In April, Tennessee sports betting saw a year-on-year rise that was almost identical to the 20.6% recorded in March. However, wagers collected in April were well down on the $473.6m collected in March, which enjoys a busy sports schedule.

With some $3.3m of income attributed as adjustments, overall gross handle was recorded as $380.9m. This compared to $472.0m in March, with no comparable figure released in April 2023.

In terms of privilege tax from sports betting, the state collected a total of $7.0m. This was up 9.4% compared to last year.

The Tennessee Sports Wagering Council does not publish data regarding monthly revenue, nor any information on individual operator performances.
