Data released today by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement is expected to show that the Atlantic City’s casino industry has hit a seventh straight year of gambling revenue decline, off from a 2006 peak of $5.2 billion.

Meanwhile, the state will also release the first data on New Jersey’s burgeoning Internet gambling industry, which officials hope will offset the losses of the brick-and-mortar market.

Online gambling launched Nov. 26. The data released today will include online gambling revenue through the end of December.
