While Fanatics continues to ramp up operations nationally toward closing on its $225 million deal to acquire PointsBet, it performed relatively well when stacked up against its peers. Fanatics had a handle of $1.9 million in its first full month of wagering in Massachusetts and posted an 11.8% hold on gross revenue to claim nearly $225,000.
Its handle ranked a distant seventh among the state’s eight mobile operators, but Fanatics’ hold trailed only BetMGM’s and edged out FanDuel’s.
