The American Gaming Association (AGA) has posted July 2023's commercial gaming revenue for the US, showing that the country's total GGR (gross gaming revenue) has hit $5.39bn for the month – 6% higher than the same period last year.

For slots, total GGR hit $3.13bn, up 3% on last year – retaining its position as by far the largest gambling market in the US. Meanwhile, table game GGR was $976.3m, up 2% on July 2022 – making it the second-largest market in the US.  

Sports betting GGR has increased by 28% year-on-year, which comes as no surprise, as this year has seen several sports betting launches in new markets, with the likes of Massachusetts and Ohio both opening up to retail and online sports betting.

However, coming in just behind sports betting’s total was the iGaming market, which saw a 23% increase in revenue, now totalling $481.5m.

Looking at the aforementioned states of Massachusetts and Ohio, Massachusetts made a total of $128.8m in commercial gaming revenue, while Ohio made $240.7m.

However, the largest state by far remains Nevada, where the Las Vegas Strip is located, which saw commercial gaming revenue of $1.4bn for July 2023, a 4% increase year-on-year.

Meanwhile, New Jersey made $506.2m in commercial gaming revenue, an increase of 11% annually and the second-largest sum recorded after Nevada. Additionally, Pennsylvania recorded $470.4m – also up 11% year-on-year. These two states will be the main focus of the forthcoming Gambling Insider magazine for September/October.
