New York Leads States in May Sportsbook Handle

Sports betting is easily the biggest- and fastest-growing market in the United States.

You don’t believe me? Well, let the numbers tell the story.

A little more than four years ago, the United States Supreme Court overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992.

Since their landmark ruling, 30 states plus the District of Columbia have jumped into the legal betting industry bringing in gargantuan revenues.

States around the country released their sports betting numbers for May. The strong results indicate that while inflation may be affecting the stock market, it certainly has not deterred bettors from making investments on sporting events.
