RI retail betting continues to outstrip mobile in September
Sports betting revenue in September reached $2.4m, down 4.0% from $2.5m in the same month last year, but 71.4% higher than the amount posted in August this year.
Players wagered $31.3m on sports during September, which was 41.0% more than the same month last year and also 35.5% higher than the amount spent this August.
There was a particularly packed sporting schedule during the month, with Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association both playing – following their novel coronavirus (Covid-19) suspensions as well as the National Football League’s traditional kick-off.
Retail was again the main source of income for operators, despite the Twin River casinos in Lincoln and Tiverton being subject to capacity limits as a result of the pandemic.
