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.
