Iowa Sportsbetting Revenues Jump in October

Sportsbetting within the state of Iowa grew by 14.9% in the month of October, raking in $5.7 million during the month.

The state's gaming regulator revealed that numbers were higher in October, which was the second full month that the activity has been offered. Customers placed $46.5 million in bets during the month, which was up 20.8% from September. Online betting generated $25.9 million of that total, up 18.8%, while digital revenues reached $2.7 million.
