New Jersey’s online gambling market continues to break records, but in-person casino revenue in Atlantic City remains below pre-pandemic levels.

Data from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement shows that in March, casinos and their online platforms generated over $197 million in revenue from online casino games, setting a new monthly record and marking a 19.9% increase from 2023.

Online slots accounted for the majority of this revenue at $194.8 million for the month, while internet poker revenue declined by 5.4% to $2.4 million.

Golden Nugget leads the online gambling market in New Jersey with monthly revenue of $57.1 million, followed by Resorts Digital with $48.9 million and the Borgata with $43.8 million.

Meanwhile, sports betting revenue decreased year-on-year by 3.6% to $89.7 million in March, although it was 32.7% higher than February's total. Sports bettors wagered $1.33 billion during the month, powered by the March Madness college basketball tournament.

Overall, including in-person casino winnings, internet gambling, and sports betting revenue, the industry gained over $526 million in March, an 8.1% increase from March 2023 and a 14.1% increase from February 2024.

However, in-person casino revenue continues to face challenges. Although the total amount won from in-person gamblers increased by nearly 5% year-on-year, only two of the nine casinos individually surpassed their pre-COVID revenue levels from March 2019.

Slot machines accounted for $172.7 million of all land-based revenue, while table games generated $67.0 million.

The Borgata led in-person casino revenue with $56.5 million, followed by Hard Rock with $44.3 million and Ocean with $40.6 million.

When considering online and sports betting revenue, Borgata remained in the lead with $106.6 million, followed by Golden Nugget with $70.6 million and Hard Rock with $58.3 million.

Resorts Digital, the casino's online platform, saw revenue decline by 11%, while Caesars Interactive NJ decreased by 23%.

Overall, casinos and tracks retained just under $90 million in sports betting revenue after expenses were paid.
