New Jersey’s casino industry set a new monthly record in July for internet gambling, according to data released by state gaming regulators. The state’s casinos won more than $118 million in July 2021, a 35.7% increase from the $87.5 million the house won via online gambling halls in July 2020, when casinos were just beginning to reopen their brick and mortar establishments after a three-and-a-half-month shutdown due to the pandemic. According to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, the previous online gaming record came in March, when the casinos won $113.7 million.
