NJ tops Nevada in sports betting volume in May
Here’s all you need to know about how fast sports betting is growing in New Jersey: the state took in more sports bets last month than Nevada did to lead the nation.
According to gambling regulators in both states, New Jersey saw $318.9 million worth of bets, edging past Nevada, which took $317.4 million.
From those bets, New Jersey casinos and racetracks made $15.5 million in revenue, compared to $11.6 million in Nevada.
New Jersey won a U.S. Supreme Court case in May 2018 that cleared the way for all 50 states to offer legal sports betting.
