The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has reported that the state’s 8 licensed sportsbooks took in a “stunning” $183.9 million in bets during the month of September, nearly double the amount wagered in August; the start of the NFL season and the launch of several new mobile sportsbooks, are responsible for driving the growth.

Online and mobile wagering has already surpassed the state’s retail business, with 56.5% of all sports bets placed during the month of September, coming through those channels.

The $23.9 million held by New Jersey bookmakers after bets were paid out, was a +166% increase over August’s total and represented just shy of 8% of the total handle.

The state managed to keep $2.6 million in tax revenue from its sports betting operations.
