Sports have always been the cornerstone of my life. I grew up playing every sport I could find on an amateur level and dedicating a similar amount of time to following the professional leagues; a habit that continues to this day. From the moment I graduated from college, I pursued a career covering sports news and discussion topics across a range of different publications, both on and offline. Over time I was able to build my experience and skillset, learning more about the sports betting world, and decided to explore new opportunities in the betting field — a journey eventually led me here to PlayersBest.com.
Today, our mission from space command is to focus on the beautiful US state of New Jersey. From our eyes in the sky, we can clearly see how it earned the name of ‘The Garden State’ but we’re not here to discuss the scenery…
Our orders are to enlighten you lucky earthlings about sports betting in New Jersey and to give you the benefit of our other-world knowledge by beaming down all of the information we can and logging it at PlayersBest. From there you can access it easily with your primitive Internet communication system.
It all began three years ago when we received a signal that the United States was in for a big change. our knowledge sensors picked up on how changes to online sports betting in US states would work in the predicted future of the online gambling cosmos.
We found that United States earthlings could now do some wagering on their best sporting specimens. Unfortunately, the information was all rather garbled, so we began an earthbound mission to get a clearer picture.
It’s all quite complicated and we won’t bore you too much with the details. In a space nut shell, something called PASPA was overturned on May 14 2018, which meant that NJ state leaders took direct control of gambling-related decisions. Luckily for you, they made the right decision and the first wager was placed in New Jersey by your supreme leader Phil Murphy just a few weeks later.
What all that means to you, is that you can now sign up for online sports betting in New Jersey without looking over your shoulder – it’s entirely legal. Although that sounds pretty stellar, we did wonder if there was a black hole waiting for unwary sports bettors and in fact we found several on the starry pathway to the best online betting sites New Jersey earthlings can access.
Luckily for you, after some serious meditation, we came up with a master plan to help you miss the black holes and to only consider the brightest stars. That does leave you with a bit of work to do, but we’ll explain everything carefully so you can follow the plan at warp speed.
How to cruise safely to the best online betting sites New Jersey
We hope that we’ve got your full attention right now, because if you follow our starry map to the nth degree, you’ll get where you want to be quickly and safely.
Look for a license
The first part of the plan involves some investigation. To legally offer sports betting in New Jersey, there are a few things your sportsbook should have done first:
Have an earthly presence in NJ
Form an affiliation with an Atlantic City land-based casino
Get a license from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJ DGE)
If all of that has been done correctly, you’ll see a NJ DGE badge of honour proudly displayed on your bookmaker’s human interface access (website), so always make sure you check it’s in place.
Keeping visitors safe
We’ve seen many examples of good and bad human interface security in our time, so we can explain clearly what you should be on the lookout for at every New Jersey online sports betting site you visit. First, every page of the website should have the treasured padlock icon, showing that your celestial connection has https:// encryption in place.
Second, to avoid alien eyes from viewing your human details or worse still stealing your money tokens, there should be a secure portal with at least 128-bit SSL encryption to which only you have the key.
Once a New Jersey online sports betting site has your most intimate information at its disposal, what happens to it. Earthlings have a bad habit of dishing it out without thought and suffering the consequences of attacks from the dreaded spam monster, or risk being infected with virtual worms and viruses.
The best online betting sites in New Jersey will make it entirely clear what they’re going to do with your personal stuff and how they’ll keep it safe.
Making the best use of your money tokens
Despite being something you can do legally, sports betting in New Jersey is still fraught with problems when it comes down to the simple matter of adding money tokens to your account. We’ve seen that many US banks are still on another planet when it comes to gambling and will simply block any transfers of that nature.
Our advice to you is to choose a site that has plenty of other options which you feel comfortable with and that won’t take too many earth days to process. A good selection of reliable e-wallets is a good place to start unless you happen to be on the next level where unearthly payment options made using cryptos are the norm.
What to do if you lose your way
It’s always worth looking to see if a sportsbook has any self help options available. Lists of FAQs, platform how-to guides and clear links to any gambling rules or terms and conditions that you might need to consult for example.
However, if it really comes to the crunch, you might need to get in touch with customer support. It’s always worth preempting future issues by checking that your sports betting site offers adequate customer support at the outset. My advice is to seek out a 24/7 live chat, with people in control, not AI bots, or a toll-free phone number.
An e-mail or web form option is acceptable, provided the response is quick enough and it can also be useful for more complex enquiries. One of our favourite tasks is putting customer support under scrutiny and it’s worth you doing the same.
Now it’s time to have some earthly fun
We have noticed on our interstellar travels that the occupants of the planet earth have a distinct preference for events that involve spherical objects of varying size and density. This sometimes involves groups kicking or throwing them, which seems to cause the most excitement, but also hitting them with various weapon-like tools hopefully with some degree of accuracy.
