Record $119.4M Bet On Super Bowl In Nevada Casinos

Sports Books Win Unprecedented $19.67 Million


More details have come out with regards to how Nevada sports books performed on Super Bowl Sunday.

According to the state Gaming Control Board, wagers amounted to a record $119,400,822.

The Silver State has 183 sports books.

The casinos won $19,673,960 from the game, or 16.5 percent of the bets. That’s also apparently a record. Seattle beat Denver by a score of 43-8. Denver was minus-2.5 against Seattle.

The amount won by the casinos was almost as much as the last four Super Bowls combined.

Since 2005, Nevada sports books have lost on the game just once. That was in 2008 when the N.Y. Giants beat the New England Patriots by a score of 17-14.

Only one other loss was recorded in the more than two decades of the Super Bowl being tracked as its own entity by Nevada gaming officials.

In 2013, Nevada casinos won just over $200 million on sports betting, up around 19 percent from 2012. That $200 million marked a win percentage of 5.6 percent.

Football accounted for nearly $81 million of that total win.
