New York online sports wagering operators since the launch of mobile betting (Jan. 8) have combined for a handle of just shy of $6 billion and a GGR of more than $412.34 million.
New York, which shares the nation’s highest tax rate with New Hampshire at 51%, has collected more than $210.29 million in taxes.
