Per NJ.gov, the NJG DGE has released June betting revenue numbers.
- Sports Betting Handle – $273.2M
- Revenue – $9.7M (nearly tripled from last June)
- Completed Events Hold% – 4.7% (5.7% YTD)
- Mobile/Brick Mix – 83/17
What Does This Mean for NJ Sports Betting Go Forward?
Mobile sports betting in NJ is king. Over 80% of bets have been placed via mobile devices, making the state of New Jersey much more money than other states who have not enabled mobile betting yet.
Mobile betting is KING. The numbers have proven this time and time again over the last year, and June is no different. 83% is massive, and even crazier is that number is unchanged month to month.
FanDuel Sportsbook generated $2.7M in online revenue, which is over a quarter of the entire states handler for online revenue.
Yes, numbers are down compared to May, but that is expected with the NBA Finals ending, baseball losing it’s “new season” luster, and remember that nearby Pennsylvania has legalized online and mobile betting as well, so some travelers may not have done so in June.
