“Every month should be as good as March was. When coupled with the very strong earnings report that came out last week, it’s clear that casinos have started to grow the market and increase their profits. That is generating a lot of positive interest in Atlantic City and has already attracted significant new investment in this market.”

“Online gambling is a critical component of Atlantic City’s revitalization efforts. Nearly three-and-a-half years since its inception, the train that is the New Jersey online gambling industry continues to gather steam. Every month the industry either flirts with or sets a new record for revenue.”
