As the rest of the gaming community across the country enjoys a rebound, New Jersey gambling revenue has rebounded as well.
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement reported that total gaming revenue in the state rose 290% from last year at this time. In May of 2020, the state only made $96 million. But this May things turned around with a $374 million windfall.
Online gambling in New Jersey helped a lot, generating over $108 million, while sports betting brought in nearly $53 million.
The jump in New Jersey gambling revenue means that the state realized close to $38 million in taxes.
