Online slot and table game revenue hit a record high last month, beating out their previous biggest win by just a hair with a total of $24,142,472. The figure was propelled by strong performances from Golden Nugget, Caesars, Borgata and upstart Hard Rock.

With the few crumbs generated by online poker included, the state’s seven online casino licensees raked in $25,752,461, coming up just shy of the all-time high ($25.89 million) that the industry banked in July.

September NJ Sports Betting Revenue Reaches New Heights, Hits $184M Handle By Grant Lucas

Speaking on a panel at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas earlier this week, David Rebuck provided some insight into New Jersey’s sports betting figures from September.

They “will not disappoint,” the NJ Division of Gaming Enforcement director said. “I think (the industry) will be stunned.”

In a way, Rebuck’s sentiments proved prescient, as NJ sports betting revenue figures released by the DGE on Friday reached unprecedented levels.

Sports betting revenue totaled $24 million for September, with $184 million in handle.

An Odds Experiment: DraftKings Brings The Live Finals Concept To Sports Betting by Eric Raskin

Some competitors dream of hoisting the Stanley Cup, or holding that Wimbledon plate aloft, or wearing the green jacket. But the trophy with the broadest appeal, the one that resonates no matter what sport you play — or even if you don’t have an athletic bone in your body — is the oversized check.

What could be better than a symbol of victory that can be deposited into your bank account? It’s a universal truth that the major daily fantasy sports companies have been capitalizing on for eight years now, ever since FanDuel’s first-ever Fantasy Football Championship in Las Vegas awarded a $25,000 top prize in 2010. Rival DFS outfit DraftKings took it to peak levels in 2015, awarding an industry-record $5 million to Aaron Jones in its Fantasy Football World Championship.

NEW REPORT DETAILS A HECTIC FISCAL YEAR 2017/18 FOR PENNSYLVANIA GAMING REGULATORS BY ROBERT DELLAFAVE

To say that Fiscal Year 2017/18 was an active 12 months for Pennsylvania’s gaming regulatory body, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, would be putting it mildly.

Already home to 12-land based casinos, with a 13th on the way, Pennsylvania went all-in on gambling last October, when lawmakers passed legislation that legalized online gambling, sports betting, video gambling terminals at truck stops, gaming in airports, and daily fantasy sports. The new law also enables the construction of new Category 4 mini-casinos throughout the state, of which we now know there will likely be five.

Rediscovering The Equation That Made Las Vegas Famous by David G. Schwartz

Action T-Shirt

Las Vegas is more than a city, more than a metaphor. It is a gambling and tourism juggernaut that seemingly lives by its own rules. But time and again, circumstances have demonstrated that the city’s casino industry is not immune from the laws of economics. This summer has seen a slowdown of many of the city’s indicators of economic health, with troubling repercussions for casino stocks. So the question is, can Las Vegas resort operators rediscover the equation that helped Sin City rise to the top in the past?

There were many factors that put Las Vegas on the map as an international destination and have kept it there, but essentially the Las Vegas equation for success comes down to the balance of two forces: novelty and access. This was true in 1950, 1990, 2010, and remains true today.
