Sportsbetting in New Jersey continues to blossom, as punters wagered just under $184 million on sports in the month of September.
The numbers come as the NFL football season came into full swing, and nearly doubled the $95.4 million brought in the month prior. Online sportsbetting saw $105 million wagered, with the state's land-based casinos and racetracks seeing $79 million wagered. The revenues brought in by the betting companies was $24 million, which was up from $9.2 million the month prior.
The highest grossing sportsbetting operation for the month was Resorts Digital and DraftKings, which had numbers reaching $8.5 million. The Meadowlands Racetrack and FanDuel were second with $7.2 million in revenues.
The numbers come as the new Hard Rock on the Atlantic City Boardwalk announced that it was working with Gaming Innovation Group to develop a new sportsbook. New Jersey is without a doubt the most profitable state to legalize sportsbetting thus far, proving that a regulated market can offer safeguards as well as bring in revenues for businesses.
