Parx Casino entered the NJ market with Slots and Table Games only. They feature about 100 slots, meaning the player’s choice will be quite limited. However, among the most popular ones are well-known titles such as Jumanji, Starburst, and Gonzo’s Quest. The only progressive jackpot games available are Divine Fortune and Grand Spinn Superpot.

Table games include American Roulette, European Roulette, French Roulette, Roulette Advanced, Roulette Royale, Baccarat, Blackjack, Casino Hold’em, EZ Baccarat, Hi-Lo Solitaire, Jacks or Better, PokerBet, Pro Blackjack. This isn’t the biggest game selection. Frankly speaking, it’s one of the poorest in NJ, but it does include popular titles.

Live Dealer games are not available, let alone scratch cards or bingo games. Hopefully, we’ll have a chance to see more of them coming.

Parx teamed up with software developers GAN, NetEnt, Konami. The UK software provider GAN delivers slot games. Among the ones at Parx Casino are: Dragon Lines, Ancient Dragon, Empire of Sand, and Carnival in Rio. NetEnt developed the Grand Spinn Superpot jackpot game. It’s a mystery why NetEnt isn’t providing Live Dealer games for Parx Casino, since we know that they collaborate and that NetEnt specializes in Live Dealer games as well.

Desktop casino interface and mobile app review

Parx Casino website can hardly be called user-friendly, especially if you are browsing the website without an account. Live chat is missing from the main page and seems to be only available to registered players. For all questions, you’ll be asked to fill in a form indicating your email address and a question. The menu tab is on the left. If you click on it you’ll be offered several categories such as casino games, promotions, and support. The site looks pretty empty, as it lacks information in the FAQ section, where questions are vaguely answered, redirecting you to other pages. Game section, as we mentioned features a few games, making the website look deserted. It wouldn't hurt to add filtering options to their slots selection that currently lacks them making it troublesome to find the right type of game. Apart from that, the website boasts of a modern interface in dark blue and white colors.

  • Email: njsupport@parxcasino.com.
  • 24/7:

Parx Casino Customer Service states that it is available 24/7 via email, live chat, and phone. Live Chat is not available to non-registered players. For all inquiries, you’ll have to submit a form indicating your address, email, and the question itself. From our experience, you’ll receive an answer within 2-4 hours. Their FAQ section can hardly be called helpful as it lacks answers to basic questions. Hopefully, they will consider making this part of their website more user-friendly.

The Verdict

Parx Casino is less successful in New Jersey than in Pennsylvania. It is obvious, that the company is more into developing Parx Casino PA - an already highly praised and award winning brand with more features and Live Dealer games. As for Parx Casino NJ they are dragging behind not only their own more successful branch, but even their competitors. The website lacks information making it difficult to navigate it. The FAQ section is the opposite of being helpful. Their live chat is not an option for non-registered players. The only way to contact support is to fill in the contact form and wait a couple of hours for their response. Hopefully, they will also consider adding more filtering options to their slots selection. The lack of Live Dealer games and overall average or even below average game selection speaks for itself. Their withdrawal methods are quite limited. They do offer a pretty decent Loyalty Program. However, they would do great if they could add more promos.
