Figures released Wednesday by the state Division of Gaming Enforcement show the 11 casinos operating at the end of last year (there are 12 now, with Revel’s opening Monday), posted a gross operating profit of $494.9 million. That’s down from $534.6 million in 2010.

It was the latest discouraging news for Atlantic City, which recently lost its status as the nation’s No. 2 casino market to Pennsylvania.

Gross operating profit reflects earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and other charges. It is a widely accepted measure of profitability in the casino industry.

The city’s hotel occupancy rate held steady at just over 82 percent last year.
