DraftKings, FanDuel and BetMGM all recorded more in total handle during Tennessee’s Nov. 1 sports-betting launch than each had on any other states’ opening day.

Tennessee’s four legal sportsbooks, including Nashville-based Tennessee Action 24/7, took in $5.1 in wagers on opening day. The quartet recorded $27 million in total handle between Nov. 1-8, the first stretch of revenue figures announced by the Tennessee Education Lottery.

“We’re off to a great start,” TEL president and CEO Rebecca Paul Hargrove said during a meeting Monday.

The four sportsbooks combined to split roughly $800,000 in revenue on Nov. 1 alone. Between Nov. 1 and Nov. 8, the quartet netted $2.5 million in combined adjusted net revenues, which in turn generated more than $500,000 in state tax revenues.
