With a full week of baseball back in play, New York sports betting bounced back yet again as official mobile wagering figures for the week ending July 23 were released by the New York State Gaming Commission (NYSGC) Thursday afternoon.
The Empire State posted more than $217.84 million in total mobile handle, a significant $55.88 million increase from the week before ($161.95 million). Total Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) came in at $25.34 million, up a solid $7.94 million from the last report ($17.38 million).
Tax collected by Albany: $12.92 million.
Since the launch of New York betting apps, the state has generated just shy of $26 billion in mobile handle, more than $2.244 billion in mobile GGR and $1.144 billion in taxes.
Caesars Joins FanDuel and DraftKings at $4 Billion Handle
Caesars Sportsbook NY achieved another milestone, going over the $4 billion mark in cumulative handle since launch ($4,005,648,348). It is one of only three providers to do so, joining FanDuel ($10.466 billion) and DraftKings ($7.913 billion).
Eight of the nine providers (BallyBet is still transitioning to a new platform) had increases in their handle and GGR.
On the weekly numbers, FanDuel led the week with more than $92.6 million in handle, a solid $28.6 million jump from a week ago. This was a mild relief for the state's leading provider after its lowest handle was recorded the previous week ($64 million) since $63.23 million was recorded during the state’s opening weekend (two days, four providers) in Jan. 2022.
DraftKings also increased to $71.87 million, up a solid $14.9 million from last week ($56.98 million).
Here are the top five weekly handles:
- FanDuel NY: $92.6M
- DraftKings: $71.87M
- Caesars: $25.37M
- BetMGM: $13.54M
- BetRivers: $8.47M
