Welcome to Atlantic City Advantage. This site covers all the action at Atlantic City casinos. It also has information on online casinos, sports betting, poker, hotels, restaurants and entertainment. 

The goal of Atlantic City Advantage is to give players the best information about where to play in New Jersey. This includes where we found the best video poker, table games and promotions in Atlantic City, as well as from licensed New Jersey gaming sites.

Atlantic City casinos

We visited all Atlantic City casinos in May 2021. This includes Bally’s, Borgata, Caesars, Golden Nugget, Hard Rock Harrah’s, Ocean Resort, Resorts, Tropicana and Wild Wild West. We surveyed table game minimum bets and rules, as well as video poker pay tables. We checked out sportsbooks and poker rooms. Our Atlantic City casino section also includes information on amenities, like hotels, dining and entertainment.

Atlantic City Blackjack Survey

The Atlantic City Blackjack Survey is modeled after our Las Vegas Blackjack Survey. It shows every blackjack game dealt in Atlantic City, including the expected minimum bet, whether the dealer hits or stands on soft 17, and if the house permits players to re-split aces or surrender.

Atlantic City Table Game Survey

Every table game that we found in Atlantic City in May 2021 is listed in our Atlantic City Table Game Survey. Games include craps, roulette, baccarat, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Three Card Poker, Four Card Poker and pai gow poker. We include rules like the craps odds, number of zeros on roulette wheels and the version of pai gow poker dealt.

New Jersey has dozens of online gaming options. Each is licensed through an Atlantic City casino. Many of the slots, video poker and table game titles are found in New Jersey online casino software platforms. The limits at New Jersey online casinos tend to be a bargain compared to the live versions found in Atlantic City.
