Detailed Notes (Last Updated: 6/28/20)
Calculating Hold %
While tempting, we should not simply calculate Hold % for a given month by dividing Revenue by Handle. Sports wagering gross gaming revenue is reported on a cash basis in. Wagers on future events are taxed as current revenue and payouts for winning wagers are recognized in the period redeemed.
Delaware taxes are taken from the "State Share" line item on the "Distribution of Net Proceeds" report
Indiana reports "Taxable Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR)" after adjustments that are specified as "any miscellaneous adjustments, loss carry over, and uncollectible deduction." We removed these adjustments before reporting monthly Revenue so as to provide a more accurate picture of consumer betting behavior.
Nevada redacted April 2020 sports wagering figures as casinos were closed; they have been assumed to be $0
Nevada occasionally reports nominal Revenue figures on "Sports Pari-Mutuel" line item; for the time being, these values have been excluded from our calculations
Some of the 2020 Nevada tax breakdowns were assumed to be pro-rata, based on the officially-reported aggregate number
Some historical New Hampshire data is sourced from various news articles, where official state reports could not be located
To calculate the breakdown of Taxes for New Jersey, the 8.5% rate for retail and 13.0% rate for online were each applied to their respective revenue figures, with the results then being normalized to align with the state's reported total Tax revenue figure.
When applicable, Pennsylvania Revenue figures are recorded from the "Revenue" line item as opposed to the "Gross Revenue (Taxable)" line item.
West Virginia's breakdown of Handle into Retail vs. Online is accomplished by extrapolating the ratio for that month's Revenue, as reported by the State.
