Atlantic City Casino Revenues Fall To $3.05 Billion, Less Than Just The Month Of December In Macau

Gaming Win Drops By 8 Percent Compared To 2011


Since 2006, Atlantic City’s casino industry has been on the steep decline — and it just had another poor year from its brick-and-mortar gambling operations.

In 2012, the area’s 12 properties won $3,050,695,869 from gamblers, which marks an eight-percent decline when compared to $3,315,939,476 from 2011.

For comparison, Macau brought in $3.54 billion in the month of December alone.

In order to potentially stabilize the industry, some lawmakers in the Garden State are hoping that the governor will sign an online gambling bill that has already reached his desk.

The final numbers are not yet in for Nevada. The Silver State’s industry likely experienced an increase in gaming revenue for 2011, but the growth probably will be below predictions.

Nevada took in $10.7 billion from gamblers last year.

For the full look at Atlantic City’s numbers, check out the state’s press release.

I just went for the 1st time. They can blame the economy but I can tell you I won't be back for other reasons. The workers are rude (send them to Vegas for some hospitality lessons), over half the machines either didn’t take bills or player cards, and all of the casinos were filthy. I moved the same completely full ashtray back and forth for 3 days off of different video poker machines at Caesar’s and that was the cleanest place of them all. Oh yeah and drink service was brutal.

The problem is when it comes to a legitimate international gaming tourist destination, AC would rank as the lowest, behind Vegas, Macau, and even Monte Carlo. What high roller, capable of being accepted with open arms in any casino in the world, would want to go to AC?!? No one wants to go too far out of their way to gamble, and if they do they can go to Vegas, which is why AC relies on NY residents. When casinos start getting bigger and more prevalent in New York, it will be the death rattle of this 'resort' destination.
