Only one of the New York sports betting apps – Bally Bet New York – enjoyed an increase in either total handle or Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) for the week ending May 14.
The official weekly mobile sports betting figures were released late Friday morning by the New York State Gaming Commission (NYSGC).
Welcome to the start of a slowdown in sports wagering for the next few months.
The total mobile New York sports betting handle was more than $318.35 million, down $23.95 million from a week ago ($342.31M), and the second consecutive week the state has had a decrease.
After last week posting the second-highest weekly total mobile GGR number since launch (Jan. 8, 2022), the state posted about $37 million, a $10.9M drop from the week before ($47.94M).
Weekly tax dropped to approximately $18.9M, a $5.56M decrease from $24.45M the previous week.
The state since launch has handled more than $23.439 billion, generated more than $2 billion in GGR, and paid out more than $1 billion in state taxes to Albany.

Other than that, the rest of the state's providers all were saddled with drops in handle and GGR.
