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.
