During March 2019, the New Jersey state recorded its best ever online casino revenue figures with $40 million. This exceeded its previous high of $36 million by an incredible 11.5%.
Online gambling is growing fast. Since the launch of online sports betting, the growth in this segment is lifting other online segments such as online casino games (with the exception of online poker which is slightly odd). As the saying goes “The rising tide lifts all boats” – excluding poker boats which are grounded.
It appears that the ability to expand horizontally and cross market products has created the perfect online experience for NJ Online Gambling Operators.
Since the launch of online sports book in NJ only last August, growth has been steady with a sudden spike in March. Whether or not this is a seasonal trend has yet to be seen.

- Online casino revenue was $37 million in March 2019
- The increase from year on year to March 2019 is a staggering 53%
- Online poker is bucking the strong growth trend
