The state’s gaming revenue climbed 30.6%, month-over-month, from $29.708 million to $38.801 million in the Arizona November revenue report, showing the continued growth of Arizona’s sports betting market in its 15th month of operation.

The 17 operating sportsbooks (minus Fubo Sportsbook, which shut down in October) chipped in $3,876,207 in taxes during November, representing a 30.8% increase from October.

“It is exciting to see a second consecutive month of over $600 million wagered on sports by patrons within the state,” Ted Vogt, who serves as the director of the Arizona Department of Gaming, said in a department release. “This milestone highlights Arizona’s strong sports betting market, which has already established itself as a top-10 market nationally.”

The state gets a boost this month when it becomes the first legal betting market to host the Super Bowl. In the coming days there figure to be numerous Super Bowl 57 betting bonuses Arizona residents and visitors can use.
