NY sportsbook revenue more than doubles again in September

14 October 2019

New York’s four licensed sports betting operators took in a combined $2.3m in sports betting revenue, up 175.3% month-on-month, as two casinos published their first full-month revenues for the vertical.

Since its launch in July, regulated sports betting in New York has now generated $3.5m in revenue, as the revenue generated from every casino increased from August’s figures.

Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady’s Rush Street Interactive-powered sportsbook took in the most money, as it had done in each of the two previous months, with $903,892, up 102.2% from August.

However, second-placed del Lago Resort and Casino in Waterloo significantly closed the gap in its first full month of sports betting operations, bringing in $836,929. That figure marked a 375.5% increase upon August’s revenue, which was based on only nine days of wagering after the DraftKings-branded sportsbook at del Lago opened on 23 August.
