The monthly handle was 15.2% behind the $73.6m wagered in November 2022. However, it was 26.1% ahead of $49.5m in Mississippi in October this year and the highest total since $74.4m was bet in December 2022.

Turning to revenue, this reached $3.1m in Mississippi in November. This was 33.3% behind last year’s $5.1m total and also 53.4% less than $7.3m in October.
