Written By: Maya Michaels | August 24, 2021 | Posted In Poker News

Online poker revenue in July was up in almost all legalized US states. Last month WSOP.com bracelet events and promotions by operators contributed to improving the numbers.

Some states, including New Jersey, recorded some of their biggest online gaming months to date. With limited brick and mortar poker rooms, players are giving the chance to the online poker market.

Online poker is currently legal and operating in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Delaware and Michigan.

New Jersey saw a strong rebound in July thanks to WSOP.com. Operators brought in almost $3.1 million for the month. This was up almost $1 million month over month. In New Jersey, there are currently three online poker operators: 888poker, partypoker US Network (including Borgata Poker and BetMGM skins), and PokerStars.

WSOP.com stayed on the top spot for July. The WSOP Online summer online bracelet series helped the site account for $1.7 million in revenue, according to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE). That almost doubled the $891,872 total the site reported in June.

WSOP.com remains the only operator offering shared liquidity with Nevada and 888poker in Delaware.

Pennsylvania also saw a small increase in poker numbers for July. PA online poker sites reported $2.5 million in revenue, slightly up from $2.4 million in June.

PokerStars brought in $1.9 million for June and remains the top dog in the state. The sites continue to battle for ground in the state.

BetMGM and Borgata Poker run monthly Online Series and are attracting more entries each month. Both are part of partypoker US Network. 

Currently, there are three online poker options: PokerStars, partypoker US Network via the Borgata Poker and BetMGM skins and WSOP.com.

As for Michigan, the state reported $92.3 million in gaming revenue for the month of July. This was up from the $89.2 million reported in June. Michigan lumps online poker and online gaming all together in monthly reports. There are two online poker site operators in Michigan – PokerStars and BetMGM (part of the partypoker US Network).

BetMGM saw a small increase month over month and continues to lead the state in online gaming gross revenue with $33.8 million. FanDuel saw a small dip and came in second with $14.3 million.

In Delaware, online poker saw about a 3% increase according to June’s report. The First State showed total revenue of $33,308 for July. 888poker is the only poker operator in the state. The platform facilitates three different skins in partnership with the state’s racetrack casinos including Delaware Park, Dover Downs, Harrington Casino, and Raceway.

All three operators in the state saw month-over-month growth. The gold medal each month in 2021 has gone to Delaware Park for  poker revenue. In July, the property brought in $17,730.
