BetKansas has released predictions for Kansas sports betting handle ahead of the state’s soft launch of sports betting.
Using Arizona as a comparison, estimates predict that Kansas will see $1.78 billion in handle in the first year due to similar open wagering markets and longstanding ties to NFL and MLB teams.
If this estimate is correct, Kansas sportsbooks would earn $150 million in their first year of operation. This would put Kansas ahead of Louisiana, which had a monthly handle of $142.5 million between November 2021 and June 2022. It would also put it ahead of Indiana, Iowa, and Wyoming, which have monthly averages of $100.1 million, $32.6 million, and $8.7 million, respectively. This prediction is significant because the population of Kansas is significantly lower than that of the aforementioned states, with the exception of Wyoming. Kansas has a rich college sporting tradition, which, combined with the state’s annual Nascar race, makes the state appealing to sportsbooks and operators. Hollywood Crossing will work with Barstool and FoxBet, Kansas Star Casino will work with FanDuel and BetMGM, Kansas Crossing will work with PointsBet and Caesars, and Boot Hill will work with Bally Bet and DraftKings.

The state will begin accepting sports bets on September 1, with the market officially opening on September 8, one week before the start of the 2022 NFL regular season.

Kansas Governor Laura Kelly signed the sports betting bill into law on May 12, making the state one of the quickest from legalization to launch.
