Party Poker Casino Bonus

Players reviews There is a solid $25 welcome bonus just for registering, and no deposit is required to enjoy this bonus. The $25 is broken down as follows: $5 for poker tournaments and sit-and-go events, $10 for poker cash games, and $10 for video slots and jackpot games. There’s only a 1x wagering requirement on the slot bonus, which is favorable–especially for not having to make a deposit.

The first-deposit bonus is where things get weird. You can get a 100% match on your first deposit of up to $600. But instead of receiving the bonus credits in your account and going through a playthrough process before you can withdraw those funds, the bonus credits are added to your account while you play the real money you deposited. For every $1 wagered, you earn 1 point. Points can be converted to bonus cash at a rate of 8 points per $1 for casino games and 4 points per $1 at poker tables.

It’s not a bad bonus by any means, but it’s not as straightforward as other sites, especially for veteran players in New Jersey who are used to 100% match and playthrough requirements.

Bonus and Promotions Score: 3.5

PartyPoker Casino Promotions

We’re sad to report that there is no classic “casino welcome bonus” available at Party Poker. Instead, there is a quite convoluted take on the traditional deposit match.

Most online casino deposit match bonuses work like this: 

  1. Player makes a cash deposit
  2. Casino adds a percentage of this deposit (usually 100%) as “bonus cash” into the player’s wallet
  3. Players wager this “bonus cash” a number of times. 
  4. Any remaining bonus cash can be withdrawn as profit!

Unfortunately Party Poker makes it far more complicated. Players can receive up to 100% of their deposited amount as bonus cash, but they have to wager first. For every $1 wagered, for example, players earn 1 point. Every 4 points earned at the poker table can be converted to $1 bonus cash; for casino games, it’s every 8 points. 

This can be repeated up to $600 maximum. The $25 no deposit bonus is split as follows: 

  • $5 for tournaments and sit & go events
  • $10 for poker cash games 
  • $10 for video slots and jackpot games (1x wagering requirement)

All in all, this is a very clunky and unusual bonus. It seems like the casino has used this approach to avoid traditional wagering requirements – however, players understand wagering requirements, while this is just confusing. Compared to any competitors, this is a weak bonus. 

Casino Promotions

Unfortunately there are no other casino promotions available at Party Poker NJ. Customer support told us that some promotions were invisible to non-members – however, even with our own Party Poker account, we couldn’t see any new offers. 

Deposits and withdrawals

Players reviews We believe that PartyPoker Casino has the most available options for depositing and withdrawing among any casino in New Jersey. Along with the standard Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal, you can also choose from Discover, American Express, Play+, PayNearMe, Skrill, VIP Preferred e-check, online banking, Apple Pay, and cash at the Borgata Casino cage in Atlantic City.

Deposits & Withdrawals Score: 5.0

PartyPoker Casino Payment Methods

Banking at Party Poker is very straightforward. There is a sufficiently broad number of payment options without over complicating matters, and the relevant information (deposit amounts, timelines, etc) are clearly shared on the website.

Party Poker Casino Games Selection

Players reviews  PartyPoker features one of the largest libraries of slot machines that we’ve seen in an online casino in NJ, as over 1,000 titles are available. On the slots page, featured slots are listed first and are followed by the latest releases, top exclusive games, and top games by brand. You can also sort by jackpot slots, exclusives, and Slingo. Plenty of blackjack and roulette titles are available, along with craps, baccarat, and other table games like Let it Ride and Three Card Poker, along with video poker titles. Live dealer games are available along with PartyPoker’s full lineup of cash poker games and tournaments. You can play virtual sports games here too, but the lack of a sportsbook is what’s keeping it from a perfect score.

Game Selection Score: 4.5

If Party Poker does one thing right, it’s the large and impressive suite of games available to players. They tick all the major boxes of a good online casino, providing depth and variety in equal measure. 

