Hard Rock Atlantic City casino operations are temporarily suspended.
All Atlantic City casinos closed Monday night in an effort to minimize the spread of the coronavirus.
Hard Rock Online Casino NJ, however, is open.
The online casino features live slots, the only ones currently available in the gambling world.
New Jersey customers who have yet to give them a spin, may suddenly be inclined to do so. The chance at winning $30-$2,000 in bonus sounds pretty good.
There is a total of $15,000 in bonus cash up for grabs during Hard Rock’s live slots leaderboard promotion. It runs through March 29.

Hard Rock’s online casino revenue
Hard Rock unveiled its exclusive live slots studio during a Feb. 12 press conference.
It seems the new product is uplifting the operator’s bottom line. The latest online gaming revenue figures released by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement show that Hard Rock earned $2.82 million for February.
For comparison purposes, January’s number came in at $2.46 million.
Hard Rock is likely looking at an even stronger March.
Having customers compete for $15,000 in bonus cash may provide temporary mental relief from COVID-19 halting normal life as we know it.
