Billions in wagers: The top places to gamble in NJ
TRENTON – New Jersey casinos, racetracks and their sports-betting partners have reported more than $4.3 billion in gaming revenue in the first 10 months of 2022, according to the state Division of Gaming Enforcement.
That’s an increase of nearly 11% from what was reported through October one year earlier.
In fact, the total is nearly as much as was reported through November of 2021, putting casinos and tracks nearly one month ahead of last year’s pace.
Less than 55% of that revenue, a little over $2.35 billion, was recorded the old-fashioned way – in person at the nine Atlantic City casinos. The casino win included $1.73 billion on slot machines, accounting for almost 75%, and $622 on million on table games.
About 32% of the gaming revenue, $1.37 billion, reflects what casinos have won through internet gaming. And revenue from sports wagering, almost $595 million, accounts for the other 14%, both at the casinos’ sportsbooks and through their online partners or ‘skins.’

Sports wagering at racetracks
Sports betting through the state’s horse tracks has amounted to around $367 million.
Most of that has been at the Meadowlands Racetrack – and roughly 90% of that has been through online wagers, where the track partners with FanDuel. The Meadowlands has netted more than half the Atlantic City casinos through the first 10 months of 2022.
