LAS VEGAS – Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, online gambling has become more and more of the normal thing to do. With that, online poker is currently at an all-time high in terms of the revenue that it has been bringing into the states.
Starting with New Jersey, they have plenty of online gambling sites, but offer just three online poker platforms. Poker players can get their game on, on WSOP.com which is affiliated with 888Poker, PokerStars and PartyPoker.
Online poker revenue in New Jersey saw a 44% increase from February 2020 to February 2021. They brought in a total of $2.48 million in the month of February alone, however, it was slightly down from January as January brought in $2.7 million in revenue.
With that slight drop though, New Jersey also dropped in the second in terms of the highest online poker revenue behind Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania Online Poker Revenue
Pennsylvania has made history as they are now sitting at the top of the list when it comes to online poker revenue after they brought in $2.5 million in revenue in February. This was also a slight dip from the month of January as January saw $2.7 million in revenue.
Pennsylvania has just one online poker operator in the state in PokerStars which served as the only way to play poker in the state during the pandemic lockdown which forced the seven live poker rooms to close their doors for months which led to such a big revenue jump.
Delaware Online Poker Revenue
Looking at Delaware, they also saw a minor drop off in their monthly revenue from January to February as they recorded $39,193 in revenue. However, since last year in February, the state has seen a 25% increase in total revenue.
There is only one online poker operator in the state which is 888Poker which is affiliated with Delaware Park, Dover Downs and the Harrington Casino and Raceway. Something that has been backing up the Delaware online poker revenue rising is the fact that in-person poker rooms have yet to reopen since COVID-19 shut them down in 2020.
