US Sports Betting & Wagering Statistics

Get the latest growth trends from all regulated US states

Since the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), the US sports betting market has opened up and a number of states have legalized wagering on sporting events. On this page, we will be tracking the key statistics and figures for the US sports betting market on a state-by-state basis.

Legal sports betting in the US was once limited to the state of Nevada, however, following the repeal of PASPA in 2018, every US state has the potential to legalize sports betting.

Most states have legalized the activity and as a result, the amount of sports betting revenue generated across the US has increased dramatically over the years.

Sports betting revenue for all states

The repeal of the PASPA ultimately led to the end of the federal ban on sports betting outside of Nevada. Before we breakdown just how much revenue sports betting has generated, here is a quick explanation of the terms you will see mentioned on this page:

Handle – The amount of money that has been wagered.

Revenue – The amount of money that sportsbooks have held onto out of the amount that has been wagered.

Tax – This is the amount of money that sportsbooks have paid to states and local jurisdictions.

State revenue – The amount of money a state has received as a result of revenue-sharing agreements.

West Virginia

West Virginia launched sports betting in 2018 thanks to a law that was approved before the fall of PASPA. Online sports betting was also legalized but Delaware North, the state’s only online operator, had to shut down along with two retail sportsbooks. Online sports betting came back to the state in August 2020.

Sports betting revenue is subject to a 10% tax rate.

Complete state reports can be accessed via the West Virginia Lottery portal.

*The West Virginia Lottery publishes sports betting figures on a weekly basis so some months may include figures from other months.

Wyoming

In April 2021, the state of Wyoming, out of nowhere, moved to legalize sports wagering in the state. Similar to the state of Tennessee, Wyoming’s sports betting market is entirely online.

Wyoming launched sports betting on 1 September 2021 with the launch of DraftKings and BetMGM.

The activity is subject to a 10% tax on sports betting revenue.

Complete sports betting reports can be accessed via the Wyoming Pari-mutuel Commission portal.
