Atlantic City’s live and online poker rooms raked a combined $5.1 million from poker players last month, according to figures released this week by state gaming regulators.

The city’s live poker rooms brought in $3.15 million in revenue, while the online poker sites generated $1.95 million in rake. The online poker revenue was down 16.6 percent compared to January 2017, when the internet card rooms took in $2.34 million.

The brick-and-mortars had $3.34 million in poker revenue in January 2017, which reflects a year-over-year decrease of about 5.6 percent. Five of the seaside gambling town’s seven Las Vegas-style casinos have poker rooms. There are about 240 authorized tables between them.

Taken together, the $5.1 million poker market from last month was down about 10 percent compared to the market in January 2017. Only two card rooms, including the online poker operators, saw year-over-year gains in poker revenue. January was a blistering cold month for the northeast region, which took a bite of out Atlantic City’s winnings.

That poker contraction witnessed last month mirrored the Atlantic City casino gambling industry’s overall performance. Total gaming win of $184.3 million was down 9.9 percent year-over-year.
