Pennsylvania Sportsbetting Numbers Rise Slightly

This week the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has announced that the Keystone State's sportsbetting revenue rose slightly in October to $14.9 million.

Revenue was up slightly from the $14.88 million generated in September, but players spent 24% more than the month prior, betting $241.2 million. Online wagers generated $10.3 million of the revenue share, which was up 11.2% from September.

Retail establishments generated $5.7 million in revenue for the period, up 23.9% from September.

Pennsylvania has legalized sportsbetting and online casino games, hoping to take advantage of its large population to generate tax revenues for different programs.

Not exactly the growth we've read about in the previous news about Indiana sportsbetiing numbers but decent enough raise in Pennsylvania as well it seems.
