Casinos in New Jersey have reason to celebrate, as Atlantic City gambling revenue seems to have bounced back from the pandemic slump. The numbers from August are in and show a 31% growth from 2020, with nearly $430 million taken in.
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement reports that while land based casinos generated over $262 million, online gambling was able to add another $113 million to the bottom line. Sports betting accounted for the remaining $52 million.
For Atlantic City gambling revenue, however, the year-to-date totals look good, sitting at nearly $3 billion. That would represent a healthy 85% increase from just over $1.6 billion last year.
