Super Bowl 50 Profitable for Nevada Sportsbooks

The 50th Super Bowl, played between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos, was especially profitable for Las Vegas sportsbetting operators, with the house taking home more than $13 million in profits.

The Silver State's licensed operators had their second-highest win total in the last ten years for Super Bowl Bets, following only the 2014 Super Bowl when the Seattle Seahawks beat the Broncos in an upset, with casinos winning $20 million from punters.

The event saw $132.5 million in bets placed, with the players losing 10.1% in margin to the casinos. This year Nevada saw a higher value of wagers, which combined with the upset occurring favored the house.

As of press time we had not heard any of the customary crazy stories related to Super Bowl bets, but we will post them as we learn of them.

Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events for the year and it's not strange that Las Vegas bookies have made such a huge profit this year. The more surprising the end result is the greater bookies profits are and this year it was quite an upset I think.

Everyone must have put money on the Panthers to blow out the Broncos, given Manning's noodle arm. Unfortunately for the gamblers, the Bronco D was insanely good.

Yeah you're right man, I was surprised too, just the Panthers were so team good all year long, but I don't think they've had the needed Super Bowl experience and we all forgot about the old rule that the defences wins the championships and what better example of that than this game.
