New Jersey Sports Betting Boosted in January by Football PlayoffsReading Time: 2 minutes

 

New Jersey sportsbooks raked in nearly $400 million in bets in January as the state’s bettors took advantage of their first opportunity to bet legally on the NFL Playoffs. January’s record $385.3 million handle, which netted $18.8 million in revenue, was up from the $319.2 million New Jersey’s online and retail sportsbooks collected in December.

“January has historically been considered part of the offseason in Atlantic City, but the crowds in the city’s sportsbooks on NFL Sundays suggest otherwise,” said Steve Ruddock, analyst for PlayNJ.com. “In addition to creating jobs and a new revenue stream for the state, sports betting is helping transform Atlantic City into a year-round destination.”

New Jersey’s online sportsbooks accounted for $304.97 million, or 79 percent, of total bets in January. Retail sportsbooks made up the remaining 21 percent. That compares to 76 percent of total bets flowing through online sportsbooks in December.

New Jersey sports betting revenue, or the “win,” was down 9.9 percent from $20.8 million in December. January’s results followed a slightly underwhelming Super Bowl performance, which ended with a $4.5 million loss for New Jersey’ssportsbooks on a handle just short of $35 million.

“Super Bowl betting didn’t quite reach expectations, but there were definitely some positives,” said Dustin Gouker, lead sports betting analyst for PlayNJ.com. “The NFL Playoffs generated significant action in January, and anecdotal evidence suggests visitation to Atlantic City for the weekend of the Super Bowl was way up. All in all, it was a successful first season of the NFL for New Jersey’s sportsbooks.”

DraftKings Sportsbook — which operates under the Resorts license — fueled Resorts’ $6.9 million in January online gross revenue, up from $6.7 million in December. Resorts accounted for 48 percent of the state’s online win for the month. FanDuel Sportsbook/Pointsbet was just behind with $5.9 million.

FanDuel Sportsbook at The Meadowlands remains the dominant retail sportsbook, gaining $1.2 million in January gross revenue, down from $3.6 million in December. FanDuel — which represents 36 percent of New Jersey’s retail win in January — was followed in gross revenue by Monmouth Park’s $830,792.

“The battle for market share, particularly in the online market, will continue to be fascinating as the year plays out,” Gouker said. “FanDuel has gained on DraftKings in the online market. But through the entire NFL season, the smaller online brands have yet to make a significant challenge to the two dominant forces in the market.”

LEGAL ONLINE CASINOS

Legal online casinos generated a record $33.6 million in January — up from $29 million in December — and $5.9 millionin tax revenue. New Jersey’s online casino and poker industry could generate $400 million in revenue in 2019, according to PlayNJ.com.

New Jersey’s online gambling industry grew nearly 22 percent in 2018 and has grown 50 percent since 2016, and that growth will continue,” said Ruddock, lead online gambling analyst for PlayNJ.com. “There are some concrete reasons why. Two new casinos opened in 2018 with online gaming, Atlantic City’s revitalization efforts continue to pay off, the popularity of live dealer games that have added to an already robust portfolio of online casino games, and the legalization and launch of New Jersey sports betting.”

Criticism mount against casinos in GoaReading Time: 1 minute

 

Casinos in Goa, India, continue to attract criticism. An organisation called Aam Aurat Admi Against Gambling (AAAAG), which means the organisation of common men and women against gambling, has asked the government to shut down all offshore gambling companies in the state.

“The Bharatiya Janata Party government had promised that the casinos would be removed from the Mandovi,” said Sabina Martins, the convenor of the organisation opposing gambling. “[late] Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had categorically stated that within four years of his tenure, the casinos would be phased out. Instead of phasing them out, the term of the existing casinos has been extended by another six months.”

AAAAG main objection is against the new Big Daddy casino, which was added after the government’s assertion.

“Amendments and regulations are made to favour casinos,” co-convenor of AAAAG, Anand Madgaoncar said. “While the world over, regulations govern casinos on the percentage of money to be given back to players, in Goa the casinos are having a field day looting them as no such regulations are implemented. There are no accountability mechanisms to check whether those employed are free from exploitation and addiction.”