Luckily, most New Jersey online sports betting sites feature many contests of that nature, so you should be in your element. Another favourite is testing out a large four-legged mammal carrying a human rider against others of its breed. Sometimes there are obstacles to overcome as well and thousands of you like to guess the outcome.
We’ve also seen human contests that involve two humans in a one-to-one battle, as well as organised events that feature a whole range of gladiatorial events. Most of these are always on offer for your wagers. However, if you have the desire to bet on anything a little less mainstream, you may have to travel further to find it.
Free money tokens
Although the offering of free money tokens is beyond our mission this time, we will just tell you quickly that you’re certain to see many bonuses and offers up for grabs, just for signing up with a New Jersey online sports betting site. Some of our esteemed fellow crew members are busy checking them out as we write this and you can see evidence of their preliminary reports whenever you like by entering the PlayersBest website portal.
What are the odds
We’ve always thought that odds is a very odd word to use, but it seems it’s the way humans like to define their chances of winning money tokens. One thing we do like about odds is the fact that they are mathematical and therefore make sense to our analytical brain. That said, you can easily change them to a different format on the human interface if your math skills are not worthy.
Knowing your odds, how they work and where to find the best ones are something every human needs to know about. Without that knowledge, you are surely doomed to a life with less money tokens than you deserve.
Live streaming and in-play betting
We have the benefit of being all-seeing, but if you don’t then live streaming of your favourite sports and events is the next best thing. What could be more exciting than betting on events that are unfolding right in front of your eyes? Just be super-careful not to get too carried away by the moment or you could end up losing all your money tokens in a matter of minutes.
Don’t be bound by earthly constraints
We love to see when a sports betting site in New Jersey advertises mobile apps, meaning that you humans can take your sports betting portal with you when you travel. Well, wherever your Internet and network permits you to anyway. Just one thing we must tell you though. If you live in New Jersey, you can only bet whilst you’re inside state lines.
Your mobile app contains a unique gizmo thingy that knows where you are at all times. Although you can look and even add money tokens to your account, you won’t be able to place a wager outside of New Jersey State.
Further exploration of your New Jersey online sports betting universe
We love exploring and often have great fun with this part, as it means taking a look at everything beyond sports betting. What we’re talking about is the extras that New Jersey online sports betting sites might have on offer for those of you willing to explore outside of your earthly comfort zone.
One common theme is an online casino. That’s not surprising as after all, every site that offers sports betting in New Jersey is affiliated to a land-based casino in Atlantic City. The best ones offer out of this world numbers of slots and casino table games.
I also have a little celestial tip for you and that’s to try out a few of the slots and table games before you decide to sign up. You’ll find that most online casinos have freeplay options available for exactly that reason.
Depending on how the casino operator has hosted their games, will affect how quickly they’ll load up in your browser. The last thing you want when you’re ready to play is to sit around waiting for a game to load. Chances are that if they’re slow to load, the gameplay won’t be all that cosmic either!
As competition is fierce, hopefully you’re going to find the very best software developers represented and more variations on a theme than I can list here. Do make sure that the slots and any table games you like playing are available on the casino platform. Sounds basic, but with everything else to think about, it’s an easy thing to overlook.
I did already mention that you can often try out a lot of slots and games for free. By all means take full advantage of that, but also bear in mind that you’ll likely get offered oodles of free money tokens for trying them out for real.
As a game of strategy and skill, not to mention plenty of money tokens involved, poker is officially the most popular card game on planet earth. Although you might not think your human poker skills are up to the challenge of a land-based tournament, there’s nothing to stop you trying out online poker instead. Even as a complete newbie you can join in digital games and for those of you who think they’re ready for the ultimate challenge, go for a live-dealer option.
Virtual sports and virtual reality
Being a big fan of human technological triumphs, we’d just like to tell you about a couple of things that have caught our eye. The first is virtual sports, which are basically computer-generated assimilations of their earthbound equivalents, we found them rather fun to explore when there was nothing else worth a wager and you can usually preview them without spending money tokens as well.
The second is virtual reality, which is mostly available for casino-goers. Now the catch is that you’ll need some other-worldly (not to mention costly) head and hand gear to get the most out of the VR experience, but there’s no denying that the best of them are truly the closest thing to walking into a real-life casino. The experience comes complete with free-roaming ability and interaction with other customers – you can even buy a pretty girl a drink at the bar if you feel inclined.
You’ll find some sports betting and casino sites have immersive and interactive loyalty programs that are designed to keep you engaged whilst others don’t bother with them at all. Basically, we’ve seen some that are more for fun than reward and others that are worth considering if you’re planning to bet regularly. It’s really down to the individual earthling whether or not you like this type of status-building program.

Concluding our mission
our time is almost up for this mission and it’s been fun exploring how online gambling in New Jersey has taken shape since it became legal in 2018. Although this part of our journey is over, there are plenty of other crew members eager to explore and report on all things gambling in New Jersey.
