The Colorado Department of Revenue reported Thursday that sportsbooks are claiming $20.8 million in gross revenue for Julyrecovering from the previous month’s Stanley Cup title won by the Avalanche which had helped drag down the results.
Operators recorded a success rate of just under 8.1% in July, almost six percentage points higher than in June. This helped offset the 17.5% drop in the handful to $258.4 million, which is generally related to the summer downturn in athletic activity.
The state benefited from the rise in revenue, as it was eligible to levy taxes on $14.2 million in adjusted revenue. It was the third highest amount in 27 months of betting in the Centennial State and was the first time that the percentage of adjusted earnings to gross earnings exceeded two-thirds.
Nearly $6.6 million in promotional credits and deductions were taken by sports betting operators, but this is the lowest monthly amount since just over $6 million was claimed in July from last year. This helped the state collect taxes on 68.4% of adjusted income, breaking the previous high of 61.3% in July 2021.
As a result, state coffers received nearly $1.1 million in revenue, bringing the total to $7.3 million for the year. That’s just over $900,000 ahead of last year’s pace in the first seven months.
