Atlantic City casino revenue drops in JanuaryFebruary 14, 2013 8:57 AM by Staff & Wire Reports
Revenue at Atlantic City’s casinos was down more than 13 percent in January compared with the same month a year ago.
It was an inauspicious start to what could be a seventh straight year of falling casino revenues in a market that used to be the nation’s second-largest but has since lost that title to Pennsylvania.
The city’s 12 casinos won $205.6 million from gamblers last month. Table games revenue fell by $5.1 million, to $67.1 million. Slot machine revenue fell by $26.2 million, to $138.5 million.
The slots numbers were affected by an $8.1 million decrease in promotional gambling credits that were wagered, which are a component of slot machine revenue totals.
Atlantic City’s casino revenue has fallen from a high of $5.2 billion in 2006 to just over $3 billion last year.

The Clippers have been playing well but they’ll need to step their game up a notch when they face the Grizzlies. Memphis, which has won 22 straight regular season home games, is favored by 3 with the total at 197.
Probably the most intriguing game on the Week 12 slate is Detroit’s visit to New England, where the league’s hottest offense, which belongs to the Patriots, faces the team that has the stingiest defense.
