The state of New Jersey reported that in its first full month of offering sportsbooks that venues handled $40.6 million in wagers across five different venues.
The five different locations handling wagers generating revenues of $3.8 million, up from $3.6 million generated in June, which is surprising given that the activity was only offered for two weeks in June. It's possible that the lack in revenues are because of future bets being placed, including the upcoming NFL and NCAA college football seasons.
The most profitable book was the FanDuel location at the Meadowlands Racetrack, which hauled in $1.36 million, despite only being open for half of the month. William Hill's books at the Monmouth Park and the Borgata Casino brought in $856,000 and $563,000 respectively.
Speaking about their first month a FanDuel spokesperson said, "We are very pleased with the first month of the FanDuel Sportsbook in New Jersey. We are thrilled that customers are enjoying their experience at the FanDuel Sportsbook at the New Meadowlands Racetrack, and are excited to commence the football season and the opening of our permanent facility."
