New Jersey Internet Casino Revenue Falls Again in May
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Internet gambling revenue declined in New Jersey for the second straight month in May, and the amount of money taken in by brick-and-mortar casinos fell as well.
Figures released Thursday by the state Division of Gaming Enforcement show casino online operations took in $10.4 million in May, a $1 million decline from April.
The 11 casinos took in $232.3 million in May, a decline of 8.2 percent compared with May 2013, when the Atlantic Club was still open.
Not counting the Atlantic Club, which closed in January, Atlantic City’s casinos posted a 3.1 percent revenue decline from a year ago.
The figures show New Jersey’s fledgling Internet gambling industry struggling at the six-month point.
