NHL Could See $216 Million in Revenue Annually Due to Legalized Sports BettingReading Time: 2 minutes

 

League to benefit from increased viewership, advertising, media and data rights fees

 

The National Hockey League’s (NHL) annual revenue may increase by $216 million annually due to widely available, legal, regulated sports betting, according to a new Nielsen Sports study commissioned by the American Gaming Association (AGA).

The study analyzes the revenue streams that legal sports betting could generate for the NHL: revenue as a result of spending from betting operators on advertising, data and sponsorship, and revenue generated as a result of increased consumption of the league’s media and products.

According to Nielsen Sports, greater fan engagement and viewership could boost the NHL’s total annual revenue from media rights, sponsorships, merchandise and ticket sales by 3.5 percent, producing $151 million in new revenue from increased consumption of the league’s products.

Legal sports betting could help the NHL generate an additional $65 million in revenue as a result of spending by betting operators and data providers. The study projects that gaming operators may spend $24 million on advertising, which will directly increase the league’s rights fees by the same amount. An additional $35 million in sponsorship revenue and $6 million in data is also projected for the league and its teams.

“Today’s announcement reaffirms that legal, regulated sports betting will create significant new revenue opportunities for sports leagues,” said Sara Slane, senior vice president of public affairs for the American Gaming Association. “Much like the NHL’s recent successful expansion into Las Vegas, legal sports betting will continue to expand across the country, bringing with it a $216 million opportunity for the league.”

To quantify the value of a legal sports betting market to the NHL, Nielsen Sports surveyed more than 1,000 adult sports fans – including NHL fans – and self-identified sports bettors nationwide to model how a national, legal sports betting market would affect the sports consumption habits of non-bettors, casual bettors and avid bettors, and how this change in consumption would translate to increased revenue.

New York State Lottery Reports Record Revenues for the 2018 Fiscal YearReading Time: 1 minute

 

The New York Lottery has recorded $8.2 billion in sales for the state fiscal year that ended in March 31, 2019. That includes sales from Powerball, Jackpot, Mega Millions, Scratch Off, Quick Draw and other games, plus revenues generated by the state’s licensed video lottery locations.

The video lottery net win for the 2018-2019 fiscal year was $2.08 billion, third largest in the world behind two Italian lottery operators. The combined sales and net win earnings for the last fiscal year are a new record for the New York Lottery. The New York Lottery generated $3.47 billion in aid designated to support the state’s schools.

The lottery revenues are distributed to school districts according to the same formula used for state aid. A larger, poorer district will receive a higher percentage than a smaller, more affluent one. Lottery contributions account for 13% of all state aid to education for 2018-2019.

Spillemyndigheden Introduces Whistleblower SchemeReading Time: 1 minute

 

Spillemyndigheden, the Danish industry regulator, has launched a new whistleblower scheme for the employees of gambling operators who wish to report evidence of money laundering.

Spillemyndigheden has detailed that employees can report a company’s violation or potential violation of the anti-money laundering legislation to the regulator via a dedicated, anonymous contact form which will then trigger a legal investigation. All submissions will be encrypted to ensure that submissions are secure.

In April, Spillemyndigheden has blocked access to 25 gambling websites after petitioning the country’s telecommunications providers. Danish internet providers have now been obliged to block access to ten igaming sites, in addition to 15 skin betting websites.
