New York online sports betting had another down week and gross gaming revenues are at their lowest weekly level since the state’s January launch.

The New York State Gaming Commission reported $270,690,318 in online sports bets for the week ending June 5.

Gross Gaming Revenues lowest since launch

However, the commission reported gross gaming revenue at just $10.76 million, the state’s lowest weekly total ever, even less than the state’s two-day week launch in January.

It’s not necessarily unexpected, as the Empire State is moving into the summer and there are less options for New York bettors. The decreasing handle and gross gaming revenue figures will likely rebound in the fall during football season.

The New York State Gaming Commission released handle and revenue reports for Caesars Sportsbook NYDraftKings Sportsbook NYFanDuel NYBetMGMWynnBET NYPointsBet NY, and BetRivers NY for the week ending June 5.


Here are the handles for the eight sportsbooks for the week. Like last week, FanDuel was again the top operator:
