New Jersey is the foremost state in the United States to legalize online gambling, and is the third state to permit online poker gaming. This article offers tips and guides on how you can make the most of your New Jersey online gambling.

Stay away from unregistered sites

Online sites are sprouting out everywhere but don't get too excited trying out new ones right away. Do your research first to make sure these are duly-registered and in compliance with New Jersey online gambling regulations.

Since online gambling is illegal outside Atlantic City, web-based establishments must host their servers inside the city, and be in partnership with licensed local casinos. Check out the government-issued list of approved Internet gaming sites. Businesses listed here are monitored by the Casino Control Commission, and the Division of Gaming Enforcement.

Select the right establishment

Now comes the time to pick out the best site to create your account. With an array of wonderful options all offering attractive deals, think about your main objective and interest. Are you after the best payouts, the highest deposit and/or sign-up bonuses, the biggest stakes, or the one with the most variety of games?

If you are a poker lover, you may wish to look for sites that offer non-stop action all day and the biggest tournaments. These are sites that have a huge number of players.

Alternatively, if you are a rewards-seeker, there are establishments that allow customers to earn points from playing in both their land-based and online establishments.

Sign-up for an account

Under New Jersey online gambling law, only residents and/or tourists physically located within the state can play. So make sure you are located within the state boundaries before creating an account. Upon joining, you will be asked to make a deposit to a secure account. If the site you have chosen is from the list of approved and regulated establishments, you would have more confidence depositing your money. Transactions can be done via credit card, bank wire, eCheck or cash deposit (for sites with land-based casinos).

Claim your payout

When it is time to request your winnings, the amount will be credited to the same secure account you used in making a deposit. There are several payout options available. Although the process varies per site, it would typically take a day or two for the casino to approve your fund request and about five business days to have the amount delivered to you.
