| By Robert Fletcher
Gambling revenue in New Jersey increased 9.5% year-on-year in April despite a drop in slot machine win, the state’s primary source of gaming revenue.
Total revenue for the month reached $462.7m, up from $422.5m in April 2022 but 5.1% behind the $487.4m generated in March of this year.
All areas of the market experienced year-on-year growth, with the exception of land-based slots where revenue fell 3.2% to $169.7m. Retail table games revenue edged up 2.9% to $61.8m, but the slots decline meant total land-based revenue fell 1.6% to $231.5m.
