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 Pennsylvania (35%).

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.
