Looking at the breakdown by operator, FanDuel Sportsbook dominated the area.
Meadowlands Racetrack, its land-based partner, reported gambling revenue of $24.8 million ( PointsBet NJ accounts for a tiny portion of that number).
And of the total, $20.7 million was from mobile.
In terms of the next closest NJ sports betting competition, Resorts Digital ended a very distant second with $10.5 million.
DraftKings Sportsbook is responsible for the bulk of it, however Resorts Sportsbook and Fox Bet collapse under Exactly the Same umbrella.
In terms of how the rest of the discipline failed, here is a breakdown:
Hard Rock Atlantic City is currently enjoying a progress. This time this past year, the permit holder has been sitting betting sidelines.
This soccer season, Unibet NJ and also Bet365 NJ started their various programs under the Hard Rock license. Both new improvements along with Hard Rock stage is beginning to look like a trifecta.
The land reported 1.9 million in sport betting revenue, with the majority ( $1.8 million ) coming through mobile programs.
Part of this might need to do with a enormous wager that Unibet approved from a JimMattress Mack McIngvale. According to Legal Sports Report, the total amounted to $1.25 million. Macks stakes on his hometown Houston Astros to win the World Series did not win of course.
But that performance is good among AC possessions. Ocean Casino Resort and its venture with William Hill NJ claimed the No. 2 place using $2.3 million.
