Types of New Jersey Online Poker Games

Nearly every online poker site in New Jersey offers the most popular form of the game, Texas Hold’em. Most Garden State poker sites offer Sit & Go tournaments and cash games for Texas Hold’em. 

Players should shop around at the various sites to find the best limits. Many brands offer lower blinds for the casual player or beginner, and high rollers won’t have an issue finding an appropriate room in any of the sites. 

Top Three New Jersey Poker Sites 

While there are many online poker sites in New Jersey, three stand out above the others: PokerStars NJ, and 888 Poker. 

A review of PokerStars shows that it is one of the biggest poker brands worldwide, but the company had a setback in the U.S. eight years ago. In 2011, the Department of Justice seized its domain name and assets. In 2016, PokerStars successfully received an official license from New Jersey and launched legally in the state. 

PokerStars NJ offers many kinds of poker games, including Omaha Hold’em, Texas Hold’em, Razz Stud, Seven Card, among others. 

Most poker enthusiasts are well aware of because of the World Series of Poker. The ultra-popular brand touts that they are the largest legal online poker room in the States. WSOP currently offers New Jersey players several types of poker, such as No Limit Texas Hold’em, Sit & Go, Seven Card Stud, Omaha High/Low, and Pot Limit Omaha. 

The 888 brand is synonymous with online gambling, and 888 Poker is the only online room available in Delaware, Nevada and New Jersey. Since 2013, the brand has partnered with WSOP to share limited player liquidity, allowing 888 Poker players to enjoy added rewards and larger prizes. 

888Poker (read review) has a similar selection of games as WSOP and PokerStars, but it also offers Blast Sit & Go Texas Hold’em tournaments, a turbo-speed version of the game.
