The Indiana Gaming Commission has revealed that players in the state staked $91.7m on sports in October, a month-on-month increase of 160.4%.

The second full month of legal wagering included the first contributions from mobile wagering, which accounted for $48.0m (52.4%) of total handle despite just three sportsbooks launching offerings in the month.

Across all licensees and channels, the $91.7m handle resulted in adjusted gross revenue of $11.5m, up 34.8% month-on-month. Mobile revenue amounted to $4.2m in October, of which DraftKings generated $3.5m, followed by Rush Street’s BetRivers-branded offering with $496,744, then FanDuel with $197,786.
