CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Virginia Lottery says people in the commonwealth bet a record-high $427 million on sports in October.

They won $397 million that month.

The Virginia Lottery says the state saw a 45.4% revenue increase in sports betting in October, due in part to NFL and college football.

Virginia has recorded $2.4 billion in wagering since the state legalized sports betting back in January.
