One billion dollars. 

That's how much Governor Chris Christie predicted New Jersey would make with online gambling this fiscal year. But since its launch in November, the industry has taken in just $8.4 million.

"That [$1 billion] prediction doesn't coincide with anything else that's out there right now," Bogdan said.
