FAQs

How can I withdraw my winnings? And how long does the withdrawal process take?

To withdraw money from a BetAmerica account, players can use an electronic bank transfer, Neteller, Pay+, a check in the mail, or in-person at the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, or the Presque Isle Downs in Erie, Pennsylvania. In-person will be immediate, and a check in the mail can take up to three weeks. The other withdrawal options will take two to five business days.

Are my winnings taxable?

All New Jersey online casino winnings must be reported to the IRS when you complete your annual federal tax return. This is done on Form 1044. You will tally up your total winnings and report them under the “other income” section. The winnings must also be added to your state tax return and are taxed according to your tax bracket.

How do I get started?

The sign up process is very simple for BetAmerica and is essentially the same for all New Jersey and Pennsylvania online casinos. The first step for new users will be to enter in some generic personal information, create a username and password, and then run a geolocation search to ensure that they are in New Jersey or Pennsylvania. There is no sign up, no deposit bonus available for this site.

How do I deposit and is there a minimum?

To deposit, users will have the option of Visa/Discover/Mastercard, PayNearMe at a 7-Eleven, Skrill, electronic bank transfer, Neteller, Pay+, or in-person at the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, or the Presque Isle Downs in Erie, Pennsylvania. There is a $10 minimum on all deposits.

Is there a deposit bonus?

Players in New Jersey can use the promo code BETCASINO1000 for a first-time deposit 100% match bonus up to $1,000, and players in Pennsylvania can use the promo code PLAY125 for a first-time deposit 100% match bonus up to $125. These bonuses have a playthrough rate of 10x to withdraw the funds.

Pros

Despite not having the best selection of table games, BetAmerica has an expansive collection of slots with close to 375 right now. They are also adding more almost monthly to the site. BetAmerica even has more than two dozen progressive slots; some are fixed and some are true progressives. This is a site basically built for players that love slots. In addition to their slots, the site has one of the biggest collections of live dealer games of any online casino in New Jersey or Pennsylvania. Currently, the site is hosting six blackjack tables, four roulette games, and Casino Holdem. This is a great selection for all players. Another positive for BetAmerica is that they have one of the lowest playthrough bonus requirements of any online casino. Their first deposit bonus comes with a 10x playthrough requirement which is very low comparatively.

Cons

Unfortunately for BetAmerica, they simply do not have enough table game options to make this one of the best sites on the New Jersey or Pennsylvania market. Currently, BetAmerica has 18 table games, and they are all varieties of blackjack, roulette, and video poker. Even with their live dealer games, they do not have any baccarat or alternative game tables. This is very disappointing and definitely leaves players wanting more. Another knock on the site is that it really does not look good. There is too much going on with the New Jersey site and the colors contrast which made my eyes hurt after just a short period of time using it. The Pennsylvania site looks even worse as it seems somewhat incomplete and lacking in a lot of areas. Finally, BetAmerica does not have a rewards program and has made no mention of working towards one in the future. This is especially frustrating since almost every other site in New Jersey and Pennsylvania has one.

Rewards

BetAmerica does not currently have a rewards program.

Conclusion

There are some good positives with BetAmerica like their expansive slots library and good deposit bonus, but those are outweighed by limited table games and a poor looking site. Overall, this is a young online casino that still has a lot to do to be one of the best.
