Sports betting has been legal in the state for nearly two years.

The Kansas Lottery has published the state’s sports betting results for the month of March. Last month’s sports betting handle reached nearly $253m.

Online bets generated almost $243m of the state’s total March handle, while retail locations brought in another $9.7m in wagers.

Total March revenue in Kansas reached $7.1m. Out of all of the state’s casinos, Boot Hill Casino & Resort brought in the largest piece of March’s revenue pie, with revenue reaching $4.7m last month.

Boot Hill, in partnership with DraftKings, also took in the largest number of online wagers during the month. The casino received nearly $98.3m in bets last month.

Kansas Star Casino & Resort and Kansas Crossing Casino & Resort grabbed the second and third place spots for largest March handles, taking in $70.2m and $54m respectively.

Last month, statewide sports betting paid $714,697 in taxes.

During March Kansas Crossing Casino’s online sportsbook was rebranded from PointsBet to Fanatics, according to the state report.

“All account balances on the PointsBet platform and all wagers placed through the platform prior to the rebranding were carried over to Fanatics,” the report said.

Sports betting has been legal in Kansas’ four casinos since 2022. However, historic horseracing (HHR) facilities are currently prohibited from having sportsbooks on site but can partner with mobile app providers to offer players online sports betting.

The Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission recently approved licensing for a Park City historic III gaming venue. Kansas passed a bill in 2022 to pave the way for both historic horseracing and sports betting. Senate Bill 84 outlines specific requirements, including allowing one facility in Sedgwick County.

Michael Hershman - Dispelling casino 'myths:' New York needs to lose fear of the unknown

Michael Hershman, CEO of the Soloviev Group, joins Tim Poole on the Huddle to put forward his case that the Freedom Plaza is the way to go for one of New York's casino licences. He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.

Five years ago, before the mass proliferation of social media we see today – and even before the Covid-19 pandemic – I think you would be hard pressed to find a CEO talking about “Instagrammable moments.” KPIs w...
