The company released its Q1 FY24 report, outlining a decrease in total sports betting handle of 3% year-over-year

The leading betting and iGaming company with a strong presence across Australia and North America, PointsBet, released its Q1 FY24 activities report, sharing insights regarding its performance for the latest trading period.

The latest announcement comes after earlier this year, PointsBet agreed to sell its US assets to Fanatics.

Providing a breakdown of the total net win, PointsBet revealed that its sports betting operations in Australia saw an uptick of 11% to AU$52.8 million ($33.5 million) in net win. In contrast to the positive result, the betting handle in Q1 FY24 for Australia decreased by 7% to AU$566.9 million ($359.5 million).

On the other hand, the company’s betting operations in Canada saw AU$44.2 million ($28 million) in turnover for Q1 FY24, a result that represents an increase of 111%. Net win from sports betting for the region increased by a staggering 440% to AU$2.3 million ($1.5 million). Similarly, iGaming net win in Canada soared by 136% to AU$3 million ($1.9 million).
