Internet Gambling in New Jersey Up 30%; Golden Nugget Leads the Way

The Short Take:

  • Total internet wins for the seven Atlantic City casinos that offer internet gambling in New Jersey totaled $26.75 million during October, a 30.1% year-over-year increase
  • The leader in internet gambling in New Jersey is the Golden Nugget.  Its $9.7 million in wins during the month was a 57.6% annual growth rate
  • Two relative newcomers to internet gambling in New Jersey are Hard Rock, which had $1.0 million in wins, and Ocean Resort with $600 thousand in wins

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.

Here is a list of the websites that each of the seven AC casinos operated as of the end of October 2018:

The Golden Nugget Dominates New Jersey Internet Gambling

The Short Take:

  • The seven Atlantic City casinos won over $25M from their Internet gambling websites in September
  • The market leader for the month was Borgata which won over $9.2M and controlled over 36% of the New Jersey online casino market
  • The two newcomers to Atlantic City – the Hard Rock and Ocean Resort – controlled a combined 3.8% of the New Jersey online casino market after just three months of operation

In September, the seven Atlantic City casinos that offer Internet gambling within the borders of New Jersey saw $25,752,461 in total online wins.  This number represents the total all of the Atlantic City casinos won through their websites which offer games such as slots, blackjack and poker.  This number does not include online sports betting – you can read about the casinos’ September online sports betting results here.

Borgata, which dominates slots and table games in its physical casino, does not dominate internet gambling in New Jersey.  The Golden Nugget typically slays the competition in online gaming, and the September results were no different.  The casino won over $9.2M through the three websites it operates.  Borgata did come in second, but a distant second.  Its online wins of $4.5M were less than half that of the Golden Nugget.

Caesars, Resorts and the Tropicana filled the middle of pack, with total online wins between $3.3M and $4.1M. The two newest casinos in town, the Hard Rock and Ocean Resort, had the lowest online wins with $646K and $323K, respectively.

Here a recap of the total September Internet gambling wins for each Atlantic City casino:

 

The Golden Nugget’s $9.2M in online wins in September obviously gave it the largest share of the online gambling pie in New Jersey.  For the month it took in 36.1% of the statewide online wins while Borgata earned 17.7% of the wins.  The Hard Rock and Ocean Resort were only in their third full month of offering internet gambling, so they have a lot of room to grow their market share.  The Hard Rock controlled 2.5% of the internet wins in September while Ocean Resort controlled 1.3%.

Here’s a look at the Internet gambling wins market share for each Atlantic City casino:
