New Jersey Online Casinos - $44.6 Million - Finish First Football Betting Season With Strong February RevenuesReading Time: 2 minutes

 

NJ Online casino gaming revenue dropped 5.5 percent in February compared to the prior month, according to figures released Wednesday by state regulators. Online casino operators reported $29.94 million in online casino gross gaming win and $1.81 million in online poker gross gaming win in February of 2019, based on the online revenue figures reported to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

New Jersey online casinos are still on a roll but cooled off going into the second month of 2019. NJ gambling sites generated $31.75 million in online poker and casino revenues in the month of February, which marked the first month-over-month decline since August 2018. With an additional $12.85 million in NJ online sports betting revenue, NJ online gambling operators generated a total of $44.6 million in online gross revenue compared to a total of $49.09 million in the previous month.

Golden Nugget Online Casino Group Continues To Be The Top License Holder

The market leaders, for nearly three consecutive years, are the Golden Nugget Casino Online group of operators, which includes Sugarhouse Casino Online and Betfair Casino. They generated total gross revenue of $10.70 million, which were heard to be led by strong cross performance from FanDuel Sportsbook into Betfair Casino. In second place in total market revenue, sits Resorts Digital Gaming which houses Resorts Online Casino, Mohegan Sun Online Casino, PokerStars Casino and DraftKings, providing a total online revenue of $6.66 million.

“Overall, these are great results from both online casino and sports betting apps. No one should be startled by the drop in sports betting revenue as the Super Bowl result was known to put a hurting on FanDuel and others, which helped lead to the large drop in sports betting revenue. All other signs, such as total handle, point to increasing popularity in sports betting both online and off; so newcomers like Aussie-based PointsBet Sportsbook have nothing to worry about,” said BonusSeeker.com Managing Editor, Rich Migliorisi.

The licensed NJ online casinos generated $31.75 million in casino and poker revenues in February 2019, down $1.85 million from the previous month.

Studies find links between loot box spending and problem gambling

Studies find links between loot box spending and problem gamblingReading Time: 2 minutes

 

New research has proved that there is a strong link between problematic gambling behaviours and spending money on loot boxes.

The results of the research are published in the journal PLOS One as two studies. The results indicate that people who spend more money on loot boxes are also more likely to be unable to keep their gambling habits in check.

“Loot boxes are extremely widespread. A recent analysis we did showed that they may feature in as many as 63% of mobile games. They’re extremely profitable, too: They’re estimated to have perhaps generated as much as $30 billion in revenue in 2018,” said study author David Zendle of York St. John University.

“They’re also highly worrying — there are clear parallels between loot boxes and potentially harmful activities like gambling. Given their prevalence, importance, and the lack of literature on them, I think a good question is ‘Why weren’t more people running these studies?’”

The researchers had 1172 gamers complete psychological surveys regarding problem gambling and loot box spending.

The participants all reported regularly playing at least of one of ten popular games that feature loot boxes: Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, League of Legends, Hearthstone, Overwatch, Counter-Strike: GO, FIFA 18, Rocket League, DOTA 2, Team Fortress 2, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.

“There is a link between loot box spending and problem gambling. However, we’re not sure if this means that loot boxes literally cause problem gambling, or if it means that people who are already problem gamblers spend significantly more money on loot boxes. In either case, though, it doesn’t look socially beneficial.”

On average, the participants reported spending $19.58 on loot boxes in the past month. But some had spent up to $2300.

The study replicates the finding of previous research conducted by Zendle and published in 2018. That study, which examined 7422 gamers, found that people with more severe gambling problems tended to spend more on loot boxes.

NESN, the television home of the Boston Bruins and Boston Red Sox, and VSiN (Vegas Stats & Information Network), started the telecast of VSiN’s Follow the Money morning show on March 18. It will be shown on NESNplus every weekday morning from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET.

Follow the Money, a three-hour show offering valuable betting information, with a lace of humour and entertainment, is hosted by Mitch Moss and Paul Howard.

“NESN has long been a leader in regional sports television, and there is no better partner to reach sports fans throughout New England,” said Brian Musburger, founder and CEO of VSiN. “As regulated sports betting expands across the country, VSiN will continue to partner with innovators like NESN to help inform the rapidly growing number of Americans wagering on sports.”

In the coming days, the show will include expert insight and analysis around March Madness, the annual NCAA basketball tournament which got underway on Tuesday.

“Sports-wagering regulations are changing quickly and with these changes, we anticipate an increased interest in obtaining relevant and reliable sports information,” said Rick Jaffe, NESN’s vice president of programming and production. “VSiN has both the experience and expertise to deliver the most up-to-date gaming data and analytics to New England’s sports fans.”
