New Jersey Online Casinos Shattered Records in 2017, but Analyst Sees More Subdued Growth in 2018 as Market Matures
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Analysts from DGS Media, which tracks New Jersey's legal online gambling and casino industry on its website, NJOnlineGambling.com, have released a new white paper that recaps an unparalleled year of growth for the regulated New Jersey online gambling industry in 2017 and takes an in-depth look at what 2018 has in store for the burgeoning industry.
The white paper, titled "New Jersey Online Gambling 2017 Recap and 2018 Outlook: Five Years, $1 billion," highlights trends driving the industry's growth, including the proliferation of Live Dealer games; the debut of new formats, such as Slingo, Scratchers, and Virtual Sports; a rather dramatic increase in the number of online slot terminals; a number of newer online casino operators hitting their stride, including offerings from SugarHouse and MGM; and the spread of PayPal as a deposit and withdrawal option amongst more operators.
The white paper also provides both "by the numbers" and a competitive analysis of New Jersey online casino licensees, including Borgata (whose license also covers the PartyPoker, PlayMGM, Pala and Scores brands within New Jersey's borders); Caesars (including WSOP, 888 and Harrah's); Golden Nugget (including Betfair and SugarHouse); Resorts (including Mohegan Sun and PokerStars); and Tropicana (including Virgin-branded online casinos).
The white paper estimates both bull and bear case revenues for both the state's online gambling industry and each operator.
Even more new brands, new formats, interstate poker liquidity and the possibility of the federal ban on sports betting, known as PASPA, being lifted round out the base case for the industry as a whole.
Market maturity, delays and operator neglect as operators turn their focus to the state of Pennsylvania, which is taking steps to welcome the industry in 2018, are factors which could see the rapid pace of growth begin to slow.
The paper's lead author, New Jersey-based Robert DellaFave, serves as Senior Analyst for DGS Media. DellaFave frequently contributes his analysis of the regulated online gambling industry to a number of media outlets. His white papers have been cited by media outlets including Yahoo Finance, ESPN, The Morning Call, and others. Analyst Ryan Ocello also contributed to the report.
