Washington DC Sportsbetting Handle Surges

Washington DC's sportsbetting handle set a new record in October as punters bet $26.3 million on events.

The handle was up 42.2% from last year and beat the previous record set in September of $20.7 million.

The most successful book was Caesars, who runs a retail book at Capital One Arena and an online book. They brought in $926,151 in revenue on handle of $19.1 million. Gambet had $632,572 in revenue on handle of $5.5 million, while Bet MGM had a loss of $30,921 on $1.51 million in wagers. The Grand Central Restaurant Bar and Sportsbook launched in October and had revenue of $42,858 on wagers of $208,355.

The District of Columbia is one of the smallest betting venues in the United States in terms of acreage, but makes up for it with a population of 693,000. As such, comparisons between it and behemoth markets like New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be hard to size up to.
