Registering at Hard Rock

The Hard Rock is one of the most well-known names in America and around the world. It was founded in 1971 in London and has since become an incredibly popular name internationally with cafes, restaurants, hotels and casinos. The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City opened on November 15, 1996. 

Hard Rock partnered with Gaming Innovation Group to launch its New Jersey sportsbook on January 31, 2019. The sportsbook is available on location in Atlantic City as well as online.

It was the tenth sportsbook to launch in the state of New Jersey. In this guide we will take you through the most important steps to registering and betting on Hard Rock Sportsbook.

As we said earlier, for every section that you complete in the registration you will receive free spins for the casino. These will be given sparingly all the way up to the total of 50. With that in mind, there are quite a few sections to complete, though nothing too out of the ordinary and the process in general is not longer than any other sportsbook.

Due to the use of geolocation, you can enter an out of state address and still be allowed to sign up. Though you should be aware that real money gambling in New Jersey is only allowed when you are physically present in the state.

Terms and conditions will ask you to certify that you are 21 years of age or older and to agree to Hard Rock’s terms and conditions. These will give an overview of the rules, regulations and general information about playing on Hard Rock. including information on geolocation.

This helps everyone to bet safely and legally and is also what allows you to create an account even if you are out of state. These services will verify your location whenever you attempt to log in to your account and periodically while betting.  Players will also need to certify that theyare not key employees prohibited from betting in the state. 

  • Key employees are persons employed either by casinos, sportsbooks or sports organizations in the state that have been prohibited from sports betting. For members of sports organizations such as players, coaches, referees, owners, etc., if you are an exception, there will be a form you must fill out.

After hitting create an account, the last thing that you will need to do is provide the last four digits of your social security number. This is the form of identification that Hard Rock will use to verify your information. After this is done, your account will be created and you will be prompted to make a deposit.

3) Step Three: Deposit into your Account

The final step between registering an account and playing on said account is to make a deposit. It is likely that you will have been given some bonus funds once your account was approved. However, in order to start playing for real money without any extra requirements you will need to deposit.

The minimum deposit is ten dollars while the maximum is $500.

4) Step Four: Making Bets
