Jersey Online Gambling Revenue Grows While Delaware Numbers Stagnate – The effect of “critical mass” on poker-play pool liquidity can be seen in the contrasting online-gambling revenue numbers posted in February by eastern US states New Jersey and Delaware, both of which went live with online-gambling services (including poker) in November. New Jersey’s monthly revenue topped $10 million for the first time in February, more than a 20% day-over-day gain from January’s numbers, and the state has logged roughly a quarter of a million real-money signups in less than four months. Meanwhile, much-smaller Delaware has struggled, seeing declining signups and revenue in each of the past two months. Delaware’s small size and growth struggles are part of the impetus for the player-sharing deal it recently signed with Nevada, the third US state currently offering legalized online poker.
