1. New Jersey
For the month of June, New Jersey reported internet-gambling win of $133.1 million, a substantial 24.4% increase over June 2021’s $107.1 million. Interestingly, the total was nearly 60% of the brick-and-mortar-casinos’ gross gaming revenue in June of $229.1 million.

New Jersey collected exactly $20 million in online-gambling taxes in June, a 19.5% jump from the prior-year’s take.
For the second month in a row, Michigan’s igaming revenue of $121.5 million sustained a loss, a decline of just under 5% from May’s $127.5 million and 8.2% less than April’s all-time record of $132.4 million. However, it was a substantial jump of 26.6% over the $89.2 million generated in June 2021.
BetMGM led the pack once again with $47.2 million, a commensurate 28.4% increase year over year, while FanDuel (Motor City) held onto the number-two spot with $18.5 million and DraftKings came in third with $17.9 million.
The 14 internet casinos paid a total of $22.5 million to the state, a full 41% more than June 2021’s $13.7 million. The three commercial casinos in Detroit paid $6 million to the city, while the tribal casinos paid in $2.5 million to their respective nations.

Connecticut’s two operators, DraftKings and FanDuel, in June earned $9.8 million and $6.5 million, respectively. Year-over-year numbers won’t show up until early next year, but compared to May 2022, the total was down a bit, 1.9% less than May’s $16.6 million.
DraftKings and FanDuel paid their 18% in taxes to the Constitution State in April, which came to $2.9 million.
5. West Virginia
The Mountain State’s igaming revenue enjoyed a major $4.4 million increase over June 2021’s $3.9 million in earnings. It’s not an apples-to-apples comparison, however, as West Virginia reports weekly and last month, the reporting period covered five weeks, from May 29 to June 30, stretched a bit to end the fiscal year.
Delaware’s June 2022 igaming net rose to $1.1 million, a 23.7% increase year over year. It was also the fourth month in a row of $1 million or more in online-casino revenue and the sixth of seven months in the year of seven figures (only February came in with six).
As always, online video lottery (slot) games accounted for the lion’s share of income at $924,272, up 23.8% from the prior year, while table games generated $151,624, a year-over-year increase of 30.5% from June 2021’s $105,473.
