A Super Bowl in Las Vegas Calls for Responsible Sports Betting

The largest event in the NFL was held in Las Vegas for the first time in history. Wagering has also grown in interest, marking an exciting night for the gaming industry. According to the Nevada Gaming Control Board, $185.6 million was wagered on the 2024 Super Bowl at the state’s 182 sportsbooks. Wagering this year surpassed the previous high of $179.8 million in 2022 and represented a 21.1% increase over 2023’s figure of $153.2 million. Sports betting remains one of the most popular forms of gambling in the industry.
