The status of gambling in Atlantic City was not looking good in the previous years. However, this has changed thanks to the growth of online gambling. Reports have it that casinos in Atlantic City experienced a 1.7% increase in revenue for the month of October.
Though this might not sound much, it’s still a considerable growth as the city hasn’t experienced this in the years prior. If it was not for the $20.4 million revenue from online gambling, all the seven casinos in the city would have experienced a 0.3 % decline in revenue for October. The casinos in the city earned $203 million in October of 2016.
