New Jersey online gaming revenue has been climbing for over two years now. It peaked in March, when it hit an all-time high. While April revenue declined from March by about 10 percent, it’s still the second highest since it launched in 2013. The chart, published by PlayNJ.com, demonstrates the dip, and explains that casino revenue in April far exceeded poker revenue ($23.8 million vs. $1.8 million). However, since intrastate poker was just getting started, poker aficiandos hope that liquidity in the poker rooms of Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey will increase. But those rooms will be controlled by WSOP.com and 888.com, since those are the only online poker rooms to be active in all three states, currently the only ones with active online gaming. Year-to-date, online gaming revenue in New Jersey has exceeded $92 million.
