Bettors in Wyoming gambled $21.23 million online in sports throughout October. Not only is the figure a 10.26% increase from September, but it is the highest monthly amount since Wyoming launched its legal online sports betting market.

These are the other relevant numbers in October:

  • $2.27 million in wins for sportsbooks (gross gaming revenue)

  • $141,086 in taxes for the state

There are four licensed online sportsbooks in Wyoming: BetMGM, Caesars, DraftKings and FanDuel. DraftKings and BetMGM went live in September 2021, FanDuel launched in March 2022, and Caesars entered the market in August 2022.
