NJ tops Ne­vada in sports bet­ting volume in May

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

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.
