Consumers spent $322.9m betting online during November and a further $33.5m at retail sportsbooks.

While spending was higher, this was not reflected in the state’s monthly revenue figure. For November, revenue from online and retail wagering amounted to $19.4m.

This was significantly better than last year’s loss of $25.6m in Louisiana. The November 2022 loss was due to US businessman Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale winning several large bets on Major League Baseball’s World Series.

November’s revenue total was also 55.2% behind the October 2023 record of $43.3m.

Breaking down revenue performance, online betting generated $18.1m and retail $1.3m. It was also noted that $9.8m worth of promotions was deducted from the online total, as well as $13,962 from the retail figure.

Football was the sport of choice for online betting in Louisiana, generating $4.5m in revenue in November. As for retail, basketball led the way with revenue of $484,614.

Year-to-date handle exceeds $1.00bn
