The nine-casino market in Atlantic City reportedly had a very good April after chalking up a 23.8% rise year-on-year in aggregated gross gaming revenues to $265.4 million inclusive of a 58.9% overall increase in takings from online gambling to $36.6 million.
According to a Tuesday report from citing official figures from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (pdf), the seaside city’s casino win for the 30-day period swelled by 8.4% year-on-year to hit $207.6 million while takings from its budding sportsbetting sector hit $21.2 million.
The Press of Atlantic City reported that the most recent results represented an eleventh consecutive month of growth for the New Jersey casino market although only the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa managed to record a year-on-year rise in land-based win.
The figures showed that its in-house tally of $53.3 million corresponded to a comparable increase of only 0.5% while its iGaming total of $5.4 million represented a swell of some 19%.
The venue owned by Las Vegas-headquartered MGM Resorts International purportedly brought in some $24,760 from sportsbetting to push its overall April gaming revenues up by 2% to well over $58.8 million.
