Caesars Interactive Entertainment has revealed the cities that online gambling has proven to most popular in the first 100 days that the games have been legal.
Toms River was the most popular spot for punters logging into Caesars' various internet betting sites, while Jersey City was second.
The average time spent on the HarrahsCasino and CaesarsCasino casino betting sites was 43 minutes. Poker sites have more time spent, as WSOP users averaged 76 minutes online.
Mobile is also popular for online poker as WSOP reports 26% of its traffic comes through mobile phones and tablets.
Hudson County is one area that is seeing a lot more traffic than the rest of the state, a stat that Caesars cannot explain.
“We don’t have any rationale for why it is that the towns rank so high," noted Seth Palansky Caesars Interactive Spokesman. “We have just strictly pulled the numbers for the first 100 days of operating in the marketing and that is what the data shows us. There is no linkage, special marketing or initiatives targeting (Hudson County) over others.”
As of the most recent report on the industry released by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, 291,241 New Jersey online betting accounts have been registered. There are currently 14 sites approved to offer cyber gaming in the Garden State, with 7 casinos running the sites.
