Figures Show Online Gambling Thriving in New Jersey

-

Days after the US state of Delaware revealed impressive online gaming stats for the month of September, a report on the New Jersey gambling industry has underlined the strength of the east-coast betting sector, which continues to thrive in the wake of last year’s legal reforms.   

Last month, Delaware set a new record for gaming revenue, and according to figures released this week by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE), the state has performed strongly, equalling its August returns and exceeding last September’s revenue take.  

According to the DGE, combined online gambling revenue in New Jersey amounted to $41.1 million during the month of September, matching the figure for August and improving on the revenue total for September 2018 by nearly 60%.   

The online casino sector led the way in generating revenue in the state, with a rise of 63.6% on last year’s September figures, boosted partly by the increased traffic associated with the NFL season, which kicked off at the start of the month, and contributed to a rise in online casino revenue of 57% to $322 million for the year to date. 

All of the established operators in the New Jersey online betting sector, including Golden Nugget, Resorts Digital Gaming, and the Borgata Group of online sites, showed improved performances, as did newcomers to the market such as Ocean Casino Resort and Hard Rock Atlantic City.  

Even the struggling New Jersey poker sector showed an improved performance in September, with a modest rise in revenue to $1.64 million, up from $1.61 million this time last year.  

New Jersey was at the forefront of the successful campaign to legalise sports betting and was one of the first states to launch its regulated online betting market, a position that has enabled it to become one of the most profitable gambling jurisdictions outside Nevada.