PartyPoker Casino Games

Slots

The video slots collection at Party Poker is presented by a host of big-name developers, including NetEnt, Red Tiger, IGT, and DGC. There are hundreds of unique titles and a handy search bar so players can look for specific games. Unfortunately, players cannot filter by game type/theme/developer, which is always a useful function. 

Party Poker Casino NJ Jackpot

Jackpots

The range of jackpot games at Party Poker is not only vast: it’s also extremely lucrative. Players can cash in literally millions of dollars by winning a single jackpot. The games range from supermassive progressive jackpots (currently over $2.5m) to mega jackpots (up to ~$1 million) and many “mega drop” jackpots, which are won very regularly for thousands of bucks a pop. 

Jackpot games are an afterthought at most online casinos, but Party Poker does them justice with a host of potentially life-changing games available. 

Table games

Featuring around 50 games across blackjack, baccarat, roulette and poker variations, the RNG table games selection at Party Poker is pretty sweet. There’s enough variety to keep avid table games fans happy, though of course the biggest allure of Party Poker is its poker scene. 

Poker

As the name suggests, this casino is mad about poker. There is everything from rapid sit-and-go tournaments to every level of cash game and huge, full-scale knockout tournaments. In order to enjoy the huge range of game modes and poker tournaments available, players will need to download the Party Poker software. 

Live Casino 

Players at Party Poker get to enjoy 15 of the best live dealer games that Evolution Gaming has to offer. As the world leader in the live dealer format, Evolution’s games are top class – incredibly immersive atmosphere, veteran dealers, varied game modes and cutting-edge technology.

Party Poker Casino App

Players reviews As impressive as the game library is, you can only play live poker cash games and tournaments on PartyPoker’s mobile app. You can play slots and table games on a mobile device, but you’ll have to use a web browser to go to the website and log in that way. While this does work, it always feels more reliable to play online games on an app.

Casino App Score: 2.0

While Party Poker introduced New Jersey apps at the end of 2021, these currently only allow players to enjoy poker tournaments and games. There is currently no app (for Apple or Android) that allows players to play casino games, fund their account or activate casino bonuses. This is unfortunate because, as much as players enjoy in-browser play, many appreciate a reliable mobile app even more. 

Reputation and History

Players reviews PartyPoker has been in business since 2001 and was part of the online poker boom in the middle to late part of that decade. It is in business around the world and in the U.S. in the State of New Jersey. It has partnered with land-based Borgata Casino in Atlantic City to handle in-person inquiries and transactions.

Responsible Gaming

Players reviews The “Responsible Gaming” link that’s in the upper-right corner of the page brings you to PartyPoker’s Responsible Gaming page. It defines problem gambling, goes over the warning signs, and provides phone and internet resources for those needing assistance. You can also set personal limits or self-exclude yourself from playing on the site.

Responsible Gaming Score: 5.0

Like all online casinos, Party Poker has a page dedicated to the warning signs, the risks of problem gambling, and links to various resources designed to help players get ahead of, or recover from, a gambling problem. The casino also raises the “Responsible Gaming” text and banners across the site, which is an extra touch of visibility which we liked.

Party Poker Online Support

Players reviews The FAQ page is easily accessible through the “Help & Contact” link at the top of the page and is comprehensive, but finding actual live support is difficult. There is a live chat option, but it’s not very helpful. We would recommend phone (844-864-5295) or email ([email protected]) options instead.

Customer Service Score: 2.5

The Party Poker support team is one of the least helpful (and most frustrating) we’ve dealt with. During live chat, players are not only forced to wait up to 10 minutes for a response to each message, but the answers are usually vague and unhelpful, with weak English and largely incoherent sentences. The support team can be contacted using the following other methods: 

Conclusion

There’s no denying that Party Poker is, overall, a good online gaming platform. We only wish its promotions and customer support were up to this standard – in a good casino, these stand out as far below average. 

But if you’re only here for the games, then sign up to Party Poker and try to cash in on one of those enormous prizes!
