New York Sportsbooks Top $200 Million In May Monthly Revenue


The New York State Gaming Commission reported $203.8 million in sports betting revenue for May, making the Empire State the first to surpass $200 million in monthly operator winnings twice in the post-PASPA era.

The total fell short of January’s all-time national record of $211.7 million, but the two monthly figures now bracket the $209.1 million reported by Ohio from its January 2023 launch. New York also overtook neighboring New Jersey on a provisional basis for most revenue among all states in the post-PASPA era, moving within $10.5 million shy of $4 billion.

The statewide hold against $1.98 billion in handle was 10.3%, with wagering via sports betting apps at that win rate compared to the 7.7% attained by New York’s four commercial retail sportsbooks. Handle surged 45.1% compared to last year, while revenue increased 33.5% as the win rate was nine-tenths of a percentage point lower than the 11.2% posted in May 2023. Between the 51% tax on mobile operator revenue and 10% levy on their retail counterparts, the state reaped $103.7 million in receipts for May.

The $9.55 billion in year-to-date handle is up 19.6% compared to the first five months of 2023, while revenue his risen 23.7% to $883.4 million. The 9.3% hold from January through May is up three-tenths of a percentage point from last year, and the $448.8 million in taxes is $85.8 million more than the same span in 2023.

DraftKings Enjoys its Best Month in New York

DraftKings did not pull off the double of leading New York’s nine mobile sportsbooks in handle and revenue, taking the top spot in the former, but it posted all-time monthly highs in both. The $812.3 million handle was an all-time monthly high, up 72.4% from last year, while the 10.4% hold resulted in $84.2 million in winnings — an increase of 76.4%. DraftKings set the state weekly record for revenue with $36.5 million for the week ending May 12.

The 41.2% market share of handle was its highest since attaining 41.9% last June and was also eight percentage points higher than March. DraftKings’ 9.3% win rate thus far in 2024 has resulted in $320.5 million in revenue and is nearly nine-tenths of a percentage point better than its all-time 8.4% hold.
