Rhode Island falls just short of revenue record in September

| By Robert Fletcher
Sports betting revenue in Rhode Island reached $6.4m (£5.6m/€6.5m) in September, the second-highest monthly total on record.

Revenue was 60.0% higher than the $4.0m recorded in September 2021 and also 113.3% up from $3.0m in August this year.

The total was also just short of the monthly record of $6.7m posted in November 2021.

Mobile betting accounted for $3.6m of all revenue during the month, with Twin River’s retail sportsbook contributing $1.6m and the Tiverton Casino posting $1.1m from its land-based sports betting facility.

In terms of player spending, handle for the month was $41.7m, up 1.2% from $41.2m in the same month last year and 50.5% ahead of $27.7m in August this year. This was helped by the start of the new NFL season, which kicked off at the start of September.

Consumers wagered $26.8m online in September, while $14.8m was spent at the two retail sportsbooks. Twin River’s facility drew $9.9m in bets and Tiverton Casino’s $4.9m.

For the state’s financial year to date, revenue in the three months to the end of September was $12.2m, while handle amounted to $94.6m.
