Previously found only in New Jersey, Ocean Online Casino has a new co-owner and may be coming to additional states soon, starting shortly in Pennsylvania.
Detroit’s Ilitch family, owners of MotorCity Casino Hotel, Little Caesars, and the Detroit Tigers and Red Wings, bring gambling experience to the partnership, along with growth capital.
Ocean Casino players in Pennsylvania won’t have instant access to the entire New Jersey game collection. The good news is that platform provider GAN has partnerships in place with a long list of software studios. It won’t be long before Keystone State players have access to 450+ slots, progressive jackpots, blackjack, video poker, roulette and live dealer table games.
Read on for details about Ocean’s welcome bonus, tips for accessing and navigating the site, plus an in-depth look at all the games you’ll find.
Ocean welcomes new players with a matching bonus on their first deposit, up to $500. To qualify, head to the Ocean Casino homepage, sign up for a new account and, when prompted, enter the bonus code PLAYBONUS then tap the “+” symbol to lock it in.
Once you’ve done that, log in to your new account and click the promotions tab. Opt in to the offer, then click the deposit button at the top of the page. Finally, follow the prompts and deposit at least $50.

Once the casino has added the matching bonus cash to your balance, you’ll have one week to meet a 30x playthrough requirement. Not all games contribute equally. Each $1 you wager on slots counts fully toward the 30x. Dollars that you wager at roulette count 50%, and all other games will count 10%.
For example, if you deposit $100, Ocean will match it with $100 in bonus funds. To meet the 30x playthrough requirement using only slots, you’d need to bet $3,000 ($100 x 30).
Signing up for a new Ocean Casino account is fairly easy:
Ocean players are eligible to earn perks from two loyalty programs. If you already have an Ocean Rewards card for the physical casino in New Jersey, you can link it to your online Ocean account.
If you’re not a member, and are unlikely to travel to Atlantic City to become one, your online wagers can still contribute to Ocean’s loyalty program for online play: the High Seas VIP Club.
You can start collecting High Seas benefits as soon as you accrue 25,000 points in one month. To maintain your membership, you’ll need to earn at least that many points at least twice in any three-month period. Each $1 that you wager on Ocean’s online casino games will earn High Seas points at the following rate:
|Other Table Games||3|
You can redeem points for site credits, which have a one-time playthrough requirement and never expire. High rollers and frequent players are likely to get the most value out of the program. The higher you climb the six tiers, the fewer bonus points it will take to redeem $1 in site credits, as follows:
Ocean’s online casino is legal and operational in New Jersey, and will likely become the same in Pennsylvania soon. See below for a breakdown of how sites operate in each state:
Ocean Casino is accessible on Android app, Apple iOS mobile browser and web browser for PC and Mac computers. Most of the features you’ll find on the full-sized version of the site are available on the app, including promotions, banking, account details and customer service.
To download the Android app directly from Ocean Casino, just follow these steps:
For iPhone and iPad, you can still play via mobile browser. Here’s how to set up your iOS device:
GAN’s GameStack platform features an innovative design that will maximize your online experience on every device. The app holds hundreds of games, plus most features you’ll find on the full-sized site. You’ll find a leaderboard and contest standings on the left of the homepage, while links to customer service, the loyalty program and your account menu will be along the top.
Use the navigation bar to narrow the game selection down into slots, jackpot slots, new titles, video poker or table games. If you’re wondering what sets Ocean apart from the competition, here are a few highlights:
Ocean Casino New Jersey is a class act. If you’re still undecided about signing up, we’ve put together a list of the site’s top features to help you make a decision:
Ocean Casino in New Jersey offers more than 450 online casino games, including 350+ slots, 25+ progressive and standalone jackpot slots, 20+ live dealer titles, and dozens of video poker, blackjack, roulette and other table games.
New states will offer fewer games at launch, but will likely catch up quickly. Here’s what you’re likely to find in Pennsylvania:
Of special note are Ocean’s large collection of progressive and standalone jackpot slots. These games range from the classic NetEnt standard, Divine Fortune, to Night Life: Lock It Link from WMS, with four fixed jackpots.
For other jackpot titles, try Lightning Box Games’ Stellar Jackpots series, such as Serengeti Lions and Silver Pride, which feature three fixed jackpots, or Spin Games’ Linked Progressive series with three progressive jackpots.
If you’re looking for a few other suggestions, here are some additional titles to try:
Ocean offers the standard Game King games, along with several other titles. New to the lineup is I Luv Suits Poker from Shuffle Master. You want to beat the dealer’s hand in this variant that operates much like High Card Flush. You’ll also find a few popular games from SG Digital, including Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Let It Ride and Four Card Poker.
Ocean offers several varieties of blackjack, primarily from NetEnt and SG Digital. Look for NetEnt’s version titled simply Blackjack, along with SG Digital’s Blackjack XChange and Blazing 7s Blackjack.
In New Jersey, you’ll find about 20 live dealer games streamed live from Evolution Gaming’s studio in the state. Options will include three card poker, blackjack, roulette, American roulette, baccarat and dream catcher.
GAN has a relationship already in place with Evolution Gaming in the Keystone State, which should help pave the way for live dealer games there.
Ocean offers just a few other types of table games, including both American roulette and European roulette. Keep in mind that the American version has a higher house edge due to the use of the 0 and 00 pockets.
Ocean Online Casino has a number of convenient ways to make deposits and withdrawals from your account. The minimum deposit is $10, but you’ll need to add at least $50 to qualify for the first deposit matching bonus.
Not all methods are available in every state, but here’s an overview of typical online banking options you might find:
To get started with a withdrawal, click the account menu at the top of the page, tap the cashier link and select the withdrawal tab. Players can withdraw their funds via ACH e-check, prepaid Ocean Play+ card, check at the cashier’s cage and PayPal.
If you are planning a visit to Ocean Online Casino’s land-based partner in Atlantic City, you’ll be able to make deposits and withdrawals from your account at the casino cage.
Ocean Casino provides a safe and secure online experience in accordance with each state’s regulatory and oversight boards.
The online casino offers live chat, phone and email support between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. daily. Just click the big yellow question mark at the top of the screen to get started. A limited FAQ is available, but most answers will tell you to contact customer support for assistance.
Ocean Casino Resort was called the Revel Casino Hotel when it debuted in Atlantic City in 2012. A new owner rechristened the property Ocean Resort Casino in 2018, signed GAN to launch and operate Ocean Online Casino in New Jersey, and tapped William Hill to open a retail sportsbook at the physical location.
Shortly after Ocean Online Casino launched in 2019, the Luxor Capital Group acquired the property and changed the name to Ocean Casino Resort. The New York-based hedge fund company put GAN in charge of online operations, and announced that expansion was not in the cards.
All of that changed when the Ilitch family signed on as partners in the spring of 2021. A spokesman for Luxor stated that the new partnership would provide “growth capital” and a “strategic partnership for the future.”
Pennsylvania is the obvious choice for Ocean’s first expansion effort since all it would take is for the PGCB in neighboring Pennsylvania to declare the Atlantic City casino a qualified gaming entity. If that happens, Ocean Casino won’t need a land-based partner to launch in the Keystone State.
