April wasn’t a great month for New Jersey online gambling.

Internet gaming win was $11.4 million for the 30 days in April, compared to $11.9 million for the 31 days in March. New Jersey online gaming began in November.

Those figures were according to a state report released Wednesday.

April did have 30 days, while March had 31. Thus, Internet gaming win per day was relatively flat at $380,958 for April and $383,173 for March, but there was no growth.

Internet gaming win for April consisted of $2.6 million from online poker and $8.8 million in the other casino games. The poker win was a decline of more than 19 percent compared to March.

Just three operators—Borgata, Caesars Interactive and Trump Taj Mahal—have online poker operations in New Jersey, while the rest are only running the other games.

As of April 30, 2014, 322,423 Internet gaming accounts have been created, up 10.6 percent from the 291,625 accounts as of March 31, 2014. The number of accounts does not refer to the number of unique players in the Garden State, as people can sign up for multiple accounts.

Total gaming win from the casino hotels and Internet gaming operations was $235.9 million in April 2014, a 3.2 percent increase compared to the $228.5 million in casino win for April 2013 (including Atlantic Club). So there is that good news.

Atlantic Club closed earlier this year, leaving 11 casinos in New Jersey.

For 2014, more than $43 million has been won from online gambling in New Jersey.

Atlantic City casino revenue has been tumbling every year since 2006.

Recently, a university in New Jersey conducted a poll that showed the majority of Americans actually oppose online gambling, but support legalizing pot for recreational use.
