West Virginia Online Casinos See a Minor Revenue Decline in January
The end of the year was a triumph for WV online casinos — they closed 2021 with almost $7 million in revenue, the all-time record for West Virginia iGaming. And even though they didn’t manage to beat their own game the next month, January 2022 saw only a small decline in profits.
In the first month of the new year, the WV online casino revenue amounted to almost $6.m million, which is a good start, to say the least.
This is what the WV casino apps leaderboard looked like in January:
- The Greenbrier leads the way with its BetMGM and FanDuel casinos, their revenue totaling $3.3 million;
- Hollywood Casino takes second place with its DraftKings and just-launched PoinsBet casino WV bringing $2.5 million in revenue;
- Mountaineer, the offline counterpart of BetRivers and Caesars casinos, was the only one seeing an increase in revenue but is still closing the top three with $982,000 in revenue.
The sports betting activities in West Virginia seem to be less popular in January as well: the betting handle saw a 14% decline when compared with the previous month, which is almost a $30 million drop.
