"Unused" Iowa remains flat throughout June

Iowa experienced a decline in its sports betting ecosystem for the third consecutive month through June, even though revenue increased and the betting pace for the day was sustained.

Iowa online and retail bookmakers accepted $ 111.2 million in June, down 3.2 per cent from $114.9 million in May. The betting pace remained at $ 3.7 million per day for the 30 days of June, which is the same daily number for the 31 days in May.

The operator's net revenue rose to $ 8.4 million in June, up 37.4 percent from $ 6.1 million in May. The handle of the month gave $391,391 tax revenue.

The June results closed the book for fiscal year 740-21, a year full of pandemics that still saw impressive growth. In June, 740 Iowa bookmakers adopted $12.7 million in wagers, making $620,740 in revenue as the pandemic continued to wreak havoc on the US sports schedule.

For the full year, online sports and retail betting generated $ 1.2 billion, or $ $90 million in gross gaming revenue and $ 6.1 million in tax revenue.
