For the first time ever, Borgata Online Casino is ranked No. 1.
According to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement’s March figures, Borgata surpassed Golden Nugget in revenue for the month, thanks to a 40% increase, which totaled $36.2 million.
Before Borgata took over the top spot, Golden Nugget had been the No. 1 online casino in the New Jersey market for the past four years. They, too, had an increase from February to March, but it was not nearly enough to keep Borgata down.
According to the figures, Golden Nugget’s increase in March was 14%, totaling $31.8 million. That figure was a record for the casino, which also includes Betfair, SugarHouse and BetAmerica under their portfolios.
The results show just how far Borgata has come in closing—and now eliminating—the gap with Golden Nugget. Much of this can be credited to the success of BetMGM over the recent past.
The revenue increases that both Borgata and Golden Nugget saw in March were reflective of New Jersey as a whole, which set another record month for online gambling, at $113.7 million. The figure marks the second time in three months that the state has reached the triple digits (In January, New Jersey recorded $103.8 million.)
Other figures that came from the state’s latest release:
- Casino figures are dominating the online casino gambling side, with over 97% of revenue to just over 2% for poker.
- Sports betting ticked up after a down month in February, which was likely due to the NCAA basketball tournament. In March, nearly $860 million was bet in New Jersey online sports books, an increase of nearly $120 million from the previous month
