The Super Bowl is the most talked-about media event in American sports. The Los Angeles Rams won the Vince Lombardi Trophy this season versus the Cincinnati Bengals in the SoFi stadium in Inglewood, California. Approximately over $7billion was bet on the Super Bowl 2022, with the largest bet ever made on the big game.
Some news from NY state! From the $2 billion wagered since the sports betting industry’s inception, $472.1 million in bets were placed in New York state’s online sportsbooks during the week of Super Bowl LVI. On to individual bets…
A Michigan player earned $1.5 million on DraftKings Sportsbook after the Los Angeles Rams won, thanks to a Million Dollar Free Bet. On Thursday, just days before the game, Drake announced that he had placed approximately $1.3 million in bitcoin on three different bets. Drake bet $600,000 on the Rams to win, $500,000 for Beckham to score, and another $500,000 on him to run 62.5 yards. The single largest wager in Super Bowl history was placed at Caesars Sportsbook during this year’s game. Mattress Mack bet $5,000,000 extra on the Bengals (+170) to win on the Caesars Sportsbook app in Louisiana after gambling $4.5 million. Unfortunately, the furniture salesman ended up losing the whole $9.5 million, but at least he made history!
