List of New Jersey Online Poker Sites

Since online gambling became legal, the number of NJ online poker sites has already quickly grown. Many NJ poker sites involve partnerships between existing brick-and-mortar casinos with established poker sites. Well-known land based New Jersey casinos such as The Borgata, Caesars Entertainment, or the Trump Taj Mahal teamed up with poker sites so they will have a readymade product and do not need to develop their own platforms. Understanding the different partnerships can get tricky so let’s start out with an easy list of where to play NJ online poker.

New Jersey Poker SitesCurrent authorized New Jersey poker sites include:

  • 888 Poker
  • WSOP.com
  • PartyPoker NJ
  • BorgataPoker.com
  • GoldenNuggetPoker.com
  • Ucasino.com
  • BetfairCasino.com
  • Tropicanacasino.com

Now to the nitty-gritty for those who would like to know which sites work with which land based casinos. First of all, both 888 Poker and WSOP.com will each use permits from Caesars Entertainment. However, the companies have separate liquidity. 888 Poker involves a partnership between Caesars Entertainment Corp and the 888 Holding Group. While WSOP.com aka The World Series of Poker involves a joint venture between 888’s All American Poker Network (AAPN), Avenue Capital Group, and Wynn Interactive, LLC.

The Bwin Party Group partnered with the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa to operate PartyPoker NJ as well as BorgataPoker.com. Both BorgataPoker.com and PartyPoker NJ poker sites use the Bwin.party software and share the same player pool, but offer different promotions and bonuses.

GoldenNuggetPoker.com, run by the Golden Nugget Casino, opted to run its own poker site in New Jersey using the Bally Technologies software platform.

Both Ucasino.com and BetfairCasino.com chose to partner with the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino.  The Tropicana Casino & Resort partnered with GameSys platform to provide the online casino available at Tropicana.com.

Currently the BorgataPoker.com. and PartyPoker NJ network as well as WSOP.com represent the two largest online poker sites in New Jersey followed by 888 Poker and Ucasino.com.

A large number of companies tried and failed to obtain licenses to operate New Jersey poker sites online. Although the state rejected PokerStars, the company continues to pursue a license. In addition, 2UP Gaming PLC and Ainsworth Game Technology are seeking permission to operate. With New Jersey poker sites still in their early stages, players can only expect the industry to grow over time.
