The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board reported the total sports betting handle for March was $560.3 million, up from $509.5 million for February.

As with most comparisons to 2020 and its pandemic numbers, the 2021 month of March was way up. Sports betting last month revealed a 326.6 percent hike from the same period 12 months ago.

But numbers are still off a little since January when the total sports betting handle topped $615 million.

Gross revenue for March was north of $29 million, up 79 percent from February.

And, to no one’s surprise, mobile wagers accounted for $514.3 million of the total handle, typical of the approximately 90 percent rate for all wagers placed in the state.

The state gaming board report showed Valley Forge, which is partnered with FanDuel, leading the way with a handle of $205.9 million.

The Meadows Casinos in Pittsburgh (DraftKings partner) showed a betting handle of $118.4 million.

BetRivers handled $55 million in March while the Barstool Sportsbook app had more than $65 million in sports betting handle.
