New Jersey's online gambling industry continues to deliver, as the New Jersey Casino Control Commission revealed that online revenues were up 31.6% in August to $16.1 million, padding the lower land casino revenues brought in during the same time.
Online poker made up 13.5% of online total revenue, which is lower than the 16.2% it made up in 2015, but casino was up to 86.5% in terms of share. The Borgata remained the biggest online gaming site in New Jersey, making up 23.2% of all online revenue brought in. Golden Nugget and Betfair were second with 21.6% share, while Caesars, Resorts and PokerStars, and the Tropicana rounded out the top five with 19.4%, 18%, and 17.7%, respectively.
Land casino revenue was down to $245.9 million, which was down 4.9% from last year, although it should be noted that this year saw two fewer weekends than last year, which likely caused the drop.
Online gambling has flourished in New Jersey this year, with monthly totals regularly surpassing the results seen last year.
