Las Vegas Advisor: Nevada Sportsbook Sets Super Bowl Betting Record
Nevada sports betting set a record with $179.8 million in Super Bowl wagers, a 12% increase from the previous record of $158.5 million set in 2018. Los Angeles Rams over Cincinnati Bengals meant the Rams and under (total runs scored) bettors got the money, although Bengals bettors who took +4 on the run spread also cashed in. Books took home $15.4 million, or 8.6% of the handful. The house doesn’t always win, but it usually does – it was the 30th time in 32 years that the casinos won the Super Bowl.

Return of the Light: After being closed for nearly two years, Mandalay Bay’s Light Nightclub celebrated its grand reopening last month with performances by Wyclef Jean and Sam Hunt. Light’s return is significant as it is the last of the major casino-based nightclubs to reopen.
Keno closed: The Fremont closed its keno parlor which was famous for its progressive 5-point 95¢ that increased by $25 a day. The closing continues the trend of eliminating live keno in Las Vegas.
