With the growing prevalence of NJ online casinos, it has never been more important for NJ residents to learn about online casino safety and responsible gambling. So, if you’re thinking about placing a few wagers on a mobile casino and taking advantage of those New Jersey casino bonuses, be sure to follow these online casino tips.


Set a Budget


Setting a gambling budget, also known as a bankroll, is important for several reasons.


Firstly, it allows you to keep track of how much you are winning and losing, thus providing some much-needed clarity. Gamblers tend to remember their successes but forget their failures, and this can send them down a slippery slope. By keeping track, they will always have an accurate picture of their gambling history.


Secondly, it ensures that you’re not losing more than you can afford to lose, which could cause problem gambling.


A budget should be set before you make your first deposit and it should represent a weekly or monthly amount that you can afford to lose. Once that limit has been reached, don’t exceed it until the next budget period begins.


Make Sure The Site is Regulated


Not all gambling sites are regulated. Just because it exists, claims to be regulated, and accepts your deposits, doesn’t mean it’s legitimate.


Check the site and make sure it’s legally allowed to operate in New Jersey, or wherever else you reside. If you live in a state where gambling is tightly controlled and online gambling is illegal, you’re out of luck. There are some workarounds, but none of them are recommended and all of them could lead to you losing a lot of money.


Use Your Bonuses Wisely Screen Shot 2021-12-29 at 18.31.53


Most mobile casinos and online casinos offer bonuses. Competition is fierce, and so they offer big perks and rewards to entice you through their virtual doors.


Always check the terms and conditions and maximize the bonus by playing the games that pay the most and clear your wagering requirements quickly.


The more bonuses that you can collect, the better. Keep your eyes on the promotions section and sign up for the newsletter to receive regular offers.


Stick with High-RTP Games


Not all games are weighted equally and some will give you a much better chance of winning than others.


For instance, many slot machines have an RTP of between 95% and 97%, which is equivalent to a house edge of between 3% and 5%. Blackjack, on the other hand, can have a house edge of less than 1% while Baccarat is a little over 1%.


Roulette is another great example. If you stick with French Roulette and European Roulette, you’ll be playing with a house edge of less than 2.7%. But if you opt for American Roulette, which uses two 0 spaces instead of one, the house edge will nearly double, thus halving your chances of success.


By sticking with the games that have the highest RTPs and the lowest house edges, you can greatly increase your chances of getting a payout.
