Thursday May 12,2016 : APRIL REVENUES UP IN ATLANTIC CITY
Online casino performance the best yet.
The New Jersey Casino Control Commission chairman Matt Levinson had good news Thursday, announcing that Atlantic City revenues (including the online contribution) were up 8.1 percent year-on-year to $215 million in April 2016.
Taking out online returns, the increase was still 6.3 percent.
Online casinos did especially well, delivering revenues of $14.3 million for a new monthly record, besting the previous record in March 2016 of $13 million.
Levinson described the results as heartening, adding:
“Part of the increase is the result of casinos doing a better job of attracting new customers in a challenging business environment.”
In total revenue terms, Borgata topped the list, up 4.2 percent at $60 million, followed by:
Harrah’s – down 1.1 percent at $29.1 million
