The 11 casinos in Atlantic City, NJ reported a 5.5% combined revenue decrease in May.

Atlantic City casinos revenue declineThe neighboring states casino gambling expansion may prove bad for the casinos in Atlantic City. On average, 5.5% was the decline in revenues for the month of May, compared to the same month last year, for the eleven casinos operating in the city. This is the fourth month out of five this year that the take was down from the previous year.

Four casinos have cut back on their comps as a way to make up for declining revenue. The  seven others, however, are handing them out faster, hoping to hold on to customers who now have other, closer places they can gamble, Philadelphia being one of the new casino markets attracting customers from the N.J. casinos.

If this trend of declining casino revenues continue for the Atlantic City gambling market, 2007 may be the first year the casinos see less revenue than the previous, since legalizing gambling 29 years ago.
