ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Atlantic City's casinos saw gambling revenue increase 4.3 percent in May compared to a year ago, to more than $229 million.

And if the now-shuttered Trump Taj Mahal were removed from the equation, the seven surviving casinos would have posted a 12-percent increase last month.

Figures released Wednesday by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement also show the continued steady rise of internet gambling revenue in the largest online market in the country. Online gambling revenue was up more than 27 percent in May.

Only Bally's saw a revenue decrease in May, and it was a minuscule decline.

Through the first five months of this 2017, Atlantic City's casinos have won $1.07 billion. That's an increase of 3.9 percent compared to the same period last year.
