Revenues at the 12 land casinos fall 10.5 percent

Year-on-year comparison of revenues at Atlantic City's 12 land casinos showed a continued decline in March 2013, dropping by an overall 10.5 percent.

The casinos took in $238.5 million last month. Of that total, nearly $173 million came from slot machines, down nearly 10% from March 2012, and $65.6 million came from table games, down nearly 13% from a year ago.

The official stats show that only one casino saw a revenue increase in March - the Atlantic Club, which is the subject of an acquisition attempt by online poker giant The Rational Group (see previous reports) was up nearly 33% to $12.6 million, with slot-machine revenue up by more than 36% to $11.2 million.

At the negative end of the scale, the Trump Plaza Hotel Casino performed the worst, with revenues down nearly 31% to $6.8 million. It was recently sold to a California company and will be rebranded once the new owners take over later this year.

Statisticians said that overall slot-machine revenue declined for the month due to a 20% slide - around $7.2 million - in the amount of promotional credits that customers wagered last month compared to the same period last year.

For the first three months of 2013, Atlantic City's casinos won $656 million from gamblers, down more than 12% from the same period a year ago.
