Atlantic City's Casino Revenue Dips in March

Last Edited:

All the bad winter weather in March may be to blame for a decrease in revenue at Atlantic City's casinos.

The city's seven casinos brought in just over $218 million last month, which is a 1.5-percent monthly decline.

Internet gambling helped keep the casinos' revenue from decreasing too much, earning $25.5 million.

The Golden Nugget had the biggest percentage increase, up nearly 24 percent to $28 million, while Caesars had the biggest decline, down more than 25 percent.

But the big winner of the month was the Borgata, which earned $65 million in gambling revenue.

So far in 2018, Atlantic City's casinos are running nearly 6 percent behind the amount they won during the first three months of 2017.
