Eight of the nine mobile providers in the state had increases in total handle from the week before.

DraftKings NY led the way in that regard, with a significant $21 million increase.

FanDuel Sportsbook NY also had an increase of more than $6.8 million to more than $121.05 million.

Also note that FanDuel, the stateā€™s top operator, will surpass $10 billion in cumulative handle later this month.

On the other hand, seven of the nine providers had decreases in each of their total mobile GGR numbers, with Rush Street Interactive's NY BetRivers showing the only increase in both handle and GGR. Bally Bet also saw a week-over-week increase in revenue.
