Super Bowl bettors in Las Vegas wagered a record amount on Sunday’s Denver vs. Seattle Super Bowl.
They also lost a record amount, according to the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
Fans bet $119.4 million at Nevada casinos, more than $20 million more than last year’s record when Baltimore upset San Francisco. The Vegas profit of $19.7 million was also a record.
“It was a marquee battle of offense versus defense and Peyton Manning drove the hype for bettors, who just had to have some action on this game,” said Jack Randall of OddsShark.com.
