| By Robert Fletcher
The Indiana Gaming Commission set a new sports betting handle record in December, while revenue from wagering more than doubled year-on-year.

Adjusted gross revenue for the month amounted to $24.3m, up 102.5% from $12.0m in December 2019, but down from a record $25.3m in November 2020.

Players wagered a total of $313.1m, which was 93.5% higher than in the same month in 2019, as well as a 24.5% increase on the previous monthly record of $251.4m set in November of last year.

The Commission also noted that the state was able to take $2.3m in tax from sports betting activities in December, more than double the $1.1m collected in December 2019.

Football was by far the most popular sport to wager on among consumers in the state, with a total of $101.8m during the month. Basketball ranked second with $89.7m in wagers, ahead of just $19,923 for baseball.
