Play real money poker games

Playing online poker is just as exciting as playing at a physical table in land-based casinos across Atlantic City. However, online poker provides more gaming options, versatility and convenience compared to a real casino table. This is why online poker games are becoming increasingly popular. It’s a top player-favorite category here at Resorts Casino.

Real-money online gambling is still somewhat of a hassle within the US. Several states have yet to legalize the activity, and only about half a dozen currently regulate online casinos. Fortunately, New Jersey is one of them, and in this guide, we’ll highlight all that you need to know about playing NJ online poker.

Playing online poker in New Jersey 

New Jersey is among the few states with legalized online casino gaming. In fact, it was the first state to do so in 2013 and remains the foremost hub for online poker gamers. 

As online poker is regulated and perfectly legal in NJ, playing New Jersey poker is absolutely safe. These games offer lots of varieties, jackpots and winning opportunities. At Resorts Casino, you’ll find numerous tournaments available to join, and you can play for free or real money.

Players can participate in numerous multi-table tournaments running from weekdays into weekends. In addition, these tournaments come with big prize pools, often running into hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

Like blackjack, poker is a game of strategy, so you’ll need an ace or two up your sleeve to beat the table. The poker blog section at Resorts Casino is the hub for poker tips that help you increase your chances of winning.

Great poker games to choose from

If you are looking for a site with all your favorite NJ online poker games, it doesn’t get better than Resorts Casino. Our gaming platform has more than 20 poker titles spread across different types of poker games, which have slightly different poker rules.

Here are some of the best ones you can play now: 

  • Texas Hold’em – The most popular poker variation, Texas Hold’em revolves around creating the strongest five-card hand. Players get two hole cards and five community cards from which they have to make their five-card hand.

This type of poker offers players a chance to win the pot or total bets depending on the strength of the hand in the poker hand rankings. Some variations of Texas Hold’em are Texas Hold’em Plus, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, and Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em. 

  • Three Card – This is another interesting kind of online poker that offers three ways to play and four ways to win. Here, you can bet against the dealer or on your own hand. You can also choose to bet both ways. Three Card Poker follows the regular poker rankings with a few exceptions. 
  • Live Dealer Three Card – This unique type of poker involves playing with a live dealer, and only a single hand is dealt. Live dealer Three Card Poker shares many similarities with regular Three Card Poker, except that you start this game by placing an Ante bet.
  • Four Card – The goal is to make a better four-card hand than the dealer. While players are dealt five cards to play, the dealer gets six. The game starts with players placing either an Ante bet or an Aces Up bet. Whoever ends up with the stronger hand wins. The best hand is four-of-a-kind.
