According to the latest monthly revenue numbers published by the Indiana Gaming Commission (IGC), sportsbooks in the state took in $463.7 million in bets for the month of November, eclipsing the previous record of $461.1 million set in October by 0.6%.  The industry also saw a massive year-on-year increase in betting handle as the figure jumped by 84.4% from November 2020’s $251.4 million.

Licensees across the state combined to generate $47.7 million in taxable sports betting revenue, an increase of 72.1% from the $27.7 million won in October, and up 88.5% from November the $25.3 million posted in the same period last year.

The revenue for November was also a new high for Indiana. The previous record for revenue was $33.9 million, achieved in September this year.

The state collected a record $4.5 million in sports wagering taxes during the month, up 73.1% from the $2.63 million collected in October and 87.5% higher than November 2020’s $2.4 million. Indiana taxes its sportsbooks at the rate of 9.5% of adjusted gross revenue.

Basketball betting came in a close second as the amount staked on the sport jumped by a whopping 146.9% from October’s $53.5 million to hit $132.1 million in November. The massive increase in football betting handle was partly fueled by the return of college basketball on November 9.
