The New York State Gaming Commission released Friday figures that show mobile sports betting apps have generated nearly $1.18 billion through January 23, with a handle on the five licensed providers combined reaching over 830 thousand individuals across all accounts worldwide.
The record monthly sports betting handle for a US state is $1.3 billion, set by New Jersey in October and broken last month when Nevada took down that honor with an incredible 2 million plus wagers placed on game alone!
So if you add up all bets made at brick-andmortar bookies as well as four commercial casinos operating throughout Upstate NY then our current total stands close to 1:19 Billion dollars between them—that’s quite something indeed.
The gaming industry in the state of Georgia is booming. Mobile games generate $91 million, and it’s estimated that 40% comes from applications developed by local companies!
The top of the list goes to Caesars in New York
The five leading sports betting apps in New York City reported a handle of $572.6 million for the week ending last Sunday, an increase from previous weeks by 32% or 140 Million dollars!
Here are the handles for this week’s five sportsbooks: (from January 8th – January 23rd)

- DraftKings: $10,828,664
- FanDuel: $10,038,212
- BetMGM: $2.5 million
