New Jersey’s legal sportsbooks fared well in June generating $3.5 million in gross revenue on $16.4 million in wagers, according to official reporting released Thursday.

It’s exciting to see the first sports betting numbers out of New Jersey, but we have to remember it’s still limited in where and how it is offered,” said Dustin Gouker, lead sports betting analyst for PlayNJ.com. “The numbers will increase exponentially as more sportsbooks open, and as online betting kicks off.

Only Monmouth Park, Borgata — which both opened June 14 — and Ocean Resort Casino — which launched June 28 — operated sportsbooks during June.

Meadowlands Racetrack, which will operate as a FanDuel Sportsbook, is expected to open July 14.

We could see the first legal online sportsbooks launch in New Jersey this month, with many others aiming to be live by football season,” Gouker said.

Monmouth Park led the way with $2.3 million in gross revenue, generating $142,448 per day. Borgata tallied $986,831 in June revenue and $61,677 per day, while Ocean Resort had $192,671 in gross revenue by generating $64,224 per day.

“The initial numbers show bettors are turning up in droves to try out legal sports betting,” Gouker said. “This also means that sports betting is motivating people to visit the state’s tracks and casinos — a boon for their businesses.

Meanwhile, New Jersey’s legal online gambling industry generated $22.7 million in gross revenue in June, the 44th consecutive month that gross revenue has increased year-over-year. And with June’s collection of $3.9 million in tax revenue, online casinos have now generated $150.8 million for New Jersey since the industry was born in November 2013.

Every sign is positive for the online gambling industry,” said Steve Ruddock, online gambling analyst for PlayNJ.com. “$30 million in monthly revenue and $1 billion in lifetime revenue are within reach. The online gambling industry remains a growing force in New Jersey.

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has fined DraftKings for violating the self-exclusion rules.

DraftKings has to pay out penalties totalling $7000 to the gaming regulator and return $3277 to customers after failing to adhere to self-exclusion rules.

The regulator hit DraftKings with the maximum $5,000 civil penalty for taking wagers from customers who had requested a “cooling off” period be placed on their accounts.

DraftKings discovered an error within its systems in November 2018 whereby the “cooling off” period had been set to zero days. During the month in which the system was not correctly in place, 54 people who were not meant to be able to deposit were able to place bets totalling $28,887. They lost $3277, which DraftKings will now have to pay back.

Maine legislature has passed the sports betting bill. The Legislative Document 553 was given final approval by each chamber of the legislature and will now pass to Governor Janet Mills to be signed into law.

LD553 opens up the market to all of the state’s bricks and mortar gaming venues, such as commercial racetracks, off-track betting facilities, and commercial and tribal casinos. It will also allow mobile operators to apply for licences without the need for a land-based partner in the state.

Successful applicants will have to pay $20,000 as licence fee, 10% tax on land-based wagering revenue and 16% rate for mobile wagering. The bulk of revenue raised through these taxes will be allocated to the Maine General Fund.

Operators will be permitted to offer odds on all professional, collegiate and amateur sports events. Betting on events involving Maine-based colleges and universities will be prohibited. Only citizens aged 21 and above will be allowed to bet.
