The state of Nevada kept their streak of billion dollar months rolling along int he month of January, and gambling across America set a record of $5.5 billion at the same time. Now, New Jersey has reported a jump of over 10% in their revenue.
The Division of Gaming Enforcement reported that the casino win for New Jersey’s nine casinos came in at $215 million for February, which was a modest growth of 1.2% from last year. So far in 2023, those properties have generated over $425 million, which is a growth of more than 7.5%.
Sports betting at state casinos and racetracks was able to produce close to $55 million in February, which was a huge jump of 77% from 2022. That total brought the year to date revenue to $127 million, which was still a healthy increase of almost 40%.
Not to be left out, online gambling came in at well over $140 million, which was a jump of close to 10% from last year.

That brings New Jersey gambling to just over $849 million so far this year, or a growth of 12.5%.
