$19.2 in gross online sports betting win
$1.71 million in gross online poker gaming win
What is really impressive is the $19.2 million in gross online sports betting win. The NFL preseason kicked off on August 8 along with college football starting up, which surely helped sportsbooks get back on track after a relatively slow July. With sports betting showing such promise for just preseason NFL games, the market is looking forward to a big September.
"Football is back and soon the MLB postseason will be here. Therefore the industry is expecting an even bigger September and October." said Rich Migliorisi, Managing Editor at BonusSeeker.com
