Internet gaming revenues jumped roughly 9 percent last month, climbing to $10.3 million from January's mark of $9.5 million, the state Division of Gaming Enforcement announced Wednesday.

Daily revenues in February saw a bump of approximately 21 percent, or $368,110, from the average of $305,195 per day in January.

As of February 28, the number of Internet gaming accounts that had been created sat at 248,241, up more than 25 percent from the January 31 tally of 197,782 total accounts created.

According to the DGE figures, Internet gaming accounted for just fewer than 5 percent of the total combined $209.4 million in revenue that Atlantic City's casinos brought in last month.

Excluding online wagering, last month's total brick-and-mortar casino revenue of just over $199 million represents a 6.2 percent decline from the same time last year, although the DGE is quick to point out that February's numbers did not include the Atlantic Club Casino Hotel, which closed its doors in January.

The Borgata continued to outpace its competitors both on the floor and online last month, leading the way with more than $4 million in Internet gaming revenue and more than $45.8 million in total casino win. Caesars Interactive NJ came in second online, posting revenue of over $3.3 million in February.
