VIDEO: Internet Gambling Increases in RevenuePosted:
ATLANTIC CITY - Atlantic City's eight remaining casinos saw their revenues increase by slightly less than 1 percent in November, but had it not been for a big boost from internet gambling, it would have been a down month for the resort.
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement released figures that show the casinos took in $204.3 million dollars in November, an increase of 0.9 percent from november of 2014. The amount of money won by gamblers at brick and mortar casinos was down 1.4 percent, but that was offset by an increase of more than 50 percent in online gambling revenue.
Internet gambling brought in more than 13 million in November, compared to just under 9 million in November of last year.
So far this year, the casinos are down 7.1 percent from the first 11 months of 2014.
