Gamblers Look to Online Casinos as Coronavirus Shuts Down Live Gambling
March 18, 2020
In Las Vegas the legendary Strip has been reduced to a shell of its normal self. In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic many properties are closing temporarily. Other casinos are only allowing a limited number of patrons to enter. Available seats have been reduced at popular table games like blackjack.
In New Jersey the scene is similar. The residents of New Jersey, however, are finding that they have an option Las Vegas gamblers don't have. Online gambling is legal in New Jersey. Players that can't venture out to the live casinos in the state are able to play online at casinos operated by the Golden Nugget, MGM, Tropicana, and other major gaming providers.
MGM has closed all of its live properties for a minimum of two weeks, but its online sports betting platform remains open 24/7. Online casinos never close, and players can enjoy them from home with a computer, phone, or tablet.
This is a great time for those who have not played gambling games online to explore Virgin Casino or Pala Casino. New players can claim free bonus money when they sign up for an account and make a deposit. There are also loyalty programs that reward players for frequent play, and promotions are offered on a weekly basis.
The United States is only in the beginning stages of the coronavirus pandemic. Officials expect that the problem will intensify over the next few weeks. As individuals are advised to limit contact with others, online casino play can be a way to enjoy a familiar activity.
All of the games that one can find in the live casinos of New Jersey are available online at the Tropicana Casino and other venues. There are hundreds of slot machines, some of which can pay large jackpots for a single spin. There are also table games such as blackjack and roulette.
