New Jersey Online Casino Revenue Slumps

New Jersey Online Casino Revenue Slumps

April wasn’t a great month for New Jersey online gambling, and most can point the finger to a decline in online marketing due to strict gaming laws imposed by the state.

Recent changes to affiliate contracts prevented some sites from displaying New Jersey ads which threw a curveball to the budding legal industry in the state. 

Internet gaming win was $11.4 million for the 30 days in April, compared to $11.9 million for the 31 days in March. New Jersey online gaming began in November.

Those figures were according to a state report released Wednesday.

April did have 30 days, while March had 31. Thus, Internet gaming win per day was relatively flat at $380,958 for April and $383,173 for March, but there was no growth.

Internet gaming win for April consisted of $2.6 million from online poker and $8.8 million in the other casino games. The poker win was a decline of more than 19 percent compared to March.

Just three operators—Borgata, Caesars Interactive and Trump Taj Mahal—have online poker operations in New Jersey, while the rest are only running the other games.
