- Bettors wagered $500,000 less in May than in April, the largest monthly drop in The Greenbrier’s nine-month history.
- Revenue remained rather high thanks to a 24.91% hold percentage from the sportsbook.
- Over $2.5 million has been wagered at The Greenbrier since the start of the year.
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.V. – With the NFL season over and the NBA Finals and Stanley Cup Playoffs nearing their conclusion, many sports bettors don’t know where to turn for their action.
This was the result at the FanDuel Sportsbook at The Greenbrier Historic Resort, according to the weekly numbers released by the West Virginia Lottery.
Bettors in May only totaled a handle of $159,000 at the private gambling club, their lowest monthly total on record. Generally, the gamblers at The Greenbrier lay anywhere from $500,000-700,000 a month but came nowhere near that mark during May.
However, thanks for the worst performance (in terms of hold percentage) by this set of West Virginia gamblers, FanDuel Sportsbook actually posted their fourth-highest monthly revenue.
Two months have exceeded the $100,000 mark (December 2018 and March 2019), but only April edges out May’s $39,539 in revenue by a few thousand.
With this, over $34,000 has been dedicated to serving the state’s needs since, solely from the legal sports betting tax contributions (since launch) from FanDuel Sportsbook.
As it stands, the total amount of action seen at this sportsbook has exceeded $5.3 million, where over $2.5 million of that has come from 2019 alone.
