Rhode Island reveals year-on-year sports betting growth in December
| By Robert Fletcher
The Rhode Island Lottery reported a year-on-year increase in both sports betting revenue and handle for December, driven by mobile wagering.
Player spending in December amounted to $59.2m, which was 7.8% higher than $54.9m in the same month in 2021, and only slightly lower than $61.2m in November.
Of this total, $36.7m was spent betting online, while the remaining $16.5m was wagered by consumers at the state’s two retail sportsbooks, split $15.3m at Twin River and $7.2m the Tiverton Casino.
