Delaware experienced a decline from February. Revenue and taxes did increase. That’s good for a state not offering an online product. Casino’s driven by foot traffic will continue to be impacted by Covid.

Indiana used basketball to bounce back from a weak February reporting $317m in bets placed. The bulk of that number comes from $279m in online wagers, compared to $37.5m from retail locations.

The partnership between Ameristar East Chicago and DraftKings/theScore accounted for the majority of the handle at $120,414,215. $114,224,535 was from online betting while $6,189,680 was from walk-up sportsbooks.

Blue Chip Casino/FanDuel came in second with $92,409,340 in handle. $91,260,954 came online and $1,148,386 was through the casino.

Third, Belterra/BetMGM took $40,237,180 in bets, $39,432,282 online and $804,898 at the retail location.

Iowa surpassed January and February performance, reporting handle at $161.4m. March was a record-breaking month for the state, with highs in both revenue at $13.5m and taxes at $908,011.

11 Online Sportsbook operators operate in the state and aggressively marketed the tournament knowing that college basketball is popular in Iowa. $139.4 million in online bets were placed. $22 million was bet at retail locations.

Washington DC’s GambetDC did not experience growth growth in March. Handle came in at $3.8 million, $200k shy of February, yet revenue did increase by $115kODDS.com attributes the lack of growth to less marketing, which is typical of sportsbooks under their state’s lottery.  

William Hill, a global brand and the only other licensed bookmaker in DC, is expected to report soon. Growth from WillHill would again highlight how lottery-run bookmaking can fall short.

Can we expect Record Breaking March Numbers for The Rest of The States?
