"Our network has attracted the largest pool of players in the New Jersey online market, allowing us to offer our customers a wide selection of games and table stakes at all times. This gives our network a significant competitive advantage and positions us for further success. Online gaming is complementary to our land-based business, not competitive.
When matching our online and land-based databases, we found that 60 percent of online casino customers had not been to Borgata in over a year, and over 75 percent had made fewer than two trips to Borgata in the past year.
And, on a combined basis, online and land-based poker revenue at Borgata was up more than 40 percent from our land-based play in December 2012.
