Adweek explains that, “As the weather gets chillier, Caesars Casino wants to let New Jersey residents know they don’t have to leave their homes to try their luck: They can play online.”
When I say play online, I also don’t mean a handful of games either. According to the report in question, players “can play more than 120 games on the casino’s website.”
