The lack of live sports may have redefined March Madness, but what about April?

To the fans who like to have a little skin in the game, what are they to do? One of the most exciting times of the year for sports fans has turned into an utter drag, but NJ online sports betting apps are doing something to help.

Virtual sports betting

Many of New Jersey’s big online casinos and sportsbooks have started to include virtual sports to their menu of games.

Most online houses have included virtual sports betting options for NJ players to bet on round the clock. These contests usually take less time than live ones to finish.

There’s a variety of games available:

  • Most focus around racing (auto, thoroughbred, greyhound and motorcycle).
  • But some include other sports like soccer and football. 

We’ll run down some of the best options in virtual sports.

However, NJ Gambling Sites cautions that this is not an endorsement to gamble as a way to fight boredom during the coronavirus-related confinement. We always encourage responsible play.

Bet365

Bet365 has the most virtual sports available and combines it with maybe the best traditional book in the state. There’s a variety of racing games and sports available.

Bet365 stands out in-depth and breadth.

European-based, its menu includes major sports across the pond, including cricket and darts. We all know how much fun watching darts can be.

Golden Nugget

One of AC’s finest jewels on the Marina District offers players a variety of options, including two horse racing options. The site also has a highly rated soccer game. 

Golden Nugget also makes these games available on mobile devices. Go through a browser or the app to get started.

Caesars online

One of the biggest and most trusted names in gaming has four racing options and one virtual soccer on its online casino.

Players who have accounts with Caesars Sportsbook can get started immediately. Don’t worry; the real Caesar won’t mind.

BetMGM

Anyone who watched TV or rode mass transit in the Garden State has seen the black and gold BetMGM advertising for sports betting. The lions of the desert are just as committed to a quality virtual experience.

Like rival Caesars, BetMGM offers virtual horse, greyhound, motorcycle and auto racing options, along with soccer.

If anyone has used one of the many BetMGM offers and specials from the halted seasons, it’s easy to get involved.

Resorts

The original destination in AC, Resorts, celebrated 40 years of excitement last year on the Boardwalk. 

Resorts Sportsbook offers four racing and one soccer option that is available at some competitors. Fans of the online casino can log in and start playing.

PlaySugarHouse 

While the name has changed in Philadelphia (and now is closed), the virtual lights are still on in NJ. The first online casino to add a sportsbook in August 2018 keeps the action going with virtual sports.

Betfair Casino

FanDuel Sportsbook could be the biggest name in sports betting in the Garden State, but its partner Betfair online casino has NJ bettors covered while the games are on the sidelines.

Mohegan Sun

While it may be the best option up 95 in Connecticut, there’s no need to get in the car to get in on the action. Mohegan Sun now has online gaming in New Jersey.

  • Play soccer or watch the four racing options from the site.
  • The casino even has a quick way to flip between contests with just a click.

Borgata

The gold standard in Atlantic City has continued its sterling reputation online.

Borgata online casino offers the same five virtual sports as its sister sites BetMGM and Mohegan Sun.
