(Radio Iowa) — The amount of money bet on sports in Iowa increased again in November. The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission reports 59-point-three million dollars was spent on sports betting in November — nearly 13 million dollars more than October. Racing and Gaming Administrator Brian Ohorilko said he expected revenue to continue increasing as more casinos got their operations up and running. Betters have put down nearly 153-million dollars since sports wagering became legal in mid August. Fifty-six percent of the money was bet on-line. The state has taken in one-point-one million dollars in sports betting taxes.
