ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — The growth of New Jersey’s Internet gambling slowed somewhat in February, with the Atlantic City gambling web sites posting a nearly 9 percent increase for the month.
The 16 online gambling sites had posted a 28 percent gain in January.
In February, the online sites won $10.3 million, up from $9.5 million in January. Including their online gambling operations, Atlantic City’s 11 casinos won $209.4 million in February, a 1.4 percent decline compared to February 2013, when the Atlantic Club was still open.
It shut down in January of this year.
Excluding Internet revenue, the 11 casinos took in just under $200 million in February. That’s down 6.2 percent from a year ago, but only 1.5 percent if the Atlantic Club is excluded.
