New York’s Record-Breaking Milestone

The New York State Gaming Commission recently reported that New York’s sportsbooks have exceeded $4 billion in revenue. This landmark achievement is a testament to the state’s thriving sports betting industry.

For June alone, operator winnings reached $134.2 million, with the state collecting $68.3 million in taxes from a 9.1% hold. June’s revenue increased by 29.1% year-over-year, while the handle rose by 26.2%, highlighting the growing popularity of betting online in New York.


NY sports betting scene: Strong Operator Performance

Leading the market, FanDuel generated $67.1 million in revenue from $571.2 million in handling. This marked the first time since January that FanDuel surpassed 50% of mobile winnings. Following closely, DraftKings earned $40.9 million in revenue from $521.6 million in bets. Caesars came in third, earning $8.6 million from $127.7 million in wagers.

Other notable performers include BetMGM and Fanatics Sportsbook. BetMGM narrowly outpaced Fanatics Sportsbook for the fourth spot, earning $6.8 million. Fanatics achieved a 9.9% win rate, earning $6.7 million from $67.3 million in wagers. BetRivers accepted $68.8 million in bets but had the lowest hold at 3.7%, earning just over $2.5 million.

High Tax Revenues and Market Stability

New York also surpassed $1 billion in sports betting revenue for the calendar year, generating $517.1 million in taxes from the 51% mobile operator tax rate. When former Governor Andrew Cuomo pushed for legalizing mobile sports betting, he projected $500 million in tax revenue for a fiscal year.

Current Governor Kathy Hochul’s projections are even more ambitious, with expectations of $860 million in receipts from online gambling for Fiscal Year 2025. In just the first three months, the state has collected $265.7 million, underscoring the financial benefits of the NY sports betting scene.

New York’s sports betting scene is crushing it this year! They already raked in over $10 billion in bets in the first half of 2024, and with football season coming up, things are expected to get even crazier!
