Atlantic City’s Casino Revenue Down in February
Unseasonably warm temperatures did little to thaw Atlantic City’s casino revenue deep freeze in February, with revenue declining by 5.9 percent over last year.
Figures released Friday by the state Division of Gaming Enforcement show the 11 casinos won $242.7 million from gamblers last month.
Slot machine revenue fell 4.2 percent, to $176.2 million, while table game revenue decreased by 10.3 percent, to $66.5 million.
For the first two months of the year, casinos won $479.6 million, which is down 6.6 percent from the same period in 2011. The Borgata posted a 7.2 percent increase, to nearly $50.4 million, while ACH, the casino that’s changing its name next week to The Atlantic Club, saw its revenue fall by 28.6 percent to $8.3 million.
