The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE) has reported its gaming revenue results for December and the whole of 2023. 

All aspects of New Jersey’s numbers saw improvements across the board, except for table game revenue, which went down both December and the whole year.

Similarly, online gaming revenue showed steady growth. In December the figure was up from $151.5m to $180.3m, while its full-year figure was up from $1.66bn to $1.92bn. 

Sports wagering revenue reached $109.4m in December, representing a year-over-year increase of 24.8%. This meant that overall sports wagering revenue in New Jersey in 2023 surpassed the $1bn mark, being valued at $1.01bn, a significant increase of 31.9% from 2022’s numbers.

These positive numbers meant that overall New Jersey’s total gaming revenue in December 2023 increased 14.8% from December 2022 to $522.2m, while total gaming revenue in the state for the whole of 2023 increased 10.9% from the whole of 2022 to $5.78bn.
