The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement released revenue figures for November internet gaming. The results were mixed. The difference can be attributed to a win of $1.3 million by a lucky HarrahsCasino.com player on the Millionaire Genie game.
Online poker revenue came in at $1.9 million, a drop of just under 5% from October. Casino games posted a win of $8.7 million, down about 8%. The loss was entirely due to the massive jackpot win.
The Borgata/Party partnership continued to hold its number one position in New Jersey with revenue of $3.4 million. Tropicana was second with $2.2 million in casino win. Golden Nugget earned $1.5 million, while Caesars Interactive posted a win of $1.1 million.
Betfair moved to Golden Nugget’s license on November 21. It dropped online poker from its list of games available on December 1. The Caesars Interactive numbers reflect the $1.3 slot jackpot.
Atlantic City Results
Atlantic City posted yet another negative month when compared against the previous year. Atlantic City casinos won $194 million in November, down 14% from the previous year.
Borgata continued its Atlantic City dominance. It won $59 million in November, up 9.9% from the previous year. This gave it a 30% market share in Atlantic City, which now host just eight casinos.
Golden Nugget was the biggest winner on a percentage basis. It won $16 million in November, up 63% from 2013. Resorts and Tropicana also posted double-digit gains.
Bally’s and Trump Taj Mahal were the only two Atlantic City casinos that posted a loss in revenue over the previous year. Bally’s was down 5%, while Trump Taj Mahal was down 20%. Trump Taj Mahal announced that it will close on December 20, a date that has been bumped back several times as it continues to negotiate with creditors and labor in an attempt to keep the doors open.
