Atlantic City revenue up in June due to Internet gambling

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) -- A nice boost from internet gambling helped push Atlantic City's casino revenue into the black in June.

The city's seven casinos took in almost exactly as much inside their physical structures ($197 million) as they did a year ago. But an increase of more than 23 percent in online winnings gave the city a total monthly increase of 1.8 percent compared to a year ago.

Caesars was the only casino to report a revenue decrease in June, down 1.9 percent to $24.6 million.

The biggest percentage increase was posted by the Golden Nugget, up nearly 23 percent to $23.5 million.

Among internet gambling providers, Golden Nugget widened its lead over four competitors in June, soaring to $5.5 million. That bested the Borgata, which was second at $3.8 million.
