NJ casinos, tracks won $4.7B in 2021; in-person winnings lag

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Casino gambling, sports betting and online wagering in New Jersey brought in over $4.7 billion in 2021. But the casinos’ core business — in-person gambling — won slightly less than it did in 2019, before the coronavirus pandemic hit. Figures released Friday show the nine casinos won a total of $2.5 billion last year from gamblers on their premises. That’s $1 billion better than they did in 2020, when the initial outbreak of COVID19 forced casinos to close for 3 1/2 months. But it was less than the $2.6 billion the casinos won from in-person gamblers in 2019.
