OVERVIEW
Betfair Casino New Jersey reviewed by John U on Mar 10, 2014.
Summary: Betfair casino in association with Caesars is open to New Jersey players only. The casino has a good combination of slot games and table games mean that Betfair's offering to New Jersey players in conjunction with Caesars is one of the best early options.
Rating: 4.0
INTRODUCTION

Of the 11 big casinos in Atlantic City, Trump Plaza probably faired the worst from the difficult economic times and in late 2014 it went into bankruptcy leaving Betfair with no partner for the New Jersey market. They have since partnered up with Caesars to offer Betfair casino to players inside the State of New Jersey.

The Betfair name carries considerable leverage worldwide with software suppliers for new games and advertising but they also bring considerable baggage. A simple web search will reveal several high profile bunglings including the infamous Happy Hour promo where, citing spirit of the bonus violations, they actually took funding back from players bank accounts and this has cast considerable doubt on their integrity. There have also been several questionable confiscations which Betfair have never answered for satisfactorally. New Jersey players are well protected from such fiascos by State Law however cleaning up their name would go a long way towards building a player base here.

SLOTS & GAMES

In the quest to attract players the variety and quality of slot games offered will be a key factor.

Betfair Slots

Betfair casino have met this challenge with 25 titles to choose from. The 11 IGT slots, which are also offered by several of the other New Jersey sites, are all solid favorites including Siberian Storm, Kitty Glitter and Monopoly Plus. These games provide a good balance of playtime and the chance for a big hit.

The Game Account Network have supplied Betfair casino with a nice variety of familiar titles from Ainsworth and Incredible Technologies. Games like Mustang Money, 50 Dolphins and Dragon lines feature stacked wilds and free spin scatters. Crazy Money has an instant win symbol and a unique Money Catch feature. Several titles from Barcrest, including Rainbow Riches and Arabian Charms, colorfully round out the slot selection and give Betfair casino the widest selection of quality slots currently available in New Jersey online gaming.

TABLE GAMES

Under the Table Games tab at Betfair casino there are 24 selections which include their 5 video pokers.

These video pokers are all single hand and have wagering from $.10 to $500 per hand. 3 versions of Roulette are available with bet sizes from $1 to $1000 per spin. One of their unique games, PokerBet, offers the player a chance to wager on a ficticious game of Texas Hold'em from a handicappers standpoint.

All the popular table pokers are here too including 3 Card, 4 Card, Mississippi Stud, Pai Gow and Ultimate Texas Hold'em and you will find bet sizes from $1 to $500 on these games. 4 versions of Blackjack with wagering from $1 all the way up to $10,000 per hand complete the table games available here and truly offer something for everyone.

CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Customer support issues at Betfair casino can be handled via 24 hour a day live chat, by e-mail or over the phone.

The staff seem well equipped to handle most problems and more complex issues which must be elevated are answered in a reasonable time frame. The stability of their platform and the absence of lag time on their games suggests Betfair casino uses the best network available. Technical problems are virtually non-existant.

Betfair casino is poised to become one of the top online casinos in New Jersey but they must ensure their reputation takes no further hits in this new market.
