Borgata and its partner Party Poker lost some market share to Caesars Interactive. This shows that WSOP and/or 888 have gained some market share. Ultimate Poker also saw a modest increase in its small share. Betfair, Trump Plaza’s Internet poker operator, posted rake of just $7 in February. Its Ongame platform is still without Golden Nugget, which has yet to launch its online poker product.
Total online poker rake declined 9 percent from January. This was offset by a 14 percent increase in casino win. Four of the six interactive licensees saw improvement in casino results in February over the previous month. Trump Taj Mahal and Trump Plaza were the two that posted declines.
Atlantic City casinos posted a win of $199.1 million in February 2014 from land-based gaming operations. This was a decline of 6.2 percent over February 2013. State gaming revenue fell just 1.5 percent year-over-year when including interactive gaming.
Golden Nugget, Revel and Tropicana all posted gains in casino revenue of at least 20 percent over February 2013. Trump Plaza was the largest percentage loser. Its gaming revenue dropped 24.9 percent over last year. It is also the lowest volume casino in Atlantic City.
There are now only 11 Atlantic City casinos listed in the monthly report released by New Jersey gaming regulators. Atlantic Club closed in January 2014 after falling into bankruptcy.
