The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced its January sports betting numbers this past weekend and the results were mighty encouraging.
The statewide handle was $32 million, generating $2.6 million in revenue.
SugarHouse Casino had the best performance in terms of handle as it captured $10.7 million. Here is the full list based on handle:
SugarHouse $10.7 million
Rivers Casino $9.5 million
Parx Casino $5.3 million
Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course $4.8 million
Parx South Philadelphia Turf Club $858,130
Harrah’s Philadelphia $615,704
It should be noted that the Parx locations as well as Harrah’s are only partial month returns as those locations did not start operating until mid-January.
Not surprisingly, these numbers were double that of the month of December when only a couple locations offered wagering. The sportsbooks were also helped by the Philadelphia Eagles run in the NFL playoffs.
