February 05, 2014
Casino SCORES spoke with 3,000 people representing eight states from the
Mid-Atlantic and New England regions. To be included in the study, residents of
each state belong to at least one casino Players Club program and visit a casino
to gamble a minimum of three times a year.
When asked to indicate where they have gambled in 2013, New Jersey is the most
frequently mentioned destination (44%) followed by New York (36%) and
Not surprisingly, an overwhelming majority (92%) of New Jersey residents head to
Atlantic City for their gaming excitement. When not playing in AC, more than a
third (36%) cross state lines and can be found playing in Pennsylvania.
New Yorkers have many casinos from which to choose located throughout the state,
but when not gambling in state, a third (34%) travel to Atlantic City.
Among Connecticut and Pennsylvania residents, they too overwhelmingly play
within their respective states but also choose Atlantic City as their second
most visited destination to gamble.
