US Sports Betting Revenue And Handle

US sports betting once only happened in Nevada. Now, as legal sports betting has expanded to more states starting in 2018, the amount of sports betting revenue generated in the country has increased dramatically.

Here’s a snapshot of the economics of legal sports betting in the United States.

US sports betting revenue: All states

Legal betting in the US started expanding after the 2018 Supreme Court decision striking down the federal ban outside Nevada.

Here’s a look at total handle, revenue, hold and tax revenue collected in each of the states that now have legal sports wagering:

  • Handle: Amount wagered over the time period.
  • Revenue: Amount of money kept by sportsbooks out of the amount wagered.
  • Hold %: How much revenue sportsbooks keep as a function of handle.
  • Taxes/state revenue: Taxes collected by state and local jurisdictions; or state share of proceeds in revenue-sharing markets.

The numbers reflect all reported numbers starting in June 2018 to date.

New Jersey sports betting

NJ sports betting is the biggest outside Nevada. That performance is on the merits of its strong online betting presence: about 80% of all handle is generated through sportsbook apps and websites.

Pennsylvania sports betting

PA sports betting is poised to become one of the biggest markets in the near future. So far, the state has mostly relied on retail sportsbooks, but sportsbook apps started going live in May 2019, and should dramatically increase both handle and revenue.

The only hiccup is the high cost of doing business in the state: an effective tax rate of 36% and a $10 million licensing fee.

Delaware sports betting

Delaware sports betting was the first to go live outside Nevada in June 2018. Wagering only takes place at three state casinos, and parlay cards for football betting available at lottery retailers. There is no mobile betting although state law allows for it.

Delaware’s monthly reporting schedule ends on the last Sunday of every month. For exact month-end dates, see the breakdown at the Delaware Lottery website.

There was no sports betting data reported for April through June 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Nevada sports betting

Nevada has had legal wagering for decades. Billions of dollars are wagered annually, generating hundreds of millions in revenue.

Here’s a look at Nevada sports betting handle and revenue since June 2018, the month that the first sportsbooks opened in other states.

Nevada has one of the lowest tax rates in the country at 6.75%.

Note: Results for April and May 2020 are combined. The state did not release monthly sports betting results while sportsbooks and casinos were shut down.

Rhode Island sports betting

RI sports betting started in late 2018, after the state legalized it earlier in the year. The state actually runs sports betting through a pair of casinos, and with the help of sportsbook company Caesars Sportsbook. RI gets a share of revenue, rather than taxing it.

Rhode Island did not launch with online betting, but a 2019 law authorized it.

West Virginia sports betting

WV sports betting went live in 2018, thanks to a law passed even before the federal ban was struck down.

The state has legalized online betting, too, but there were problems at first. Delaware North, the only live operator, had to shut down. So too did two retail sportsbooks, leaving just three places to bet on sports in the state.

Sportsbook apps returned in August 2020.

West Virginia reports results on a weekly basis, so results for some months may include days from other months. Visit the West Virginia Lottery’s website for a breakdown of specific reporting dates.

New York sports betting

New York sports betting began in July 2019 at the upstate casinos. All four commercial properties have sportsbooks open for betting — as do a few tribal casinos — but the existing law does not make provision for statewide online/mobile wagering. As such, expectations for NY sports betting revenue should be mitigated.

New York casinos were closed in March until September 9 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
