Kansas' Sports Betting Handles Rises 43% Year-Over-Year in May Despite Dip

(July 6, 2024) - Kansas Lottery reported that $172.2 million was wagered for the month, while adjusted revenue reached $9.8 million.

A 9.9% hold on gross revenue led to $17.2 million in profits, up 18% year-over-year. Adjusting for promotions, federal tax, and net carryover from the previous month, May's revenue of $9.8 million was up 10% from a year ago, while falling 6% month-over-month.

Kansas sportsbooks have thus far generated more than $1 billion in handle year-to-date. June is the final month of the fiscal year, and the total amount wagered has already topped $2 billion - well ahead of the previous year’s $1.85 billion.

None of these numbers include offshore sportsbooks or local pay per head bookies.

More gambling numbers....

Currently, only Hollywood Casino and Resort has reported higher YTD revenue totals when compared to 2023.

The Boot Hill Casino and Resort reported a gaming revenue total of $4.06m for May 2024, an increase from the $3.9m figure the resort reported for May 2023.

Kansas Star Casino and Resort has also reported an increase in comparable gaming revenue figures, seeing a 10.2% increase in gaming revenue from the $12.7m total it reported for May 2023.

Will Kansas State Win Every Game This Fall?

(July 6, 2024) - Kansas State may be favored to win Under 9.5 regular season games in 2024 at -145, but don't tell that to the Gold Sheet. 

That's right, the Gold Sheet has KSU winning all 12 of their regular season games.

This isn't your every day handicapping site.  Founded in 1957, the GoldSheet is the country’s longest-running sports betting newsletter. Each week, the GoldSheet team delivers analysis on all NFL and college football games, along with key NBA and college basketball matchups.

The GoldSheet maintains in-depth point spread and results logs, giving sports bettors and enthusiasts the insight needed to maximize their wagers.

In half of the games, K-State is favored to win by 12 or more points.

Athlon Sports had this to say: "Given that K-State upgraded at quarterback with rising star Avery Johnson ready to step into the spotlight and has skill-position talent, the Wildcats could be dangerous. If the offensive line holds up, they should be able to pair an effective offense with an experienced defense and challenge for a second Big 12 title in three years under coach Chris Klieman.

"Linebackers Austin Moore and Desmond Purnell have 244 career tackles between them. K-State coaches feel like they have two All-Big 12-caliber safeties in Marques Sigle and VJ Payne, and Ball State transfer Jordan Riley is one of the better pickups in the entire conference."

Pros and Cons of Gambling in Kansas

There are very few restrictions when it comes to Kansas regulated websites outside of the limited competition at this time.  The state promises licensing up to around a dozen sites but the population really does not allow for this.  Be prepared to provide your social security number when joining one of the six regulated sites.  Many in the state still opt for local bookies as they offer anonymity, lack of reporting and often more options, not to mention betting on credit.  Local bookies, however, are not regulated by the state.
