New Jersey Casinos Report A Record Month For Sport Betting
DraftKings and Fanduel continue to lead sports betting in New Jersey.
January brought New Jersey’s casinos over $385 million in sports wagers according to the latest revenue figures from the Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE). Around 80 percent of all wagers were made online.
Legal sports betting added a total of $18.8 million to New Jersey’s casinos’ bottom line in January. That was actually less than in December when they picked up $21 million. We’re now just over 6 months into New Jersey legal sports betting and the numbers have been excellent.
The state can’t complain about its receipts either. The New Jersey treasury picked up $3.2 million in sports betting taxes, money it didn’t get before legalizing sports betting. The market is still growing, with no end yet in sight, so the state’s tax revenues will get even bigger.
From the operator’s perspective there’s still a lot of competition for market share. DraftKings and FanDuel are the clear market leaders. The various casino partnerships make it impossible to break out their exact revenue figures, but they are very high.
The fact that the two DFS brands have done so well in New Jersey suggests that the US market likes the brands it already knows. The European brands are not doing badly, but perhaps they have overestimated the value of their names in this market.
