New Hampshire sports betting handle halts decline in March

New Hampshire’s sports betting handle reached $72.6m (£58.2m/€68.2m) in March, ending a run of three straight months of decline.

In March, New Hampshire reported a 16.5% month-on-month increase in sports betting handle, likely boosted by the March Madness NCAA tournament.

New Hampshire had previously seen its handle drop for three consecutive months, even with the Super Bowl in early February.

New Hampshire’s March figures were aided by its mobile sector, with online accounting for $65.0m in bets taken, or 89.5% of the monthly total, having recorded a handle of $55.9m in February.

Retail handle also increased, jumping 18.8% to $7.6m from February’s figure of $6.4m.

New Hampshire revenue down despite handle rise

Although New Hampshire’s handle ended its slide, revenue continues to falter in the Granite State.

March’s gross gaming revenue stood at $5.6m, the third-lowest in its FY2024 and the lowest since August 2023, prior to the NFL season getting underway.

Consequently, the se..

FanDuel likely has two-year head start on competition in Washington, DC

Buried in the minutiae of a 10 April budget meeting, Washington DC's Office of Lottery and Gaming (OLG) revealed that it is preparing to ask the DC City Council to approve a two-year extension to its deal with lottery and sports betting operator Intralot.

To recap, the OLG in March alerted the DC Council that it would be unwinding its chronically underperforming sports betting platform, GambetDC. The platform is run by lottery vendor Intralot.

Under its existing contract, the agreement will expire on 14 July. In March, OLG approved Intralot’s request to subcontract online sports betting to FanDuel.

Now the agency will request a two-year extension for the soon-to-expire deal. If approved, the deal could mean that FanDuel would have a two-year head start on digital sports betting in the District.

That two years, lottery chief Frank Suarez told the DC Council’s Committee on Business and Economic Development, would allow it enough time to issue an RFP (request for proposal). This ..

Tennessee market bounces back in March as gross wagers hit $473.6m

Gross mobile sports betting wagers in Tennessee increased 20.6% year-on-year to $473.6m (£379.7m/€444.4m) in March, halting three consecutive months of decline.

The monthly total was some way ahead of the $392.7m wagered in Tennessee in March last year. It was also 25.2% more than the $378.2m spent by players in February of this year.

However, the March total was some way short of the record in Tennessee. Players wagered an all-time monthly high in November 2023.

After taking into account $1.6m in adjustments, cross handle for Tennessee in March was $472.0m.

In terms of privilege tax from sports betting, the state collected a total of $8.7m. This was up 24.8% from February’s $7.0m but 0.5% down on the previous year, despite the handle rise.

The Tennessee Sports Wagering Council does not publish data regarding monthly revenue, nor any information on individual operator performances.

Indiana betting handle falls just short of monthly record in March

Players in Indiana spent $500.8m (£401.9m/€470.1m) betting on sports during March, an improvement on last year and only narrowly lower than the state’s monthly record.

Handle was 15.7% higher than $433.0m in Indiana in March last year and 22.5% more than $408.7m in February. The total was also just 2.5% behind the all-time monthly high of $513.7m posted in November 2023.

Basketball again proved the most popular sport to wager on, drawing a total of $167.9m in total bets in March. The state is home to National Basketball Association team the Indiana Pacers.

In contrast, $9.9m was wagered on baseball and just $1.7m American football. A further $173.0m was bet on other sports and $148.1m parlay bets.

Indiana revenue dips to $39.4m

While handle was higher year-on-year, the same could not be said for revenue. In total for March, taxable adjusted gross revenue amounted to $39.4m.

The monthly revenue total was 7.9% lower than $42.8m in March 2023 and only 3.7% more than $39.0m in Februa..

State of the Union: A look at the week that was in North America

Welcome to iGB's State of the Union, a look at the biggest North American sports betting stories we've covered over the week and briefs on others we found interesting.

Bally Bet aiming for June Massachusetts launch

Saying “our commitment is strong here”, on Thursday (11 April) representatives from Bally Bet told the Massachusetts Gaming Commission that it is aiming for a late June launch in the Bay State. Bally’s had previously promised a “late Q2” launch, but hadn’t put a date on it. The company has had a temporary sports betting licence in the state since early 2023. When Bally Bet launches it will bring the total number of digital platforms available in Massachusetts to seven after Betr and WynnBet exited the state earlier this year.

“Having someone that we’ve started with the licensing process, a group come in and actually get going, is exciting to us,” interim MGC chair Jordan Maynard said during the meeting.

ASA reiterates ad guidelines ahead of Euro 2024 and warns against targeting minors

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has warned operators against targeting minors with advertising ahead of the upcoming Euro 2024 tournament.

Euro 2024 gets underway on 14 June, with sports betting activity likely to skyrocket during the tournament in Germany. Ahead of the event, the ASA has reiterated to operators their guidelines on what will be prohibited in their advertising.

The ASA highlighted the UK Code of Non-broadcast Advertising and Direct & Promotional Marketing (CAP Code). The CAP Code stipulates that gambling operators must not feature anybody under the age of 25 in their advertising, including footballers. However, there is an exception for websites where bets can be placed directly.

The ASA also warned that ads mustn’t involve any player deemed to have a strong appeal to those under 18.

ASA reiterates other guidelines

The ASA has cautioned that operators shouldn’t mislead audiences by implying official endorsement from players and teams. The ASA did also sta..

Charting Nigeria’s online gambling growth amid regulatory battles

One of the most exciting emerging global online gambling markets is Nigeria, boasting a youthful population that H2 Gambling Capital forecasts to lead it to gross gaming revenue (GGR) of €675.1m (£576.8m/$717.2m) by 2025. With a legal battle over regulation ongoing, though, how exactly is it achieving its success?

Firstly, it’s imperative to note the demographics of Nigeria, which is the most populous country in Africa with well over 200 million inhabitants. According to a report from The Economist, that population is predicted to grow to 400 million by 2050, surpassing the US as the third most-populous country on the planet.

Looking closer at Nigeria’s data reveals a hugely youthful population, with figures from the World Factbook outlining that approximately 41% of people in the country are aged between 14 and under, with the average age of a person in Nigeria just 19 years old.

Taking those demographics aspects into account it’s clear to see why there is excitement over how Niger..
