New York mobile sports revenue dropped by 6.8 percent compared to March 2023.

Just 12 months ago, the Empire State generated $162.8Million in sports betting revenue so the decline will come as a slight surprise.

Even more so considering sports betting handles in the Big Apple improved both month-on-month and year-on-year. Flutter Entertainment’s FanDuel once again led the way in March 2024.

They posted a revenue of $73.1m from the handle of $781.2m. DraftKings were a way off their competitors, with revenue of $48.8m from the handle of $612.2m.

Throughout the whole of 2023, a reported $1.75 bn was posted in online sports betting revenue. New Jersey posted an impressive $1 bn over last year as well.

With global sporting events such as the 2024 European Championship and Olympic Games still to come this summer, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see the $2 bn barrier broken.
