FAQs

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 signup process for Harrah’s is very simple and straightforward. Users will provide the site with basic information including their cell phone number which is used to run a geolocation search and ensure that the user is in New Jersey. There is a $10, no deposit bonus for new users which can be used for any game on the site but cannot be withdrawn.

How do I deposit and is there a minimum?

To deposit money onto an account, users can choose ACH/eChecks, bank transfer, Visa/Mastercard, PayNearMe at a 7-Eleven, in-person at the Caesars Atlantic City cash cage, or PayPal. The minimum on all deposits is $10.

Pros

Harrah’s has the philosophy of “quality over quantity.” While they have a limited number of table games, it is one of the best looking and best running sites on the New Jersey market. The games look great, and the providers are some of the best around. Their Android version of the app finally launched in early 2020, and it seems like Harrah’s has now made a firm commitment to make their app a great place to play. They have over 200 slot machines and even more table and live dealer games available on the app than their website. Harrah’s has even made a commitment to having monthly updates to ensure that they have a great variety of games and slots. They also provide an option for users to drag and drop their favorite games into a special section so that they can easily access them. This is a neat feature on the site that is all about customer ease of use. Harrah’s does a great job with their daily promotions. Each day of the week, including weekends, has its own promotion that can range from free spins to extra points and money. A big positive for a lot of users with Harrah’s is that they can use PayPal for deposits and withdrawals. This is not available on all New Jersey sites and one of the features that a lot of people search for.

Cons

On the negative end of things for Harrah’s, they definitely struggle with a limited number of table games. They only have a few different versions of blackjack, roulette, and video poker and even fewer variety games on the site. Harrah’s also struggles with its limited amount of banking options. There are six options for deposit and just four options for withdrawal which is lower than a lot of the other online casinos in New Jersey.

Rewards

Harrah’s has one of the most lucrative rewards programs on the New Jersey market with great benefits. However, these rewards are mostly applicable only to high stakes players and players that will visit a Caesars Entertainment-affiliated destination. Most rewards can be used in person, but players can also choose to convert theirs into online cash at a rate of 100 Rewards Credits for $1. All players are entered into the Harrah’s rewards program automatically at sign up. There are four tiers to the program, and each has different rewards offered. The Gold level is the starting point followed by platinum at 5,000 Tier Credits, diamond at 15,000 Tier Credits, and seven stars by invitation only at a minimum of 150,000 Tier Credits. Players will earn one Tier Credit for every $20 wagered.
