Borgata broke Atlantic City’s monthly revenue record last month

  • Borgata Casino recorded the highest ever one-month win for an Atlantic City casino last month.
  • The Marina District casino recorded a total win of $124 million, beating the previous record of $112 set in September 2021 by Borgata itself.
  • Its in-person earning of $77 million last month was just $4 million shy of its best retail month of July 2019.

Borgata Casino just had the best month ever for an Atlantic City casino.

According to figures released by New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement last week, the state’s largest and most successful casino has broken the record for the largest combined payout from in-person and online betting.

Per Borgata President Travis Lunn:

“When you look at the health of Atlantic City as a whole, it shows that people are visiting and enjoying the activities they love. I believe this is a sign and recognition of the reinvestment that our industry is placing in Atlantic City.

The best month of all Atlantic City casinos

According to the report, Borgata earned nearly $77 million in retail casino operations during the month of July 2022. This figure includes $53.6 million from slot machines, $21.7 million from table games and $1.3 million from poker.

The total represented a 41% increase from June 2022 and was 20.2% higher than July 2021. But while those numbers are impressive, the total amount of winnings was about $4 million less than the Borgata’s best retail month ever in July 2019.

But Borgata also generated $43 million from its online casino app while its sports betting business earned $4.4 million last month. Overall, this resulted in a total casino payout of $124 million which shattered the previous state record of $112 million which was set in September 2021 by the Borgata pit itself.

Market leader among 9 AC casinos

Borgata is the market leader among Atlantic City’s nine casinos and is one of three (the other being Hard Rock and Ocean) to show an increase in GG. The performance of all three, particularly that of Borgata, helped Atlantic City increase its GGR by 8% in July 2022.

It is difficult to assess Borgata’s performance in Atlantic City with that of other casinos elsewhere in the United States due to differences in how states report gaming revenue. The American Gaming Association, which is the leading casino trade group in the United States, does not track industry revenue at the level of each individual property. Meanwhile, the nation’s casino capital, Nevada, does not report on individual casinos and only publishes state total numbers.

But for comparison, Borgata’s July total was nearly double the amount any Pennsylvania casino won in a single month. The state record is $65 million, set by the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Grantsville, Pennsylvania in April 2022. This figure also includes the number of internet gambling and sports bets.
