| By Robert Fletcher
Sports betting revenue in New Hampshire fell to a four-month low in December, despite the state’s handle reaching its second-highest monthly total on record.
Player spending in the state reached $86.4m (£63.5m/€76.2m) in December, up 67.4% from $51.6m in the same month of 2020. This was also 2.9% higher than November 2021, but 12.0% off the $98.2m record set in October last year.
DraftKings’ mobile sportsbook accounted for the majority of wagers placed in December, with consumers spending a total of $65.6m online. A further $20.9m was wagered at the operator’s three retail betting facilities in New Hampshire.
Gross gaming revenue, after winnings were paid out to players, reached $2.6m, which was 42.2% lower than $4.5m in December of 2020 and 58.1% down from the record $6.2m in November 2021.
