iGaming Business – The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has reported that the US state experienced an increase in online poker revenue in July, ending three consecutive months of declining sales figures.
The three licensed online poker operators in New Jersey took just under $2.2 million (€1.6 million) in July, which was up 4.8% on the $2 million generated in the previous month.
Despite the increase, July proved to be the second least successful month since online poker became regulated in New Jersey last year, with June of this year being the least successful in terms of revenue generation.
In addition to online poker revenue, the amount generated from online gaming as a whole in the state during the month increased to $10.1 million, up from $9.5 million in June.
The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, combined with the PartyPoker internet poker brand of its online gaming operator bwin.party, remains the market leader in the state with a 51.7% share.
