New York’s Betting Market Thrives with Robust Figures for Week Ending January 21

The figures for the week ending January 21 revealed a robust $47.5 million in adjusted gross revenue, marking yet another milestone for the Empire State’s flourishing betting market.

As a result, New York joined New Jersey as one of the only states to achieve $3 billion in total revenue, with December alone bringing in a record-breaking $189.3 million

Since its launch in January 2022, New York’s betting apps reached this significant milestone in just 107 weeks.

Despite last week’s winnings ranking seventh overall, they fell short by nearly $20 million compared to the record-breaking $67.3 million claimed by operators for the week ending January 14

However, the handle for the week ending January 21 reached $490.7 million, marking the sixth-highest figure and reflecting a 10.1% increase from the previous week, driven largely by the NFL divisional round playoffs.

All nine operators reported positive adjusted gross revenue (AGR), which translates to an estimated $24.2 million in taxes based on New York’s 51% tax rate on mobile revenue.
