Pennsylvania took in $1.49 billion in sports bets in 2019, according to numbers released by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board on Thursday.

The total was boosted by a state-record month in December, with a sports wagering handle of $342.6 million.

An astounding 86.8% of the December handle came via mobile betting.

Operators made $84.1 million in revenue in 2019, led by FanDuel, which took in more than 38% of all sports bets ($570.7 million). FanDuel is also the market leader in New Jersey.

Combine Pennsylvania‘s $1.49 billion handle in 2019 with the expected $5 billion-plus in Nevada and the announced $4.5 billion in New Jersey, and the top three states in terms of sports betting will have generated more than $10 billion in bets in 2019 by the time all of the numbers come in.
