Gamblers wagered more than $293 million on sports in New Jersey in August, helping Atlantic City’s casinos win 13% more than they did a year ago. Figures released Thursday by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement show the nine casinos won nearly $339 million for the month, assisted by sports betting money. The Borgata won nearly $80 million, up 4.7% from a year ago, and said it had its best summer since it opened in 2003.
