How Do We Rank our Online Sportsbook Reviews?

Our focus at USALegalBetting is on the most important aspects of online sports wagering. As such, there are 7 factors we consider when conducting online sportsbook reviews for a review;

  1. Bonuses and Promotions
  2. Betting Market Selection
  3. Payment Options
  4. Online Sportsbook Security
  5. Registration Process
  6. Mobile app
  7. Customer Support

Bonuses and Promotions

Most of NJ’s online sports betting sites now offer some sort of big-money welcome bonus and it’s always a good idea to compare and contrast these. Sometimes, the devil is in the detail and the fine print (in particular the sportsbook’s wagering requirement), and you could actually be better off turning down the sign-up bonus. We will let you know.

How Do We Review Online Sportsbook Bonuses and Promotions?

During our independently-conducted online sportsbook review process, we research all the bonuses and promotions offered by the sportsbook. We go through the terms and conditions line-by-line to unearth the sportsbook’s wagering requirement and which sports wagers actually contribute to fulfilling the playthrough requirements. For example, there is little use accepting a welcome bonus if NHL bets don’t contribute to the wagering requirements, and you only like to wager on hockey matches.

See our Bonus and Promotions Page for more details.

Sports Market Selection Review

While free money to place your wagers with is great, a variety of betting markets is essential to successful online sports betting. We will let you know the sportsbooks that offer a large variety of betting options – moneyline wagers, point spreads, parlays, multi-sport parlays and a vast selection of prop bets – in order to maximize your potential returns and keep your bankroll under control.

How Do We Review NJ Online Sportsbooks Sports Markets?

At USALegalBetting, we go through the number of sports on offer, how many matches per week across a given sport and perhaps most importantly, check the number of betting markets available on each match.

For example, for any given match in last NFL season, the best of NJ’s online sports betting sites offered as many as 110 different bet types on the match. Other than the usual moneyline and points spread wagers, the best sportsbooks will offer any number of prop bets like most rushing yards, pass completion percentages, and over/under total points etc.

NJ Payment Options

From credit cards to online bank transfers, web-wallets like PayPal, Skrill , Cash at Cage and PayNearMe, NJ’s online sportsbooks have it all. USALegalBetting let you know which methods are accepted, and where.

What Are the Most Commonly Used Payment Options in NJ?

Each of NJ’s Online Sportsbooks offer a range of payment options, giving customers a number of options when it comes to funding their accounts and/or cashing out their winnings.

  • Visa – One of the world’s largest credit card and debit card companies. Widely accepted.
  • Mastercard – Visa Card’s biggest competitor is evenly-matched in terms of accessibility at NJ’s Online Sportsbooks.
  • PayPal – The biggest and most popular web-wallet used globally and in the U.S.
  • PayNearMe – A prepaid cash voucher system that can be used in NJ at 7-Eleven’s and CVS’ for e-transfer convenience.
  • Skrill – A popular online wallet specializing in online sportsbook & casino transactions Bank transfer – More commonly known as an instant wire transfer, moves funds from your bank account to your online sportsbook’s bank account.
  • ACH – Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments are direct electronic debits between two accounts.

NJ Online Sportsbook Security

For your peace-of-mind, we ensure that all of the New Jersey sportsbooks utilize that the latest in SSL data encryption to protect your funds, personal details and data.

As long-term online sportsbook users ourselves, we are fully aware that protecting your funds is perhaps even a secondary concern to identity theft. We audit each online sportsbook to check that has at least 128-bit security encryption, and in many cases that will be 256-bit encryption or better. That level of encryption technology was created to keep Swiss banks secure, and as far as we are concerned, New Jersey’s online sportsbooks must be kept that secure too.

Is the Sportsbook Licensed by the NJDGE?

NJ Division of Gaming Enforcement

Naturally, sticking to our name, USALegalBetting only reviews NJ online sportsbooks that are licensed and regulated for legal play in the Garden State with the NJDGE.

Of course, we check on all our independent NJ Online Sportsbook Reviews for the seal of authenticity, and you can check at home too.

Look for the NJDGE logo prominently displayed on the online sportsbook site, and that the logo redirects to the official NJDGE site, much like this one below;

NJ Online Sportsbook Registration

Signing up to a NJ Online Sportsbook is a quick and straightforward, requiring just a minimum of information, I.D. etc. The entire registration process can be completed in just a matter of minutes on route to making your winning sports wagers.  The process is just as much for your own security and protection and for the sportsbook to prevent illegal hacks in your name.

NJ Online Sportsbooks Mobile Apps

Most users of NJ’s Online Sportsbooks are now choosing to access the sportsbooks using their cell phones or tablets. While in many cases, the browser version of NJ’s online sportsbooks works almost as quickly and has as many features as the site’s mobile app.

However, there are still are sportsbooks out there where the app works significantly quicker than the browser and/or the sportsbook has features or different bet types (in particular, live ‘in-play’ betting) that are only available on the app.

Can I download a Mobile App for my Android or iOS Phone?

We check all the sportsbooks for app accessibility.

In most cases, both Android & iOS apps are available from your respective app store.

Alternatively, many of NJ’s top online sportsbooks will also carry a live link on their website to download the app directly from their website for your convenience.

Do NJ’s Online Sportsbook Mobile Apps Offer the Same Gaming Experience?

As a part of our thorough NJ Online Sportsbook Reviews process, we download the app of each sportsbook and check if the sportsbook apps offer the same type of speed and features/bet types/betting markets etc as the browser versions. You’ll find all the results in the review of each sportsbook.

NJ Online Sportsbook Customer Support

If you ever encounter issues with your online sportsbook provider, it’s nice to know you can contact someone or get the correct and relevant information if you need to. How/When can you contact the sportsbook if you need to (phone, online chat, email, mailing address etc)? Does the online sportsbook have a Help or FAQs section to answer most of your questions? We’ll let you know in our reviews.

Which Online Sportsbooks Offer the Best Customer Service?

The Online Sportsbooks that generally receive the best reviews on customer support will generally have a local New Jersey or National Toll-Free phone number, provide a live chat feature that is available 24/7/365, in addition to an email address for less urgent inquiries.

Some sportsbooks offer fantastic Help or FAQs sections where the list of Help Topics provided is so extensive, you may never need to contact them at all.

We employ an experienced team of sports betting enthusiasts who are all sports bettors themselves to ensure all of our online sportsbook reviews cover all the topics that you want to know about.

What Makes A Good Online NJ Online Sportsbook Reviews Rating?

An online sportsbook must excel across a wide range of criteria in order to achieve a high rating, including trustworthiness, security, prompt payouts, strong coverage across a number of different sports, a user-friendly site, attractive odds, a slick mobile offering, good banking options, and excellent customer service. A compelling welcome bonus and loyalty program is another way to impress sports bettors, however, there are some highly rated sites that downplay the bonus and promotions system and simply offer sharp, early lines and instant payout options.
