Sportsbooks in Pennsylvania took in more than $100 million in bets in August, according to a report by Darren Rovell of the actionnetwork.com.

In its first full month of online wagering, Pennsylvania reported $109 million in sports wagering, up 84 percent in July when the take was $59.3 million.

Leading the way was the popular online wagering site FanDuel, which pulled in $37.8 million in bets. An astounding 93.2 percent of that total came from online/mobile betting.

The rest of the betting handle was generated at its sportsbook at the Valley Forge Casino.

Sugarhouse, whose sportsbook operations are based in the state, took $30.4 million in bets, with online accounting for 82.4 percent of their handle.

Outside Nevada, New Jersey is still the biggest sports betting state, with $293.6 million bet on sports in the state in August.

Keep in mind those betting totals came before the National Football League kicked off its 100th season in September. Betting on NFL games, which see more action than any other sport, could possibly double that number.
