Bolstered by the rollout of online and mobile sports betting, the total taken in by New Jersey gambling sites soared to $184 million in September, almost double the amount wagered the previous month.

The numbers for September, published Friday by the Division of Gaming Enforcement, showed patrons bet $105 million at online sports books and $79 million on-site at racetracks and casinos.

 

New Jersey’s total take on sports betting now stands at $337 million since it formally introduced legal wagering June 14. In August, patrons bet $95.7 million.

 

There are two racetracks, Meadowlands and Monmouth Park, with operational sportsbooks. Six Atlantic City casinos accept bets: Bally’s Atlantic City, The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Golden Nugget Atlantic City, Harrah's Resort Atlantic City, Resorts Casino Hotel and Ocean Resort Casino.

 

The first online and mobile sportsbook opened Aug. 1 through a partnership between Resorts Casino Hotel and DraftKings. Formally called Resorts Digital, the partnership in sports betting revenue with $8.5 million. Six other online and mobile betting venues have since become operational.
