Atlantic City, New Jersey

Results from the first half of 2022 are in and according to gambling revenue numbers released by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement and the Michigan Gaming Control Board, compiled by OddsSeeker.com: NJ online casino & poker sites generated $814,519,523 in revenue versus $757,024,184 for Michigan online casino & poker sites in the first half of 2022.

Adjusted for population

  • New Jersey: $87.89 Gambling Revenue per capita (9,267,130 population - 2021 Est. Census.gov)
  • Michigan: $75.31 Gambling Revenue per capita (10,050,811 population - 2021 Est. Census.gov)

*Population data from https://www.census.gov/

While online gambling is relatively new to Michigan (started in January 2021 compared to Nov 2013 for New Jersey), the rapid growth of the industry exposes incredible pent-up demand that likely exists across many states where online gambling is yet to be legalized.

"Based on the year-over-year growth trajectory for New Jersey, since inception, it seems clear that Michigan will inevitably pass New Jersey online gambling revenues and become the largest and most important betting and iGaming market in America.” said Frank Weber, Sports Editor at OddsSeeker.com

NJ online casino sites set a new revenue record of $140,655,053 in March ’22 which helped them stay ahead of Michigan online casinos in the first 6 months of 2022. And while the revenue between the states remains neck-and-neck, it's good to note that both states’ revenues have contracted over the past two months.

With an economic downfall looming and the summer lull in full effect, it’s no surprise revenues continue to fall. The question that still remains is; will online gambling sites continue to grow throughout the year, especially with Football season gearing to kick-off shortly?
