New Jersey Online Gambling Sites Win $16.7 Million In October

Internet Gaming Win Up 30 Percent Year-Over-Year


Online casinos in the state of New Jersey won $16.7 million from players in October, according to figures released Tuesday by Garden State gaming regulators.

The amount was a 30-percent increase compared to October 2015’s $12.9 million. Online poker revenue of $2.4 million was up 25 percent year-over-year. Win from the other authorized casino games was $14.3 million, which reflected more than a 30-percent year-over-year gain.

Through the first 10 months of the year, online gaming revenue of $161.2 million was already more than won in all of 2015 ($149 million). Poker has accounted for $22.3 million of the revenue in 2015, up 12 percent year-over-year.

Total gaming win for the Atlantic City casino industry through October was $2.2 billion, up 1.4 percent compared to the amount won in the same period last year.

The Trump Taj Mahal closed on Oct. 10, which helped send overall October gaming win down about a percent compared to October 2015.

Borgata has led the way this year in both live and online play. The casino won $650 million through October (up four percent year-over-year), with $39.5 million of it coming over the internet.

It’s been a solid month for Atlantic City gaming, as the seaside gambling town recently saw voters reject a plan to put casinos elsewhere in the state.
