An overview of the five best online casinos in America
Online gambling is still relatively new in America and, as a result, this means that only five states currently allow online gambling, with these being Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Iowa and Nevada.
In a number of cases, there are some of each state’s casinos which have successfully rolled out their online versions and have reaped the rewards as a consequence. Let’s take a look at some of the best across the various states.
Arguably one of the most famous and most popular, this online casino which is licensed in New Jersey is perhaps the most recognisable due to it being owned by the physical Golden Nugget casino in Atlantic City.
Regularly featuring attractive bonuses and welcome offers, it is also revered for its selection of games and timely payouts. One of its more unique features is its Golden Reward Player’s club where you can earn points by wagering and opting into promotions, with 100 points being worth $1 in credit. The state of New Jersey has over 20 online casinos and sportsbooks which are operational in its state, with many being an online version of their Atlantic City based resort.

Their online casino, despite being a social casino (not real money) features in excess of 200 slots and popular table games including blackjack and video poker, as well as baccarat and American and European roulette.
