Sports Betting Revenue By State

Regulated sports betting exists in 31 states (plus DC). This means sports betting revenue is everywhere. At LegalSportsBetting, revenue reports give us a look into legal sports betting finances. All numbers come from the gaming commissions’ revenue reports.

Nevada Sports Betting Revenue

Nevada Sports Betting Revenue - As one of the earliest states to have legal sports betting options, Nevada remains among the top revenue-generating states in the country. Although New Jersey has proven to be steep competition for the most profitable sports betting state, Nevada's nearly 200 licensed sportsbooks offer plenty of competition to keep it pulling in the revenue. In 2020, the state pulled $285 million in revenue; an impressive total considering the state lost several months of revenue to the pandemic. Following that, 2021 saw Nevada become the second state to wager over $1 billion in a single month, just after New Jersey had done the same. Fortunately for sportsbook operators, the state tax is only 6.75% on sports betting revenue. The state uses the tax money made from sports betting and other forms of gaming for its state general fund, with a focus on education and health services.

New Jersey Sports Betting Revenue

New Jersey Sports Betting Revenue - Since 2018, New Jersey has only handled less than $100 million once, in June 2020. On average, sportsbooks tend to handle around $500 million most months. In January 2021, New Jersey handled $958 million, making it less than $50 million short of a $1 billion handle for a single month, and more than any other state handled in the same month. Thanks to the 11 retail sportsbooks, and statewide online betting options from more than a dozen online sportsbooks, New Jersey operators have generated over $365 million in revenue in the first two quarters of 2021 alone and are trending for it to be their most profitable year yet by a large margin. New Jersey has a 9.75% on retail sports betting revenue, and 14.25% on online revenue. Since sports betting launched in New Jersey, nearly $150 million has been collected in taxes, which are then placed into the Casino Revenue Fund.

Mississippi Sports Betting Revenue

Mississippi Sports Betting Revenue - Until recently Mississippi was the top sports betting state in the southeast, only having to contend with Arkansas, a state with enough regulations to remove its potential competition. With 26 legal sports betting options across the state, there are plenty of opportunities for sportsbooks to generate substantial revenue. Since Mississippi sportsbooks launched in 2018, they've handled over $1 billion. While 2020 revenue numbers were unstable due to the pandemic and location-locked mobile options, the first quarter of 2021 has proven very profitable for sportsbooks who made nearly $20 million in revenue in three months. Taxes from sports betting are allocated by the Mississippi Department of Revenue, who has directed the funds to road repairs, sewer systems, and other infrastructure projects.

Pennsylvania Sports Betting Revenue

Pennsylvania Sports Betting Revenue - Pennsylvania has been in the top three revenue-generating states since launching in 2019, and its market seems to be growing. Pennsylvania sportsbooks broke $49 million in January 2021, making it the most profitable month so far. Although Pennsylvania manages to keep up with New Jersey and Nevada in revenue, it is despite the $10 million licensing fee, the 36% tax rate. The funds from said taxes are allocated to the state's general fund. Pennsylvania has seen $3,174,153,171 wagered on sports in the fiscal year 2020/2021, with 90% of its January wagers coming from online sportsbooks.

Rhode Island Sports Betting Revenue

Rhode Island Sports Betting Revenue - When sports betting began in Rhode Island, the only way to legally participate was in way of the two Twin River casinos. Since that time, however, Rhode Island launched its online wagering option, 'Sportsbook Rhode Island.' Upon launching the app in September 2019, $22 million was handled, more than $12 million more than the $10 million handled the month prior. In the first quarter of 2021, sportsbooks were able to generate over $8 million in revenue, $4 million of which was paid to the state government thanks to Rhode Island's 51% state tax. Tax dollars from sports betting are allocated into the general fund.

Arkansas Sports Betting Revenue - In December of 2020, Arkansas managed to break $1 million in monthly sports betting revenue for the first time since launching its operations in July 2019. Before this, however, sportsbook operators struggled to break even $400 thousand. Despite having legal sports betting before most other states, Arkansas doesn't generate nearly as much revenue as other states mostly due to an absence of options for citizens. Arkansas only offers sports betting at three retail casino locations, and there are currently no legal online or mobile sports wagering options. Most sports betting tax revenue goes to the general fund.

New York Sports Betting Revenue

New York Sports Betting Revenue - New York has handled over $1 million every month of the first two quarters of 2021, with the $356,986 made in January being its most profitable month to date. While the non-tribal sportsbooks do release weekly financial reports, they only include their total revenue, meaning information on their exact handle and hold percentage isn't provided. While revenue numbers in New York are currently lower than that of many other states, this will likely change when online betting is launched. Over $3 million has been made in taxes since sports betting launched, and it's earmarked to education programs, local municipal and county governments, and property tax relief.

