New Jersey online casino players will soon have a chance to test Jackpocket Casino. The gambling newcomer soft-launched in the New Jersey and has yet to reveal when its casino app is available.

Jackpocket is best known for its online lottery products available in 18 US jurisdictions, including states like New Jersey, New York, and Texas. It gained online casino market access in New Jersey through Caesars Interactive Entertainment New Jersey in December 2021.

Jackpocket Casino app available for download in New Jersey

Since the Jackpocket Casino app is available for download on iOS, players looking for a new online casino might have already seen it in their search.

Although there was no official announcement, the news about the Jackpocket Casino launch doesn’t come as a surprise. In March 2023, Jackpocket announced a deal with White Hat Gaming, which would help the company build its payment infrastructure while expanding in the US online casino space.

Almost two months ago, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement issued regulatory approval to Jackpocket Casino to offer its online slots and live dealer games in the state.

The Division of Gaming Enforcement authorized Caesars Interactive Entertainment and Harrah’s Atlantic City to “conduct internet gaming business” in the Garden State.

In the company’s press release, Jackpocket said it expected to launch Jackpocket’s iGaming products in 2022, following completion of the approval process.

What New Jersey players can expect from Jackpocket’s online casino

Jackpocket Casino’s online slots predominantly include popular NetEnt titles like:

  • Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood Slot
  • Finn and the Swirly Spin
  • Fruit Shop
  • Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen
  • Gorilla Kingdom
  • Starburst

The progressive slots selection includes titles like Divine Fortune and Vegas Night Life, both listed under the “jackpots” category.

Live table game selection includes different variants like real-money online blackjack, roulette and baccarat.

Jackpocket joins a fruitful New Jersey online casino market

Online gambling in New Jersey launched on Nov. 25, 2013, when the state gaming regulators approved six licensees. The NJ online casino market has exceeded most expectations for the past ten years, including gaming revenue hopes and dreams.

Three NJ online casino license holders dominate the market:

  • Golden Nugget
  • Resorts Digital
  • Borgata

Online gambling companies like BetMGM, BetRivers, DraftKings, and Golden Nugget have been in New Jersey for a long time and, alongside many other operators, have established solid customer databases.

Over the last ten years, New Jersey online casinos have set many records while generating more than $7 billion in gaming revenue. The state also collected more than $1 billion in taxes.

Just last month, in October, NJ online casino apps’ win topped $166.8 million.

While Jackpocket is still in its soft launch mode, it’s too early to tell if it will succeed in the busy market as New Jersey is.
