(Atlantic City, NJ) -- Atlantic City's casinos continue to see an increase in revenue.
Numbers released by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement show gambling profits rose more than 20-percent last month, compared to June of last year. That's the 13th month in a row revenue experienced an increase in the double digits. However that may be the end of the trend, as Hard Rock Atlantic City and Ocean Resort Casino opened at the end of June 2018. New Jersey also legalized sports betting around the same time.
New York casinos, including the Resorts World Catskills Casino in Sullivan County, are hoping they will get a similar bump when sports betting becomes legal in the Empire State.Lawmakers earlier this year passed the sports betting legislation, and casinos plan to be ready to take bets by football season.
