This week the Nevada Gaming Control Board revealed that sportsbetting numbers were up in September, bringing in $991.2 million in revenues during the period.

The results are due in large part to the return of the NFL season, which draws a ton of betting interest in the United States. Parlay revenues were up 17.2% to $6.8 million. Baseball bets grew 14.7% to $4.25 million, with other sports bringing in about $1.5 million.
