Atlantic City’s casinos won marginally less from gamblers in August 2017 than they did the year before.

Figures released this week by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement reveal the seven casinos won $244.8 million in August, a decline of 0.4 percent compared with August 2016.

Industry experts note that if revenue from the now-closed Trump Taj Mahal is excluded, Atlantic City’s casino revenue was up by 5.5 percent from a year ago.

Internet gambling in New Jersey was up 32.4 percent in August compared with a year earlier with gambling outlets earning more than $16 million online last month.
