Indiana sets records for handle and revenue in September
| By Daniel O'Boyle
Indiana set records in betting handle and revenue in September, as the return of the NFL helped sportsbooks in the Hoosier state to their most successful month to date.
Amounts wagered soared almost 500% year-on-year to $207.5m, with adjusted gross revenue growing 66.8% to $14.3m. This in turn led to a record monthly tax take, of $1.4m.
Players staked $173.1m online – another new record – and $34.4m in person.
Before adjustments, revenue came to $10.7m, of which $7.5m was made online and $3.2m in retail.
