Atlantic City Has Another Bad Month In July

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has released the gambling revenue numbers for Atlantic City in July, highlighting a drop of 9.5% compared to the same period last year.

The numbers show that no casino did better than they did during the same period last year. Slot revenue was down 8.9% and table games were down by 11%.

The Borgata Casino Hotel and Spa was down 16% from the same time last year, although this was attributed to a punter taking home $5 million over a single weekend last month.

For the year only two Atlantic City casinos are having a better 2012 than 2011. Those two casinos are the Golden Nugget, which is up more than $77 million for the year, and the Tropicana, which is seeing revenues up by 4.4%.

Analysts are predicting that August may be a bit more promising for the coastal New Jersey town, as last year casinos were forced to close because of Tropical Storm Irene.
