Nevada breaks $1 million in online revenue

Thanks to the recent World Series of Poker in June, Nevada’s three online poker websites—WSOP.com, Ultimate Poker and Real Gaming—collected a combined .037 million in gaming revenue. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, it was the first time the state’s online poker community exceeded the million mark.

Caesars Interactive Entertainment, which owns the World Series of Poker and WSOP.com, reported that website traffic spiked by 40 percent in June. “We became the No. 1 internet poker offering in the country, outdoing the online sites in New Jersey as well,” Caesars Interactive spokesman Seth Palansky said. “It was a successful summer all around. There were a lot of lessons learned on making this work.”

Before June, Nevada’s poker websites averaged $921,800 per month in revenue, and the numbers in New Jersey and Delaware have been underwhelming. Delaware’s online gaming  industry brought in $1.2 million in revenue, according to state authorities who had projected $5 million in the first year. New Jersey’s six online casinos have produced $63 million in revenue. Most analysts predicted twice that amount.
