Decisions, Decisions: Which Weekend Bonus At NJ Online Casinos Is Right For You?

Written By Daniel Smyth on January 18, 2019

This weekend, it’s all about options. Instead of New Jersey’s top online casino operators telling you what to play for, they’re giving you the choice. In turn, that means we’ve giving you the choice to pick up some added value in a way that suits you.

Of course, before you can make your move (or moves) at NJ online casinos, you need the facts.

With that being the case, it’s time for us to stop procrastinating and get on with telling you about this week’s top three promo picks.

Double delight inside Caesars Casino

We said this weekend was all about options and Caesars Online Casino makes that clear from the start.

Kicking off on Jan. 18 and coming to an end on Jan. 21, the Choose Your Bonus offer does exactly what it says on the box. Once you’ve logged into your Caesars account, you can choose one of the following:

  • A 100 percent casino deposit match worth up to $25 when you use the promo code CASINO25.
  • A 100 percent matched free bet up to $50 when you use the promo code FREEBET50.

Unfortunately, you can only choose one or the other. However, the upside is that you can clinch the deal that suits your betting preferences.

What’s more, you’ll only have to deposit a minimum of $10 to activate either bonus and wager 5X on slots, 10X on video poker, or 25X on anything else to clear your free casino credits (no playthrough on sports bet).

Three is the magic number for Golden Nugget

If you like where Caesars has gone with the idea of choice but you want more, Golden Nugget is the place to play.

As well as offering more in the way of bonus cash, this operator has three ways for you to boost your bankroll between now and 11:59 p.m. ET on Jan. 20.

As much as a belly stuffer as its name suggests, A Feast of Rewards at Golden Nugget online casino is your chance to claim one of three reload bonuses.

After logging into your account and visiting the “Available Bonuses” page, you can activate the offer of your choice and receive free credits instantly when you make the prescribed moves:

  1. Claim offer one and deposit $50 – $199 to receive a $15 bonus.
  2. Claim offer two and deposit $200 – $499 to receive a $50 bonus.
  3. Claim offer three and deposit $500+ to receive a $100 bonus.

In many respects, this promotion is very similar to what Caesars has going on this weekend. However, there are some important comparisons to make.

First off, you can get more for your money at Golden Nugget. With as much as $100 up for grabs, its pays to ply your trade here over the next few days if you’re a medium or high stakes player. However, the counter to this is that the playthrough is lower at Caesars if you play slots.

Instead of making a distinction between games, Golden Nugget’s promo requires you to wager 10X the amount of any bonus funds you receive. Therefore, if you’re a casual player, you’ll have an easier time clearing Caesars’ free credits.

Additionally, it’s worth remembering that the free sports bet at Caesars doesn’t have any wagering requirements. Even though you don’t get to keep your stake, any winning bets are paid out in real cash.

Therefore, if you’re in a position where you can only take one of these two offers, you need to decide if bigger bonuses or lower wagering conditions are more important.

100% Up To $1,500 + $10 Free + 200 Free Spins
UP TO $1,500 FREE
+ $10 On Signup
Free $10 On Sign Up +
100% Up To $1,500 On Deposit
Plus 200 Free Spins On 88 Fortunes
Use Bonus Code: PLAYBONUS

Four times the fun at Virgin Casino

Our final hot pick this week ups the ante once again.

In fact, it’s almost as if Virgin Casino knew what its peers were doing and decided to one-up them. What do we mean?

Well, from Jan. 18 to Jan. 21, there aren’t two or three deals to choose from but four at Virgin online casino!

  • Get a 10 percent playback on your total net loss for Friday, Jan. 18: Wager at least $50 and earn 10 percent playback worth up to $25 in bonus money.
  • Receive a 10 percent deposit match on Saturday, Jan. 19: Make a net deposit of $50 and wager through your net deposit once to receive a 10 percent deposit match worth up to $25 in bonus cash.
  • Earn 10X V* Points on Sunday, Jan. 20: Wager at least $15 on 90 ball bingo, $40 on slots or $100 on any other games to earn 10X extra V*Points up to 2,500 points.
  • Join a $1,000 Prize Draw on Monday, Jan. 21: Each time you wager $50, you’ll earn a prize draw ticket (maximum of five tickets). On Jan. 22, 100 winners will receive $10 in Bonus Money.

Unlike our other picks, you don’t have to choose just one bonus. If you’re ready and willing, it’s possible to take part in all of these giveaways. Basically, whichever ones you like the look of, you can go for.

The only thing to note other than the above conditions is that all credits are non-cashable but can be used to play for real prizes, which are yours to keep once you wager your bonus 1X.

As you can see, there’s not only plenty of choice this week but plenty of added value. However you like to bet, whatever the stakes you play for, there’s an option for you when you go online this weekend.
