    Rhode Island has become the latest US state to set a new sports betting handle record in the month of October, with consumers wagering a total of $60.2m.

    The figure represents a 46.1% increase on the previous record of $41.2m, which was set in September of this year, while the total was also 73.5% higher than $34.7m in October 2020.

    The majority of wagers – $31.1m – were placed via mobile in October, while players also bet $29.0m at retail sportsbooks in the state.
