West Virginia online casino revenue flew up in April compared to the same month last year, with the WV lottery generating just under $20million.

West Virginia Online Casinos Enjoy Successful April

The Mountain State totalled $19.6million in online casino revenue during April, which was an impressive $6million rise from 2023 figures in the same month.

Despite the rise in year-on-year numbers for April, revenue for online casinos actually declined from March this year following one of the most successful period’s yet for West Virginia’s online sector.

March marked the first month that West Virginia’s online casino’s generated over $20m since it first launched the iGaming department and it was no surprise that April’s figures this year lagged behind the $20.68m made a month before.

The total decline for revenue from March to April in 2024 was 5.26% – but the West Virginia still enjoyed a successful month compared to other years.

In April 2023 Wet Virginia generated just $13.03m from online casinos, meaning that revenue saw over a 50% climb from the same month last year.

Steady Increase Of Online Casino Revenue Comes To A Halt

West Virginia’s online casino revenue has steadily risen each month so far in 2024, up until April where for the first time this year there was a slight decline.

  1. January: $16.36 million (3.24% monthly increase)
  2. February: $17.46 million (14.07% monthly rise)
  3. March: $20.68 (10.78% monthly increase)
  4. April: $19.60 million

Online casino revenue from the mountain state has only risen since it was first introduced in 2020 and after struggling to notch up $10m revenue when it first launched, now the state targets double that per month.

Despite the slight decline in online casino revenue through April, West Virginia will be hoping to get back on track in May during the beginning of Q2.
