Sports betting has been growing in popularity ever since its launch in New York. March saw record-breaking revenue numbers for mobile sports wagering sites. The New York State Gaming Commission recently reported that these sites generated almost $1.79 billion in revenue in March. This is a significant increase from the $1.47 billion earned in February and $1.64 billion earned in Mar. 2022.

The increased revenue was mainly attributed to the NCAA basketball tournament. The tournament typically generates a lot of excitement and attracts a lot of bettors. While March's revenue numbers fell just short of the all-time record set in January 2023, bookmakers still did better than ever regarding revenue. 

According to the gaming commission, online sportsbooks generated $162.8 million in gross gaming revenue in March 2023, a significant increase from the $108.3 million earned in February and the $114.3 million earned in Mar. 2022.

The revenue generated in March is also the highest ever generated by New York sports betting since mobile wagering was launched in January 2022. The online sportsbooks' gross revenue translated into a 9.1% hold for operators, an improvement over the 7.4% win rate reported in Feb. 2023.

Overall, March 2023 was a significant month for sports betting in New York, and the increased revenue generated by online sportsbooks is a positive development for the industry.
