Harrah's NJ Online Casino Review and Welcome Bonus Up to $300

By Lou Monaco

As one of the most reputable land-based casinos in the US, Harrah's Casino was able to successfully translate their safety, entertainment and overall high-level gaming experience to their online casino platform!


In 2013, the residents of New Jersey were treated to HarrahsCasino.com, one of the very first regulated iGaming casinos. While the site seems to be relatively new from the viewpoint of online gambling, it did not take long to join the list of the most trusted online casinos. Being the Harrah’s Casino’s online operating arm, HarrahsCasino.com relies on its affiliation with its reputable offline sister to deliver safety and a high-level gaming experience. Add to this affiliation a license from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement and you will understand why many New Jersey residents are at peace when playing at HarrahsCasino.com.


HarrahsCasino.com operates under the state-of-the-art software known as the Dragonfish Total Gaming Software, which is driven by 888.com. Sharing expertise from the WSOP.com poker room as well as all other sites operated by 888, including 888casino, this software is both industry specific and cutting edge. Overall, the interface is easy to understand. The site’s main operations occur in its browser-based format. Players don’t need to download or store any additional data on their computer to play. The software’s compatibility with a variety of browsers, including Firefox, Bing, Google Chrome, and Mac is great news for any online casino gambler in New Jersey.

Mobile Casino Site and App

For players who want to play on the go, Harrah’s Casino’s mobile site is awesomely designed. With dozens of games available for iOS gadgets, players don’t have to be in a specific location to place bets. The fact that punters can access and play money games on Harrah’s Casino’s mobile app is perhaps what makes this mobile site exceptional; this is not true with many online casinos in New Jersey. Yes, the mobile app does not guarantee access to all the features of the site (which is actually true for most, if not all, websites), but there is a reasonable array of games to choose from. Whether you’re looking to have fun or win some cash, you will still achieve what you want on the move.

Game Options

At HarrahsCasino.com, expect to find a large collection of roulette, video slots, and progressive slots. Though relatively lacking, the site’s video poker and blackjack options are enough to keep any online gambler sufficiently entertained. Some of the roulette versions available at HarrahsCasino.com include European roulette, American roulette, French roulette, High-limit American roulette, High-limit European roulette, and High-limit French roulette.

Slots boast the largest selection, and you can filter the games by their payline number. Raging Rhino, Gold Fish, Super Jackpot Party, Ultimate Genie, Casino Reels, Zeus, Kronos, and Panda Manga are some of the slots you will find at HarrahsCasino.com. Some of these slots feature a progressive jackpot, giving any lucky player the opportunity to win a life-changing amount of cash. Other slots include Black Knight II, Bella Italia, Doctor’s Orders, Euro Reels, and Dino Jackpot Stampede; the list seems to be endless, and we can go on and on.

Blackjack players will be happy to discover that the site offers three games to choose from, including European blackjack, Premium blackjack, and Classic blackjack. For video poker enthusiasts, Double Bonus Poker, Double Double Bonus Poker, Bonus poker, and Jacks or Higher are available.

User Experience

Opening a player account couldn’t be easier. As a matter of fact, the process involves only two steps: creating the main account and depositing funds. Once you’re on the welcome page of HarrahsCasino.com, you will see the “Open Account” button in the top right corner. All you need to do is click on the button, and the process is a breeze; you will only be a few minutes away from placing your bet. The site is easy to use and navigate, making it ideal for both new and seasoned players. The games on the site are easy to access, and they feature thrilling graphics that give every player a reason to come back.

Casinos Bonuses and Promotions

Like any great online casino, HarrahsCasino.com offers bonuses and promotions to encourage players to log in and play. A welcome bonus of 100% on a first deposit up to $300 is available, which comes with specific wagering requirements. Desktop users reading this review will be pleased to hear that they are entitled to 20 free spins; this is not the case for mobile users.

However, there is the Total Rewards Program for mobile users, and each tier credit offered equals one reward credit. Every 100 reward credits can be redeemed for $1 (hard cash). The program consists of four levels (Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and 7-Star). Your level as a player depends on how much you gamble at a particular time.
