New Jersey online casinos’ $180.3 million in December revenue surpassed NJ’s November gaming revenue by around $9 million. And it exceeded NJ’s October 20223 gaming revenue by around $14 million.

The biggest factor in December’s record-breaking revenue growth? Consistent gains from every casino but Bally’s and Resorts.
