The official revenue figures have been released in the state of New Jersey and according to reports, the state was able to take in $8.4 million in a six week time frame. This is a nice amount, but would most likely have been much more if the launch had not consisted of connection issues, financial problems and minimal marketing.
Earning the majority of the revenues was the Borgata/PartyPoker joint venture with $3.75 million. Caesars Interactive earned $2.38 million since the soft launch on the 21st of November. The totals are a reflection of the betting patterns from the soft launch to the year-end. The state was able to secure around 126,000 online gaming account holders as of the last day of December.
The Division of Gaming Enforcement released the official information earlier today in a press release and reported the remaining online gaming numbers. Following behind was the Trump Taj Mahal who earned $883,037 while the Tropicana was not far behind with $748,589 in revenues. Up next it was the Trump Plaza with $427,739 in earnings while the Golden Nugget came in last with $179,120, all of which is Year to Date earnings.
The Golden Nugget earnings are much lower than the rest of the operators but can be related to the fact that they were late in officially going live. The testing phase took much longer with the casino than the others. As of now, a total of eight casinos are now licensed and can provide online wagering in the state of New Jersey.
Vernon Kirk, the Director of the Delaware State Lottery, has also announced that the statistics for online gambling in the state of Delaware should be released soon. The state began to offer online gambling on the 31st of October and has reported just over 4,000 gaming account registrations.
