Delaware sports betting revenue up again in October
Revenue of $1.5m (£1.1m/€1.3m) was the highest since January of this year, before the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic hit the sector, and was by far the best performance since retail sportsbooks resumed operations in July. It also represented a 66.8% month-over-month improvement.
Players staked $8.9m in the four weeks to October 25, down 7.3% from $9.6m in the same month in 2019, but an increase of 22.0% on September this year‘s $7.3m handle.
Consumers in Delaware won a total of $7.2m from sports wagering during the month, placing 171,936 bets in the process.
Delaware Park remained the market leader in October by reporting $829,438 in sports betting revenue, which was more than half of total monthly revenue in the state and almost double the $425,002 it generated in September.
