Pennsylvania’s online and retail sportsbooks shattered the state’s revenue record with nearly $85m from more than $760m in wagering in November, continuing an already substantial run of records.
Online casinos remained near all-time highs, too, and the Pennsylvania market should remain hot as the weather grows colder, according to PlayPennsylvania, which tracks regulated online gaming and sports betting in the state.
“Football has spurred the current spike, but the wave that sportsbooks are riding is about more than one game or one sport,” said Katie Kohler, analyst for PlayPennsylvania.com.
“November had one less weekend of football than in October, but the NBA and college basketball have proven to be formidable bet generators, too.
“Online sportsbooks continue to expand their reach, and bettors are becoming increasingly comfortable with diverse forms of betting. It’s hard to imagine sportsbooks being in a better position heading into the typically busy winter months.”
