Ocean Resort Casino opened its virtual doors to Ocean Online Casino less than two weeks after cutting a big red ribbon to its property in Atlantic City.

Renovating the former Revel Casino was the first step in Ocean Resort’s entry into the New Jersey casino business.

Entering the NJ online gambling market, which will likely include sports betting in the future, was the logical next step.

Ocean Resort soft launches its new iGaming platform

The NJ gambling site opened for a modified schedule on July 10. It will continue running a shortened schedule until noon July 13 when it will begin operating 24 hours a day.

During the launch, players can take a spin on more than 50 online slots, several types of table games, and eight versions of video poker.

Online deposit options include credit cards, in person at the cage on the property, and PayNearMe. Expect more games and possibly more deposit options as the newest online casino moves into a full launch.

While Ocean Online Casino is offering several bonuses, one of the biggest perks of playing online may just be its loyalty program.

The versatile Ocean Premier loyalty program

The Ocean Resort Premier player’s club is a player-friendly, one-stop shop for collecting points whether a player is gambling online or at the property.

To quote Ocean Resort online casino: “The first New Jersey player’s club where the Ocean … meets the Net.”

Onsite at Ocean Resort Casino, players can redeem their points for:

  • Preferred access
  • Free parking
  • Suite upgrades
  • Comps

Additionally, Ocean Resort will match the tier level of a player’s reward card from any Atlantic City casino through Sept. 30, 2018.

The biggest perk to the Ocean Premier loyalty program may be the availability for a player to transfer points to their online account as real cash.

The cash will be unrestricted and is available for online wagering or to withdraw. This is a big perk because it is unusual for a casino to deposit cash into a player’s account without some sort of playthrough requirement.

And while the cash earned is unrestricted, like every loyalty program restrictions do apply. For instance, rewards, bonuses, comps, and free play offers do not have any cash value and may not be converted to cash or cashed out.

The reward program is in its infancy. As it grows, it will most likely evolve over time to offer players even greater rewards down the line.

A loyalty program that keeps on giving

Ocean Online Casino joins Hard Rock Online Casino as the two newest online gaming platforms in an already crowded New Jersey online casino industry.

Ocean Online Casino is offering several bonuses to attract new customers. Combine this with the casino’s versatile loyalty program and Ocean Resort online casino is off to a roaring start:

  • $125 Welcome Week Bonus which includes free play every day during a player’s first week online.
  • A 100 percent first deposit match of up to $10,000 for a player’s first 10 deposits.
  • Refer a Forever Friend where referring a friend earns you $10 and monthly residuals.
  • Suite Sounds of The Ocean offers winners of monthly leaderboards a six-night stay at Ocean Resort Casino or $1,000 in site credit.

Ocean Resort relishing in its underdog status

Many look at Ocean Resort Atlantic City as the underdog on the Boardwalk. The casino doesn’t seem to mind the designation, though. It is finding ways to differentiate itself from its competition by focusing on customer service and rewards.

The reviews on Trip Advisor alluded to the property having a rocky start. The most recent reviews, however, are giving the property five stars (out of five).

Ocean Resort isn’t trying to compete with anyone. It is playing its own game, and it is playing to win.

With its Ocean Premier loyalty program and a whole host of welcome bonuses to Ocean Online Casino, it is betting on players to join its game and win right along with them.
