New Jersey took in more sports bets than Nevada last month, per AP.
By the numbers: New Jersey saw $318.9 million worth of bets; Nevada took in $317.4 million. "From those bets, New Jersey casinos and racetracks made $15.5 million in revenue, compared to $11.6 million in Nevada," per AP.
Why it matters: New Jersey won a Supreme Court case last year that cleared the way for all 50 states to offer legal sports betting.
- And the Garden State jumped into the market with both feet, with the goal of dethroning Nevada as the sports betting capital of America.
