New York reported a total sports betting handle of US$16.2 billion in 2022, setting a new record for a US state.


  • US$1.62 billion of bets were placed in December
  • Sportsbooks delivered US$1.4 billion in gross revenue
  • New York received US$693 million in tax revenue from sports gambling in 2022
  • In total the state generated US$1.36 billion in gross gaming revenue (GGR) throughout the year


Online betting was legalised in New York in January 2022, with the US$1.67 billion of bets placed during the first month setting a record for any US state.

When the market first opened, the New York State Gaming Commission (NYSGC) approved the ten-year licenses for nine sportsbooks: DraftKings, Caesars Sportsbook, Wynn Interactive, Genting, Rush Street Interactive, PointsBet, BetMGM, Bally’s and Fanduel.
