The state’s gross gaming revenue (GGR) surpassed $1.2 billion, with sports betting emerging as a primary revenue driver, raking in $228.7 million in adjusted gross revenue (AGR) for the period. The upcoming FY 2024 report anticipates even higher revenue, setting a benchmark of at least $100 million in sports wagering tax revenue.

While horse racing saw a slight decline in wagers in FY 2023, efforts to reverse this trend are underway in FY 2024. Despite a 4.6% decrease in wagers, distributions to the Race Horse Development Fund experienced a positive growth of $1 million (5.7%) year-over-year.

Amid the industry’s growth, Massachusetts has intensified its focus on responsible gambling initiatives. Participation in programs like the Voluntary Self-Exclusion (VSE) program and PlayMyWay surged in FY 2023. PlayMyWay, enabling players to monitor gambling budgets, saw enrollment soar by 37.3%.
