With online sports betting now legal across more than half of the US, the competition for bettors is heating up and new players are entering the market. In particular, the launch of ESPN BET in late 2023 is posing a strong competitive threat to existing market leaders.

To better understand which sportsbook apps and sites are most popular, YouGov surveyed 2,000+ US sports bettors. Drawing on the survey results, this exclusive research explores:

  • The impact ESPN BET's recent entry has had on the market
  • The in-app features that bettors expect to have
  • What features are most likely to drive prospective bettors to create their first account
  • How sportsbook rankings vary across age groups

We also provide insight into consumer preferences that could lead to ESPN BET having an advantage with prospective bettors moving forward.
