The state of Nevada has posted its January sportsbetting numbers, noting that revenues surged 36% to $20.2 million.
For the month gamblers wagered $502.5 million on different events, up 1.1% from last year but lower than the $571.2 million bet the month prior. This is the first month that the Nevada Gaming Control Board has reported mobile sportsbetting numbers, and wagers on the devices amounted to $11.2 million.
Basketball generated $12.5 million in revenues, with American football creating $5.8 million, due largely to the sport's playoffs taking place in January.
A number of bets on the Super Bowl were also likely placed, although results on the game won't be available until next month, as the event was held on February 2nd.
