Sportsbooks in New Jersey Take $143.7M in Wagers for Super Bowl LVI
Data from New Jersey sportsbooks tell us $143.7M was wagered on the game, a 22.4% increase over last year’s takings.
Sportsbooks paid $135.9M in winning bets on the game, which left $7.8M in profit as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tasted victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Even though 2021 saw sportsbooks take a smaller $117.4M on the Super Bowl, they paid out a total of just $106.1M for a larger profit of $11.3M.
Earnings aside, though, there has been an upward trend in bets placed, both in terms of the dollar amount and number of bets.
GeoComply Solutions, whose geographic location software is part of the verification tech to ensure players are gambling in legal states, reported over 80 million transactions over the 2022 Super Bowl weekend, more than doubling the total of 2021.
