In fact, it was the state’s second-largest GGR since launch.

Tax collected by Albany: $28,880,151, a huge $24.64 million increase from more than $4.23 million a week ago. Since the launch of NY sports betting apps (Jan. 8, 2022), the state has generated nearly $28 billion in handle, more than $2.4 billion in GGR and $1.245 billion in taxes.
