Internet gaming win in the US state of New Jersey was $25.6m in March, up 17.6 per cent year-on-year, against $21.7m in March 2017, tempering the 3.6 per cent drop in land-based win.

Total gaming win across the land-based and online casino industry in the Garden State was $218.5m, a 1.5 per cent drop on the $221.9m posted in the same month last year.

Year-to-date figures echo the monthly trends with total industry win down 5.9 per cent to  $594.9m. In contrast, online gaming win to date this year has increased 17.3 per cent to $69.5m for 2018.

The leading online gaming brand in the state continues to be Golden Nugget. A year-on-year 40 per cent jump took Golden Nugget’s March win to $8.66m, nearly double the totals posted by each of Borgata, Caesars Interactive, Resorts and Tropicana.

The largest land-based operator remains Borgata, which saw a modest 0.6 per cent year-on-year rise to a win of $60.29m. The biggest loser was Caesars, which saw brick-and-mortar win slump 25 per cent to $21.9m in the month.
