US Sports Betting Revenue Tracker: 2018–2024 State Revenue and Handle

GamingToday.com is an independent sports news and information service. GamingToday.com has partnerships with some of the top legal and licensed sportsbook companies in the US. Gaming Today may receive referral compensation from the sportsbook company when you claim a bonus offer or promotion through a link on this site. Although the relationships we have with sportsbook companies may influence the order in which we place companies on the site, all reviews, recommendations, and opinions are wholly our own. They are the recommendations from our authors and contributors who are avid sports fans themselves.

Gaming Today is licensed and regulated to operate in AZ, CO, CT, DC, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MS, NJ, NV, NY, OH, ON, PA, TN, VA, VT, WV, and WY.

The Gaming Today sports betting revenue tracker is your bookmarkable resource for the money that states and sportsbooks are reaping from the advent of legal mobile and retail sports betting in the United States.

Our tracker is updated monthly with the latest figures and will include all-time data for the states with legal sports betting.

Milestones and records — established since the fall of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act in 2018 made wagering on games a national possibility — are also recorded here.

US Sports Betting Revenue Totals For 2024:


$499,020,051 (through January)

This figure includes 27 of the 39 U.S. jurisdictions where sports betting is legal and underway.

It does not include Puerto Rico. It also excludes Florida, New Mexico, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Washington, Nebraska and North Dakota where sports betting is under the auspices of tribal gaming. Native gambling companies are not required to disclose their gambling figures publically. These figures so far exclude Kentucky, whose gambling commission doesn’t release data.

In most markets, more than 90% of sports betting is done online. For markets where mobile wagering is heavily favored, like New York and New Jersey, more than 90% of betting is done online.

Virginia is one of the states that doesn’t publish separate mobile and retail sports betting figures. Virginia opened its first retail sportsbook in July 2022, but its retail casino reports don’t list sportsbook handle separately.

US Sports Betting Revenue: Top States


Top 2023 Sports Betting Revenue State: New York – $1,697,297,602


Unsurprisingly, New York led the way in sports betting revenue in 2023. New York sportsbooks saw more than $1 billion in revenue. New Jersey sportsbook revenue was second-best at just more than $1 billion. Illinois sports betting revenue was next at $882 million.

This is the taxable revenue in each state’s market. So, this is what’s left over after sportsbooks pay winnings and deduct promotional credits. This is unlikely to be the revenue figure sports betting proponents advertise when they’re pushing for sports betting legalization. Handle and tax revenue are both more attractive figures for the skim-reading public.

The primacy of Nevada sportsbooks in national market share has lessened every year as legal sports betting spreads to more states. It’s somewhat of an unfair comparison anyway but listed here for informational purposes.

It is possible that this Nevada coalition will no longer top this list by 2024.

US Sports Betting Revenue FAQ

Twenty-five US jurisdictions have legalized and launched mobile/online sports betting apps.

They include:

North Carolina, Kentucky, and Vermont are in the process of adding mobile sports wagering.

New York, because of its massive population and number of rabidly-followed professional sports teams, has become the national leader in sports betting revenue and handle. In 2022, New York led all states with $1.4 billion in revenue. It’s the only state in the billion-dollar club.

New Jersey — early after the nullification of PASPA — became the model for American sports betting markets and still remains a national leader. Still, it paled in comparison to its neighbor in 2022, pulling in $762 million in revenue.

As heavily populated states, Michigan, Ohio, and Illinois also logically pace the US in sports betting handle and revenue.

The sports betting industry is massive. A new report seemingly comes out every week underscoring this fact. The scale of numbers thrown around and the varying length of time discussed in these projections can make for tough comparisons.

But it’s huge.

According to Vantage Market Research, “the global Sports Betting Market was valued at $74.2 Billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $129.3 Billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 9.7% during the forecast period of 2022-2028.”

The American sports betting industry is considered a $13 billion annual industry now, according to the American Gaming Association because that’s the amount of revenue for sportsbooks since 2018.

Basketball is the most bet on sport in the US. Although the NFL is the most lucrative betting market in the US, and in keeping with its popularity among fans, basketball, combining both the NBA and NCAA is the most bet-upon at around 35% of the market share.

Some of this is likely attributable to the fact that there are many more games in basketball than football, contributing to a larger handle, or amount wagered on the sport.

The Super Bowl remains the king of kings as far as a single event, but the NCAA Tournament is a competitive second.

This varies by state and often by whether a mobile/online or retail bet is being taxed. Mobile bets are generally taxed at a much higher rate.

New York has the highest tax rate for sportsbooks, which has been a source of consternation for the national brands operating there from the beginning. Still, these companies can’t afford not to compete in the most lucrative sports betting market in the United States.

New York taxes sportsbook operators at 51% on mobile bets and 10% on those made in retail sportsbooks.

Pennsylvania taxes at 34% and 2%, by comparison.

Meanwhile, Virginia taxes all bets the same: 15%.

Since 2018, sportsbooks have paid nearly $3 billion in state and local taxes in all the states where they operate legally.

Yes, sports betting is a billion-dollar industry. In 2022, $93,755,018,853 was wagered with legal American sportsbooks.

That produced $7,588,814,061 in revenue in the 27 states that report gambling figures to the public. This generated $1,513,292,791 in state and local taxes.

By any measure, US sports betting is a billion-dollar industry.

Yes, states make substantial tax revenue from online gambling. Since 2018, states have taken in more than $2.5 billion in state and local taxes from mobile/online sports betting.

In many states, wagering on phones and computers constitutes in excess of 90% of sports betting activity.

Because offshore sports betting websites operate outside of the reach of American laws, consumer protection is a major concern for those who take the risk.

  • These offshore books don’t have to answer your complaints.
  • They don’t have to pay out your winnings.
  • There are no assurances they will keep your personal information safe.
  • There’s no assurance these companies won’t shutter overnight and keep more money.
  • They could be involved in all manner of illegal financial activities that you probably don’t want to be associated with.

It’s best to wait for your state to legalize sports betting or visit a neighboring one that has already launched. The amount of states where sports betting isn’t legal dwindles each year. Still, the reach of illegal offshore sites is pervasive.

Very few get rich betting on sports, but you always tend to hear about the success stories as opposed to the failures.

Always bet within your means. This should be a fun activity and not a job or compulsion. And it’s only for adults. Bet within your means. And if you ever feel that things are getting beyond your control, please seek help.
