This story was published more than 3 years ago.

Rhode Island saw sportsbetting revenues drop 58.5% from January to February 2021 as revenues for the books across the state totaled $1.5 million during the period.

Mobile betting revenues came in at $975,735, which was up more than 200% from last year, but land revenues dropped significantly to $580,089, down 67.7%. This is largely due to last year's numbers being some of the last months without Covid restrictions being implemented. Players bet $34.1 million during the month, with $17.8 million bet on mobile devices.

The Tiverton Casino had $332,397 million in revenues from $4.7 million in bets, while the Twin River Casino had smaller revenues but $11.6 million in wagers.

Rhode Island is a tiny state in terms of area but the population is the second most dense in the United States, as there are just over 1 million people residing there.
