New Jersey has set the record for the highest-ever monthly sports betting handle (turnover) in the US. According to the Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement data report, the state collected figures of around $748.6 million in sports betting wagers during September 2020.
That is a new monthly record for both the state and the US sports betting market as a whole, topping the last month’s record set also by New Jersey by 12.1%. More than 90% of the wagers were made via mobile devices, with much of the betting concerning the recent US Open in golf, as well as the French Open in tennis.
But other sports were also important in reaching that all-time record, with Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Hockey League (NHL), the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Football League (NFL) all playing an integral role.
Once again, the Meadowlands and its two partners, FanDuel Sportsbook and PointsBet, took the top hold (GGR) with $28.2 million. More than $25 million of that amount of GGR came from online. Resorts Digital, partnered with DraftKings Sportsbook and FoxBet, was second with a hold of $4.8 million. BetMGM partner Borgata did $4.1 million in third place while Monmouth Park and partners William Hill, theScore Bet and PlaySugarHouse of Rush Street finished in fourth place with $3.5 million.
