Online gambling and sports betting have reached near record levels over the past month in New Jersey. Also, nearly half of Atlantic City casinos earn through their own players is larger than they earned during September 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic began.
Figures released by New Jersey’s Division of Games Enforcement Directorate on Oct. 16 are very good, but they are still not enough to calm underlying concerns at beach resorts that normal player income has yet to reach the level of five out of nine casinos before the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
But by current figures, the joint acquisition from in-person participants in September this year was $246 million, more than $224 million in September 2019. In addition, four of the nine casinos (Hard Rock, Caesars, Resorts and Ocean) disclosed greater direct revenue in September 2023 compared to September 2019, before the onset of COVID-19. This appears to be a small step forward compared to the two or sometimes three habitual casinos that exceed that level for most months. 온라인경마
“Cyber attacks on a small number of casino companies with facilities in the state have negatively affected casino revenues like these,” said James Flusis, chairman of the New Jersey Casino Control Board, stressing that “it is still the third-highest September performance since 2012.”
