Iowa Sports Betting Handle Increases in August

Iowa experienced four consecutive months of lower sports betting handles before things improved in August. According to numbers posted by the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission, the Hawkeye State had an August handle of $108.4 million. This was a 21.9% increase from July’s $88.9 million. The total posted in July was the first time since November 2020 that the handle was less than $100 million.

The impressive online numbers in Iowa make it an attractive location for Circa to launch its sports betting offering. Mobile wagering made up most of the overall market in August, totaling $96.1 million of the handle, a jump of 23.3% from July’s $77.9 million.

The figures in August were aided by the return of preseason NFL betting in addition to the start of college football betting. The numbers will likely increase in Iowa as the regular NFL season is now in full swing.
