The Garden State is one of three states that currently offer iGaming, though revenue hasn’t met early projections. According to the latest numbers, online poker revenues dipped below $2 million in Oct., the lowest since Nov. 2013.

As PokerNews' Jason Glatzer recently wrote, “Online poker revenues in October were $1,967,904, representing a 5.64-percent decline from the $2,850,295 state's September revenue figures. The decline is even more sharp when taking into account October has 31 days in contrast to September only have 30 days, representing an average daily revenue decline of 8.67 percent.”
