According to a press release from the DGE, 197,782 iGaming accounts were created from Nov. 21, 2013 – Jan. 31, 2014.
Leading the way for iGaming in the Garden State is Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, which showed a $3.888 million online win in January. The only other company to show a seven-figure win was Caesars Interactive NJ ($3.029 million).

|Caesars Interactive NJ||$3,029,193||49%|
|Trump Taj Mahal||$858,351||4%|
Adam Krejcik, Managing Director of Digital and Interactive Gaming for Eilers Research, called the revenue increase a “slight disappointment” on Twitter:
NJ iGaming revenue for Jan-2014 = $9.5mm or +28% m/m...slight disappointment by our readFollow @akrejcik
Prior to the press release from the DGE, Krejcik said that a $10-$12 million win would’ve been “in line.” Anything less than $10 million would’ve been disappointing, and anything larger than $12 million would’ve been good.
Overall, Atlantic City showed a 9.2 percent decline in casino win compared to January of 2013. The DGE states that casino win was impacted by the Jan. 12 closing of the Atlantic Club Casino Hotel.
