Revenue Up For Surviving Atlantic City Casinos
The casinos that were open in both September, 2013, and September, 2014, saw an increase in revenue according to figures released today.
Including internet gambling revenue, which didn't exist a year ago, all of Atlantic City's casinos (including the properties that have closed) won just over $209 million in September -- that's down from around $240 million in September, 2013. When the casinos that have closed are removed from the equation, there was a 9.1 percent increase in revenue year-over-year ($207.7 million last month compared to $190.5 million in September, 2013).
Internet gambling took in $10.2 million in September, down $300,000 from August.
Comparing September, 2013, to last month, Borgata continues to financially dominate Atlantic City, posting a 13 percent increase in revenue. Golden Nugget had the largest percentage gain - its revenue is up 51.6 percent from a year ago.
