In October, the seven Atlantic City casinos that offer internet gambling within the state of New Jersey won over $26.75 million. This was up 30.1% over the total wins in October 2017.
Leading the way was the Golden Nugget. During the month, the Nugget won $9.7 million from its internet gambling websites (see the end of this article for a list of the websites that the AC casinos operate). This was a huge 57.6% year-over-year increase over the same month last year.
Borgata had the second highest internet gaming win in New Jersey, but it was well less than half of the Golden Nugget’s. During October Borgata won $4.4 million. Borgata’s win grew a less substantial, but still very respectable, 4.4%.
The three remaining casinos that have been in operation for at least a year won in the upper $3 million range. Caesars’ $3.9 million in internet wins was a very healthy 18.0% YoY gain. Tropicana’s 7.0% annual gain translates into $3.7 million in internet wins in October. Finally, Resorts secured $3.5 million in wins through its gaming websites, a YoY growth rate just positive, at 0.3%.
Hard Rock and Ocean Resort were not open in October 2017, so we do not have year-over-year growth numbers, but we do have October’s wins for each. These casinos’ websites brought in the two lowest wins during the month, but they were still decent showings for newcomers. Hard Rock won $1.0 million and Ocean Resort won $600 thousand during the month. Without a doubt, these figures will increase in the coming months as their gambling websites gain traction.
Internet gambling in New Jersey is growing stronger! The Atlantic City casinos that offer online gambling to people in New Jersey are reaping the benefits.
