According to figures released Monday by the state Department of Gaming Enforcement, online gaming revenues in New Jersey jumped 15.2 percent from $10.3 million in February to $11.9 million in March.

March also saw a 17.5 percent increase in online gaming accounts created with 291,625 total accounts as of March 31.

But despite the internet gaming numbers, March was still a down month for the industry as a whole.

Excluding the now-shuttered Atlantic Club Casino Hotel, total gaming revenue fell by 1.9 percent from $225.8 million in March 2013 to $221.5 million in March 2014.

Caesars, Golden Nugget, Resorts, Revel and Tropicana all reported revenue increases last month while Bally's, Borgata, Harrah's, Showboat, Trump Plaza and Trump Taj Mahal all posted losses.
