New Jersey Sports Betting Frenzy Ebbed In December by John Brennan

The New Jersey sports betting magic carpet ride fell to Earth in December — about a month or two earlier than expected.

After double-digit percentage increases in handle in every month since the legal form of gambling began in mid-June, the state Division of Gaming Enforcement figures released on Monday showed a flattening of online sports betting dollars and a decrease in brick-and-mortar sports betting.

Of course, sensible gamblers naturally would lie lower in the last month of the year so as to leave extra money aside for Christmas presents and other holiday planning. Then there’s the vacation factor; a New Jersey bettor can’t place bets while spending a few days in another state or country. There were also fewer college football games to bet on in December than in the previous months.

OCEAN’S TIDE IS RISING, THANKS TO ATLANTIC CITY’S MOST POPULAR SPORTSBOOK BY ERIC RASKIN

Of all the encouraging figures in the most recent New Jersey gaming revenue report, perhaps the most eye-catching was the number 1,908,742. That was the revenue, in dollars, generated by the live sportsbook at Ocean Resort Casino in November, good for No. 1 by a healthy margin among Atlantic City casinos — more than doubling runner-up Borgata.

Give them the gift of choice with a Brightech - LED String Lights, Modern Floor Lamps, and Magnifer Lamps gift card.

Ocean has a tough act to follow, but not in the traditional sense of a predecessor setting a high standard. Quite the opposite. Revel Atlantic City occupied that same space at the end of the Boardwalk for 29 inglorious months from 2012-2014, going down as one of the biggest all-time financial failures in casino history. It set a precedent that had many in the industry expecting Ocean to fail from the moment it re-opened with its new ownership, new management, and new name in June 2018.
