New York state says more than $16 billion was wagered in the first year of mobile sports betting.

That generated $909 million – the most for any state in the nation.

Around $5 million of that will fund sports programs for underserved youths, and $6 million will go to problem gambling education and treatment.

The rest will go towards education funding.
