Ameristar East in Chicago and its DraftKing sportsbook had the largest share of the handle with $138.5m. The FanDuel operated Blue Chip Casino’s sportsbook was next with $78.1m, followed by Hollywood Lawrenceburg with $38.6m.

The $33.8m worth of revenue generated in Indiana – a 99.4% increase on August – was also a state record.

Blue Chip proved to be the revenue leader, generating $10.7m. Ameristar East was second with $8.3m, followed by Hollywood Lawrenceburg with $4.9m.
