New Jersey Online Gambling Revenue Goes Up in December
According to the latest data released by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE), the Garden State’s regulated online market had an excellent year behind us, recording an increase in revenue of nearly 25%.
The numbers also show state-licensed online gambling sites exceeded the $20 million threshold for the tenth month in a row with their December result of $20.75 million.
The revenue generated during the last month was around 13% up when compared to the last year’s score, but it’s still almost a $1 million short of the year’s best result, recorded back in March.
And while casino revenue went up by $15.6 to $18.8 million, poker has once again recorded a drop, this time around 8%, for a total revenue of $1.94.
As we’ve already mentioned, 2017 saw total online revenue go up by nearly one-quarter to $245.6 million, with casino leading the way with an increase of 30.1%, whereas poker recording a decline of 8.5%.
Golden Nugget Still Number One
Atlantic City casinos’ can be satisfied with their December performances.
Golden Nugget’s online casino sites were very successful during December, recording a combined revenue of $6.1 million. It should be noted the Nugget was the first New Jersey-licensed site to offer live casino dealers.
Still, the company has ambitious plans for the future and the recent announcement of new live casino options that will include Casino Hold’em proves this claim.
The Borgata sites, including PartyPoker, took home $4.3 million, $600,000 more than in the same period last year, but the results are basically at the same level as in November.
Caesars Interactive Entertainment New Jersey was third-placed with $3.8 million, followed by the Tropicana’s casino-only site with $3.36 million, and Resorts Digital Gaming (PokerStars included) with $3.2 million.
