Caesars online gambling customers in New Jersey can now deposit funds using an American Express card.

If that doesn’t sound all that exciting, note that this is something completely new to the industry. This would be a worldwide first for AmEx.

It’s one of the small pieces of news to come out of the first day of the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas this week.

This image on the Caesars Casino & Sportsbook deposit page confirms the operator does indeed allow AmEx credit card transactions.

And for now, Caesars is the only NJ sports betting or online gambling operator accepting AmEx (the option is not available for withdrawals).

How to make an American Express deposit at Caesars

Depositing funds via a credit card is far from a new concept. And adding funds using American Express card works exactly the same:

  • Login in to your account, click on “my account,” and select deposit.
  • Select MasterCard, Discover, Visa, or American Express credit card from the list of deposit methods.
  • Enter the amount and click continue.
  • Fill in the required details and click pay now to process.
  • Funds are available to use for both the casino and sportsbook.

Customers should check with the credit card company before making the transaction as the deposit could be considered a cash advance.

So the best bet is to check the cardholder agreement.

Caesars + other deposit methods

If you don’t have an American Express card, no worries.

Caesars has several options for NJ online casino depositing.

And with the sportsbook integrated with the casino app, funds are available for NFL and college football betting, slots, or any other type of wagering.

Here are the current deposit methods:

  • ACH (Electronic Check)
  • MasterCard/Discover/Visa/American Express
  • Online Bank Transfer
  • PayPal
  • CaesarsCasino.com prepaid card
  • Cash at the Caesars Atlantic City casino cage
  • PayNearMe

Neteller was previously available, but parent company Paysafe has discontinued its e-wallet payment option, at least in the United States.

Will more NJ gambling sites add the AmEx option?

Is American Express testing the NJ online gambling waters with Caesars? It’s hard to say, but as a first step, it has merit.

Here in the Garden State, online sports betting and gambling is a multi-billion-dollar industry. Since its inception in 2013, the industry has grown from just a few sites to a multitude of brands, apps, and websites.

And credit cards are an extremely common deposit method with NJ’s 17 sports betting apps. Plus, there are more than 20 online casino and poker offerings.

Whether or not AmEx expands beyond Caesars is an unknown. For now.
