Adding to all of the appeal of the booming NJ sports betting options, plenty of NJ online casinos helped give players a bump as we headed into the New Year. These types of promotions are a great way to get yourself acclimated with a new online casino, all while taking on an additional bonus for your bankroll.

Virgin Online Casino offered a casino cash back bonus

For all wagers within a certain time period, Virgin offered cash back bonuses. From December 28th to December 30th, Virgin offered a cash back bonus to players who wagered in the casino and lost during specified time periods. In order to be eligible for this promotion, players needed to wager a minimum of $10 during the following time blocks (all times Eastern):

  • 6-7 P.M. to earn 20% cash back bonus up to $20;
  • 7-8 P.M. to earn 15% cash back up to $20;
  • 8-9 P.M. to earn 10% cash back bonus up to $20.

Casino players who didn’t lose lose any money during their gameplay wouldn’t be eligible for the play back bonus, but that’s a result of a net win. A loss during any of those time periods resulted in a play back bonus, which could be claimed in any of the time periods during the three-day span of the promotion. All play back bonuses were eligible to be wagered in the casino, and were available for withdrawal once the amount has been played through once.

BetFair Casino gave players a chance to earn back cash for wagering on certain slots

While playing BetFair Casino’s “Game of the Week”, which was IGT’s Fantastic Fireworks, a slot game that offers a five reel game with 10 paylines, and a minimum wager of .20 cents per spin, players earned $5 cash back for every $250 wagered each day.

There are plenty of great features included with this slot game, and BetFair Casino offers a jackpot of up to 200X your wager. Additional features include free spins, Cannon Bonus, Wild Super, and a Rocket Meter, which gives additional payouts on a consecutive chain of winning spins.

Best of all, this bonus was given out in cash, and was not subject to any wagering requirements or rollover.

Golden Nugget bonuses included 1,000 different prizes for casino players

From December 28th to 11:59 P.M. on December 31st, players had the opportunity to win their share of over 1,000 different prizes! These prizes included anything from bonus cash to a free trip to Atlantic City! In order to earn your way into the sweepstakes, players needed to click on the “Available Bonuses” offer in the Golden Nugget casino.

For every $100 wagered, players would earn an entry into the sweepstakes, and the wager amount was weighted depending on the game played. Slots were the most heavily weighted play, as 100% of the dollar amount counted toward the $100 goal. Table games, blackjack, roulette, and video poker were calculated at 20%.

There were 1,000 winners in total:

  • First place taking winning a $3,000 spa resort getaway to their choice of resort in Atlantic City;
  • Second and third took home $500 in bonus cash;
  • Fourth-12th won $200;

All bonuses required a 1x rollover of the awarded amount, and could be withdrawn after the playthrough was completed.
