New players at 888 Sportsbook NJ are currently granted a $10 no-deposit welcome bonus. Upon registration, new users can claim their bonus through email. Bonus funds must be wagered within five days of being credited to the account.
Both the registration bonus and any resultant winnings go into a player’s account as bonus funds. These funds must be wagered six times within five calendar days from the award date, and playthrough requirements can only be met with wagers that meet minimum odds set by 888.
In addition, new players can receive a one-time 100 percent match on their initial deposit. The minimum deposit is $10, and the maximum is $500.
Aplayer must play through their initial deposit once, including having all bets settled, to claim the bonus. Once the bettor receives the bonus, they must play through the bonus funds six times over a 30-day period to be able to make a withdrawal, and all bets made with the bonus funds must carry at least -200 odds.
Players who make withdrawals before meeting the bonus requirements forfeit their bonuses.
Powered by 888.com, 888 NJ Sportsbook was among the first to bring sports betting to players in the state after the Supreme Court ruled that states could legalize sports betting within their borders in 2018.
The site offers players the chance to wager on the most popular sports in the United States and more. The new sportsbook is a partnership between 888 and Caesars Interactive Entertainment.
The process of registering a new account is straightforward. There is a “Sign Up” link in the upper right-hand portion of the screen on every page of the website. If you download the app — more on that below — you will be promoted to create an account.
The link leads to a popup screen where players need to create a username and password and provide some basic information about themselves, such as name, email address and physical address, through a series of three short forms. Upon completing the third form, the player should hit “Submit.”
Submitting the forms triggers a welcome email, although it may take some time to arrive. The email includes a link at which the player can claim the no-deposit bonus. Players may only claim the bonus if they are physically located in New Jersey at the time.
Note that new players need to download software that enables the site to verify their location on the website (this is not necessary for the app).
This service can recognize most VPNs, so those hoping to circumvent the laws by using their account from out of state may be out of luck.
Players may choose to access the site directly from mobile phones or tablets. Both iOS and Android apps are also available, and the links to download them are situated at the bottom of every page on the site.
All of the markets found on the desktop site are also available on the apps, so players need not miss an opportunity to place a wager while on the go.
Players at the new sportsbook can choose among seven different deposit methods. For those who live near Atlantic City, the most convenient may be cash at cage, which enables bettors to complete transactions in cash at Caesars Atlantic City Casino. Players wishing to use this method are required to present their photo ID and account information.
Other popular options are Visa, Mastercard and PayPal. For those looking for alternatives, Neteller, wire transfers, and bank transfers are also available.
Although all of the methods available for deposits can also be used for withdrawals, the process can be more complicated.
Players may be required to provide authorization or documentation before their withdrawals are processed. Multiple withdrawals through the same method over a short period may also be handled as a single transaction.
Unlike many other sites, 888 NJ Sportsbook does not run a loyalty program that rewards players with each wager. It does, however, offer daily and weekly challenges.
Daily challenges are completed when a player bets $50 or more on a sport with minimum odds of -200. Upon completing a challenge, the bettor receives a $5 bonus the following day.
Finishing three daily challenges between any Monday and the following Sunday completes a weekly challenge, for which the player receives a $10 bonus the next day. These bonuses come with a 6x playthrough requirement over the following seven days.
When it comes to sports betting in America, football is king, so it’s no surprise that the site’s other running promotion focuses on it. Throughout the NFL season, a player who bets $20 on an NFL parlay in a single weekend (Thursday-Sunday) receives a $5 instant bonus the following day.
To qualify, the parlay must include at least three teams and carry odds of at least ½.
Players looking to bet on sports that are popular in North America are sure to find what they want.
The site offers markets on all of the major American sports leagues, including:
Soccer is also well represented, with the Danish, Slovak, Chinese, and other relatively minor leagues joining major European and Latin American counterparts. At the time of writing, around 20 sports are listed on the 888 NJ app and site. However, the company plans to add additional sports to this selection.
On top of the most popular markets in each sport, players can also expect a plethora of additional betting options. The number available depends on the sport, the competition, and even the teams involved, but the overwhelming majority of soccer matches feature over 100 pre-match markets. Some top leagues average well over 250; the 125 markets available for NFL games pale by comparison.
For most regular season baseball games, bettors can expect 45-50 options. One area in which prop bets are harder to come by is combat sports, with many UFC matchups limited to single-digit markets.
The 888 NJ Sportsbook provides a multitude of multi-bet options, which can only be seen upon adding multiple selections to one’s bet slips. This triggers a popup menu that features three tabs: Singles, Parlay and Round Robins. Round Robins offer players the opportunity to assemble several combinations of teams on the bet slip.
Teasers are a popular betting option, but some players may find them difficult to locate as they are listed at the bottom of the Parlay tab. As of writing, only six, six-and-a-half, and seven-point teasers are available, and they are only offered on American football.
Teasers may also become available for basketball, and the site may add more point options as it grows.
Players can place bets on many events that offer pre-match betting. Some sports and events, such as golf, are excluded.
All regular season and postseason major professional sports leagues in the United States feature live betting markets. To confirm the availability of live betting on a particular event in advance, players should locate it in the betting menu. The word “Live” is included next to events for which live betting is available.
Players looking for live events can find them by clicking on “Live Right Now” at the top of the sidebar.
