Overall gaming win was down, but voters could approve a scheme to expand casino gambling outside of Atlantic City

New Jersey saw record online gaming figures in December and full-year growth of more than a fifth, but overall revenue continued to fall in 2015.

Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) figures show that state-licensed online operators brought in revenue of $14.0m (€12.9m) in December, a six per cent rise on November and 30.8 per cent higher than December 2014’s total.

For the full year 2015, the state’s online win totalled $148.8m, some 21 per cent higher than 2014. Total online casino revenue in 2015 came to $125m, up one-third from 2014, while poker revenue fell 18% to $23.8m.

Total land-based casino win was $177.6m, down 1.2 per cent on December 2014. Thanks to the online rise, monthly total gaming win was up 0.6 per cent to $191.7m.

For the full year, total gaming win was down 6.5 per cent at $2.56bn, although the figure for current operators was up 3.1 per cent.

Voters are set to be asked later this year if casinos should be allowed in areas other than Atlantic City for the first time.
