Maine sports bets reach $44 million in December

Sports Betting

It’s been just over two months since sportsbook betting became legal in the state. In that time, Mainers have wagered nearly $44 million.

Data from the Maine Gambling Control Unit shows from Nov. 3 to Dec. 3, nearly $35 million was wagered on the Draft Kings app. That figure was just over $8 million through Caesars Sportsbook.

Between both platforms, just under $38 million was paid out in winnings.

The information provided shows nearly $4.8 million in revenue for all parties involved. Maine’s 10% cut of that is almost $480,000.
