$11 Billion Lost on Super Bowl Betting!

Las Vegas, Nevada (February 2, 2011) – Las Vegas began accounting for Super Bowl action separately exactly 20 years ago. RJ Bell of reports . . .

* Vegas has won money on 18 of the last 20 Super Bowls - the exceptions being 2008 (Giants vs. Pats) and 1995 (49ers vs. Chargers).

* Over $114 Million – that’s the net amount players have lost to Vegas on Super Bowl betting alone the last 20 years.

* Over $11 Billion – that’s the estimated net amount players have lost WORLDWIDE on Super Bowl betting alone the last 20 years. Note that studies approximate that Las Vegas handles only 1% of the overall Super Bowl action.

RJ Bell of said: “More than half of adult Americans are expected to have some money at risk on Super Bowl XLV. It’s vital for novices to risk no more than a recreational amount since the bookie’s edge famously is difficult to overcome.”

Super Bowl XLV is expected to be the biggest bet Super Bowl EVER, with over $10 Billion riding on the game worldwide. This would be the largest bet single-day sporting event in history.
