The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement show that the casinos in total won just shy of $299 million from in-person gamblers, slightly more than the $277 million won pre-pandemic in July 2019.

Some casinos did not fare as well though.

Bally’s, Borgata, Golden Nugget, Harrah’s and the Tropicana each won less from in-person gamblers last month than they did in July 2019.

The state's sports betting handle fell 16% from June.  More of a concern, however, July's sports betting handle was 8% lower than a year earlier.

This total represented the lowest monthly amount for operators since July 2020, when wagering was $315.1 million.
