Atlantic City Casinos Post Loss in Monthly RevenueLast Edited:
For the first time this year, Atlantic City's casinos posted a loss in monthly revenue, but it's not all bad news.
The amount of money the casinos won from gamblers did decline by 1.6 percent in April, but that figure does include the now-closed Trump Taj Mahal casino, which shut down in October.
When the Taj Mahal is excluded the seven surviving casinos saw a revenue increase of nearly 6 percent in April compared to a year ago.
Figures released by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement show the casinos won more than $211 million in April.
Internet gambling was up 22.6 percent for the month.
The Golden Nugget was the big winner going up more than 17 percent compared to a year ago.
