June’s revenue is ahead of the $364.0m recorded in July 2010 and is also a 4.9% increase on the $374.2m raised in May of this year. It came thanks to strong figures in all three verticals: land-based casino gaming, online gaming and sports betting.

Land-based casino revenue was a big contributing factor after New Jersey casinos were able open for the entire month this year, after closures in 2020. Casinos generated $214.5m, with $154.1m coming from slot machines and $60.4m coming from table games.

Internet gaming revenue was $107.1m, up by 26.1% from last year. Although the $2.2m which came from peer-to-peer games such as poker was on the decline (down 37.5%), other authorized games brought in $104.8m – 28.8% more than in 2020.
