Super Bowl Gives Weekly Numbers a Boost in New York Sports Betting

Super Bowl Gives Weekly Numbers a Boost in New York Sports Betting
By Lou Monaco

The sixth week of official weekly figures on Betting Apps NY was released Friday and it mixes in the first big betting event of the year — last week’s Super Bowl between the Cincinnati Bengals and newly-crowned champion Los Angeles Rams.

The report was released by the New York State Gaming Commission (NYSGC).

Overall, mobile sports wagering handle posted at $472.14 million, a $112.29 million jump from the week before, due in large part to last Sunday’s closely matched Super Bowl LVI, which the Rams won, 23-20. It was also the second highest total since $572.55 million ending the week of Jan. 23.

Overall, mobile Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) came in at $15.39 million, down from last week’s total of $25.52 million.

Its GGR was the highest over the last six weeks of reporting at $11.32 million.

The record New York number


On Thursday, the NYSGC released its figure for the month of January. That month covers mobile wagering from Jan. 8, the day the state launched with four sports books, until Jan. 31. The retail numbers, which were a much, much lower part of the total, covered the whole month.

The official betting handle of $1,686,263,898 easily became a national record, topping the $1.35 billion reported by New Jersey on Wednesday. That latest New Jersey number broke the Garden State's previous state and national record of $1.303 billion, set in October 2021.

The mobile figure was $1,686 billion. Retail posted at $16.54 million.
