Atlantic City’s gaming revenue continued its declining trend in 2015

That is despite contributions from online gambling.

This year’s gambling revenue for the eight remaining casinos in AC, resulted in less than half of 2006’s peak.

US.- According to the New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement figures, total land-based gaming revenue in 2015 amounted to over US$2.41b, falling 7.8 percent in comparison to 2014’s US$2.62b. Including online gambling revenue, the annual figure amounted to US$2.56b experiencing a decline of 6.5 percent. December kept the losing trend as its revenues amounted to US$177.6m falling 1.2 percent year-on-year.

2015’s total is less than half the US$5.2b Atlantic City reported in 2006, before the time of online contributions. Pennsylvania and other nearby regions had not launched their casinos yet by that time, though. These figures come just in time to contribute to the discussion of whether or not New Jersey’s constitution should be amended to allow two casinos north state.
