Summary

Betfair is hands-down one of the most successful online gambling sites in the world, so it's little surprise that the company has found success in New Jersey despite being a relative unknown to online gamblers in the Garden State. That lack of familiarity is changing in a hurry thanks to the broad suite of games, high-quality customer service, and solid bonus value Betfair offers players.

BetfairCasino.com software

online casino review Betfair NJAll of the offerings on BetfairCasino.com are web-based. There doesn’t appear to be any kind of downloadable client other than mobile versions (more on that below).

However, the navigation menus for the games are extremely intuitive and allow players to easily search for their favorite types of games, even down to the number of lines to bet in different slot games.

The site has iOS and Android apps available. Initially the app was somewhat lacking, although it supports approximately 120 slot titles, as well as a smattering of video poker and table games.

The initial step in the signup process is a web-based form that must be completed fully.

Players must submit their name, address, telephone number, and last four digits of their Social Security number. However, to access any of the games, the website insists on installing location tracking software in order to ensure that wagering is occurring within the state lines of New Jersey.

Betfair New Jersey table games

  • 12 different games available, with multiple variations for blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and video poker.
  • 7 Betfair-exclusive games, including the featured EZBaccarat. EZBaccarat is only baccarat game online that does not shuffle after each hand and allows skillful players to track card patterns.
  • 7 mobile-friendly table games, including five video poker variations, roulette, and one blackjack offering.

Betfair Casino slots

  • 228 different slot offerings from which to choose
  • 18 Betfair-exclusive games
  • Easy-to-navigate tab menu allows for speedy game selection
  • 120 games are compatible with mobile devices

Banking with Betfair

Betfair offers players nine different options for deposit and two options for withdrawal. All of these selections are standard for online gaming, with one notable exceptions:

  • Wire Transfer– Players can transfer funds directly from their bank account and Betfair’s account. Wiring information is provided on the site. Betfair will cover any fees (as a site credit) for deposits over $100.

Other depositing options include MasterCard/Visa credit or debit cards, ACH, Betfair Prepaid Card, Skrill, PayNearMe, and cash at the Golden Nugget Casino cage in Atlantic City.

Betfair Casino New Jersey support

Betfair can be reached with questions using the email, telephone, or live chat options. Live chat presents what is likely the most immediate option for help.

I was connected with “George” within seconds of logging into the system. While more intricate questions might be better served through email, George was able to respond quickly, and the system worked without any hitches.

Both the live chat and telephone options are available from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. EST, which gives players ample opportunity to reach out to Betfair customer service.

Betfair Casino Updates January 2018

Betfair has amped up their first deposit bonuses for its NJ online players. New players to the site not only get $30 free just for signing up (with code PLAY30), but now they can get a 100% match deposit up to the sum of $2,500! This makes Betfair’s first-deposit bonus the most lucrative in the New Jersey market.

Use that bonus to check out their new games: Smash the Pig—with two bonus games and a Luck Meter, Heidi’s Bier Haus—with a Tapper feature than randomly turns reels into Stacked Wilds, Planet of the Apes—where you get two games for the price of one and double the bonus games, Icy Wilds—featuring the impressive Aurora Borealis in the background as well as Stacked Symbols, Icy Wilds and Polar Bear Free Spins, and Secrets of Christmas—providing holiday gifts to good boys and girls year round.

BetfairCasino.com overview

Playing at BetfairCasino.com will afford you a wide variety of options for both slot and table game play. The selection for table games is especially of note, with the site emphasizing many options for lesser-known games (at least to Western players) like Baccarat.

Given the company’s long history of success in the European market and a player-friendly promotional structure, there is no reason that Betfair should not be a top stop for New Jersey online gambling fans.

New slot games added to Betfair

Gypsy Moon: seek your fortune within the Gypsy’s cards! This mystical 5-reel slot allows you to take advantage of its gamble feature, and there’s 243 pay lines packed with Scatter Symbols and Wilds to turn every spin into a magical adventure.

Emoji Planet: If you enjoy internet culture, you’re going to love this 6-reel slot from NetEnt. Comes with a Cascading Reels feature and Wilds.

The Legend of Shangri La – Cluster Pays: the backdrop, calming music, and sound effects make this a particularly mesmerizing and unique slot game. Developed by NetEnt and launched in September 2017, it features tons of exciting new features such as the random substitution symbols, a Nudge Reel, Sticky Re-Spins, and a Cluster Mechanism which replaces regular payline combinations. An absolute must-play.
