Rhode Island sports betting handle slips to three-year low in July

Players in Rhode Island spent $20.2m (£16.0m/€18.7m) wagering on sports in July, the lowest monthly total for three years.

The figure was 19.8% down from $25.2m in July 2022 and 14.8% lower than $23.7m in June of this year. It was also the shortest monthly spend since July 2020 when $6.7m was bet by players.

Some $15.4m of the monthly spend was attributed to online betting. A further $4.9m was wagered at retail sportsbooks within Twin River and Tiverton Casino, split $3.0m and $1.9m, respectively.

In terms of revenue, $1.9m was generated in Rhode Island in July. This was 34.5% behind $2.9m in 2022 but marginally ahead of $1.8m in June.

Of this total, $1.5m came from online betting, while retail’s share totalled $293,397. Twin River generated $298,879 in betting revenue but Tiverton Casino posted a $5,482 loss, bringing the total slightly down.
