New Jersey's Online Gambling Market Stalls In April

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement reveled that the Garden State's online gambling market declined for the first time in April, bringing in $500,000 less than in March.

For the month, New Jersey online casinos brought in $11.4 million in revenue, which was down from $11.9 million the month before. That poor result was due to a 20% drop in poker revenue, which fell to $2.6 million. Casino games were up though, bringing in $8.8 million, up $200,000.

The Borgata led the casino race for the month, bringing in $4.1 million in online betting revenues. Caesars came in second with $3.05 million in revenues, while Tropicana was third with $2.15 million (up from $1.9 million in March).

To date 322,000 players have registered accounts to gamble in New Jersey. Registrations were up 10.6% for the month.
