It’s the third straight week of increased online sports betting tax revenues in the Empire State.
New York Keeps Moving into November
The New York State Gaming Commission reported $454,072,838 in sports betting handle for the week ending Nov. 12. It’s the third straight week of decreasing online sports betting handle for the state, but also the third straight week increased gross gaming revenues. The commission reported $43.93 million in gross gaming revenue, an increase of $6 million from the previous week.
FanDuel again sat atop all operators for the week, totaling $189.9 million in online sports betting handle and just a little more than $21 million in gross gaming revenue.
The New York State Gaming Commission releases handle and revenue reports for its nine NY sports betting apps, Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel, BetMGM, WynnBET, PointsBet, Bally Bet, Resorts World Bet, and BetRivers, at the conclusion of each week.
