Sports betting revenue was $9.1m, on a handle of $95.6m - in part due to the launch of mobile sports betting.

Borgata took the largest share of the total gaming market, recording revenue of $76m for the month (a 2.3% year-on-year increase), and the recently opened Hard Rock and Ocean Resort recorded $31.2m and $20.5m respectively.
