The double-digit percentage increases for monthly casino gaming revenue stopped in July but the market was still up compared to the prior year. Total gaming revenue for Atlantic City's nine casino properties was $323.3 million in July, an increase of 7.8% over last summer, according to figures released Wednesday by the state Division of Gaming Enforcement. Year-to-date gaming revenue for Atlantic City casinos is $1.85 billion, an increase of 18.4% over the first seven months of 2018.
