New Hampshire sets record sports betting handle in December
| By Robert Fletcher
The New Hampshire Lottery has reported a new record sports betting handle for December 2020, though the US state also experienced a slight month-on-month fall in revenue.
Gross gaming revenue (GGR) for the month amounted to $4.5m (£3.3m/€3.7m), down 6.3% from the record $4.8m that was set in November 2020.
This was despite players spending a record $51.6m on sports betting during the month, up 11.0% from $46.5m in November.
Mobile sports wagering accounted for $3.7m of overall GGR in December, which was 2.6% lower than in November, though players spending on mobile was up 12.3% from $38.9m to $43.7m.
In terms of retail, GGR for DraftKings’ land-based activity stood at $830,584, down 14.0% from November, but as was the case with mobile, players wagering increased 5.3% month-on-month to $8.0m.
