Ocean Resort Launches its Online Casino in New Jersey

Ocean Resort officially joined the online gambling market in New Jersey on Wednesday. The second of the state's two new casinos to launch an online platform, Ocean Resort currently offers six versions of video poker but no peer-to-peer poker vertical; table games, and roughly 50 slot-style games.

The new platform will remain in a “soft launch” phase through the weekend, with 24-hour availability set to launch tonight. In addition to real-money games, it offers free simulated gaming within the same system. More games are also coming in the future, but Ocean Resort has yet to commit to offering an online poker vertical.

Ocean Resort opened their online casino games with a few promotions to attract new players as well as one a couple of long-running promotions designed to build loyalty. New players are lured in with a $125 welcome week bonus while another promotion offers to match a player's first ten deposits up to $10,000.

To build loyalty, the site is offering a refer-a-friend payout that continues to pay monthly residuals. Ocean Resort's most practical online promotion is the one that encourages crossover into their physical casino. The online player who tops the monthly leaderboard on the site will win a six-night stay at the resort or $1000 in site credit.

The platform is powered by GAN, which includes an integrated reward program between the brick-and-mortar and online properties. The crossover loyalty program is called Ocean Premier and it links a player's online activity to real-world rewards like free parking, resort upgrades, and gaming comps.
