New Jersey I-Gaming Starts 2016 On Big Upswing
Online Gaming Operators Win $14.6 Million In January
New Jersey’s online gaming sites collected $14.6 million from gamblers in January compared to $11.6 million during the same month last year, reflecting an increase of 26.5 percent, according to figures from New Jersey gaming regulators.
Casino win for the month of January was $175.5 million compared to $186.0 million in January 2015, a 5.6-percent decrease. Atlantic City’s continued casino gambling market decline has prompted lawmakers to push for casinos in North Jersey.
Revenue from online poker was $2.15 million in January, down 6.4 percent compared to January 2015’s $2.3 million, the state report said.
Borgata led the way with $4.57 million of the total online gaming revenue, followed by Caesars Interactive NJ with $3.23 million, Tropicana with $2.9 million, the Golden Nugget with $2.5 million and Resorts Digital with $1.4 million.
Borgata’s revenue was up 20.7 percent year-over-year, which was the largest increase out of Atlantic City’s online gaming operators.
The online casinos won $148.9 million from gamblers in 2015, up 21.2 percent from the $122.88 million won in 2014. However, poker play fell 18.1 percent on the year, going from $29.1 million in 2014 to $23.82 million in 2015.
Since launching in late 2013, New Jersey’s online gaming industry has won roughly $295 million.
