William Hill's D.C. Sports Wagers Hit $9.1 Million

Sportsbetting has been live in Washington D.C. for a month, and in that first month William Hill saw wagers hit $9.1 million from the group's book at Capital One Arena.

The book launched at the arena in August, which is home to the Washington Capitals, Washington Wizards, and Washington Mystics. There are currently only seven betting windows and 10 kiosks, but a permanent book is being constructed within the arena. During the month, there were 69,085 bets processed, with punters winning $7.7 million. This left the book with $1.4 million in revenues, but 10% tax was paid to the city.

The other book operating in D.C. is the DC Lottery's Gambet service, which is powered by Intralot. That book saw wagers in August of $2.1 million from 66,831 bets, with customers winning back $1.9 million.

Bets may raise up again in the near future as NFL football gets underway, with the Washington Football Team winning their Week 1 game and looking to come back to town to play at home on October 4th after playing away games at Arizona and Cleveland the next two months.
