Sportsbooks took in $178 million in wagers in April, according to data informally released during a conference call with state officials on Tuesday. That is down 13.6% from $205.9 million in March, though up slightly from the $176.3 million generated in February.

With April’s bets, Tennessee sportsbooks have now generated $1.1 billion in wagers since November’s launch. That makes Tennessee the fastest to the mark, topping New Jersey, which reached $1 billion in its seventh month.
