New Jersey internet gaming numbers were up across the board in December against the previous month’s action. Poker rake came in at $2.06 million, up 9 percent from the previous month. Casino win was $8.68 million, up 29 percent. The cumulative amount of $10.73 million was up 21 percent against last year.
Two-thirds of the casino move can be attributed to the $1.3 million slot win in November. The remainder appears to be based on growth and the change of season.
There are just four internet gaming licensees left in New Jersey. This is due to the loss of Ultimate Gaming and the moving of Betfair to Golden Nugget’s license.
