New Jersey’s casinos, horse tracks and their online partners won $401.5 million from wagers last month, a 2.2% increase from June 2021, according to figures released Friday by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.
So far this year, those entities have won $2.43 billion, a 15.2% increase over the $2.11 billion reported at the same point last year, the report said.
June’s figures indicate a continuation of the recovering trend for Atlantic City’s nine casinos since the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Separate from racetracks, the casinos’ total gaming revenue, which includes brick-and-mortar hauls, internet wins and sports wagering revenue, grew more than 9% this June over June 2021, increasing to more than $377.4 million.
