Pennsylvania fantasy sports market continues to thrive

Fantasy Sports

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) on Wednesday released revenue figures from September fantasy contests. 

Following several months of mediocrity, perhaps even disappointment, fantasy sports contests generated a head-turning $2,133,713.97 last month. That total reflects a 126 percent increase from the $943,620.22 generated in August.

As for the rest of the industry, with their September revenue (and month-to-month performance):

  • DRAFT: $19,659.38 (82 percent increase)
  • Boom Fantasy: $1,336.87 (87.3)
  • Fantasy Draft: $1,088.58 $3,847.78 (-71.7)
  • Sportshub Technologies: $270.49 (-36.5)
  • Full Time Fantasy Sports: $241.50 (n/a)
  • Fantasy Football Players Championship: $0.00 (n/a)
  • Yahoo Fantasy Sports: -$12,049.35 (-987.08)

As shown, only DRAFT and Boom Fantasy joined DraftKings and FanDuel as operators enjoying month-to-month increases. Interesting note that Yahoo Fantasy Sports essentially asked for a refund, of $1,807.40, after finishing in the red in September.
