three months, Ocean has added a tidal wave of new features to its online casino, culminating today in the addition of a much-anticipated Android app. Let it be known that going live on Android doesn’t give Ocean a leg up on the competition, as every single NJ online casino supports apps for both Android and i OS-powered devices. And for what it’s worth, Ocean’s app delivers, offering nearly 80 slots, a handful of video poker games, Blackjack, Baccarat, and Roulette.
Worth noting is that Ocean still does not offer an i OS app, but that one is coming soon.
Historically, it’s been pretty common for the launch of i OS-powered casino and sports betting apps to trail behind the debut of their Android counterparts by a few days or weeks, a good recent example being the William Hill NJ sports betting app, which went live on Android first before debuting on i OS in late September.
Ocean online casino has done the promotional gods proud, now offering a bevy of recurrent and one-off offers.
Not a single one of these offers are pushovers, adding tons of player value to what is already a site that offers gamblers better odds than they’ll find at brick-and-mortar casinos in Atlantic City.
Most notable is that Ocean frequently offers reload bonuses.
On its own, that’s not a monumental deal, as most NJ online casinos dip their toes in this particular pool, but what differentiates Ocean’s offers is the monetary cap, which commonly reaches over $1,000.
For instance, its latest Columbus Day Deposit Bonus is a 50% bonus match on deposits up to $2,500, for a bonus cap of $1,250.
That monetary amount rings closer to what players might find for a welcome bonus than a reload.
Granted, there are a couple drawbacks to Ocean’s reload offers, most of which are embedded in the dreaded fine print.
For one, players have to meet a steep 20x wagering requirement on slots, or 40x on roulette, or 200x on table games and video poker.
