Online Casino Rocking New Jersey & Pennsylvania

By | November 25, 2021

New Jersey’s online casino industry set another U.S. record by handling $1.3 billion in wagers in October, which led to record revenue, too. Meanwhile, online casinos posted another record month, which made New Jersey and Pennsylvania the first states to generate $1 billion in annual gross revenue from online casino betting, according to the PlayNJ website, which tracks gaming developments in the state.

New Jersey joined Pennsylvania as the first U.S. states to take in more than $1 billion in gross gaming revenue from online casinos and poker rooms in a single year with a record $127.0 million in October. That topped the previous record of $122.6 million set just last month, and was up 35.9% from $93.5 million in October 2020.

Online casinos and poker rooms have now generated $1.1 billion in revenue for the year, easily reaching $1 billion in annual revenue for the first time. Pennsylvania ($1.05 billion) also went over the $1 billion mark for the year after announcing its October gaming data on Wednesday.

“The rise in revenue in all forms shows that each pillar of the state’s gaming industry is benefiting from a rising tide,” Danzis said. “Online gambling has continued to grow since launch, but annual revenue has more than tripled since sports betting launched in 2018. As impressive as $1.1 billion in revenue in 10 months is, it might not have gotten there so soon without the legalization of online sports betting.”

Borgata/BetMGM led the market with $38.8 million in casino and poker revenue in October. Rival Golden Nugget was second with $34.5 million in revenue.For more information on the New Jersey and Pennsylvania online casino industry, visit the PlayNJ website.
