US.- Arizona’s sports betting handle came in at $319m in June, a 31 per cent decrease from May’s $461.4m, according to the Arizona Department of Gaming (ADG). Arizona ranked 6th nationally in terms of the size of its handle.

Almost 99 per cent of bets were made online. Mobile sportsbooks reported a handle of $316m and retail sportsbooks $2.6m. With nearly $104m, FanDuel Sportsbook held 32.9 per cent of the market. It reported $7.6m in revenue. DraftKings Sportsbook came second with $92.8m in wagers, but reported a $3.2m loss. BetMGM completed took $59.7m in wagers and $5.4m in revenue.

“Despite June being a historically slower month for sports betting, Arizona figures were strong nationally,” ADG director Ted Vogt said. “Arizona operators contributed over $750,000 in privilege fees during June, resulting in nearly $17m in privilege fees since the start of legal operations in September 2021.”

Revenue for the month was $16.6m, the lowest revenue since Arizona sports betting launched in September 2021. The lowest until now was $29.2m in April, a 5.7 per cent hold. Arizona collected $761,801 in taxes in June.
