The Pala Band of Mission Indians have officially become the first tribe to offer online gambling services in New Jersey. On Monday, Pala Interactive began their soft launch of PalaCasino.com with a full suite of iGaming products.
Two weeks ago, Pala Interactive and the Borgata announced a partnership that would lead to a launch of the first Native American operated online gambling site in New Jersey. According to an email received by the site’s customer support, the site is currently in soft launch status and ran from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. EST on Monday and Tuesday.
Free $15 New Account Bonus
Pala Casino is rewarding new players with a solid new account bonus of up to $15. By clicking on the Join Now button, you will instantly be rewarded with $10 in free money. If you complete your registration within the first five minutes of clicking the button, you will get an additional $5.
Spin for $1 Million in Cash
One promotion that is sure to be a solid draw to the site is their “Free Daily Spin for $1 Million.” All new players upon logging in for the first time will be able to spin for prizes up to $1 million. There are several secondary prizes available from $1 to $1,000.
Regular players on the site will have daily opportunities to spin for $1 million in cash. In order to participate daily, you must deposit at least $50 on the site and retain a cash balance of at least $10. If those criteria are met, you can continue to spin once daily until the end of the promotion in November 2015.
Poker Coming Soon
According to the website and the customer support email received from Pala Casino, an online poker site is coming in the near future. The website currently has a tab for Pala Poker, but simply has a coming soon sign for online poker in New Jersey. It is assumed that the poker site will run separate from Borgata Poker and PartyPoker NJ.
Pala Casino will continue to operate on a limited schedule for the remainder of their soft launch period. They will open on Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. EST, and then operate from noon to 11:59 p.m. EST on Thursday and Friday.
The soft launch period gives site operators and state regulators a chance to do final testing on the site and make sure that everything operates smoothly. Should the site receive final approval, it will then be allowed to go live, perhaps by next Monday. However, if the site does not meet approval it will likely continue in soft launch mode until it does.
