Casino gaming's economic impact in other states rivals N.J.

* New Jersey still ranks among national leaders in terms of casino gaming’s economic impact, but other states, including nearby competitors, are gaining ground, according to a recent report.

Casino gaming in the Garden State supported 39,000 jobs, created $1.2 billion in taxes and accounted for a $6.5 billion in total economic impact last year, based on data collected by the American Gaming Association.

New Jersey ranked sixth, 10th and tied for fifth, respectively in those categories, compared to 42 other states with commercial or tribal gaming.
