The PlayNJ Team

ADVERTISING DISCLOSURE

Our funding comes via advertising relationships with NJ’s regulated online operators. In some cases, when you visit a regulated online casino or poker site via the links available on PlayNJ.com, we may receive financial compensation from the casino or poker site. We may also sell advertising space to various partners.

Our policy regarding advertisers is simple:

  • Advertisers have no say over the content on PlayNJ.com.
  • Advertisers cannot “buy” a better review on PlayNJ.com. Our reviewers are completely independent of the ad sales side.
  • Our goal, first and foremost, is to provide credible, objective information about the regulated online casino options in New Jersey. We believe that this goal naturally produces the best situation for casino consumers and operators, and therefore for us as a business.
  • Any paid advertisements on PlayNJ will be clearly marked as such or appear in a format (such as banner ads) that are widely understood to be advertisements.
