New York’s sports betting revenue took a hit in November.
According to figures from the New York State Gaming Commission (NYSGC), New York’s four commercial sportsbooks generated just $1.3m in gross gaming revenue in November.
The figures show a 40.9% month-on-month decline on the $2.2m generated in October. November’s figures represent the lowest monthly revenue the state has seen since it launched sports betting in July.
It’s important to remember that the NYSGC reports do not display sports wagering handle.

Sports betting in NY
Six years ago, the Empire State legalized land-based sports wagering through the 2013 New York Economic Gaming Act. The passage of this law allowed four upstate casinos in New York to offer sports betting if the federal law prohibiting the activity was amended or overturned. New York officially launched legal and regulated sports betting in July, with the opening of the sportsbook at the Rivers Casino & Resort in Schenectady.
Several tribal casinos also offer sports betting in the state. In early August, two tribal casinos in New York also launched sports betting. The Oneida Indian Nation, in partnership with Caesars Entertainment, launched sports wagering at Turning Stone Casino in Verona and at Point Place Casino in Bridgeport.
Last week, an IGT powered sportsbook went live at the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort in Akwesasne, New York.