Iowa Sports Betting Revenue

Iowa Sports Betting Revenue - Sports betting in Iowa launched in the third quarter of 2019, wh ere sportsbooks pulled in over $19 million in revenue. Throughout 2020 sportsbooks had an average daily handle of over $5 million. In the first quarter of 2021, Iowa sportsbook operators have managed to clear $32 million in revenue. That is more than a 500% increase fr om the less than $5 million in revenue they generated in the first quarter of the previous year. Iowa did however perform far better in the third and fourth quarters of 2020, managing to finish the year off with almost $40 million in revenue for the year. Like Nevada, the tax rate in Iowa stands at only 6.75%, making it one of the lowest legal sports betting tax rates in the country. Even with the low tax rate, Iowa still was able to collect $2,809,970, the majority of which was placed into the state general fund.

Oregon Sports Betting Revenue

Oregon Sports Betting Revenue - While initially the only way to place sports wagers was from the tribal casinos, it wasn't long before the state lottery delivered an online alternative via the scoreboard app. Since the tribes do not consistently report their earnings, the best trackable revenue data is from said app. 2020 saw Oregon generate nearly $20 million in sports betting revenue, with $16 million being made in just the first two quarters of 2021 placing them on track to beat the previous record. All lottery sports wagering revenue goes to the state and is currently earmarked towards the state's public pension liability.

Montana Sports Betting Revenue

Montana Sports Betting Revenue - There is some difficulty accurately tracking sports betting revenue for Montana, as the Montana Lottery doesn't explain how the profits are split between the lottery and Intralot, the sports betting supplier. It's estimated that the state made just under $19 million in revenue during 2020, after launching in March of the same year. 6% of the handle goes to the sales agent, with all lottery revenue going into the state's general fund.

The Real Size Of The US Sports Betting Market

As revenue reports are released over time, the ability to correctly analyze the entire size of the legal US sports betting market is made much easier. The first year of operations since the PASPA repeal has given us a more defined scope, as gambling industry analysts estimated that the annual betting handle is somewhere between $200 and $400 billion. Through the first year, every licensed sportsbook (which besides New Mexico are subject to monthly reports from their states) have accumulated for a total handle of over $9 billion.

This yearly handle will be sure to increase drastically as time goes on with more states legalizing sports betting and bettors’ comfort of using in-state licensed sportsbooks over the offshore betting sites. Additionally, the expansion into mobile betting will expedite the betting handle get closer to the aforementioned estimations. In New Jersey alone, sports betting occurs over mobile devices at a rate of 4 to 1 compared to that of retail betting parlors. Once the majority of states move toward this allowance, the size of the US sports betting market will increase in every category from handle and revenue to the states’ tax revenue.

Sports Betting Tax Revenue

States are quite different in the amount of handle they receive each month. The large market states like New Jersey and Nevada easily surpass the $300 million handle milestone but this does not equate to high tax revenue. Because each state regulates its industry independently, the tax rates range immensely. For example, Nevada receives only 6.75% of their books’ sports betting revenue; however, other states like Pennsylvania tax sports betting at 36%.

Take a record month for Nevada in March 2019. The books collected over $596 million for the betting handle, keeping $32.5 million as revenue. At 6.75%, the State of Nevada received just shy of $2.2 million in tax revenue for the month. Compare that to the first month of Pennsylvania sports betting that introduced mobile sports betting – June 2019. With a handle of $46 million and $3.1 of that kept by the books, it came nowhere near Nevada’s record month. However, Pennsylvania collected over $1 million in revenue due to the fact their tax rate is over 5 times that of Nevada’s.

With a large betting market, Nevada can get away with a rate of 6.75%. Smaller markets like Rhode Island and Delaware tax their industry at 51% and 50%, respectively, and are currently the highest tax rates of the legal sports betting states. Not every state is able to tax the industry this high; however, as both of these states use their lottery as the retailer, they remove the middle man. Currently, the tax rates of the legal sports betting states that have launched are:

  • Arkansas – 13% of first $150 million in receipts, then 20%
  • Colorado – 10% of revenue
  • Delaware – 50% of revenue
  • District of Columbia – 10% of revenue
  • Illinois – 15% of revenue
  • Indiana – 9.5% of revenue
  • Iowa – 6.75% of revenue
  • Michigan – 8.4% of revenue
  • Mississippi – 12% of revenue
  • Montana – 8.5%
  • Nevada – 6.75% of revenue
  • New Hampshire – 51% online; 50% retail
  • New Jersey – 8.5% of land-based revenue; 13% of online revenue
  • New Mexico – 26% of revenue
  • New York – 8.5% on land-based revenue; 12% on online revenue
  • North Carolina – Tribal Lands
  • Oregon – 2.3%
  • Pennsylvania – 36% of revenue
  • Rhode Island – 51% of revenue
  • Tennessee – 20% of revenue
  • West Virginia – 10% of revenue

Every state allocates the money they collect into different coffers. The ones who allow horse-racing tracks to offer sports betting use a small percentage to boost the purses for the races. However, on the grand scale, the majority of states use the funds to help fund the new industry with administrative costs, marketing efforts, and policing the sportsbooks. After this amount is taken out, infrastructure projects like rebuilding roads, tunnels, and bridges are amongst the highest priorities. With most of the state’s allocating the money to their state’s general fund, they also assist in providing essential programs for education and further developing the health services department. Some states (Mississippi, Pennsylvania, and Arkansas) even provide a small percentage to the city or county that hosts the sportsbooks.
