Atlantic City Casino Win Down $4.6M in January

Money flowing in from Internet gambling helped Atlantic City’s casinos avoid what would have been a much worse month in January.

The city’s 11 casinos took in $195.7 million. That was down 4.6 percent from a year ago.

But without the $9.5 million that casinos won through their Internet operations, Atlantic City’s casinos would have seen overall revenue fall by 9.2 percent for the month.

January was the second full month that Internet gambling was conducted in New Jersey, after beginning in late November.

The casinos won $7.4 million over the Internet in December. January’s $9.5 million represented a 28 percent increase since then.

The city’s overall revenue figures also were hurt by the Jan. 13 shutdown of the Atlantic Club Casino Hotel.
