Washington DC Betting Market Continues Decline in November

Listen to this news articleLISTEN TO THIS ARTICLE:

The DC Lottery has published its betting results for November, showing a gross gaming revenue (GGR) of $1.2m. The latest figure was a decrease of 53.8% compared to the $2.6m gotten in November 2022. It also fell significantly from the $2m and $1.9m generated in October and September this year.

The sports betting handle for the month also dropped year-on-year by 20.1% to $17.1m. However, it was an increase from the $16.4m recorded in October. For some months now, Washington DC’s sports betting market has been experiencing a decline. The same trend was experienced last month as well as in August when the state recorded only $8.1m total handle.

The decrease in GGR led to reduced tax revenue for November at $122,801. However, it was a great month for bettors, with the average hold percentage resting at 7.17%.

Caesars Leads Market

In November, Caesars Sportsbook maintained its lead in the Washington sports betting market, even though its hold rate averaged 6.34%, trailing behind the state’s average of 7.17%. The operator achieved a handle of $6.1 m during the month, closely followed by Gambet with $5.9m.

BetMGM came third with a $3.9m handle, surpassing Flutter Entertainment-owned Fanduel's $804,438. However, in terms of revenue, Gambet secured the top position with $469,457. Caesars was second with $384,907 GGR.

Although Caesars accounted for the highest betting handle, it mirrored the state's trend of declining year-on-year. Its handle was a 9.9% decrease compared to November 2022, and its GGR dropped almost 60% from the $919,830 it generated the same month last year.
