Casino NJ, Online, Sports Betting Revenue Up 10% in August | app

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (AP) β€” New Jersey casinos, racetracks that offer sports betting and online partners of both types of gambling venues earned $470.6 million from gamblers in August, up from more than 10% from a year earlier, according to figures released Friday by state gambling regulators.

The amount of money won by in-person gamblers in casinos was nearly $274 million, up 4.4% from the previous year. But that total was still lagging behind the August 2019 level, before the coronavirus pandemic hit, when the total was over $286 million.
