Sports betting, online gaming and two new properties are helping to push the casino industry toward a revenue benchmark in 2019 it has not reached since before the market began to contract. Atlantic City's nine casinos are on pace to eclipse $3 billion in total gaming revenue this year. The industry last reported more than $3 billion in gaming revenue in 2012, when there were 12 operational casinos and online gambling and sports betting had not yet been introduced. In 2018, Atlantic City's total gaming revenue was $2.86 billion.
